"My royal guards surround me, and my best loved - my Darkness and my Killing Frost - are always beside me, sworn to protect and make love to me. But still the threat grows greater. For despite all my carnal efforts I remain childless, while the machinations of my sinister, sadistic Queen and her confederates remain tireless. So my bodyguards and I have slipped back into Los Angeles, hoping to outrun the gathering shadows of court intrigue. But even exile isn't enough to escape the grasp of those with dark designs.
"Now King Taranis, powerful and vain-glorious ruler of faerie's Seelie Court, has leveled accusations against my noble guards of a heinous crime - and has gone so far as to ask the mortal authorities to prosecute. If he succeeds, my men face extradition to faerie and the hideous penalties that await them there. But I know that Taranis' charges are baseless, and I sense that his true target is me. He tried to kill me when I was a child. Now I fear his intentions are far more terrifying."

Fairie tales: listen to another Meredith Gentry fantasy.

Way to go! For a while I thought that the books by Laurel K. Hamilton were slipping into a rut of nothing but sex and more sex. I thoroughly enjoyed that this book, while not light on the sex, was meatier plot. I felt it was much truer to the characters we fell in love with. I hope that the next books continue in this fashion!
And while the narrator is good, I wish Claudia Black had narrated them ALL! I love the work she did in Swallowing Darkness sooooo much that I'd spend the money and buy the entire series again if she was narrating it. She is AWESOME!
I like fiction(Rick Riordan),sci-fi(Orson S. Card), and vampires and werewolfs(LK Hamilton) to name a few.
Sweet golden silk in my ears. This emotional roller coaster of a tale just keeps getting better and better! Can't stop loving this narrator/author combo!
Merry & her men have another wild ride through fairy. Interesting sex scenes but good story line.
This is the last book in the series to be narrated by Laural Merlington (thankfully). It's a shorter novel more a transition between the longer books 5 and 7. I think the best part is learning more about Frost and how he came into being. For some reason they didn't whispersync this one book out of the series. Re-reading this series is the first time I've truly used the whispersync feature to go back and forth with my kindle and I really missed it.
I would recommend this book to to any one looking to be swept away to another reality
the entire Meridtih Gentry series is captivating.
I like the story quite a bit but I just can't get past the sex. I realize this is part of the book and am not criticizing it or those that like this but it's just not my cup of tea. I thought I'd get past it and finish the series but since I listened to this well over a year ago and still have no desire to read the next I guess I was wrong. I'm fine with a sex scene where it is relevant to the story but the story in this book pretty much IS just sex so I'm done. Good story interupted by WAY too much sex. Not for me.
I'm an eclectic reader. I'm 5 foot 3 in, brown eyes and silver hair. The rest is subject to change.
Yummy, exciting and more....Please!!
I liked getting to know more about the characters..learning how frost came into being...
Yes I have. She is one of my favorite performers. With this book she gets to have fun with the story..
Yes it is.. I have listened to it several times
I love Laurel K. Hamilton. I am well on my way to reading and listening to all her books. I have yet to get bored or burnt out on either of her series books.
