Overview

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy-and sexy-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch whose magic is as unpredictable as the weather. My sister Menolly is a vampire trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Delilah. When I'm under stress, I transform into a tabby cat-and a series of violent murders is really getting me bent out of shape... Someone's been slaughtering the Weres of the Rainier Puma Pride, and my sisters and I have been enlisted to investigate by Zachary Lyonnesse, golden boy of the werepumas. Right away we smelled demon trouble, and we tracked it directly into the snare of the Hunters Moon Clan, sworn enemies of Puma Pride. But there's more than Were rivalry at work. It's that old demon Shadow Wing who's setting a deadly snare for the Pumas. We have to find out why, which means a visit to one of the Immortals. Unfortunately for my sisters and me, our half-human blood is just enough to put us in mortal danger.

Changeling / 978-1-429-53812-1 The second in the "Sisters of the Moon" series, "Changeling" switches the narrative point of view from the older sister Camille (seen in "Witchling") to the middle sister Delilah. This point of view change characterizes the series - each book is written from a different sister's point of view and every three books, the cycle begins again - and underscores the essential role that character development fills in this charming series. Whereas Delilah - a half-human, half-Fae Werecat who accidentally turns into a 10-pound tabby cat whenever stressed or startled - was in the first book a rather delicate and naive pollyanna determined to believe the best in even her darkest enemies, we see through this second book that such a one-sided description of her personality falls completely short of describing the full person. As the quiet middle child, Delilah struggles frequently to express and assert herself to her sisters, and while she is certainly determinedly kind-hearted, the events of the first novel have left their mark on her, and she is no longer as trusting and careless as she seemed before to be. Delightfully, the plot of this novel picks up almost directly where the last left, and it's gratifying to see that no Reset Buttons have been pressed - all the events of the previous novel have a strong bearing on this one. Camille's lovers continue to jockey for favorable positions, Chase and Delilah are still working out the dynamics of their fledgling relationship, and the demons are still after the Spirit Seals and revenge. It's nice to see a series that isn't afraid to move forward with the overarching plot, and doesn't rely on the usual "several months later" time jumps to try to wrap up dangling plot threads behind the scenes. Much to its credit, "Changeling" follows in the footsteps of "Witchling" with more careful world building - Delilah is able to examine several different approaches to living among humans that the "Earthside" Supes (Supernaturals) have developed. Galenorn has put a lot of thought into such problems as infertility and inbreeding among the Earthside Supes who have, until recently, been totally isolated among humans and their kind. The new enemies, also, are imaginative and frightful, and a lot of work has gone into making them plausibly strong and scary. I recommend this series strongly for anyone who enjoys supernatural thrillers, particularly ones that focus on character development and world building. ~ Ana Mardoll

This book caught my attention from the beginning. I love the authors take from this character! Delilah is the second sister and shape-shifter of the group. While she seems to be the youngest when considering her nature and naivety, Delilah is abruptly introduced to the real world. Having to summon one of the Elemental Lords to help her protect the local were-puma pride, Delilah finds herself marked as a Death Maiden. Not only will she be responsible for crossing souls over but she now has a second shape (a panther)! All in all, this is turning out to be an interesting series. Started out a little slow but it's picking up speed. I'm started Darkling tonight!

I was really disappointed by this book. I bought this book after first reading her short story in the anthology "Inked", and after reading reviews and seeing that it was rated with 4 1/2 stars. Usually a 4 1/2 star reading equates to an awesome book, but not in this case. Her writing is very immature and not cohesive. I just wasn't able to immerse myself into her world and connect with her main characters. The sisters come across as one-dimensional caricatures, not the complex powerful women they should be. I agree with a previous poster, that the sex was gratuitous and unnecessary. I would say it even detracted from the story. I'm an avid urban fantasy/paranormal romance reader, but I just can't call myself a fan of this one. Galenorn has some great fans, and she is blessed for that. I'm just really unimpressed with this one. I might give her another chance, but only if I find it in a library (not spending $$ on another one of these).

This series just keeps getting better and better. I highly recommend this book to anybody that likes a mix of magic/fantasy, action, romance, and suspence. This title is number 2 in a series and I am definitely hooked on this author's work.

The three half breed Otherworld Intelligence Agency operatives, the human¿Faerie D¿Artigo sisters know even more so with their opening triumph over the malevolent demon Shadow Wing that one battle does not mean the war is won (see WITCHLING). Instead it has just begun for Camille the witch, Menolly the vampire, and Delilah the shapeshifter, who remain on earth as protectors of the paranormal.------------------- Werepuma Zachary Lyonesse asks the siblings to investigate the serial murders of his Rainier Puma Pride. Delilah, who turns into a purring cat, and her sisters smell demon, but the trail leads to another rival were pack. However, the trio believes a werespider demon tied to their adversary the demonic Shadow Wing is the killer so Delilah turns to the Immortal Autumn Lord for help although she fears the price he will charge might be her priceless half-blood. -------------------------- CHANGELING is a powerful supernatural urban fantasy with a touch of a whodunit that works because the cast especially the sisterly trio and the were world seem genuine. The action never slows down as the witch, the vampiress, and the ¿kitten¿ battle evil knowing the risks they must take. Sub-genre fans will want to join the siblings on their daring escapades to keep the earth realm safe from demonic possession.--------------------- Harriet Klausner

Great series, they kept me interested and they flow very well. The way the author put them together each sister has a book and then its starts over each sister being the star of a book. I would recommend any of this series but if you read them in order they will make more since.

I really enjoyed reading this sisters side. I liked it a lot. A bunch of stuff goes down and leaves you wanting to read the last book to see how they all end up.
