    Eerie beginning to a new paranormal series

    Cicely Waters is a self-trained witch returning to her childhood home in Washington state. She may be the fulcrum in an eons old conflict between the Dark Fae and the vampires, a conflict which has claimed her Fae lover, family and friends, and possibly her home town.

    With her trademark sensuality, Yasmine Galenorn has created an eerie, threatening world. There is a sense of small town claustrophobia with danger roiling beneath the surface, doomed love, betrayal and desperate hope. I can hardly wait until the next installment.

    Fabulous Debut!

    Having enjoyed the authors Otherworld series, I figured I¿d give this new series a chance and I¿m so glad I did. This series is less romantic, a bit more series and a lot darker than the Otherworld series, which is what I¿ve always wished for the Otherworld series.

    The love the ¿lite¿ apocalyptic feel this story has. The entire town is completely enshrouded by a strong supernatural force and is completely cut-off from the rest of the world. Not only that, as the supernatural beachhead strengthens, it is slowly but surely gaining a foothold throughout the planet.

    The author successfully created a world where the monsters have free reign and are quickly spreading like an unstoppable virus. The forest/woods are dismal and gloomy with a feeling of danger and lurking around every corner.

    This book kept me so completely riveted I felt like I never wanted it to end. Cicely is a strong heroine who is tough, unafraid to use her powers to kill when necessary and NOT too-stupid-to-live. I can¿t wait to see how she gets herself out of the web of trouble that continually entangles her.

    I highly recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy fans and look forward to reading the next book Night Veil. For fellow SF fans, I would not categorize this book as SF-lite, however there is some time-travel involved.

    Why someone would compare this to twilight is be on me

    Yasmine has a way of making you not want to put down her books. This one is way darker than the otherworld series but, I only bought it because I like the other series. I was hoping it was different then then otherworld series and she went into a darker less sexy place. There is so much to this story that hasn't been written I can't wait till the next comes out. It's captivating and makes you feel for the bad guys as well. Definitely a must read.

    Great New Series

    Yasmine Galenorn created another fabulous story and a wonderful set of characters. NIGHT MYST is the first book in the new Indigo Court series, which promises to be just as action packed and magical as her Sisters of the Moon series. Following Cicely Waters, an elemental witch as she struggles to discover herself while uncovering a dark force that has taken over her hometown, NIGHT MYST combines magic and mysticism with a fair amount of drama and adventure.

    The one thing that I really love about Ms. Galenorn's books is her character development. The main plot of NIGHT MYST involves Cicely discovering the vampiric fae queen, MYST of the Indigo court. More dangerous than either vampires or fae, this deadly combination is definitely a force to be reckoned with. As we journey through the story and learn more about the dangers here, Ms. Galenorn gives us some good glimpses into Cicely and the troubled romance she has with the dark Grieve. Rather than just spouting out a quick backstory for Cicely, Ms. Galenorn weaves this into the book, allowing us to learn about Cicely just as she learns about herself. I found this method of pulling the reader into the story to be quite effective; it really helped bring the characters and story to life.

    Speaking of characters - did I already mention that I love Cicely as a character? The fact that she can control the wind just makes her that much more awesome to me. Her "sidekick" is her air elemental and this added dimension to the story is like the icing on the cake.

    As with her other books, Ms. Galenorn's writing style in NIGHT MYST is very clear and easy to read. She uses fairly realistic language and it is pretty easy to imagine someone sitting on the side of the road using the same dialogue that she gives her characters. Well, okay, perhaps minus the vampiric bloodsucking bit. At least I hope so anyway.

    I believe that fans of the Urban Fantasy or Paranormal genres will definitely find something to love in NIGHT MYST. This is a robust story that keeps the reader guessing and anticipating from page one all the way through to the end. Also, previous fans of Ms. Galenorn's will be happy to note that this new series looks to be just as good as her others. I highly recommend it and am anxious to see where the story is going to go in future books.

    An entertaining tale that introduces the reader to a world filled with mythological species and magic

    With the murder of Marta the witch whose throat was ripped apart and the death two years ago of her mother Krystal, Cicily Walters can come home as her reawakening wolf wants to. She inherits Marta's magic business. This would mean finally returning to her hometown New Forest, Washington after two decades on the road with mom. Reluctantly, she feels the time is right.

    In New Forest, something strange is happening to the magic born. They are either dying or vanishing. The NFPD ignores what is going on to some of the citizens as does the vampire overlord. Worse, Cicily senses a different nefarious shadow lingering as fear owns the Cascades town. Cicily's friend, Fae prince Grieve tells her to leave if she is smart and her aunt has been abducted and allegedly has become a blood thrall to the vampires; if she still lives. Not heeding Grieve's advice, Cicily fights back but the fae-vampires are coming for her too.

    The first Indigo Court urban fantasy is an entertaining tale that introduces the reader to a world filled with mythological species and magic. Cicily is a solid person who has doubts about coming home after her mom fled town with her as a child and replacing Marta. However, the rest of the cast feels overwhelmed by too much insight into the rules of magic and what each paranormal species can do. Still the opening supernatural war is fun to read. Myst has begun the end of days that will leave her ruling the world.

    Great New Series comes out of the myst

    Fans of Ms. Galenorn's Otherworld series will recognize her gift for creating strong female characters and intricate world mythology. New readers should delight in the introduction to these qualities consistent within all of Ms. Galenorn's books.
    This is a dark story, steeped in the feel of old, almost feral magics. Unlike the Otherworld books, this series is told from just one point of view, Cicely, natural born witch. She is drawn back home when events point to directed assaults upon the magical members of her old home town. Old fights and past loves wait for Cicely, in addition to friends of her childhood.
    Ms. Galenorn creates a new sort of vampire - Vampiric Fae, or fairies - and the blending of the two create a wholly new, deadly, seductive and vicious sort of species. This isn't your teenager's Twilight Saga.
    I can't wait to make my next visit, and see where Ms. Galenorn leads us, next...

    Its not another Twilight!!!

    What cought my attention for this book was the concept of vampiric fae. I thought "Finally! Someone did what I was thinking!" I bought both this book and the next in series with some concern that if I didn't like this book, I'd have wasted my money on the second one. Now I'm glad I did because I'm chsrging upstairs to get it as soon as I'm done here.
    Anyways, I like how Cicely and her cousin were writen. They are strong in their own ways, and I finally wasn't thinking "oh suck it up and deal." like I have with some other books, *cough cough*. I'm also a fan of the bad guys in the series, it might atually besad to see them go. Each of these characters has their own flavor to them, and are vivd, three-dimentional characters. I also like how Ms Galenorn explained how the vampiric fae came about, as well as how they are different from normal vamps. These fae are a new creation all their own, and I like how it was done.

    This series is a lot darker than the books Yasmine wrote earlier.
    I like stories in a lighter vain.

    Great Paranormal Read

    I have been a fan of the sisters of the moon series so I decided to check out her new series. Now I cant wait for the next one to come out. The main character is Cicely Waters a witch who can control the wind. She is another strong woman character. The supporting characters are great. You follow Cicely and her friends through an adventure against the vampire fae to rescue her Aunt and a friend. Along the way she has to get help from some people she would rather not deal with. And of course there is the love of her life Grieve who she came back home to be with. Over all it is a great read.

    Good Read

    This was a great book. It was interesting and kept my attention but I wouldn't call it extremely page turning. There wasn't the biggest explanation of what some of the creatures/people are (like a Fae) and I am still not entirely sure what a Fae exactly is like I know what a Vampire or were-puma is. Overall, this is worth reading. It has a strong story line and it gets you attached to the characters and what they are going through. It is not short on action and trouble. I cannot wait for the next one, Night Veil (as the author states), to come out to see what happens.
