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.

About Kristen Callihan

Kristen Callihan is a child of the 80’s, which means she's worn neon skirts, black-lace gloves, and combat boots (although never all at once) and can quote John Hughes movies with the best of them. A life long daydreamer, she finally realized that the characters in her head needed a proper home and thus hit the keyboard. She believes that falling in love is one of the headiest experiences a person can have, so naturally she writes romance. Her love of superheroes, action movies, and history led her to write historical paranormals. She lives in the Washington D.C. area and, when not writing, looks after two children, one husband, and a dog — the fish can fend for themselves.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

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!
