The Sisters of the Moon, Book 13
Synopsis: We’re the D’Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Delilah is a two-faced werecat and a Death Maiden. My sister Menolly is a vampire married to a werepuma. And me? I’m Camille, a wicked-good witch with three sexy husbands. I’m a priestess of the Moon Mother, and I’m training under the Queen of Darkness. Unfortunately, playing in the dark means that sometimes you stumble over secrets better left buried…
There’s a new Fae sorcerer in town—Bran, the son of Raven Mother and the Black Unicorn—and I’m the unwilling liaison between him and our new Earthside OIA. With cemeteries being ransacked and spirits being harvested by a sinister, otherworldly force, Aeval sends us to rescue the missing wife of a prominent member of the Fae nobility. Our search leads us to the mysterious Aleksais Psychic Network and, ultimately, to face the Lord of Ghosts where Morio and I must undergo a ritual that will plunge us directly into the world of the dead.
Review: I have not read all the volumes of the series but I’ve read several ones. Indeed, it was not really difficult to understand or take the story where I left it. I must say that all the volumes follow the same frame, so when we understand where the story is leading, we can enter each volume without any problems.
I have a strange feeling about this series. I think the ideas are very good and at the same time I can’t really understand the characters or their problems. So it’s true that I’m still a little behind compared to what is happening. I enjoyed the 11th volume and I thought it would be the same with this one. But it is true that it has not really been the case. It is not bad either, even far from that. But ultimately my feeling is still the same. This is an interesting series, but I still do not manage to hang on to whatever happens.
The sisters face many personal problems, but in addition to that, some cemeteries are looted and many spirits disappear without a trace. So this is up to our heroines to understand what is happening. Our young women have evolved a lot through the novels and it’s true that it’s nice to see them happy and fulfilled although it is sometimes quite difficult. But then they have to deal with many events, new informations are revealed here. Each girl has her own life and tries somehow to help. I enjoyed seeing all the Camille’s husbands. They are always explosive and dynamic and it was fun to attend their interactions. The end was also a nice surprise and it’s true that I’m still curious to see what will happen now.
If you like the series, this book is for you, because it is in the same vein as the others.
