Book Description

Feb. 8 2011 Sisters of the Moon (Book 9)
We're the D'Artigo sisters: half-human, half-Fae. We're sexy, we're savvy, and we just turned in our badges to the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch. Delilah's a werecat and blossoming Death Maiden. And as for me? I'm Menolly, acrobat-extraordinaire-turned-vampire. But being a vamp isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when the Godfather of all vampires decides to play Prince Charming...

It's the holiday season, and a vampire serial killer is on the loose. Hungry ghosts are tearing up the town, and people are running scared. I strike a deal with Ivana Krask—one of the Elder Fae—and, too late, discover strings are attached. But when I turn to Roman, one of the oldest, most powerful vampires around, for help, he offers me more than I ever bargained for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Installment Feb. 1 2011
By A Book Obsession.. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
When a vampire serial killer starts rampaging through the city, Menolly knows it's only a matter of time before the humans start fighting back in retaliation, putting all vamps in danger. She sets out to stop the killer before he finds another victim, but when the group tracks him to a section of the city with some serious poltergeist activity, she quickly realizes they are way over their heads. She seeks out Roman, a ancient vampire, and asks him for help. He agrees, but his price comes at a shock to Menolly. Never would she have thought she would have caught this ancient's eye, but now he has her in his sights, and he doesn't want to let go.

Menolly has grown so much from the beginning of the series. In fact, all of the girls have made a lot of character progression, but I think Menolly may have grown the most. In this book, she seems to finally be accepting herself; all of herself. While her werepuma lover, Narissa, has a lot to do with her self acceptance, it's Roman that gets Menolly to take that final step. By being someone who can handle her when she lets herself go completely, it is almost like a huge burden is lifted off her shoulders. Before him, she had no one to allow herself to simply let loose without the fear of causing serious damage. I'm glad she will be able to balance all of the sides of herself and finally be at peace.

Due to Delilah's injuries from the previous book, we don't get to see too much of her in this one. However, as much as I love seeing all three girls worked together, Delilah really earned her rest, and I can't complain about her taking a back seat. That being said, both Menolly and Camille get their own set of troubles, and man some of them are doosies. Things are happening that will forever change the group dynamic; not just with the sisters and Iris, but their brood of men as well. Menolly is especially worried about them growing apart, but I don't think that is what will happen. I think the girls are each coming into their own, and while their paths may be different, nothing can break their bond. I think the dynamic between the three girls is the best thing about this series, and really makes them amazing books.

This book was full of heart pounding action. Once it started, I could only hold on and enjoy the ride. This is definitely my favorite Menolly book, if not the best one out of the entire series. While the fight against Shadow Wing was only a background threat in this book, the danger the group experiences was by no way any less than the previous books. In fact, some pretty major events occurred that set things in action. Some of which I am almost afraid to read about in the next book, as the repercussions will be steep. However, some events seem to be leading to good things, making this book a good balance of danger, yet potential hope for the future. I absolutely loved every minute of this book, and am so eagerly awaiting the next one's release. Definitely one of those series you want to check out if you haven't already. For fans of the series, you won't want to miss this installment!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Review contains spoilers May 8 2011
By Serene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

Menolly is a former acrobat and spy, who was turned into a vampire by a demented sire. Although born half-fae, she lives on Earth with her two siblings. They have a charming Victorian and fight crime along with their various friends and love interests. She is bisexual and has a long term relationship with a were-puma named Nerissa. She also has begun to date a vampire named Roman on the side.

This book was a pleasant surprise. I found it quite entertaining and I thought some of the characters were well portrayed. For instance, I adore the sisters Menolly and Camille. I like the demon twins. I like Trillian and Morio. Iris and even Maggie have grown on me. I'm interested in these characters, and want to know what happens in their story arcs. Menolly's book also has plenty of action and there is a nice balance of action and adventure.

Good Points
* Menolly is a tough cookie. She can take care of herself, but isn't afraid to show her feelings.

* There is plenty of action. Even though she has a big handicap (she's undead and has to drink blood and sleep during the day), Menolly still manages to do her share and more of investigating crime and taking down the bad guys.

* I found the subplot involving Vanzir and Camille shagging interesting. I am curious to see how that bombshell plays out.

* I was sympathetic to Morio and his injuries, and glad he recovered. Although I am curious about the consequences of the injection of vamp blood.

* I liked the author redeeming Wade.

* I appreciated the break from the `daddy hates Camille and now we hate daddy' plot device. It just seems overwrought to me.

* I like that Nerissa seems fairly normal for a girlfriend. She isn't overpowered like the other character's love interests. She's a normal woman with a normal job, who happens to be were. I appreciated the fact that she isn't heading into combat like all the other character's significant others.

* I liked the Ivana character. She was enjoyable and intriguing. I hope to see more of her.

* Sassy subplot took an interesting twist, and was resolved in an edgy way.

* I actually think Wade and Menolly have chemistry. I found that intriguing.

Irritations:

* Del's relationship with Shade which we see in the background, is still pretty irritating. It is poorly developed and the `love at first sight' thing grates on my nerves. Having characters remark on how awesome the relationship is does not make it awesome. It just makes it annoyingly overhyped.

* Roman- I just don't get the attraction. He's an older guy, married 30+ times. He kills humans and doesn't care much about anyone but himself. Not hot. His family, particularly his mother is downright evil, and he represents a monarchist viewpoint that has never really worked out well for the girls. Menolly embracing him, and his lifestyle when she's never really conformed seems a bit out of character. Especially when she was so abused by a powerful evil male vampire. Also he just isn't very likeable or attractive to me. I know this is a matter of taste, but so far I think he's not that interesting. I also think he'll drive a wedge between her and Nerissa.

* The consort thing? Way too soon, and frankly a bit too convenient. We already have one sister who is the consort to a god. Plus it seemed a wee bit controlling of Roman. Menolly's totally compliant agreement that this should happen seemed more like something Del would do and has done (See Harvest Hunting). She doesn't resist at all. It seemed odd that Menolly would simply cave to this without a qualm or hesitation. It also is a bit selfish of Menolly. This will impact both her and Nerissa's life and Nerissa should be part of the decision making process.

* Not every spouse should be so excited about sharing their lover. While I get that the fae are polygamous, neither Roman nor Nerissa are Fae, and Nerissa's acceptance of the whole situation seemed a bit convenient for Menolly. Romance should never be about giving the character exactly what he/she wants. This rang a false not to me. Having everyone so agreeable doesn't make a good story and in fact minimizes the secondary characters feelings.

* CHASE. Not every characters should be psychic or paranormal... I prefer Chase to be a normal as possible to counter-balance the girls and their powers. Plus, the guy got way too much face time in this. Time for him to get his own book. And no, despite Menolly telling us she thinks he's a great guy, they've conveniently overlooked his actions a few books back.

* Too often the author uses her characters to voice opinions on how the reader should feel about a situation. Menolly likes Chase- the reader should like him- everyone thinks Shade is awesome- the readers should think so- everyone hates daddy- the readers should as well. No other viewpoint displayed, except the exact same opinion parroted by her characters. Opinions should vary some. Not everyone should be enthused and excited about the same people or events. Having every character parrot whatever opinion the author wishes to express is boring. For instance, NONE of the sisters question the fact that Del- the naivest of the bunch has fallen head over heels for Shade a man she barely knows and now he's living at the house? Umm.. Could the guy be a spy? Variety isn't just the spice of life. It is the way to make the characters interesting.

* Relationships continue to be on the fairly weak side. Author skirts the issue of Jealousy and sexual betrayal by making nearly everyone seemingly embrace polyfidelity. This would be okay for FAE. But, not everyone should be so kosher. There is little variety in the love interests beyond blind devotion to their main squeeze. Negative personality traits besides over-protectiveness rarely showcased, everyone likes nearly everyone else, and there is no tension, expectations, or hurt feelings.

* Camille's more interesting plot devices once again bled over into another book. This is both a negative and a positive, since Camille's subplots Vanizir and Morio were simply more interesting than Menolly's situation. So while I'm not complaining about Camille's plots, I'm just saying her stories are almost always more interesting than what her sisters are up to.

* The ending was weak. I had no real interest in Terrence, so the vampire rumble just was kind of meh.

Should you read it? This book is an adult book. It contains adult situations and graphic shagging. If you like vampires, Fae politics, and shagging, and don't mind sometimes shallow romantic development then you will enjoy this. I felt this one- despite its flaws- was one of Galenorn's better books.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars, best Menolly book so far Feb. 22 2011
By A. Flannery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Blood Wyne has to be the best Menolly book so far in this series. I enjoyed getting a deeper look into her personality beyond her being brutalized & turned. There is quite a bit of character growth in this book for her- and the rest of the extended "family". Some storylines were introduced and others, particularly Wade's, was revisited (I won't say resolved, because I think he'll be on stage more after this book.) and I think his character was better fleshed out. There are casualties as happen in life and war, which I personally think keeps the world realistic seeming.

5.0 out of 5 stars super urban fantasy Feb. 5 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Like her two half-fae Sisters of the Moon sisters (Camille the witch - see Bone Magic; and Delilah the werecat/werepanther - see Harvest Hunting) Menolly D'Artigo the Vampire has resigned as an Otherworld Intelligence Agency field operative. The trio believes they will have more flexibility and less bureaucracy fighting the Otherworld invaders. Meanwhile she and Nerissa the werepuma are in love.

However, Menolly also cannot sit idly by when she learns a vampiric serial killer is murdering hookers. She fears the backlash by humans to vampires and other paranormals, so she plans to act before the mob mentality sets in. Tracking down the killer should be as all she has to do is follow the blood trail. However, nasty ghosts get involved mucking up her investigation. Menolly asks powerful vampire Roman to help her find the predator. He agrees for a fee; she must acquiesce to being his consort even as his mother ancient Vampire Queen Blood Wyne is returning to gain control of the undead population.

The ninth Sisters of the Moon urban fantasy is a superb thriller that continues to be fresh by the rotation of prime focus between the siblings. This time Menolly the most complicated sister with her extreme mental issues is caught up in her new world of vampirism. This forces her to choose between the lesser of evil at a time in which her species breaking into a bloody civil war seems imminent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series - one of my favorites Feb. 23 2011
By Emily Iverson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is definitely one of my favorite urban fantasy series. Although not completely convinced after book one, curiosity got the better of me, and the characters in this series have subsequently continued to grow and leave me excited for the next adventure. They are fun, fast reads and Blood Wyne was no exception being told from the point of view of Menolly, the youngest of the three sisters. Menolly happens to be a five-foot-one acrobatic bi faerie turned vampire with a soft spot for gargoyles.

I would recommend reading the whole series, though the book can be read as its own entity. Pure, fun, pulp fiction. The reason I gave it four stars rather than five is 1) Delilah is my favorite sister; her POV books get the 5 star rating ;P 2) this is definitely fun fantasy, not Dostoevsky and 3) the sex scenes are a bit too run on and graphic for me, but for some people that would be a plus, and anyway I can just skim those pages to lead me right to more urban-fantasy-action-adventure-save-the-world-from-evil good time read. I like this series as a break from all the hard headed macho women in many of the other urban fantasy series, who can really get on my nerves. I gave up on Anita Blake after book 5 because I just wanted to punch the woman. The D'Artigo sisters have a certain softness that is quite a relief, yet I still get my shapeshifters, vampires, faeries and more. Totally excited for the next installment!
