Merry Gentry, ex–private detective and full-time princess, is now the mother of triplets, a rarity in the high ranks of faerie. And not everyone is happy about it, including Taranis, King of Light and Illusion. He’s using the human courts to sue for visitation rights, claiming that one of the babies is his. To save herself and her children, Merry will use the most dangerous powers in all of faerie: a god of death, a warrior known as the Darkness, the Killing Frost, and a king of nightmares. They are her lovers, and her dearest loves, and they will face down the might of the high courts of faerie—while trying to keep the war from spreading to innocent humans in Los Angeles, who are in danger of becoming collateral damage.

Decent for rabid fans
Let me begin, with the fact that I have read all previous entries in the Merry Gentry series (which I love.) So, when I saw that there was another one as a fan I was super excited. So the question is should you buy the book? Absolutely, if you've read the other ones, if you haven't I would pass. Honestly, this book is really a rehash of previous story points, yes I know some things are furthered, but really not that far. It felt like an "in between" book. Catch you up, give you just enough to keep your interest, but really build for another book. Which I hope happens (fingers crossed.)
Not the best
This was definitely not her best work. Her work is slowly and steadily becoming worse and worse. This book has precious little actual story to it...and of course needless sex. Needless as in you can't have sex after having babies!! Seriously, it was a pitiful way of working that in.
I love LKH and the majority of her books. I usually can't wait for one to come out, and then I devote myself entirely to the story until the end. But I am so disappointed. The ending was horrible, totally anticlimactic. The ending contradicts the rules that have played out throughout the rest of the series. And it was quickly pieced together without much thought. Another great series circling the drain.
