Fianna has fled from her home because her
stepfather wants to make her marry Angus, a man she canít
stand. On her way to freedom, she has a run in with a thief
who makes off with her dress, shoes, and all her jewels and
gold. Penniless and half naked, she continues her journey
rather than return home and be forced into marriage.
Moytura, Fianna finds a job and changes her name to Angharad
blend into the crowd, she doesnít expect to find herself with
so many suitors.
Gaderian canít stand each other, and with good reason. Not
only do they both want the same woman, but they both want to
see the otherís race dead. Vampires and Demons donít get
along, and donít ever plan to.
Shadows is a story that will keep you guessing along
with Fianna. There isnít any headhopping, but there are so
many different points of view in the story that I found myself
wanting to skip ahead to Fianna and Gaderianís points of view
as they were the only characters I cared for. Bits of the
story seemed to drag for me. This definitely isnít a fast
read, but for fantasy fans that like to be kept on edge
wondering what will happen next you may enjoy this.
