All Hail The Princess Meredith. Weilder of the Hands of Flesh and Blood.

Yes, the awaited latest installment of Laurel K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series, "A Lick of Frost," is out.


I describe the series as sorta like Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, but more sex and violence (oh and something you usually do not find in an Anne Rice book . . .political intrigue.)

Anyway, I am going to move right on to the moving quote (and it is quotes like the following that make me think Ms. Hamilton has a heart as big as a whale, and an understanding of the human condition that many alleged literary writers sadly lack, actually).

But let me get to the quote.

"It is not merely happiness we all seek. We seek some place where we belong. For the lucky few, we find it in childhood with our own families. But for most of us we spend our adult lives seeking that place or person or organization that makes us feel that we are important, that we matter, and that without us something would go undone and undoable. We all need to feel that we are irreplaceable."

So true, that!
