In the Shadows of Salem, there are no good guys…
For years, Detective Brooke Chandler has been deliberately shielded from the supernatural world. But now that the supernaturals know about her, there’s no line they won’t cross to harness her powers for their own wicked needs.
To stay alive, Brooke needs to learn what it means to be a Shadow. Unfortunately, the one person willing to help her may be just as guilty of using her unique skills for his own gain as the people she is trying to escape.
Her training comes at a price: helping a fae lord find several dangerous artifacts and shadowing them from his enemies. But the more she uses her abilities, the deeper she becomes embroiled in the cutthroat societies closing in on her. Soon, Brooke finds herself hemmed into a corner, condemned to make an impossible choice that might destroy the human world as she knows it.
Find out what happens next in SHADOW MARKED, the second novel in the hit new urban fantasy series readers are comparing to early Anita Blake and the Fever Series.
***I would like to thank Rebecca Hamilton for providing me with “Shadow Marked” for free, for my honest review***
I felt that throughout the story that Brooke was given the short end of the deal at every turn. By the end of the book I was thinking fae and witches were no better than the no good Tom. But I did learn something towards the end of the book that help me understand a certain faerie lord better. But I bet most won’t catch it. *grins wickedly* I am not telling you what it is you will need to read it to find out.
Yes it is like Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series. We have a kick butt woman that everyone wants a piece of her or to use her for their gain. Plus there’s this guy offering to help her. However, not being forthcoming until she gets pushed too far and demands answers. Jasmine and Rebecca weave their tale with a picturesque clarity that I truly enjoy. I love how I am transported into their world and don’t want to leave. The ending is a cliff hanger and I need more now! But I will wait as best as I can…
