yea...Obsidian Butterfly was the last good book. I
think I am in denial that they will be good again. I
was completely disappointed with Incubus Dreams. At
least Narcissus in Chains and gods..even Cerulean Sins
had SOME semblence of a plot. Incubus Dreams was sex
with a smattering of "OH SHIT, WE FORGOT ABOUT THE

I think it's also due to her hitting hard cover
releases. I have a feeling the publisher told her to
try and get more readers. I wonder if she knows she
lost all her original fanbase.

I seriously thought they would make it to the Seelie
court in this book. I was really disappointed when
the entire book ended in a day. -_- SOOOO much
happened, huge plot driving things..but the plot is,
as you said, spread over too many books. And with her
only releasing a book every other year...it's way too
spread out. I read in an interview with her that
Merry is going to be a closed ended series, unlike
anita. So hopefully, gods hopefully, she has some
sort of arc planned...
