Publisher's Summary

We're the D'Artigo sisters: Half-human, half-Faerie, we are savvy - and sexy - operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But our mixed-blood heritage short-circuits our talents at all the wrong times. My sister Delilah shapeshifts into a tabby cat whenever she's stressed. Menolly's a vampire who is still trying to get the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Camille - a wicked-good witch. Except my magic is as unpredictable as the weather, which my enemies are about to find out the hard way.At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, a fellow operative, Jocko, has been murdered. Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, badass leader of the Subterranean Realms. He has made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground. Our assignment: Keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer. The demons figure they're in like Flynn. After all, with only my bumbling sisters and me standi g in the way, how can they miss? But we've got a secret for them: Faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D'Artigo girls.

Captivating First Book

If you love authors like Charlaine Harrison, Laurell K Hamilton and Kim Harrison you will love the universe that this author creates. The characters are intriguing and more complicated than they first seem to be. The plot will have you laughing, gasping, sitting on the edge of your seat and have you begging for more. I found myself very sleep deprived until I finished listening haha. I can not wait for the other books in this series.

Has a Young Adult feeling to it...

It waffles between feeling like it is young adult (scenes where characters act immaturely, or in a manner that seems to be trying to impart some sort of "moral" to the reader, rather than a manner that actually suits the situation in the book) and not feeling very young adult at all (some polyamorous loving going on here).

It has an interesting world and I sort of liked the concept, but... the "battles" were pretty lame (Estep's are better) and the main character... well, she tries too hard. And is always second guessing herself, and comes across as inconsistent (both in magical powers and mental strength) and yet is in charge of the OIA on Earth... seriously?

I already have the next book in the series so I'll read it but I don't think this story was strong enough that I'd buy it now if I hadn't already. Estep's Elemental Assassin series tells the same sort of story and feels less young adult, but if you want a fairy-based story that's well written and angst-full, not to mention mature - try Moning's Fever series.

- crazybatcow "I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)"
