Shadow Rising

Otherworld, #12

Just in time for Menolly and Nerissa’s promise ceremony, all hell breaks loose again. The sisters are summoned to Otherworld to meet with Queen Asteria where they find out Shadow Wing has sent a wicked necromancer to start the wars and the Lord of Ghosts is Earthside trying to gain control of the magical beings there. Caught up in the whirlwind of kicking demon ass doesn’t leave a lot of time for Menolly to do any planning. Save the world first, design floral arrangements later!

Menolly has always been my favorite of the sisters. She’s tough, cunning, beautiful and will do anything it takes to get the job done…even at the risk of her love life. Thank God she has Nerissa. The woman has Menolly’s back no matter what. We’re introduced to Telazhar, the necromancer. He’s evil incarnate. Determined to restart the Scorching Wars, he’ll stop at nothing to destroy the D’Artigo sisters and their extended family to get what he wants. I’m on the fence about Gulakah, the Lord of Ghosts. I’m with the sisters’…be careful who you trust. I want to think he’s ultimately good, but from the previous stories, we all know the changes of that (haha). I’ve been a fan of this series from the very start and each story, to me, just keeps getting better. Danger, drama, passion and magic are what makes this such an addicting story. I can’t get enough of Menolly and Nerissa by extension. They’re sweet and sexy together. At no point did the storyline plummet, instead more and more kept happening, leaving me on the edge of my seat. The characterization of everyone is spot on and never falters. As much as I loved the non-stop action, I couldn’t wait to find out if Menolly and Nerissa would get their happily ever after. You’ll need to read to find out!

Book Blurb for Shadow Rising

We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy ex-operatives from the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. Being half human, half-Fae means our powers go haywire at all the wrong times. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch, with three gorgeous husbands. My sister Delilah is a two-faced werecat and a Death Maiden. And me? I'm Menolly, a jian-tu turned vampire, and I'm dating a sexy werepuma and the godfather of vampires. Unfortunately, life is about to get very, very nasty...

Nerissa and I can't decide on what we want to do for our promise ceremony and we're bickering like an old married couple. My sisters and I head to Otherworld for a meeting with Queen Asteria, where we discover that Shadow Wing has dispatched Telazhar to reignite the Scorching Wars. And as soon as we return back home, we find Gulakah, the Lord of Ghosts, waging a battle to control the magical beings over Earthside. Caught between two terrible enemies in a battle spanning two worlds, we can only hope we're in time to stop all-out annihilation.
