    "I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne of fairie. My day job, once upon a time, was as a private detective in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, princess has now become a full-time occupation. My aunt, Queen Andais, will have it no other way. And so I am virtually a prisoner in fairie - trapped here with some of the realm's most beautiful men to serve as my bodyguards...and my lovers."

    Overall

    Another great story. I really love the way these characters are developing slowly as the series progresses. Everyone, especially Frost and Gaylan are getting much better at their initial weaknesses. The sex is much too drawn out and tends to stall the story from moving forward. That's ok though. I can get past the disk-long orgies because the story line is otherwise great. The characters are really good too. I would love it if the narrator would stick with pronouncing the characters names in a consistent way. Doyle was "Doyle" in books one and two, "Dole" in books three, back to "Doyle" in book four, and now back to Dole. I realize the pronunciation guide says that his name is pronounced "Dole", but stick with the same darned name! It's distracting, and quite frankly disrespectful to the author. Not to mention poor Darkness! I wish he'd pop out of the story with Mortal Dread and give the narrator a little slice... :)

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No way! This is part of an ACTION series. This book has "0" action. It sets up and sets up, then ENDS. Not a single bullet fired, not a single person killed.


    Would you ever listen to anything by W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth again?

    Nope. This book disgraced the series. I'll miss Charlie, but this was horrible.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s voice?

    New York Hipster.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Great plot. Too bad it didn't complete.


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste...

    "I am Meredith, princess of faerie, wielder of the hands of Flesh and Blood, and at long last, I am with child twins, fathered by my royal guard. Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me. And now he has branded my guards as a threat to my unborn children."

    Kristy says: "Story is great, narration was not so great"
    "GREAT BOOK! Disappointing Narrator"
    Overall

    I loved this book. In fact, I'm going to have to buy it and "read" it. The narrator is not terrible. In fact, she is quite good. With that said, I have to say that after listening to the other books, it's distracting to have this type of narration. There's a lot of dialogue in this book. It's hard to figure out the difference between Doyle, Reece, Gaylan, or even Andeais... They all sound the same. I can't wait for the next book, though.
