  • 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 abo [...]


  • I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for Meredith to get pregnant already and for there to be some forward movement of plot in these books. Also, I was getting tired of the strung together scenes of sexw magic. sexme more new magic.This book really toned down on the sex, thank goodness. And, to be fair, the plot did inch forward infinitesimally. But this book was quite boring. It was a bunch of mirror conversations. First Merry talks to Taranis is the mirror for eleventy-billion pages. Th [...]


  • 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 [...]


  • Yay, finally! I can give a book in this series 4 stars!Yup, this one was better than the others. I absolutely adored it!



  • For me this series gets better with each book. I am always expecting the new love twist, the new magic, some new development. But this one, broke my heart.I tend to get sucked into the books that I read that I truly love and enjoy I feel the emotions and develop my relationships with the characters.Through out this series I have chosen my favoritesDoyle, Rhys, Frost, Galen and Kitto. I care a lot for the others, but these five are my favorites.So much happens in this book, so many realizations, [...]


  • 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*mething that LKH has avoided for at least several books now [...]


  • 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 right, no breaking this one down into fluff like she did with her vampire hero in the Blake series. Highly recommended [...]


  • 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!!!


  • pardon if this becomes a gushing review but I am not sorry so here we go.This is by far one of my favorites of this series, Tretchory is a foot. I always wanted to say that. *ahem* So much has happened in this book so many things and it wasn't all happy. There is so much to go through so I am going to start. Merry's guards were accused of rape of a noble woman, and they had to go see the lawyers. From here is when hell in the form of beautiful light broke down on them. Tarnis want Merry to be hi [...]


  • 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 [...]


  • I have followed the Princess Meredith series for awhile, but realized that I had missed a couple of installments. Frost is the princess's number two guard, after Darkness. Meredith struggles with her feelings of favoritism among her guards, but she is very honest about it. In A Lick of Frost she is once again in a fight for her life. She has repeatedly been targeted as a key member of Faerie society -by both factions, the Seelie and the Unseelie. She is also half mortal and this does not bode we [...]


  • Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal RomanceI think this is the first Merry Gentry novel that focuses significant time on plot rather then sex! In fact, I don't think sex happens until after page 200 (which is pretty amazing, given I guess-ta-mate that the previous book had about 20 pages that _weren't_ sex). Events happen, evil plotting occurs! It isn't resolved, but the book reminded me of why I used to really like Laurell Hamilton's work. We get more actions from the King of the Seelie court! Poli [...]


  • I want it now!!!!!!!!!!!! ahhh!!! oh I can't wait. This is going to be awesome. Hey if anybody wants to discuss anything about Laurell K Hamilton's two series this one and the Anita Blake one check out Ladies who Love Laurell in the Group section. (we are under books and Literature then Romance) We got a discussion going about who's going to be Merry's babies daddy, so stop bye and throw in your two cents. Personall I thinkDOYLE FOR KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • This book is hard to rate for me. Less than four, more than three maybe a 3.85? The book starts off maybe a little slow, but then it warps into high speed with a LOT of information thrown at you. I am still trying to sort this all out so this review may be more of that, less than an actual review. Merry and her guards are back in L.A. and are living in Maeve Reed's star Hollywood home. They are around 20 people or so and at this point the house itself is becoming a little small for everyone. Mor [...]


  • **Mini Spoiler**This is my absolute favorite scene from the book:Frost broke my heart when he was talking of the first woman he loved and how he would never stop loving Meredith:"I watched her fade, but I loved her always. Because it was her love that made me real, Merry. Not faerie, not wild magic, but the magic of love. I thought I was giving up what life I had to save Rose, but the consort had asked if I would give up everything I was, and I did. I became what she needed me to be. When I real [...]


  • I was really reluctant to read the Meredith Gentry books originally. I was so in love with the Anita Blake series that I just didn't want to read the other series for fear that it would be too Science Fictiony or *gulp* bad.Now I am hooked and the only book I have kept of the Laurell K Hamilton books is this one. I sold all my other ones. So I guess that speaks of my enjoyment of this series. And yes - I agree with the other reviewers that this book stood out and was right up there with the firs [...]


  • The Good: Taranis has been discussed at length many times in the previous books, but we finally get to see him as a major character in A Lick of Frost. Everything mentioned before pales in comparison to the reality of what Taranis is capable of. Things get dark and gritty quickly and Hamilton is the queen of dark and gritty. Some very powerful, emotional, devastating stuff goes on here with Taranis and beyond. Merry experiences bitter joy and deep loss, all in the confines of needed plot progres [...]


  • Thank goodnessa return to plot. After slogging through two short books of what amounted to a ridiculous amount of sex and very little storyline, I was getting ready to give up on the Merry Gentry series. I was disappointed at first glance by the length of the book, thinking that 181 pages was not nearly enough to get the storyline going again. I am thrilled to be proven wrong. Without spoiling the story, events are finally turning again. It feels like Merry has more control over her life and the [...]


  • Short review for this one. I love the series, but I am pissed at LKH. As with Anita Blake she ascribes to the "more is more" school of logic when it comes to sexual partners. I have to say it, Merry having 6 baby daddies is just STUPID. First of all - 4 would have been more than enough for twins! I mean come on. Then the fact that she and Galen have already made their peace with not being together, but he is a baby daddy? He gets that she loves Frost and Darkness more and that he is not politica [...]


  • I had planned to give up on Hamilton in general, but picked this up on a whim at the library. It was a pleasant surprise to learn that it actually had a plot, and one that didn't just involve Merry making out with everything in sight.It was such an improvement that I almost rated it higher, but I still wouldn't call it a good book. The action packed ending was a pleasant surprise, but other parts really dragged. Merry's long relationship talks and the details of juggling her guards have become t [...]


  • This is book 6 in Hamilton's series about Merry. I have enjoyed the entire series. However, as the fifth book seemed to have very little plot and lots of sex, this sixth book has only a few sex sceens and the plot moves along at a rapid pace. I felt like the book could have been a little longer and included something about what happened when she and her men first return back to Los Angels. I only say this because something happens then that turns out to be vital to the end plot, and it would hav [...]


  • the writing seems to be getting back to what it was. Picking up on the story arc from the previous books, Merry is still trying to get pregnant to get the throne of the Unseelie; to save it from her insane Aunt and cousin. The plot moves far in this book, although I wished it was longer. I won't say why, I wouldn't want to spoil it for those who havent read it yet, but the narrative has moved far. The biggest suprise of all though: there are only two well written sex scenes in this book. LKH see [...]


  • Book: A Lick of Frost (Merry Gentry #6)Author: Laurell K. HamiltonPublication Date: 10/23/2007Reviewed by: Tammy Payne- Book Nook Nuts My Rating: 5 Stars REVIEW Meredith’s crazy uncle King Taranis has truly lost what sense he had. He has gone to the human courts accusing three of Merrys men of rape. I think of all the books in this series so far this one tore at my heart. I love Frost and Darkness. Merry has no clue that her two greatest loves have made a deal after both had a dream. Many thin [...]


  • This book has been bittersweet for me. Let me start by saying Frost is and will always be my favourite, My Darkness and Rhys at a close second. When I saw his name in the title, I was so looking forward to this book! Hamilton has Frost delivering in the swoon department, but I craved more of him!!! Just more!Before the reader has time to digest Frost's admissions, Rhys comes in and steals the limelight. Hot damn! (P.S. I pretend that Rhys is tall, like the others. Being 5'9" myself, a man at 5'6 [...]


  • I am not exactly sure why I keep reading this series--besides of the sex I mean. Pure stubbornness, most likely. I just want to see what happens next. The storyline is pretty far fetched, but I still buy into it more than into the magic described in Stolen (see my previous review). Also my imagination gets a great workout, trying to picture the outlandish looks of all of Merry's bed companions.


  • This book killed me. I was slightly horrified by the ending and it definitely is a turning point for the whole series. Now I have to wait to find out what happens! Adult content throughout this book.


  • A book devoted to Frost who has the largest chip on his shoulder. I like him still, regardless of his prima donna jealous ways. LKH is definitely getting kinkier and I liked it. My favourite one since the first. I hope it gets better from here. I do feel as though I'm still being strung along.


  • No spoilers, but I will say that she did get away from the smut-a-palooza that marred her last crop of books. We got to page 159 without there being any sex at all. This was really all plot. We're starting to go back to what made the series so addicting to begin with.
