145) Harvest Hunting by Yasmine Galenorn

The Blurb -

We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae means our supernatural talents can go haywire at any time. My sister Camille is a wicked good witch whose life recently took a drastic turn. Menolly's a vampire who's still getting the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Delilah, a werecat with a very interesting love life. But life isn't all fun and games. We're on the trail of the demon general who has decided that we've become quite a nuisance...

It's Samhain, and the Autumn Lord has called for my training to begin with the Death Maidens...and I find that I like it. But we've got problems: werewolves are going missing and a new magical drug, "Wolf Briar," is being used as a weapon. My dear Chase and I have come to a delicate crossroads. And most dangerous of all: Stacia Bonecrusher has put a bounty on our heads. Now it's a race to take out the demon general before she realizes the sixth Spirit Seal is within her reach...

My Review -

Book 8 in the Sisters of the Moon series and things couldn't be better. Again I found myself transported into this amazing world where the Otherworld and the humans try and live side by side. This time Delilah has the reins and it was great to be with her again. I love the werecat sister and I still can't decide which sister I like the most. They all have their own special attractions but if I really had to name one then it will always be the cat that wins :)

In this series the author has created a special world for the sisters and their extended family. I am always eager to go visit them even if it is a little dangerous. As usual there was lots of action, some surprises and even a new character that I really want to get to know better. Some changes come about and of course the sisters, as always, kicked some evil butt. What else would you expect from these glorious women?

The story may be getting a little complex but it is still fascinating and addictive. Sometimes dark but definitely delicious this series is on my must read list and I can't wait for book 9, Blood Wyne, when it comes out early next year. Each sister is special and it is nice to hear and see things from a new perspective in each book. There are still quite a few unanswered questions and I hope to hear some answers in the next book. I really need to know more about Iris!

Not only does the author have a super imagination but she also writes with enough depth and detail to take the reader to places they wouldn't have dreamed of seeing before. The descriptive but fluid writing is always easy to get lost in and I always find myself reading just a little bit longer than I have time for when it comes to Yasmine's books. Full of magic, mayhem and mystery there are just so many different paranormal and fantastic beings involved in this series to keep me interested. I can't imagine what else the series has up its sleeves!

I can only continue to highly recommend these books and hope that others enjoy it as much as I do. I hope there will be a few more books to come in this series but I suspect that as the battle comes closer to an end, so will the series. All in all this is one of the best Paranormal Urban Fantasy series I have had the pleasure of reading. Make sure you start at the beginning if you haven't already tried these books. This is not a series you can jump into anywhere.
