Night HuntresseBook - 2009
The D'Artigo sisters are half-human, half-Fae operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. A werecat who's one of the Autumn Lord's Death Maidens, Delilah has a funny feeling that the Hags of Fate enjoy seeing her squirm. First, her boyfriend, Chase, mutters another woman's name in his sleep. Then she discovers the Autumn Lord has a very special plan for her. But things go from bad to deadly when Karvanak--the Rāksasa--returns. In order to get his greedy hands on both the fourth Spirit Seal and his former associate, Vanzir, he kidnaps Chase. Now, the D'Artigo sisters have to find a way to rescue the man Delilah loves without risking the safety of both Otherworld and Earth...

The D'Artigo sisters are back for the fifth time with werecat Delilah to tell the story. With four previous stories there's a lot of background that has lead us up to this latest adventure. In short the three sisters have come to Earth from their home in Otherworld, have become Earth's protectors from the demons of the Sub-Realms and made some interesting friends and enemies along the way. Delilah was marked by the Autumn Lord in Changeling. Becoming his only living Death Maiden she has gained the ability to shapeshift not just into her little tabbycat form but into the form of a panther. But having a new form isn't really a gift it's part of her new job. Sending Delilah on a special mission he lets her know he has plans for her, one in particular she may not be sure she is ready for.
Meanwhile, Karvanak, the nasty demon the sisters have faced before, has kidnapped Chase (Delilah's full blooded human boyfriend) to use as a hostage. He wants the fourth Spirit Seal in exchange but there's no way in hell the sisters are willing to risk their homes for the life of one man. It's up to them to find a way to rescue Chase, protect the fourth Seal and destroy Karvanak before the tables get turned.
the only thing I didn't like, I found annoying was Even though the characters acknowledge early on in one major raid on a demon-infested house that their opponents probably have preternatural hearing AND already know they're there, they stand around in the hallway debating and planning strategy endlessly as the girls tend to treat the guys like 2nd class citizens, they tell them what to do ALWAYS they don't ask them.
as always Cassandra Campbell does a wonderful job as narrator..she IS the voice of the D'Artigo sisters.
