Fangs for the Fantasy
Menolly and Nerissa confirm their relationship in this book, growing closer than ever before despite the changes stalking Nerissa’s live – and despite the pressures pushing in on Menolly, including her vampire “daughter” requiring more of her attention.

There’s a vampire serial killer stalking women which in turn flares up human hatred against vampires. There’s also a vampire election coming up and the eldest child of the Blood Wyne, the oldest vampire, the vampire queen, is in the city and is de

Ninth in the Otherworld / Sisters of the Moon urban fantasy series rotating between the three sisters' points-of-view. Based in Seattle, the POV here is from Mennolly.

My Take
Whoa...big changes in this one. It's a combination of tying up loose ends and setting up new possibilities. I think this is one of the better ones in this series. Of course, it could be because there are so many interesting positives happening with what Roman reveals about his intentions and desires; Erin's freedom; and, Men

Although this book is a continuation of a series, it easily stands alone. Although there are references to events which happened earlier, the book explains the events in a way which does not give away the earlier story, but still allows a new reader to pick up the storyline and be comfortable in the world that the author is building.

One of the earliest indicators that this book leans more heavily towards a supe (supernatural being such as werewolves and vampires) only world is that the entry of

Back to the vampire sister Menolly POV. She and Nerissa agree to a more formal arrangement in this book and declare their love to each other. Roman - a very powerful older vampire who is the son of Blood Wyne - also wants to have a relationship with her. No progress on the Shadow Wing front. Smokey heads off for a family crisis with his mother taking Roz with him. Vanzir (their captured demon who is basically a slave) has a battle problem with Camille that leads to them having sex and her goddes ...more

There isn't any good images that I can use for this.
I don't like Menolly's character, never had, never will. But it's part of the series ya know? So there would have to be SOMETHING in the book to carry on to the following book.... right?
Nope.... Unless you count the drama with Camille and her three sex gods. Or the sorta love triangle with the Blood Wyne's son and the were-puma Menolly has going on. That is all very good stuff.

Blood Wyne is book 9 of the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn of the D’Artigo sisters. The POV focus of this book is from Menolly, the half-Fae, half-Human turned vampire. Each of the sister’s POVs are unique, yet the bond between them never wavers.

All kinds of twist and turns in this magnificently crafted book in the series. A lot of plot and sub-plot are going on at the same time. What’s up with Sassy Brandson and Erin, Vanzir and Camille, Chase and Sharah all generating interesting plot l

I will start off by saying Blood Wyne is a great paranormal novel full of interesting characters, sensational sex, and fighting scenes that leave you reeling. However, if you have not read all of Ms. Galenorn’s other novels in this series I feel you may be lost at times. I know I have read a couple of her other books in this series and I found myself trying to figure out what I missed by not reading the whole string of novels. Even with the air of confusion surrounding me at times, I still had p ...more

2 1/2 Stars. I am shocked to only rate this book two and a half stars. I thought it over many times but I honestly did not like this book that much. It was not for the reasons some have about Nerissa and Menolly's relationship. I could care less about two females being in a relationship. You love who you love and do not have to answer to anyone unless you love children or farm animals. :) I feel their sex scenes are a little rushed and could be much more pleasurable for the readers involved with ...more

If you have not read this series yet, I would suggest starting at the beginning (Witchling) because all of the books build upon one another. The series is about three sister and alternates which sister is telling the story, this one is told from Menolly's POV. Menolly is a vampire who is finally starting to accept who she is and that she can be loved as who she is. In this story, Menolly is going after a vampire serial killer that is on the loose in their town. But runs into some problems when t ...more

I can't believe I'm 9 books into this series! I am really enjoying how this series is evolving, and that each of the 1/2 human, 1/2 Fae D'Artigo sisters' lives have changed and grown in responsibilities. I think Menolly, the sister who was killed and turned into a vampire against her will, has grown the most!

If you haven't read anything by Yasmine Galenorn I really suggest that you do! This is book 9 in the series. A word of warning to readers, these book have NO closed door policy for the characters love scenes. The sisters have multiple partners and there is a same sex relationship. If you have no issues with either of these they are fantastic romantic urban fantasy reads that keep you wanting more!

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 sh

I won an ARC of this book in a contest and as I wasn't familiar with Galenorn's worlds, I read it far more confused than her fans will be. This is the 9th book in her Otherworld Series. The characters and their "species" and the backstory/history of the world has obviously been explained in previous books. Coming into the middle as I did made for some scrambling to keep up, despite the glossary and list of characters in the back of the book. There were other elements not to my specific tastes th ...more
Since this is the most recent book in this series release, I will review the overall series too. The first book was a little rough, but I though each book got progressively better. I enjoyed each personality development of each sister. The only person who I did not think really changed much was Camille, but I havent' read Dragon Wytch yet, so I may have missed something along the way. I love how Delilah and Menolly evolved in almost opposite ways. This book really brings to circle Menolly's emot ...more
Again had the opportunity to immerse myself in the world of the D'Artigo sisters and their ongoing adventures... This time the story is told from Menolly's POV and she comes across as stronger, wiser and more balanced than in any book thus far! I loved the power structure that she formed with Roman, the fact that she and her Were Puma lover Nerissa are finally allowing themselves to become more than just "friends with benefits" and the emerging power that Chase displays in this installment is ve ...more

So much happened in this book. Hell so much happened in between books too. I think the biggest thing was with Sassy Brandson. She apparently was see by Menolly's daughter, giving in to her predator. This was not the first time and in the end Menolly had to uphold her promise to her friend. Quite sad. Also we see that Menolly is finally becoming a responsible parent and making some decisions that a parent should consider beyond housing and allowing another to do all the parenting. But that is jus ...more
Orijinali Kitap Esintisi adresinde.

En küçük kardeş Menolly'nin kitabı fuarda bizlerleydi, benden de kaçmadı tabi. Önce Hasat Avı'nın okumam gerekti, malum sıralama bu kitapta bir hayli önemli. Ama gözüm hep bundaydı, çünkü Menolly en sevdiğim kardeş(ti).

Bu kitabından önceki Menolly kitapları kadar zevk almadım açıkçası. Hasat Avı mükemmelse bu iyiydi diyebilirim. Ama her kitabı benim bebeklerimden olduğu için bunun da yıldızını kırmadım fazla.

Auch der neunte Teil der Reihe ist wieder ein Filler. Was den Kampf gegen Schattenschwinge angeht, so kommt man mit diesem Buch auch kein Stück näher. Allerdings war es meiner Meinung nach besser als Hexenzorn und Katzenjagd. Ich hatte das Gefühl, dass es eher wieder im "alten Stil" war - mit mehr Aufträgen, mehr Unvorhersehbarkeit und weniger Selbstfindungs- und Weiterentwicklungsphasen.

The HVIC [Head Vampire In Charge] is Back!

I strongly recommend you read this series in order (Witchling, Changeling, Darkling, Dragon Wytch, Night Huntress, Demon Mistress, Bone Magic and Harvest Hunting) prior to reading this installment.

This was a bloody Good Read! Menolly's behavior in this installment was night and day compared to the disappointing twit she turned into in Demon Mistress. She has redeemed herself in my eyes. In this installment, she is in complete control of herself and she's

I enjoy this series and the sisters have really grown on me. I love that the first person POV switches between sisters in a rotation book by book. It mixes things up enough to allow me to read them fairly close together. The overreaching story arc, finding the spirit seals before the big, bad Shadow Wing’s demon henchmen - allows these three girls, who were never quite perfect enough while growing up, are now on the forefront of a war and are shown to be favored by powerful gods and immortal cre ...more
Star (The Bibliophilic Book Blog)
The Sisters of the Moon are back and this time, Menolly’s the prime focus. She’s got a lot of tough choices ahead, but hopefully everything will fall into place (as best it can). Menolly does worry that the paths the sisters are on will lead them apart, but every path can lead to the same destination. The sisters work best together and they’re just one big family – with their own sets of issues – but a wonderful dynamic that makes the stories so wonderful to read over and over again.

Out of all of the Sisters of the Moon series I look forward to the books about Mennoly. It seems that her books focus on the task at hand; instead of obsessing over the next time she's going to be jumping in the sack.
I like the objective of the sisters looking for the spirit seals/stones. The beasties are a great factor, but it feels like Galenorn opened up a copy of the Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures. Now after getting so far into the series I am seeing the comparisons to the show Charmed n

Probably the best of the Menolly books to date. Blood Wyne is the queen of the vampires and mother (biologically and vampirically) to Roman, vampire power broker of Seattle. Blood Wyne is discussed, but does not make an appearance in this book. I think that the title is a reflection of the place that Menolly has reached in her life. Still a vampire with a need for blood, but secure in herself and her relationships. Camille is involved in an action that will likely have a serious impact in future ...more

I think the story in this one just held a lot less interest for me. The book felt sort of formulaic to be honest, and when I think about it the last few did too. There's like an opening action scene where they're called by Chase unexpectedly to deal with something and it leads into what ends up being the overall plot for that book. Meh. I think it's a little disturbing how condescending the sisters are to humans now, how low their general opinion is towards humanity. On the one hand they're figh ...more
