SummaryAdd a Summary
Bone Magic" is the 7th installment into the Otherworld series, &, once again, Yasmine Galenorn has proven that she deserves a place in the urban fantasy genre. I would definitely read the first 6 books in this series before venturing into "Bone Magic" because the world building is complex, & the books are not completely self contained. Each book is narrated by one of the 3 D'Artigo sisters, & "Bone Magic" is Camille's turn. She & her sisters are still on the lookout for the remaining spirit seals, but Camille must also travel back to Otherworld to get Trillian. While visiting her home, she is summoned by the Black Beast, Father of the Dahns Unicorns, & takes on a new role in the war against Shadow Wing. Iris also travels to Otherworld, & we learn some interesting things about her past. Smoky's past is also brought to light, & the world of the dragons becomes very important.
I did have an issue with this book however, In most of the book Camille is having sex with all her guys and then getting all jealous of one of her entourage having an arranged fiancé. Can we say "Double Standards"? I am sorry, I just think if she expects her 3 men to accept the foursome without issues, then she needs to be a lot more open minded herself. Also the resulting lack of tension when Trillian returned was a little anticlimactic. Since Trillian is supposed to be her Alpha lover, I would have expected his reaction to have been somewhat more dramatic thereby increasing the turmoil and making this a much more exciting read. Neither him nor Smoky really said much at all. In fact none of the guys ever say anything showing they have a backbone to stand up to her. They do whatever she wants and Mario seems to get the raw end of the stick. He doesn’t even get to sleep in the bed anymore. I wouldn’t mind reading that the guys have someone else on the side truthfully.
Other then this I do enjoy this series and will read Harvest Hunting when it comes out.
