SHADOWDANCE is brilliantly written. Incredible pacing, elegant writing and perfect timing with those twists and gut-wrenching turns make this book a wild ride! ~ Under the Covers
The Darkest London series by Kristen Callihan has quickly become one of my favorites. There’s something to be said about Callihan’s imagination. There are no boundaries with her, no feat to difficult to accomplish. With larger than life characters, Callihan breathes passion and life into each individual, making it so easy for readers to fall in love with them.
Jack Talent has had a difficult past. But his blood is the most sought after thing in London at the moment. With a murderer on the loose, he is paired up with Mary Chase, his one-time savior and is reminded of all that was bad that happened to him. As he fights those memories – and his attraction to the feisty GIM- Chase and Talent find a camaraderie of sorts and this is probably more frightening to Talent than the mechanical men and the various demons lurking the night.
There is no other way to say this so I will tell it straight – SHADOWDANCE is brilliantly written. Incredible pacing, elegant writing and perfect timing with those twists and gut-wrenching turns make this book a wild ride that was so fun to experience. It takes true talent in a writer to be able to accomplish this time and time again, and Callihan manages to hit it right every single time.
For fans of the Infernal Devices or Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk series, trust me when I say this is a series you need to read. Even if you’re tired of Historical or Paranormals, Callihan’s series is a refreshingly vibrant gem in a well-loved genre.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
