The fifth book in the Shadowfae Chronicles is a story full of emotional angst, action, betrayals, vengeance, and romance.
Tam is a zombie that wants revenge on the people that murdered him and his family. Jewel is a djinni that just wants to keep her newfound freedom. All their plans go out the window when the two meet. The chemistry between the two is strong, but Tam doesn’t want to give in. He has secrets that Jewel’s not going to like. Tam and his friend are being used against each other by two demons competing over territory and the demon that comes out on top gets Jewel.
The plot of the story is a good one, with lots of interesting characters and an engaging world. Unfortunately for me, this book didn’t work out for me. The author has a great imagination and she describes her world and her characters very vividly, which is a good thing. She makes a disclaimer at the beginning that if you are grossed out about getting up close and personal with corpses, this may not be the book for you. I would have been fine with it, but to me she repeatedly over described Tam’s condition. Also, the way the dialogue see-sawed between the characters seemed like I was flipping through other peoples diaries and reading journal entries. That is not to say that another reader won’t like the book. The author has created a unique paranormal world with great characters.
I was provided this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
