Publisher Description

I'm Lyrical, and I was born to the Leannan Sidhe. But then, the King of the Kelpies kidnapped me (yeah, I know, a lot of "K's), and all hell broke loose. My mother begged Morgana, goddess of the Sea and the Fae, to save me. But my parents decided that I'm used goods, so I'm a princess without a kingdom.

I now work for the newly revamped Wild Hunt Agency--a PI firm, and boy are my colleagues quirky. For one thing, it's run by a wild demi-god named Yutani, who is as chaotic as his father, the Great Coyote. I find him too attractive, and a little dangerous. And now, life suddenly becomes a rollercoaster as the dragons lose their immortality and all hell breaks loose.

You don't have to have read the Wild Hunt Series in order to read Lyrical's books. For those who love quirky and a little bit twisted urban fantasy with hot guys, lots of action, and women who rule themselves.

Meet Lyrical!

In Tattered Thorns, the first book in the Night Queen series, Yasmine Galenorn introduces us to Lyrical. Once a princess of the light fae court, she’s now an outcast through no fault of her own. After escaping a brutal captivity, she finds herself in Seattle, the newest employee of The Wild Hunt agency.

The Wild Hunt will be familiar to Ms. Galenorn’s readers, since the agency has been the focus of a couple of other series. The Night Queen series is supposed to stand on its own, but I think readers might be a bit confused if they were to dive in here. A lot happened in the previous series, changing the world in ways that could prove difficult to follow. In this case, context really does matter, and it’ll be hard to come by if you aren’t familiar with the characters and plot points of the Wild Hunt books.

Yutani, a supporting character in the Wild Hunt books, now plays a bigger role. He’s the new head of the agency, and he and Lyrical are housemates. I enjoyed getting to know him better, and I’m eager to see what Ms. Galenorn has in store for him. Since he’s a demigod, I’m thinking he’s got quite a bit of power he hasn’t tapped into yet, and I’m excited to see if I’m right.

Like the books in the original Wild Hunt series, Tattered Thorns contains a bit of a mystery. Here though, the mystery isn’t quite as fleshed out as it could have been. I suggest readers view it as more of a side plot rather than the main focus of the story. That way, you’re not as likely to mind the quick and easy resolution.

Since this is the first book in a new series, there’s a lot we don’t know about Lyrical herself as well as the world she’s living in. There are big changes ahead, changes that are sure to test the limits of Lyrical, Yutani, and their coworkers. I’m looking forward to great things in future books, and while I don’t think this is Ms. Galenorn’s strongest work, there’s a lot to love here.
