Nita Good Book

Lately, I've been reading quite a bit a romance, mostly historical and paranormal with a little contemporary mixed in. I also enjoy fantasy, urban fantasy, and history.

Hearts of Darkness (Deadglass) - Kira Brady Oh geez, I really really enjoyed this book. I loved the mythology and the very non-black and white characters. This is a paranormal romance with a definite urban fantasy feel. It takes place in a dark Seattle where the feud between the Kivati and the Drekar, both powerful races of shapeshifters, ever rages. Kayla has come to Seattle to find out what happened to her sister. She doesn't believe the story that her sister died of a drug overdose. On her mission to find out the truth, she is approached by Hart, a wolf shifter, who is looking for a necklace he believes Kayla's sister stole from his boss.

The book is a bit dark and focuses a little more on the story than the romance, but not enough for me to feel like the romance was lacking in any way. The side characters were just as fascinating as the main couple. Brady gave just enough of a tease into these characters' lives to make me really really look forward to reading their books, especially Corbette and Lucia's. They have the most complicated relationship. How will they finally come together? Apparently I will have to wait until February of 2014 when Hearts of Chaos is published to find out. That makes me a little sad.

Very, very well done.
