For Camille, life has gotten exceedingly chaotic as they battle Shadow Wing and his minions. But this time the Lord of the Ghosts is causing mayhem in the Netherworld and on Earthside. Add in being an unwilling liaison between the Earthside OIA and Bran, the son of Raven Mother and The Black Unicorn, well let’s just say things just got hectic. But danger looms as the final battle with Gulakah is looming and it will be up to Camille and her fox-demon husband, Mario to battle this god for if they fail, life as they know it will be over.

I got to admit with each book in this wonderful action packed series; I am drawn in and left wanting more. Ms. Galenorn delivers a pulse pounding ride from start to finish in HAUNTED MOON, where the stakes are even higher than ever. Between missing witches, zombies roaming all over Seattle and more, Camille along with her husbands, sisters and all their friends and lovers come out to put things right. The twists and turns this author delivers in each of the sister’s books are spellbinding. Each book builds on the next and so forth. Even with each sister narrating their own stories, the reader gets drawn in and rooting for them to succeed even as you flip the pages to see what happens next. Ms. Galenorn is a talented storyteller who knows how to keep her readers glued to the edge of their seats, eager for more in her Otherworld series.

The characters are quite enjoyable and run the gauntlet of personalities and more. They completely charm you with their smirks, one liner’s and more even as they band together to face someone much more powerful then all of them combined. I particularly adore Camille, the witch who has three husbands who love protect her. Each in this quartet gives something to the other and lives in harmony together. The scenes where Camille is being cherished, pampered or just taken care of by them leaves me sighing in pleasure long after I turn the page. Each book in Camille’s point of view gives the reader a glimpse on what is coming up for her next with a hint here, a hint there. The author does an amazing job in keeping the reader focused on Camille and her path even as the danger heats up. The quieter scenes with family and friends kept the balance between danger and peace throughout the book and left me humming in pleasure.

HAUNTED MOON delivers one wild ride from start to finish. I suggest you read this series in order as each book capitalizes on the next one and moves the storylines along. All the characters, major and minor, play a part even if it is a paragraph here or there. They are well written, multi-dimensional and deliver some intriguing personalities that can have me laughing one minute and biting my nails the next. If you enjoy an action packed paranormal series with a wide variety of paranormal creatures and myths and legends, then grab Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld Series and settle in for some amazing adventures with the D’Artigo sisters and their many friends and lovers. I guarantee you won’t want to put this series down, even to sleep. It is quite addicting. I can’t wait to see what happens next for the entire cast of characters I have grown to love and enjoy.
