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.-------------- Harriet Klausner

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.

This part of the Series that's told from mel's point of view is always entertaining and keeps an open mind about things its not fixed into a certain perceptive she keeps things interesting and doesn't bored with echoes that we see in other series.

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.

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.

Nice but not spectacular. Lots of unnecessary sex (nothing against sex in books, but don't overdo it). A lot of zombie bashing and fighting with this sister. Plenty of things to wonder about until the next part comes out.On reread, I liked the adventure better.

Demon Mistress is a dark ride through dark eyes. Menolly's outlook is so much darker than her sister's, but it seems more real in a way. Darkling was darker than Demon Mistress, but it had to be. With Demon Mistress you finally get a chance to see Menolly beginning to heal from years in a very dark place. The struggle with the demonkin is still there, and the overall storyline continues to move forward, and leaves me excited to find out more about what happens when the spotlight shifts and Camille and her brood of husbands take over.

I have enjoyed this series immensely, especially the books focusing on Menalie or Delilah. This one focuses on Menalie, who is half human/half fae and a vampire.

I'm not sure if there are more continuity errors/inconsistencies than in previous books or if I'm just noticing them, but they were kind of distracting. It's a fast read, with a mix of dark, funny and kind of stupid. Good for those days you don't want to think too much.
