It's an alright read, but in no way does it stand on it's own. If this is the start of a new plotline then I'm all for it, but if it's not then the series really should have ended with the last book. This book raises way too many issues to just leave as is, but it's been a few years since it was published. It hurts the series more than it helps and until there's a new book in the series I'd just give this one a pass.

Fun, but not neccessary. This is the book that comes after the main plot is finished and it feels like it. The characters eem to be just stumbling along looking for something to do. Hopefully Hamilton either stops or comes up with a new plotline for this one.

There is little to no character development in this book, but there is a lot happening plot wise and since there's supposed to be another release of the Merry Gentry series this coming year, I can't wait to see what happens with regards to the humans who are linked with her, the rest of her faerie entourage, if Maeve comes back, and when are those babies going to be born and what on earth will they be like?

Unfortunately a continuing decline in the series. It seems to be a filler book with little complexity. A frame for continuing sexual episodes that don't seem to be having the same impact or purpose as previously in the series.

This installement sees our heroine, Meridith (Merry), back in LA and carrying twins that have six different fathers. (Don't ask it's complicated.) And while she is now the undisputed heir of the Winter Court, Merry wants nothing to do withe politics and has fled to LA. (Again, don't ask it's complicated.)

Buy her exile is not exactly peaceful as the lesser fey are being murdered by a serial killer and Merry is called in by the local PD to help with the investigation. And this is where this book takes a sharp left from the rest of the series in that it has a plot.

Of her series, the Merry Gentry series has been the most clearly erotic. Hamilton has admitted as much. Yet in this installment, Hamilton follows the trend of her last Anita Blake book and includes a plot that is more than than a thinly veiled excuse for her characters to have sex. And the plot is not bad - not brilliant, but not bad.

Die hard fans, do not fear! Hamilton has not become a vestial virgin with this book. There are sex scenes enough to tantalize the most jaded reader (there's tenticle sex), but they aren't the sole reason for this book. And given what Hamilton has produced in the past, that's a high compliment.
