    I can t decide what I think about the latest installment in the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K Hamilton Yes, I like the series Yes, I like Merry and Darkness and Rhys and Frost and Galen, etc The last couple of books have bothered me on some levels, mainly that they take place over the span of only about one day, and are over packed with intrigue, politics, alliances, sex recreational, procreational and or political not bad, just sort of a LOT of it for reasons I m not always clear I can t decide what I think about the latest installment in the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K Hamilton Yes, I like the series Yes, I like Merry and Darkness and Rhys and Frost and Galen, etc The last couple of books have bothered me on some levels, mainly that they take place over the span of only about one day, and are over packed with intrigue, politics, alliances, sex recreational, procreational and or political not bad, just sort of a LOT of it for reasons I m not always clear about , carnage, miracles, magic, salvation well you get the point It s often hard to track who is allied with whom, and whether the seemingly miraculous happening is a good thing or a bad thing This title starts by setting up what you assume will be the main conflict in the book, yet it disappears fairly early on Amazingly, NO sex till well after page 100 In some ways, this book almost felt like a novella compared to most of Hamilton s books The story moved, changed and resolved so quickly, and there weren t a lot of character developments I also wasn t satisfied by the major development at the end don t want to give it away but it seemed a bit of a cop out A resolution that, while interesting, seems to shoot down something we were supposed to be waiting impatiently for, and which was supposed to be of major political concern Seemed like Hamilton said, Well, can t decide what to do about that, so I guess I d say Good, but not thoroughly satisfying I hope the next book in the series is better

    I thought, What the hell Hamilton has sold enough books to fill a desiccated Lake Eerie, so I just had to pick one up, almost in spite of my own literary snobbishness I ve been wrong before The fourth Harry Potter movie was out before I decided to pick up Philosopher s Stone and I was pleasantly surprised at the journey the good Ms Rowling took me on I will tell you that I tried Twenty pages worth of trying The book read paper better used for wiping the asses of dysentery sufferers w I thought, What the hell Hamilton has sold enough books to fill a desiccated Lake Eerie, so I just had to pick one up, almost in spite of my own literary snobbishness I ve been wrong before The fourth Harry Potter movie was out before I decided to pick up Philosopher s Stone and I was pleasantly surprised at the journey the good Ms Rowling took me on I will tell you that I tried Twenty pages worth of trying The book read paper better used for wiping the asses of dysentery sufferers was a lesson in mediocrity on par with the profound literary masterpiece known as The Hunger Games The first page was tough and I wanted to stop, but I thought, No, Atreyu wouldn t quit now So I slugged on, and each page was worse than the previous one Lame exposition of situations and in an environment thinner than the wasted paper it was printed on.Here is Ms Hamilton s attempt at simile But his hair was uniquely his own, silver, like metal beaten into hair I reread this three times thinking I was missing some deeper meaning, refusing to believe that this line slipped passed the eyes of the authors many drafts, and an agent, and a line editor, and a story editor, and a copy editor, and a final read by all of the above Here are a fewthe white of his shirt was less white than his own skin There was no magic to it, just the force of their physicality The force of their physicality The men across the table gave the guards the glances men give when they see another man whom they are almost certain could take them physically without breaking a sweat Read that like you would a Shelley poem or Shakespeare So talentless, so very sad.Listen, writing a book is hard I get it No one deserves to have their art dismantled and mocked But there is no attempt, by the author, or by the publisher, at greatness here A book is so precious, so goddamn important, and this thing is printedwhy because of a story because she s sold books before Because, because, becaaaaaause, because of the wonderful things she does Bad books have always been written They shall always be written, but I guess I mconcerned with the impetus that compels so many people to pull 25 bucks out of their pocket and slam it on the counter gleefully for this trash LOOK, I say to the average reader There sits Picture of Dorian Gray, Bleak House, Pillars of the Earth, Drood, The Idiot, Dune, anything by Gene Wolfe pick up that instead, PLEASE It s even cheaper As a lover of books, it hurts my heart and my brain Just another rant Not like anybody reads these anyway

    Holy crap Now that s what I m talking about I ve been giving LKH s Merry Gentry books progressively lower ratings becausewell, my estimation of them has fallen greatly What started as a magnificent series with lots of potential and a keen awareness of Celtic mythology had fallen into 200 some pages of endless sex romps with multicolored men Until now.This book definitely turns all of that on its head, and actually furthers the plot something that LKH has avoided for at least several b Holy crap Now that s what I m talking about I ve been giving LKH s Merry Gentry books progressively lower ratings becausewell, my estimation of them has fallen greatly What started as a magnificent series with lots of potential and a keen awareness of Celtic mythology had fallen into 200 some pages of endless sex romps with multicolored men Until now.This book definitely turns all of that on its head, and actually furthers the plot something that LKH has avoided for at least several books now The climax at the end of this book no spoilers, but it takes place in Meav s dining room had my jaw on the floor In addition to the wonderful plot advancements, and spot on mythological references to explain a total plot shocker, the actual writing is great in this book, with several passages that I read multiple times just for their flow and poetry Hats off, LKH If this is any indication of where the series is going from here on out, I m glad I stayed on the rocky ride

    This is one of the best books in the Merry Gentry series I loved it The plot thickens with Merry awakening all sorts of new powers in both the seelie and unseelie courts There is of course HOT sex, but also a great plot as well Im am really impressed by this one and cant wait for the Swallowing Darkness WOW

    Ah, the next book in the Meredith Gentry series book 6 if you want to keep track This is a series that I read because I like reading about the Seelie and Unseelie courts I am not sure why else I read it The plot is complex and interwoven and the characters interesting Meredith herself is an interesting contrast of personality traits Like most of Laurell Hamilton s books I think I can best review this by breaking it down into the good, the bad, and the ugly.This series makes no secret abo Ah, the next book in the Meredith Gentry series book 6 if you want to keep track This is a series that I read because I like reading about the Seelie and Unseelie courts I am not sure why else I read it The plot is complex and interwoven and the characters interesting Meredith herself is an interesting contrast of personality traits Like most of Laurell Hamilton s books I think I can best review this by breaking it down into the good, the bad, and the ugly.This series makes no secret about devoting itself to sex Strangely this book was lacking in the numerous number of pages detailing sex scenes There were a measly two sex scenes no sex until around 200 pages into the bookI mean wow That s got to be a record There is a lot of talking about sex So onto the good, the bad, and the ugly.The Good The plot movesseriously the plot actually advances in this book notice I didn t say quickly A good portion of the 300 pages are devoted to plot We get to hear about Frost s past I love Frost and I loved hearing about his past Amazing fairy things continue to happen and amazing creatures are introduced The book focuses on 4 5 of Merry s men instead of having her sleep with a plethora of them The Red Cap goblins are back I love them.The Bad Continuous rants about how every kind of sex is acceptable take up loads of page space We get it, SM can be a good thing, multiple partners can be funnow let s move on Merry humoring her thousand year old boyfriends need for constant emotional support geez if I had to try and not to hurt the feelings of 20 guys at once I guess it would take timebut does it have to take up soooo much page space The Ugly Merry s guards seem to never be around to guard her when something extremely bad happenswhat it up with that This whole book, like the last two, spans a time frame of maybe a day Rumors are that Swallowing Darkness is not the end, we will continue to be tortured by this incredibly strung out story SPOILER START Much of the book is taken up preparing with you for a sex scene between Merry and the goblins but it doesn t lead much of anywhere SPOILER END Okay so, in general this book hadplot and less sex than I was actually expecting so that is a good thing It focusedon characters I like and less at throwing in a billion new men for Merry to have at it with All in all I wasn t disappointed I read a ton of paranormal genre books and these books are still very creative and reasonably well written compared to most of them I know it s easy to gripe about the lack of plot, etc etc I am guilty of that too still Hamilton is a good writer I mean how many other people have made erotica hit the New York Times bestseller list I ll read the next book because I am a sucker for the characters I am hoping the series doesn t drag on for too much longer though Seems to me the overall story could come to an end soon
