I had fought my way through about two hundred pages of badly written soft porn I have no aversion at all to well written soft porn and had come to a section where various of the loathsome characters were discussing adoringly the genital endowment of a particular historical vampire. This vampire, we were told salivatingly, had been the possessor of a penis so doughty that his erection was a full six inches thick. Not six inches long. Not even six inches in circumference. But thick. This reviewer did not, as might have so many other men, rush straight to the nearest mirror to gaze at and weep over his own deficiencies.

Plot introduction[ edit ] A faerie princess turned private investigator in a world where faeries are not only known to the general public, but are also popular, the heroine is Princess Meredith NicEssus. As niece to Andais, The Queen of Air and Darkness, she is a royal of the Unseelie Court, however having fled the court three years before she has been hiding herself under the name of Merry Gentry and working as a private investigator for the Grey Detective Agency.
Plot summary[ edit ] The story begins in Los Angeles, California, in a world where magical creatures are "out of the closet" and, in some cases, even legal. When two women come to the agency with a story about fey-wannabes and rituals involving fey women, Merry goes undercover to investigate. Brought to see their King, Sholto, he offers Meredith a deal. Himself disapproved of by Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, because of his mixed blood, he proposes an alliance between the two of them.
Shocked, Merry tries to flee, but is trapped. He announces that the Queen never sent the Sluagh, and that in fact the Queen meant her no harm. Merry returns with Doyle to the Court. The Queen claims that she wants her bloodline to continue upon the throne. She is willing to take as her heir whichever of Meredith or her cousin, Cel, can first produce an heir. She lifts the geiss of celibacy upon her Ravens for Meredith alone, insisting that she choose at least three in order to increase the chance of pregnancy.
While this offer would permit Merry to end her self-imposed exile and return home, it also brings dangers. Cel, previously the sole heir, makes several attempts upon her life. Merry makes alliances with others such as Kurag, the Goblin King. In punishment, he is to be confined for six months after being coated with the oil himself, something akin to torture.
Andais is a war goddess, and the sadistic Queen of the Unseelie Court. Although she is a sadist and is widely believed to be insane, Andais appears to have the best interests of the Court at heart and has sworn to abdicate her throne in favor of whichever of Cel or Merry can demonstrate themselves capable of producing new sidhe children. Her current consort is Eamon. He has long been called the "Kingmaker" for his involvement in the selection of court rulers. He supported first Essus and now Merry for the Unseelie throne.
Cel - Prince of Old Blood and son of Andais. His personal guard is made up entirely of women. Often referred to as Killing Frost. Lineage is half-pixie and half Unseelie sidhe. Powers include subtle ability to have everyone like him. Extremely unpolitical, naive and idealistic. He is the voice of childhood reasoning for Merry. Unfortunately, letting go of those ideals is allowing Merry to survive.
Has a conjoined twin that is attached to the side of his head. When formally addressed by Merry, she addresses both Kruag and his twin. Rhys - Raven, former God of Death. Film Noir buff. Can kill with a touch.
