Merry Gentry, a member of the Faerie royal bloodline, has been in hiding for the past three years. Now working as a Private Investigator in Los Angeles specializing in supernatural crime, she is drawn back into the Royal Court and all the dangers she tried escape.
Laurell Hamilton has done it again! This is a great book with intriguing characters and great action. Merry Gentry's world is like our world except that Faeries and Goblins still exist in the world and through political alliances have made a home in America.
In several ways, the Merry Gentry character is similar to another of Laurell Hamilton's characters, Anita Blake. Both are attractive, petite, have supernatural powers and are tough as nails.
A Kiss of Shadows is a great story, hopefully the start of a great series, full of mystery, intrigue, sex, magic, great characters and suspense.
