Format: Mass Market Paperback
Menolly is the third D'Artigo sister, the dark one. Since she was attacked by Dredge and made into a vampire, she sleeps by day--if nightmares are what anyone would call restless sleep. More than anything, she fears her demon nature and has made her sister Camille promise to stake her if she gets out of control.

When her sister's boyfriend, Chase, the head of the Faerie Human Crime Scene Investigation Unit of Seattle, comes into the Wayfarer covered in blood, she knows there's trouble. Coming in with blood to a supernatural bar is tantamount to offering yourself for dinner.

There's trouble afoot. Across the street at the local vintage theatre, there are four dead bodies and they've been drained by vampires. The bodies disappear before they can be collected and handled properly unleashing new vampires on the city.

Dredge has managed to cross over from Faery to Earth and he's plotting again to set up a vampire colony and make himself King. As each night passes, the vampires he's made are making more loyal subjects.

It's up to Menolly and her sisters to stop him. And as Grandmother Coyote says to Menolly: "You will have to do something you would never do..."

This book pushes my limits for violent content. Dredge's making of Menolly was particularly vicious and left the immortal vampire both physically and mentally scarred. In my opinion, this third novel has the best character development of the other three. I like Menolly as the "Blade of Justice". The rule suits her well.

There are elements from classical myths here: Grandmother Coyote, Morgaine, her lover Arturo, and Mordred as well as others make appearances.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The D'Artigo sisters, Camille, Delilah, and Menolly, are half-Fae, half-human operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency (O.I.A.) Camille is a Witch. Delilah is a Changeling Death Maiden. Menolly is a Vampire who chooses to keep a strong grip on her ethics. Though she is a predator, Menolly never harms the innocent and is actively helping to recruit other vampires to pledge the same.

When humans begin to go missing, then turn up as newly born vampires, it is up to the D'Artigo sisters and their battle weary friends to pull themselves together and confront the newest emerging threats. The one responsible for the newly risen is Dredge. Dredge is known as the scourge of the land. It was Dredge who tortured, and worse, to Menolly before turning her into a night walker. Menolly lives (no pun intended) for the night she finally catches and stakes the vile monster.

Good news is that the elfin queen has hired a mercenary bounty hunter, Rozurial "Roz", to help them. Roz is not just another merc though; he is an incubus who, at the young age of seven, saw Dredge slaughter his family. There is no doubt that Roz will do anything and everything within his power to help them defeat Dredge. Bad news is that Dredge has kidnapped a human female friend of the sisters'. Unless they can locate her - FAST - Menolly knows exactly what her evil sire will do.

***** Do not believe this story is just for fans of the undead and Fae. There are references and appearances to Merlin, Morgan LeFay, Grandmother Coyote (one of the Hags of Fate), Demonkin, and so much much more. There is something for everyone's taste. Be warned there are one or two short love scenes and not all are with opposite genders.

So it's here we learn about Menolly. If you haven't been keeping track I suggest you start with the first two books in this series. I liked this one mostly because of the action. Menolly is brought in by Chase to solve the murder of four vampire victims found in a local movie theater. Before they can figure out whose the cause, more bodies show up on a daily basis. If your in it this series for the romance, I think you would be disappointed. Even though Menolly gets over her "touching" problem, she doesn't FALL in love with anyone. Not like her sisters have in the previous novels. It's strickly let's-get-the-bad-guys. Rest assured fans, there will be a fourth novel. Apparently Galenorn is starting back to the first sister in her fourth novel. I'm thinking-rotation?

I struggled with this third entry in the story of the D'Artigo sisters that focuses on Menolly, the youngest sibling. The previous two books, Witchling (The Sisters of the Moon, Book 1)and Changeling (The Sisters of the Moon, Book 2), both did a better job of drawing me into the minds and stories of their characters, the older D'Artigo sisters Camille and Delilah.

The story this time focused on the escalation of the battle between the sisters and the demon Shadow Wing with the Earth invasion of the Elwing Blood Clan. Headed by Menolly's sire, Dredge, the clan proceeds to nab unsuspecting humans, creating a human/Fae crisis as people start to disappear. The stakes are raised when a close friend is taken. With the help of previous characters, like Morio the fox demon and Chase Johnson, plus the addition of the incubus demon, Roz, the sisters scour the city for new, blood-crazed vampires.

Ultimately, after another visit to the Otherworld, the story culminates with Menolly battling her inner demons and eventually her sadistic sire. Fair warning, a few random sexual encounters popped up that left me scratching my head. In the previous books, Galenorn did a nice job of weaving in these encounters. However, these parts of the story felt out of context and distracting. Perhaps it had something to do with Menolly's much darker and more painful past, versus her relatively innocent sisters. In spite of my disappointment, I'm still happy overall with series and looking forward to the fourth book.
