After Dark Review of Seduced by Moonlight by Laurell K. Hamilton

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Synopsis: "My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen’s Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe blooded ones, the power surges like never before.

It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they’re consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I…."

My Review: Gosh I really love Merry and her men! I really have to say, Frost continues to drive me insane, but I do love Doyle still. I have to say this book got a little more into the magic and a little more into the past of the men, which was exciting. I think my favorite part of the books though is the political maneuvering and intrigue, absolutely love how Merry is able to negotiate her way through all the twisted rules and customs. However, its a little unfortunate that there are even more characters added when you are just feeling like you finally understanding the current main ones. All in all another great adventure with Merry!

My Rating: As with all the Laurell K. Hamilton books, I really really enjoyed Seduced by Moonlight.  I give it a rating of Four Paws.

Warning: Adult themes, situations, nudity, danger, blood and death.
