Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"My name is Meredith Gentry, but of course it?s not my real name. I dare not even whisper my true name after dark for fear that one hushed word will travel over the night winds to the soft ear of my aunt, the Queen of the Air and Darkness. She wants me dead. I don?t even know why."

Meredith Gentry, Princess of the high court of Faerie, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, living as a P.I. specializing in supernatural crime. But now the Queen?s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her back — whether she likes it or not. Suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt?s plans. The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world. The reward: the crown — and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty for failure: death.

Ms Hamilton introduces you to a world dreams are made of. Not unlike Ann Rice, she takes you into the world of her imagination and makes it, and those who people it, real...flesh and blood, if you will.
