    I'll have to reread this...

    Earc received for an honest review. (Short review)

    I have to be honest. I am not a fan of Menolly, no matter his hard I try I can't get into her character. Its gotten to the point where I have to force myself too read her point of view books because I need them in order to understand the bigger picture.

    This new was a challenge because I have only read so far up to book eight, so I have no idea what's happening from book eight and on. This made it a bit hard to read Crimson Veil, I had a scowl on my face from page one, I was so damn confused.

    All in all... I enjoyed the book, despite my lack of information. I still don't like Menially, but I do understand her as a person or rather vampire. All their lives have changed significantly and no matter how much they fight the good fight, it never seems like its enough. The girls are in. Eve against time to find the next Spirit Seal and Shadow Wing in close.

    Crimson Veil starts off on a rather emotionally sad note and you can't help but be sucked into Menolly's thought process. She has a vulnerability about her, that she tries really hard to hide, but in that moment you see it. Its never easy to lose a friend and I admit that the beginning is what made me actually want to read the book, even though I wasn't anywhere near ready to read it.

    It wouldn't be an Otherworld novel without straight to the point action, but with this book, it came in the form of something more subtler than an attack from something nasty. I enjoyed that more than anything, a break from fighting baddies is a break no matter if its still a mess. Things pick up though, and soon the girls are trying to figure it all out without getting killed in the process.

    Removing my feelings from this. I give Crimson Veil 4 1/2 stars. I plan too reread it once I am caught up with all the books before it.

    Crimson Veil is the fifteenth book in the Sisters of the Moon se

    Crimson Veil is the fifteenth book in the Sisters of the Moon series by Yasmine Galenorn. The series follows the adventures and exploits of the D'Artigo sisters as they battle evil forces and try to bring about the end of the war in the Otherworld. Fans of the series have embraced Galenorn's changing viewpoints and multiple secondary characters throughout the series. Galenorn once again uses her knowledge of the world of magic to bring readers a somewhat dark, but expressive tale that is as intense as the author herself.

    What I liked:

    To say that the world building in this series is staggering is probably an understatement. Galenorn has done a spectacular job of creating characters that readers are attuned to and want to read about again and again. But she also makes the Otherworld and it's struggles so real to the reader that it becomes hard to distinguish between the Otherworld and Earthside. It takes a lot of imagination to bring to life a world that the reader has no concept of from beginning to end and Galenorn does it with ease. She mixes vampires and weres with deamons and demons. The Fae make appearances and other supernatural creatures as well. The three sisters each have their own distinctions as well. From Camile the witch to Delilah the Death Maiden and then to Menolly the vampire. This author has done so much to bring the reader into another universe that it's quite amazing.

    The sisters are the stars of the books obviously and this particular story was told from Menolly's point of view. I had a bit of a hard time connecting to Menolly at first because I didn't see how she connected to the story. But eventually I found myself warming up to her and her own struggles. It seemed that a lot of this story dealt with Menolly's personal issues with the destruction of her bar, the Wayfarer and others like hers that were being targeted. She is a vampire with a wife and has a lot of personal baggage to deal with in this one. 

    I finally started to understand about the spirit seals and the villain Shadow Wing and what he was really up to towards the middle of the book. I think the resolution of that aspect of the story happened a bit too quickly for my tastes. About three quarters of the way through the book, the threat had been eliminated and there was still a quarter of the book to go. It was instrumental in showing me as a reader more about the characters and their relationships, but it kind of let the air leak out, since it wasn't as climatic as the rest of the book. 

    What I didn't like:

    I was somewhat worried about jumping into this series in the fifteenth book. I had not had the opportunity to read anything from this author before and was pretty sure I might be lost. I have to admit I do think it is best to read this series from the beginning. Though Galenorn does a good job of cluing new readers into what is going on, I think the reader probably misses a lot of the nuances and circumstantial cues that might make more sense had they read them all. 

    Bottom Line:

    Even though I struggled to review this book, I thought Galenorn's writing style was engaging. Her world building was phenomenal and her characters were interesting. I did think that the overall threat in this book wrapped up too early and the rest was more about the personal struggles of the main character, Menolly. But it was certainly interesting enough that I want to go back and see what I missed.
