Sono Meredith Gentry, principessa della corte Unseelie. Da quando mi sono trasferita nel palzzo di mia zia Andais, non sono più andata a Los Angeles, dove un tempo lavoravo come detective privata. Ma adesso sono costretta a tornare in città per difendere le mie guardie del corpo, dato che tre di loro sono in grave pericolo. Lady Caitrin, nobile della corte Seelie, li ha infatti accusati di stupro. Se fossero giudicati colpevoli, sarebbero condannati alla tortura eterna. Non posso permetterlo, soprattutto perché sono innocenti. Sono certa che questo processo sia solo una manovra di mio zio Taranis, sovrano della Luce e delle Illusioni, per arrivare a me. Lui mi ha sempre odiato e, quando ero piccola, ha persino cercato di uccidermi. Adesso, però, temo che abbia in mente ben di peggio: non c'è niente che Taranis desideri di più di un figlio e, se lo avesse da me, quel bambino sarebbe legittimo erede sia della corte Seelie sia di quella Unseelie. Per questo è disposto a tutto pur di assicurarsi che io sia soltanto sua...

I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for Meredith to get pregnant already and for there to be some forward movement of plot in these books. Also, I was getting tired of the strung together scenes of sex...new magic...more sex...some more new magic. This book really toned down on the sex, thank Leggi tutto
I can't decide what I think about the latest installment in the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton. Yes, I like the series. Yes, I like Merry and Darkness and Rhys and Frost and Galen, etc. The last couple of books have bothered me on some levels, mainly that they take place over the span Leggi tutto
Ok, so we actually get a lot of progression here. Merry and her gang have left the court behind and are back in LA, but of course court politics have not left her. Now, Taranis, the King of the Seelie court has accused three of Merry's men of raping a lady of his court. Blindsided by this accusation, Leggi tutto
I thought, "What the hell." Hamilton has sold enough books to fill a desiccated Lake Eerie, so I just had to pick one up, almost in spite of my own literary snobbishness. I've been wrong before. The fourth Harry Potter movie was out before I decided to pick up Philosopher's Stone and I was pleasantl Leggi tutto
For me this series gets better with each book. I am always expecting the new love twist, the new magic, some new development. But this one, broke my heart.... I tend to get sucked into the books that I read that I truly love and enjoy.. I feel the emotions and develop my relationships with the charac Leggi tutto
Holy crap. Now that's what I'm talking about. I've been giving LKH's Merry Gentry books progressively lower ratings because...well, my estimation of them has fallen greatly. What started as a magnificent series with lots of potential and a keen awareness of Celtic mythology had fallen into 200-some
Yay, finally! I can give a book in this series 4 stars! Yup, this one was better than the others. I absolutely adored it!
I love this book, I love this series. This is the 6th book in the Meredith Gentry series. This was yet another book that I just couldn't put down. I can't get enough of Merry Gentry's world. Love it. Better than the Anita Blake series. Love the play on Celtic lore, the love story, the push for non c Leggi tutto
This is one of the best books in the Merry Gentry series! I loved it! The plot thickens with Merry awakening all sorts of new powers in both the seelie and unseelie courts... There is of course HOT sex, but also a great plot as well!!! Im am really impressed by this one and cant wait for the Swallowi Leggi tutto
