I think that this book was even better than LKH's Anita Blake series. Why? Well, Ms. Hamilton introduces a bunch of gorgeous sidhe males, like Doyle, Frost, Rhys, Barinthus, Galen, etc. Most of the Ravens (Queen's Guards) lust after Merry badly, since the cruel Queen makes all of them celibate. My personal fave is Prince Cel, Andais's darkly handsome, evil son. I just LUV bad guys in black! However, this book is NOT for kiddies. Meredith seems to have sex or sexual activities with almost every male in the book. All in all, it is definitely much more erotic, much more sensual than the Anita Blake books. Merry is 33, and not shy at all with men in sexual matters, whereas Anita had been initially uncomfortable with her sexual status. Throughout this book, readers get a sense of Merry's growing powers, as the Princess of Flesh (just as Anita's power had grown). I can't wait to read CARESS OF TWILIGHT, the 2nd book in this fascinating series!!!
Ms Hamilton also creates really great characters. Given she's already written a series, I do hope she feels another series coming on. Don't miss it.
I loved it and I really want to read more of these characters - this book is definately going on my bookshelf as a keeper!!
I'd be tempted to rate this slightly lower, but given that I was compelled to read this in one go to find out what happens (only to be frustrated by its open ending), it has to mean that, once again, Hamilton has come up trumps.
