Take an unbelievably sexy fae
heroine who thinks she's a geek
and a blue metalfae, and you have
one steamy urban fantasy in the
latest Shadowfae Chronicle. The
unique characters have few morals
and are totally engaging, and a
colorful alternate world in contemporary Melbourne is the perfect spot
for the magical, fast-paced plot.
Ice lives in a shadowy fairy world sheathed in glamour. Indigo, tall, sculpted and blue, is a metalfae. Every time Ice sees him, she makes a gibbering fool of herself. He wants her too, but he has a dark side he prefers to keep hidden, so he gives her the brush-off.
Indigo steals a mirror for the demon lord and takes a peek. Suddenly he's hearing dark whispers in his head. Ice is a pickpocket, and her fairy world is turned upside down when she steals the magic mirror. Ice and Indigo try to undo the malevolent spell they're under, but it's not that easy. (ST.
