"All it would take was my true name being mentioned after dark, and it would float back to my aunt. She was the Queen of Air and Darkness, and that meant that anything said in the dark was hers to hear, eventually. The fact that spotting the missing Elven American Princess had become more popular than spotting Elvis helped. Her magic was always chasing blind leads. Princess Meredith skiing in Utah. Princess Meredith dancing in Paris. Princess Meredith gambling in Vegas. After three years I was still a front-page story for the tabloids, though the latest headlines had been speculating that I was as dead as the King of Rock and Roll . . ." In fact, Meredith has been posing as a human in Los Angeles, living as a private investigator specializing in supernatural crime. But now Doyle, the Queen's chief bodyguard and assassin, has been dispatched to fetch her back - whether she likes it or not. And suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt's plans . . . plans that affect the future of the entire UnSeelie Court. The requirements of the job: to enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful - and immortal - men in the world. The reward: the crown - and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty: death. Download and start listening now!

    " Not as enjoyable for me as the Anita Blake series; not about vampires - fairies instead (the enchanted kind, not the homosexual ones). Plenty of sex and violence (and sexual violence) though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/11/2014

    " I really like this book. This is just as good as the Anita Blake stories!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Jensen | 2/10/2014

    " Very strange but I liked it. She seems though to be making sex the big theme in her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda Fisher | 1/31/2014

    " I loved the whole series and am hoping Laurell Hamilton will publish a new book in this year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 1/27/2014

    " if you like anita blake, you will enjoy merry gentry: fae private eye...goddess of fertility? on a deadline to reproduce. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julieanne | 1/18/2014

    " This series is a lot like the other series she writes the sex is just about the same, the men change and they are faeries so i guess in a way its different but it reminds me of Blake. Its readable if you like her other stuff if you dont you will not like these i have read all the way up to 7... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 1/10/2014

    " The first book in the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton. This book is an awesome start to a different series by a very good author. Very different from the beginning of her Anita Blake series. This series involves the two courts of the fey. Highly recommend reading these they wont disapoint! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Diggins | 1/5/2014

    " this is a series...didn't realize what type of book it was until started listening...not bad...but I know once I read this book...going to have to read the series.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon (Savhage Temptrest) | 11/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/2/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 8/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 8/10/2011

    " Entertaining--would have been 4 stars if she didn't rush the ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jacqueline Coleman | 7/22/2011

    " This book is not for me. I was fine until the middle when it just went down hill from there. I don't think I will be reading this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Drew | 6/18/2011

    " I think the Gentry novels are a little oversexed and underplotted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 5/23/2011

    " Sexy faery books. #1 in a series. I just kept buying book after book on my kindle. Good bedtime reading. "

    " Another really cool, strong female protagonist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teddy | 5/6/2011

    " Picked this up because I was promised that where Anita Blake starts well and devolves into bad porn, this series starts as bad porn and gets better.

    It seems okay for what it is? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kairon13 | 5/1/2011

    " Entertaining fantasy plotline with some not-altogether-vanilla erotica (tentacle sex, anyone?) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 4/29/2011

    " this took too long to realy get into, the first half spent most the time explaining stuff and not much going on "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Genesis | 4/26/2011

    " I was hoping for some early Anita Blake awesomeness in this series, but this book jumped straight into the sex. It was still interesting and there is a decent storyline but I was disappointed that there wasn't more action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 4/25/2011

    " A 5 star read! My imagination was overloaded. Everything was so creative. The words, world building, character, everything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 4/24/2011

    " As a huge Anita Blake fan, I didn't really know alot about Merry. But after reading book 1 in the series, I can say that I will definitely be reading the rest! There's the pre-requisite holsters, weapons and men. Merry is very different to Anita though and I look forward to getting to know her. "
