It's a good story - I like the take on the two different kinds of fey, makes it more interesting. The characters are great (Andais is very entertaining) and I like the court politics that go hand in hand with the intense violence. Also, like the wealth of different character appearances (some are just beautiful, some are horrifying, some are both).
she did a great job. She does a good job with the different accents.

This is the first book and it's good, but eventually, (if you listen to them all) the author uses some of the lines way to often - they are good lines to begin with, but by the 4th book using that same line - gets annoying.
! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
This was my first book of Laurell K Hamilton and I loved every second of it and the rest of this series from the first to the eighth. I WILL BE VERY GLAD WHEN THE NINTH BOOK COME OUT
If you like fantasy and OMG moments then you will love this book it is a non stop of OMG what just happened or OMG no way.
I love all the characters in this book I guess one of my favorite parts is when she goes back to faire and you meet the queen for the first time. Man that is one evil bitch.
I wish they had someone else to read the book this narrator has the voice of my grandmother, and a lot of the voices sound the same. I wish that people could listen to the narrator first and see if people like the way the narrator read. This Laural Merlington should find a different job.
If this book was made in to a movie I would go see it. If they keep the storyline cause it is great. I would love to see how Hamilton see the characters.
I've got to wonder why they choose these mediocre narrators for the Laurell K Hamilton books. The one for the Anita Blake series is so bad I returned them and I love that series. This narrator, Laural Merlington is okay really it's a 2.5 star in my book. The men sound kinda funny and 1st person narration is kinda flat. The queen's voice is really good though. It's a good story, a better series, and for 3.99 with whisperlink worth the extra for something to keep me entertained in traffic. Read it on kindle or paper though if you can.
Okay so this was a little bit of a different twist on the who Fae story lines, but what this book lacked in story it more than made up for with the sex. Good grief... my mouth dropped open several times. I will purchase the next book so I can get a little more of that!!!
I'm an audio book junky! And an avid reader! I love books mostly paranormal fantasy romance, and books that are hot and steamy and fun
I will listen to this over and over again as I love these books I have read them more than once and will now listen to them over and over!
It caught my interest at first, and I think I tried to read it years ago. After, a few chapters (maybe half way through) i just stopped caring about the book and the characters.
I'm not sure why I didn't connect with this book. I loved the author's other series.
Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
This book brings all the child hood fairy tales to light in such a way you will find your self remembering fairy tales and wanting to brush up on your Greek mythology. Nicely done in a modern setting.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Too detail oriented...I don't care what color his tie was...The action was at the end to make you continue on with the series....not if it's another 15 hours of blahhhhh!
No there are many more out there and 10 times better.....
I don't think I have heard her before....she did a good job.
Thank-ful that I got through it.....
Not interested in continuing, glad I got it at a 2 for 1 sale...
I really don't know where to start, but since I have very few criticisms I will start there. The narrator is VERY good! Her voice is breathy and thoughtful, nuanced. She really brings Merry to life. She does not do men very well, but one learns to live with it. It does start a little slow, but the beginning is still very well done. It eases the reader into the mythology and culture of the Fae.
The book is drenched in sex, but there is not that much actual intercourse. Rather there is ubiquitous sexual interaction. It fits the story of a race of people who are very sexual and a world where sex, flesh and blood are a kind of currency.
The heroine is soft and tough, smart and funny and very appealing. It is easy to view this wild and dangerous world through her eyes. I felt drawn into the story. Amazing story telling.
I have read alot of romance, I have read an infinite amount of fantasy and sci-fi. This book is a magnificent (and I don't use that word lightly or often) blending of the 3 with a bit of mystery thrown in. Very complex weaving of plot lines. I purchased the next 2 straight away. Do not be dissuaded by the nay-sayers. This story is well worth the credit.
