Demon Mistress

The D’Artigo Sisters are half human, half Fae and work for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency as operatives.  The oldest sister is Camille who is a Moon Witch and has three lovers; Trillian, Smokey and Morio.  The middle sister Delilah is a werecat and shifts when scared or upset.  She is in an on and off again relationship with Chase.  The youngest sister Menolly is a vampire and is involved with Nerissa but also has her eye on Roz and Vanzir. 

While cleaning out one of the rooms at her bar, Menolly finds an old journal that used to belong to a bartender there, an elf named Sabele.  It’s written in Melosealfor, a rare language from the Otherworld.  Discovering the diary leads Menolly to look for Sabele’s boyfriend to give him the journal and find out what ever happened to Sabele.  But when Menolly finds out that he hasn’t seen her in years and that she left him right before they were supposed to get married, she starts to wonder if something more dangerous happened to the elf. 

When Chase calls the sisters to help him figure out what happened to two Faes that were found dead without any apparent reasoning, the three sisters come running to the rescue.  Apparently something is feeding on the life source of Faes until it drains them and they die.  While trying to fight this ghoul, Delilah is attacked and her life becomes in grave danger. 

If things weren’t complicated enough, Menolly discovers a frat house of FBH (full blooded humans) who seem to have a lot of connections to the Otherworld.  When their connection is linked to Shadow Wing, the sisters realize these kids must be stopped.  They have no idea what they are messing with and are going to cause catastrophic destruction if Shadow Wing is released on Earth.

Will Menolly be able to find out what happened to Sabele, defeat the soul sucking ghoul, protect Delilah from the ghoul, and prevent Shadow Wing from taking over?  Will Menolly’s sisters and friends make it out of this mission alive?

Demon Mistress is the sixth story in the Otherworld Series and the second book starring Menolly D’Artigo, half Fae, half human, vampire.  The first book that I started with was Darkling, Menolly’s story, so I was very excited to read Demon Mistress since it stars my favorite D’Artigo Sister.  I adore Yasmine Galenorn’s writing and found this book to be a lot of fun even though nothing big really happens to shake up the sisters’ lives.  The story moves along at a fast pace with plenty of fight scenes and romance to keep things interesting.  I enjoyed the frat boys’ story since it’s interesting to see evil can happen with mere humans and not just vampires and Otherworld beings.

Menolly is still dealing with her pain over Dredge and trying to figure out her feelings for Roz.  Nerissa is back and still in Menolly’s life but she still has a need for a man also.  The imaginative world that comes alive for me when I open a Yasmine Galenorn book is endless.  There’s always something new to be discovered with each new installment and I loved every page of Demon Mistress. I highly recommend reading this series in order starting with the first book Witchling. Overall,  The Otherworld Series is fantastic and if you haven’t read a book in this series yet, you are seriously missing out!

We're the D'Artigo Sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we're savvy--and sexy--operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch whose magic is as unpredictable as the weather. My sister Delilah transforms into a tabby cat at the worst possible times. And me? I'm Menolly, acrobat-extraordinaire-turned-vampire. And if the nerds from hell don't get their act together, I'm going to turn their toga party into a bloodbath...

Life's getting stranger by the minute. First, Iris and I unearth a diary from one of the bartenders at the Wayfarer who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. And when I discover a ghoul in the woods near our home, we know there has to be a necromancer nearby--another sign that something's wrong. But the blood really hits the fang when we discover a secret society bent on winning Shadow Wing's favor. Now it's up to us to stop the chaos they've unleashed on the city, and to prevent the demon they summoned from devouring Delilah's soul...
