Overview

New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn returns to the Otherworld where one of the D’Artigo sisters faces a demon who's out for blood.

The D’Artigo sisters are half-human, half-Fae operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. A werecat who’s one of the Autumn Lord’s Death Maidens, Delilah has a funny feeling that the Hags of Fate enjoy seeing her squirm. First, her boyfriend, Chase, mutters another woman's name in his sleep. Then she discovers the Autumn Lord has a very special plan for her. But things go from bad to deadly when Karvanak—the Rāksasa—returns.  In order to get his greedy hands on both the fourth Spirit Seal and his former associate, Vanzir, he kidnaps Chase. Now, the D'Artigo sisters have to find a way to rescue the man Delilah loves without risking the safety of both Otherworld and Earth...

Night Huntress / 978-1-440-65992-8 The fifth in the "Sisters of the Moon" series, "Night Huntress" places us once again in the point of view of middle sister Delilah, as she struggles to sort out her relationship issues in the face of an oncoming potential apocalypse. Like the previous novel, "Night Huntress" contains a large dose of "middle-of-the-series" syndrome, as at least as much time (if not more) is spent dissecting Delilah's love life as if spent on the search for the spirit seals. This is tempered, however, by Delilah being a more sympathetic and realistic character to sink into, and the problems with her lovers (infidelity and love-vs-lust issues) are more complex and less quickly solved than her sister Camille's one-trick-pony solution to all her relationship problems. Bravely, Galenorn shakes things up a bit by making the search for the spirit seal the focus of the first half of the book, instead of the second, with the actual climax combining both a demonic showdown and some relationship drama all mixed in together. This choice breathes some fresh life into a series that otherwise seemed destined to follow the same format verbatim: Introduction, Relationship Drama, Spirit Seal, Repeat. The new format also serves to characterize the sisters as distinctly proactive forces, no longer just reacting to the demonic activity as supernatural firefighters. This freshness is somewhat undermined, however, in the constant struggle to move things forward for long time fans without leaving new readers behind. Of course, all authors want to be able to snag new readers at any point in the series, but "Night Huntress" crams in massive back-exposition and repetitive re-angst of all the difficulties that have gone before. Long-time readers of the series will no doubt become frustrated with the repetition - there's only so many ways to repeat the backstory of the previous four books, the childhood history exposition, and all the relationship drama that has gone before - and large swaths of the book feel like you're turning the pages to get to the actual *new* material. Overall, though, "Night Huntress" is a solid addition to the series, and even better than the previous entry (which also suffered from "middle-of-the-series" syndrome), and if you've stuck with it this far, I'm fairly confident you won't be disappointed. Chase-shippers may be disappointed with the character development (derailment?) that occurs for him in this novel, and the resolution may stick a little as a bit of a Family Unfriendly Aesop, but the overall plot is excellent and will keep you coming back for more. ~ Ana Mardoll

This was a very exciting book. Delilah is leading the group in trying to find the fourth Spirit Seal. Vanzir, a dream chaser and Roz, an incubus, we met in the last installment, are now new additional allies who have joined the fight to help stop Shadow Wing from gaining the seals. Karvanak, a minion of Shadow Wing, abducts Chase, in order to gain control of the sisters. There are great parts where Zach and Delilah¿s were interact. Those parts seem to have a natural flow. There¿s a lot of humor throughout. Roz and Menolly seemed to be getting quite close. It¿s great to see Menolly become a mama to Maggie. I really loved the story but some things simply irritated me. I have always hated Chase and Delilah together. He seems petty and jealous. In the first couple books in the series, he¿s actually trying to get into Camille¿s pants not Delilah¿s. Then all of a sudden he stops being this huge douche-bag and is serious about Delilah? His character is completely despicable and unredeemable, with the way he treated both Delilah and Erika. He doesn¿t deserve Delilah and his character is boring. One last complaint about him, he is so selfish in bed. The sex always seems to be Delilah doing all the work. All the focus is for Chase and he never seems to put out at all, just takes what¿s given and never reciprocates. Now Zach, he¿s a keeper. I hate the way Zach is tossed aside all the time. Even after what he did for Chase, Zach seems to be an after thought to Delilah. Like some idiot stand-in. How can Zach and Delilah¿s weres have mated but she¿s head-over-heels in love with Chase? It just doesn¿t make sense. Their were half is intense and is always there under the surface. There¿s no way she can ignore Zach like she does if they are indeed mated. Zach is a sexy alpha for christ sake, why would some ordinary jerk be enough for her to ignore her were-cat? Anyhoo, despite the inconsistencies w/ Zach and Chase this was still a great read. Extremely entertaining, with lots of action. I recommend this book as well as the entire series. I also look forward to Demon Mistress in June 2009.

In Seattle, the three half Fae D¿Artigo sisters continue to work for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. Each has personal issues as Camille the good witch struggles with being an equal opportunity multi-species hunk magnet, Menolly is still adjusting to being a vampire; and Delilah the shapeshifting were-cat tries unsuccessfully to deny she has become a Death Maiden servant of the Autumn Lord as that makes her relationship with her human boyfriend Chase the police detective seem impossible.

Meanwhile Karvanak the Raksasas demon and his associate Vanzir the dream stealer have obtained the third Spirit Seal and are after the fourth. To achieve their objective they abduct Chase, who is already in Delilah¿s litter box for whispering some other woman¿s name in his sleep while lying with her. With the help of her sisters Delilah hopes to rescue Chase, but the Autumn Lord has demands for her too.

Once again in this excellent urban fantasy saga, the various types of paranormal species seem genuine and the good guys do not always win so expect the unexpected as the lead role rotates this time from Camille (see DRAGON WYTCH) to Delilah. In spite of the non-stop action that never slows down for a moment and the myriad of support cast that can be a bit distracting, NIGHT HUNTER superbly builds on threads from the previous ¿Sisters of the Moon¿ books; yet can be read as a stand alone. Yasmine Galenorn provides a strong entry as the love between the sisters and the males in their lives propel the D¿Artigo trio to do what they can to save Chase, but never lose sight of keeping safe the two worlds they have their feet standing in.

Great book kept me reading with no lag time. Enjoyed the directions the individual characters are taking while remaining true to the original plot. I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't read the first 4 books.

Nice part of this series. Partly because I like Delilah the best of the sisters d'Artigo! I do get a little tired with some aspects of this series (especially the parts with: everyone looks terribly good and is wearing so and so clothing. I don't care how they look, unless it's important for the story like Camille's Unicorn coat)Edit: after reread I like this better, partly because there's some nice character development from several characters (Delilah, Chase) and some very good demon hunting action.

I love this series and this book was no exception. I really can't wait to read the next one. All of the characters are interesting and fun to follow. Excellent book!

In the 5th book, we're back to Delilah, the tabby cat. She's a much more appealing narrator than Camille (the witch sister). Fun series.

Galenorn gets more and more comfortable with her writing as each book in the Sisters of the Moon series comes out. Night Huntress was well written and enjoyable to read. I love all the D'Artigo sisters, but like any person I think I prefer Camille (because of Smoky the Dragon) and Menolly (because her stories are so much darker) than Delilah. But Delilah's story is slowly becoming more and more complex, and I look forward to what happens to her next.

The fifth installment of Galenorn's Sister's of the Moon series is yet another example of why her books are not to be missed. As we follow Delilah, the werecat, through more battles to save the Earthside and Otherworld we are taken on a non stop ride. Galenorn's books are full of characters you love. Their battles both with evil and within their own personal lives make the reader beg for more. A definite keeper.

Fifth in the Sisters of the Moon series by Yasmine Galenorn about three half-fae sisters who are leading the fight to keep a demon lord from breaking the barriers between Earth, the Otherworld where most of the Fae live, and the Underworld, where demons live. The story is good, involving searching for one of the seals that keeps the worlds apart. The problem with this series is that the sisters are up against impossible odds all the time, and multiple times in one book. It strains credulity because someday their luck is going to run out. Still, Galenorn tries to balance this with by adding new allies, and givng the characters some time to develop.

Fun, in a smutty Scooby Doo via Dungeons & Dragons sort of way, although I still don't understand what Delilah sees in Chase -- he's such a tool.

Yasmine Galenorn's world settles in a bit with "Night Huntress". She doesn't introduce any new characters in this latest novel of her 'Sisters of the Moon' series, but instead she expands the parameters and relationships of the middle sister, Delilah. While Delilah's first book "Changeling" was more about the sisters' overall mission and Delilah's romance, this book is about Delilah coming to terms with her non-humanity and what that means to her lover. I found the book fascinating from that perspective and it's not often you find a paranormal heroine dealing with human relationship issues...usually it seems to be the other way around! Plus I liked the continuation of the overall storyline and advancing abilities of all the sisters Galnorn presented in "Night Huntress".I guess, in a very wordy way, I'm saying if you already like this series I think you'll be very pleased with the latest. If you haven't already been reading the series, this book won't give you the best idea of what the whole series is about.
