Overview

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we're 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 Delilah transforms into a tabby cat at the worst possible times. And me? I'm Menolly, acrobat-extraordinaire-turned-vampire. And if the nerds from hell don't get their act together, I'm going to turn their toga party into a bloodbath...

Life's getting stranger by the minute. First, Iris and I unearth a diary from one of the bartenders at the Wayfarer who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. And when I discover a ghoul in the woods near our home, we know there has to be a necromancer nearby—another sign that something's wrong. But the blood really hits the fang when we discover a secret society bent on winning Shadow Wing's favor. Now it's up to us to stop the chaos they've unleashed on the city and to prevent the demon they summoned from devouring Delilah's soul.

    The latest Otherworld urban romantic fantasy is a super entry

    In Seattle, Menolly D'Atigo still adjusts to being a vampire while working with her sisters Camille the witch (see DRAGON WYTCH) and Delilah the shapeshifting Death Maiden (see NIGHT HUNTER) for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. However, while cleaning the bar where she works, she finds fascinating items left behind by the elf bartender who returned to Otherworld. A diary the elf kept insists he felt he was stalked and implies he may have been killed instead of going home.-------------

    However, while Menolly considers what to do, a new radically different demonic assault begins to absorb the life force out of the fae. There appears no counterattack to prevent this threat from succeeding and evidence mounts that a quisling human group is abetting the demon Lord Shadow Wing. ----------

    The latest Otherworld urban romantic fantasy is a super entry as Menolly leads the charge this time. Once again there is a ton of support players allies and villains that make the well written numerous subplots even more complex. Fans will enjoy the latest D'Atigo sister's take on their adventures as this time the trio tries solve the mystery of the bartending elf while also attempting to keep two worlds safe from the demon horde.--------------

    Demon Mistress

    I suggest you read the previous five books in order before taking this book on (Witchling, Changeling, Darkling, Dragon Wytch and Night Huntress). Menolly is my favorite out of the sisters. She is tough, cynical and the least bratty. If you are a fan of the Otherworld series you won't be disappointed with this book. Menolly and the gang investigate the kidnapping of an elf women and a vampiress. Simultaneously, Chase has his hands full with unsupervised ghouls. A fraternity house full of amateur necromancers is unleashing chaos on the Fae and Elvin community. There is plenty of action and intrigue to make this one of the best book of the Otherworld series. However, I must say, I hate the sex scenes this author writes in for the sisters. They seem so non-eventful, unnecessary, boring, and passionless. I do however, recommend this book and the entire series. I also look forward to the next book Bone Magic due out 1/15/2010.

    Getting better with ever book

    I have to admit that Menolly was my least favorite of the sisters. I thought that Camille and Delilah had more depth. Menolly does not disappoint in this book. There is plenty of action as usual and Menolly gets more personal with Rozurial. The books sets up the next story in the quest for the spirit seals nicely. Can't wait.

    Ghouls of Summer can't be beat!

    Readers of Galenorn's books may have become accustomed to her kick ass, teeth-gritting action right out of the gate..Demon Mistress starts with a fight, too; a fight with dust bunnies. Yes, Menolly D'Artigo, vampiric acrobat and bar manager, OIA agent and 1/3 of one of the most powerful trio of feminine power in contemporary fiction, battles dust bunnies with Iris. This unexpected entry back into Galenorn's world is a perfect way to walk into the wyrd side with the D'Artigo women, because nothing about this book is expected or ordinary.

    As long-time readers know, each book in this series focuses primarily on one of the three sisters, in order: Camille, the oldest and witchiest; Delilah, the shape-changing middle sister; and Menolly, the vampiric youngest of the trio, who is the focus of Demon Mistress. In Darkling, book 3 in the series, and Menolly's last feature story, we learn about the dark details that make up her history, and we see her overcome that history. It is a dark tale that is necessary in the unfolding world of the D'Artigos. Demon Mistress is a lighter slice of action and romance for Menolly. Do not, however, think this means the story lacks for import or sheer force. Indeed, I would be forced to say that with Demon Mistress, Galenorn comes into her own as a writer. This book pulls no punches; it's a boot to the head one moment and a full-mouthed kiss on the lips the next that leaves you begging for more.

    Menolly and Iris unearth a diary while cleaning at the Wayfarer. This leads them down a long, dark alley full of demon spawn and ghouls with a yen for flesh. The bad guys in this book, like so many other aspects of the story, are not what you expect. This may be one of the keys to this story's success; so much happens on the surface of the story that you don't realize how much thinking you're doing below the depths. You might not expect to run into one of Hemingway's icebergs in a novel of romantic urban fantasy, but Galenorn negotiates the ice flows like an expert. She tells a rollicking good tale that also makes you think; I cannot give a book higher praise.

    In addition to expounding on Menolly's story, we see Delilah and Camille's relationships with their significant others advance. Other advances Earth side and in Y'Elestrial bring readers a sense of cycles completing, while paving the way for the next trio of stories. The D'Artigo books are clearly a series, but it is a series made up of trilogies, and Demon Mistress gives readers a satisfying end to this mini-trilogy. Too often series books simply leave you waiting, which is a little unsatisfying. Ms. Galenorn has done her job, however; Demon Mistress leaves you looking toward Bone Magic, book 7 in the series, with bated breath without cheating you of a solid story in its own right.

    Eh.

    If you have read the previous books so far I'm sure you've noticed that Galenorn can't go more than five pages without mentioning Camille... Even when the book isn't supposed to be focused on her. This series would be fine if the author only had one main character but the fact that she has three, well one would think the other two charactors would have their own stories without having to share it with another. Galenorn makes it clear who her favorite is and eventually it just becomes obnoxious while reading the other stories. This series has the potential to be better if it wasn't so focused on making one character outshine the rest. All in all, it would have been nice to actually see the other characters shine in their own stories. And dissapointingly enough, I feel like this series will continue that way.

    Breathes Fresh Life into the Series

    Demon Mistress / 978-1-101-05529-8

    The sixth book in the "Sisters of the Moon" series, "Demon Mistress" continues the familiar point-of-view switch by settling back into the braids of the youngest D'Artigo sister, Menolly. I felt that Menolly's last book, "Darkling", was the best of the first three novels in the series, and I have nothing but good things to say about "Demon Mistress", particularly after the very slightly stale "middle-series" feel the earlier two books seemed to carry.

    Menolly has always been my favorite point-of-view sister, partly because her stories are always Darker and Edgier, partly because for whatever reason she seems to rehash plot points from the older books a *lot* less often than the other two (perhaps because the rehashing usually takes the form of angst, another thing Menolly avoids like the plague, and yet another reason to like her), and partly because her love interest subplots seem somehow healthier and more believable than her sisters, whether it be "Possessiveness Equals Love" Camille or "Torture Makes Relationships Stronger" Delilah (although, to be fair, I'm guessing we'll see a little more complication from that when next Delilah has a turn to speak).

    "Demon Mistress" does not disappoint, and in fact starts off with a bang as Galenorn decides to tackle the overarching plot with a new approach - notably by throwing up about four major subplots at the wall and then letting them all stick together in one thread. A common plot device in mystery series, true, but one that can work very well and "Demon Mistress" is an example of doing things right. For possibly the first time in the series, we are treated to a greater demon who is actually scary enough to give the readers nightmares, if only because this one is largely animalistic and therefore somehow scarier. Equally pleasantly, and scarily, is the human cult fraternity we are treated to in the last half of the book, making me actually scared for the sisters' safety.

    If you've stuff with the series this far, I predict you'll love "Demon Mistress" as much as I.

    Always intertaining reading

    I really enjoy the three sisters and their adventures. They each have their own "power" and the problems that go along with them.
    Her stories always have enough humor to go along with the danger and even the romance.
    Good read

    If you love the Sister's of the Moon series, you have to read Demon Mistress!

    Yasmine Galenorn never lets you down when it comes to this series! Every book she writes about the D'Artigo sisters just gets better and better. The plotline keeps you going, between the personal relationships of the characters and the constant struggle between good and evil and the battle to save humanity.. It will be a sad day when this storyline comes to an end.

    New Spin on the Vampires

    Menolly is by far the most dramatic character. Constantly battling her more primal instincts and at the same time longing for the life she has before it was ripped away from her.
