Both Earthside and Otherworld are in for a rocky trip in Galenorn's exciting new series. The tale is full of magical intrigue and adventure with a touch of passion and fascinating characters. Told in first-person perspective by one of three half-human/half-faerie sisters, this story sets up intriguing possibilities for the future. Galenorn promises to be one of the major bright lights of the paranormal genre.

After humans were made aware of the existence of the Otherworld and its inhabitants, the Otherworldly Intelligence Agency was formed to keep track of potential trouble. The three half-faerie sisters, Camille, a witch, Delilah, a shape-shifter, and Menolly, a vampire, are sent Earthside as OIA agents.

When another agent is murdered by demons who should not have entered this realm, Camille's ex-lover, Trillian, shows up bearing more bad news: The powerful demon overlord Shadow Wing is sending in his advance agents as he prepares to destroy both worlds. The sisters will need all the allies they can muster, especially since Camille's magic has a bad habit of misfiring under pressure. (BERKLEY, Oct., 304 pp., $6.99)
