Darkling by Yasmine Galenorn (Otherworld Book 3)

What was this book about?

Three sisters, all part fae-part human, each with their own talents must help protect earth and the otherworld from evil. There is Camille, a half witch. Second sister, Delilah, transforms into a tabby cat when she is under stress. Finally, there is Menolly, who after a horrible assignment gone wrong is turned into a vampire. Menolly (and her sisters) must find a way of stopping whatever is turning humans into vamps. They think Dredge, the vampire that originally turned Menolly in a very cruel way, may be to blame. They need to find Dredge and also see if he is in cahoots with Shadow Wing (the evil force that is threatening Earth and the Otherworld). They must defeat him before they can move on.

What was your favorite part about this book?

I like the Otherworld/Earth story. It is interesting (and viable if these things existed) to think that there would have to be some sort of governing body to keep these things in line. So the Otherworld Intelligence Agency seems like a reasonable step.

What was your least favorite part about this book?
I truly thought this series was a three book series. I don’t know what gave me that impression – but I did. It probably had to do with the fact that each sister had a book (in the first three books) then it looks like each sister gets another book. It is more of a rotating point of view, with each book telling part of a new story in their perspective. So knowing that would have helped. I thought they were going to have to rush the ending in order to get through everything.

What genre would you consider this?


Overall: B, I liked the first two books better.

If you want a classic romance this is not the series for you. It has lesbianism, group sex, and things of that nature mentioned in regards to the sisters relationships.
