Overview

A Lick of Frost (Meredith Gentry Series #6) by Laurell K. Hamilton

I am Meredith Gentry, princess and heir apparent to the throne in the realm of faerie, onetime private investigator in the mortal world. To be crowned queen, I must first continue the royal bloodline and give birth to an heir of my own. If I fail, my aunt, Queen Andais, will be free to do what she most desires: install her twisted son, Cel, as monarch . . . and kill me.

My royal guards surround me, and my best loved–my Darkness and my Killing Frost–are always beside me, sworn to protect and make love to me. But still the threat grows greater. For despite all my carnal efforts, I remain childless, while the machinations of my sinister, sadistic Queen and her confederates remain tireless. So my bodyguards and I have slipped back into Los Angeles, hoping to outrun the gathering shadows of court intrigue. But even exile isn’t enough to escape the grasp of those with dark designs.

Now King Taranis, powerful and vainglorious ruler of faerie’s Seelie Court, has leveled accusations against my noble guards of a heinous crime–and has gone so far as to ask the mortal authorities to prosecute. If he succeeds, my men face extradition to faerie and the hideous penalties that await them there. But I know that Taranis’s charges are baseless, and I sense that his true target is me. He tried to kill me when I was a child. Now I fear his intentions are far more terrifying.

I greatly enjoy these delightfully trashy books, but the number of typos in this one really ticks me off. If I'm paying the same as I'd pay for the paperback, I should get at least the same production quality.

I've been slowly but surely making my way through this series (fingers crossed that I will get Swallowing Darkness soon!) and I have never been disapointed! I've grown to love all the characters and I mourned the loss of one (I won't mention who) in this novel. It's a great book, great characters, love the plot and the writing style. I'm very happy with this book.

I actually really enjoy the Merry Gentry series and would like Hamilton to continue with it... however, I find the major plot point to be a bit of a disappointment STOP NOW IF YOU DON"T WANT SPOILERS AT ALL Having mulitiple people be the father of her twins is an extreme cop out. The whole point was that she would get 1 king... and the king may even be someone who wouldn't be a good king. This way Merry gets all the "men she loves" to be with her forever and always and it just seems forced. It completely negates any and all tension that Hamilton tried to build with the series. Also the sex scenes have gotten boring as there is no build up. THere is her talking about each man (in minute detail that she has given us time and time again) and then sex. And to me it seems like bad sex. I am rereading this novel at the moment because the first read I loved it, but upon rereading it, it just seems lazy.
