Meredith Gentry è sopravvissuta alle torture di re Taranis, sovrano della Luce e delle Illusioni, solo grazie all'eroico intervento e al sacrifìcio di Doyle, una delle sue guardie del corpo. Ora, però, tocca a lei salvargli la vita: Doyle infatti è rimasto gravemente ferito ed è stato ricoverato d'urgenza in un ospedale di Los Angeles. E purtroppo sembra peggiorare di giorno in giorno, scivolando inesorabilmente verso la morte. Disperata, Meredith capisce che l'unica speranza è riportarlo al più presto a Faerie, ma lasciare il mondo degli umani è un'impresa irta di pericoli: la principessa infatti non può rifugiarsi né presso la Corte Seelie, dove Taranis sta preparando una vendetta per l'affronto subito, né alla Corte Unseelie, dove suo cugino Cel aspetta solo l'occasione giusta per eliminarla e diventare così l'u-nico erede al trono. Non le rimane altra scelta che rivolgersi a re Sholto e trasferire Doyle nel tumulo sacro degli Slaugh, un popolo bellicoso e da sempre ostile ai fey: un popolo che, per impedire una simile profanazione, non esiterebbe a scatenare una guerra...

So here's the thing. I tend to cut the Merry Gentry books a little more slack than I do the Anita Blake books, possibly because the Merry books never pretended to be anything other than what they are. So while the power-ups and addition of new men would bother me in Anita-verse, I tend to roll with
Wow. Just, wow. This was probably one of, if not the best book in the Merry Gentry series. I dont want to give any spoilers away, so Im gonna make this review brief. There is a TON of action in this book. Lots of magic, and unbelievable circumstances... and somehow, Merry doesnt seem quite so helple Leggi tutto
Loved this book, loved this series. What a fascinating world LKH has created. I was disappointed with the lack of sex in this book though. I was glad she finally had sex with the yummy goblin twins Holly and Ash but that was it for sex in this book. Poor Doyle never did get his blow job. Why is it n Leggi tutto
The last book ended on such a sad tone, this one was a rush through and through. The wild hunt, Faerie crowning Meredith (TWICE!), Ash and Holly getting their powers, all these events, some of them joyous, some incredibly sad. I'd have to say, this one is probably one of my favourite books in the se Leggi tutto
Ponder if you will for a moment these things... 1) The vast majority of Laurell K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series has been more sex than plot (a recent book had a 90+ page sex scene); 2) One of the main characters in the series is nicknamed Darkness; and 3) The latest, seventh, book in the series Leggi tutto

3.5 Stars Ok I think this may be the best book out of the series so far. Cause shit finally went down! Also, side note, I apparently read these books when they came out but I had no memory of this at all. Now that she's pregnant, Merry is in line to inherit the throne. That was her Aunt's ruling afte Leggi tutto
It is extremely difficult to write a review for a book without incorporating spoilers for those who have not read the entire series. However, I am determined to do my best because Meredith Gentry novels deserve to find a home on many new readers' bookshelves. Of course, I recommend starting with the Leggi tutto
Looking for a kickass heroine? "Swallowing Darkness" by Laurell K. Hamilton gives us a pregnant heroine with awesome powers and raging hormones! How can I not love it? Seriously, in this 7th book of the 'Meredith Gentry' series Meredith is finally pregnant...with twins no less. But instead of becomin Leggi tutto
