I finished reading Shadowglass, the next book in the Shadowfae Chronicles. I was not disappointed. I like that in a sequel. 😉
I’ll tell you what else I like, and that’s Kane. I was oddly relieved to spend more time with him in this book. I hope he gets his own one day.
But enough about my demon crush, let’s get back to the book at hand.
Shadowglass continues the lush prose I’ve come to expect from this author, and immerses the reader in a world full of dazzling sights and tastes. Intricate details capture the otherworldliness of our world seen through fairy eyes. I would roll around the words on the page if I could. So many books blur into sameness, but there’s none of that here. This series is the cure for the common urban fantasy novel.
Another Shadowglass delight was the hero, Indigo. He kept me guessing well into the middle of the book. I planned to re-read after learning his clever trick, but made the mistake of starting Poison Kissed instead. Now I can’t put it down. What can I say? Reading Erica Hayes is an addictive experience.
A seductive magic mirror lies hidden deep in a demon’s lair, with a simple warning: don’t stare at the glass…
Ice is a troubled fairy trying her best to survive in the squalid underworld of the Shadowfae. When she spends a hot night with a demon lord, she discovers a powerful magic mirror in his lair — and pilfers it, knowing it’s the key to escaping her bleak life as a two-bit con artist. But Ice soon discovers that the mirror’s power comes with a price…madness, which is slowly overtaking her.
Indigo oozes darkness, danger and tempting sensuality. He’s been sent to destroy Ice and bring the mirror back to its rightful owner; a mission that, if he fails, will cost him his life. But when he meets Ice, he faces an even greater challenge: an insatiable sexual hunger that neither of them can deny, and dark passions that threaten to claim them both forever. The trouble is, the longer he stays within the mirror’s reach, the greater its hold on his sanity—and the stronger his determination to save Ice…
