I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home - because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne faerie has to offer.

The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed and violence for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread the most.

Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now from his prison cell. But not all the assassination attempts are his. Some Unseelie nobles have waited centuries for my aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, to become weak enough that she might be toppled from her throne. Enemies unforeseen move against us - enemies who would murder the least among us.

The threat will drive us to allow human police into faerie for the first time in our history. I need my allies now more than ever, especially since fate will lead me into the arm of Mistral, Master of Storms, the queen's new captain of her guard. Our passion will reawaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the sidhe. Pain and pleasure await me - and danger, as well, for some at that court seek only death.

I will find new joys with the butterfly-winged demi-fey. My guards and I will show all of faerie that violence and sex are as popular among the sidhe as they are among the lesser fey of our court. The Darkness will weep, and Frost will comfort him. The gentlest of my guards will find new strength and break my heart. Passions undreamed of await us - and my enemies gather, for the future of both courts of faerie begins to unravel.

    " So far so goood "

    " so far it is a good book finshed a real good book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 2/8/2014

    " I absolutely love this series, and can't wait to get back from vacation so I can start reading the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 2/5/2014

    " Hmm...hard to say. The court politics are enough to make you dizzy, but they are interesting. The wealth of characters, both in number and depth, is staggering, but good I think. I like that it takes up right when the other left off, but we're pushing the boundaries of "too much for a mere mortal." And I'm sad that they've completely left the detective stories (weak though they were), but I think they will return. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 cco | 1/29/2014

    " The story behind this and the earlier books in the series is basically the same with some minor variations on location and conflict. I'm truly interested in Merry, who ends up getting her pregnant, and what happens with the succession of the throne. But there is just way too much sex that gets in the way with the story. A page or two of story will be sandwiched between chapters of gratuitous erotica. I may continue pick up the next book in the series, but only if there is nothing else I'd like to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dee | 1/24/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/20/2014

    " The underlying story is good, but almost completely drowned out by the soft porn. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/7/2014

    " Great but so over the repetitive descriptions really sick of hearing about her freaking tinsel hair/eyes "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Keraleigh | 12/16/2013

    " Serious? It's like pure gold on the page. This is such an amazing series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristov | 11/21/2013

    " In some ways this is not as good as the last book yet in other ways it's better. Nothing about this book was what I expected after the last and the book seems to be a turning point in the series with lots of setups and surprises that impact the direction of the overall plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbi Rightmyer | 11/13/2013

    " This 4th edition of the Merry Gentry series will not disappoint loyal fans. I eagerly await all installments of this series. The magic was great, the turmoil increased and the action is neverending. Great! "

    " Adequate addition to the series. Introduces us to more of the guards and more magic. More of an interim book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Cummings | 9/8/2013

    " It was a good book but like Guilty Pleasures this will be only one of its series that I'll read. "

    " I think this has been my favorite of the series, so far. Merry is finally coming into to her true power. Loved Doyles moment of vulnerbility in this book, a side of Darkness you don't usually see. I have to say that Rhys and Doyle are my favorites of Merry's men. "

    " Poor Merry is just getting pulled into 50 different directions.There are too many people to please and no time to do it! There is a lot of sex, but it's not too raunchy. It doesn't really bother me. Then again I have read a few books with some graphic sex...so maybe my threshold is different..... "
