Publisher's Summary

“I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne - if I can stay alive long enough to claim it.”

After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while she enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life attempting to conceive a baby with the warriors of her royal guard, she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that’s just her day job....

Critic Reviews

"Hamilton weaves the modern and magical seamlessly in a compelling tale of the effects of three kinds of power - magical, sexual, and the most dangerous, political." ( Booklist)

Great Adult Fantasy Series --

If your not shy about very well written sex scenes, that are also important to the storyline, than this series is a wild ride. Princess Meridith is descended from several fertility goddesses, so naturally her greatest power is expressed in the bedroom. Her lovers are all beings who have lost their power, and consequently, the world of the fey is dying -- but through her, they, and the fey, are revitalized. As a fiction writer, I find Ms. Hamilton's depictions to be a masterclass in writing a compelling sex scene. As a fan, I am endlessly entertained by her originality, and the courage of her convictions to tell the story as it is meant to be told. Having read the series, I'm now enjoying the audio books, just as much, if not more. The narrator is perfect.

For those who find it to be too much, I say, quit complaining and move along. This series is meant for adults. Go read Harry Potter. Again.

Great Story- Terrible Narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Laurell K Hamilton is a first rate story teller. Her characters are vivid and realistic with wonderful growth and change through out the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Caress of Twilight?

Well I can't say that or its a spoiler!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laural Merlington?

Kimberly Alexis!

Was A Caress of Twilight worth the listening time?

Yes

Any additional comments?

If you are going to read a book that has Gaelic based names etc please learn how to pronounce them. Sioban is not pronounced "See o Ban" it's pronounced "Shivan" for example!

Addicted

I just can't get enough of the Meredith Gentry Series. It contains all aspects I crave Fantasy, Romance, Drama, Action, and Humor sprinkled throughout each climaxing novel. I often find myself longing to be part "She" so much so that I'd gladly except relations to the lesser Fey. Laurell K Hamilton I salute your ability to weave a tale that makes me want to pay almost anything just to get my next fix.

Good story...Horrible narrator!

When I first started listening to the book, I thought possibly my Ipod had broken down. The narrator sounds like she's been fed through a machine somehow. Very jarring and poor character voices. I'm finding it difficult to follow along on the story because of the narration. Great story, but poor narration.

Male voices hurt

Listening to this narrator read male voices physically hurt. You cant tell who is who because they all sound like members from the lollypop guild.

wonderful

This is my favorite Merideth Gentry novel. I love Laural Merlington as a voice actor. She gets the voices down perfectly so you always know who is speaking! Very difficult to do. I would always recommend Laurell K. Hamilton's books.
