Night Seeker by Yasmine Galenorn

Night Seeker, the exciting third installment in the fascinating Indigo Court series, picks up just two days after the events at the end of book two. With Veil House, the home and base half-witch/half-fae Cicely shares with her cousin, Rhiannon, having been effectively rendered uninhabitable for the time being, the group fighting against Myst and her vampiric fae (shadow hunters) now lives in a warehouse. After salvaging some supplies from the fire-ravaged Veil House, Cicely and company enjoy an evening of rest before three day-runners for the vampire contingent in town show up in an attempt to kidnap Cicely and Rhiannon.

Killing two of the intruders and capturing one, the group learns that Rhiannon’s ex, Leo, who works for Geoffrey, the vampire Regent, has been turned and seeks to control the two women. Realizing that they need help now more than ever, Cicely and her friends seek to enlist the aid of the Consortium, the governing body for magic-users in the country, though Geoffrey had warned Cicely to not do so. Between trying to wrest control away from Myst and her shadow hunters who strive to turn the Earth into perpetual Winter, walking a thin edge with the vampires, and searching for the heartstone of Lainnule, the Summer Queen, before Myst gets there first, Cicely and her band of warriors have their work cut out for them.

Though Night Seeker, like its predecessors, also contains an array of intriguing characters, one of the most remarkable features of this installment as well as the series remains the beautiful and terrible world Galenorn creates. Striking and gorgeous beauty infused with violence and dread characterizes the imagery describing the fae world of the novel, and readers will swear they feel the biting cold of Myst’s realm as they turn the pages. Cicely learns more about her heritage, and there are a few surprises along the way. Fans of both paranormal romance and urban fantasy will find much to enjoy here. This reviewer looks forward to book four, Night Vision, due July 2013.
