{Review} A Sliver of Shadow Book 2 Abby Sinclair Series By Allison Pang

A Sliver of Shadow
Book 2 Abby Sinclair Series
By Allison Pang
Publisher: Pocket Star
Released:  February 28th 2012
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Urban Fantasy, paranormal

Just when her new life as a TouchStone – a mortal bound to help OtherFolk cross between Faery and human worlds – seems to be settling down, Abby Sinclair is left in charge when the Protectorate, Moira, leaves for the Faery Court. And when the Protectorate’s away…let’s just say things spiral out of control when a spell on Abby backfires and the Faery Queen declares the Doors between their worlds officially closed.

The results are disastrous for both sides: OtherFolk trapped in the mortal world are beginning to fade, while Faerie is on the brink of war with the daemons of Hell. Along with her brooding eleven prince Talivar and sexy incubus Brystion, Abby ventures to the CrossRoads in an attempt to override the Queen’s magic. But nothing in this beautiful, dangerous realm will compare to the discoveries she’s making about her past, her destiny, and what she will sacrifice for those she loves.

Review: Once again Ms Pang draws me into her world if mythical creatures. I was carried away with Abby and her friends as they work to do what they have to. The twists and turns in the plot kept me reading wanting to know what would happen. I didn't feel that Abby, was as in your face in this book as the others she seemed kind of subdued compared to the first book. Although given everything that happened I guess it's understandable. She still had her witty verging on snarky streak which I really enjoyed.
After the last book I was hesitant to cheer for any love interest yet Talivar won me over. I felt he was a better match for Abby than Brystion. Sigh.
Now this book could be read as a stand alone, but I feel you'd miss out on a great story if you did. The book does supply some background so you'd know what's going on. From the beginning of this book I was hooked and just pulled deeper and deeper into the plot. Yet the ending left me wanting to throw the book against the wall, good thing it was on my ereader. I won't spill to much but will say it was a cliffhanger.

  1. I have this book coming up for review. I'm almost done With the first book and I am loving it! Although I cheated a bit by reading your review and now I am a little nervous about Brystion. Uh oh lol

    1. Sorry Michelle. I tried not to give to much away. You'll see what I mean at the end of bk1 beginning of bk2. Still good though.
