      It s official My love affair with Laurell K Hamilton is at an end I should send her flowers and tell her how nice the journey was We re going different places, you and I, Ms Hamilton we need to part ways, literally.Both of Laurell K Hamilton s series have devolved into orgies all sex, no plot In her most recent Anita Blake release there was no time for other things to happen, because everyone was too busy getting laid Anita than anyone Things aren t much different in fairyland either Meredith i [...]

      Warning Quite a Harsh Little Review Ahead Actually, less a review and a roasting In fact, not so much a roasting as a napalming Plus, what could be considered spoilers If you don t already know about all the sex.I ve been hearing about Lauell K Hamilton s Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series for a while, so was curious to see what the fuss was about Thank god I found one of the Merry Gentry books at a 5 book sale If I d spent any I d be even MORE disappointed.Maybe it s because I started half w [...]

      Fourth in the Meredith Gentry erotic horror urban fantasy series revolving around an Unseelie faerie princess who is part human, part brownie, and half fae And the contested heir to the throne.My TakeIt s a matter of choice and interpretation the magic is returning to the Unseelie Court through Merry s actions Even the sithen is coming alive, twisting time, nature, and d cor If Merry took the prudent course to placate her aunt and stay alive, what would happen to the artifacts, the magic Would i [...]

      oh oh oh, okay so we are going a different direction here What I love, What I loath Here we go What I loath oh yea I am going to start with the bad news Doc So Meryy Gentry is full of angst Political drama and all around circle talk I hate it, the political drama okay is a tad intresting to see how LKH sees the world of Gentry You have so much happening, racism, violence and well just Gah The Queen, I can not stand her I know most people can not but for me it has to do with the fact that she is [...]

    5. Lisa says:
      Well I am not actually sure why I keep reading these books I am a huge fan of the Anita Blake character yes, sometimes the sex is a bit much, but I enjoy the characters and am looking forward to each new book I like the suspense, the plot development, the relationships and the fear I am a big chicken.I finally decided to read the Meredith Gentry books I am actually listening to them, unabridged of course The narrator is pretty good The only complaint I have for her is that she changed the pronun [...]

      Sigh I didn t think it would come to this point.But it has.I ve resorted to making an excel sheet so that I can remember everyone this girl is fucking.I did this with the Anita Blake books and stopped reading them because my excel sheet was needing too much upkeep I spent time on that damn document then I did reading.I feel like Merry Gentry books are coming to that.Unfinished list of Merry s fuck buddies so far view spoiler Doyle darkness looks like night timeFrost has silver sparkly hairRhys [...]

    7. Daniel says:
      More of the same with Hamilton Lots of sex interrupted by a bit of plot This book pretty much takes place in the span of only one day and we see Merry get action than porn star Only reason I read these books is because Hamilton does write well and her plot what little there is of it is extremely interesting and is a fully developed fantasy world with many well defined characters Shame the author can t get over her sexual fetish though I miss the style of the early Anita Blake novels Sometimes l [...]

    8. Denisa says:
      Well, the last one was better.The story continues much the same way Like the other books, it has some stuff that are annoying, some inconsistencies that are hard to understand, but I still like the world builder and the plot and even some characters All in all, a pretty nice read.

    9. Kathryn says:
      I don t know if there s much I can say in this review that I haven t said in the other three reviews Slow pace blah blah blah, obsession with descriptions of clothing blah blah blah, Mary Sue who s passionately hated by half the characters and passionately desired by the other half if someone s indifferent then they re not featured in this book , and did I mention the slow pace This one didn t even get two days of real time apparently now the magical dwelling place of the fairie host is moving a [...]

    10. Jeri says:
      This one takes place the day after the last book, and covers less than one full day in the life of our heroine During this period, she investigates a murder, survives several attacks both physical and political , has amazing and magical literally sex with several new partners, and gains and shares new magical powers In other words, a typical day.I both loved this one, and was disappointed in it I loved it because I love spending time with Merry Co all those gorgeous men , and continue to be eng [...]

    11. Carolyn F. says:
      This is the audiobook Loved the narrator I like it the second time going through it than the first Although it s a 3.5 stars as it s not the best Usually she has a summation of what happens at the end of the book, but this goes straight through to Mistral s Kiss Meredith Gentry, 5 , which I started this am Merry is back at the Faery mound and is trying to solve a crime, stay one step ahead of the queen, make then men happy and try to heal as many of the guards as she can In between all this, the [...]

    12. Jennifer says:
      The Good Merry and her men continue to be awesome, navigating the deadly political situation they ve been thrust into A murder mystery in the Slithen mixes the world of magic and faerie with the human forensics I love how everything Merry says or does changes the whole of faerie Her every action seems to push the plot into a new direction You never know what the magic may do.The Bad The book moves at a quick pace the entire time, except when things get sexy Those scenes seem to go on at a snails [...]

    13. Diane says:
      Dudes I m setting myself free I feel the same pain that I felt during the later Anita Blake books There s just way too much description, metaphysics, and over indulged sex scenes whilst not moving the plot along quickly enough Since I m not familiar with the method of the madness, I m bidding this series adieu I m only reading one Laurell K book and that will be the last one in the Anita series that s due out soon I mean seriouslyI was okay until the idea of goblin sex, or tentacles came into p [...]

    14. Ana says:
      It gets freakier and freakier It s probably a bad sign that I really like it, right I didn t know I had it in me Threesomes, love, pain, voyeurism, tortureYou could say there s a little for everyone and it s partly true but I think a sensible person can t exactly stomach the creepiest parts I know I have some hard time with it and I ve grown accustomed.The magic part of it all thoughw that s overwhelming in its beauty and power It s my favorite part of the books along the moments with Darkness, [...]

    15. Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞ says:
      I don t even know how to review this Except for at the beginning, this book was non stop actiond not all sex believe it or not Although I must say, if threesomes or multiple partners bother you then don t read this series.It is a bit overwhelming with all the new characters but still very interesting with how LKH can come up with so many different variations of types of Fae The threesomes were a bit much but if you have read any LKH s books then its pretty much par for the course I would ve like [...]

    19. Irene Hollimon says:
      This was another re read This Tuesday and last brought some many new books that Ive been waiting for I m not sure to continue on re reading this series or not I loved this book It had so much emotion in it I cried I remember now why I love this author so much I once said I d read blurbs on cereal boxes if she wrote them She wrote one of the Star Trek TNG books and I remember being impressed with her writing even then but alas she was already into selling Anita Blake that she unfortunately never [...]

    20. Dianne says:
      Merry is racing against timeere has been a murder within the Sithin, one of the Unseelie and a human reporter to be exact The politics is still there, greater than ever as well as the race to get Merry pregnant before Cel is free from his torture It is interesting that some places has this series listed under the horror genre and I would have to agree There is one particular scene at the end when you may just have to be near a bathroom while you read it just in case you need to urp while reading [...]

    21. C.C. Thomas says:
      I wish there were half stars.4 is a bit too high and 3 not nearly high enough This series always places me in somewhat of a quandarye, well, it s just weird.The main character, Merry Gentry, is competing to become queen of a paranormal court of some really killer faeries and other creatures The competition is between her and her cousin, Cai, who is insane and it is a race to see which of them is the first to become pregnant With that being said, there is sex going on in this book than any dirty [...]

    22. Danielle (Danniegurl) says:
      3.5Once again I find myself frustrated with this series It s good, it has a lot going for it, but LKH has not moved us to the next point of the plot In the last book it was 2 days before she was required to go to the Seelie court, and in this book it seems to be only 1 day has past but much has happened.I am annoyed with how the Queen isn t challenged or killed Why hasn t the goddess decided to speak to her through Merry Why not tell her to get her ass off the throne or face true death I m sick [...]

    23. Lyndsey Dow says:
      Well this is a surprising turn of events, as Andais finally reveals why she can longer claim the throne With Meredithe s powers growing, an uprising of assignation attempts on the Princesses life leave the guards, shaken and the thought and possibility of almost losing one special guard makes Meredith quite afraid of who makes her pregnant What if the person just happens to be one of the sex guards and not one she loves The Princess finds it hard to think of what will happen if she loses her lov [...]

    24. Kathleen says:
      So this is how I would describe a Meredith Gentry book Merry almost gets killed, then she has sex with one or people, something mystical and mysterious happens from aforementioned sex, followed by a long conversation about how amazing it is and how it hasn t happened in many centuries and then the whole thing repeats It gets a bit repetitive and its really kind of sad when the sex scenes are so numerous and similar that they just get boring and you find yourself skimming through them.That said, [...]

    26. Monica says:
      I say as I did in the review for the book following this I would like to take Mistral out of the book and take his sexy butt home with me He and Merry have good chemistry and even though he is new to the situation he is HOT.This book was strange I thought the murder plot line was poorly constructed I get maybe she was trying to keep an element of Merry s PI side but it was just strange and didn t even matter to Merry s overall plot line It was a good read though besides that one weird, ill fitti [...]

    27. Adele says:
      To quote one of my favorite movies sex sex sex thats all they think about Monty pythons life of brian.It seems so accurate when speaking about this book and series in general This whole trying to get merry pregnant storyline is starting to wear thin Sex with this one to save them sex with that one to form an alliance Sex sex sex.I like erotic books but i just got a bit sick of the sex that i started to skip the sexy scenes much as i could anyway.

    28. Jessica ❁ ➳ Silverbow ➳ ❁ Rabid Reads says:
      2.5 starsMore sex More men Less plot.All of the nearly 400 pages of this book took place over the course of a single day and night in the Sithen Was the time running a bit wonky in fairyland Well, maybe Doesn t change the fact that all of the nearly 400 pages of this book took place over the course of a single day and night in the Sithen.Why did I agree to review A Shiver of Light, again

    29. Ashley says:
      This sequel was strange It took place during the course of one day, and took place in one location, the sithen.It set up a lot of stuff for the future books, and although I wouldn t say it s as good as the others, it s an essential piece to the puzzle I love the character Mistral, and I look forward to reading Smut Warning, per usual.
