I have loved this series but this book was a bit of a downer for me and I don't think I'll be getting the next one. There's lots of rambling and undoing of previous things. More panic about Merry's mortality spreading although in the last few books she was less mortal and her opponents in several duels survived mortal wounds. There's lots of emotional baggage and therapy talk which I thought was more Anita Blake than Merry Gentry, the lack of pyschoanalysing was one of the reasons I liked this series. But almost nothing happened in this book, perhaps if the main events had been condensed into a novella I would have liked it better. But I just couldn't bring myself to care about anything that happened. It was too random and very cliche.

My recommendation, if you've not read this series go back to the beginning and read the first one. If you have read all the other books, well, I'd say save your money and find a new series as I wish I had done. I believe this one is flailing beyond rescue.

All the same, happy reading.

As fans of the series know, this book has been a long time coming. Many people, myself included, worried that the series had been abandoned to writers block and wouldn't be finished. Considering the 5 year wait, I think fans are going to be incredibly disappointed. I know I was. I think after this installment I may just leave the series altogether.

I quickly grew tired of how the author couldn't be bothered to come up with a plot, and so has filled the book with sex, the last couple of pages of the book offer some explanation, but this was totally ridiculous. The "plot" is so incredibly rubbish, and you have to squint to find it...and maybe use a magnifying glass.

Merry spends the entire time talking about all of her husbands...gives birth to triplets...but you still don't find out who fathered them. At all. There's a death that's gonna hardcore piss people off. The plot pacing/timing/flow was all wrong. I mean, 5 years waiting for this? What a joke.

The book tried to take you on an emotional journey or whatever, but I pretty much felt nothing except annoyance and boredom the whole way through. The book didn't inspire any of the emotions the author was probably going for. Not to mention it falls in to the category of "so predictable it hurts".

Considering the genre this falls in to and the whole fae thing, it says a hell of a lot when I turn around and say that this entire book is unrealistic. Don't get me started on the babies. Just don't.

I was so bored by this book I took any excuse to put it down. Any excuse. Nothing happens, as I said, there's no plot. It is over 300 pages of nothing. Everything happens and is wrapped up within a couple of pages. I'm seriously not joking.

Why did I bother wasting my time and money on this worthless trash? This is the same bland tripe she has been spewing out for years. Why bother?Hamilton is obviously a narcissist too wrapped up in herself to truly create anything new or innovative. If you have read one of these you have read all of them. Although I did enjoy the first three books. There is nothing new or interesting, we get the same repeatedly rehashed phrases that make me cringe. To be honest I skimmed through useless swathes of s*** just to get to the end of this pointless masturbation exercise in order to feel like I spent my hard earned money on something worthwhile instead of just deleting it fifty pages in. This book, like so many of her others, could have easily been reduced to fifty pages. Therefore it must be the money the author is focussing on. Extremely disappointed and will not be reading anything from her again as she is undeserving of anymore of my time and money.

I have recommended Laurel K. Hamilton to hundreds and hundreds od readers - I work in the right place to do so.
I fell in love with this series even more than I fell in love with Anita Blake's and always enjoyed the constant twists and turns and loved the shocks of destiny that it used to present us with.
Yes, used to present us with...! I am so very sorry that the author has written this book. It ruins the series in so many ways it should be considered a crime to the genre!

No-jokes:
-this is a hardback with 372 pages;
-there is only one thing that happens in the whole book that we did not know about already;
-the book is a waste of time with no plot - we expected that a pregnant woman at some point will eventually give birth so that can not be called a plot;
-where I have read previous books in a matter of hours as I couldn't put them down it took me a whole week with this one and if I could get the time back somehow I would;

Story line no-jokes:
-we loved the nice little shocks and when Doyle and Frost announced their love for each other it was great. More and more people continue doing that - and very boringly keep talking about the fact that it's brotherly love or just keep staring in each other's eyes... and nothing else;
-after we all thought that the boring mortality issue was left behind and in previous books was kind of hinted that it's not an issue any more, somehow the talk is back again - just talk as usual and more and more talk. Fascination with the immortal is kind of killed off if they are mortal, isn't it? We know everything about mortality - who wants to hear some more? Oh, yes, I don't need a book for that - I can just put the news on...
