"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."

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!
Love literature but I am strictly an audiobook man. Actor, Model, Singer, V.O., Performer, Emcee/Host, Sports Official
OOOOHHHHHH NOOOOOO poor Frost! Enjoyed the mad king though his downfall was a bit early. Wish that the story would stay a bit more consistent with itself. Sometimes it will say that a person had never done something that they had done int eh previos book. Most are small things but still. Also wish Meredith would claim titles like queen once she had earned them.
... don't know. GREAT BOOK! GREAT READER.
I LOVE HER READING SHE IS SOOOOO VERSATILE AND CHANGES HER VOICE PER CHARACTER AND SITUATION. AMAZING! SO MAD SHE DIDN"T DO THE ENTIRE SERIES> :( ALMOST WANT TO SKP THROUGH THE OTHER READERS BOOKS.
Loved this book, might be the best one so far!!
I laughed, smiled, cried and did it all over again!!
Honestly one of my favorite books in the series. Frost is one of my favorite characters in the Merry Series. Yet, despite all of their attempts at pregnancy... winning only becomes defeat without Frost
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!
