  2. The world building in the story was top notch The author took her time to set up an interesting world with great detail The writing was very descriptive and the mystery was well woven My issue is that I didn t feel drawn to the characters and it lacked that humanizing eff...

  3. The first thing I did when I finished reading Shadow Blade was make sure that my memory was correct, and that it was the beginning of a series and not a standalone novel Not because I didn t like how it ended, but because I was so impressed with Seressia Glass fully developed and vibrant world rich with ancient Egyptian and Africa history, not to mention the three dimensional characters, zippy narrative, and intriguing plot.I m thrilled to say that Shadow Blade hit all my happy spots All of t The first thing I did when I finished reading Shadow Blade was make sure that my memory was correct, and that it was the beginning of a series and not a standalone novel Not because I didn t like how it ended, but because I was so impressed with Seressia Glass...

  4. I m not used to my urban fantasies being written in third person I realize this is an odd thing to start a review with, but it s the first thing that really stood out for me Shadow Blade is told in third person from two perspectives that of Kira and the Nubian warrior Khefar, and the transitions between them aren t neat or clearly marked, but rather random and messy This is the second time I ve come across something similar lately and I enjoyed it both times, although I m not the biggest fan I m not used to my urban fantasies being written in third person I realize this is an odd thing to start a review with, but it s the first thing that really stood out for me Shadow Blade is told in third person from two perspectives that of Kira and the Nubian warrior Khefar, and the transitions between them aren t neat or clearly marked, but rather random and messy This is the second time I ve come across something similar lately and I enjoyed it both times, although I m not the biggest fan of third person narrative in general For the most part, Kira Solomon was an admirable heroine She was strong, decisive and competent, not very trusting, but with good reason Psychometry is only one of her gifts, but it s the one that marked herthan all the others combined it made her weary of people and thei...

  5. I ve read 3 books fairly closely together this week all of the supposedly action or UF genres This is the first of the 3 that didn t turn out to a romance with elements of some other genre thrown in to suck in unsuspecting readers I put read in quotes as these have all been audio reads it s Christmas season and one can listen to books while doing other things.This book was not bad, I d even put it in the pretty good category If we had the much lamented half star system I d probably go 3 I ve read 3 books fairly closely together this week all of the supposedly action or UF genres This is the first of the 3 that didn t turn out to a romance with elements of some other genre thrown in to suck in unsuspecting readers I put read in quotes as these have all been audio reads it s Christmas season and one can listen to books while doing other things.This book was not bad, I d even put it in the pretty good category If we had the much lamented half star system I d probably go 3.5 stars here It only misses a 4 star rating because FOR ME that s FOR ME it seemed to bog down badly in a few places There were a couple of times when I laid it aside that I wasn t really in a hurry to get back to it There were other books I wanted to start I did however get back to it, mostly I suppose to see how it tied up The ending was fairly predictable but okay We have a bit of action and a bit of magic here while there is a big dollop of rom...

  6. You know what s awesome about this book Kira, the heroine, seems smart enough and knowledgeable enough that I can totally buy into the idea that she s an archaeologist That s sadly rare for me in PNR UF Ms Glass not only presents elements of Kira s expertise in a way that demonstrates that she knows what things mean, not just details in isolation, but she also puts it together in a way that shows how those elements are important within the overall story.That eye for detail is evident in pr You know what s awesome about this book Kira, the heroine, seems smart enough and knowledgeable enough that I can totally buy into the idea that she s an archaeologist That s sadly rare for me in PNR UF Ms Glass not only presents elements of Kira s expertise in a way that demonstrates that she knows what things mean, not just details in isolation, but she also puts it together in a way that shows how those elements are important within the overall story.That eye for detail is evident in pretty much every aspect of this book, from Kira s childhood experiences as a psychometrist in a Normal world to Khefar s interactions with his trickster companion,...

  7. Too many stories about monster hunters are just carbon copies of one another Shadow Blade, however, does a good job of distinguishing itself from others Certain familiar elements are here strong female protagonist, trenchcoats and motorcycles, impossibly sexy immortals and a shadow organization who brings the toys but is never sure if the protagonist is an asset or drawback That said, these pieces that regular additions to the genre are shuffled together with a great deal of original plot, c Too many stories about monster hunters are just carbon copies of one another Shadow Blade, however, does a good job of distinguishing itself from others Certain familiar elem...

  9. 3.5 stars In Shadow Blade, Seressia Glass creates a compelling urban fantasy heroine, Kira Solomon, and kicks off what promises to be a distinctive kick butt series.For me, Shadow Blade got off to a bumpy start There s a lot of telling and exposition as Glass familiarizes the reader with her world and with Kira s backstory We learn that Kira can drain an ordinary human of vitality by touching them, which means she has to keep people at literal arm s length It s a heartbreaking gift to h 3.5 stars In Shadow Blade, Seressia Glass creates a compelling urban fantasy heroine, Kira Solomon, and kicks...
