    One thought on “Darkling”

    1. After Changeling I honestly didn't expect to like Darkling as much as I did. Some inconsistencies/spelling/grammar issues aside, this was an enjoyable story with almost no romance to speak of.Darkling is definitely not a paranormal romance. For those interested, there are two sexual scenes in the book and they are used to either move the things forward or to encourage a change in a character. The third D'Artigo sister doesn't fall in love. The whole story is centred on her sadistic sire Dredge's [...]

    2. I've just finished Darkling, book three in Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld series. It is the first book in the series that I can claim to like. Wellke is too strong a wordlet’s go with: I didn’t hate it completely. Not sure whether my semi-enjoyment of this book, as compared to Witchling and Changeling, is due to a more compelling main character or whether I have developed Stockholm Syndrome--that I have been held captive by this series for so long (These short books are loooonnnng reads.) t [...]

    3. This is the book I chose for the 2016 popsugar challenge. Book set in home state. This book is set mostly in Seattle which is in the same state that I live in. I live around Bellingham. 5 starsIt was nice to finally know what happened to Menolly. Quite sad. Glad that she was able to sever ties with Dredge and finally end him. Will Menolly find love? When is Shadow With g finally going to show up? Nice to have a book in Menolly's POV.

    4. The plot has a little more depth in this one, perhaps because this sister has major inner demons to defeat before she can get on with her life. She's a considerably more interesting character than Camille and Delilah, albeit bogged down with the cliches that are becoming a trademark with this author. The way Menolly conquers her dark memories and grows into a more mature character is the best part of this book; we see how she's gradually accepting that the people around her love her and aren't t [...]

    5. The third book in this series is my favorite so far! Although, I’ve rated all the books with five stars, this was beyond words! Definitely darker, this story took me out of my comfort zone for an urban fantasy book. There is so much pain and tragedy in the past of the main character that I’m not so sure how she managed to continue living.So, this book is from Menolly’s POV and it’s a little different from the previous two. How? It has less humor and a lot of new characters. Also, this st [...]

    6. I think, in fact I know, I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read it rather than listened to it. Cassandra Campbell was inoffensive as a reader but not so much that I forgot she was there and not good enough to make this a performance. Initially I was lost having not read the prior two books. But eventually Galenorn provided enough information that I had a good idea of what was happening or at least who the characters were. This is considered urban fantasy and as such the women are the [...]

    7. Third book in the series, told from the youngest sister's perspective. (Looks like the fourth will be going back to the oldest's.) It was good. The fight continues & we learn more about the family from Menolly. She's a vampire & takes the lead as they battle her creator. The story line is very similar to the other two. I don't have the fourth book & don't mind waiting a while to get it. It's not a bad story, but it's also not compelling or different enough to make me want to run out [...]

    8. WOOew Menolly would be a doozy! She is one cool vampd I loved the fact that she was gettin heavy with Nerissa. In all honesty Camille & Delilah have enough testosterone floating around for ten womenLOL! I am very interested in Roz thoughm he sounds delicious. Also in Jareth who I wantto see if anything further happens between him and Menolly.d there is also Menolly and Nerissa. Man these sisters get all the goodies! And will Roz end up in a thing with any of them(ME ME ME)I also want to know [...]

    9. Third in the Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon paranormal-romance series based in Seattle and revolving around three half-human, half-fae sisters charged with preventing Storm Wing from overthrowing the world even as the Otherworld takes sides in a civil war. The point of view here is from Mennolly.My TakeOne of the interesting aspects of this series is that there is no settled love interest. While one sister provides the main point of view in each book and they end up with a lover or three, they d [...]

    10. 4.5 stars - great!I first read this book August 29-30, 2013.I reread it January 22, 2017.The below review is adapted/updated from the review I wrote after my first reading.I loved this book. This one was told from Menolly's point of view, and it was really nice to gain more insight into the youngest D'Artigo sister (though she still seems more like the middle sister). Not only that, but we learned exactly how she became a vampire and got to be witness to the (view spoiler)[breaking of the bonds [...]

    11. Darkling / 978-0-425-21893-8The third in the Sisters of the Moon series, "Darkling" carries on the point-of-view cycle by moving to the third sister in the family - the ill-fated Menolly. Half-human and half-Fae like her sisters, her particular cross to bear is her hated vampirism. In the second book of the series, "Changeling", we learned that the sisters' old enemies were joining forces with the vampire group that tortured and turned Menolly, and "Darkling" follows that plot thread as a chance [...]

    12. Darkling is the third book in the Sisters of the Moon series, the follow-up of Changeling(2). In Witchling(1) we meet the D'Artigo sisters- Camille, the eldest who is a witch, Delilah, the middle child who is a werecat, and Menolly, the baby of the family who is a vampire. The plot of Witchling establishes the confusing existance of the three realms- Otherworld, Earth and the Subteranean Realms and introduces us to a host of otherwordly species from both those found on Earth and those from witho [...]

    13. Darkling is the best in this series so far in my opinion. She's my favorite character and she has so many layers to her personality. She's been hurt, stripped bare and victimized by the jerk, Dredge, that turned her into a vampire. She's strong, loyal and will kick anyone's ass that hurts someone she cares about. What I really like about this character is that she isn't conformed. She's technically bi in my book, she likes the men but she'll also get involved with a woman if it feels right. She' [...]

    14. This is the third The Sisters on the Moon book by Yasmine Galenorn, and it doesn't disappoint. It's packed with new problems for the sisters, and a lot of action. I loved every minute of it. Menolly intrigued me from the moment she was introduced in Witchling, so I couldn't wait to meet her and get into her head.The constant pain she relives because of her physical and mental scars is heartbreaking. As if it isn't enough to have to deal with the fact that she's a vampire. Her sire, Dredge is evi [...]

    15. I realize I'm not the audience for thisd I read it out of order, but it was all I had on a long car ride. However, I won't be reading on with the series.The plot was shallow and unoriginal.The dialogue was flat and poor.The writing remained terrible throughout. Terrible on a word by word, sentence by sentence level, betraying both a lack of skill and style.I was indifferent to all the characters. Menolly especially. I never connected with her. I don't even like the cover. I finished it for the p [...]

    16. I actually really enjoyed Yasmine Galenorn's series. Fun, sexy, and not taking itself too seriously. It has enough paranormal to fit the genre,the plot follows some logic and each of the sisters gets their day in the sun with each book. Galenorn appreciates the pagan/paranormal viewpoint and provides an entertaining, sexy and entertainin read.

    17. Serinin bu kaitabını daha çok sevdim nedenseSanırım Menolly'nin öyküsü etkiledi beni birde vampir avlayıp durdukları için aksiyon çoktu :))

    18. I really liked this I'd forgotten loads from book 1 & 2 but as theses are each about a different sister so I caught up quick!

    19. Synopsis: 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 he [...]

    20. >Synopsis: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 m [...]

    21. I'm not quite sure what it is about this series, but I can't quite seem to make my mind up about it. It's fairly light as far as PNR and UF goes, but there's this nice charm to it that I really dig. I'm still slightly skeptical about the author's claim that she'll be able to write the series until nobody will publish it anymore, as I've seen where doing so has resulted in the deterioration of several long running series in several different genres. But that's a worry for future volumes, as right [...]

    23. This review was posted at Under The CoversIt's been a while since I read book 2 in the series, and with every book I always wonder if I might continue reading or if I should just stop. But I have OCD and have to know what happens next. So here I am. I thought I would actually like Menolly's book, and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. A lot of dark things came out in this book. It was a good story, but just a bit too rough and too dark for my taste. There was also a lot going on, as usual in [...]

    24. There's everything but the kitchen sink in the third instalment of the best-selling Sisters of the Moon series.Half-human and half-Faerie, the D'Artigo sisters are as at home in Seattle as they are in the Otherworld. Camille is a witch, and rules the roost. Delilah shape-shifts into a tabby cat when stressed, but can be a panther at other times. Menolly is a vampire, but not because of her half-Faerie heritage - but for the psycho-sadist Dredge who's likely responsible for the outbreak of newbor [...]

    25. Ok there are a lot of things that I like about this series. The beasties, the quest for the nine spirit seals, the settings is in Seattle, Washington, and some other attributes. But here are a few of the things I don't like though1. Is the "okay everybody stop it's history and battle planning time!" in a very perky type of way that sets my teeth on edge. I mean a whole shit ton is revealed in these little pow wow's, but it really isn't expressed in a way that I like. A lot is left to conjecture. [...]

    26. This series has the potential to be mind-blowing. It's okay, but it just leaves me wanting more. There are rich characters, sub-plots, sex, fantasy and politics all over. Yet I find myself still needing to understand more. It's like it was written as an outline, with just enough filler to pass it as a fast-paced story. It almost reads like a TV series script. What lacks for me is you just don't know enough about the characters to form any empathy for them. It starts to build and then you're thro [...]

    27. Darkling is book 3 of the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn of the D’Artigo sisters. The point of view focus of this book is Menolly’s the sister who was abused, tortured, and unwillingly converted to vampire. The gruesome full story of her torture made me shiver as it was told in this book. Dark is growing in this series with the DredgeWith each book in this series, new characters are brought to light explaining the past and being folded into the present which is nicely illuminating. I [...]

    28. This book focuses on the third sister - the vampire Menolly. Her sire Dredge who captured her, tortured her, turned her and then commanded her to attack her own family has crossed over from OW and is now making new vampires in Seattle. Menolly and her sisters have to stop the baby vamps, defeat Dredge, visit OW to meet Jareth a seer, and save a friend who is captured.These books are not HEA romances. The first sister Camille is sleeping with 2 guys (Trillian and Morio) sometimes together now. De [...]
