So I was wrong partly. A Lick of Frost did not really have Frost center stage in fact Frost plays a disappearing act.
Staying in a small conference room was bad enough without the pressure of defending themselves against the King of Light. Three of Merry’s guards have been accused of rape of a Seelie lady. They are lies all part of the King’s plot. Merry will now start fearing the king more as his attentions become clear that he is interested in her more as a woman. With a battle looming in the background Merry will not only fear the King but now mourn the loss of one of her beloved guards and for the safety of her children.
A Lick of Frost was not as quick as the fifth book but it was a quick read for me. You are pulled into the story quickly with the turn of the first page. I liked the addiction of lawyers in the first part especially the one that was more immune to them.
I was happy that Hamilton finally had Merry get pregnant but the surprise is who is the father to these twins. I liked the twist and not terribly surprised especially as this is supposed to be the fey and magic is all around them.
As far as the series goes I am liking it more and more as we are coming to more an a conclusion especially with the ending of this book. Of course the ending is really nothing much to be too happy with except wanting to see the King killed for his actions.
I am very interested in the next book to find out what will happen with Merry and her men.
Meredith Gentry has been in hiding for the last three years from faerie but now things have changed when Merry is needed to come back home. Merry has no desire to leave but the last case has left her shaken as a human abused her with the help of magic. Things are going from bad to worse when the Queen’s guard comes to retrieve her. Merry will go and find out that all things are about to change in the Kingdom as Meredith Gentry, Princess of high court of Faerie could now have a chance at thrown. The only catch is she has to become pregnant before her cousin.
As I have caught up with the series of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter I browsed the other series of Laurell Hamilton. The other series which has eight books is Meredith Gentry. The first book is A Kiss of Shadows and I have to say I was hooked. I wanted to know more about Merry and the sidhe.
Hamilton stays true to sex and passion in her books but this one kept you involved in the story and gives plenty of details with what is happening around them. There are many intriguing characters and I am interested in reading how they will all fair in the series.
