Publisher's Summary

You may know me best as Meredith Nic Essus, princess of faerie. Or perhaps as Merry Gentry, Los Angeles private eye. In the fey and mortal realms alike, my life is the stuff of royal intrigue and celebrity drama. Among my own, I have confronted horrendous enemies, endured my noble kins treachery and malevolence, and honored my duty to conceive a royal heirall for the right to claim the throne. But I turned my back on court and crown, choosing exile in the human world and in the arms of my beloved Frost and Darkness.

While I may have rejected the monarchy, I cannot abandon my people. Someone is killing the fey, which has left the LAPD baffled and my guardsmen and me deeply disturbed. My kind are not easily captured or killed. At least not by mortals. I must get to the bottom of these horrendous murders, even if that means going up against Gilda, the Fairy Godmother, my rival for fey loyalties in Los Angeles.

But even stranger things are happening. Mortals I once healed with magic are suddenly performing miracles, a shocking phenomenon wreaking havoc on human/faerie relations. Though I am innocent, dark suspicions of banned magical activities swirl around me.

I thought I had left the blood and politics behind in my own turbulent realm. I had dreamed of an idyllic life in sunny L.A. with my beloved ones beside me. But it becomes time to wake up and realize that evil knows no borders, and that nobody lives forever even if they're magical.

    "Would have been good, but..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't mind the "slutty" and numerous sex scenes should enjoy this book. Not for me, I gave up romance novels a long time ago.


    What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

    All of the extremely descriptive sex. I thought the book was a fantasy novel or I would not have bought it.


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    All of the characters were equally well performed by the narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Divine Misdemeanors: Meredith Gentry, Book 8?

    I omit all of the porn, and just leave a hint of what transpired between the characters.

    "Great book"

    All of the Meredith Gentry books are great.

    Yes

    no

    "I love Meredith."

    I've read /listened to every book in this series and have enjoyed all of them, even this one, even though it lagged a bit for me (did she really have to have sex every time she saw one of her men????), but it was still worth the credit for me.

    "Disappointing"

    The first seven books in the series are fun and spectacular. This latest one takes off on a very different tangent than the other books and leaves A LOT of questions lingering for answers since Swallowing Darkness. I had a very hard time getting through this book. I would never have started the series if this was the first book... harsh, but true. Hopefully the next book goes back to its roots.

    "the book is okish hate the narrator"

    She is breathy and praticaly moans through the "dirty" parts. A waste of a good credit. I will not be getting any other books read by Laural Merlington. And this series I feel has came to and end, Laurell Hamilton is having trouble keeping her books about anything other than just having lot of crazy sex.

    "Divine what?"

    I have loved all the the Meredith Gentry books till this one. This one was a huge, huge disappointment.The only reason I give it a two is for the sake of the rest of the books in the series.

    Story
    "Lost me in the tea room"

    There has to be nearly 10 minutes in the beginning of this book where the Merry character describes in painfully dull detail which coffee or tea drink each character is ordering. There were 7 of them. WTF? She also describes her size and the size of her men relative to the size of a freaking couch. I have the feeling that LKH was sitting on the john playing sudoku while she was writing this dreck. She says she's writing another installment. God help us.

    Even Laural Merlington must have been doing something else while reading this -- she emphasizes every badly written word of it to the point of sarcasm.

    Story
    "back to the first narrator and the detective work"

    Well, they returned to Laural Merlington as the narrator on this book who if you see my earlier reviews, she leaves a lot to be desired. It's a better story than how it comes across. I like that they went back to working at the now Gray & Hart Detective Agency. It's less steamy than the other books in the series but still has it's moments. I just wish the pregancy was further along. At this rate we'll be on book 12 by the time we see the twins! So is it credit worthy? Not really. But if you have the kindle, the whisperlink feature is quite handy. I've used it for all the books in this series, except for one, and they are less expensive that way too.
