Autumn Whispers by Yasmine Galenorn

The Sisters of the Moon, Book 14

Synopsis: We’re the D’Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch with three sexy husbands. My sister Menolly is a vampire married to a wildly hot werepuma. And me? I’m Delilah, a two-faced werecat and Death Maiden. The Supe Community is in danger and now it’s up to us to unravel a mystery to which we may not want the answers…

When two vampiric software engineers approach us about a missing colleague, we don’t expect to find much. But then Grandmother Coyote steps in and our simple missing persons case rapidly devolves into a nightmare of debauchery, slavery, and corporate greed. Now, we must infiltrate and destroy an underground organization of influential men, led by the mysterious Lowestar Radcliff, before they discover we’re on to them. But one misstep puts our whole operation and our lives in peril, and I must unleash my powers as a Death Maiden, even if it means destroying someone I love.

Review: I have a rather adversarial relationship with this series. Some volumes are good and others less, but it’s true that it’s not a series that manages to take me completely away. Yet here I am with the fourteenth volume (but you can also note that I have not read all the volumes in the series, there is still some large gaps between each novel I read). And I must say with great surprise, that it was pretty good compared to the last one I read. We also have many things here and we follow with pleasure a large number of events that takes us throughout the story.

We thus find Delilah this time. I think I can say that this is the character that I prefer to follow as she is more posed than the other two in a sense. From the beginning of the story, we fall directly in one of her mission as a Death Maiden. And when she takes the soul with her, she sees some events in the life of the man, but she certainly did not expect that these images would help her as much for the rest of the story. Yes, because I must say I was really impressed by the number of things that are initiated here. Between the arrival of the Iris babies, a missing woman, a war breaking out in Otherworld, multiple attacks, the fire in the Menolly bar and the investigation of an evil building, they will really have to do a lot. I also confess that I was wondering how everything was going to be set in one novel, and the answer is quite easy: it won’t. Yes because I have to say that I didn’t expect some big intrigues starting on several volumes so late in a series like that but it is also a good idea to keep the reader in suspense for the other volumes.

Delilah is still evolving in all these novels, and she knows it. From the innocent and naive woman to become someone who begins to understand how the world really is. However, I found that she needed more to see and understand the blackness of what people are capable of. But of course, she is also always surrounded by her family: her sisters who are always there for her and of course Shade who would do anything for her. I love the relationship they have together, it is very refreshing. In regard of the plots, it was really intriguing, and I admit that I was really curious to find out where the friend of the two vampires was gone and I did not expect that, but we still have so much to discover and I wonder where author account to lead us.

It is therefore with great pleasure that I can say that the novel was a very enjoyable read and I want now to immerse myself in the next volume to know the end of it.

  1. You have such patience with serial books, Melliane! I get bored easily so I try not to pay attention to a lot of PNR books. I’m glad there’s much improvement and growth in this one.

    I hope the next one will be just as good!

  2. I dont have the best of luck with fae books. I seem to pick up all the crappy ones haha. I also haven’t read one in a LONG time – this one sounds pretty good and I like the half fae half human aspect.

  3. That’s a LOT of books but I have the same relationship with Skenyon’s Dark Hunter books. The last 3 were huge let downs but I read Styxx is really good.

    Anyway, at least you haven’t given up on the series and good job in keeping the review and your thoughts objective.

  4. Yay! I always love reading vampire and fairy stories even if they have been told a lot of times and in different ways. This one really sounds good especially with the intriguing plot. Don’t we all want that?

    But what? This is already the 14th book? I don’t think I’d be able to follow a series that large. Haahahha. Kudos to you for sticking with this book through and through.
