Shadow Fall by Seressia Glass

I've fallen into the adventures of Kira Solomon bass-ackwards.. I just finished eading a copy of Shadow Fall that I won in a competition on the Qwillery. I have stayed up all night reading about the Shadowchaser, her Nubian paramour and the assortment of beings natural and supernatural that inhabit her world. I am most certainly going to order the two prequels to find out more of what makes up the life of Kira Solomon. I heartily recommend this book to all and sundry and look forward to seeing new adventures of Kira Solomon on store shelves.
