Demon Mistress is a misleading title. It built in me an expectation of Menolly's character developing powers over Demons and subjugating them to her will. With Vanzir and Roz sniffing around her like dogs at a fireplug, perhaps the title suits. With the challenges she meets in fighting demons and tracking down the key players--nasty frathouse nerds delving into the occult and worse-- involved in a series of demonic related crimes, my original assumptions are met to a certain degre

Very good book. Like to see how everyone is progressing in their relationships. Glad that Trillian was able to contact Camille and tell her he was okay. Hope Mellony will have a long happy life with Nerissa.

Can't wait to read Bone Magic!!!
Bu da bitti ve yine bayıldım. Menolly'nin anlatımı çok hoşuma gidiyor. Bu kitapta da kötü cinlerle uğraşıyorlar, farklı olarak aptal üniversite öğrencilerinin olduğu bir olay var burada. Ruh mührünü ise tamamen şans eseri buluyorlar. Kitaptaki yaratık bir Karsetii denen büyük bir mürekkep balığı gibi bir şey ve bizimkileri çok uğraştırıyor. Ayrıca Menolly ve Roz çifti de hoşuma gidenlerden biri. Kitabın sonuna doğru Trillian'ın döneceği haberi veriliyor ve bu yüzden bir sonraki kitabı feci bir ş ...more

Another book down...totally amazing!!! Onto the next...boy i love this book series!!!
I first read this book December 4-5, 2013.
I reread it January 26-28, 2017.

The below review is adapted/updated from the review I wrote after my first reading of this book.

I really enjoyed this story! It was delightfully creepy. :-)

In this one, the sisters were fighting a Karsetii demon and the humans who summoned her. The humans were dumb but strong. . . and thankfully they got the ending they deserved for working such evil.

The Karsetii was very creepy (imagine a giant squid, inky black), which i

This series is one of my favourites. You know the ones that feel like you're catching up with old friends every time you open the latest book in the series? The type that although you're absolutely itching to read, you try to put it off as long as you can because you don't want it to be over? Yeah, this series is like that for me. :)

I also love that the books are told in the POV of each sister. This one's the sixth book and happens to be narrated by Menolly. She's a vampire, and a very complex c
Don't ask me why I keep reading these. They are kind of a filler when I am out of 1st reads and can't find any thing else to get. But that is one stupid reason to spend money on something! Ah, well.

I really like the premise of the stories. I don't care for the delivery that well. I guess I would have to say that I do want to see what happens...if only I didn't have to read the "Whaaa????" (all those annoying pieces and inconsistencies that just boggles the mind) to get to the 'what happens'.

The 6th book is written from Menollys View and is the best so far in the series. Each book gets better and better. She discovers a ghoul in the woods near her house and has to find a necromancer that was controling it. I couldnt put this book down!

Menolly for this one! After finding a diary at the Wayfarer, and finding out it belonged to a previous bartender who disappeared, Menolly decides to investigate further. What she discovers is a secret society who is trying to win Shadow Wing's favor so they will be spared when he returns to Earth.

Sixth in the Otherworld / Sisters of the Moon urban fantasy series revolving around the three D'Artigo sisters currently living Earthside in Seattle. The perspective is from Mennolly this time around with Roz and Vanzir pushing their own agendas with her.

My Take
It's hard to say whether this series is urban fantasy or paranormal romance. The focus changes with each story. One book might be primarily from Mennolly's perspective while the next might be from Camille's or Delilah's.

It certainly is a
Fangs for the Fantasy
Menolly steps back up as protagonist in this book as the sisters come across an old potential crime while burrowing through the storerooms of the Wayfarer. Tracking down a missing elf from years ago isn’t easy, but is complicated by a missing vampire, a posse of undead, a friendly neighbourhood necromancer and his wandering ghouls, a demonic frat house who get exactly what they deserve and a whole new force of demons who fight on the astral plane

It’s a lot to juggle and, of course, behind it all

As always amazing read. I stopped in the middle a couple times because I had outside issues so took longer to finish but not by choice lol. On to the next!
One of my ongoing themes for my reviews is that I've been mostly undecided as to what I ultimately think about the series. While I still have my doubts, I can say that for the most part I rather like this series overall and Demon Mistress highlights a lot of what I like and dislike about the novels as a whole.

What I do like is the continued openness and frankness that Galenorn applies to her characters' love lives. She's not afraid to have a bisexual character and she's not afraid to have Menol

Demon Mistress / 978-1-101-05529-8

The sixth book in the Sisters of the Moon series, "Demon Mistress" continues the familiar point-of-view switch by settling back into the braids of the youngest D'Artigo sister, Menolly. I felt that Menolly's last book, "Darkling", was the best of the first three novels in the series, and I have nothing but good things to say about "Demon Mistress", particularly after the very slightly stale "middle-series" feel the earlier two books seemed to carry.

Menolly has a

Ok, I am still totally enjoying these books, but I'm going to vent about some of it anyway. First the way the characters prioritize is mind boggling. Spoiler warning! For example, they've got a number of individuals having their life energy fed on by an unspecified demon and they decide to delegate helping the people in mortal danger to others while they go interview Harish about Sabele. Now obviously the missing elf becomes a major part of the bad guy plot later on, but at this point in the sto ...more

The long running story of the D'Artigo sisters has captured my attention. The sisters are each half fae and half human which makes their powers strong yet unpredictable. The eldest, Camille, is a witch whose powers sometime short circuit or backfire. Delilah, the middle sister, is a werecat with two forms. Delilah shifts uncontrollably when she's upset. The youngest, Menolly, was a former acrobat and spy before she was tortured and forcibly turned into a vampire. The sisters are all living earth ...more

I love this series! Each new book expands the storyline, the characters and the worlds a little bit more.

The battle the sisters and their lovers/friends are fighting against Shadow Wing takes a backseat in this installment, as the matter of the disappearances and murders of Fae women are investigated by the D'Artigo sisters.

There are also unattended Ghouls running amok and causing trouble in Seattle, meaning a Necromancer is in residence somewhere.

As always Yasmine Galanorn does a fantastic job

Da ich bislang nur die ersten beiden Bände gelesen habe und die anderen Bände nicht kenne, möchte ich mir an dieser Stelle eine kleine Zusammenfassung sparen, da mir einfach das nötige Hintergrundwissen fehlt und ich unnötig spoilern möchte.

Mir hat das Buch sehr gut gefallen, vor allem weil es kein typischer dunkler Vampirroman ist, wie es sonst meistens der Fall ist.

Die Schwestern Menolly, Camille und Delilah sind wunderbar beschrieben und man kann sich gut in sie hineinversetzen, aber auch Eri

These Yasmin Galenorn stories are a Guilty pleasure of mine. The church book group is not where I am going to recommend this one, LOL! But awkward subject matter and non-church-approved lifestyle choices aside, I really like these "urban fantasies" by Yasmine Galenorn. Why? For me it's all about the characters and what the take home message of a book is. All the other stuff is well, just stuff to me. These stories are about overcoming hardships, realizing one's worth and value is about how one l ...more

This is the 7th book in the Otherworld series and even though I cannot add Galenorn to my list of favorite authors yet, up until now all her books have been/are great ‘in-between’ reads (good to read while waiting for other books to be released). They keep my interest, have good characters, hot encounters, and decent action. The writing style is not quite as good as some other paranormal authors but good nonetheless.

The main sister in this book is Menolly, the half human, half Fae who was turned

Every so often I forget why I stopped reading a series, and grab a book in a series without thinking.
That was the case with this book. I forced myself to finish reading the book, but it was a painful experience. Maybe that pain would remind me the next time I see the authors name.
One word sums up this book in a nutshell "Crass".
Imagine what you would want to be if you could be your own favorite paranormal character, Would you be a dethroned princess? Would you be unbelievably beautiful? Would

Demon Mistress is book 6 of the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn of the D’Artigo sisters. The point of view focus of this book is Menolly’s, starting with discovering Sabele’s chest in Wayfarer Bar & Grill. Sabele ran the Wayfarer before Jocko and Menolly. This discovery initiates a sub-plot mystery and conflict which folded into the primary objectives of the series intriguingly.

So I just finished the 6th book in the series about the D'Artigo sister and I was impressed as usual. Although I prefer the books that are from Camille's point of view, this installment from Menolly's POV was pretty good.

I liked the idea that instead of one supernatural big bad they were surprised and had to deal with human's who were truly evil instead. Showing that the threats were not just from Shadow Wing and his minions. Menolly and Roz were great, I was rooting for a hook-up. I've enjoyed

I suggest you read the previous five books in order before taking this book on (Witchling, Changeling, Darkling, Dragon Wytch and Night Huntress). Menolly is my favorite out of the sisters. She is tough, cynical and the least bratty. If you are a fan of the Otherworld series you won't be disappointed with this book. Menolly and the gang investigate the kidnapping of an elf women and a vampiress. Simultaneously, Chase has his hands full with unsupervised ghouls. A fraternity house full of amateur ...more

Demon Mistress, Book 6, is another excellent volume in the Sisters of the Moon series by Yasmine Galenorn. Told from the point-of-view of Menolly, youngest of the the D'Artigo sisters and a vampire. Menolly is still recovering from her torture, rape, and death at the hands of the Dredge, leader of the Elwing Blood Clan. She braided her hair after she returned home from experience at Dredge's hands and finally at the end of this volume decides, that maybe, it is time to unbraid her hair. This is ...more

It's been a long time since I read Night Huntress, but it took me no more than a couple of pages to get back into the story and characters. The story continues fastpaced and entertaining as ever - with an exceedingly dangerous demon loose in town dropping bodies and honing in on Delilah, Supe and Fae women going missing and a secret fraternity dabbling in demon summoning and gang rape, the sisters and their growing group of lovers and allies have their work cut out for them. But it's not all jus ...more
