A Caress of Twilight (Meredith Gentry #2) – Laurell K. Hamilton

Synopsis:

After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while she enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life attempting to conceive a baby with the warriors of her royal guard, she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that’s just her day job. . . .

Review:

This is a great continuation of “Merry’s” story.  It is still a little hard to follow, for me at least, because there are so many people involved and there are a lot of politics that go with being heir to the throne.

The author is fantastic at describing things but it can get a little long winded.  She is very imaginative and the world she has created get bigger with each book.  It’s fascinating to read it as it unfolds.  I still feel like it is taking awhile for the story to have any kind of climax and I realize that this series is 8 books as of right now but I still look for some kind of build up and there really hasn’t been anything yet.  I look forward to continuing the series.

There were a few typos and grammar errors that got through the editors but nothing to distract the reader from the story.

Recommended for adult readers who like romance.  There is graphic sex situations and some language.
