Staff Reviews

 I'm always interested in what twists Yasmine Galenorn will bring to her Otherworld series, and in her latest, the 12th in the series, Shadow Rising she has really ramped it up. Menolly and Nerissa's commitment ceremony is fast approaching, and given her choice, Menolly would leave all the arrangements up to Nerissa and just show up. It's not that she doesn't care, or that her love for Nerissa is waning --quite the opposite! If anything, Menolly's love for Nerissa has grown -- but let's face it. Given the choice of choosing colors and flowers or kicking a demon's butt, Menolly will kick first. Girlie things aren't her forte. However, the way things are piling up now, flowers and music are looking pretty good. The sisters are called back to the Otherworld, where a war is building, and where they will have to face their father. Here in Seattle, something unseen is attacking magic users, and the Lord of the Ghosts is probably behind it. And Menolly's tie to Morio is beginning to be truly problematic. Yasmine has created a complex and beautifully peopled world, and I'm always pleased at how she brings in threads from previous books, little bits she's planted that were overlooked at the time but now suddenly have additional meaning and impact. Minor characters are now becoming major players, and everyone, including all three sisters, are growing and changing. I like that. And let me just say that she's hinted a bit at what's going to happen in the next one, Haunted Moon, due out in January, and I can't wait!

We're the D'Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch with three sexy husbands. My sister Delilah is a two-faced werecat and Death Maiden. And me? I'm Menolly, a jian-tu turned vampire in love with a wildly hot werepuma. Unfortunately, life is about to get very, very nasty...
Nerissa and I can't decide on what we want to do for our promise ceremony and we're bickering like an old married couple. My sisters and I head to Otherworld for a meeting with Queen Asteria. Once there, we discover that Shadow Wing has dispatched Telazhar--a malevolent necromancer--to reignite the Scorching Wars. And as soon as we return back home, we find Gulakah, the Lord of Ghosts, waging a battle to control the magical beings over Earthside. Caught between two terrible enemies in a battle spanning two worlds, we can only hope we're in time to stop all-out annihilation.
