Ok so we actually get
a lot of progression hereMerry and her gang have left the court behind and are lot of progression hereMerry and her gang have left the court behind and are 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 Merry Has No Choice But To Confront "this accusation Merry has no choice but to confront uncle about his lies But of course this doesn t go as planned and has disastrous conseuences I remember being so xcited to read this book because Frost was one of my favorite characters And dang he goes through some shit in this I m honestly not sure how he s going to come back from it ither But while the plot moved forward the book was a little sl Holy crap Now that s what I m talking about I ve been giving LKH s Merry Gentry books progressively lower ratings becausewell my stimation 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 pages of Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars endless sex romps with multicolored men Until nowThis book definitely turns all of that on its head and actually furthers the plotsomething that LKH has avoided for at least several books now The climax at thend of this book no spoilers but it takes place in Meav s dining room had my jaw on the floor In addition to the wonderful plot advancements and spot on mythological references to Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life explain a total plot shocker the actual writing is great in this book with several passages that I read multiple times just for their flow and poetry Hats off LKH If this is any indication of where the series is going from here on out I m glad I stayed on the rocky ride This is one of the best books in the Merry Gentry series I loved itThe 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 Swallowing Darkness WOW 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 Galentc The last couple of books have bothered me on some levels mainly that they take place over the span of only about one day and are over packed with intrigue politics alliances sex recreational procreational andor political not bad just sort of a LOT of it for reasons I m not always clear about carnage miracles magic salvation well you get the point It s often hard to track who is allied with whom and whether the seemingly miraculous happening is a good thing or a bad thing This title starts by setting up what you assume will be the main conflict in the book yet it disappears fairly arly on Amazingly NO sex till well after page 100 In some ways this book almost felt like a novella compared to most of Hamilton s books The story moved changed and resolved. I am Meredith Gentry princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of faerie onetime private investigator in the mortal world To be crowned ueen I must first continue the royal bloodline and give birth to an heir of my own If I fail my aunt ueen Andais will be free to do what she most desires install her twisted son Cel as monarch and kill me My royal guards surround me and my best loved–my Darkness and my Killing Frost–are always beside me. .
Anis is the mirror for leventy billion pages Then she talks to Andais for leventy billion pages The she talks to the goblins And then we hear about some new creatures her sex has brought to lifeIn the course of these conversations we get of B I thought What the hell Hamilton has sold nough 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 pleasantly surprised at the journey the good Ms Rowling took me on I will tell you that I tried Twenty pages worth of trying The book read paper better used for wiping the asses of dysentery sufferers was a lesson in mediocrity on par with the profound literary masterpiece known as The Hunger Games The first page was tough and I wanted to stop but I thought No Atreyu wouldn t uit now So I slugged on and ach page was worse than the previous one Lame xposition of situations and in an nvironment thinner than the wasted paper it was printed onHere is Ms Hamilton s attempt at simile But his hair was uniuely his own silver like metal beaten into hair I reread this three times thinking I was missing some deeper meaning refusing to believe that this line slipped passed the yes of the authors many drafts and an agent and a line Black Heart, Red Ruby editor and a storyditor and a copy ditor and a final read by all of the above Here are a few the white of his shirt was less white than his own skinThere was no magic to it just the force of their physicality The force of their physicality The men across the table gave the guards

Almost Certain Could Take Physically Without Breaking A Sweat Readcertain could take physically without breaking a sweat Read like you would a Shelley poem or Shakespeare So talentless so very sadListen writing a book is hard I get it No one deserves to have their art dismantled and mocked But there is no attempt by the author or by the publisher at greatness here A book is so precious so goddamn important and this thing is printedwhy because of a story because she s sold books before Because because becaaaaaause because of the wonderful things she does Bad books have always been written They shall always be written but I guess I m concerned with the impetus that compels so many people to pull 25 bucks out of their pocket and slam it on the counter gleefully for this trash LOOK I say to the average reader There sits Picture of Dorian Gray Bleak House Pillars of the Earth Drood The Idiot Dune anything by Gene Wolfe pick up that instead PLEASE It s ven cheaperAs a lover of books it hurts my heart and my brain Just another rant Not like anybody reads these anyway Yay finally I can give a book in this series 4 starsYup this one was better than the others I absolutely adored it These books would be perfect if someone killed Taranis and Ce. F faerie’s Seelie Court has leveled accusations against my noble guards of a heinous crime–and has gone so far as to ask the mortal authorities to prosecute If he succeeds my men face xtradition to faerie and the hideous penalties that await them there But I know that Taranis’s charges are baseless and I sense that his true target is me He tried to kill me when I was a child Now I fear his intentions are far terrifying From the Hardcover dition. So uickly and there weren t a lot of character developments I also wasn t satisfied by the major development at the Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey end don t want to give it away but it seemed a bit of a cop out A resolution that while interesting seems to shoot down something we were supposed to be waiting impatiently for and which was supposed to be of major political concern Seemed like Hamilton said Well can t decide what to do about that so I guess I d say Good but not thoroughly satisfying I hope the next book in the series is better For me this series gets better withach book I am always xpecting the new love twist the new magic some new development But this one broke my heartI tend to get sucked into the books that I read that I truly love and njoy I feel the ЯED emotions and develop my relationships with the charactersThrough out this series I have chosen my favoritesDoyle Rhys Frost Galen and Kitto I care a lot for the others but these five are my favoritesSo much happens in this book so many realizations news that we have been waiting for A lot of heartbreak tooFrost he is so complicated so stubborn and so defensive so when you get a glimpse of his truemotions it takes you backthere is a part of this book that will stand out to me above all others it moved me to tearsthe thought of someone saying this just breaks meI will love you always When this red hair is white I will still love you When the smooth softness of youth is replaced by the delicate softness of age I will still want to touch your skin When your face is full of the lines of very smile you have ver smiled of very surprise I have flash through your

Sworn to protect and make love to me But still the threat grows greater For despite all my carnalfforts I remain childless while the machinations of my sinister sadistic ueen and her confederates remain tireless So my bodyguards and I have slipped back into Los Angeles hoping to outrun the gathering shadows of court intrigue But A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author evenxile isn’t What If enough toscape the grasp of those with dark designsNow King Taranis powerful and vainglorious ruler
