Laurell K. Hamilton is the New York Times bestselling author of the Meredith Gentry novels: A Kiss of Shadows, A Caress of Twilight, Seduced by Moonlight, A Stroke of Midnight, Mistral's Kiss, A Lick of Frost, and Divine Misdemeanors, as well as seventeen acclaimed Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, novels.

Wild magic and wilder sex enliven the seventh heady escapade (after 2007's A Lick of Frost) for half-mortal, half-faerie and pregnant Princess Meredith NicEssus, aka Merry Gentry, as she rides into faerie on a wild hunt for revenge after the death of her ensorcelled grandmother. Merry is still recovering from being raped by her uncle, Seelie King Taranis, and the loss of her transformed lover Frost. Though determined to protect herself and her numerous guards and lovers--including the six fathers of her unborn twins--with every fiber of her generous body, bloody battles with the Seelie Court's minions make her question whether being a faerie queen is worth the price. The dreamy development of the surrealistic fey world puts this installment well above its predecessors; a tidy ending will leave fans wondering whether it concludes the series. (Nov.)
