"A Magical Treat!"
There's nothing better on a cold winter day than a cup of
steaming cocoa and a good book. WITCHLING definitely more
than qualifies as a good book--one of the best of 2006. And
if reading about Camille D'Artigo and her sisters' exploits
doesn't get your blood pumping, well you'd better watch out
because Menolly might want a snack. (She's very neat about
The book is set in contemporary greater Seattle area and
features the three D'Artigo sisters who are half human and
half fae. Each has a special gift although because they're
half-bloods, their gifts aren't exactly reliable. Camille
is a witch, Delilah shapeshifts to a kitty, and Menolly is a
vamp. The sisters work for the Otherworld Intelligence
Agency and must find another operative's murderer. But when
the murderer turns into three--demons, that is, things get a
little exciting. I really don't want to say much about the
plot because each chapter is a discovery, and the reader
will want to make that discovery himself.
Who doesn't like murder, suspense, dragons, demons, and a
baby gargoyle, all mixed in with a good dose of humor?
WITCHLING is an exciting, compelling read. The
worldbuilding is incredible and the characters are
spellbinding, no pun intended. I heartily recommend this
book and am eagerly looking forward to the next in the
Sisters of the Moon series, CHANGELING.

Meet Three Semi-Supernatural Sisters out to save the Otherworld
Meet the D'Artigo sisters: half-human, half-faerie, they're savvy-and sexy-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But their mixed-blood heritage short-circuits their talents at all the wrong times. Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who's still trying to get the hang of being undead. And Camille is a wicked-good witch, except her magic's as unpredictable as the weather, as her enemies are about to find out-the hard way.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Author warning: "Yes, I know they're labeled paranormal romance, but trust me, the series is urban fantasy--the publisher decides the category they're shelved under, not the author. Yes, there are relationships in these books. Yes, they have explicit sex scenes. But they are not primarily romances, so don't expect hero/heroine relationship focus, or HEA endings, and you won't be disappointed." ....Yasmine Galenorn
