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 queen, I must first continue the royal bloodline and give birth to an heir of my own. If I fail, my aunt, Queen 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, sworn to protect and make love to me. But still the threat grows greater. For despite all my carnal efforts I remain childless, while the machinations of my sinister, sadistic Queen 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 even exile isn't enough to escape the grasp of those with dark designs.

Now King Taranis, powerful and vain-glorious ruler of 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 extradition to faerie and the hideous penalties that await them there. But I know that Taranis' 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 more terrifying.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 2/19/2014

    " I loved this book and I hated it so much at the same time. My heart aches for Merry right now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L & D | 2/15/2014

    " I couldn't put it down. Great little guilty pleasure with enough twists to keep me guessing. Although I did guess one twist before Meredith did! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 2/10/2014

    " I thought this was the best book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marlene Howard | 2/9/2014

    " It was a good read, they were things that happened in it that disappointed me, but that happens in everybook. It was good though, this series is not holding my interest like the Anita Blake series did. I think this one doesn't have the amount of action or the very different characters that she added with each book. But it was good everall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 StrangeBedfellows | 1/27/2014

    " Well, blow me away and call me Mary Poppins -- I actually enjoyed this. After the forgettable melodrama that was "Mistral's Kiss", I figured this series was done for. I hate leaving a series unfinished, though, so I picked this up for half-off. I was surprised to find things -- real plot -- happening. It wasn't just chapter after chapter of touchy-feely (pun intended) conversations and wasted time. There was story development, great strides of it, in fact. And it wasn't even a particularly long book. Best of all, in my opinion, the Frost problem has been "taken care of", if you will. I can't stand him, and I was quite happy with the way things turned there -- I won't say more and risk a spoiler. Anyway, I'm truly and surprisingly looking forward to reading the next book, "Swallowing Darkness". Go figure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/22/2014

    " A good installment as it gives some hearty backstory to one of my fav's Frost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Altadawn | 1/18/2014

    " One of my favorites in the series. "

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

    " can't help it, I like Frost. "

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

    " This book is a major turning point in the story which is fun to read. The other books were about how many more men Meredith can get with but this one, not so much and it was a nice change. LKH definitely knows how to keep the reader following this series even if they are annoyed with the books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 1/7/2014

    " Hamilton's best book in years - in either series. I really enjoyed this outing of Merry and her men. I was surprised that there was less sex and more plot. I hope Hamilton continues on this path. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Belinda | 12/16/2013

    " This was the best book so far. Merry is given everyone back their powers and some of their freedom back. She is starting to be queen to her people even if she is not she will protect them all and the magic even if it cost her some of herself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ubalstecha | 12/14/2013

    " A remarkable lack of sex in this entry in the Merry Gentry series. I didn't miss it, and I think the book was actually one of the strongest in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misha | 12/7/2013

    " Better than 5th book, thats true, but I will really appreciate better plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea Guess | 12/2/2013

    " Very good. Very suspenseful. Still too much sex but again excellent plot line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Genia | 2/5/2013

    " While I enjoy all of the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter novels, the Merry Gentry books are even better. The imagery is more vivid and the storylines are more exciting. "Frost" is my favorite character, making this my favorite book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbi Rightmyer | 10/23/2012

    " After the slight disappointment of Mistral's Kiss, Ms. Hamilton is back on her game with Lick of Frost. The story is slowly creeping toward the finish line, but I was not prepared for the climax of this book. It left me breathless and eagerly awaiting the next installment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Parker | 10/3/2012

    " Each time I read this book makes me like it more and more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 8/16/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 6/26/2012

    " started out slow but wow!! picked up & was action packed by the end..couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nilchance | 1/23/2012

    " I waffled a lot on the rating between "I liked it" and "it was okay". The book was easy to read brain-candy when I was in a bad state of mind, unable to focus much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi Bello | 11/17/2011

    " Classic Hamilton not as much sex in this one as in the past but the plot twists were wonderful. She paints such a vivid image with such rich detail I couldn't put this one down until I was done. "

    " I read the printed version of this book. It was, as I expected, one of her best. I don't want to give away any spoilers but this book focuses on Frost, one of Merry's guards and lovers. He is one of my favorite characters in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 5/27/2011

    " Not quite as steamy as the last few but Hamilton's got her form back. I couldn't put this one down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 3/28/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 3/24/2011
