“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.com, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
The weeks pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” is:
A Shiver of Light
A Meredith Gentry Novel
By Laurell K. Hamilton
06 . 03 . 14
Usually, I would post a synopsis of this book that is about to come out. However, since this was and is such an AMAZING series–I am not going to ruin it for anyone by posting about what will happen in this latest book. I will put the synopsis from the first up though!
I started reading this series in 2012, after the Borders Bookstore that I worked in closed and I ended up buying carts and carts of books at 90% off. I had been looking at this series for awhile, but hadn’t gotten to them. I started the first book, A Kiss of Shadows and could NOT put the series down. I had thought that it was over, until I stumbled across this one on Amazon last week. I am so excited. I really enjoyed Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series (more so in the beginning before it she went over the top with the sex scenes) and this series is just as good, possibly better (and shorter). While this series, like the Anita Blake series, is about the paranormal interacting with our modern day world, instead of vampires, werewolves, and zombies, the Meredith Gentry novels focus on Faerie and the fae. The writing is quick and witty, the action is tense, and the romance is swoon worthy. I can’t wait to read this book, and am probably going to re-read all the others to hold me over until A Shiver of Light is released.
A Kiss of Shadows
Meredith Gentry Novel 1
By Laurell K. Hamilton
01 . 18 . 2001
From the Back Cover:
Enter a thrilling, sensual world as threatening as it is beautiful, replete with the consuming passions of immortal beings once worshiped as gods or demons. Full of earthly pleasures and dazzling magic. A Kiss of Shadows will hold you under its hypnotic spell.
Meredith Gentry, princess of the high court of Faeries, is posing as a human in Los Angeles, working as a P.I. specializing in supernatural crime. But now the queen’s assassin has been dispatched to fetch her back–whether she likes it or not. Suddenly Meredith finds herself a pawn in her dreaded aunt’s plans. The job that awaits her: enjoy the constant company of the most beautiful immortal men in the world. The reward: the crown–and the opportunity to continue to live. The penalty of failure: death.
Other titles in this series include:
If you enjoy books about Faerie, like Julia Kagawa’s series, and urban fantasy like Keri Arthur, Karen Chance, Kim Harrison, and Devon Monk, you will love these books.
