Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?


Jenna Black has certainly turned up the smexi in 'Shadowspell', at one stage I thought we may have crossed over the border from YA land into uber smexi land, but no complaints from me, just saying it did get a tad OMG at one stage, or!!!

Jenna has got me bouncing up and down for book # 3 to hit the shelves in July 2011 titled  'Sirensong'. I enjoyed , 'Glimmerglass', but it was written for a younger audience, but 'Shadowspell' I think kept me entertained quite nicely and I would think it's aimed at the older end of YA. New characters were introduced and I loved Arawn, the Erlking and look forward to reading more about him. I was looking forward to smexi Keane , after reading him in 'Glimmerglass' as I thought he gave that book a little lift, but along comes Arawn and he is one bad boy, but one smexi, get what he wants guy. Kinda helps that he wears black leather and depending on the occassion rides a motorcycle.

Keane is still a fave of mine and things are getting a bit confusing for me. Do I wear Keane's T-shirt or Arawn's?

Shadowspell has lots of smexi guys, Finn is still on guard, Keane is training Dana in the ways of staving off an attacker, but does he want more? Dana is causing all sorts of headaches for Finn and her father as you can't cage this bird and expect her not to take flight.

With the Erlking now thrown into the mix, this story has gotten real interesting and might I add heated up a notch or two. Ethan is still gorgeous and smexi , but he has his own problems. Dana has to think seriously about all these guys in her life as some are far more dangerous than others.

The Erlking has me intrigued. His emotions sometimes show through going against what he represents or is that again a ploy. Dana is like a bug caught in a spiders web and she is going to have to figure out how to not get eaten.

Kimber is a great friend and always there for Dana. I'm busting to give away storyline but I will not as I read this in one sitting as I just loved the fast pace and rather extra smexi YA read.

Can't wait to read , 'Sirensong', to see how Dana handles the conundrum she has herself in...* wiggles eyebrows*.
Read away, I'm sure you will enjoy:D

P.s. I love the cover, can't wait to see, 'Sirensong' book cover.



  1. Since I am not 16, I can say smexi is definitely a good thing!

  2. I love Keane! I really want to read more about him, there was only tiny tidbits in glimmerglass. Is he mentioned more in Shadowspell?!
    And please tell me if Dana aborts Ethan- hes such a jerk!

  3. Hi Kayma,

    Lots more of Keane!! But another spunk in the form of Arawn, Erlking. Ethan..hmmmm I can't tell you as it will spoil but I have grown to like Ethan. It's not all cut and dry with his attitude. I think this book was awesome read.

  4. Cool. I love this blog, BTW. I wish there were more contests to win Shadowspell, none of the local bookstores have it. Can't wait to read!!!

  5. Thanks Kayma:D
