Publisher's Summary

"I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. Now there are those among us who whisper I am more. And who can blame them? I've awakened the dazzling magic that's slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can't figure out why."My aunt, Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen's Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures."But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe-blooded ones, the power surges like never before."It all began with a chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well - its disappearance ages ago stripped them of all of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they're consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it."But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I."

Narrator is inconsistent.

This narrator has done several books in this series, so far I have listened to 1, 2, and 3, and she has yet to be consistent in how she pronounces names. I know Ms. Merlington is a popular reader, but this is sad.

I could get over the queen's name, maeve's sidhe name, and the demifay queen's name being different becasue they aren't used much, but Doyle pronounced as "Dole" is very irritating. His name is used to often for that kind of mistake.

Performance creepy

Would you listen to Seduced by Moonlight again? Why?

No. The lady reading the book didn't manage the male voices very well, and when it came to sex scenes involving the smaller fae the voices she used were child-like and thus uber-creepy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Darkness. He is cool, calm and dangerous.

Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

No, she has ruined all the Hamilton books.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I love the book itself but could not make it through this performance.
