We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah is a Were who turns into golden tabby when she's stressed. And Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead. As for me, I'm Camille D'Artigo, a wicked-good wi ...more

As some people know, I'm Yasmine Galenorn's assistant, now, so I won't be formally reviewing her books, any longer (same with Dakota Cassidy.)
However, one of the side benefits of working for authors is getting ARCs waaayyyy before anyone else does, so I was able to read Bone Magic quite early.
I can still offer my personal opinion on the works of the authors I represent, so here, for what it's worth, is my mini-review of Bone Magic.

I can honestly say that Bone Magic will not let you down. Yasmine

My expectations for this series have never been high. All I really expect is a fun, wacktastic, OTT adventure with the D'Artigo sisters and their menagerie. With this book, though, I realize that the fun is over (for me, anyway). It's not that the sexual parts are more graphically detailed than in other books, that's easy enough to skip over if you want to. And it's not that it's a one-note series, that can actually be a benefit for work-week reading since you know you're not going to be tempted ...more

Well that didn't take long. Where the hell is my husband? Or one of the three. Camille defiantly doesn't lack in the husband department.
Ms. Galenorn seems to suffer from to much recapping! Really I think that you could honestly rip out maybe three pages every time that she re-explains an effing character. Sorry, but I don't suffer from short term memory loss. For my sanity PLEASE STOP REPEATING YOURSELF AUTHORS!

In this the 7th installment of this series I am torn between giving this book a 3 or 4 star rating so I went with 3 and I will tell you why.

This one just did not hold my interest, instead of devoring it in a couple of hours I struggled to finish it in one day. Don't get me wrong there are things accomplished the biggest being Trillion comes back. In this book we get to spend time with Camille who is working on perfecting her Death Magic with Morio.

BLAH! Well I am glad that Trillion is back but WTH? He just shows up? No explanation why he didn't come back sooner or anything like that? He was angry with Camille for getting married to two other men in his absence, with due cause but he was cruel. Smoky's father showed up with Smoky's fiancee, which surprise Camille is jealous about; yet none of her guys care that they all share her??? Anyway beyond that the story is just more of the same. Camille is becoming another Anita Blake, screwing any ...more

Seventh in the Otherworld / Sisters of the Moon urban fantasy romance series revolving, literally, amongst three sisters and the family they have accumulated in Seattle. The perspective this time is with Camille.

My Take
Mmmm, I like the idea of the d'Artigo sisters' old Victorian being a real home and not just a temporary place where they wait out their exile. They've certainly picked up a number of housemates from Maggie to Iris, the girls' various lovers, a few demons, and a cousin.

4.5 stars - great!

I first read this book December 7-9, 2013.
I reread it February 2-4, 2017.

I did not review this book after my first reading of it, so the below review is completely new.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a pretty fantastic story. I'm not sure why I no longer feel like it's a five-star story, but something is holding me back. So this book gets *just* 4.5 "great!" stars from me. ;-)

So much happened in this story, it's hard to know what to talk about. So, in no particular order, I

Stacia Bonecrusher, the demon lieutenant is Shadowwing is still at large and plotting to get her hands on the spirit seals. But it’s difficult to focus on her when the undead are running amok, the portals to the Netherworld are open and ghosts and zombies need to be returned to their rest – as if rampaging fae and demons weren’t enough.

What would you do if you found yourself on the frontline of a war between demons and the fae? Well, that’s the question the D’Artigo sisters and their friends have to answer in Yasmine Galenorn’s Sisters of the Otherworld series. ~Series spoilers ahead~ These three sisters come from a mixed heritage, half-faerie and half-human. They don’t get much respect at home in Otherworld because their magic erratically backfires. Camille, the eldest and leader of the group, has pledged herself to the Moon ...more

well let me start off saying, that i really love this series, but i'm highly disappointed in Yasmine Galenorn (writer) this time. let me tell you why...

i usually give this series a 4/5 stars or 5/5 stars i just really enjoy them but this time the book was kind of ruined for me by the fact that now it seems the writer just wants to make the book a lot more about erotica and not the good kind.. which by that i mean Camille bedded Trillian, Smoky and Morio all at once... not my thing!! the act or w

Wisst ihr was? Ich liebe diese Reihe, ich liebe diese Autorin und ich liebe jedes einzelne Buch der Schwestern. Natürlich könnt ihr jetzt sagen "Ich dachte, du magst keine Liebesgeschichten, aber was liest denn du da, ne?!" und hier kommt nun meine Antwort:

In den Bänden stehen die Beziehungen nicht im Vordergrund, sondern der Fantasy-Teil. Die Mädels müssen ihre Aufgabe meistern und gegen Fieslinge kämpfen, dabei ergänzen sich alle teile der Geschichte hervorragend. Die Figuren wachsen in jedem

Bone Magic is book 7 of the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn of the D’Artigo sisters. The point of view focus of this book is Camille’s with a large starting focus on carving up zombies by summoning a demon using dial-a-ghost. . After Harold Young gang battles, lots of the dead were rising. She rectified this by blasting “his vacation timeshare to smithereens, well beyond what Demons-R-Us could fix.”

Hexenzorn ist der 7. Teil der Schwestern des Mondes Reihe, der wieder aus Camilles Sicht geschrieben ist.
In diesem Band geht es hauptsächlich um Camille und ihre Entwicklung - der Kampf gegen Schattenschwinge ist eher zweitrangig. Wie in den vorherigen Bänden passieren auch hier viele Dinge nebeneinander, jedoch fühlte ich trotzdem teilweise ein Gefühl der Leere. Als ich Hexenzorn fertig gelesen hatte, war ich etwas enttäuscht, denn besonders viel passiert darin nicht.

I have to say that I'm still relatively undecided about this series. I like it and I like its fairly refreshing approach to sexuality. It's nice that Galenorn portrays her characters as unashamed and unafraid of their own sexuality, which is something I've frequently praised in this series so far.

My only big complaint is the slow pace of the book and series. So far there's been a lot of revolving around the idea of Shadow Wing invading and the progress has been slow but decent. I'm a little lee

A Bewitchingly Super-Fast Read

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

I vowed to never read this series again due to the unnecessary overly graphic sex scenes (that were totally horrible btw). However, reading the short story in Hexed made me a bit nostalgic to see what the sisters have been up to. Surprisingly, I did enjoy this installment. Camille's behavior was not r

As the series goes on these books get better and better. The sister develop into their own characters instead of hot fae/human chicks who are trying to save all the realms from imploding. Death, destruction, poly relationships, and ego deaths are all featured in this book. Plus pop culture references as well as science-fiction references in an urban fantasy book is pretty rad.

This series has some great characters within it and the previous books have all been decent. I found that this series was better when Trillian was MIA; however, I do like Trillian's character. I suppose the resulting lack of tension when he returned was a little anticlimactic. Since Trillian is supposed to be her Alpha lover, I would have expected his reaction to have been somewhat more dramatic thereby increasing the turmoil and making this a much more exciting read. I liked learning more about ...more

I found this book was quite a bit darker than previous installments, and while I still love the characters and the world Galanorn has created, I found this book was missing much of the humour and lightness that has interspersed with the battle part in earlier books.

There wasn't much other than the battle the sisters are facing in this book. A few small moments of happiness, but the vast majority of this story was surrounding the escalating battle the sisters and their extended family [Trillian

Camille is my favorite character out of all three sisters, followed second by Menolly. I love that she's powerful and ultra sexy. All the sisters are awesome.

I adore all her husbands.. It's hard to rate one book without rating the whole series. All these books are good.

Ms. Galenorn really did make the progression into the series a bit more fluid. At first I got tired of hearing a running synopsis of the story line in each new book so that the new reader could catch up. I do believe in this set

I have read this series from book #1 and I am still going strong with it. The D'Artigo sisters are fantastically written by Yasmine Galenorn and the world they live in comes to life while you read.

But be warned this series is not the typical HEA books, they are urban romances, but even the author states "I consider the series urban fantasy because the focus is on the action, the world story arc, and primarily, the sisters and their relationships to one another.
