Blurb:

Menolly D’Artigo is half human, and half-fae, and a vampire. Along with her two sisters Camille, a witch with unpredictable magic, and Delilah, a werecat, they have been assigned to Earth from the Otherworld. A vampire serial killer is on the loose, and they turn to Menolly for the answers. Hungry ghosts are causing trouble, and Menolly strikes a deal with someone she shouldn’t. And now she turns to Roman, one of the oldest and most powerful vampires for help.

Let nothing evil or unknown
Enter within. Stay without
On pain of death, we cast you out.”

Review:

Oh it is time for Menolly again. I guess it is time for vampires to be relevant to the series again. I mean, at least with Blood Wyne, Galenorn has finally realized that she has to give Menolly a reason for existing as a lead character. Even if once again it really isn’t tied to the series as a whole.

Either these books are actually getting a bit better, or I’m starting to get an unhealthy attachment to parts of this series so that the rest doesn’t seem so bad anymore. I just didn’t mind Blood Wyne as much as I felt like I should. Despite it having nothing I really cared about, it just wasn’t that bad.

Blood Wyne was mostly about Menolly and her myriad relationships, with a little vampire stuff thrown in for good measure. Because Menolly is a vampire, didn’t you know? This time, Menolly is looking into a vampire serial killer. Which of course sends the already easily riled humans into a general tizzy. Human vs. Supe tensions are growing, and they weren’t that good before this happened.

The demons and dragonball spirit seal quest are notably absent.

I really don’t know what Galenorn has planned for Menolly, but I really hope it is something good. Because so far she has given this character nothing much. The big to-do about Blood Wyne centered around Camille. Again. I don’t even know why the author stuck to having three narrators in a cycle if every book was just going to be about Camille. Menolly and Delilah don’t deserve this.
