HASH(0xa14449b4) out of 5 stars As long as you fear, you are at their mercy Jan. 8 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Menolly is the third D'Artigo sister, the dark one. Since she was attacked by Dredge and made into a vampire, she sleeps by day--if nightmares are what anyone would call restless sleep. More than anything, she fears her demon nature and has made her sister Camille promise to stake her if she gets out of control.

When her sister's boyfriend, Chase, the head of the Faerie Human Crime Scene Investigation Unit of Seattle, comes into the Wayfarer covered in blood, she knows there's trouble. Coming in with blood to a supernatural bar is tantamount to offering yourself for dinner.

There's trouble afoot. Across the street at the local vintage theatre, there are four dead bodies and they've been drained by vampires. The bodies disappear before they can be collected and handled properly unleashing new vampires on the city.

Dredge has managed to cross over from Faery to Earth and he's plotting again to set up a vampire colony and make himself King. As each night passes, the vampires he's made are making more loyal subjects.

It's up to Menolly and her sisters to stop him. And as Grandmother Coyote says to Menolly: "You will have to do something you would never do..."

This book pushes my limits for violent content. Dredge's making of Menolly was particularly vicious and left the immortal vampire both physically and mentally scarred. In my opinion, this third novel has the best character development of the other three. I like Menolly as the "Blade of Justice". The rule suits her well.

There are elements from classical myths here: Grandmother Coyote, Morgaine, her lover Arturo, and Mordred as well as others make appearances. My deduction for the one star is because these novels tend to stir in a lot of characters into the mix without fully developing the world.

"Darkling" is the third book in Ms. Galenorn's serial novels about the D'Artigo sisters. For the most part, this story stands alone; however, if you really enjoy the world Galenorn has created, you may want to read the other two novels as well.

HASH(0xa1444e34) out of 5 stars Otherworld #3 Jan. 2 2008
By Detra Fitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The D'Artigo sisters, Camille, Delilah, and Menolly, are half-Fae, half-human operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency (O.I.A.) Camille is a Witch. Delilah is a Changeling Death Maiden. Menolly is a Vampire who chooses to keep a strong grip on her ethics. Though she is a predator, Menolly never harms the innocent and is actively helping to recruit other vampires to pledge the same.

When humans begin to go missing, then turn up as newly born vampires, it is up to the D'Artigo sisters and their battle weary friends to pull themselves together and confront the newest emerging threats. The one responsible for the newly risen is Dredge. Dredge is known as the scourge of the land. It was Dredge who tortured, and worse, to Menolly before turning her into a night walker. Menolly lives (no pun intended) for the night she finally catches and stakes the vile monster.

Good news is that the elfin queen has hired a mercenary bounty hunter, Rozurial "Roz", to help them. Roz is not just another merc though; he is an incubus who, at the young age of seven, saw Dredge slaughter his family. There is no doubt that Roz will do anything and everything within his power to help them defeat Dredge. Bad news is that Dredge has kidnapped a human female friend of the sisters'. Unless they can locate her - FAST - Menolly knows exactly what her evil sire will do.

***** Do not believe this story is just for fans of the undead and Fae. There are references and appearances to Merlin, Morgan LeFay, Grandmother Coyote (one of the Hags of Fate), Demonkin, and so much much more. There is something for everyone's taste. Be warned there are one or two short love scenes and not all are with opposite genders. Yet I stress that these are short and not too graphic for those readers who are too phobic on the subject. The story is non-stop action and has deep, dark plots that kept me up reading long past my bed time. Here be Dark Fantasy with a unique twist. YES! *****

HASH(0xa1444eac) out of 5 stars the softer side of the vampire Feb. 11 2008
By Neker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
So it's here we learn about Menolly. If you haven't been keeping track I suggest you start with the first two books in this series. I liked this one mostly because of the action. Menolly is brought in by Chase to solve the murder of four vampire victims found in a local movie theater. Before they can figure out whose the cause, more bodies show up on a daily basis. If your in it this series for the romance, I think you would be disappointed. Even though Menolly gets over her "touching" problem, she doesn't FALL in love with anyone. Not like her sisters have in the previous novels. It's strickly let's-get-the-bad-guys. Rest assured fans, there will be a fourth novel. Apparently Galenorn is starting back to the first sister in her fourth novel. I'm thinking-rotation?

HASH(0xa1448258) out of 5 stars Third D'Artigo Sister Fails to Impress Jan. 5 2008
By Britt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I struggled with this third entry in the story of the D'Artigo sisters that focuses on Menolly, the youngest sibling. The previous two books, Witchling (The Sisters of the Moon, Book 1)and Changeling (The Sisters of the Moon, Book 2), both did a better job of drawing me into the minds and stories of their characters, the older D'Artigo sisters Camille and Delilah.

The story this time focused on the escalation of the battle between the sisters and the demon Shadow Wing with the Earth invasion of the Elwing Blood Clan. Headed by Menolly's sire, Dredge, the clan proceeds to nab unsuspecting humans, creating a human/Fae crisis as people start to disappear. The stakes are raised when a close friend is taken. With the help of previous characters, like Morio the fox demon and Chase Johnson, plus the addition of the incubus demon, Roz, the sisters scour the city for new, blood-crazed vampires.

Ultimately, after another visit to the Otherworld, the story culminates with Menolly battling her inner demons and eventually her sadistic sire. Fair warning, a few random sexual encounters popped up that left me scratching my head. In the previous books, Galenorn did a nice job of weaving in these encounters. However, these parts of the story felt out of context and distracting. Perhaps it had something to do with Menolly's much darker and more painful past, versus her relatively innocent sisters. In spite of my disappointment, I'm still happy overall with series and looking forward to the fourth book.

HASH(0xa1448288) out of 5 stars The series is growing on me March 10 2013
By ChibiNeko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: MP3 CD
I'm not quite sure what it is about this series, but I can't quite seem to make my mind up about it. It's fairly light as far as PNR and UF goes, but there's this nice charm to it that I really dig. I'm still slightly skeptical about the author's claim that she'll be able to write the series until nobody will publish it anymore, as I've seen where doing so has resulted in the deterioration of several long running series in several different genres. But that's a worry for future volumes, as right now we're still in the birthing stage of the series, with this volume being the last of the "introduction" entries.

Although we've met her in the previous two entries, this is our first time hearing the narration from Menolly's voice and I have to say, I like her. She's blunt, snarky, and not afraid to say what she wants to... unless it has to do with the amount of trauma that her sire Dredge put her through. I think she'd have to be my favorite of the three sisters, although each one has their own charm and they play rather nice off of each other. Together they pretty much embody the predominant stereotypes of the female supernatural novel character, although I don't use stereotype in a negative way. Familiar character traits are usually familiar for a reason, after all.

The story here is predominantly focused around Menolly's past. There are a series of crimes set in the present day, but those are more of a side plot brought in to give our heroine the impetus to start looking at her past and find a way to overcome it. You'll probably be able to guess whether she does or not, but the fun isn't in whether or not you'll know the destination before you get there but the trip itself. And I liked this trip, more so than I did the previous volume surrounding Delilah. She's a cute character, but there's just something about Menolly's personality that really clicks with this series. It doesn't hurt that Galenorn has given us a main character that's openly bisexual and isn't seen as comic relief and/or someone to be shuffled off to the side as most gay and bisexual characters often are.

That really brings me to one of the things I admire about this series as a whole so far: Galenorn brings the sex and isn't afraid to have her characters enjoy it. I know that there are other series that have their women having sex (Anita Blake anyone?), but this is one of the few series where you have your women (and these are women, not girls) having sex without worrying about being called a slut, about love triangles with sex involved (there is a brief worry about this for a minute, but not over the sex itself- Trillian and Morio don't mind sharing), or feeling guilty over the act itself. It just gets really old reading about women who wangst over enjoying sex or about numbers of partners, while complaining about how men can sleep with an ocean of women without double standards. I know that this exists, but I want a female character who just doesn't care. We get that in all three of the D'Artigo sisters and this was really brought home in this book with Menolly's attraction to a certain female character.

The audio narration for this was nice and all in all, I'm going to continue along until I either hit the point where I lose interest or until I catch up with the series as a whole. Let's see which one comes first.
