These books would be perfect if someone killed Taranis and Cel I love this book I love this series This is the 6th book in the Meredith Gentry series This was yet another book that I just couldn t put down I can t get enough of Merry Gentry s world Love it Better than the Anita Blake series Love the play on Celtic lore the love story the push for non christian perspectives Absolutely adore Dole Laurell finally got a powerful man ight no breaking this one down into fluff like she did with her vampire hero in the Blake series Highly No Limits (Brutal Master recommended for anyone who enjoys tales of the Faery Courts sidhe intrigue and copious sex Holy crap Now that s what I m talking about I ve been giving LKH s Merry Gentry books progressively loweratings 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 Liar, Liar romps with multicolored men Until nowThis book definitely turns all of that on its head and actually furthers the plotsomething 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 diningoom had my jaw on the floor In addition to the wonderful plot advancements and spot on mythological Essays One references to expla.
