A Kiss of Shadows (Merry Gentry #1)

Standard

Based on the cover, I should have expected there to be sex in this book. But I didn’t, so here is a nice fair warning. There is sex in this book and it is quite descriptive, so if that isn’t something you’re into I would suggest not reading this book. This is really a woman’s book in that respect.

We follow Merry Gentry a private eye in the human world and the missing princess in the Seelie courts. She’s on the run from her aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness while working as a private detective for Grey’s Detective agency. After she’s found by the Queen’s right-hand man Doyle. Merideth gets dragged back to the courts to discuss an plan that her aunt has, while also trying to stay alive. Though Merideth’s magic isn’t flashy, it’s a valuable aspect in the human world where she lives but it’s the only thing keeping her alive in the courts.

This is an interesting book. It’s a good first book, but I will admit it took me a little longer to get into than I’m used to. Some points are a little drawn on and other’s rushed through. This is the first book in this long series so I’m hoping that there is some good progress in the story structure. That won’t make me write off the store completely, however. I enjoy seeing how much the author’s writing style changes and progresses through a book series. The ideas of faerie courts and different types oUnseelieie is very interesting to me. Along with the urban, and relatable aspects, this book series seems like something right up my alley. I can’t wait to read the next book.

3/5
