Since there are over 150 reviews for this book, my review will be brief. This second installment was pretty good but could have been better. I went in reading this book fully aware of the fact that Laurell has a mini obsession with conveniently writing in outlandish sexual situations just so Merry can have sex and I was ok with that. However this second installment really tried my patience. There was a lot of unnecessary rehashing and explanations, almost as if she were stalling and drawing out the storyline; in addition, the sex she writes in for Merry just sucks! I like the twist of a female having a harem of men to serve her but in Merry's case the men don't seem to be going out of their way to please Merry or even consider pleasing her. It mainly feels like Merry gives a lot of pity sex or just plain passionless and pointless quickies or pretty much just gives. Apart from the nuisances, the fantasy portion of this installment was creative, action-packed and electrifying. Laurell has a created a magical world filled with danger, darkness and excitement. I recommend this series to only those fellow dark urban fantasy readers who are fully forewarned of the many bizarre sexual settings and the portrayal of Merry as the center of the universe or the one that everyone desires. If you have the patience to tolerate these things, only then do I recommend this series to you. Aside from my frustrations with the sexual aspect of this installment, when Laurell is sticking to the storyline, the storyline is phenomenal. Fantasy wise, I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment Seduced by Moonlight.

The sequel to A Kiss of Shadows and even better. I loved this book. I could not put it down. Merry continues her quest for the throne by spending every night in bed with one or more of her sexy guards. The plot gets thicker as the Seelie Court is brought further into the picture. The storyline is amazing and enticing. The description can get a little excessive but it isn't so unbearable you go insane trying to get through it, Laurell K. Hamilton is a master with words. The characters are each amazing in their complexity, each one is unique and quite realistic. I love how she fuses a mythology of gods and godessess into the story of the fey. The tone is sensual and comedic but sometimes serious and dark, always mind bending. A page turner just like the one before it and I'm sure the one after it. Romance is chaotic through out it and in different ways, Merry is in love with one of her guards just as another finally opens up to her and joins her bed. A highly recommended read for anyone of the paranormal/fantasy romance genre.

The second book in the Meredith Gentry series continues where the first left off, and is just as great as the first. Full of fantasy, steamy romance, and a little bit of suspense, I love this series!

This series just gets better and better! Once you read the first book you can't seem to stop reading the rest. Once I started the first, I couldn't wait until the other two came out. I hope there is alot more to come!

Another fantastic read from LKH. I am highly enjoying this series. I find myself completely engrossed into the story line and carrying about the fate of the characters. A great read for readers not prudish to the amount and type of sexual context.

LKH out did herself with her second book in the Merry Gentry series. I thought her first book was all about erotic sex and no plot. A Caress of Twilight more set the stage for her series. You could've started the series with this book. The plot was intriguing and drew me in from page one until the end. The characters definately became more defined and more loved. I don't know who I love more. Some of the characters that I didn't like in the first book, I now love in the second book. LKH is a beautiful writer and so talented. I can't wait to read the rest of her novels in this series.

I love this book and it just keeps getting better and better. Once you pick it up there is no way that you could stop. My husband got upset with me cause i burnt the rice while I was cooking and reading at the same time. (lol).
This book and a lick of Frost just love it i think they are my fave two for now.

Laurell K. Hamilton is amazing. Her creativity never ceases to amaze me. This book combines myster, action, horror, fantacy, a sex all together. The sex in this book has nothing to do with romance or love, but it is driven by need and power. The characters and the various cultural differeces between the faerie's both Unseelie and Seelie and the humans never fails to amaze me. This book along with the first, A Kiss of Shadows, are must reads.

A fanasty, paranormal/romance with a thrilling ending. The sex scenes were hot and romantic! The suspense to find out who wins the throne will keep you reading until the end. Like author Sherry Mauro not everything is sunshine and roses with this kind story...but nicely written
