Bitten by Books - x x
"Shadow Fall by Erin Kellison is the second book in her dark and sexy Shadow series about a world of shadow and blood, magic and love. Custo and Annabella are an unlikely pair – a fallen angel and a ballerina – but the tension between them steamed up my computer screen."

    This is a fascinating urban romantic fantasy

    While trying to save the life of his best friend, Custo Santovari was murdered by traitorous Spencer, an apparent wraith supporter. The Shadowman brings Custo to heaven where his courage and willingness to die for his buddy makes him an angel. However, Custo's goal is to get back to America to warn his BFF Adam Thorne; besides he rationalizes he is too much a sinner to be an angel.

    In Manhattan Annabella the ballerina magically dances causing a rift between realms. Custo returns to earth, but also making it through is Wolf the shadow hunter. Custo knows his mission is to go to the New York Segue Institute safe house to warn Adam and to keep safe Annabella from a nightmare; but nothing goes right as Adam thinks he must be a wraith and he falls in forbidden love with the :angel" he protects.

    This is a fascinating urban romantic fantasy starring an obsessed lead male fleeing heaven on a quest and the woman who enables him to escape from the angels. The story line is fast-paced, as the city comes across grim and foreboding. Readers learn a little more about the wraiths since the events of Shadows Bound (Adam's romance), but Shadowman remains enigmatic. Sub-genre fans will relish the second wraith war thriller as the shadows continue to darken the earth.

    Fairy Tale Urban Fantasy

    The story begins with Custo in heaven. He's somehow ended up as an angel, much to his displeasure. Wanting to help and warn Adam of a betrayl, Custo tricks Shadowman into switching places with him. Lost and trying to find his way back to Segue, Custo sees a woman dancing and is drawn to her power, just as the wolf is. Wolf has been hunting Annabelle trying to find a way out of Shadow and into her world. When Custo accidentally lets him into the real world, both his and Annabelle's worlds are upturned.
    My favorite thing about this series is Ms. Kellison's characters. She doesn't write her characters in terms of good or bad. Each character has good and bad qualities. Custo is my favorite example of this. He's not good. And he knows it. At the same time, he's not evil. Every choice he makes is based off what he can gain. This is true of every character in literature, except that Custo is very selfish. The only times he is not selfish is with Adam and Annabelle. There are so many layers to Custo's character-I love it!
    Annabelle was also different from most heroines. She's a principle ballerina in her company. Having sacrificed so much and worked so hard, she starts to reap the rewards. However, after Wolf notices her hidden power when she dances, he becomes obsessed. Cue Custo. After he saves Annabelle, she is forced to accept protection from both Custo and the Segue Institute. Throughout the book, Annabelle is torn between her love of dance and her love for Custo. Her journey to find the balance between the two was interesting to read.
    I really liked this book, even more than Shadow Bound. I adored Custo and all of his complexities. Wolf is a creepy, perverse, and terrifying villain-which made this book all the more absorbing. This book is very well written, engaging, and so worth reading!

    A Captivating love story. A must read...

    This author has written a story that captures you with the first page. This is a love story that will capture you from the first. I could not put it down until I finished to see how it would end. You must read the entire series! You will fall in love with "shadows".

    It's been a long time since I read the first book in this serie

    It's been a long time since I read the first book in this series, so I was a little concerned that I might not remember the details. Interestingly enough, I don't think that really mattered since most of this book takes place in a slightly different time frame.

    I honestly didn't remember Custo from the first book. But, his death was horrible. We're spared the graphic details, but you sure can imagine it. I loved the he would not accept that he made it to heaven. He was convinced there had been a mistake. He was also determined to get back to earth to warn his friends that he was willing to trick death. I also enjoyed his journey back to earth.

    But, really that is such a small part of the story. When he gets back to earth, he has to prove who he is, get caught up on current events (turns out he was gone quite a bit longer than he though), plus protect a women who completely enchants him. The world is on the brink of disaster, and he might be doing this on borrowed time.

    I also really enjoyed Annabella. I liked how ballet played a role in this whole story. Her dedication and the heart she puts into her performances opens up a gate between realms. Its what attracted the wolf to her and helped Custo cross. But, this bridge between realms is not the only problem they are facing.

    I really have enjoyed both books in the series. I need to get a hold of the next one sooner rather than later so I don't forget the details!

    Dark and Seductive

    I'm not sure if I liked Adam and Tailia's story or Custo and Annabella's story more. I do love the descriptions of the shadow world and I see that the way the story ended that Custo and Annabella's story is just starting, both as a couple and as individuals. Custo has new power that remains to be seen what he will do and with The Order joining the fight with Segue, it brings a new arch to the story.
    Just like the first story, Erin Kellison paints a rich world that just draws you in. I really enjoyed the peeks into the shadow world and although there are not many of them, the ones that you do get are enticing. All in all, a great second book.
