Hi hot cute girly (and guy) geeks of mine
A lick of Frost, the 6th book in the Merry Gentry series and what a good read it is indeed. The last book ended with the wild hunt being released and Merry and her guards running back to L.A. Taking with her as much guards as she could, the ones who where willing to go freely into exile with her from fearie. And this book picks up at a lawsuit. Her own uncle, King Tarantis, High king of the Seelie court pressed charges on 3 of her man, accusing them of raping a noble woman of his own court, and then things go wrong, very very wrong.
Tarantis tries to persuade Merry in to coming to him, apparently he wishes to bed her!!! His own niece!!! To get her pregnant and rule over all of fearie by all means necessary. Thankfully his attempt is stopped in time. Only her own Darkness and Abe are badly hurt and rushed to the hospital. But Merry had other issues to address. The promises to help the half sidhe/half goblin twins Ash and Holly getting there sidhe side powers. Before she gets the chance the red-caps interfere and the Goddess interferes, creating the home in L.A. where Merry and her men (sounds like a cheesy Disney movie) live, into fearie. Only this time Merry has to pay a price for so much power. The price of her dear Killing Frost.
She finds out she is pregnant and at last true heir to the Unseelie throne, but everything is to much. In order to clear her head, she leaves her men behind and is then kidnapped by her uncle who takes her away to the Seelie court, where she wakes up, naked in his bed, with a concussion. What happened en will she escape to see her beloved men???
Although I think this is one of the most disturbing books in the serie, because of her Uncle wants to have sex with Merry, this is also a book where much happens in a short time.
We learn that Tarantis can lie, even though the sidhe aren’t supposed to be able to lie. Merry finally gets pregnant and she doesn’t have to choose between her favorite men. We learn more about the back-ground story of Frost and that Doyle, her Darkness is becoming more and more human in his emotions and love for Merry. I love Doyle. Of all of Merry’s men I love him the most.
Each of her men has something special, but from the first book, where Doyle saves her and tries to heal her wounds, in the most sexy way possible. And the other books where you find out he loves her more, but also has the best interest in her. And he is willing to step aside so Merry can be Queen instead of following his own heart and being selfish, sigh, true romance.
All I can say this is a must read, but so are all Laurell’s books. I rate this one 7.5 out of 10. I will continue reading the rest of them and posting reviews about them. I know, my job sucks, hihi.
I hope you will love this one as much as I did, for the ones who read them, let me know what you think!
Love, your hot cute girly geek
