Review - Shadow's Curse (Imnada Brotherhood #2)

The second novel in the dark and sexy Imnada Brotherhood trilogy featuring shape-shifters in Regency-era England.

Suffering under a horrible curse and renounced by his clan, the Imnada shape-shifter, David St. Leger, stalks the London nights in the form of a large black wolf, channeling his desperate rage on thieves and murderers. But when he’s captured by the very woman he sought to rescue, he’s thrown into the magical and dangerous world of the Other—half human, half-Fey, and one of the Imnada’s ancient enemies.

Forced by her half-brother to use her gift of necromancy as a money-making scheme, Callista Hawthorne wants only to flee to her aunt in Scotland where she’ll be safe. Considering David her last hope, she offers him a deal—freedom in exchange for his protection on the long journey north.

Now in a race for their lives, Other and Imnada must put aside centuries of animosity and work together if they are to overcome the dark forces intent on stopping them before they reach safety. For Callista is far more powerful than she knows, and with her help and her love, David may finally be able to break the curse of the Imnada…

My review:

I dont normally read historicals, but since this series has a paranormal aspect I decided to give it a shot.  For me I thought it started out slow, but I think that could be my adjusting to the time and setting because once I was used to it the story really flew by.

The characters were were developed and interesting and had their own backstory that was useful to know for their development, but did not slow down the pace of the story being told.  Both the hero and heroine are strong, capable characters that learn to not only work together but to see that their differences arent quite so different after all.

This book is the second in the series, and while you dont necessarily have to read them in order, it does help since a lot of what is explained in book 1 was not explained in this one.  The world the characters are in, is so well developed you can really picture it.  It is incredibly well done and envisioned and I cant imagine these characters being in any other setting 

I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a paranormal historical.  I know I am really looking forward to book 3 and seeing what happens next.
