Review: Shaded Vision by Yasmine Galenorn

Shaded Vision is the eleventh installment in the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn and a Jove Paranormal Romance.

Book Blurb:

It’s the night before Valentine’s Day and we’re preparing for our friend Iris’s wedding.  But when we get word that the Supe Community Council has been bombed, things get really ugly.

The coyote shifters - the Koyanni - are back, and Newkirk, their new leader, has joined forces with a group of rogue sorcerers.  Then, just as we think things can’t get worse, the demon lord Shadow Wing sends in a new front man, and life really goes to hell...

My thoughts:

Iris and Bruce got married!  For me, that was the highlight of the book.

Delilah is the sister I have connected with the least, and Shaded Vision is told from her POV.  I just find her boring and to be quite honest, Shaded Vision was a bit boring as well.  Especially after the last book, Courting Darkness.

I’m ready for a showdown with Shadow Wing - instead of his minions.  I would like for this portion of the series to move along a little faster - instead of hanging overhead like a faceless threat.

Chase found out a little about his heritage - which was intriguing - he also made a last minute announcement that I am eager to find out more about.

Hannah is settling in with everyone - and may be getting cozy with Roz - I hope so, for both their sakes.

Shamas also made an announcement - his didn’t go over so well, especially with Camille.

All in all, the personal stories in Shaded Vision had more of an impact on me than the plot.

I give Shaded Vision 2 out of 5 stars. 

Menolly’s book is next, Shadow Rising, coming November 2012.  I am looking forward to that installment.

I've only read two of her books but I liked both of them.

I've never connected with Delillah either, Michelle. Camille has always been my favorite. She seems to make the toughest choices and go through much more than the rest of them.
