Enjoyable dark urban fantasy that did not disappoint.
Best book of Yasmine's Indigo Court series to date (with a gorgeous cover to boot)! If you like dark urban fantasy, I recommend this series (the first book is Night Myst if you need a place to start). As the fourth novel in the series, there is plenty of suspense, power shifts and sexy bits. Several major events occur in this book, but you'll get no spoilers from me ;). Losses are grieved and victories are only bittersweet as the stakes are raised before the fifth and final book in the series (Night's End) will be released in July 2014. Although not a beefy entrée, this book is a nice light read that still manages to have a deep mythology about it. Both eager and sad that the series is coming to a close in 2014, it is a very worthwhile mystical trip into the darkness.

Night's Vision is book four in the Indigo Court series. This is
Night's Vision is book four in the Indigo Court series. This is a dark Urban Fantasy series, that I highly enjoy. There is always a ton of fighting, and the villains are truly wicked, they're fae vampires. The book's main character is Cicely, she's a owl shifter that also controls wind. In this book, Cicely and her cousin Rhiannon are finally crowned the Fae Queens of Winter and Summer. Every Queen needs their King, so they are also marrying their loves since childhood. Most of the book is showing Cicely learning how to be Queen and making decisions on how best to protect her people.
Nothing is that easy though, there are always challenges for the main characters in YGalenorn's books. Myst, the Queen of the Indigo Court is out to get Cicely, but while she doesn't play a huge part in this book the threat is still there. This time around the major case of cat and mouse is with the vampires that Cicely has dealt with in the past. Geoffrey and Leo free an insane vampire that is older than dirt and they wreak havoc in the city. Leo kidnaps Rhiannon, the Fae Queen of Summer, which lead to several quite dark scenes.
The Indigo Court series is a darker Urban Fantasy that revolves around the fae and also includes some of the many types of paranormal characters we love. As I mentioned above, there are fae, shifters, vampires and witches, so pretty much a bit of everything you could ask for. YGalenorn's world building is always excellent, and Night's Vision gives more depth in the changes the series is taking. I'll be reviewing Night's End, the last book in the series very soon and suggest the Indigo Court series if you're looking for a dark Urban Fantasy.

The Blood Oracle has been set loose upon New Forest, Washington and Rhiannon has been kidnapped and Cicely must lead her forces in a bloody battle to save her cousin before everything they have worked for crumbles to dust in this captivating urban fantasy.Was this review helpful?

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge with lots of suspense, action, and drama. The well written scenes inspire vivid images and capture the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense and drama draw the reader deeper into the story. The action scenes are exciting and believable making it easy to get caught up in all the thrilling situations that Cicely and her forces must face in order to save Rhiannon and the characters are strong and enticing ensuring that the reader wants to know everything that is going on.
The story is non-stop action and drama that keeps things exciting and seemingly never ending for Cicely, especially when her and Rhiannon thought their destinies were getting closer to their grasp, they thought they could rest a little while Myst was hiding in her shadows of course they realize she is regrouping but was too much to ask for just a small break. No…the renegade vampires Leo and Geoffrey just had to stir things up by setting none other than the Blood Oracle loose on New Forest to cause lots of havoc and of course Leo taking Rhiannon is just the icing on the cake for Cicely. Maybe one day she’ll be able to the Queen of Winter and settle down with Grievem and Rhiannon, the Queen of Summer will be able to have her happily ever after with Chatter.
Once again Yasmine Galenorn makes a story that is fascinating, thrilling and exciting with surprising twists and bewitching characters including the chilling villains. I was completely caught up in the story from the very beginning and couldn’t put it down until I found out how Cicely and Rhiannon fared against these enemies. Note: I highly recommend that the series be read in order to get the full impact of the characters and the situation surrounding them.

Cicely and Rhiannon are coming to terms with being the queens of the fae courts. The coronation is fast approaching as well as the plans for their joint weddings. But behind all the planning the uncertainty of their future and what they are to become is overwhelming both cousins.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It is not all joyous planing, danger lurks around every corner. Geoffrey and Leo have released the blood oracle, Crawl, and he is slaughtering his way through town with a single focus of getting to Cicely. Leo wants to reclaim Rhiannon even if it means creating another evil abomination like Myst. While Myst still lurks in the background waiting for her chance to destroy them all.
The story starts out pretty slow but transitions into the fast paced action we come to expect from the Indigo Court series.
I wasn't happy with the turn of events between Cicely and Lannan or Rhia and Leo. To avoid giving spoilers, I just want to say sometimes you can create more effect by making actions implied than vividly described. I guess I'm getting really tired of the non-consent and questionable consent situations many authors are including in their works.
All that being said...
Night Vision is vividly descriptive, brilliantly imaginative, and provides hours of riveting reading. The cast of characters is pretty extensive and even the sub-characters plights are gripping. Yasmine Galenorn writes additive characters and creates fascinating stories by twisting the modern world with vampires, fae, shifters and magic.

Love the series, love the authors writing style. Love the storyline. She keeps it adult without spending chapter after chapter describing sexual acts only a contortionist MIGHT be able to participate in. So far each book is as good as the first, which is usually not the case. I wish you happy reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
