Holiday Gift Guide: Swallowing Darkness by Laurell K. Hamilton

Laurell K. Hamilton is relentless. Since 1993, she has been dishing up her special blend of paranormal eroticism. Clearly, not everyone’s cup of hot beverage, but millions upon millions of fans line up, mostly, for new books in one of two series: the ever popular Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter books -- the most recent of which was Blood Noir (Berkley) -- and her lesser known and more recently launched Merry Gentry series, of which Swallowing Darkness (Ballantine) is one.

In this series, a faerie princess has turned private investigator and is hiding out in L.A. I must share something from the press material, because it’s just too rich to keep all to myself: “Between dark faerie magic and the deepest desires lies the world of Meredith Gentry -- princess, private investigator, and powerful player in a game of supernatural sexual intrigue.”

You see what I’m saying?

In this new book, Gentry is determined to fulfill her destiny and deliver an heir... or more. Again: not everyone has a taste for this sort of reading, but chances are, if your giftee is one of Hamilton’s many fans, this is the one they’d be delighted to find a copy of under their tree.
