Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, the Vampiric Fae are on the move, hunting anyone in their path. As the war with the vampires ratchets up, Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court, enshrouds New Forest in her chilling grasp.
Cicely Waters, owl shifter and Wind Witch, has rescued the Fae Prince Grieve at a great cost. Their reunion has lost them the allegiance of the Summer Queen - and the tolerance of the vampires. In desperation they turn to the Consortium for help. Now, to regain the good will of Lainule, they must dare to enter the heart of Myst's realm. But as Cicely and Grieve embark on their search for the heartstone of Summer, Winter is already wreaking her terrifying revenge.

I really don't but this one seems to be getting a little old and I don't know why but it is getting boring. I loved the first book and the second. I looked forward to the third but was unimpressed. Sorry
I love the magical action and intrigue. I love the main charters for their passion and strength. I love the story of an evil wicked Queen who was the mother of the Heroine and that heroine grows and develops into someone I can be proud of. I love the power of friendship in this series.
Yes, I have tried other book from Ms. Galenorn and I often love her style and interests. The way she weaves magic into a wonderful story. Friendships, family, love and commitment all there to learn from and model.
Chatter (sp?) and Cailin (sp?) and the ones I wish to have more from in this series. These two men are interesting to me. They seem to be better men, better support to the people they love.
No, I like to let her books settle in over a little time. Also the whimpering, heaving, begging, disparate sexuality of the main character in this book was a little much to take sometimes. I know and welcome the female sexuality in this genre, but as a gay man it's gets to be a little thick in some parts. Stopping for a kiss/hug is one thing, talking about full one sex in almost every change of action is another. It slowed down my imagination of the story. I started to fast forward through those parts after awhile.
Yasmine Galenorn has not only shown me the wonder on the genre but lead me to others who I now enjoy along side of her books and that means any anthology or group work she does I'm sure to find something thing new in the mix.
I love this series. Each book has gotten progressively better. In this installment there is a lot of action and intrigue. Lainule, the Summer Queen, is dying slowly. In order to gain Lainule's favor and support Cicely and her crew make the journey to retrieve the heartstone which will save her. I don't want to give any spoilers so just take my word that part of the book is good. It gets better when they return. A lot is explained and resolved. However, the saga is not over. Cicely still has a battle to prepare for and a lot to learn.
As much as I loved this book, I do have to say that Cicely and Grieve were a bit oversexed. If they were not standing back to back fighting the Winter Queen, they were in a closet or the shower together. They had no shame! I can't wait for the next book.
