A Kiss of Shadowsby Laurell K. Hamilton
Synopses & Reviews
"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.
"As wild as the novel?s premise is, memorable characters and wicked wit make it all delicious, ribald fun." Publishers Weekly
"An intriguing start to a new series, if even more of a guilty pleasure than Hamilton's previous series." Carolyn Cushman, Locus

"Sexy....Merry's adventures are engaging and keep the reader turning the pages." St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A story that mixes mystery, romance, and political intrigue." The Denver Post
