About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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. Yet I stress that these are short and not too graphic for those readers who are too phobic on the subject. The story is non-stop action and has deep, dark plots that kept me up reading long past my bed time. Here be Dark Fantasy with a unique twist. YES! *****
Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.
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. My deduction for the one star is because these novels tend to stir in a lot of characters into the mix without fully developing the world.
"Darkling" is the third book in Ms. Galenorn's serial novels about the D'Artigo sisters. For the most part, this story stands alone; however, if you really enjoy the world Galenorn has created, you may want to read the other two novels as well.
Witchling (Book 1)
