  • Book Description:

    “Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they imagined. Having quietly amassed their strength for centuries, the Vampiric Fae are determined to enslave the world. Now Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court, is rising again-and a long prophesied war is about to begin…

    Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, has returned home to New Forest, Washington, after learning that her family is in danger. The Indigo Court holds the city in fear. People are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. And when she is swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her to how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover.

    But Grieve has become enslaved by Myst’s court, and now, caught between two evils, the lovers must survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae queen, even as Cicely untangles the hidden secrets to her own heritage.”

    My Thoughts:

    Anyone who has been following my blog for a while knows that I am a long time fan of Yasmine Galenorn’s work, and this first novel in the Indigo Court series did not disappoint! I was immediately drawn into Cicely’s world and led on a marvelous ride through it. Galenorn’s characters are always written with depth and richness that makes you believe that they could exist somewhere. The world that she crafts is so filled with atmosphere, it becomes almost like a character of its own.

    Filled with characters that you fall in love with,  some that you love to hate, and excellent plotting and pacing equals a page flipping / no sleep night.  This book represents, at least to me, everything that makes an urban fantasy work. It’s also a perfect example of how to start a new series, as you don’t get lost in explanations of world-building. You get pulled right in and carried along for the supernatural ride of a lifetime.

    Cicely is a strong lead and Grieve is a mouth-watering alpha who is the perfect match for her. Witches, vampires, fae and vampiric fae make for interesting conflicts and interactions. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series! Night Veil is scheduled to be released June 2011.

    3. I have been following and anticipating this release since I learned of it. Being fairly new to the genre I thought this book would be a great introduction to Yasmine’s work instead of playing catch up with her other series- which originally caught my eye!!=)

      Thnx for a great review!
