I believe the synopsis for this book is misleading. Prior to my download of this book, I was under the impression that this was going to be a dark urban fantasy. This book turned out to have more than just a flair of romance. Even though this series had more romance than I was expecting, it was still a was a good entry into a new romantic urban fantasy. I have to admit I hated the sun-mage. He seemed like a manic-depressive. One minute he's into the heroine and the next he's spouting horrible insults and sulking. Most of the times I wish he would harness the power of the sun to set himself on fire. Besides the fickle sun-mage, this book was really good. It's not exactly what I thought it was going to be, however it was still interesting. I was expecting the "Shadow" to be harder and more ruthless than she was. Don't get me wrong, she was a fierce killer, however she did have a soft side that I wasn't expecting to see as often as we did. I recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and look forward to reading the next book Blood Kin due out 6/5/2012. I also recommend a book that B&N does not carry: Shea MacLeod Kissed by Darkness

I really enjoyed Lily, but the male protagonist (I regret that I have forgotten his name), seemed to change his personality a bit in the book. In the beginning, he was very much into Lily, but then became quite resisting towards her in the middle of the book. Still, it was very enjoyable.
