Publisher's Summary

"I am Meredith Gentry, princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of faerie, onetime private investigator in the mortal world. To be crowned queen, I must first continue the royal bloodline and give birth to an heir of my own. If I fail, my aunt, Queen Andais, will be free to do what she most desires: install her twisted son, Cel, as monarch...and kill me.

"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."

Getting back to the meat and potatoes!

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!

Love, love, love this series!

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!

not the best, not the worst, a transition

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.

New narrator needed!

I love these stories but the narrator... ugh. She's not bad a narrating really but for some reason almost all the men now sound like Kurag the goblin king. She needs to work on her male voices. I just don't buy Frost and Sholto having this rough uncultured gravely sounding voice. Plus she is just plain to old sounding for this role. I'm not thrilled having sex scenes narrated by someone who sounds like she's a grandmother.

So much happening

This was a shorter book but so much happened. Taranis has a big part to play and you learn more about the Series court. also learn Frosts past which was heart warming and wrenching at the same time. Can't say much more without spoilers so I'll just say definitely recommend this one.
