    4.5 Stars.

    I will say that I’m sorry that I took so long to read this book.  It had the perfect blend of romance (though it took long for them to finally get together), action and storyline.

    Grace Mercer is a woman with an incomplete past.  Her parents were killed when she was young and then she was unwillingly embroiled into the paranormal world.  She is now a woman with a mission; complete her contract as a blood slave and move the heck on.

    Leif Asgard never wanted to be a ruler.  He is a scientist and loner.  After the death of his brother, he was put into a role he never wanted and responsibilities he never desired.  That was until he felt the pull of certain blood slave bond.  Now he has a purpose and her name is Grace.

    Confusing attraction, a world sent back to the Stone Age, backstabbing dealings and a demigod on a mission will have you on the edge of your seat.  Grace and Leif have a landscape of landmines to transverse and enemies to watch.  It is a time when you have to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  Can Grace and Leif handle everything thrown at them and get past their own barriers to heal each other’s souls?

    The first story in the trilogy Hearts of Darkness was a mixed bag for me.  I really loved the story telling, but I found inconsistencies that took me out of the story.  It still was a great book to read.  Hearts of Shadows was a home run for me.  I really do wish that I would have read it sooner.  I loved Grace and Leif and together, they were brilliant.  

    Ms. Brady has built an amazing world and wonderful characters.  I truly believe that lovers of romance, paranormal and urban fantasy will equally enjoy Hearts of Shadow.  It’s a breath of fresh air to the paranormal genre with its unique plot and amazing story telling.  The story isn’t a standalone though.  If you jumped right in on it, you wouldn’t be totally lost, but there are several references to the prior book and trust me you will want to know how “the event” occurred.  In fact, the trilogy is now actually complete and you can get all three of them into your hot little hands as we speak.  I’m going to start right away on the final book, Hearts of Chaos, but there were two characters that were mentioned in this book that have a prequel short story, Hearts of Fire, that I may have to read first. 

    Great job Ms. Brady!  It is unbelievable that this is only her second book.  WOW she is going to have an amazing career if she keeps this up.  She writes fantastic worlds and knows how to capture a reader.  Read the Deadglass Trilogy today!
