Panther Prowling

Yasmine Galenorn. Jove, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-0-515-15476-4
Stormy skies over Seattle bring multiple conflicts for Galenorn’s half-Fae D’Artigo sisters and their allies in the 17th Otherworld urban fantasy novel (after Priestess Dreaming). Delilah D’Artigo, a werecat, Death Maiden, and private eye, is attending a birthday party for witch sister Camille at vampire sister Menolly’s Wayfarer Bar & Grill when the festivities are dramatically interrupted by their human cousin, Daniel, who’s recovering from being attacked by a ghost. Daniel reveals that he is in possession of, and possibly possessed by, an antique Viking sword that he liberated from its rightful owner. Naturally, he seeks his cousins’ assistance, since they lead the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. Galenorn deftly manages her vast cast of supporting characters while weaving continuing story arcs through immediate crises and romantic and family interludes, creating a satisfying installment as she approaches the conclusion of the series. Agent: Meredith Bernstein, Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency. (Feb.)
