Reviews of Shadow Fall
"Those who have invested in this series will be glad to know that Kira finally
has solid information about her mysterious mother and her relation to Balm. The
relationship between Kira and Khefar is satisfying to read. The powerful (and
studly) Khefar believes in Kira and is her touchstone. However, I did have one
big problem with this story. Kira has asked Balm over and over about her mother
and Balm had denied her. When Balm finally gives her the big clue, what does she
do? She waits! She doesn't open the chest immediately. It is not until page 141
that she finally gets the nerve to open it! Kira received the chest very early
in the story and I was really frustrated with Kira for waiting so long....
Except that section, this was a thrilling and exciting read as Kira must battle
unbelievable powers to claim her birthright." (4/5 stars)--
"The third Shadow Chasers urban fantasy is a strong entry that series fans will
fully relish as more of the Egyptian mythos comes to the light. Loaded with
action throughout, Shadow Fall is an intriguing story line as Balm adjusts her
dreams for her daughter to the reality of who Kira is... Seressia Glass writes a fresh tale."--
Reviews of Shadow Chase (Book Two)
"This book outdoes the first in more ways than I really could have imagined.
Honestly, I didn't think it would be better than the first book and was
looking for a huge fail...
Key points: It moved so much faster than the first book.
There's more drama in this book.
The action is tons better in this book. LOVED IT!
This book just never left me feeling empty or bored. It was a page turner that I
finished in a day and a half and am SO GLAD I read this.
Yikes it was great. So for those of you who weren't into the first book,
please make sure you get this one, it's great." (5 Stars)"--Urban Paranormal Blog
"The author pulls you in from the very first page, you can always picture being
in the setting. The main character and the sidekicks are easily imaginable. I
liked how the author wrote in 3rd person so she could tell the reader feelings
of other characters. The author never left you hanging and wrote a good
conclusion that ends this book but leaves room for another book. The writing was
powerful and the vocabulary was appropriate. This book reminds me of the Red
Pyramid, the Mortal Instruments series, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians
series. My overall view of the book was that it was entertaining. I learned
about Egyptian mythology, mostly about the gods. I would recommend this book to
people because it is very well written and is full of adventure. 8/10"
"I appreciate that Kira is still growing and learning and figuring things out.
And I like that she's learning to trust more people.
Kira learns a good bit about her history during the course of Shadow Chase, but
there is still an important piece of information missing,
and I have a feeling that will be pretty important in future books. As for the
story elements: plot is once again exceptional,
and there are mutliple plots going on, the longer term series arcs as well as
the plots that get nicely tied up within
this one book...
The prose and dialogue were well done, and character development is very well
done. The world building in this series is incredible.
I'm going to give Shadow Chase a 9 of 10, knocking off a point for pacing. The
series will get a 10 of 10, though, as this is a kick-ass series.

...a great deal of fun. We travel with Kira, Khefar, and friends to London,
Cairo, Aswan, and an eerie alternate dimension,
and Seressia Glass puts them through the physical and emotional wringer several
times. In terms of the adventure aspect, the Egypt sections could have
used a little more description to help if'transportif' the reader there, but
nonetheless the story is enjoyable. We also get plenty of development on the

Reviews of Shadow Blade (Book One)
"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."--
