Kyra was a strong lead character. She kicks butt and doesn't shy away from danger easily. Ryder is a bit of a hard ass and not as easy to like until you get to know him a little better. There is a great deal of push and shove between the two with their stubbornness and the romance doesn't start right away but when it does it was fun to witness. I enjoyed the supporting characters and felt they were adequately developed. Since it is the first in the series there is a bit more character building involved with them. There were a few instances where I felt things were not explained enough or resolved enough but it didn't keep me from enjoying SHADOW PLAY until the end.

The characters were extremely easy to connect with and the story was easy to follow. The author did a good job at conveying background and laying out the world for her readers. Book Two is slated to release in the Spring of 2013 and features 2 different characters. Although I will miss Kyra and Ryder at the front I'm sure I will enjoy the new characters as well. ( )

Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fantastically unique read. The characters were also really well defined and described. Kyra is a female lead to look up to, she is strong in character and does the best that she can. Ryder takes some warming up to but in the end he is just as hot and steamy as anyone can imagine. I loved the fact that Kyra and Ryder just did not magically have that instant attraction pulling them together in love at first sight. There struggles through different problems made their relationship more realistic and believable. I am really looking up to future books in the series.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988555719, Paperback)

A small town in the mountains of Marshall, Montana is being plagued by an unknown entity. It’s mutilating and killing the women of the town. At his wits end the Sheriff of Marshall has nowhere to turn but to a friend. A friend, with the abilities to track and kill any prey. Ryder doesn’t normally do mortal issues. However, he can’t turn his back on a friend. Besides he is the best at what he does. After all he is a Tracker, an ancient race with unparalleled abilities to track down any prey. With one of the three essential elements: Taste, Touch or Smell. Heartless and cold, Ryder knows what needs to be done and performs his duty without feeling. Kyra, an Air Element and the only female Elemental Enforcer, is sent on a fact finding mission to Marshall, by the Druid Council. She needs to find out exactly what is happening in Montana before the Tribunal goes in and kills everyone. The last thing she expects to find is a Tracker, and is even more surprised to find out that he is on her side. But can they get past their initial feelings upon meeting and the sexual tension? Or will the evil that is living in the mountain kill them both. Ryder and Kyra must learn to work together to destroy the shadow and save Kyra from a fate worse than death. When pure evil is involved is love enough?
