New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn returns with another thrilling foray into Otherworld - introducing a new cast of heroes alongside the D'Artigo sisters...
When the half-demon Carter approaches Menolly and her sisters desperately asking for their help, they think he's just had a tiff with Shimmer, his blue dragon girlfriend.
But after talking to Alex Radcliffe, the owner of the Fly By Night Magical Investigations Agency where Shimmer works, they suspect that she has been kidnapped by an old enemy of Alex's.
Now, Alex must join forces with the D'Artigo sisters in a desperate race to find Shimmer before Julian, a powerful vampire from Alex's past with a grudge to settle, can use the dragon to wreak havoc on Seattle as revenge.
When the first paper book in this series fell on my doormat, I realized it was high time to read this prequel novella, the book that connects the series I already love, the Sisters of the Otherworld, with this new series. So I asked my best friend Freya to gift me with the Kindle book, and I started reading it as soon as I had finished rearranging one of my bookshelves as a reward for getting it done.
And I liked it. Menolly the vampire is in charge in this story, when Roman asks her to look into some rogue vampires who are killing and turning a lot of humans and just letting them loose on the streets. As his consort, she has no choice but to investigate. Of course her sisters and friends help them out.
And then their main source of information, Carter, asks for their help in finding his missing girlfriend. Are those two cases connected somehow? It sure seems that way …
Shimmer is a blue dragon, and she has been banned from the Dragon High Reaches for five years, to atone for some seriously bad behaviour. And she will be starring in this series, with Alex and his paranormal investigation agency. As I really liked the setup for this novella, I have high hopes for the series. I will be reading Flight from Dead soon.
Not much on Shimmer yet in this novella, just her background, and a bit about Alex, her boss and guardian in the human world. I’ve read on Yasmine’s blog that the D’Artigo sisters won’t really appear in the series at all, it will focus on these new characters and their own storylines, and I am fine with that. I look forward to the strange and dangerous cases Shimmer and Alex will have to solve.
