Micah by Laurell K. Hamilton

This is a novella written by Hamilton that precedes her forthcoming title Danse Macabre. In this title (read in an hour or two), Anita is called to Philly to raise a zombie, and takes her Nimir-Raj, Micah, with her.

Because this is the first time they will be alone together (if you've read the other books, you know Anita is NEVER alone in bed), Anita rants, raves and pouts while dealing with her increasing power and romantic confusion with her lovers.

As with Hamilton's later Anita Blake novels, this one is rife with lots of sex and violence - but you know a bit more about Micah's background, which is nice. And hey, zombies.

An okay read, but a bit empty as a substitute for the rest of the series. Eh.
