Shadow Silence – A Yasmine Galenorn Review

IMG_9032.jpg

**ARC Received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Yasmine Galenorn has been one of the most descriptive writers I’ve ever read. Her magical worlds fall off the page and create such beautiful imagery that I always want to jump right into the story.

For the second book in the Whisper Hollow Series, Shadow Silence,  we come back to Kerris Fellwater as a cold winter begins to settle into the town. Everyone knows the towns rules regarding the Lady of the Lake and the victims she claims. But when her best friend, Peggin, is in her clutches, Kerris must do whatever it takes to save her.

Peggin falls under the spell of the Lady and nearly dies multiple times. Kerris is so incredibly intelligent when it comes to putting the puzzle pieces together. A dream that leads to an accident, which then leads to a long dead secret hidden away beneath ANOTHER secret. Peggin was brave in her withstanding to survive the Lady’s curse. And sneaking in the background are the mangy Hounds with whom we may have a major player coming to visit Whisper Hollow soon. CAN’T WAIT!

I absolutely love Kerris Fellwater. I have managed to fall for each character Galenorn has created but Kerris has become my all time favorite. She’s so solidly strong and supportive in her beliefs and values that I find myself wishing to be more like her. The continuing romance between her and her guarding, Bryan was perfectly laid out. How the two discover that they’ve fallen for one another is just beautifully told.

On par with Galenorn and her magnificently terrifying companion: we finally meet Veronica, Queen of the Dead. In what has to be one of THE best sounding introductions EVER. 3 words: THRONE OF BONES. I tend to be wary of these creatures Galenorn’s main characters must partner with and yes Veronica is deadly but I want to see her in all her glory! Hoping there’s more to come with her in the series.

Love love loved getting the chance to review Shadow Silence and can’t wait for more from Yasmine Galenorn in the Whisper Hollow Series!

Until next review…Happy Bingeing Beauties!

FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM – A Yasmine Galenorn Review

image

“Queen of Otherworld Tales, Yasmine Galenorn’s latest Flight From Mayhem in her Fly By Night series is downright eerie.”

image

**ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review**

Things have been steady at Fly By Night investigations, but when cases fall into the team’s lap alongside a friend’s troubles and a ghostly neighbor, it goes hectic fast.

Bette’s always been the rock steady go to gal at Fly By Night Investigations for Shimmer, but she’s worried a dear friend may be in danger, and her gut is right. Elderly Fae have been slowly going missing for weeks and Bette feels her friend has been this methodic criminal’s next victim. Things are much worse than anyone could’ve imagined; there’s a killer on the loose and it’s secret weapon for getting away with crimes this long will twist your mind!

With a killer on the loose, Shimmer can’t shake the odd sensations she gets from the abandoned house across the street. With some of her own investigating she discovers a ghost named Mary, who’s family has a tragic past. Murder. Death. And an ominous presence in the house that doesn’t like Shimmer sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. She may need to call on some friends in order to handle this case with care.

Not only does Shimmer have to handle crazy investigations, her dear friend Tonya is down from Port Townsend with some disturbing revelations. She things she’s being stalked and fears for her safety. Add in Alex’s crazy ex-succubus girlfriend, Glenda, threatening Alex and Shimmer’s relationship and Shimmer is in for one stress filled ride.

Yasmine spins her Earthside Otherworld tale once again! I love reading her books as everything comes alive right off the page. Not only does she have an incredible way of describing the environment, her characters are so unique and otherworldly (no pun intended!) that they create a sense of awe but their relationships and feelings are so relatable. The books had her classic fantasy and supernatural feel but the mystery and suspense involved with investigations and crazy stalkers kept the action up the whole book! I can’t wait for the next installment!

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!
