Blog Tour Review: Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass


Book Summary:
For Kira Solomon, normal was never an option.Kira’s day job as an antiquities expert, but her true calling is as a Shadowchaser. Trained from youth to be one of the most lethal Chasers in existence, Kira serves the Gilead Commission dispatching the Fallen who sow discord and chaos. Of course, sometimes Gilead bureaucracy is as much a thorn in her side as anything the Fallen can muster against her.
Right now, though, she’s got a bigger problem. Someone is turning the city of Atlanta upside-down in search of a four-millennia-old Egyptian dagger that just happens to have fallen into Kira’s hands.Then there’s Khefar, the dagger’s true owner-a near-immortal 4000-year-old Nubian warrior who, Kira has to admit. looks pretty fine for his age. Joining forces is the only way to keep the weapon safe from the sinister Shadow force, but now Kira is in deep with someone who holds more secrets than she does, the one person who knows just how treacherous this fight is. Because every step closer to destroying the enemy is a step closer to losing herself to Shadow forever. . . .
My Review:
*sigh* Well what to say here...I liked it. I really did like it but (yeah we always hate the but part) I think there could have been a few things done differently. I thought the storyline was great and the character's are strong. I think this has a ton of potential as a series. I think that they had some areas in the book that were just a tad slow for an urban fantasy, otherwise I had no real problems with it, and thought it was a good story.
Overall it was an enjoyable read that I think has TONS of potential for a series. I WILL be looking for more from Seressia Glass because I think she has something with this one. I would say definitely original.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
