Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Complex, Heartfelt PNR With a Bit of Holiday Charm

Shadow Silence (Whisper Hollow) - Yasmine Galenorn

“Every time you walk through a dark pathway, you lose something. You lose a little bit of the sense that the world’s fair, you lose a little bit of your naivete. But you also gain from your journey. You gain strength, and wisdom, and the realization that you can survive more than you thought you could.”

Yasmine Galenorn never fails to create a spectacular world for her readers, with lush backgrounds and multidimensional characters paving the way to a page-turning experience. And this book, Shadow Silence, was complex, heartfelt, and even had a bit of holiday charm mixed in.

 

I’ve become a true fan of Galenorn’s writing style, especially with how she can build worldscapes that are so intricate that they feel real. And I would expect that’s a challenging feat when writing a fantasy series. I think I was equally impressed with the lively offbeat characters and with the small town of Whisper Hollow itself. This was my first foray into this series as I somehow skipped over book one. But I found it fairly easy to figure out the logistics, although admittedly there were a lot of characters to keep tabs on.
