Divine Misdemeanors (Meredith Gentry, #8) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Divine Misdemeanors (Meredith Gentry, #8)
Divine Misdemeanors by Laurell K. Hamilton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Following on the heels of the heart-stopping conclusion to Swallowing Darkness, Laurell K. Hamilton and Meredith Gentry are back!

Between dark faerie magic and the deepest desires lies the world of Meredith Gentry, princess, private eye, and powerful player in a game of supernatural sexual intrigue. The tension in this extraordinary saga continues to mount as Merry, pregnant with twins, refuses the throne of faerie and retreats with her bodyguards to Los Angeles in an attempt to protect the new life growing within her. Both the deadly destructive factions of the faerie courts -- as well as those who would worship her -- will be equally dangerous to her attempts to create a peaceful haven for her unborn children.

Filled with riveting twists, this new novel adds yet another unforgettable chapter to a story that is both epic and breathtaking.

My thoughts:
Divine Misdeameanours is the 8th installment in the Meredith Gentry series by the amazing Laurell K Hamilton. And what a book it was! I was begging for this book to come out, and I had no complaints. The only thing close to a complaint I had was the price of the Hardcover, but with my store discount how cold I not. I wasn't planning on waiting long to read this anyway.
What I like about this series is that unlike some other longer series they seem to drag out each book and I find myself not as interested as I once was, but with this series I love each book just the same. This time around Meredith is pregnant and her fellow lovers aren't happy about her still insisting on working, especially since her jobs aren't always easy or normal. And this case seems to be a bit nerve wrecking for both Merry and her lovers. Someone is killing the fey in the human world and stageing it to look like old fairy tales. It's gruesome and evil and merry feels she owes it to her fey race to catch this killer. Merry is her usual kick butt self, but has a softer side since carrying the twins. She has to learn to be more careful because her future had even more to protect.
Merry's usual men are a current role in this book, but I found even though Frost and Doyle to be a big part in the book, they don't have much face time with Merry. Rhy, Kitto and Royal seems to be becoming a bigger role in Merry's life as well. But even said that, Frost and Doyle are still Merry's number one(thank goodness!) but I just found Hamilton played the other characters up more in this book, which was good for a change. I liked the drama that was between Barinthus, Merry and the rest, and I loved the twists that lead to the revealing of the murderer. I found this story compelling and exciting. It has romance, mystery, fantasy and action, what's not to love? And after that being said, like most of Hamilton's books I rate this a 5 out of 5!
Now just another year wait for the next one.. He He!
