Book 14 in the Sisters of the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn, told by Delilah. Grandmother Coyote has come to the girls after finding that the balance of things is off and it's due to daemon energy coming out of a building in Seattle. She has charged the girls, and especially Delilah, to deal with it. The Wayfarer gets torched and an army is marching on the Elven homeland in Otherworld to try and claim the Spirit Seals the girls have given the Queen to protect. The good news is that Iris has given birth to the twins and Sharah's pregnancy is going well but how in the world are they going to deal with all the new crap that is being thrown at them???
There is so much going on in this one but it's well balanced in that nothing gets forgotten for too long even if they aren't actively dealing with it. There is birth and death, wins and losses. It's life and while they are trying to deal with the main baddie, there is stuff springing up all over that doesn't necessarily have to do with him (cause that's the way life usually goes) but the main plot continues to move, well, at least sideways. I absolutely love this books and it kills me that I read them so fast when the new one comes out because I've been missing the world but then I have to wait for months for the next one. It's torture but they are so incredible it's not like I could ever consider doing anything different.
