Synopsis: In the parallel future, mankind has created its own worst nightmare – a hybrid species of supernatural beings that demands a high toll in return for peace.  Follow the adventure of a tortured man seeking redemption and a brother and sister, the unwilling product of both worlds, torn apart, determined to reunite with one another.  And remember that nothing is what it seems under the domes.

My Review:  Shadows and Fire is a well thought out story. I like the premise and the colorful world that Fales has painted.  She manages to creatively weave an intricate plot in a minimum of pages.

While the book is short, it is packed full of interesting characters.  If I could find fault with this book, that is where it would be.  I found myself taking a deep breath with each chapter as the characters changed and I had to try to remember who they were and what their role in the story was.  Had the book been any longer, I was going to start making a list.  Luckily, this is the first in a series and having peeked at the next book, there is a glossary at the front that gives me all the information that I felt I needed for the first book!

I’m looking forward to Sleight of Hand which is up next!
