A Caress of Twilight follows Merry Gentry and her gaggle of hunky man meat through another combination of twisted sidhe court politics and supernatural detective adventure.
Yes, Merry gets plenty of action from her sexy, brooding, conflicted boy toys. Grand Central Station thanks to the fey ability to use any normal mirror as a communication device without announcing themselves.
Merry is learning that tough decisions are required of an aspiring candidate for the Unseelie Court throne. We also learn more about Merry, her past, and the depth of her powers, setting her up to be a formidable queen indeed.
Ok, book 2 in the Merry Gentry series! I still am a little hesitant with this series, just because I see some seriously mixed reviews. Between my Goodreads friends, real-life friends, and other bloggers That being said I really did like the second book. I felt more comfortable in A Caress of Twilight than I did in A Kiss of Shadows, mostly because the main characters we've finally met and gotten to know more as well as the life of being a sidhe.
I've read fantasy books before that revolve around the fae mostly Karen Marie Moning's Fever series , so I understood most of it. But the first book did have a lot of important information that I probably didn't pay enough attention to, but now I understand a whole lot more after reading this book.
She is having her fun romps on the sacks with all so far except Doyle and Galen Though, in this book we finally get to the bottom of what's going on with Galen as well as some unexpected turn of events in the sack for our little Miss. Merry and the boys have had to take a step back from the PI business because of the bad stuff going down with the Nameless and some crazy group deaths. Lots of time for plotting and planning without having to go into work for now, huh?!
Or maybe, just some extra time for some lovin LOL We still have our little humor bits here and there, and we even having feelings of love floating in the air.
Merry is definitely a very special heroine. She is very educated and knowledgeable about the faerie life and those that live in it. I love her brain and her personality! Dare I think I like her more than Anita Blake Great book. Hamilton did another great job! Merry is back working for the Grey Detective Agency in L. Her one bedroom apartment is too small for the five guards plus Kitto, the small snake goblin she's taken on for six months in order to have the goblins as allies.
It's difficult to find a place they can afford for so many people. Maeve Reed, a prominent Hollywood actress for fifty years and a former goddess of the Seelie Court, wants a favor from Merry, which she'll only agree to if Maeve will share the secret to why she was banished, and the reason could rock the balance of power.
Politics and the mystery of what has been unleashed by the sidhe and how to stop it take up the majority of this second story. Merry has to negotiate with the demi-fey, a number of members from the Seelie Court as well as her aunt. Each of the different courts and types of fey has their own cultures and rules. And because she's trying to get pregnant and keep all of the guards--who'd been forced to be celibate under their queen--happy, sex is a common activity. Sex with Doyle for the first time is especially eventful.
Action, humor, mystery, politics and sex round out this story that fit a number of genres. We learn more about the guards and the world of the fey. A great job at character and world building. Merry is fully back in the mix of faerie even as she is most definitely outside of it.
She and her guards have returned to LA and are trying to make the best of that situation. For some of them, like Rhys and Galen, the outside world isn't new because they've experienced it before, but for others like Doyle and Frost, well, the modern world is full of surprises. I love the way that the characters develop in this series almost as much as I love the story line itself.
These amazing sidhe warriors are infallible and have fears like the rest of us. It is fascinating to see that play out amidst the modern streets of LA. In this book, we meet Maeve Reed and we start to see a bit more of the dirt under the King of Light and Illusion's rug.
There are parts of this book that seem inconsequential now that become hugely important later which is something I love about Hamilton's writing overall. There are terrors even the sidhe fear, and we meet some of those in this story, but for me, the bigger story is the characters and how they interact and how they come into themselves as the tale progresses.

A Caress of Twilight
She is Princess Meredith and she is heir to a throne - IF she can stay alive long enough to claim it. Unlike most of her kind, Merry is part human and all too mortal, as her cousin and arch rival knows only too well. For a deadly game is being played in the Faerie court and whoever produces an heir first wears the crown. But as she auditions her royal guard - illustrious warriors equally at home with gun and blade or spell - for the role of future king and father of her child, Merry is somewhat distracted from her career as a private investigator.
