Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!


Vampire hunter Anita Blake has managed to overcome everything she faces. But this time there’s a monster that even she doesn’t know how to fight…

A remote Florida island is the perfect wedding destination for the upcoming nuptials of Anita’s fellow U.S. Marshal and best friend Edward. For Anita, the vacation is a welcome break, as it’s the first trip she gets to take with wereleopards Micah and Nathaniel. But it’s not all fun and games and bachelor parties…

In this tropical paradise Micah discovers a horrific new form of lycanthropy, one that has afflicted a single family for generations. Believed to be the result of an ancient Greek curse, it turns human bodies into a mass of snakes.

When long-simmering resentment leads to a big blowout within the wedding party, the last thing Anita needs is more drama. But it finds her anyway when women start disappearing from the hotel, and worse–her own friends and lovers are considered the prime suspects. There’s a strange power afoot that Anita has never confronted before, a force that’s rendering those around her helpless in its thrall. Unable to face it on her own, Anita is willing to accept help from even the deadliest places. Help that she will most certainly regret–if she survives at all, that is… 


Anita Blake is celebrating her 25th anniversary this year with Serpentine! What better way to celebrate than with a book that includes all Four Horsemen! I think I love them more than the love interests in Anita’s life. They just seem tougher and more dangerous than even the shifters and vampires. Plus that whole freaky thing with Otto/Olaf just gives me shivers.

Serpentine releases in just a couple weeks, on 8/7/18. Don’t forget to grab a copy! Also, I noticed that LKH is doing some touring for this book. She’s going to be in my city on the 10th. I’m wanting to go, especially to get a signed book, but her events are always nuts. She has SO many fans! You will want to check out the bookstores in your area to see if she will be stopping during her tour. In Dallas, she’s going to be at the Half Price Books and you can get a ticket from their website. Also, if you are like me and release day slips by too fast. Preorder Serpentine so you’ll have it ready!
