    Shadow's Curse by Alexa Egan: Callista Hawthorne is a necromance

    Shadow's Curse by Alexa Egan: Callista Hawthorne is a necromancer, gifted by the Fey blood running through her maternal side. She’s under the thumb of her brother, Branston, who uses her abilities for his own financial gain. He has also promised her virtue to a man, Mr. Corey, whose dark nature longs to consume Callista and her abilities for his own. David St. Leger is an Imnada exile, suffering from a terrible curse and its deadly palliative. He is captured by Mr. Corey’s men, a prisoner just as much as Callista. David knows she’s part-Fey, one of the Others – the Imnada’s ancient enemies. Yet right now they need each other to escape Mr. Corey and stay safe, but soon they may want each other, too…

    I enjoyed ‘Shadow’s Curse’, the second book of the Imnada Brotherhood. I was intrigued by the unique aspects of Callista’s necromantic abilities and the traveling carnival David and Callista used for cover. I like how Ms. Egan’s shifters are different from the typical shifter. I didn’t feel very connected to Callista and David, but I enjoyed their adventure and romance very much. I’m looking forward to the next books in this series just to see how all the pieces and couples fit together to save the cursed Imnada. Fascinating settings, interesting characters, and a ton of exciting action, ‘Shadow’s Curse’ will have lovers of this series on the edge of their seats!

    The second book in the Imnada Brotherhood series is full adventu

    The second book in the Imnada Brotherhood series is full adventure, action, intrigue, romance and the Fae.
    During Callista’s attempt to escape her cruel brother and the man he’s sold her to, she meets David, one of the Imnada who has been cursed.  David fights his attraction to Callista throughout their journey, for what he believes is good reason.
    The suspense builds throughout the book as the couple is pursued by two sets of enemies, both with very nefarious intentions.  The author has built a world that engages the reader in tangled webs of greed, supernatural racism, magic and deception.
    The historical time period of the book is vividly described by the author without her over describing it. The characters are strong and believable with all the emotional angst that characters should have in their position.  And she created a great conclusion to the Callista and David’s story.
    The only drawback to this book that I found was that at times the story seemed to move a little too slow and jumped from one scene to the next a little abruptly. But not so much that I won’t still be looking forward to the next book.
    I was provided an ARC of this book by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
