Just as action-packed and edgy as Melissa Marr’s first three novels in the Wicked Lovely series. I really enjoy how the series moves around amongst the main characters – yup we don’t even heard from Aislinn in this one and I enjoyed that! Sorry Ash fans… This installment of the Wicked Lovely series concentrates on Devil, the High Court Assassin and Ani, Gabriel’s daughter. Reading this one – I could feel the tension that Ani carried with her – I loved it!!!
Radiant Shadows as I noted centres around Ani and Devlin. Ani is struggling with who or what she is – is she mortal or is she a Hound? Her father, Gabriel doesn’t acknowledge her as a Hound and has set all these restrictions that no one can come near her without feeling the wrath of Gabriel – until Devlin enters the Crow’s Nest Club. Devlin was sent back from Faerie to ensure Seth’s safety and finds Ani. Their attraction takes them down a path where they discover their true destiny.
Action and intrigue throughout! Another awesome read by Melissa Marr!
