KING OF THE OTHERWORLD

 

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.

About the book:

 

When Jessa Talbot’s boss offered her a promotion, she agreed—no questions asked. Her family needed the money, but fighting the attraction she feels for her brooding employer is tough. Worse, she instantly bonds with his infant son she’s caring for. But this is a temporary solution and she can’t get attached to either of them.

 

Finnegan Dean is cursed. He’s a nicely dressed monster, the wolf inside always looking for a way out. But there are two things he and his wolf agree on. They must protect baby Oscar and Jessa—his mate. While the wolf hungers to seal their bond, Finn fights the instinct. After all, if he really cares for her, he’d never doom her to the life he lives.

Falling for the Billionaire Wolf and His BabyFalling for the Billionaire Wolf and His Baby by Sasha Summers My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Finnegan AKA Finn needs help in the worst way. He calls upon his employee who needs the money most. Jessa turns out to be a nice surprise. She is just what he needs. J

 

Jessa is shocked her boss needs her in any way. She has a lot to learn about Finnegan and what he is asking. There are secrets being kept by both of them. Maybe taking a chance can lead to so much more.

 

Really fast paced and enjoyable book. The sweet story and sexy times make this a keeper. Hoping to see these incredible characters in upcoming stories. The Blood Moon Brotherhood is full of hottie testosterone!

Finnegan AKA Finn needs help in the worst way.  He calls upon his employee who needs the money most.  Jessa turns out to be a nice surprise.  She is just what he needs.

Really fast paced and enjoyable book.  The sweet story and sexy times make this a keeper.  Hoping to see these incredible characters in upcoming stories.  The Blood Moon Brotherhood is full of hottie testosterone!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
