Otherworld - Kirsten Miller,Jason Segel *I received this book from BloggingForBooks for review. This does not affect my review.*

I have seen this book around and jumped at the chance to read it. Going in, the only thing I know was that it was about a game that was immersive and that by playing called for you to leave your body and the real world behind. I loved the parts of the story that was in the game. Fun and unpredictable, they were well written and made reading the book fly by. The real world parts were a bit slower but still thrilling. I enjoyed the intrigue and struggles of the real world added in. It was a bit more political than I normally read, but the overall story was written in a way that kept me reading.

Otherworld Challenger - Jane Godman

Falls soundly into Arthuriana.  There's a race to find the true heir to the Faerie Crown before the evil king Moncoya (my brain kept seeing Montoya and flickers of script from The Princess Bride, which reduced my fear) returns.  His daughters are working against him and they both are trying to create lives away from him and his influence.  Princess Vashti is determined to help Jethro de  Loix in the quest to find the heir, but what they find on the Isle of Avalon will change things.


The relationship between the two is interesting and well done and for the most part I found it a compelling story, however parts were a bit strained and it could have been better.


This has vampires, werewolves, faerie, witches, supernatural, and some ghost action from Jethro's parents.  I'm going to use this for Ghosts.

Otherworld Challenger - Jane Godman

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures 


Otherworld Challenger

Otherworld #3
Jane Godman
Paranormal Romance
Harlequin Nocturne
September 1st 2016




The race is on to find the true heir to the faerie crown before the evil king Moncoya returns from exile. Mercenary necromancer Jethro de Loix will find the challenger to Moncoya's crown...for a price. One million mortal dollars. Outraged at Jethro's audacity, Princess Vashti, Moncoya's daughter, arranges to accompany him on his mission.


Jethro doesn't want company, especially not from Moncoya's belligerent, pampered daughter. But as their journey pits them against evil forces, their animosity soon gives way to an overwhelming physical attraction. When the trail ends on the legendary Isle of Avalon, can the pair face down the evil sorceress Morgan le Fay to claim a future they'd long denied themselves?

Otherworld Challenger is book three in the Otherworld series. I prefer to read series books in order. It’s a little quirk I have, but it doesn’t always happen that way. The Otherworld Challenger was my first experience in the Otherworld series and with Jane Godman. I was pulled in, captivated, and enjoyed the storyline and characters. I feel that this novel can and does stand well on it’s own.


Vashti, Princess Vashti is the daughter of the proclaimed king. She feels no emotions and now that things have changed in the supernatural world, with her sister marring, she is starting to see things differently, but still struggles with emotions and contact.


Jethro, Jethro de Loix is a necromancer who is on the hunt for the true heir to the fairy kingdom. He is a man of mystery to himself and others.


Vashti and Jethro where likable characters. I had fun with their strong dislike and barbs they took at each other, which of course leads them to truly unravel their feelings and realize they actually like each other. It’s the enemies to lovers storyline. They had some pretty interesting interactions. I liked watching Vashti’s character change from uncaring to caring and I liked Jethro’s strong will. The plot was intense and interesting with their journey leading them to Avalon where revolutions are revealed and love blooms; between our reluctant characters. We learn a lot on this journey to find the true heir of the faire kingdom.


Otherworld Challenger was a delightful and entertaining read. I’m curious now to check out the previous books in the Otherworld series and to see what comes next.


Rated: 4 Stars

Panther Prowling (Otherworld #17) by Yasmine Galenorn
Panther Prowling (An Otherworld Novel) - Yasmine Galenorn

Delilah is ready to party – it’s her sister’s Camille’s birthday and Menolly has just managed to re-open her bar; in the lull in the war in the Otherworld they can have a break; a night off


Until their human cousin, Daniel, runs into their bar chased by an angry Viking ghost.


Unfortunately their professional thief relative has acquired a cursed and haunted sword – which comes with a family curse and a whole lot of dangerous haunting and consequences which only his magical cousins are equipped to deal with.





This series is huge. It has run for a huge number of books. It has an absolutely enormous cast of character. It has a huge world setting – several huge world settings. We have several metaplots all running alongside each other, all intertwining and related and touching on each other. And we have three protagonists all with their own lives and conflicts and relationships. We have a household that not only has the three D’Artigo sisters but has Camille’s three husbands, has Menolly’s wife, has Delilah’s husband. We have Hannah and Vanzir and Rozuriel and Iris and her husband and her twins and Chase and his daughter and then the gargoyle Maggie. And all of them have things going on. And this is without looking at Roman, Rozuriel’s ex-wife, Smoky and Shade’s extended families, the fae queens, Morgaine and the whole Arthurian legend group, the various powers of the Otherword and then loads of friends and neighbours dotted around the city…


We have a lot. We have so much. This world is huge and rich and full of lots of important characters each with their own stories and enough details to give each of them a realness and a presence that gives the whole story and world depth


But my gods there’s a lot. And when we were introduced to the sisters’ human family a couple of books ago part of me cringed because there was no need for this to add to this already very full world and these sisters’ already very full lives with very full missions. Especially when it turns out that dear brother Daniel is a master thief ex-special forces magical specialist – which means that’s a whole lot more complexity and storylines and distractions added to what I already a very full series.


Which is the feeling I had through this book – we had Daniel and the sword and Viking ghosts to try and deal with but it felt very peripheral to the sisters’ lives. And we had moderately high stakes to make sure they pay attention to it –but it felt like a distraction because there’s a lot of other things going on. In fact, the attack on their house almost felt like a way to drag them into the story again and make it all feel more relevant to them since we haven’t really built that much relationship with Daniel yet. With Camille’s new role with the Earthside Fae courts and Delilah’s issues with the Autumn Lord which also includes some expanding powers and possible consequences and we have love triangle issues with Hannah and Rozuriel with more looking at what it means to be an incubus since we’ve been mentioning it for a while but never really seen it developed. And there’s some sorcerer following Camille around which is important or worrisome but it’s mentioned at the beginning and we don’t really return to it. We add in a dose of



All this time we still technically have the War in Otherworld and with Shadowing but I think the last time that played a relevant role in the book was in Haunted Moon – book 13; it’s now on book 17. And I get having breaks or occasional distractions but this is a very long deviation from the main metaplot especially since it’s so random, unrelated to that main metaplot and just feeling quite random an inclusion. It also kind of leaves me wondering just how much supernatural activity there can be in Seattle – because these aren’t things specifically targeting the sisters or because of the war – it’s just random supernatural stuff happening in this city ALL THE TIME.

So begins this tantalizing volume featuring three of the most intriguing members of the American Pack—a hierarchical founding family where bloodlines mean everything and each day presents a new, thrilling, and often deadly challenge. For as he grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his mentor at every turn, Clayton must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics—including showing his brutal archnemesis who the real Alpha is.
