Shadow didnít like the ways of her
people. They would trick others, steal, and basically cause
havoc. She may be a fairy, but she had integrity. She also
cared deeply for her friend Lon. He had started as simply
being her boss, but after the death of his wife, she had
helped with his twins, and now he was her best friend.
Lon James could have blamed Shadow for
the death of his wife, as many others would, but he knew
that she shared the same feelings of loss that he did. She
may be a fairy, but his own wife had basically told him to
judge Shadow on her own merit. Now as the years had passed,
he realized that although he would always be part of a world
that may be elite, it would be a world that would be empty
without Shadow being with him.
I have mixed feelings for Love in
Shadow. I feel Sonja Foust created a fascinating
world where the fairies and humans intermixed. The
characters were well-developed, there was realistic
conflict, and I enjoyed the romance between Shadow and Lon.
At the same time, it felt as though I was in the middle of a
story, and it took some reading to understand the setting
