SECOND DATE: This is a book I read as an escape. I didn’t expect it to be perfect. I hoped there would be less sex (there was — still some smexy times, especially of the oral variety, since Merry just had some kids and all). I hoped there’d be more of a storyline (um…sort of. Taranis raped Merry and now believes that one of her kids is his. I don’t know why it takes so long to get a paternity test but they spend much of the book fussing about it and not getting it done. There’s a lot of talking and petting and description and not too much story beyond that and the fact that human soldiers are now worshipping Merry, even though this breaks the treaty the Fae have with the US government.). So, yeah. It wasn’t perfect. It certainly wasn’t as good as I’d hoped a five-years-in-the-making book would be but, you know, I still enjoyed it.
THIRD DATE: I have no idea if/when there’s going to be another Merry story. This book read more like a reintroduction to the world with a lot of set-up about the uber-powerful babies, Merry’s worshippers, Taranis’s increasingly psychotic behavior and threats of a coming war. It wasn’t perfect–more like hanging out with old friends that you haven’t seen in a while (powerful, weird and overly-sexed friends that are more fun with a couple of drinks under your belt but friends nonetheless).
