Night Vision by Yasmine Galenorn

Night Vision (An Indigo Court Novel) by Yasmine Galenorn Night Vision, the terrific fourth installment in the compelling Indigo Court series, begins shortly after the events at the end of the previous book. Cicely, wind witch and owl-shifter, and her cousin Rhiannon, when emerging from the forest receive a message from Ulean, the wind elemental bound to Cicely, that there is trouble at home. The two women race to the house, finding Luna, their friend and fellow witch, being held captive by two vampires who state they are there to deliver a message from Geoffrey, a rogue vampire. The two intruders leave, and Cicely, Rhia, and Kaylin, their friend, check on Luna, who appears to be fine though she suffered some blood loss.

After the attack at the house, Cicely and Rhia go to meet with Regina, the vampire serving as emissary from the Crimson Court, and tell her about what happened. Not pleased to see Lannan, Regina’s brother who has an unwelcome interest in Cicely, the two women are nonetheless pleased when Regina promises more guards at the house. Unfortunately, the emissary also shares the bad news that Crawl, an ancient vampire seer, has gotten free from his captivity and now roams the streets of the town, one more bit of trouble the group does not need.

Despite having chased Myst off temporarily, Cicely has several concerns and situations to deal with: the threat posed by Geoffrey and Leo, Crawl on the loose, attacks by Shadow Hunters and rogue vampires that result in injuries and death, all while seeking to come to terms with her impending initiation as a Fae queen.

Once again, the reader’s visit to the world both lovely and vicious depicted in the novel reveals a bit more about the fascinating Fae society that serves as the base of the Indigo Court series, Galenorn peeling back another layer in each book. Aware that she must do so in her role as Queen of Ice and Snow, Cicely begins to learn how to navigate the three worlds she has become enmeshed in: Fae, vampire, and magic-born human. The action of the tale moves quickly and smoothly due to the author’s deft pacing, and fans of the series will likely be pleased with the resolution of one ongoing plot point. Though it will be a bit sad to leave Cicely and company behind, this reviewer very much looks forward to the final volume, Night’s End, due in July, 2014.
