Before Camille can fulfill her destiny as Fae Queen of Dusk and Twilight, she needs to travel back to the Otherworld to find the fabled Keraastar Diamond. That magical gem will help her take control over the Keraastar Knights so we can go to the final battle against the demon lord, Shadow Wing. But first she’ll have to travel the dangerous Tygerian Mountains and face a magical trial by fire. If she succeeds, the life she leads will change in that instant. If she fails, well, let’s just say get ready for the forces of Shadow Wing to overcome all. But in the face of all adversity, Camille can count on her three husbands, her sisters and close family & friends to keep her from giving into her fear. Because this is war and the final battel against Shadow Wing is coming, whether they like it or not.
Wow, is all I can say in the first book in the final three books in this acclaimed and thrilling series by author Yasmine Galenorn. She delivers a pulse pounding ride from start to finish. I laughed, I cried, then smiled just a bit more as I flipped through the pages of MOON SHIMMERS. This author knows how to deliver a story and weave a spell around her readers right from the start. I adore this author’s books and this series was in fact my first taste of her writing. The worldbuilding is just phenomenal, the characters continue to grow and evolve as the series moves along to the final three books in the spirit seals story arc and the writing is just beyond compare. MOON SHIMMERS deliver so much within the pages of it that I cannot help but be eager for the next book which is Delilah’s story, Harvest Song (out in 2018).
Camille D’Artigo is a half-human, half-fae witch who has been on the front lines against Shadow Wing, a demon lord, bent on destroying Earth and the Otherworld. If Camille, her sisters, Delilah and Menolly along with their significant others, family and friends, can’t stop him then all will be lost. I fell in love with these three sisters right from the first book, Witchling. I was enamored by the fast pace storyline, intriguing concept of a story arc and characters that just brim to life with each book in the series you pick up. The author is a masterful storyteller and one who knows how to weave a spell around the readers as they turn the pages of MOON SHIMMERS and previous books in the series to captivate them till the very end of the book. With each page of the latest Otherworld novel, I was alongside these wonderful characters as they faced danger yet again but the core of who they are evolved and yet stayed the same. With each book in the series, the author continues the Spirit Seals arc and in the final triad of books, will deliver the biggest bang in the series and it starts with MOON SHIMMERS.
If you have been hesitant in trying this author out, I highly recommend reading her if you love urban fantasy/paranormal stories that steal your heart with captivating characters, an intriguing storyline that steals your senses and romance that will melt your panties off. I highly recommend this author if you enjoy dragons, fae, vampires and more as this author’s worldbuilding is phenomenal and on par to JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood or Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters Series. MOON SHIMMERS deliver a start in the final triad of books in this series and I, for one, am anxious to see how it ends. Run-don’t walk-to grab this enduring and well written series for your reading enjoyment.
