Before I begin with the review of Shadow Play: A Dark Fantasy Novel - The Fae Games Volume 1 by Jill Ramsower, let me just comment and praise the cover of this novel. I have to admit that the cover lured me in and made me pick this novel more than anything else. That being said, the story and the way it was written are terrific, and I loved the way the author captured my attention and kept it. I loved Becca and how level headed she was, even when things were not going her way, and how she fought the oppression head on.
This is the story of Rebecca Peterson, a young woman who finally has the chance to follow her dreams and leave her old life behind. She grabs the opportunity with both hands and travels all the way to Ireland to achieve what she always wanted. However, reality comes crashing down when she realizes that some strange and terrifying creatures are descending to earth and devouring humans. Only Becca can see these creatures and understand what is happening around her. She gives a sigh of relief when she meets two guys who are also able to see them; however, she is not sure if she can trust either of them or if she should even trust them. Can Becca do something to stop these strange creatures? Can she trust anyone in this chaos?
This is an incredible novel that I simply devoured. It is fast paced and beautifully developed. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters and overall flow. There was no flaw that I could find and I simply laid back and relaxed while reading this action-packed novel. In fact, I can see this novel becoming a movie because it has the potential to attract a lot of fans. The character development was amazing and believable and I enjoyed the tension between Becca, Ronan and Lochlan. I can’t wait for the next novel in the series. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! Simply brilliant.
