This exploration of author Laurell K. Hamilton's work examines the many novels of her series and shows how her writing has been a major influence on contemporary visions of the vampire—an ideal reference text for book club leaders. Long before Twilight achieved epic levels of popularity, Laurell K. Hamilton was reshaping the image of the vampire with her own take on the vampire mythos in her Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter fantasy novel series. While Hamilton's work draws on traditional vampire and fairy lore, her interpretation of these subjects brought new dimensions to the genres, influencing the direction of urban fantasy over the past two decades. Reading Laurell K. Hamilton focuses upon Hamilton's two bestselling series, the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series and the Merry Gentry series. The volume is intended as a resource for leaders of book clubs or discussion groups, containing chapters that examine Hamilton's role in the current vampire literature craze, the themes and characters in her work, and responses to Hamilton on the Internet. The book also provides a brief overview of Hamilton's life.

Frost, a magical black-and-white collie with bright sky-blue eyes, belongs to St. Nick (also known as Santa Claus) who just moved into the forest. After hearing about a Christmas tree town called White Winter in the center of the North Pole, he decided it was the perfect place to start production on children’s toys with the elves who lived in the Forest. Frost has been with St. Nick for a very long time, and together they have traveled the world, gifting presents to all of the good children. As more children behave and the demand for toys grew, St. Nick needed something more permanent but secluded from the eyes of all humans. Firefrost and Frostyivy, two twin sister elves who live in the largest of the Christmas trees, are the guardians of the Christmas Tree Spirit, a magical spirit who lives in the tree with them, guarding the elf community against all humans. The Christmas Tree Spirit is also responsible for lighting the North Star on each Christmas Eve. But the North Pole is a dangerous place as the Children of Winter, the wild wolves, prowl the landscape, searching for food. St. Nick has a mission, but so does Frost. For while St. Nick is busy with the building of his new toy factory, Frost has been busy rescuing the orphaned animals of these wild wolf attacks since he arrived. St. Nick has no time for the baby animals, but the elf sisters do. In Frost’s head, he has a purpose to bring together these eleven orphaned animal babies for one magical purpose; and he is counting on Firefrost, Frostyivy, and the Christmas Tree Spirit to help guard his master’s secret from the world of all humans.

Now I must stay alive to see my children born, as conspirators from every court plot against me and mine. They seek to strip my guards, my lovers, from me by poisoned word or cold steel. But I still have supporters, and even friends, among the goblins and the sluagh who will stand by me. Those who would defy and destroy me are destined to pay a terrible price. To protect what is mine, I will sacrifice anything–even if it means waging a battle against my darkest enemies and making the most momentous decision ever made as princess of faerie.
