Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The first in an engrossing new series about conflict in the magic modern world—as told by the half-human, half-Faerie D'Artigo sisters—the latest from Galenorn (One Hex of a Wedding) is a whimsical reminder of fantasy's importance in everyday life. Narrator Camille is a good witch with unpredictable powers who runs a Seattle bookstore while working as an Otherworld Intelligence operative, sent Earthside to keep an eye on things. When an operative from the Wayfaerer, a human/Faerie hangout, is killed, Camille springs into action with her sisters Delilah, a werecat, and Menolly, a freshly minted vampire. Tracing the murder back to evil demon leader Shadow Wing, the sisters find evidence of a far-reaching plot, but the Otherworld Intelligence Agency offers no help, stifled by bureaucratic red tape and a nasty Otherworld battle. Galenorn's gallery of rogues is an imaginative delight, each species and personality carefully crafted. Though the plot can drag, effusive characters and pretty writing ("I whispered, and the stars heard me from behind their cloud cover and answered") will lead readers through to the much-anticipated final battle.

From Booklist

Half human, half faerie, Camille and her two sisters act as Earthside operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency, a gig they feel is more a way of keeping them at a distance than any promotion. With the Faerie court in disarray and a new demon lord in the Subterranean Realms making a power play to rule the known worlds, the sisters find their shaky magic and their allies the only line of defense. An emerging voice in chick-lit fantasy and mystery, Galenorn, who also writes as India Ink, branches off into romantic territory in the first of her Sisters of the Moon series. Romance readers looking for romance balanced with other elements may be a bit disappointed that the love story ranks a distant second here. However, those who enjoy Kim Harrison or Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series will feel right at home. Well-crafted fantasy abounds here, along with great character chemistry and an old-fashioned gumshoe--detective feel. Nina Davis

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Attempt at a witty review title aside I think it conveys my overall opinion pretty well. If you love paranormals with heroines akin to Buffy or the Halliwell sisters this is right up your alley. Any comparison to literary heroines would bring those gals down just a little.

Meet the D'Artigo sisters, mom was a human, dad is fae. Oldest sister Camille, a witch, tells this first story. Operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency they are the protectors of the line between Otherworld (their home realm) and Earth. When a baddy from the Subterranean Realms threatens to upset the balance between the three realms Camille and sisters Delilah, a shapeshifter, and Menolly, a vampire, have to kick some bad guy butt. Throw in the rich setting of the Pacific Northwest and some hot guys to keep the lust tension going and you have the perfect light reading.

While not quite as well built, planned and plotted as other heroines in the genre don't count these girls out. Characters like Rachel Morgan or Mercy Thompson are the caloric equivalent of a regular cola and these would make a great diet substitute. Lighter reading for in between the meatier series's. Enjoy!

Three sisters, half human, half fae work for the Otherworld Investigative Services and are stationed in Seattle.

The good: The worldbuilding is excellent. Full blooded humans (FBH) live side by side with creatures from the Other World including, but not limited to giants, sidthe, cryptos, weres and vampires. Unlike most paranormal books the author makes an effort to make the sidthe, weres and vampires different than humans. FBHs are both facinated and repulsed by the recently revealed fae, some gawk and other protest the fae's presence on earth. The unrest in the Other World is completely believable as is the demon's desire to invade Earth and the Other World.

The bad: Although the relationships between the sisters is believable and the cast of characters is enjoyable, the relationship between Camille and her boyfriends is not. I found it impossible to believe that after six years of celibacy she would take two lovers, and consider a third, in the course of one week. Also the story is set up so that Camille's magic shorts out, but it always seems to happen in the most helpful manner.

In my opinion the book is misclassified. It is paranormal or urban fantasy, not a paranormal romance. There is no relationship resolution and to be honest the romantic entanglements are the least important part of the story. For those looking for a romance novel, this isn't for you. For those looking to start a new Urban Fantasy series, I can definately recommend Witchling.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Where to start? This unoriginal book is an attempt to cash in on the rising popularity of urban paranormal fantasy (done well by authors like Laurell K. Hamilton or Jim Butcher) but falls way, way short. Nothing is believable, not the characters (who all talk exactly the same - like a teenager, from the human to the ancient dragon), the relationships, or the setting itself. There's a huge lack of successful world-building here. But the absolute worst thing would have to be the dialogue. I can't say how many times I wanted to toss this book for the trite and cheesy dialogue alone. If a friend had given me this book asking if I thought it could be published, I would have said absolutely not. Yet here it is, and people are actually giving it good reviews??? I wouldn't even expect bad young adult fiction to be THIS bad. (I like YA fiction.)

Other examples of bad writing: a couple of the bad guys' names are "Bad A** Luke" and "The Psycho Babbler". The book is always understating or overstating things - characters laugh at inappropriate times and I can't even count how many times the main character "shakes" herself every time she has a [gasp] thought. Even a couple gratuitous sex scenes couldn't save this book. One of my favorite examples of awful writing... "My arm burned like a mother-sucker." Direct quote, no editing on my part.

The sad thing is that I actually wanted to like this book. Galenorn writes good pagan nonfiction. Sadly, she should stick with that. Big time pass on this series - I won't be reading the others. The only reason I finished it was because it was a gift. If I'd stopped after 30 pages like I wanted to, I would have settled on 2 stars for effort, but after slogging through this waste of paper, I'm giving it 1 for my suffering.

There's nothing better on a cold winter day than a cup of steaming cocoa and a good book. WITCHLING definitely qualifies as a good book--one of the best of 2006. And if reading about Camille D'Artigo and her sisters' exploits doesn't get your blood pumping, well you'd better watch out because Menolly might want a snack. (She's very neat about it, though.)

The book is set in contemporary greater Seattle area and features the three D'Artigo sisters who are half human and half fae. Each has a special gift although because they're half-bloods, their gifts aren't exactly reliable. Camille is a witch, Delilah shapeshifts to a kitty, and Menolly is a vamp. The sisters work for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency and must find another operative's murderer. But when the murderer turns into three--demons, that is, things get a little exciting. I really don't want to say much about the plot because each chapter is a discovery, and the reader will want to make that discovery himself.

Who doesn't like murder, suspense, dragons, demons, and a baby gargoyle, all mixed in with a good dose of humor? WITCHLING is an exciting, compelling read. The worldbuilding is incredible and the characters are spellbinding, no pun intended. I heartily recommend this book and am eagerly looking forward to the next in the Sisters of the Moon series, CHANGELING.
