We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae means our powers go haywire at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah is a Death Maiden and werecat who belongs to the Autumn Lord. My sister Menolly is a vampire who's dating a gorgeous werepuma, and the godfather of the undead-set. And me? I'm Camille, Priestess of the Moon Mother, married to a dragon, a youkai, and a Svartan. But my dragon father-in-law has decided that he doesn't like having me for a member of the family....
It's Winter Solstice, and Aeval welcomes me into her Court of Darkness. With Morio still dangerously weak from his injuries and Vanzir alive only thanks to my silence, the thought of training under Morgaine doesn't seem as daunting as it did. But then, Hyto returns to shatter my life. Captured and swept off to the Dragon Reaches, can I manage to stay alive long enough to escape?
Spend some more time with the Sisters of the Moon.

The Otherworld Series is Unique as the books are consecutively narrated by one of 3 half human, half fairy sisters. Camille is a witch, Delilah is a were cat and Menoly is a vampire. It is easy to pick one sister as your favorite, and one as your least favorite. My least favorite has always been Camille. But this book shook that up. Camille is the strongest out of the 3 sisters, and it usually falls upon her to shoulder some of both of her sister’s burdens. While this book is still action packed, we see a vulnerability in Camille that we have not seen before. It shows that even the strongest of us can shatter, and need some help collecting the pieces. We also learn a lot about Smoky's own vulnerabilities. We learn of his past, and how he became the man/dragon he is now. And we get to meet his parents!
The narrator, Cassandra Campbell is wonderful as always! She can sound gentle and feminine one minute, and gruff, angry and very masculine the next. She can portray elated passion as well as crushing misery.
You have to read these books in order, the first is Witchling. Yasmine Galenorn is a writer that makes her story flow like music, and Cassandra Campbell performs it beautifully.
I am a self employed artist who listens to books while I work. I go through a very large selection of books because of it.
I have listened to all the books in this series. This is my least favorite yet. Camile comes across as weak and pathetic to me. The series as a whole is decent but something has bothered me all along and this book slammed it home. The story lines are more of what I would expect from young adult books except for one thing.... the sex. There are usually 3 to 4 fairly graphic sex scenes in each book. I don't mind sex in a book, if it adds something to the story but for me, in these books it just doesn't.
I have to say.... I might pass on the next book that comes out with Camile as the lead. Early on she was my favorite of the 3 but as I get to know her, not so much.
