A briliant read Romance intrigue magic ploting not totally evil ursurpers and did I mention a hot demon with uite a few murderous intentions? It held me captive till the last page and I just hope the next one will come out soon It's not a fluffy tale and it has switching POV's so you get to know the intentions of the main character's also of the ursurperous bastardIt's my first book by this author's but I hope there will be from them Most awesome book I have read in a long time I stayed up way too late last night reading this and could not put it down the entire time The intrigues are awesome the magic is awesome the characters are fantastic and I love love love the villain I would give six stars if that were at all possible 3 Stars An enjoyable story and a satisfactory ending but there are enough loose threads to knit a sweater and since it was released in 2007 I don't expect we'll ever find out what happens to the villain This was a story that could have been written in a 500 page book Unfortunately or maybe fortunately this book is much shorter than that It had potential to be than just not bad but somehow it was wasted Maybe because it is simply too short? The whole story happens in like 3 days? Everything happened too fast to my liking especially the romance; it reeks of insta lovelust Also the world building feels like a rough sketch instead of a solid picture I liked the banshee cursegift the royal family history magic and witch's sacrifice concepts and well the characters also weren't bad We actually get a villain here who's not exactly evil The story would be lovely if it was developed But it is not so 3 stars it gets I feel bad for only rating it three stars I really liked the book However at times it felt rushed and I felt detached from the story though I can't pinpoint why Very goooood Shadow Hunt is a good fantasy novel with original ideas nice characters and a good plot It's well written and easy and uick to read I really liked reading it but it was too short for my taste I like fantasy novels that take the time to really create a dense deep background that allows you to really see and feel and imagine the world you dive into I want to thoroughly understand the structure of the world to get a sense even of those regions and places and people that are not actively involved in the novel Don't get me wrong the world building in this novel was not faulty per se it was coherent and made sense but I saw too little and got too few information to really get an idea how the world works and how it looks like Since I loved the premise of the story otherwise I think as a 400 to 500 pages story with the gained space and time used to really fill in all the gaps this book might have made my favourite list As it is it's still a really good read just not fulfilling its whole potential I thinkThe blurb of the story doesn't tell a lot so I'd recommend reading Elisa Ramblings review it gives a nice short summary of what's going on in the book
