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."Explicit Language Warning: You must be 18 years or older to purchase.

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!
