In this long-awaited sequel to 2009's Divine Misdemeanors, homegrown American faerie princess (and former PI) Meredith (Merry) NicEssus gives birth to enchanted triplets. But she knows from bloody experience that life in the faerie court is far from fairy-tale perfect. The constant target of ruthless relatives, Merry, along with her consorts and the other faerie who chose exile in the human world, has to be ready for dangers coming her way.
VERDICT After a five-year hiatus, best-selling author Hamilton returns with a spellbinding series follow-up. Her ingeniously imaginative worldbuilding, erotically inventive plot, and dark lyrical narrative are still impressive and don't lessen now that Merry is a mom. Fans will rejoice as the author puts Merry and her merry men through their paces in and out of the bedroom. For new readers, the series, which has a strong R rating, should be read in order.
