Narcissus in Chains

Laurell K. Hamilton, author of the New York Times bestseller A Kiss of Shadows, returns to the series that started it all. Narcissus in Chains, the tenth installment in the ever-popular Anita Blake series, finds everyone’s favorite vampire hunter back on her home turf and delving into the heart of human—and non-human—darkness.

Men are men. Jean Claude and Richard are each something else entirely. Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, torn between them, has been avoiding both vampire and werewolf for months. But when a kidnapper targets innocents she has sworn to protect, Anita turns to them for help, which will require harnessing both their powers—and their hungers…

Six months of celibacy have made Anita crave the two men in her life like never before. But merging their powers together will give this mortal woman a taste of immortal hunger that she’ll never be able to forget.

  1. I am a devoted fan, and I have the entire Anita Blake collection in hard copy but I enjoy listening to the audiobook version while I’m driving. Why is there not a audiobook of Narcissus in chains yet, I’m trying to have a complete collection. Thank you

  2. Please Are we ever going to get an Unabridged copy of Narcissus in Chains in Audio Book??????
    I would live to complete my collection and I do the Cassette Abridge version published in the early 2009 I believe but it is really not the same?????

    1. I have been listening to your series and I’ve come to Narcissus in Chains. Will there be an audio version of this. I usually only have time to listen when I clean with a 1 year old running around. Please let us know if there will be one available

  3. Please do a audiobook for all of the books in the series. I know I don’t have as much time to physically read. Love the auidbooks I get to listen to it while I work and do other things. Thanks!!!

  4. I have already read all of the books in this series, minus the last four, and I LOVE them!!!!!! I decided to re-read the books, but do not find enough time in the day to read, so I started listening to the audiobooks. Now….I am extremely disappointed that I can not continue with the next few books, I can’t find them on audiobooks. I am hoping that they will be released very soon…..until then I have been getting started on the Merry Gentry series, which is also an excellent series.

  5. I have searched everywhere for the audio book of Narcissus in chains and still can not find it or it tells me its unavailable. Please tell me where or how I can get this! It is the next cd my husband needs to continue his series. Being a truckdriver he loves to listen to these audio books. Thanks in advance!

  6. HELP! I also need the audio cd version of Narcissus in chains for my husband! He has all the others ands waiting in this one!

  7. I would really like to listen to the 6 books in the middle of this series on audible! Makes work go by so quick! I love it! When will this become available???? The last 4 are on there why not the rest????

  8. Is the question of an audio edition of Narcissus in Chains ever going to be answered here or anywhere else? I check about every 3 months, and nothing changes other than the number of people asking the same question. Please, if you are part of LKH’s team, can you at least answer her fans chasing this elusive audio book?

    1. We are working on getting an unabridged version of this book made, but it is a slow going process. -MM Jess

      1. Listening to the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is the ONLY enjoyment in my life, I can not read the books, I am limited to listening to them, I have looked every where for this in audio and from book 10-16 I can’t find them anywhere.
        I have purchased Audable credits, so i can listen to the entire series, Is there any updates to when these may become available for purchase?

      2. I’ll read it if you record it! I’m no Kimberly Alexis but I volunteer! I love audio books. 180 of them in the last year and Anita is my favorite character si far!

  9. Audio that works with immersion please. There are no audios for the books in the middle of the series. What’s that about?

  10. Hi, I absolutely love Laurel’s writings and especially the Anita Blake series. I need to listen via audiobooks instead of reading. I get the books from my local library’s online service, however, from book 10, Narcissus in Chains through book 14, Dance Macabre they are not in MP3 format and not available. I can’t find them at all in a format I have access to. I think during that time frame they were only recordd in WMA format which I cannot use. Have they been recorded in MP3 format or will they be in the near future?

  11. I love your books. I’m looking for the audio book versions to this and many more of the Anita Blake series.

  12. Its very hard to spend hours and hours and hundreds of dollars buying these audio books only to find it jumps from book 9-11 ive searched everywhere for unabridged books as i work 6 days a week with lots of driving and i can still enjoy my books….. Please please release them. Ive been stalled here fir a year and just keep checking if its out yet!!! Please please take my money from me im dieing to spend it on anita blake i need to know who she choose !!

    1. You can still buy book 9 in some stores. Books 10-16 are no longer available, although about half a year ago there have been some rumors here about a possible new release in progress. AFAIK book 10 was only available as an unabridged version.

  13. Where can I get Narcissus in Chains as an Audio book I had it on Tape but lost all my Audio books in a move
    I have Your entire Series in audio from Audible except for Narcissus in Chains I noticed a lot of them are no longer available what is that all about
    Do you have any idea where I can get an Unabridged copy
    Just on a side note I have both series in Paperback and most in Hardback I’m slowly filling in on the ones i’m missing

    1. AFAIK Narcissus in Chains has only been available as an Abridged version (I mistakenly mentioned Unabridged in a previous reply). Also, AFAIK it was never available at Audible.
      But consider yourself lucky. 🙂 Except from Blood Noir, which only recently became unavailable, books 11-15 became unavailable November 2014.

  14. What can we do, as fans, to help Laurell’s team get this book recorded unabridged??? A gofundme page? The book is almost 15 years old and we’re still waiting for an unabridged audio version.

  15. Please make an audiobook, please! 🙏🙏🙏🙏. To wash away the hospital scene in Obsidian Butterfly!!! Please. For this and the others that are missing on Audible.

  16. An audiobook (unabridged) for this and all the other missing ones would be AMAZING. I am in love with these books, have read them multiple times and am now going through the audiobooks, I am so sad I won’t be able to get those ones. 🙁

  17. I too keep on the look out for the unabridged copy of NIC. I bought the abridged copy years ago and it just cuts so much out. I have the paper back but would love to complete my unabridged collection. It’s a bummer that this is still the only book I don’t have in the series in unabridged form.

  18. Audible is missing 10-16 and I am super disappointed I can’t listen to these in audiobook format. I have these books in Hardcover, ebook, and the first 9 in audio – I wouldn’t have started listening to the series on audio book if I had known they cut off right in the middle of the series! Is there any news at all as to whether or not these will ever come about?

  19. Listening to the audiobooks at work is the only way I make it through the day. getting to relive Anita falling in love with Nathaniel, Micah, Richard, Jean Claude and everyone else is the best. We need the audiobooks for 10-16 ASAP please!!!

  20. i have some blind friends who would love to listen this series but they can’t without book 10-16, especially considering how much changes in these books. can a team member tell us if they are ever going to be on audio?

  21. Well dang… I real all the books and wanted to revisit them before the next book comes out. I spent hard earned money to get the audible books and LOVED it… right up until I hit book 10. Not available in audible format – in fact I find out 10-16 aren’t available on audible 🙁 I NEVER would’ve spent so much had I known I couldn’t get the full set. The other books need a warning ⚠️ about this… so not cool.
