Laurell K. Hamilton - A ​Stroke of Midnight
I ​am Meredith Gentry, P.I. and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Fairie. Now there are those among me who whisper I am more. They fear me even as they protect me. And who can blame them? I’ve awakened the dazzling magic that’s slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can’t figure out why. I am Meredith Gentry, P.I., solving cases in Los Angeles, far from the peril and deception of my real home–because I am also Princess Meredith, heir to the darkest throne faerie has to offer. The Unseelie Court infuses me with its power. But at what price does such magic come? How much of my human side will I have to give up, and how much of the sinister side of faerie will I have to embrace? To sit on a throne that has ruled through bloodshed and violence for centuries, I might have to become that which I dread the most. Enemies watch my every move. My cousin Cel strives to have me killed even now from his prison cell. But not all the assassination attempts are his. Some Unseelie nobles have waited centuries for my aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, to become weak enough that she might be toppled from her throne. Enemies unforeseen move against us–enemies who would murder the least among us. The threat will drive us to allow human police into faerie for the first time in our history. I need my allies now more than ever, especially since fate will lead me into the arm of Mistral, Master of Storms, the queen’s new captain of her guard. Our passion will reawaken powers long forgotten among the warriors of the sidhe. Pain and pleasure await me–and danger, as well, for some at that court seek only death. I will find new joys with the butterfly-winged demi-fey. My guards and I will show all of faerie that violence and sex are as popular among the sidhe as they are among the lesser fey of our court. The Darkness will weep, and Frost will comfort him. The gentlest of my guards will find new strength and break my heart. Passions undreamed of await us–and my enemies gather, for the future of both courts of faerie begins to unravel.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Egy ​sötét úr halála
Egy ​mágiától rettegő világban egy lány ráébred varázserejére. De megbízhat-e az ajándékában az árulások földjén?

Laurell K. Hamilton - Borzongató ​fény
„Meredith ​NicEssus Hercegnő vagyok. Hivatalosan Meredith Gentry, mert a „Hercegnő” annyira nagyképű lenne a jogosítványomban. Én voltam az első tündérhercegnő, aki az Amerikai Egyesült Államok földjén született, de már nem sokáig leszek én az egyetlen.” Merry Gentry, ex-magánnyomozó, jelenleg teljes állású hercegnő tudta, hogy ősei között termékenység Istennők is voltak, de csak akkor kezdte megérteni, mit is jelent ez valójában, amikor kiderült, hogy hármas ikreket vár. A terméketlenség évszázadok óta sújtotta a faerie legfelsőbb köreinek tagjait. Most az udvartartások nemesei jönnek a Nyugati Tájak Los Angeles nevű városába Merry-nek és szeretőinek udvarolni, mert bármit megtennének azért, hogy utódjuk születhessen. Taranis, a Fény és Illúzió Királya sokkal veszélyesebbnek bizonyult. Megpróbálta elcsábítani Merry-t, és miután kudarcot vallott, megerőszakolta. Ezt követően az emberek bíróságához fordult, megpróbált láthatást kikényszeríteni, arra hivatkozva, hogy a babák egyikének ő az apja. Bár Meredith tudja, már várandós volt, amikor a férfi magáévá tette, ezt bizonyítani jelenleg lehetetlenség. Annak érdekében, hogy ő és a babák is megmeneküljenek Taranistől, a faerie legveszélyesebb fegyvereit fogja bevetni: a Sötétség néven ismert harcost, a Gyilkos Fagyot és a rémálmok egy királyát. Ők mind a szeretői, a legkedvesebb szerelmei, és szembe fognak szállni a faerie leghatalmasabb udvaraival, miközben arra is törekedniük kell, hogy megvédjék Los Angeles ártatlan polgárainak életét, nehogy járulékos veszteségként írják le őket.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Resti ​mortali
Resuscitare ​i morti (per un breve periodo) era considerato magia nera. Ma ormai è diventata un'operazione di routine, almeno per Anita Blake: tracciare un cerchio, uccidere una capra o un gallo e... voilà! Il caro estinto può finalmente chiarire a chi intendeva "davvero" lasciare il suo castello oppure testimoniare contro il suo assassino. Ma se il defunto in questione è tale da qualche centinaio di anni, la faccenda si complica. Non basta più un animale; ci vuole un sacrificio umano. E Anita non è disposta a uccidere nessuno, neppure per un milione di dollari. Tanto infatti le è stato offerto e tanto lei ha rifiutato, per la disperazione del suo capo all'Animators' Inc. Faccenda chiusa? Niente affatto.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Rafael
Rafaelnek, ​a vérpatkányok királyának életre-halálra szóló párbajt kell vívnia, hogy megtarthassa a koronáját. Korábbi ellenfeleivel könnyűszerrel végzett, de a mostani kihívója sokkal veszélyesebbnek tűnik. Ezért a párbaj éjjelén mindenképpen maga mellett szeretné tudni egyik legrégebbi és legmegbízhatóbb szövetségesét, Anita Blake-et. A vérpatkányok között azonban akadnak, akik túlságosan is szorosnak ítélik a vámpírokhoz fűződő köteléket. Úgy vélik, Amerikában csak egyetlen természetfeletti királynak van hely, és ha Rafael ennyire kiszolgáltatja magát és az övéit a szövetségeseinek, akkor a patkányok végül a vérszívók játékszerévé és eleségévé válnak. Közülük lép elő az új kihívó is. Egy vérpatkány, aki fiatalabb és éhesebb a mostani uralkodónál, de sötét titkokat rejteget, amelyek nem csak a saját fajtájának, de a vámpírok vesztének ígéretét is hordozzák. Rafael azonban tántoríthatatlan: vállalja a küzdelmet, és világa megmentéséért a legvéresebb erőszaktól sem retten meg.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Ragály
Egyes ​zombikat felélesztenek, másokat meg elpusztítanak. Csak kérdezd meg erről a szakma legjobbját, Anita Blake-et, aki mostanáig inkább puszta kellemetlenségként tekintett rájuk, semmint potenciális veszélyforrásként. Persze, mert egészen eddig egyikőjük sem próbálta meg kegyetlenül elpusztítani az embereket. De most valami furcsa dolog történt velük. Micah apja haldoklik, feltehetőleg egy húsevő zombi marta meg, és talán már csak napjai vannak hátra, mielőtt élve elrohad. Anita, Micah és Nathaniel a coloradói Boulderbe utazik, hogy Micah – közel húsz év után – újra találkozzon a családjával, és elbúcsúzhasson az apjától. A látogatásból azonban gyorsan nyomozás lesz, mert kiderül, hogy a zombik eddig sosem látott módon, tömegesen járnak a hegyekben, ráadásul halálos ragályt terjesztenek. A kötet tartalmazza a _Tánc_ című novellát is.

A vad falka élére áll, hogy megtorolja anyjaként szeretett és tisztelt nagyanyja halálát. A legfőbb célpontok azonban ő maga és méhében hordott ikergyermekei, valamint az utódok apjai, a testőrei. Andais, a Levegő és Sötétség Királynője Unseelie Udvartartásából a trón eddigi várományosa, Cel korábban sem fogta vissza gyilkos indulatait. Ezúttal is kíméletlenül a hercegnő és sarjai elpusztítására tör. Ugyanakkor nagybátyja, Taranis – feltételezett apai jogon – magának követeli Merry gyermekeit. Eközben a tündérdombok megvetett udvara, a sluagh virágba és mágiába borulva újfent megerősödik. Ám az éjfekete éjrepülők is kevesek megmenteni az önkéntes száműzetésbe kényszerülő újdonsült királynőt és kíséretét. Eljön a leszámolás, a mindent eldöntő csata ideje: Merry csak az Istennő, a Hitves segedelmében és oltalmában bízhat, hogy ő és gyermekei, szerettei túlélik az összecsapást. Vajon fény derül-e Meredith apja, Essus herceg halálának körülményeire? Lesújt-e újra a kegyetlen gyilkos? Mit kell feladnia a hús és vér kezének hatalmával bíró hercegnőnek azért, hogy elnyerje személyes boldogságát.

Love, ​Supernatural Style Love is the universal language. And nowhere is this more apparent than in these extraordinary stories from four of today’s hottest authors. From a futuristic cop caught in a crisis of the heart to a smoldering vision of an unusual love triangle, from the hunger for a human touch on an alien planet to a witch’s desperate search for the love of one man, these tales of paranormal romance will transport you to a time and a place you’ve never been before….

Laurell K. Hamilton - Circus ​of the Damned

Now there's a new vampire in town named Alejandro and he wants Anita for his servant. His attempts to win her lead to a war of the undead.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Seduced ​by Moonlight
The ​third novel in Laurell K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series, Seduced by Moonlight continues the story of Merry Gentry, a mortal Faerie princess hiding in L.A. Her aunt, the immortal and insane Queen of Air and Darkness, has ordered her to compete with her cousin, Prince Cel, in making a baby. Whoever produces a child first wins the throne of the Unseelie Court. But Merry still hasn't conceived--and that's not her only problem. Unknown assassins seek her life; her magical powers are becoming potent and uncontrollable; and her sadistic aunt has just commanded her to return to Faerie. Readers tired of mild modern fairy-tales about nice, polite elves may want to explore the Meredith Gentry series, which remembers that Faerie was originally a dark, dangerous realm of sex and violence. Hamilton's Queen of Air and Darkness is a vicious killer and torturer, and many of her fay drink blood or practice kinky sex (or both). Under royal orders to bed many males, Merry is far from averse; she and several lovers hit the bedroom on page 8 of Seduced by Moonlight and don't emerge until page 175. There's no shortage of sex, but not as much as the page count may indicate; the characters like to talk and sulk even more than they like to fornicate. The large cast and complicated backstory make this book the wrong starting point; newcomers should begin with the first novel, A Kiss of Shadows. --Cynthia Ward
