You may know me best as Meredith Nic Essus, princess of faerie. Or perhaps as Merry Gentry, Los Angeles private eye. To protect my unborn children, I have turned my back on the crown, choosing exile in the human world with my beloved Frost and Darkness. Yet I cannot abandon my people. Someone is killing the fey, which has left the LAPD baffled and my guardsmen and me deeply disturbed. I thought I’d left the blood and politics behind in my own turbulent realm. But now I realize that evil knows no borders, and that nobody lives forever—even if they’re magical.
“Thrilling, fast-paced . . . may very well be the best Merry Gentry book so far.”—RT Book Reviews
“Sexually entwined politics, mesmerizing imagery, and wry humor.”—Booklist
“Full of steamy sex and wild magic.”—Publishers Weekly
