Review of Christine Palmer's Shadow Play


After a whirlwind month of NaNoWriMo, I was so pleased to be able to take a break from my writing and read. I was even more pleased when I received an advanced copy of the first book in the Others series, Shadow Tracker by Christine Palmer.
To be honest when I first picked up the book, I wasn’t too sure what to expect as the paranormal world is very different from the vamps and shifters that I normally read, but I instantly connected with the tough as nails heroine, Kyra. And then there was the hero. Whew! It was love at first description for Ryder. I also enjoyed the aspect Kyra and Ryder weren’t instantly attracted to each other. Both with strong romance hang ups and that truly were avoided the big “L”.

Each of the lead characters practically jumped off the pages. The emotional connect was strong and the backstory wonderfully weaved together. While the romance is strong and sexy, the plot was as equally drawing.
Shadow Tracker had me feeling all the emotions as we travel down through Kyra’s adventure physically and emotionally. The story was strong and it had suspense, romance and a surprise ending.

I would definitely continue reading the series and will be looking for it! If I had a star rating book system, I would give Shadow Track four sparkling Christmas stars.

 Shadow Tracker Description:
A small town in the mountains of Marshall, Montana is being plagued by an unknown entity. It’s mutilating and killing the women of the town. At his wits end the Sheriff of Marshall has nowhere to turn but to a friend. A friend, with the abilities to track and kill any prey.

Ryder doesn’t normally do mortal issues. However, he can’t turn his back on a friend. Besides he is the best at what he does. After all he is a Tracker, an ancient race with unparalleled abilities to track down any prey. With one of the three essential elements: Taste, Touch or Smell. Heartless and cold, Ryder knows what needs to be done and performs his duty without feeling.
Kyra, an Air Element and the only female Elemental Enforcer, is sent on a fact finding mission to Marshall, by the Druid Council. She needs to find out exactly what is happening in Montana before the Tribunal goes in and kills everyone.
The last thing she expects to find is a Tracker, and is even more surprised to find out that he is on her side. But can they get past their initial feelings upon meeting and the sexual tension? Or will the evil that is living in the mountain kill them both.

Ryder and Kyra must learn to work together to destroy the shadow and save Kyra from a fate worse than death. When pure evil is involved is love enough?
