WAKING THE SHADOWS
Rating: 3 Cups
Arielle is a preternatural investigator for the FBI, aka demon slayer. She and her partner, the vampire Jackson, spend their time searching out and eliminating evil. She is attracted to Jackson, but you should never get too personally involved with your partner.
Jackson is a vampire from another world. Since he is unable to go home, he spends his time working for the FBI, and with Arielle, searching out and destroying evil. Working with her is great, but just not enough.
In two separate stories, Arielle and Jackson face the ghosts of Jackson’s past. In Seeking the Shadows, a demon from Jackson’s world seeks to open a portal into this world using death magic, specifically Arielle’s death. In Waking the Dreamer, Jackson and Arielle are threatened by Jackson’s former master, a centuries old mage.
I enjoyed these two stories. They are quick reads with enough background so that you can understand the story without being bogged down in it. Arielle and Jackson are appealing characters with a great deal of chemistry and the villains are satisfyingly evil.
