Laural Merlington reads with professionalism and technical finesse but contributes little to the suspense and intrigue of this X-rated sensual novel. Hamilton combines the complex politics of the Celtic fairy world with the modern-day setting of Los Angeles to create a fascinating and intricate plot. Merlington uses accents, pacing, and volume to characterize the cast of goddesses, warriors, goblins, monsters, the Seelie, and the Unseelie. Her style for the heroine, PI Meredith Gentry, is believable, but the murder mystery plays a minor role to the sex, wit, and romance. Listeners will be surprised by the ending but may lose interest before they get there. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
