    Do not attempt unless you are proficient at reading while rolling your eyes continuously. This suffers from LKH's habitual lack of editing, and the only thing you can be sure will be consistent throughout are the descriptions of what everyone is wearing and what their eyes and hair and skin look like. These will be re-described for you every time anyone walks into the room, regardless of how many times they have walked into the room previously in this book. I do have to give LKH props for taking [...]

    I can honestly say that this is my favorite series, I love it! What really dampens my mood though is that LKH is sitting on her butt not writing this 9th book She has 20-something Anite Blake novels and another one on the way! After Anita killed the mother of all darkness, I honestly thought the series could have ended. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the books after that and would never stop reading the Anita books that come out but Merry needs to have this book come out. If you read LKH's blog, [...]

    If Laurell Hamilton ever again tries to tell someone she isn't writing romance, here's your proof that she is.Exhibit A is what the Anita Blake series has declined into; Exhibit B is right here. This is infinitely worse than any K-Drama or something on Telemundo. Why? BECAUSE ALMOST NOTHING EVER HAPPENS! NOTHING!Swear to fucking Chthulu, practically nothing fraggin' happens for almost four hundred fucking pages! I have to say almost nothing because there are all of two important events that take [...]

    ***Update 06/12/14: I can't believe I waited 5 years for this. A Shiver of Light read like a first draft. Although I suppose that's only to be expected since it was. LKH didn't finish writing it until the end of February. It seemed like 90% of the novel was needless descriptions, repeated phrases, and long conversations that went nowhere or were about things which were obvious. Plus, the events which were really interesting happened offscreen and the reader was just told about it. The childbirth [...]

    SHAKING AND CRYING ( A Merry Gentry Hysteria Novel)It's been five years since the last book published and I was so excited unfortunately it was not worth the wait. I don't understand how she can have so many good storylines ideas and instead of developing them she fills the entire book on stupid stupid dialogue. I don't want to hear about money problems they don't solve, what the men look like. There's been six books before this one we know what the men look like give a brief description move on [...]

    Is this book for real? That is a legit question. I can't believe this was published.Apparently Merry and Anita Blake are the same person now, which is really just an extension of Laurell. The characters (Merry and Anita) are just as pretentious, arrogant, and condescending as Laurell. Which makes them completely unlikable at this point.If you took out all of the repetitive descriptions, and baiting, instigating, pointless conversations from this book you would be left with about 30 pages. 24 of [...]

    So, Shiver of Light has finally been released and I am proud to review it for the readers. As you all know, previously the king of the Seelie Court had raped Merry while she was pregnant while all her lovers had been kept safe and the queen of the Unseelie Court had gone insane, torturing everyone after the death of her son at Merry's hands. Well, this book picks up right where that one left off. It is a delight and a tragedy all wrapped into one. This book has all you'd expect from aLaurell K. [...]

    2 - 2.5 ★'sThis book is all about the babiesMerry's babies and who else's? A better question probably would be, who isn't a father? There's usually two types of readers of LKHeither you love her or you don't. Sadly, I think I'm falling into the second category especially since it took me four day to read this book and every second was a struggle. :( I had hoped that this series would continue to be written in the same "voice" as before and not be "Anitasized" but unfortunately that's not the c [...]

    1.5 starsI used to love LKH's writing. I read and reread her early books. Sadly, I gave up on Anita a few issues ago, she just can't stop humping everything/one and has so little story to go with it I got bored and somewhat grossed out. Merry was my last hope she has the Fae and their courts, several very steamy men, and some very complicated family issues. Then she started sexing everyone to give them power, "MORE POWER" and she started to sound just like a very sexed Anita.~ Sigh ~ Really, is [...]

    I really hoped that I could at least respect this book. Nope. I didn't. Yet, I can't bring myself to give an LKH book the one star this deserves.Normally, I can find good points in even the very bad, but I can't do that this time. It's not often an author can make you hate the characters, the plot, and the writing itself of a whole series with just one work, but this crap is one good hammer swing from doing just that.I finished this novel only five minutes ago and I generally try to wait a full [...]

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest reviewI hadn't realized just how much I missed these characters until they were finally back. This book was an unexpected gift. I had thought the series was over, left to just sort of die out with unanswered questions, and then I saw that book #9 was actually going to be released. When I got asked to read for review I immediately jumped in. There was a lot to love in this book Some incredibly sweet mome [...]

    2.5 starsSee this review and others like it at Badass Book Reviews!Laurell K. Hamilton is a very divisive author -- people either love her or hate her. Though I have given up on her Anita Blake books, I've always enjoyed the Merry Gentry series. Unfortunately, this book was slow and very little happened. Plus, you see that summary up there? Well, it is a lie! Let's break it down, shall we? Warning: From here on out, there might be slight spoilers."Now nobles of both courts of faerie are coming t [...]

    After a 5 year wait, the book should have been way better than what we got. To make a long story short, I feel as though this book was incredibly predictable and missed a lot of emotional notes that it was obviously trying to hit.I do have some questions and concerns:(view spoiler)[Merry is being worshiped. Soldiers are worshiping her. This automatically breaks the treaty that the fae made with Jefferson because not only are they praying to her and worshiping her as a goddess, but they’re goin [...]

    I am so disappointed in this book, and think that I expected 5 years! Meredith is pregnant, then gave birth to triplets, then she talks about all the the various husbands, then move to re-present to us all the Sidhe who have gone to live with her in the house of Maeve; most of the time the princess complains that she can not have sex because she had a natural birth, and if on the one hand this has saved us a series of threesomes, we cannot be saved from a series of fellatio. The old problem of M [...]

    I don't know why I bother with Ms. Hamiltons books anymore. This one was a collection of angst, angst, pregnancy hormones, crying, more angst, a rapey uncle, more angst, lovey dovey I love you so, but I'm not in love with you, more angst, blablabla angst, blablabla about some holy relic (with EVERY damn appearance of one of "her soldiers" the whole explanation enchilada again), angst, blabla, pouf one of her men is dead, her uncle tried to rape her (in a dream) again, three pages later the book [...]

    A shiver of light. I can describe the plot easily enough.Babies. Cry. Feel doom about nothing in particular. cry. oral sex. brief moments of happiness. Babies. Repeated self reflection with various members of the cast that could easily be swapped between Merry and Blake books. Overuse of the same words, descriptions and thoughts. More oral sex. Cry a bit more. last 10% of the book something actually happens. Cry again and find an easy resolution without any effort from the cast. The end. I'd bee [...]

    Not with a bang but a fizzle:Not with a bang, but a fizzle. Not with a bang. But with a fizzle. A fizzle instead of a bang. The sound of the fizzle strikes harder than the bang ever could.Repetitive? Annoyingly so? Yeah. That could be the crux of "A Shiver of Light." Repetitive inane blather about shit that has already happened or needs to but certainly won't happen in this book! The most important points and scenes happen off screen (but don't worry your pretty head, those types of things are f [...]

    I wish I would've saved my money and passed on this book. I gave up on the Anita Blake series ages ago but still had hopes for Merry Gentry. Just like the the Blake series, Hamilton WASTES paper and time having the characters discuss ad nauseum the minutiae of seelie/unseelie culture that does NOTHING to further the storyline. It's so mind numbingly boring that I flip through the book looking for the plot and some actionANY actionying to understand useless random pointless scenes. All the other [...]

    Julia's Book Haven
    Ok so loved it, but it is staying at 4 stars until it is confirmed that there is going to be another book cause if it ends here I will cut someone. The author is super vague about if there will be more for some reason, only stating if the stories keep coming she'll keep writing. Which is awesome, but I'd like maybe a hint of if or when the next one will be. So until I know for sure there will be more I will keep it at 4 and then bump it up when I do :P Also she better fix what she did in this on [...]

    After a looong wait the book is finally here and not much really happens.The babies are born, Merry can't have sex for six weeks but the author still manages to fill page after page with repetitive alternative sexytimes. The descriptions are also repetitive in the extreme. And all the talking! I love LKH's stories and the world she has created. That said, I wish a good editor would get a hold of her and slash all the overblown prose and make her get back to her great action story telling. The ac [...]

    I can honestly say, I've never been more disappointed in reading a supposed 'final' book in a series. (view spoiler)[In the beginning of the book, I was cheering because they were finally plotting to take down Taranis, who in all honesty, needed to be taken out. I was a bit miffed that PART of the blurb was a HUGE spoiler in regards to the triplets. Why add a third child to the mix? Was it so that she could add three more baby daddies (because each child was supposed to have 3 fathers)? And don' [...]

    Denisa
    Well, this was disappointingI expected so much more from this book! The previous one was really really good, so I thought this will be at least as good. And it started out that way, but then something happened. Good part though, after about 85%, it got back to being good. On the other hand, I'll really miss this series! I liked the characters and I am curious about what will happen next (although I understood this will be the last book from the series). Ah well, all in all, I loved the story and [...]

    ♂♀♂ Mary's Menage Reviews ♂♂♀
    I love this series and missed it main issue with Lauren K. Hamilton is that she repeat herself too much (even the same joke!). Sometimes the same exact saying a couple chapter apart. The constant recap at the first chapter about the previous book is annoying. It is way too long. Since this story is a saga and CANNOT be read stand alone, it is totally annoying to get a full chapter about how she was raped the "Bring me my darkness" but he is no longer the queen's darkness explication is definitel [...]

    Betrayed, as readers fans and customers. After a five year wait, we have all been betrayed by Laurel K Hamilton with this tripe.Have I not been vehement enough in my dislike if this drivel for you? Please let me try harder. I have read everything Ms. Hamilton has ever written. I waited five years for this book. I re-read the first eight books in less than a week to prepare for Shiver of Light. I paid full price. I waited up to start reading as soon as it was delivered. I am or rather was a die h [...]

    As fans of the series know, this book has been a long time coming. Many people, myself included, worried that the series had been abandoned to writers block and wouldn't be finished. Considering the 5 year wait, I think fans are going to be incredibly disappointed. I know I was. I think after this installment I may just leave the series altogether. I quickly grew tired of how the author couldn't be bothered to come up with a plot, and so has filled the book with sex, the last couple of pages of [...]

    Kathie
    Sadly, this latest and most anticipated entry into the MG series is both overpriced and overrated. As a follower and reader of all LKH's books, I feel cheated. SoL has absolutely no plot, character development, originality (repetitive descriptions and phrases throughout the book and previous books, including the AB series), or anything remotely resembling a progression in the story. All of the real action/excitement occurs off page! Turn the page, be "told" something major has happened in a sent [...]

    I just checked the website and it states the next Merry Gentry book is to be out summer of 2014 for sure now. Before there was not a definitive answer. Yay!!!! I can't wait to hear more about all of her hunky guys and find out who the babies take after. Must be a really long gestational period. :)
