Good for her.This will be the last Meredith Gentry book I read.I wasnt offended by the rampant sex, I xpect that.

At least in the ‘ Merry ’ books all the erotica, orgies, BDSM etc is legitimized by Merry and her men being Sidhe ( fey) who re a very melanchol, sexual species.

Plus it was necessar to the storyline that Merry have as much sex with as many of her men as possible – since she was in a race to make an heir and be crowned Queen of the Unseelie ( fey) court.

A crime storyline in ‘ Divine ’ is boring, made more so by the ack of uber-villain Queen Andais.Queen Andais is to Merry what Belle Morte is to Anita; a seriously delicious, conniving mega-bitch.

She is an atrocious character; so evil that she ’ s fun to read – and her absence is keenly felt in ‘ Divine Misdemeanors ’ .In previous books ‘ Merry Gentry ’ did a ood job of exploring politics through mythological creatures – observing the tyranny of autocratic leaders, and the power plays that go on behind closed doors.

While hat was more case with her recent ‘ Anita ’ books, Hamilton ’ s ‘ Merry ’ series did have previously interesting plotlines ( with heavy does of erotica) but in ‘ Divine ’ Hamilton falls into the same traps.It ’ s stil pretty funny – Hamilton tries to inject her vapid sex scenes with legitimate character discussion, with hilariously bad results.

As though she feel that all the sex is getting in the ay of storyline, Hamilton tries to negotiate by combining the two. “ But what does all the politics have to do with the oral sex in the privacy of our own bedchamber? ” Exactly.To be honest, I was halfway through ‘ Divine Misdemeanors ’ and seriously considering giving the entire series the flick from here on in.

he cover also claims, " Mortals I once healed with magic are suddenly performing miracles " to which you get one dream sequence about four pages long.Hamilton may have meant for there to hav a storyline but she obviously forgot to include it in the published book.

I have enjoyed thi series, but one of the biggest problems has been when the plot drags.

I ha n't planning on waiting long to writ this anyway.What I like about th 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.

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 th memoi, which was good for a change.

And after that being said, like most of Hamilton 's books I rate this a 5 out of 5!

plot was somewhat tighter ( whodunit wise only) and It was fun to see ome of the characters from book 1 again.
