A sexy, dark fantasy
on October 22, 2015
This story was unusually detailed and ridiculously over the top, and I absolutely loved it! The royal guard kept me captivated and Merry, the MC/sidhe Princess, is so very likeable. I started this book knowing how long a series it is, knowing that I'd be reading little else for many months to come if I enjoyed it, but guess what?--I ENJOYED IT!
This came off a recommendation from my sister. She tried explaining the storyline of this and the author's Anita Blake series to me, and I'm like WTF. Odd, but whatever. She told me I MUST read a Laurell K. Hamilton book. I then HAD TO read one just to know what the excitement was all about. Since I prefer faeries over vampires, I decided to give this one a try. I'm so glad I did!
Although it took me a few chapters to get into the wordiness, it grew on me and I learned to like it.
If you can handle heavy world building and a large volume of unusual, but magical, creatures/characters, this dark, steamy paranormal fantasy series is worth a start!
