Publisher Comments:

I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne — if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.

After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while she enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life attempting to conceive a baby with the warriors of her royal guard, she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that?s just her day job....

Review:

"Private dick/Faerie princess Meredith Gentry returns in this faux-noir sequel to A Kiss of Shadows....Meredith ends as the Princess of Flesh and Blood, not yet with child, still babbling that overripe moonspeak ('I smelled roses, and blood appeared on my wrist as if by the prick of thorns')." Kirkus Reviews

In her previous book, faerie princess Merry Gentry was given a challenge by her aunt, the Queen: If she doesn't produce a child before wicked cousin Cel does, then Cel gets the throne, however, things are getting messy as a mysterious force has left hundreds in California dead, and Merry has to find out why and who. Merry learns that a bizarre, primordial power has been unleashed to murder and what's more, Merry's very presence is beginning to awaken the godlike powers that the Sidhe thought they had lost. As always, Laurell K. Hamilton writes dark fantasy like no other, her descriptions and narratives really bring one's imagination to life. The best part about this book and this series thus far has to be the portrayal of the two courts of the Sidhe; I have never come across such a fascinating and distinctive interpretation of the two courts as in this series. Unseelie Sidhe as the superior court accommodating all children, no matter their parentage and the contrast between the artifice of the Seelie court with their brutality and torture. I'm hooked and looking forward to reading the next novel in the series, one of the best pieces of fiction on fairies I've ever read.
