Lord Of Shadows by Alix Rickloff
Who is working the demon arts . . .
Was it her murdered father? Her fugitive brother? It has been seven years since Lady Sabrina Douglas cloistered herself with the Sisters of High Danu, but the questions remain. She is Other—a mixture of Fey and mortal—quietly using her powers to heal. That is, until she saves a half-drowned man, his soldier’s body a roadmap of scars, his fathomless eyes filled with heartbreaking loneliness. The inexplicable connection overwhelms her defenses, touching her heart, mind . . . and body.
. . . and to what end?
A man with no memory, Daigh MacLir seeks his past even as unknown threats fill him with monstrous rage and inhuman abilities. But as a desperate game of hunter and hunted is played out from ballrooms to bedrooms, what Daigh discovers is more chilling than anyone could possibly imagine. Defying death was only the first step in the task he has been given, and Sabrina is his last hope. But dare he risk involving her? Daigh has been summoned to find an ancient king, and even the powers of love may not be enough to win the battle against the powers of darkness.
I don't know...i have a hard time with books that are set so far back in time. i'm not sure if it's because of the wording or just that i can't ever seem to immerse myself in the world since it is past not future. maybe i'm closed minded who knows... Unfortunately since I couldn't seem to get into this book my review is rather short.....:(
Sabrina is a dynamic character. She is full of inner turmoil and doubt. She wants to get over her past but she just can't seem to do it. Enter Daigh(not his real name though)....He is just as confused as Sabrina and they set off on their own journey of discovery. All in All this book was okay but it just didnt capture my imagination like most books do. if you like paranormal romance that is set in the 1800s then this is the book for you. Still though, the author told the story well and it was very detailed
