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."


What the Critics Say

"Hamilton's trademark mix of the personal and emotional along with the sexual will as usual delight her fans....yet another tour de force ending." (Publishers Weekly)

What is with the pronunciation?

This is the second Merry Gentry audiobook I purchased, and it has the same narrator as before. Why, oh why does she pronounce names differently in this book? Doyle, the Queen, Nicoven are all pronounced differently from one book to another and it drives me to distraction. Outside of that, the narrator does a good job with the oodles of voices she must play. The book as a whole is full of so many similes that towards the end of the book becomes a bit much, but of course I still want to know what happens next.

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.
