Hearts of Shadow Review

Hearts of Shadow

In this brilliant new novel in the Deadglass series, a fierce young woman’s quest entangles her in an apocalyptic endgame—and unexpected desire…

Grace Mercer’s unmatched wraith-killing ability made her the unofficial defender of a city shattered by supernatural catastrophe. So there’s no way she’ll allow the new regent of Seattle’s most powerful dragon shifter clan to “protect” her from a vicious evil stalking the ruined streets—and keep her from the freedom she’s risked everything to earn. 

Leif’s science-honed instincts tell him Grace is the key to keeping shifters and humans safe. But helping this wary fighter channel her untapped power is burning away the dragon’s sensual self-control and putting a crucial alliance at risk. Soon the only chance Leif and Grace will have to save their world will be a dangerously fragile link that could forever unite their souls…or consume all in a storm of destruction.

What I Loved
I love it when books are right in my backyard. In Hearts of Shadow it literally is practically in my backyard. Grace takes a trip to Ravensdale along Maple Valley Highway, which I grew up going to Ravensdale to play soccer and grew up in Maple Valley. Love it! But this magical torn Seattle which all sorts of magical creatures is so exciting and intriguing.  
Grace Mercer: I love female characters that are small and tough. Grace is one kick ass female character that I completely adore and admire. In the first book Hearts of Darkness we briefly got to meet her and I'm so glad she got to have her own book. Grace isn't the swooning type of gal, even when a hunk of a dragon keeps tempting her.
Leif Asgard: Unlike his asshole of a brother, Leif is a dragon to lust after. He actually has morals and is more into science than world domination. I adore Leif's character and I think Grace and him made for some very interesting tension and chemistry.
Paranormal Romance
Perfect amount of sexual tension, romance and bedroom scenes paired with a fantastic amount of story. I love paranormal romance books. The different creatures, the parallel universe, the story and the characters all make for an exciting combination that I can never seem to put down. 

Didn't Like
Nothing. . . I now have to wait for the next book!

A must read series for readers who love paranormal romance, action, and Seattle.
