I am Princess Meredith NicEssus. Legal name Meredith Gentry, because “Princess” looks so pretentious on a driver’s license. I was the first faerie princess born on American soil, but I wouldn’t be the only one for much longer …

Merry Gentry, ex–private detective, now full-time princess, knew she was descended from fertility goddesses, but when she learned she was about to have triplets, she began to understand what that might mean. Infertility has plagued the high ranks of faerie for centuries. Now nobles of both courts of faerie are coming to court Merry and her men, at their home in exile in the Western Lands of Los Angeles, because they will do anything to have babies of their own.

Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, is a more dangerous problem. He tried to seduce Merry and, failing that, raped her. He’s using the human courts to sue for visitation rights, claiming that one of the babies is his. And though Merry knows she was already pregnant when he took her, she can’t prove it.

To save herself and her babies from Taranis she will use the most dangerous powers in all of faerie: a god of death, a warrior known as the Darkness, the Killing Frost, and a king of nightmares. They are her lovers, and her dearest loves, and they will face down the might of the high courts of faerie—while trying to keep the war from spreading to innocent humans in Los Angeles, who are in danger of becoming collateral damage.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Merry Gentry returns! It’s been over four years since the last book in this series came out, and it is worth the wait…This entry finally brings some form of closure to the loose ends to each of Queen Andais’ and King Taranis’ plotlines, while staying true to those characters…A welcome return to the series!”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Charlotte Hill shows narrative authority as she directs complex conversations between Merry and her six lovers.”


  • “After a five-year hiatus, bestselling author Hamilton returns with a spellbinding series follow-up. Her ingeniously imaginative worldbuilding, erotically inventive plot, and dark lyrical narrative are still impressive and don’t lessen now that Merry is a mom.”
