Reviews of Shadow Blade
"Glass' latest seizes the reader's attention and holds it captive.
The author cunningly and masterfully injects details about gods who
supervise and/or orchestrate what happens in the lives of humans,
immortals and beings in between. The suspense is almost overwhelming,
the intense action palpable. Glass creates a story you'll want to keep
reading, even when there are no more pages."--RT Book Reviews
"The heart-pounding first in Glass's
Shadowchasers urban fantasy series piles on the
twists and turns in a supernatural Atlanta... Kira's personal battle against
the forces of chaos will keep readers riveted."--Publishers Weekly
"Filled with great spins, the first Shadowchasers urban fantasy is a terrific
tale due to the heroine. Her current case is personal in several ways, but
also could lead her into the Shadows of darkness.
Atlanta proves a great landscape for a battle between shadow and
shadow-hunters, but it is the teaming of Kira and Khefar as she learns
there are plenty of shades of gray between light and dark." --
"FIVE STARS! I found this story to be not only extremely creative, but
It sinks its hooks into your imagination and takes you on one of the wildest
rides of the year.
There is so much going on that I simply cannot put it into a short synopsis. All
I can say is, "WOW!"--Huntress
"Seressia Glass turns her considerable talents to urban fantasy with this
compulsively readable tale.
The use of an Egyptian pantheon--Kira is a follower of Ma'at, Khefar a follower
of Isis--gives the story
a firm foundation, and the plot, with danger and darkness, but also a hint of
romance, should surely satisfy.
Bring on more of these characters."--
Affaire de Coeur
"Kira's personal history and the burdening effects of her gift were fascinating.
Everything she touches effects her. Even food that she doesn't harvest herself
can make her physically ill because of all the people who have touched it. Also
the inclusion of the Egyptian pantheon of gods was a fresh and unique source of
magic in the urban fantasy genre. The concept of Light and Chaos, and the
Universe's need for balance made for an interesting world to play in....Overall,
the concept and unique world building are the clear strengths of this novel." --All Things Urban Fantasy:
"With Shadow Blade, Seressia Glass, a Romantic Times Reviewer's
Choice Award winner, has written an urban fantasy tale with all the elements
that I like in a good story: magic, deception, redemption, romance and victory
-- a solid formula for a very entertaining read. I'm certainly looking forward
to the next installment in the adventures of Kira and Khefar."--
