    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 fully developed and vibrant world rich with ancient Egyptian and Africa history, not to mention the three dimensional characters, zippy narrative,...

    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 Shad...

    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...

    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 monst...

    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 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...
