Lord of Shadows: Review

From Goodreads:
Kelly Green had plans for her senior year of college.
Graduate. Get a job. And hopefully find love.
What she didn't include was:
1. Getting kidnapped by an arrogant vampire
2. Getting swept into his world of eternal darkness
3. And she certainly didn't plan on falling for him...

Mason is the leader of the Rebels, an army fighting in a secret war that is about to get real. Vampires have enslaved elves for centuries, and Mason's men fight for their freedom.

He's willing do anything to see his people as the victors... whatever it takes.
This includes kidnapping a woman who isn't what she seems and doing whatever he must in order to keep her close...including pretending to fall in love...But all the magic in the world of Asea can't protect the heart and sooner or later, they'll both have to make a choice that could change the future of an entire nation.

In the world of Asea, destiny's course is set like a dance. Nothing in life has been left up to chance.

"Destiny must be fulfilled."
*Are they ready?*

*Are you?*

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book! The synopsis was really intriguing-if a little confusing, what with the vampire leader-vampires enslaved elves-vampires fight for freedom? I think I might have copied the synopsis a bit incorrectly! But yeah, I was really interested in how the plot would play out!

Kelly was awesome to read about! She's just about done in school for History, and yeah, then she gets kidnapped. And falls in love with her kidnapper. But there's more to her than even she knew, and I loved as that was discovered and explored!

This world was very interesting, the world of Asea. I'm really glad that there was a map, and a glossary, and a list of the gods and the powers they give and such. Though there was a lot of it, and it took a while to sort the information out, well, yeah, it was very interesting world to be in!

That ending, wow! That was a hard-fought victory, and it could've cost Mason and Kelly's relationship. Almost. And then there was some backstabbing political maneuvering which isn't going to be great, and then a moment of happiness! Great ending!

I really enjoyed this book, and the back of the book said there's going to be a sequel, so yeah!

As a young girl, Shania Tyler has always been fascinated with the world of vampires, dragons, fairies, elves and angels. So strong was her fascination that she always felt there is indeed such a world out there. A world where creatures of supernatural powers can transcend beyond time and space, not confined to the rules of the human world, and being able to live for eternity.

In Shania’s writings, you will find an infusion of passionate romance, action and mystery, and sometimes with a touch of suspense. She enjoys creating a dark complex world containing entities of a supernatural or otherworldly nature and being able to bring a romantic flavour to the plot and amongst the characters. It brings her great joy to see her childhood fantasies becoming a reality through the pages that she wrote. Some of her inspirations of writings include Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, J.R. Ward's The Black Dagger Brotherhood series and Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Shania's latest book is the paranormal romance, Lord of Shadows.
