The Merry Gentry series is a series of urban fantasy novels. The series follows Princess Meredith NicEssus aka "Merry Gentry." In A Stroke of Midnight, solving a double homicide, avoiding assassins and coping with growing, sometimes uncontrollable, power keep faerie private detective Princess Meredith NicEssus busy in the fourth and strongest entry in Hamilton's adult fairy tale series. When someone murders a fey and a reporter during a press conference inside the Unseelie's headquarters, Merry calls in the cops to assist. But once on magical turf, human police face challenges and dangers of which the princess was unaware. Meanwhile, Merry lives up to the five fertility deities in her lineage and lustily fulfils her royal duty of mating with sidhe males and making sex beyond mere human comprehension. As Merry matures, the meaning of all the sex and magic comes into more effective focus, as does Hamilton's underlying mythos of the restoration of the faerie race's true power.
