Review: Seduced by Shadows
This is the first book in the Marked Souls series by Jessa Slade.
When Sera Littlejohn meets a violet-eyed stranger, he reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, and Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire. Ferris Archer takes Sera under his wing, now that she is a talyan - possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer's league of warriors have never fought beside a female before, and never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera.
With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever.
This is my first DNF - Did Not Finish
Seduced by Shadows sounds promising in the blurb - but fell short in actuality.
At first it appears to be your typical 'tormented guy finds girl' yada, yada, yada. And it was in the beginning - but then it just lost all the momentum it had and died.
I made it to page 232 out of 387 - and I just put it down. I'm not interested in the characters or what happens to them. This could be due to the fact that out of those 232 pages we only had 2 encounters with the bad critters - the rest was talk. And not good talk - boring talk.
Seduced by Shadows was just boring.
My rating is DNF.
