Book Description

14 Jan 2005 Merry Gentry (Book 3)

To some I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. To others I am Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Faerie. And there are those who whisper that I am both of these and more.

My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, no long distracted by her sadistic pastimes, now focusses unwaveringly on me. I spend each night with my immortal guards, but still no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something IS happening to me. I appear to have awakened a force that's lain dormant for thousands of years and I haven't the damndest idea how or why...

It all began with the chalice. I dreamed it, and there it was - cool and hard - when I awoke. My guards know this ancient relic well - its disappearance so many ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. And here it is with us now. My touch resonates with its force. A strange, dazzling magic now courses through my half-mortal half-Sidhe body. But while my guards cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it and would rather the Unseelie court suffer than have it ruled over by me, a mongrel queen. My enemies grow in number every day. If only they knew what I am capable of. But come to that, if only I did too.

This is the world of Meredith Gentry, a twilight world of gods, shapeshifters and immortal souls, a world full of sensuality, wild magic, treacherous deceits and latent powers about to be unleashed...

Product Description

Amazon Review

The third novel in Laurell K Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series, Seduced by Moonlight continues the story of Merry Gentry, a mortal Faerie princess hiding in LA Her aunt, the immortal and insane Queen of Air and Darkness, has ordered her to compete with her cousin, Prince Cel, in making a baby. Whoever produces a child first wins the throne of the Unseelie Court. But Merry still hasn't conceived--and that's not her only problem. Unknown assassins seek her life; her magical powers are becoming potent and uncontrollable; and her sadistic aunt has just commanded her to return to Faerie.

Readers tired of mild modern fairy-tales about nice, polite elves may want to explore the Meredith Gentry series, which remembers that Faerie was originally a dark, dangerous realm of sex and violence. Hamilton's Queen of Air and Darkness is a vicious killer and torturer, and many of her fay drink blood or practice kinky sex (or both). Under royal orders to bed many males, Merry is far from averse; she and several lovers hit the bedroom on page eight of Seduced by Moonlight and don't emerge until page 175. There's no shortage of sex, but not as much as the page-count may indicate; the characters like to talk and sulk even more than they like to fornicate. The large cast and complicated backstory make this book the wrong starting point for the uninitiated; newcomers should begin with the first novel, A Kiss of Shadows. --Cynthia Ward --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"If you want something different, this is the book for you. Erotic, magical, violent, sensual and thrilling, it is an extraordinary tale of a Faerie in hiding as a private investigator in LA, and is quite simply delicious... Highly recommended" (Sarah Broadhurst Bookseller)

"Relentless high-paced trashiness - it's good fun" (SFX)

"Erotic, funny and horrific... probably not one for your granny" (Shivers)

"Very refreshing... Hamilton has an amazing imagination" (SF Site)

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicted to Laurell!! 20 Mar 2004
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
You know when you're becoming slowly addicted to an author when you buy their books sooner and sooner. You know what I mean - you find one in a second hand book store and really enjoy it. You buy a couple more in the series in a Buy One, Get One Free Offer; you buy the rests of the series in one go just 'cos it makes sense'; to buying the large paperback and then, oh no, you HAVE to buy the Hardback cos you can't wait any longer!!
I am addicted to Laurell.I bought this book because I am also addicted to Merry. And Darkness. And Frost. And Rhys (God, what I would give to meet a real life Rhys!!!) And it didn't disappoint. From the time I opened the first page, I literally fell into the world of the Sidhe - the rest of this world ceased to exist as I devoured the latest tale of Merry Gentry and her path to, well, who knows where?!
It was a stupendous read - lots of sex, lots of magic, amazing energy. it takes you another step further along the road of this magical realm, and leaves you begging for more.
If you haven't read the first two in this series, get them NOW. But I know that I will be buying the next Laurell K Hamilton as soon as it comes out here in the UK, and I congratulate Ms Hamilton on such an intensely pleasureable series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moonlight is magical. 31 May 2004
This is the third book in this series and I am already looking forward to the fourth. The plotting is superb and keeps the reader in page turning mode right up to the last. The only problem that I had with this book is that it left me wanting more and that is not a bad thing.
Even although this is a fantasy world Ms Hamilton makes the reader believe that it is real. Her characters are real people not cardboard cutouts and as a result we care about them and what happens to them.
I thought the Anita Blake series was good but the Meredith Gentry novels outshine them by a mile. Why is this? Perhaps because there is less angst and soul searching in the Gentry novels, whatever the reason, read and enjoy. It will undoubtedly add to your enjoyment/understanding of this character and her world to read the first two novels in the series, not only that but re-reading them is a delight too.
I have read the books four times and they are still fresh and entertaining. If you want an entertaining read that transports you to a different more magical world then I thoroughly recommend these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 30 Jan 2004
By A Customer
I liked this book more than Caress of Twilight. Unlike the first two books, there's no mystery or investigation in this book. The first half of the book is filled with new and regained powerful magic for Merry and her men in Los Angeles. The latter half of the book takes place at the Unseelie court and is full of ten new guards, two new goblins, politics, a duel, assassination attempts, more scary Andais, and a great ending. My favourite part of Laurell K. Hamilton's books is that the heroine, by being an honorable, protecting, courageous person, gets ahead in life. Merry's responsible, humble, sheltering nature turns more and more guards to care for her more than the Queen. I liked the ending in particular because it was very tender and shows Merry's old guards easing the new guards into the very different culture of guarding Merry, which the old guards seem grateful for as a reprieve from the Queen's tender care. The book heavily hints that the next books in the series will cover their visit to the Goblin Court and the Seelie Court, and Merry keeping her bargain with Sholto. I've read it 3 times in 2 days, and now I'm re-reading the entire series again. I can't wait for the next one. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT READ 4 Mar 2004
By A Customer
When I bought the first book in this series I instantly fell in love with it so I went straight out to buy the next one. I fell in love with that too but the problem was I've had to wait for over 8 months for this book!

Luckily the wait was worth it! This book takes us back instantly into the world of Meredith Gentry without too much of a struggle but you get into the book so well you end up feeling that it ends too soon! Most likely a clever plot by the publishers!

This book brings the mystery, suspence, back-stabbing politics and of course magic from the two previous books and makes a completely new story. We have Meredith once again sleeping with her guards in the hope to get pregnant but with an added twist to it this time! Also we have her returning to the Unseelie court which brings the reader plenty of information on court politics and the Queen herself!

This book in it's summary is a fantastic read with all the intensity from the previous books and with plenty new twists to keep the reader on their toes. Although you could read this book on its own and enjoy it you would probably benefit from buying the 2 previous books for background information and also just to enjoy. All there is left to say is BUY THIS BOOK AS IT'S AN EXCELLENT READ.
