First of three books, dealing with half-fae, half-human sisters, living Earthside. Of course, the fae are known on Earth, so they are minor celebrities locally, despite being half-human. This book is told from Camille's POV, who is a rather incompetent witch. Another sister is a were-cat, who turns not only during a full moon, but also during stressful times, and the third sister was turned into a vamp against her will - but it is unclear what her powers were, if any, before that.

All three sist

Warning: I only got 35% into the book. And I freely acknowledge that things could get better. But I couldn't force myself further at this point.

Just some random thoughts on what I did read.

*Characters are one-dimensional. And really not smart. They supposedly were half human/half fae, but even though they lived for years in 'Otherworld' they really didn't know anything. The main character has this contempt for humans, and disregard for what she's supposed to be doing that got on my nerves.

*Told

The problem with this book is that it tried too hard to be something it's not. It tried to be funny, it tried to be sexy and smart, but ended up falling short. The premise sounded like it could be fun, albeit not particularly unique; there have been numerous urban fantasy series featuring sisters/a band of close girl friends and various monsters, but great writers can turn cliches and overused plots into something new and entertaining. Sadly, Galenorn doesn't have that ability, nor does she writ ...more

The author lost me when she put in the words "J-Lo esque butt".
Yeah I lost interest really quickly after that.

The influences here are obvious. Laurell K. Hamilton, Rachel Caine, Kim Harrison, Charmed, Buffy, Angel . . . The result though is tepid because only the superficial bits of these influences have rubbed off and then been regurgitated out into this novel.

It's about three sisters all half human, half fey. We have a witch, a vampire and a werecat. This story is about the witch named Camille. She has really big boobies (double D's if you must know), long lustrous raven hair and a face and body that

Shelves: fantasy-urban
If I could have given it less than one star, I would have. I just couldn't get past her constant use of acronyms and the never ending need to repeat herself. I get it, the main character is flawed, her spells always go wrong, you don't have to tell me a dozen times before she casts every darned spell. It just got tiresome. I wanted to put the book down in the first seventy pages. I made it through to the end because I made a bet that I would finish it. If I hadn't I would have tossed the book in ...more

Witchling was recommended to me as a series similar to Kate Daniels (my favorite urban fantasy series), so I had to give it a shot.

LIKES:
✔ 3 Sisters with different paranormal abilities. Like TV show 'Charmed' but even more different...
Complex world-building with intricate fae politics.
A lot of paranormal creatures: demons, harpies, gargoyles, dragons, fae, vampires, giants, witches, shifters, ...

DISLIKES:
Info dumping all the time. All the info about the world I got was from Camille's long

I think it's sad that after 2 chapters I was done.
It sounded a lot like Charmed from the back cover, but it feels like a Charmed rip-off mixed with a wanna be Merry Gentry.
*sigh* maybe one day I'll finish it, but as of now, the writing irritated me and was boring and repetitive.

It took me a whole 5 months to read a grand total of 276 pages. That says absolutely everything you need to know about the entertainment value of this book. The first few chapters were just horrendous - very, very poor writing. By the time I got to about page 100 I found myself doing other things (like, say, the iorning, which I hate doing) just so I wouldn't find myself opening this book again. In the end I turned it into "bathtime reading" just to force myself to get through it.

Ok, so admitted
