Don't let anyone bother you when reading this book.
Unpredictable Merry Gentry is off an running, trying to understand her Aunt and the needs of her people. I love all 5 books, currently issued from this series.
You have to have an open mind for all of the sex, us humans are so conservative!
The Merideth Brooks novels give sci-fi lovers a new way to enjoy the genre by convesinly placing demon fey & humanity side by side in present day contents. Very sexy, very graphic, but a great read if u dare!
I was very hesitant to even start this series. I was pleasently surprised. I've been reading Laurell Hamilton's Anita Blake series and for me once I begin a series I read it until I am up to the most recent. I can't tell you how many times I put down a book and said, "I am not reading this anymore!" I got the first two of Meredith Gentry and thought if these books don't have more substance to them than overly described redundunt sex scene after redundunt sex scene then I'm not reading them. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a little hottness in my reading but, I am so not into the sex is power message that is driven totally into the ground in Anita. I don't mean to compare and not review but, I am grouchy about the time I've devoted to Anita to be more disappointed after each book. Now Merideth she's a girl who wants it all. Who doesn't love a faery princess, right? She is living amoung humans, working for a supernatural PI firm, refusing to be kept financially by the queen. Her work with the PI firm lands her in the middle of a faery outcast with a big secret to keep and Meredith's undiscovered powers save them from certain distruction. She's also trying to beat her cousin Cel to the throne by getting pregnant first, by one of her royal gaurd. Who are the hottest among the Queen's ravens. she's starting to get smart realizing that whoever gets her pregnant will be her husband and whoever that is will also be King... then she will have to leave the rest behind and she is begining to have deep feelings for some. Right now it's not one crazy sex scene after another and there is a plot and political manuevering. It's one of those books that make me miss the characters when I'm not reading about them, like friends. Very surprised can't wait to read more I hope they continue on that track.
The second in the series. After eluding assasssination attempts by Prince Cel, Meredith has a whole new list of problems. People are dying, andd Faerie is at grave risk. So while Meredith is enjoying trying to conceive a baby with the royal court, she has to fend off an acient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality.
Second in the series. I'm getting more interested in the characters, although I found the Anita Blake books better.
