Camille D’Artigo is half human, and half-fae, with unpredictable magic. Along with her two sisters Delilah, a werecat, and Menolly, a vampire, they have been assigned to Earth from the Otherworld. Bran, the son of Raven Mother and the Black Unicorn, is in town and Camille has to work with him. Which is awkward since she sacrificed the Black Unicorn. Aeval has sent Camille to look for a missing wife of the Fae nobility, which leads us back to Aleksais Psychic Network. Guess it is time to deal with them, huh?
“I nodded, my eyes firmly on the road. “Yeah, but it’s an old one; there hasn’t been anybody planted there for years.”
I feel like I don’t remember anything that happened in this book already. That is how little it all mattered in the grand scheme of the series.
Lots of things happen it is just… too much. It is too much. The fight against the Aleksais Psychic Network has come to a head, because they have come up yet again. Also we’re going up against the Lord of Ghosts, who is a god. This time for good, hopefully. But before we can do all of that, Camille and Morio must undergo a ritual so he becomes her Priest in magic. All while Aeval is sending Camille to look for a missing wife (which, surprise, is connected to Aleksais, go figure). And on top of that there is a new fae in town who can’t seem to stand her. And those are just the major points of the book.
It is too much.
I know things are heating up in this series, and I find I just don’t care. I am just so disconnected to the characters and the story. It feels like nothing that goes on is important. It feels like we are just stalling for time because we can. It feels like I’m being strung along as a reader, because nothing important can happen until the end of the series. So the author is just trying to hold off that ending for as long as possible. And I’m only on book 13 of 21.
Not even the relationships are keeping me going right now. Camille and her husbands are okay. Her relationship with her sisters are good. It is just way too disorganized. Galenorn shuffles these characters around all book so that the sisters can spend time with everyone when they’re in danger. It is just that we never get to see them when we aren’t heading off into danger. (I even joked that the author must use dice to figure out who goes where because it was so utterly random).
Random is the key to Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon. Because everything is random and nothing makes sense. We’re just in it to read it.
