Overview

We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae means our supernatural talents always go haywire at the wrong time. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch who attracts men like honey attracts flies. Menolly's a vampire who's still getting the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Delilah, a werecat who's been marked by the Autumn Lord as one of his Death Maidens. And wouldn't you know it, Karvanak—the demon general who stole the third spirit seal—is back. And this time, he's out for blood...

The Hags of Fate enjoy seeing me squirm. First, my boyfriend, Chase, mutters another woman's name in his sleep. Then I discover the Autumn Lord has a very special plan for me. But things go from bad to deadly when Karvanak—the Raksasa—returns. In order to get his greedy hands on both the fourth spirit seal and his former associate, Vanzir, he kidnaps Chase. Now we have to find a way to rescue the man I love without risking the safety of both Otherworld and Earth.

    excellent urban fantasy saga

    In Seattle, the three half Fae D¿Artigo sisters continue to work for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. Each has personal issues as Camille the good witch struggles with being an equal opportunity multi-species hunk magnet, Menolly is still adjusting to being a vampire; and Delilah the shapeshifting were-cat tries unsuccessfully to deny she has become a Death Maiden servant of the Autumn Lord as that makes her relationship with her human boyfriend Chase the police detective seem impossible.<BR/><BR/>Meanwhile Karvanak the Raksasas demon and his associate Vanzir the dream stealer have obtained the third Spirit Seal and are after the fourth. To achieve their objective they abduct Chase, who is already in Delilah¿s litter box for whispering some other woman¿s name in his sleep while lying with her. With the help of her sisters Delilah hopes to rescue Chase, but the Autumn Lord has demands for her too.<BR/><BR/>Once again in this excellent urban fantasy saga, the various types of paranormal species seem genuine and the good guys do not always win so expect the unexpected as the lead role rotates this time from Camille (see DRAGON WYTCH) to Delilah. In spite of the non-stop action that never slows down for a moment and the myriad of support cast that can be a bit distracting, NIGHT HUNTER superbly builds on threads from the previous ¿Sisters of the Moon¿ books; yet can be read as a stand alone. Yasmine Galenorn provides a strong entry as the love between the sisters and the males in their lives propel the D¿Artigo trio to do what they can to save Chase, but never lose sight of keeping safe the two worlds they have their feet standing in. <BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    A solid addition to the series

    Night Huntress / 978-1-440-65992-8

    The fifth in the "Sisters of the Moon" series, "Night Huntress" places us once again in the point of view of middle sister Delilah, as she struggles to sort out her relationship issues in the face of an oncoming potential apocalypse.

    Like the previous novel, "Night Huntress" contains a large dose of "middle-of-the-series" syndrome, as at least as much time (if not more) is spent dissecting Delilah's love life as if spent on the search for the spirit seals. This is tempered, however, by Delilah being a more sympathetic and realistic character to sink into, and the problems with her lovers (infidelity and love-vs-lust issues) are more complex and less quickly solved than her sister Camille's one-trick-pony solution to all her relationship problems.

    Bravely, Galenorn shakes things up a bit by making the search for the spirit seal the focus of the first half of the book, instead of the second, with the actual climax combining both a demonic showdown and some relationship drama all mixed in together. This choice breathes some fresh life into a series that otherwise seemed destined to follow the same format verbatim: Introduction, Relationship Drama, Spirit Seal, Repeat. The new format also serves to characterize the sisters as distinctly proactive forces, no longer just reacting to the demonic activity as supernatural firefighters.

    This freshness is somewhat undermined, however, in the constant struggle to move things forward for long time fans without leaving new readers behind. Of course, all authors want to be able to snag new readers at any point in the series, but "Night Huntress" crams in massive back-exposition and repetitive re-angst of all the difficulties that have gone before. Long-time readers of the series will no doubt become frustrated with the repetition - there's only so many ways to repeat the backstory of the previous four books, the childhood history exposition, and all the relationship drama that has gone before - and large swaths of the book feel like you're turning the pages to get to the actual *new* material.

    Overall, though, "Night Huntress" is a solid addition to the series, and even better than the previous entry (which also suffered from "middle-of-the-series" syndrome), and if you've stuck with it this far, I'm fairly confident you won't be disappointed. Chase-shippers may be disappointed with the character development (derailment?) that occurs for him in this novel, and the resolution may stick a little as a bit of a Family Unfriendly Aesop, but the overall plot is excellent and will keep you coming back for more.

    Night Huntress

    This was a very exciting book. Delilah is leading the group in trying to find the fourth Spirit Seal. Vanzir, a dream chaser and Roz, an incubus, we met in the last installment, are now new additional allies who have joined the fight to help stop Shadow Wing from gaining the seals. Karvanak, a minion of Shadow Wing, abducts Chase, in order to gain control of the sisters. There are great parts where Zach and Delilah¿s were interact. Those parts seem to have a natural flow. There¿s a lot of humor throughout. Roz and Menolly seemed to be getting quite close. It¿s great to see Menolly become a mama to Maggie. I really loved the story but some things simply irritated me. I have always hated Chase and Delilah together. He seems petty and jealous. In the first couple books in the series, he¿s actually trying to get into Camille¿s pants not Delilah¿s. Then all of a sudden he stops being this huge douche-bag and is serious about Delilah? His character is completely despicable and unredeemable, with the way he treated both Delilah and Erika. He doesn¿t deserve Delilah and his character is boring. One last complaint about him, he is so selfish in bed. The sex always seems to be Delilah doing all the work. All the focus is for Chase and he never seems to put out at all, just takes what¿s given and never reciprocates. Now Zach, he¿s a keeper. I hate the way Zach is tossed aside all the time. Even after what he did for Chase, Zach seems to be an after thought to Delilah. Like some idiot stand-in. How can Zach and Delilah¿s weres have mated but she¿s head-over-heels in love with Chase? It just doesn¿t make sense. Their were half is intense and is always there under the surface. There¿s no way she can ignore Zach like she does if they are indeed mated. Zach is a sexy alpha for christ sake, why would some ordinary jerk be enough for her to ignore her were-cat? Anyhoo, despite the inconsistencies w/ Zach and Chase this was still a great read. Extremely entertaining, with lots of action. I recommend this book as well as the entire series. I also look forward to Demon Mistress in June 2009.

    Night Huntress

    Great book kept me reading with no lag time. Enjoyed the directions the individual characters are taking while remaining true to the original plot. I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't read the first 4 books.

    Okay.

    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.

    I have really enjoyed this 5th book inthis series. It kept me really interested with the relationships between the characters. I also have never read any story about fai or half fai characters that were this entertaining or complex. I can't wait for the next one.

    I love this series. You get the best of the supernatural genre. The books are filled with every creature you can imagine, and some you might not have. The characters are well written, there are elements of mysetery and danger. IF romance is more your thing you won't be disappointed either! You'll find plenty of that. I highly recomend this series for anyone who enjoys paranormal romance/mystery. Miss. Galenorn will leave you wanting more.

    another great book from a great author

    As usual, yasmin comes through with another great addition to her series. Her books seem to be ones you curl up with and read cover to cover. My only complaint is that she doesnt write fast enough, I'm always looking forward to her next installment on this series!!!!! I hope her next series will be as great as this one is.

    Where is series heading???

    In the beginning I was so caught up in this series I could not wait for the next installment. I spent 8 years living in the Seattle area and it was fun to feel like I was actually part of the area again. However with this installment it is just the same old thing again, all of the alphabet soup is getting boring (FBH, ......)

    The characters are beginning to sound judgmental and just to "self righteous" I hope the next installment is a little more fleshed out and not so formulamatic, I really need more meat and less action.......and certainly less cutting edge slang.

    Night Huntress by Yasmine Galenorn

    Yasmine Galenorn's world settles in a bit with "Night Huntress". She doesn't introduce any new characters in this latest novel of her 'Sisters of the Moon' series, but instead she expands the parameters and relationships of the middle sister, Delilah. While Delilah's first book "Changeling" was more about the sisters' overall mission and Delilah's romance, this book is about Delilah coming to terms with her non-humanity and what that means to her lover. I found the book fascinating from that perspective and it's not often you find a paranormal heroine dealing with human relationship issues...usually it seems to be the other way around! Plus I liked the continuation of the overall storyline and advancing abilities of all the sisters Galnorn presented in "Night Huntress".<BR/><BR/>I guess, in a very wordy way, I'm saying if you already like this series I think you'll be very pleased with the latest. If you haven't already been reading the series, this book won't give you the best idea of what the whole series is about.

    Hold on to your catnip, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

    The fifth installment of Yasmine Galenorn¿s Sisters of the Moon/Otherworld series, Night Huntress, comes out of the gate with power and punch, and doesn¿t let up the pace. Fans of this deliciously wicked series will enjoy the newest developments in the sisters¿ lives, while new readers can jump on for a wild ride. <BR/>As in the past, each book centers primarily on one of the three D¿Artigo sisters, although no one is left out of the action. In Night Huntress, we learn more about Delilah, the middle sister. She¿s a werecat with deep connections to the Autumn Lord. She¿s also a vibrant, delightful woman who has very real, human problem with love and relationships. Ms. Galenorn manages to balance the story skillfully between livewire action, pointed moments of humor, human weakness and humane strength. <BR/>In this installment, the demon Karvanak has made a bold, potentially critical move that threatens the future of both worlds and loved ones. Choices must be made and lines of loyalty are drawn in the ever changing sands on the bridge between the worlds. Delilah must draw on all her skills, cunning and humanity to try to save the night for both the Fae and the Human world.<BR/>The paranormal aspects of the characters actually highlight all that is wonderful and human in each of them, and in turn, may let the reader see something of themselves in these characters. That is one of the great, sly gifts of this series; you get wicked, sexy, strong women; virile, alpha male types; rollercoaster action; and underneath it all, some basic revelations about what it is to be human in a sometime is inhumane world.<BR/>Hold on to your catnip; it¿s going to be a thrilling ride when Delilah goes hunting!
