Shadows Claim

I would like to begin by saying Kresley Cole is one of my favourite writers. I only discovered her last year and since doing so I have read everything I could find that she has written. She is a master at creating a scene, which you can easily lose yourself in. She also creates the ultimate alpha male and feisty but feminine heroin. The full cast of characters in the IAD series is nothing short of amazing, they are colourful, witty, charming, sexy and deadly, all at the same time.

It pains me therefore to say that I was disappointed in Shadow’s Claim, the first of her novels about the Dacians. After reading Lothair, which was brilliant, I thought this would be every bit as exciting, unfortunately I felt a little let down. Whilst reading the opening paragraph, where Bettina is being beaten by the Vrekeners, I thought, here we go, another Cole masterpiece but the storey never really lifted off from there, I felt the plot itself was weak. I didn’t feel the usual punchy excitement as the storey was revealed and I didn’t feel the underlying attraction between the lead characters, Trehan and Bettina, which is always present in her books. To be honest, I felt as if this book had been written in a hurry. Sorry Kresley, if it helps, everything else has been brilliant, thrilling, amazing!

I would like to add that Robert Petkoff is the perfect narrator for these books, his range of voices and ability to punctuate a storey using his voice is excellent, well chosen!

Okay, so usually I don't listen to books of this type. I usually listen to horror and science fiction, with a little fantasy and non-fiction. I usually scoff at books of this nature. In fact, it was an accident that I even downloaded this book. What has happened to me? I was taken in from the beginning...and couldn't stop. And I couldn't believe the me feel. I want my husband to listen to it.

And oh yeah, I could probably listen to Robert Petkoff read a dictionary...if he read the way he read this book. :-)

Paranormal Romance at it's finest! KC is the best

This is why Kresley Cole is the queen of PNR! She delivered yet another amazing story that complements the IAD world she so brilliantly created! I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book! After reading Lothaire, I couldn't wait to read about the Dacians. The tournament Trehan enters to win Bettina reminded me of the Talisman's Hie from No Rest for the Wicked. It was so full of action and excitement. I also enjoyed the cameos from other IAD characters which just made this book feel like an old friend.

This is a MUST read for fans of PNR and Kresly Cole.

5 stars all around and definitely credit worthy!!
