I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne–if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.

My cousin, Prince Cel, is determined to see that I don’t. As long as we both live, we are in a race for the crown: Whichever one of us reproduces first gets the throne. So now the men of my royal guard– frightening warriors skilled with blade, spell, and gun–have become my lovers, auditioning with pleasure for the role of future king and father of my child. And they must still protect me from assassination attempts–for unlike most of the fey, I am part human, and very mortal. All this royal back-stabbing makes it very difficult for me to pursue my living as a private investigator in Los Angeles, especially since the media made sure the whole world knows the Faerie princess is alive and well in sunny California.

Now, in the City of Angels, people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways. What the human police don’t realize is that the killer is hunting the fey as well. Havoc lies on the horizon: the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while I enjoy the greatest pleasures of my life with my guardians, I must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that’s just my day job. . . .

From the darkling throng to the glittering court, this is a world of magic and delights, greed and grotesque ambitions. Laurell K. Hamilton has created a mythos of extreme power and pure beauty that is a delight to behold.

Faerie princess-turned-detective Meredith Gentry desperately tries to outwit a clever killer sent by her rival for the dark throne of an exotic kingdom, an investigation that plunges her into the seedy underworld of Los Angeles and the faux glamour of Hollywood, where an unexpected proposition from the Faerie king puts her life in further danger. By the author of A Kiss of Shadows.

Seductive book! The more you read the more you want to know what happens, will not be able to put this down I promise!

Merry Gentry is at it again. I love this series along with Ms. Hamilton's more famous "Anita Blake" series. The Merry Gentry series starts out more "in your face" sexual than "Anita" but the story line is great. Keep it up Ms. Hamilton!
