Seduced By Moonlight is the third novel in Laurell K.Hamilton's Princess Meredith series. This novel occurs over the span of two days and in this short period of time Merry has to cement her deal for alliance with the Goblins and when ordered to by the Queen return to court with her entourage. Upon arriving they find that something is drastically wrong. Not only is there an assassination attempt on Merry?s life, but also the Queen is out of control, someone has bespelled her and she is jeopardy of destroying her entire court, Merry is able to prevent the coup attempt whilst determining who is behind it. Meantime something is happening when Merry mates with her guards, they are coming back into their long lost powers and returning to the gods that they once were. Danu, the Goddess appears to Merry in a dream, and she is given a sacred chalice, other ancient and powerful Unseelie relics are also acquired, including a heavy ring given to her by Queen Andais. These sacred objects have their magic restored, as of old, through Merry and no one is sure how far her powers will take her. The ending was a true page-turner; I couldn't put it down I thoroughly recommend these books.
