What’s the story – From Goodreads:

Paranormal Investigator, Sidney Lake doesn’t jump at shadows. The weird stuff is her jurisdiction. When the mangled body of a supposedly extinct creature turns up in New York City’s subway system, she’s number one on the Medical Examiner’s speed dial.

But this case hits too close to home when clues point her toward the truth about her parents’ brutal murder twelve years ago. Her boss Mitchell Harris, questions whether she should continue to investigate. However, Sidney insists on facing her greatest fears and putting her parents’ memory to rest once and for all.

What she uncovers sheds a light on secrets that reach further into the darkness than she ever wanted to go… and leads her to a future she never imagined.

Favorite Words: “Love is the truest form of magic. It cannot be explained or quantified. It just…is.”

I always like to read a scary book around Halloween. Sarah L. Blair’s book, Darkness Shifting, fits the bill. It reminds me a lot of The X-files, which I absolutely love. Yet, she manages to tie in something else I love: King Arthur. Just on this basis, this book was a complete win.

The characters were developed well and I felt like I was part of their little group, trying to solve the mysteries. There were a lot of plot twists and turns that left me wanting more. And I will warn you: there is a lot of blood, gore, and violence. If you aren’t comfortable reading that, then please refrain from this one.

But guess what? There is also KISSING. Lots of kissing and hot passionate sessions in showers and beds. They are well done, and make me want to yell, “get it girl!”

I can’t emphasize enough how much I loved this book. It set me in the mood for Halloween and provided just the right amount of hot romance I needed. I truly can’t wait until the next book is released, and continues the story of Sidney Lake.
