    My father always said fear was a weakness. Well, that's easy to say when you don't have to worry about vampire slayers or holy water. I hate fear, but undead life goes on. In the two months since I was attacked in the hospital morgue and turned into a vampire, I've killed my evil sire, Cyrus, fallen in love with my new sire, Nathan, and have even gotten used to drinking blood.

    "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."

    "Again-good story"
    Overall

    I really like the plot to Hamilton's book however as I said in last review, the sexual descrpitions are getting to be boring. The first 2 hours of this book was between Merry (main character) and Mistral--regardless, I will continue to listen as the author does keep the listeners attention.

    "I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. Now there are those among us who whisper I am more. And who can blame them? I've awakened the dazzling magic that's slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can't figure out why."

    Laura says: "Narrator is inconsistent."
    "3+ for interesting story line"
    Overall

    Over all a very interesting author-great story with lots of jokes and silly parts however, there comes a time when the sex stuff if just too much and overdone. This is close to boarding on repetive.

    In April 2002, Janine Latus' youngest sister, Amy, wrote a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer. "Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved", it read, "but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of ways. Based on his criminal past, writing this out just seems like the smart thing to do. If I am missing or dead this obviously has not protected me...."

    Angie says: "I felt deceived by this book"
    "Very quick listen"
    Overall

    Overall the story was well told and the narrator-decent. It was quick and easy to follow along with but just not that intersting in my opinion.

    Fifteen-year-old Meredith hoped to never again see her father, who did something unspeakable to her. But after only three years in jail, he's coming back home - and she's terrified. Critically acclaimed young adult author Laura Wiess' novel deals frankly with the sensitive subject of child abuse.

    J. Busconi says: "Not that insightful"
    "Not that insightful"
    Overall

    This is a good book if you are looking to listen to something in which your attention will wander or you put it down for some time and pick it back up. It is not "deep", informative or even that interesting.

    The story is getting old but the author continues to write very well, interject twists and background information that keeps the reader/listener interested.

    All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own.

    Very good-
    Interesting new perspective to the characters and actually pretty funny when author felt that the mood may be too dark or disinterested.

    He is the guardian of hell, more monster than man. She is the goddess of oppression, more angel than woman. Together they will enter the flames to battle a dangerous horde of demon lords - and discover a passion unlike any other....

    "It finally ends"
    Overall

    Well-it was good to have this storyline close-at least for now. The characters became to repetitive and the story line just a bit dull. The descriptions of events were generally the same from the author's previous books and the over all concepts; though interesting at first-have been overdone.

    Will be interested to see what else the author can write about as she uses the flow of words well, adds in humor when needed and leaves enough information for the listener to wonder what will happen next.

    "I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne - if I can stay alive long enough to claim it. My cousin, Prince Cel, is determined to see that I don't. As long as we both live, we are in a race for the crown; whichever one of us reproduces first gets the throne. So now the men of my royal guard - frightening warriors skilled with blade, spell, and gun - have become my lovers, auditioning with pleasure for the role of future king and father of my child."

    Mysticalsister says: "Great Adult Fantasy Series --"
    "There is something"
    Overall

    This was the second book by this author that I have listened too and though overall I have to say the storyline is completely outrageous and sort of silly-it is interesting in a voyeuristic kind of way. Seriously. I do not believe that it would be possible for someone to have as much "passion"; as the main character is supposed to have and admit I am compelled at least little to see if she does become with child and if so-will she know of the father is. So yes, despite only a 3 star rating, I will be getting the next book-purely to satisfy the above questions.

    "All it would take was my true name being mentioned after dark, and it would float back to my aunt. She was the Queen of Air and Darkness, and that meant that anything said in the dark was hers to hear, eventually. The fact that spotting the missing Elven American Princess had become more popular than spotting Elvis helped."

    Overall

    This was actually pretty good. Some funny parts, interesting parts, and overall a good story line. I am glad that it was recommended to me and will try a few other in the series.
