One by one, consorts have come to her bed to help her save her claim - and her life. Now Merry has left the faeries society to return to Los Angeles, accompanied by her bodyguards, where she will continue in her efforts to conceive an heir.

An Author's Advice

In our interview, Hamilton had several great pieces of advice for aspiring writers, including this one: "Send the story, or book out, then get started on the next one. Don't fret, and hover around the mailbox angsting over that one story. It's like a mother with one child -- you worry more. So have more literary children, that way when one is rejected you know that there are others out there, that haven't been."
