Hamilton (Divine Misdemeanors) continues the story of Princess Meredith NicEssus, aka Merry Gentry. This latest installment opens with the faerie princess giving birth to triplets. These hybrid babies have three fathers and an assortment of abilities. Merry must continue to navigate the machinations of her sociopathic Aunt Andais, queen of the Unseelie Court, and avoid the clutches of her equally crazy Uncle Taranis, ruler of the Seelie Court who thinks one of her babies is his. Charlotte Hill interprets the characters with a wide range of British accents.
VERDICT Recommended specifically for readers of dark fantasy who have an interest in this author and her lengthy series. ["[Hamilton's] ingeniously imaginative worldbuilding, erotically inventive plot, and dark lyrical narrative are still impressive," read the review of the Berkley pb, LJ 6/15/14.]
