Review: Queen of Shadows

Queen of Shadows ( Shadow World #1)

by Dianne Sylvan


Meet Miranda Grey—music and magic are in her blood.

Overwhelmed by her uncanny ability to manipulate people's emotions through her music, Miranda Grey comes to the attention of vampire lord David Solomon. Believing he can help bring her magic under control, David discovers that Miranda's powers may affect the vampire world too...


3.5 stars

This was a very good book, very entertaining.
The beginning is strong, with a raping scene in one of the first chapters. I didn't particularly enjoy that. I don't think it added anything to the story and honestly, I never like those kind of scenes. This is the only reason why I didn't give it 4 stars.

I liked Miranda's "power". It sounds pretty cool to me, though I could relate to her and the way she felt about it. It may be a little overwhelming to know and feel, what everyone is feeling, ALL THE TIME. That's why she gets away of people, even her best friend.
Although influencing people's mood could have some perks. :D

David is an intriguing character. I'm pretty fond of him. It was weird to see a vampire over 300 years old being that geeky but I think it fits his personality well.

The writing is ok, didn't blew my mind but the pace and plot compensate.

I'm looking forward to reading the second book.
