Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty Overall Shadows of Fate has all the elements of a great read Dennis definitely shows promise and her Shadow Born series could become a strong new series for other readers of Urban FantasyOpening Sentence Rotting wood crunched under Brenna’s weight as she stepped into the shadows beside the deserted storefrontThe ReviewAn indeterminate amount of time has passed since The Fall the human war that forced survivors underground and ripped opened the Veil between worlds Vampires demons and other countless creatures flooded the Earthly plane fighting to control the last disjointed pockets of life and literally placing humankind at the bottom of the food chain Now only the Interspecies Relations Taskforce IRT stands between these factions and the extinction of humankindBanished from her own homeworld and forced through the Veil Brenna Baudouin’s Shadow Bearer magic is one the most powerful weapons the IRT has in the fight to maintain order She’s smart beautiful and utterly deadly She’s also been the only one of her kind on Earth for close to a century So it’s understandable that she’d have some conflicting emotions after walking into her office and finding Gray Warlow at her desk Though she suspects Gray has been sent to Denver to kill her on her father’s orders she can’t help being drawn to the attractive male Shadow Bearer with strangely familiar eyes and dangerous secrets Things between the two of them become even complicated when Brenna is linked to a string of gruesome murders As their investigation uncovers the truth behind the plot to frame Brenna they discover that they have no choice but to combine their powers to stop a killer from her pastNormally I have a pretty good sense of how I’m going to rate a book as soon as I get to the blank page or screen at the end Not so with Shadows of Fate the first book in the Shadow Born series I’ve flip flopped between 3 and 4 Skulls for a couple of days trying to decide how to write the review when I have such a torn responseDennis created an interesting post apocalyptic world and I especially enjoyed her mythology The idea that paranormal creatures aren’t from Earth that they live in parallel dimensions distinct from each other is one of the most uniue explanations I’ve read for their origins This concept provided an explanation for why things were happening and demonstrated the need for the IRTIt’s difficult for even the most experience writer to create an in depth urban fantasy without overwhelming the reader though Dennis walked a thin line between giving too much information and keeping me interested There were definitely times when I felt like Shadows of Fate veered into a science fiction story There were also times when things just didn’t add up Why didn’t the Guardians immensely powerful beings with the ability to prevent anyone from traveling through the Veil stop the influx of creatures into the Earthly realm in the beginning If Brenna could banish demons back to their own realms why couldn’t she do the same with other creatures fighting for power If vampires and the like are from another plane of existence where do human ghosts come fromProbably the biggest issue though was the relationship between Brenna and Gray Whether done intentionally or not Brenna weakened as the story progressed It almost felt like she immediately fell into the “damsel in distress” role as soon as Gray arrived She had every right to demand the murderer be dealt with on Earth especially considering her past Yet she barely showed any anger or doubt when Gray basically bullied her into doings things his way Her seemingly easy acceptance of Gray’s secret was another big sticking point for me Dennis created an excellent sense of anticipation for the Big Reveal building the sexual tension and emotional struggles between Brenna and Gray until that moment Yet the story fell flat right when it should’ve exploded and the conclusion left me feeling slightly cheatedThere were several things I truly enjoyed about the story Dennis’ world building was original and her explanation of the existence of paranormal creatures was uniue Unfortunately there were also a lot of things I didn’t like The lower rating is ultimately due to the fact that the characters and story seemed to run out of steam long before the weak ending I have a mild interest in the unanswered uestions this story raised but probably won’t continue with the seriesNotable Scene“Gray” He took her hand It was too cold making him wonder how long it had been since she had fed “Are you going to try to kill me again or are we good”Mira shrugged “Can’t make any promises about tomorrow but I’m not an idiot I’m no match for you Sam may be but you’re strong enough for our purposes”“And those are”“Protection You never know when a demon is going to attack especially lately We have only one another and we have no use for anyone who is not powerful enough to keep up” Sam settled into a wide legged stance next to Mira “The war may be over for the humans but it’s not for us”“I know” Gray took a deep breath “I just moved here but I thought this was a safe haven”Mira snorted “If you want safety move east You won’t find it here”FTC Advisory Samhain Publishing provided me with a copy of Shadows of Fate No goody bags sponsorships “material connections” or bribes were exchanged for my review

To read this review and others like it check out my site wwwhomelovebookscomSo the biggest problem I had when it came time to review this book was trying to decide if I liked it or I loved it which is always a good sign This was easily one of those books that I want to sit in one place for a few hours have no one disturb me and just submerge myself into the world and the characters and escape for a while I genuinely enjoyed the book from beginning to endA couple of things stood out to me as I read the book The first thing was at the very beginning it starts with Brenna's point of view and then she meets Gray I knew I was going to like Gray not sure how I knew but I knew I would As the writing progressed I remember thinking in my head I really hope Angela includes Gray's point of view too it would make the book so much better Three pages later bam there was Gray's point of view I think the story could have been told in only one POV but having both just made it so much better gave everyone so much depth and well made me happyBrenna as a character just works for me She's got a tough exterior but on the inside she's a bit on the tortured side She's strong but loyal She has a great moral compass There were several times throughout the book where she could have taken the easy route of self gratification and just gone for the easy vengeance but instead she does the right thing the right thing for her the right thing for justice I wish I could explain but I am so not going to ruin it for future readers Brenna has a serious job basically policing the world from things that go bump in the night there's some great backstory here about the Fall and the Rise But the thing about her job is that really it's all she has left The people she works with are the only people she has left really So when something starts really threatening the people she cares for Brenna has no choice but to put herself out in front of everyone to do her best to protect themAs for Gray well I like him too Again not sure what it was that won me over but I like him He shows up as kind of a mystery for Brenna and he seems to be out for revenge except he's playing the long game definitely not in it for instant gratification Only as the story goes on and you learn and about him the he realizes he doesn't know as much as he thought Like Breena he is loyal to those he cares about is a tough guy but what I really like about him is he doesn't try to be in charge of Brenna and than that when she uses her magic for something he can't do he is literally in awe of her He respects her for who she is and I like that I hate when a man just overpowers a woman so their dynamic really worked for meI like the backstory I like how the Veil has been torn and now people from different worlds are all in one place together causing problems and learning to co exist The big bad in this book wasn't too surprising but was written well I liked that the fight scenes or actions scenes were easy to follow I really liked the true mix of people and races of people that were in this book I hope in the next book we get to see of Brenna and Gray's home world and perhaps learn about their respective histories and families But as a first book in a series I can honestly say this is one I enjoyed without a doubtIn the end I am going to give this book a Loved It review because it really was such a good read I think I could easily recommend this book to anyone who likes urban fantasy and the is even a little something in their for the folks that like paranormal romance as well Can't wait to read the next book although I have a feeling I will have to wait until next year
