Verdict Edwards delivers in her new novella from the “Araneae Nation” series (after A Hint of Frost and A Feast of Souls). She embraces the short story format and deftly manages to pack a handful of intriguing characters, including a few of the four-legged variety, two battles, and a love story into just over 100 pages. The writing is lush and allows the reader to become immersed in the new world immediately. A Cast of Shadows will likely send readers searching for more from this series and its author.Kellie Tilton, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks Lib.
