Reviewed by: Candy


We’re the D’Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae ex-operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch with three sexy husbands. My sister Menolly is a vampire married to a wildly hot werepuma. And me? I’m Delilah, a two-faced werecat and Death Maiden. The Supe Community is in danger and now it’s up to us to unravel a mystery to which we may not want the answers…

When two vampiric software engineers approach us about a missing colleague, we don’t expect to find much. But then Grandmother Coyote steps in and our simple missing persons case rapidly devolves into a nightmare of debauchery, slavery, and corporate greed. Now, we must infiltrate and destroy an underground organization of influential men, led by the mysterious Lowestar Radcliff, before they discover we’re on to them. But one misstep puts our whole operation and our lives in peril, and I must unleash my powers as a Death Maiden, even if it means destroying someone I love.

Quick & Dirty: Delilah and her two sisters are half-human, half-elf. They live earth side and help protect it from demon invasions. Now the threat is stronger on the demon front and now they are also being threatened by daemons.

Opening Sentence: I stood at the top of the ravine overlooking the water front below.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

First, if you have never read any of the other books in the series go read them first. I have never read any of the others and was very confused with all the characters thrown at me all at once. I found myself not being able to remember who was who or what type of otherworld creature they were. This I could have lived with though. My biggest problem with this book was the way it just ended. One minute there is all this stuff they have to accomplish the next thing we see is Delilah and Shade getting it on and then it is just over. What the heck!!!!

I wanted to enjoy this book. I usually love books who introduce us to a variety of different otherworld creatures, but that was all this entire book had going for it. This story was just too bleak. Everyone died or went missing and the world as we know it could be coming to an end. Also, in the description Delilah and her sisters are supposed to be helping a fae woman, named Violet who has disappeared and now they have to use Delilah’s magic against these men, but that never actually happens and the description is misleading. Lastly, their worlds are falling apart, someone very close to them is dead. Their sisters livelihood is threatened and Delilah has time to get it on with her fiancé. Again, what the heck?

Ok, enough of my ranting about this book. I do want to say even though I did not enjoy this book and will probably never read another one; the author has a way with description that makes you feel like you are right there and can see everything that is going on. Also, as I said before, I do enjoy that she has a variety of creatures such as weres and vamps, fae and demons. I thought it was cool that so many characters were also more than one thing and weren’t your typical creatures such as just werewolfs or vampires. One of the coolest creatures was a shadow walker and a shadow dragon. How awesome would that be? I personally do not recommend this book but that is my personal opinion, some people may truly enjoy this story.

Notable Scene:

The creature turned its head and I saw that the features had a feminine bent. I was right—whatever this creature was, it was a she. But as her mouth opened, and she snarled at me with needlepoint teeth, I yanked my hand away from her as her lithe, supple neck bent at an angle that should have broken her spine but didn’t. Before I realized what she was doing, she’d launched herself at my right hand and chomped down into the flesh, her teeth piercing the skin like it was butter. The pain was excruciating and I let out a shriek. I yanked my other hand away and backhanded her with it as she let go of Menolly and reached for my throat. Menolly stumbled away and turned, grabbing the creature by the arm and yanking her away from me. She tossed her across the road. A chunk of my hand went with the creature, caught in her gnashing teeth.
