Overview

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their power. Instead, they created a demonic enemy more powerful than they dared to dream. Bent on enslaving the world, the Vampiric Fae have been quietly massing their strength for centuries. Now, Myst, queen of the Indigo Court, is rising again...and a long-prophesied war is brewing. Born a witch, Cicely Waters can control the wind. When her Elemental warns her that her aunt and cousin are in danger, she packs her Pontiac GTO and returns home for the first time in twenty years. But the magical town of New Forest, Washington, has changed. The Indigo Court holds the city in fear, people are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. Swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with her trusted childhood friend Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover. But Grieve has become enslaved by Myst's court, and now both lovers must walk a fine line to survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae Queen. Caught between two evils, both vying for supremacy, Cicely must fight for her family and her future. As she discovers the hidden secrets to her own heritage, will she lose her soul in the process?

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.

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.

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.

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...

I had a scathing in depth review about how horrible this book is, paragraphs detailing everything that was wrong with it. I then reflected on what I had typed out and thought as the old adage goes 'keep it simple, stupid.' So in a nutshell, the book is all over the place. The heroine's actions don't make sense. She is rash and angry when she should think clear headed and afraid when she should stand tall. She leads her friends and family into danger without any clear way of protecting them. She exclaims about how she knows almost nothing about her magical ability and yet relies on it for almost everything. And literally stops what she's doing to walk out into the middle of a dangerous wooded area to pick up one more magical ability that she doesn't fully grasp. Issues are brought up and then left hanging to never be returned to. The back story is weak at best and explanations are long incoming, the reader has to do most of the work guessing as to the rhyme or reason for any action made. The writing is good but the character development needs redeveloping or maybe just developing to begin with, a return to the drawing board this time with pencil and pen instead of finger paint. Ouch I know, but for real, I have no idea why this book got so many stars.

I like to go into a series knowing nothing about it. Whether its good or not. It makes the reading experience even better. And wit this, it was just that. 3.5 for the most part and then near the end it slowly got to a 4. So you could say this is both 3.5 and 4 stars for me. The cover I kind of like, though mostly for the tattoos and the forest background. Not a fan of the whole girl standing, posing on the cover. But still, the book was pretty good for the most part. I liked the MC, I liked the other characters, the story was also good and of course the pacing really helped moved the story along. I couldn't help but be reminded of the Cassie series for some reason. Especially the character of Grieve. Not that that's a bad thing. Looking forward to reading more from this series. About time, I kept up with my list urban fantasy series to read.

I just finished reading Night Myst. It is a paranormal written by Yasmine Galenorn. Cicely Waters is a witch with an affinity for the wind element. She’s been on the run with her mother for all her life. When the wind tells her that her aunt and cousin are in danger, she rushes back home. What she goes home to shocks her in more than one way. I really loved this book. I have to be honest. I have read this book once about three or four years ago. I re-read it because I have finally tracked down the rest of the series. I also re-read it because I wanted to give my review for it. I was hooked on this book the first time I read it and this time wasn’t any different. I loved how all the characters are relatable. I love how I felt what the characters were feeling. There wasn’t really anything that I didn’t like about this book. There were some parts that I wish had been explained more, but it was understandable with the explanation that was laid down. That’s all I can really think of that was wrong with the book. I have a feeling that this will become one of my favorite series. I fully recommend this book. I especially recommend it to those who like paranormals. Especially paranormals that focus on magic. I was hooked on this book. I’ve already started on the second book! I hope everybody who reads it enjoys it as much as I do. I’m so glad that I got a chance to read this book and can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

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.
