Having given up on Hamilton’s Anita Blake series, I figured I would give her Fae books a try. Unfortunately, A Caress of Twilight is no better than the Anita Blake novels. Just like her vampire books, this novel is oversexed for no particular reason. The story is weak and after about a dozen chapters, it was no longer capable of holding my interest.
In this novel, Faerie princess Meredith Gentry, who has left the land of the Fae, and is our mortal world, is trying to give birth to a child and take her claim to the Unseelie throne. An exiled goddess with a dark secret is Meredith’s latest client. So much of the novel was about Faerie politics and what goes on in the Seelie and Unseelie Courts, and very little of it was interesting. This was a forgettable novel that I would recommend skipping.
