Publisher's Summary

Merry Gentry pretends to be human. She moved to Los Angeles and began working as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency. But all of this is just a disguise; in fact she is a princess of faerie, her real name is Meredith Nic Essus, and she had to flee the Dark Court of Faerie because of attempts on her life.
In order to inherit her rightful crown, Merry needed to conceive an heir, a notoriously difficult task for the slow-reproducing Fey. In the 2009 novel Divine Misdemeanors, Merry had finally achieved that goal - and fans have been kept waiting all this time to find out what happens!

Narration not for me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who had not listened to the other books

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Shiver of Light?

The babies!

How could the performance have been better?

Quit changing narrators. If you have to make changes, PLEASE find someone who can do multiple voices and not just try to change accents. It seemed she even forgot which voice/accent belonged to which character.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I got a printed book and loved it. I enjoyed revisiting the characters and story. I hope there are more books in this series.

Any additional comments?

Don't let the narration put you off the book or the series. If you can't get into the narration, read it. It will not disappoint.

don't waste your credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one it was that bad.

What was most disappointing about Laurell K. Hamilton’s story?

She has lost her ability to write an interesting story, its just disappointing after waiting so long to find out what happens to Merry and her men. The death of one of the best of her baby daddies (and my personal favorite) was just pointless, not to mention defying already established rules about how difficult the Sidhe are to kill. There were so many interesting tidbits that could have been explored, that would have made the book so much better, but alas LKH has so lost her touch, I doubt she could write a decent grocery list these days.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was terrible. Her english accent invaded every character to the point where the LA cops sounded like London Bobbies.

What character would you cut from A Shiver of Light?

Taranus, he's an imbecile, how he managed to indirectly cause the death of one of the main characters is beyond me. A stupider bogey man has never been written.

Any additional comments?

Nope, it pretty much sucked.
