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. Delilah is a two-faced werecat and a Death Maiden. And me? I’m Menolly, a vampire married to a gorgeous werepuma. As the war in Otherworld arrives, Blood Wyne, Queen of the Vampires, summons me. Apparently, my position as Roman’s consort entails more than I imagined…
As the Demon Lord Shadow Wing creates his own sinister version of the Keraastar Knights—the guardians of the spirit seals—to destroy the portals and free himself from the Sub Realms, his ally, the necromancer Telazhar, leads an assault from Otherworld into the streets of Seattle. And my sisters and I are caught dead center.
Then, on the eve of war, my wife, Nerissa, is captured. The enemy demands we surrender the rest of the spirit seals, or they are going to kill her. I will do anything to save her. Even if it means leading an army of vampires into the very depths of the Subterranean Realms…
Darkness Raging is book #18 in the author’s Otherworld /Sisters of the Moon Series and I was expecting to be a little lost within the background of the story. But, it was not bad and I easily fell into place learning who was good, who was evil, and how the characters felt about each other.
This book focuses on Mellony, a vampire, and her wife Nerissa. Nerissa is a were-shifter learning to fight against evil. Mellony is part of the Sisters of the Moon who are tasked with ridding the world from otherworldly goblins and demons that travel through portals to earth. As half Fae and half vampire, Mellony also serves as consort to the Prince of Vampires, Roman.
There is a lot of history, a lot of action, and a lot of different characters throughout this story. The suspense and action kept me engrossed in the story and wanting to know more. Also, the cast of characters were very well developed and interacted really well. Usually, books this far into a series can become boring, but this story was interesting from the start and makes me want to know more about this series.
This is a good paranormal book that is easily read as a stand-alone. With great characters and a lot of action, any reader will be sure to never get bored.
