    A confession When I tell you thatI m doing something really interesting and intellectual reading theory, writing something new, learning to cook Indian food , I m probably lying Most of time What I am actually doing is reading one of these horrible books and eating pretzels, periodically cajoling Mark into bringing me drinks This book, and the other five books in the series, are HORRIBLE Really, really bad I love them.Here s the story so far Fabulous faerie princess Merry, despite being fabulous and awesome and great and having the biggest boobs in the kingdom not a joke , is hated by lots of other nasty faeries Despite this key fact, her aunt, the Dark Queen of Faeries, says that she, Merry, can be queen if she can get pregnant Merry is then given the exclusive right to have lots and lots and lots of unprotected, hot and dirty magical sex with the formerly celibate royal guard...

    Meh.There are good and bad sides to being a very thorough and articulate writer The good side is how very detailed the fictional creatures are It is easy to get a good mental image on all of the amazing fae creatures that are described in the books And, they are really intriguing.But, the bad side is how detailed inconsequential things can be written Such as a simple conversation that lasts for page after page And, that s what happens here Merry and her men talk with some guards outside a house, just trying to gain entry for so many pages in this book that it could be its own novel Merry Longtalking s Incredible Journey into the House And, that is just one example of the page filling that went on and on and on and on and oh, you get the point.On the whole, not a lot happened in this book It feels like a filler book where the author desperately tried to draw things out by filling the pages with endless descriptions or conversations But, having a fil...

    I enjoyed this a little less than the first one The ending was pretty fantastic though

    A Caress of Twilightby Laurell K HamiltonBallantine, 326 pages, hardback, 2002I have to confess that, the last time I tried to read one of Ms Hamilton s many novels, I got about halfway through and then threw it across the room The book in question was called Narcissus in Chains, and was the umpteenth volume featuring Ms Hamilton s series heroine Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter I had fought my way through about two hundred pages of badly written soft porn I have no aversion at all to well written soft porn and had come to a section where various of the loathsome characters were discussing the genital endowment of a particular historical vampire This vampire, we were told salivatingly, had been the possessor of a penis so doughty that his erection was a full six inches thick.That s right thick Not six inches long Not even six inches in circumference But thick.This reviewer did not, as might have so many other men, rush straight to the nearest mirror to gaze at and weep over his own deficiencies He did not even accidentally turn the ruler to the centimetre side while frantically checking Instead he threw the book across the room and then, remembering the principles of academic rigour, asked a couple of congenital experts on matters penile if such a weapon might be of any practicable use other than being waved around proudly to ...

    Obviously, I disliked the first one enough that I had to immediately read the second These are light, fluffy, and fun reads, albeit full of dark subject matter.

    Quit drawing out the story Merry Gentry is Princess of the Unseelie Court and co heir to the throne if she can get pregnant Which she and her harem of interchangeable men are trying very hard to accomplish.One fine day at the Detective Agency that Merry works despite being royalty that attracts paparazzi easier than a bald Britney Spears , a man enters After lots of hemming and hawing a standard LKH practice to pad out the story and make her MC look supa amazing Merry finds out the guy is representing Maeve Reeds, a Faerie super star who was banished from the courts 100 years ago.One chapter is dedicated to Merry and her men driving to Maeve s house I would have thought that by going to her house, they had already decided to talk to her, but what do I know Two chapters are dedicated to Merry and her men arguing with Maeve s bodyguards to be let in.One chapter is dedicated to Merry and her men entering the house, meeting Maeve, who runs off to the backyard.Another couple of chapters pass before Merry finally nails Maeve to the floor figuratively , and they FINALLY talk about the whole point of Maeve s request What is this request Maeve wants children problem is, her husband is dying Also, Maeve believes the Seelie infertility is due to King Taranis own infertility It was dark by the time we arrived back to my apartment Well, after how long it took to freakin get...

    Second book still trashy bordering on decadent, still packed with flowery prose, still moving at a snails pace I think the whole book moved ahead about five days.Some of it I liked Hamilton comes up with some beautiful descriptions, and the confrontations can be pretty satisfying Meredith s mirror argument with her bitch of a mother is a great example But good God, things can get tedious In the first book I thought it was the endless descriptions that were slowing things down We ve still got that here, but now it s the arguments Everybody has to constantly DEBATE things Meet a new person, get into an argument Find some new information, get into an argument It s as if Hamilton has exactly one tool for plot development, and that s to have the characters argue until the reader understands what s happening and wishes everyone would move the heck on.The book also could have used a good editor to point out some overused phrases Hamilton falls in love with the accusation..and well you know it around the middle of the book, and uses about three times a chapter...

    Faerie Tales Finally Get RealBefore I get serious, I must say that Doyle would make the best consort for Meredith He knows the Unsidhe Court better than anyone, and is intelligent enough to know when to use his power and when to use diplomacy Frost is too much like the nickname bestowed upon him by Andais Rhys still has issues with Goblins, and Galen, while cute, would be nothing than a boy toy And there s something rather cool about a dark skinned fae character Most writers save Emma Bull , tend to stick closely with the typical Celtic looking faerie folk.I have to admit, Merry was hard to take in the first book, especially for those of us used to the kick butt attitude of Ms Hamilton s Anita Blake However, Meredith has come into her own, and she is definitely not one to be tread upon lightly, as a few of her encounters with The Queen of Air and Darkness show.What I really love about this series is that the fae are NOT these cute little people who help humans in need In fact, these fae are rather dismissive and in some cases hostile to mankind These fae are far closer literature wise than the Disney fied versions that we re familiar with Some of their actions in the book definitely make one squirm Even Doyle and Frost, as close to heroes as a character can be, remind the reader in some startling ways not to use human benchmarks to judge their actions.And yes, there is sex in the book but it does not detract from the gist of the story After all, Merry does need to get a...

    While this wasn t quite as good as the first book, I still enjoyed it I really don t get why people write about these books as though they are porn There really isn t hardly any blatant sex at all Yes, Merry has several men in her life, as she was forced to choose several men in order to conceive a child and inherit the Unseelie throne Pretty much, she does this or dies The sex mainly happens off page I guess the main deal for people must be the fact that she is in relationships with several men It isn t just mindless screwing, there is a point to it, and Merry genuinely has feelings for them.I don t get the fuss, personally I just think it s an entertaining series about the fae si...
