Meredith Gentry, erede al trono della corte Unseelie, ormai si allontana di rado dal palazzo della zia Andais, signora dell'Aria e delle Tenebre, perché il suo compito primario è concepire un erede. Se rimanesse incinta, potrebbe aspirare a diventare regina; se dovesse fallire, al trono salirebbe Cel, suo cugino, un individuo crudele e spietato, disposto a tutto pur di eliminarla. Quindi deve stare molto attenta. Soprattutto ora che lei e Mistral, il nuovo capitano delle guardie, sono diventati amanti, infrangendo l'esplicito ordine della regina Andais, e che la loro unione ha magicamente trasformato gli aridi Giardini Morti in una magnifica oasi di piante rigogliose e di fiori lussureggianti. Merry è convinta di avere finalmente la prova che la corte Unseelie sta per tornare al suo antico splendore: se così fosse, avrebbe finalmente inizio una nuova era di pace. Ma il destino è in agguato: per sbaglio, Merry entra nel territorio degli sluagh, i sanguinari guerrieri confinanti coi sidhe, viene accusata di tradimento e presa in ostaggio...

I’m not entirely sure why I can’t stop reading Laurell K. Hamilton’s books, but they’re like cake frosting… I always want more, but it’s so very, very bad for me. For example, I’m completely underwhelmed by this book, yet I just added the two she will be releasing this year to my wish list. The best Leggi tutto
I really love the whole story line of Princess Meradith NicEssus and her struggles to become queen of the Unseelie court but I'm getting really tired of chapter after chapter of sex scenes. It really inhibits plot development and Ms. Hamilton spends a lot of pages catching the reader who might not h Leggi tutto
Ok before I review the book I need to say something.... I am so tired of hearing all the negative reviews about this series and the Anita Blake series. The negative reviews say that there is too much sex, not enough plot, the book took place in only a day, not enough action.... Well, if you hate it s Leggi tutto
Amazingly enough, I enjoyed MISTRAL'S KISS. After the farce that has become the Anita Blake series, I was worried that the Meredith Gentry series would inevitably take the same downhill dive. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. This book is enjoyable, and does actually contain a plot. There are some n Leggi tutto
This one was my favorite so far, I will explain why soon. To be continued... Okay so this will have a spoiler in it. This one is my favorite book because of Doyal's confession. I love Doyal and Frost. More and more with every book. I love them so much that I can not think straight to be honest. I lov Leggi tutto
To me, this is the equivalent of Micah from the Anita Blake series. It's a novella, not a novel and does nothing to the series except make us try to like a new character. This book is just slightly over 200 pages and half of that is one sex scene with Mistral. Now don't get me wrong, I don't dislike Leggi tutto
These books are entertaining, plain and simple. You have a barage of colourful men with fascinating eyes, rather not so bad sex scenes and Merry who is quite cool. But there are some flaws. These books keep getting smaller and smaller! There's absolutely no reason why Mistral's Kiss and Lick of Fros Leggi tutto
3.5 Well, this was a short one. I don't understand why didn't the author make one book from the last three. I mean, it's the exact same thing! I don't like the idea that she split them just to make more money... Although you shouldn't judge a book my its author. The book was good, I really enjoyed it, Leggi tutto
Don't think of this as a book that will push a particular plot forward -think of this as more of a 3 scene sex manual and you can't go wrong. And not a particularly good sex manual - way tooo much talking and negotiating for my taste, although very true to this reality from what I understand. I will Leggi tutto
I'm a big fan of Laurell K Hamilton and have read every Merry Gentry book back to back. LKH has managed to build up a detailed and rich world with likeable and intense characters that you actually care for, which I find is essential for any long running series. Having said that I was a little disapp Leggi tutto
