Yasmine lives in the Seattle WA area with her husband and is the mother of four cats.
Because so many people ask, you pronounce her name this way: Yaz-mihn (NOT Jasmine--it's a "Y", not a "J"). Last name is pronounced: Gal-eh-norn The accent is on the first syllable.

The plots of Witchling(1), Changeling(2) & Darkling(3) established 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 without. The three D'Artigo sisters and their friends have been fighting to protect their home, Otherworld, and their new home in Seattle (in the Earth realm) from the demon forces of Shadow Wing. There's civil war going on back home in Otherworld and there are twelve Spirit Seals hidden on earth that could open the portals between all three realms letting loose the demons of the Sub-realms into the others, destroying all life as we know it.
Returning to Camille as narrorator (she narrorated Witchling) we're picking up with the protection of the realms but there's a whole new cast of characters and troubles. A royal prince of the unicorns has come to give Camille a special gift, one that only she can wield, but first they have to find the pixie who was carrying it who was captured. Morgaine, yes *that* Morgaine, is also on the hunt for this mystical hierloom and she's camped out near Smoky's on Mt. Rainier annoying the crud out of the dragon. She's intent on raising the Earthside fae's courts back to life and needs Camille to help her do it. Then there's Benjamin, a human who has seen visions of a stone and demons, his family thinks he's crazy, but Morio thinks there's more to his visions than the ramblings of a nutcase.Read more ›
Nicely balanced interpersonal, plot and erotic elements. The characters have improved steadily and are now compelling. The plot is a little linear but still excellent. The observation that victories are not unalterable is very good.
Just short of truly outstanding saved by some editorial errors, and some factual errors (an AK47 spews bullets not ammunition and there seems to be some confusion between brands and tattoos (they feel very different) as well as the plot could have been a little stronger (although it was very good)).
The author, publisher and cover artist are to be congratulated as the cover does a good job of depicting the man character.
When Camille's other sister Menolly the vampire joins them as well as Iris the priestess, Feddrah explains that his aide Mistletoe the pixie carried an item to deliver to her, but the three thugs interceded. Mistletoe regained the item, the powerful horn of the rare black unicorn. Meanwhile a Raksasas Persian Demon is apparently in town causing further havoc while Smoky the dragon arrives to remind Camille she owes him a week of sex, but has need for her to talk with Morgaine who has camped in his barrow before he makes the fae his lunch. Camille fears Morgaine might be trying to raise the former Seelie Queen Titania or the former Unseelie Queen Aeval for some purpose. Rounding out the visits is one of Camille's two lovers Trillian, but her other Morio remains missing. However, her ultimate fear is that the demon Shadow Wing will find the seals that keep the portals closed and be able to enter earthside and otherworld destroying both.
The various types of paranormal species seem genuine in the Seattle setting. The action never slows down for a moment and although the story line builds on threads from the previous "sisters of the moon" books, DRAGON WYTCH can stand alone. The climax is quite a shocker making the fascinating tale even more spellbinding even if readers need a scorecard to keep track of the myriad of key players supporting the prime star.
What I liked about Dragon Wytch was its openness about Camille's sexuality. It's one of the things that I liked about the previous entries and it continues to be one of my favorite elements of the series. This is a romance and as such, the interpersonal relationships between the characters will always be important. However, Camille is never really defined by her relationships with the men in her life, nor does she spend a lot of time whining over the guys after her or the overabundance of affection she seems to receive. In the past I've compared this to Laurell K Hamilton's series, partially because she's one of Galenorn's inspirations. I can't help but draw another parallel between the two authors, as Galenorn is better at depicting poly relationships than Hamilton is. There are a few characters in Camille's life that I'm not really that fond of, namely Smokey, but by large everyone treats each other as an equal. Part of what's bugged me about Hamilton's depictions of poly is that nobody's really equal and there's a lot of manipulation that could be seen as detrimental to the health (physical and mental) of all involved. You don't really see that with Galenorn's characters. There are a few concerns here and there, but by large everyone actively tries to get along. It's not perfect, but it's one of the better mainstream depictions of poly and one I'd recommend over Hamilton's romances.
What sort of bugs me is that at times the plot felt a little thin in places.Read more ›
