All over Seattle, humans have been going missing, only to turn up as newborn vampires - the sure sign of a rogue vamp on the loose. It looks like Dredge is to blame - the same sadistic Dredge who gave me my scars, and who may well be in cahoots with the demon Shadow Wing. If so, Otherworld and Earth are screwed.

I am a HUGE fan of Galenorn's "Sisters of the Moon" series- Menolly was never my favorite character in the last two books so I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy this one as much as the first two. Thankfully, I was wrong and this one ended up being my favorite! Menolly's story is darker in tone, we found out exactly what kind of sexual and violent torture she endured at Dredge's hands and it is horrific. She deals with her attraction to a new woman in her life while dealing with her scars (both physical and emotional) from her turning on top of their battle against Shadow Wing.

The highlight of the book to me was we FINALLY get to go into the other world! The descriptions were absolutely mesmerzing, and I wished I could have spent the rest of the book there. This novel was satisfying on its own but also set up the next book, Dragon Wytch, well. We're now very familiar with all the sisters, so the story has started to really kick into gear with the coming war. Highly recommended and remember- it's urban fantasy- NOT paranormal romance! (Why the publishers labeled it that I'll never know...)

I liked Darkling better than Witchling, but not as much as Changeling. I've put in requests for the next book in the series, but I'll be reposting my copies and I wouldn't buy them

The stories aren't bad, but the author seems to be settling into some habits that I'm not sure I appreciate. Each story takes a long story to start into the real plot and each sister is being pushed into a triangle. I'm not against character driven multiples but these seem forced and unnecessary.

I was expecting a romance. It is not a romance. I would guess that it doesn't fit neatly into any genre. It did keep me turning the pages though.

I was not happy with this book at all. It turned my stomach, frankly and I could not bring myself to finish reading it. Maybe I'm a prude. I can tolerate and even enjoy gay material if it's tastefully done, but this story did not do "tasteful" by a long shot. Each to his/her own, I guess.

This book was good. The basic "formula" is there but that's ok. The story is engaging and kept me reading. Overall this is a good series.
