A strong 3.5 kick ass heels...Shadows & Dust totally jumped at me and pulled me in. I absolutely love this world that Yvonne Nicholas has created. I love the fighting and different characters she brings into this tale. There are angels, demons, vampires and ass kicking battle warriors….l.o.v.e it! I am girl who loves action stories, so Shadows & Dust totally worked for me. And I adore that I got to read more of Dmitri. Hmmmm, sexy ass vampire.

Now when this author tells you this story is not for the faint of heart, it isn’t. This is a very graphic novella. As far as the story itself goes, like I said…I love it. I enjoy reading strong independent female characters and Havoc was no exception. I liked the fact that she wasn’t overly cocky because she had an ability that could pretty much take out an entire city block. I liked that she was not sure…almost scared of her power. It made her more relatable. My issue with Havoc was that she was a little too hard-headed and too quick with the attitude.

Also, my issue with this tale is some of the inappropriate times that certain things went on. I won’t give much away, but one thing is that I just don’t like when sex is going on during a battle scene. I personally think it takes something away from it…to me, its like a distraction.

Other than that, this is a great story with pretty well rounded characters. The story arc is exciting and oh so very intriguing to read. I look forward to see where Ms. Nicholas takes me with this world.
