Witchling: Otherworld, Book 1 | [Yasmine Galenorn]

Witchling: Otherworld, Book 1

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.

Publisher's Summary

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.

At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, a fellow operative, Jocko, has been murdered. Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, badass leader of the Subterranean Realms. He has made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground. Our assignment: Keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer. The demons figure they're in like Flynn. After all, with only my bumbling sisters and me standi g in the way, how can they miss? But we've got a secret for them: Faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D'Artigo girls.

    "Loved this book!"

    I'm new to this series and so happy I found it! It was interesting right from the start. It not only had sexy parts, but also ones that made me laugh out loud or anxious to see what was about to happen next. I will definitely be listening to the rest of the series.

    "Not worth it"

    I can't recommend the book: no suspense, one-dimensional characters, stereotype monsters. Really nothing that convinced me and I definitly won't buy the two sequels. And yes, as others have pointed out: the authors spends more time describing lingerie, clothes, make-up etc than action. If you are interested in this genre, I would recommend Kim Harrison's Hollows series.

    "Meh."

    Let me elaborate on my 'meh.' I like mysteries. Often, mysteries have a sideshow of unrequited romance. Often, too, if the protagonist is a woman, she is attractive and kicks ass, even if it's a goofy way, like Stephanie Plum. All of these things are fine, if formulaic. This book has all of those things, but it's all a bit too cliche without anything new or interesting added. Every man wants the main character, who is busty and curvy and oops! appears naked. The sex was boring and long enough that I scrolled past it, and it took 3 scrolls. It's not a bad story, but it's not a good one. It's meh.

    "Captivating First Book"

    If you love authors like Charlaine Harrison, Laurell K Hamilton and Kim Harrison you will love the universe that this author creates. The characters are intriguing and more complicated than they first seem to be. The plot will have you laughing, gasping, sitting on the edge of your seat and have you begging for more. I found myself very sleep deprived until I finished listening haha. I can not wait for the other books in this series.

    "Really its 3.5 Stars"

    I read the reviews on this book so I was a bit skeptical. The story line is gripping, and I do want to see what happens in the next book. With that said this books writing is a bit choppy, at one moment the author is poetic and then whip lashes into the drama. The reader, while she has a very pretty voice, some what sing song, she reads very dreamily even in the action scenes, which is a bit off putting. I hope this helps.

    Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.

    "Had a Hard Time Getting into this Book"

    I tried listening to the book several times, but I had a difficult time getting into the book. Although the storyline is meant to have drama but be light at the same time. I was not drawn into the story line. This may be the only book I read from this author as a result. It's a shame because I was looking for a new series. This just wasn't for me.

    "Narration is simply annoying"

    I purchased this book because I like this genre. I was disappointed in the narration. The narrator sounded like she had difficulty with ennunciation, especially the words ending with a "s". Although this may have been a better read than listen, I thought the author struggled with any new ideas, and decided to throw in every supernatural creature she could imagine. Shea, giants, were, vampires were only a few. I can't imagine purchasing any more of this series.

    "Nice begining to the series"

    This series is about three sisters - a witch, a vampire who is learning how to be undead and a shapeshifter that turns into a tabby cat. This book mainly centered around the witch. All three sisters are half-Faerie and operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. You have funny situations when the magic goes wrong, a mystery, fighting the bad guys and a dragon tossed in for good measure. It was interesting and a fun listen from the beginning to the end.

    "Interesting enough"

    It was interesting enough to read, however it's not crazy addicting. I'm not rushing to download the next one, like I am with the Cat and Bones series by Jeanine Frost. It's not a credit waste either.

    "Fun series that gets better and better"

    I found the dialogue in the first two books in this series to be down right laughable at times, and yet, I WAS laughing, so I count that as entertainment! "One things for sure," the author gets better with book 3, and I hope to be able to say the same with the rest of the installments. The main characters are charming and sweetly sentimental about each other, which is nice, and the collection of supes (such as a dragon, a house sprite, an incubus, etc.,) add to the adventure. Looking for something silly and fun? You found it!
