Bare with me here, haven’t actually written a review nor a recommendation for a book before. I just thought I’d share my favourite books with the wonderful people who work on & read the LAB showcase!
So here goes:
a kiss of shadows is book 1 in the ‘Merry Gentry’ series written by laurell k Hamilton ( @LKhamilton ). This book finds the fairie princess Meredith NicEssus hiding among the population of LA where she assumed the name Merry Gentry and works in a detective agency. There had been numerous attempts to kill her at the fairy courts. She is the niece of Andais the Queen of Air and Darkness, ruler of the Unseelie court.
She and her colleagues are investigating a serious breach of one of the laws which make it possible for the fairy to exist in the realms of the USA. During this investigation her secret is discovered and chaos, intrigues, attempted murder and serious magic follow.
I hope I did the book justice with this little synopsis, well it’s the first synopsis I have written.
The order in which the books in this series have been publish I added underneath. If you like a good story, wonderful characterisation, fantasy, magic, fairies and sex thrown in for good measure then you really should read this book series from start to finish!
