We’re celebrating 25 years of #1 New York Times bestselling author Laurell K. Hamilton’s wildly popular Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series this summer!
Since 1993, Laurell has treated readers to her tough-as-nails and unapologetically feminine heroine. In August, Anita is back with the release of SERPTENTINE (August 7, 2018).
In SERPENTINE, Anita must face something scarier than any monster she has ever fought: her best friend’s wedding. Edward, legally known as U.S. Marshall Ted Forrester, is finally marrying his longtime girlfriend, Donna. Anita isn’t looking forward to dressing up and serving as best man, but the trip to Florida for the ceremony should provide some time to relax. Of course, when female hotel guests begin to disappear, relaxation time is over because it’s time for Anita and her fellow Marshals to get back to work.

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...
