Susan K. Hamilton’s writing is delicious and her intricate world-building is fascinating. Creating a world of fantasy characters, with believable motivations and a compelling plot, in a setting of real-world Boston, was brilliantly done. Adding a romantic element was just icing on the cake, and some of it was actually pretty HOT... adults only. Hamilton creates a vivid world and spins a great story. I found ‘Shadow King’ to be a very enjoyable read!

Cover:
The cover should be revised, because it looks quite amateurish designed. An improvement of the picture would enhance the cover a lot.

The crossover between our real world and the fantasy world described here is subtle enough to raise a realistic eyebrow. Undercurrents of realism in the description of the city and some of the behavior of characters keep this from getting bogged down in too much magic. A touch gritty in places with a satisfying conclusion. Oh, and the female lead? Not a pushover.

Susan K. Hamilton shows herself to be a master world builder in a book that works like the best fantasy novels should. The cover could use a bit of a polish, but the contents are worth the read.

This was such a fun read, and I loved the world that Susan Hamilton built. It felt familiar and strange at the same time. And the way she built up the relationship between Aohdan and Seireadan, it was so tense and romantic and sexy!

This was an entertaining read, but nothing to exciting. To me it gave off toned down 50 Shades of Grey feel in a fantasy world. It started off slow, but did pick up pace about half way through. I will want to check out the sequels to see how everything plays out, but I won’t be running out to get them as soon as they release.

Her new novel, "Shadow King," is releasing from Inkshares on 10/2/18. A dark urban fantasy, Shadow King was a Top 10
