Blurb:  We’re the D’Artigo Sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we’re 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 Camille is a wicked-good witch whose magic is as unpredictable as the weather.  My sister Delilah transforms into a tabby cat when she’s under stress.  And me?  I’m Menolly, acrobat-extraordinaire-turned-vampire.  And I’d give my right fang to make my sire pay for killing me.  That is, if he doesn’t find me first…

“All over Seattle, humans have been going missing, only to turn up as newborn vampires–the sure sign of a rogue vamp on the loose. It looks like Dredge is to blame. The same sadistic Dredge who gave me my scars, and who may well be in cahoots with the demon Shadow Wing. If so, Otherworld and Earth are screwed. The only way we can hope to defeat Dredge is for me to travel home to Otherworld, where I must face my own demons. Because unless I sever the ties that bind me to Dredge, all hell is going to break loose…”

Review:  Book 3 and I’m still enjoying the series.  The focus in this book is on the third sister, Menolly.  It was a little less of a romantic focus than the other two books, but there was just a lot that need to be dealt with and addressed in this book with regards to Menolly’s character.

The issue I had in the previous books with the dialog seems to have been much better in this book, though I’m still conflicted over the cultural sexuality as it is presented because it still seems a bit unclear as to where the characters stand and what the actual cultural significance is in relation to the main characters.

There didn’t seem to be as much progress towards the overall arch of the series storyline outside of dealing with some of Menolly’s history in this book, which dropped the interesting factor down a tiny bit for me.  I do have the next book on my To Read list, so I’m waiting to see if the interest level picks back up or continues to drop.
