Sono Meredith Gentry, principessa di Faerie. Da quando ho lasciato il mondo degli umani, sono stata costantemente in pericolo di vita: prima a causa di mio cugino Cel, che voleva eliminarmi per diventare l'unico erede della Corte Unseelie; poi per via di mio zio Taranis, sovrano della Luce e delle Illusioni, che ha cercato di uccidere me e le mie guardie del corpo. Ecco perché, ora che sono incinta, ho deciso di rinunciare al trono e di tornare a Los Angeles, dove sarò al sicuro. Questo però non significa che io abbia voltato le spalle al mio popolo. E, infatti, quando la Grey Detective Agency mi ha chiesto di occuparmi di un caso, riprendendo il mio incarico d'investigatrice del soprannaturale, ho accettato subito. Soprattutto perché le vittime sono dodici demi-fey, trovati con la gola squarciata su una collina fuori città. Alcuni miei colleghi credono sia opera di finti-elfi - uomini che si sono sottoposti a interventi di chirurgia estetica per somigliare a elfi -, tuttavia io so che non è così: le ferite sono state inferte con un pugnale magico, un pugnale che può essere usato solo da un killer di Faerie. E adesso ho paura che quell'assassino sia venuto per me.

I'm not really sure why I read this series anymore. The actual mystery of the novel is shoved aside for the better part of the book to make way for arguing, sex, and pissing contests. And if it's not that, then the rest of the book is made up of hair and eye color descriptions for all the various ch Leggi tutto
Merry and her Muppet multi-color haired men are back, but definitely not for the better. This book didn't do much for me. I have enjoyed the series, but one of the biggest problems has been when the plot drags. This particular book dragged for me. The Queen of the Unseelie Court did not make an appe Leggi tutto
I'm not sure why I keep doing this to myself. I spend money on LKH book and then feel like a shmuck afterwards. Allow me to explain. This is book 8 of a series. 8 books and all that has happened with the Merry, a half breed fairy princess living in the U.S. is: 1- Knocked by multiple men (if you are s Leggi tutto
Ahh... Princess Meredith's Magical Vagina tour rolls on... Okay we get it - sex is magic - and your girl the princess has such a magical hoo-haw as to invoke all the lost treasures of Faerun. Good for her. This will be the last Meredith Gentry book I read. I wasnt offended by the rampant sex, I expect t Leggi tutto
This book is brought to you by the words, "Copy" and "Paste." Seriously, Hamilton has always been a lazy writer in desperate need of a thesaurus but this book really takes the prize. The EXACT SAME SENTENCES were featured over and over in every chapter. This book reverted to the "all boring sex scene Leggi tutto
This is the 8th book in Laurell K Hamilton’s ‘Merry Gentry’ series. Ever since ‘Narcissus in Chains’ (Anita Blake #10) I have preferred Hamilton’s ‘Merry’ books to ‘Anita’. At least in the ‘Merry’ books all the erotica, orgies, BDSM etc is legitimized by Merry and her men being Sidhe (fey) who are a Leggi tutto
I really like this series! It seems that I like LKH's writing style. As expected, hoer books are not for everyone, you either really like them or you really don't (but if you stuck to this series 'til here, you probably d0). So the story continues. This book is more of a "filler" for the series, nothi Leggi tutto
I have no idea why my past self initially rated this book 4 stars. I guess a lot has changed in 10 years because this was in NO WAY a 4 star book. Especially when the previous book had a pretty good ending for the series as a whole. I think reading them all back to back might be the reason for my ch Leggi tutto
The plot was somewhat tighter (whodunit wise only) and It was fun to see some of the characters from book 1 again. There were some vaguely touched upon interesting developments concerning: the human soldiers she saved last book, the gangs home away from home, and in Merry's demeanor. But this still
Divine Misdeameanours is the 8th installment in the Meredith Gentry series by the amazing Laurell K Hamilton. And what a book it was! I was begging for this book to come out, and I had no complaints. The only thing close to a complaint I had was the price of the Hardcover, but with my store discount Leggi tutto
