Shadow Rising is the twelfth book in the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn and the fourth book told from Menolly's POV.
We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy ex-operatives from the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. Being half human, half-Fae means our powers go haywire at all the wrong times. My sister Camille is a wicked-good witch, with three gorgeous husbands. My sister Delilah is a two-faced werecat and a Death Maiden. And me? I'm Menolly, a jian-tu turned vampire, and I'm dating a sexy werepuma and the godfather of vampires. Unfortunately, life is about to get very, very nasty...
Nerissa and I can't decide on what we want to do for our promise ceremony and we're bickering like an old married couple. My sisters and I head to Otherworld for a meeting with Queen Asteria, where we discover that Shadow Wing has dispatched Telazhar to reignite the Scorching Wars. And as soon as we return back home, we find Gulakah, the Lord of Ghosts, waging a battle to control the magical beings over Earthside. Caught between two terrible enemies in a battle spanning two worlds, we can only hope we're in time to stop all-out annihilation.

I am looking forward to this installment. The books told from Menolly's POV are some of my favorites. I do wonder if they've changed the cover model for Menolly though - below is the first cover that featured Menolly's POV:
The cover of Darkling has Menolly looking a little older, a little edgier. The cover for Shadow Rising has a younger, more innocent looking Menolly. I think I prefer the edgier Menolly - that is how I picture her in my mind.
What do you think about the differences in the cover model?
