Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their power. Instead, they created a demonic enemy more powerful than they dared to dream. Bent on enslaving the world, the Vampiric Fae have been quietly massing their strength for centuries. Now, Myst, queen of the Indigo Court, is rising again...and a long-prophesied war is brewing.
Born a witch, Cicely Waters can control the wind. When her Elemental warns her that her aunt and cousin are in danger, she packs her Pontiac GTO and returns home for the first time in 20 years. But the magical town of New Forest, Washington, has changed.
The Indigo Court holds the city in fear, people are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. Swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with her trusted childhood friend Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover. But Grieve has become enslaved by Myst's court, and now both lovers must walk a fine line to survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae Queen. Caught between two evils, both vying for supremacy, Cicely must fight for her family and her future. As she discovers the hidden secrets to her own heritage, will she lose her soul in the process?

I have read some of the others Yasmine has come up with. All have been wonderful stories that leave you wanting more. Myst is no exception. This is a wonderful beginning for a new series and I can't wait.
I look forward to the next book Night Veil 07/05/2011!!! =) Hopefully the date is right!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Nothing because it kept you on the edge of your seat
Yes, I would recommend Night Myst and the ways the narrator read the story.
Debut novel to a new series, Indigo Court. Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind returns home after receiving warning that her family was in trouble. Indigo Court is a dangerous species combining Dark Fae and Vampire, or Vampiric Fae, ruled by Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court. Myst is ready to begin a long foretold war against the vampires and Cicely Waters may be the only person able to stop her. Book one details the background on Cicely, her long standing love interest Grieve, who is a Fae Prince in his own right, and her friends from the town of New Forest which is in the midst of a supernatural war. It comes to mind that this is a sort of Romeo & Juliet tale. Grieve & Cicely, two lovers on opposite sides of the tracks. Great writing, well developed characters, and a very interesting story.
Didn't know what to expect but I really got into the story, it was pretty good. Will probably read the next one later on.
