"This is a trilogy you'll want to get lost in." --RT Magazine

About the Author

KIRA BRADY writes apocalyptic paranormal romance set in a grisly modern day Seattle. Her trilogy debuts August 2012 from Kensington Publishing. A native Seattleitte, Kira spent her childhood hiking the rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest and drying out by the fire with a good book and a mug of something hot. She graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania, where she met her real life Prince Charming and promptly dragged him back to sunless Seattle. She fell in love with historic, haunted cities in graduate school. Now she writes about the twisted cities of her imagination, where wraiths and shape-shifters stalk the night and love redeems even the darkest heart. When not writing, she can be found drinking inordinately large mugs of Assam tea, knitting wool socks, and raising a wee heroine and hero-in-training.

Smart. Steamy. Intricate. Luminous. Dark. I can't pick just one adjective to describe Brady's second book in the Deadglass Trilogy! In this book we focus on a new hero and heroine than in the first book, though they are a set we came to know in the first. I find that many trilogies suffer because the author can't find the right balance between leaping into the action and re-telling a lot of the first book to catch people up. Brady handles this tough aspect masterfully, sending us right into the action from page one, and weaving little reminders in here and there to help get us back up to speed. She plays well off the world she's built for you in book one (Hearts of Darkness), but breathes fresh life into it with the depth of her new characters and the exciting twist to the world that came at the end of book one.

Hang on tight and get ready to lose yourself in this saga and in the post-apocalyptic world created by The Master of World Building, Kira Brady!

I read a lot of paranormal romance novels but it's rare that I stick with a series after the first book because the world or leading couple didn't make a lasting impression on me. This is not the case with the Deadglass series. I was so happy when I found out the heroine was going to be Grace `Reaper' Mercer; she definitely stood out from the secondary characters in the first book, Hearts of Darkness. Hearts of Shadows is the second book in the Deadglass series, and it picks up six months later with Seattle's Drekars (dragon shifters), Kivatis (totem animal shifters), and humans rebuilding after the Unraveling (Gate of Hell was open). Aptrgangr and wraiths are loose in Seattle and to make matters worse Kingu, a demi-god is wrecking havoc everywhere he goes looking for his long lost lover's heart and the Tablet of Destiny.

Grace is the type of heroine I always love reading about, one that is strong, independent, kick-butt, and has the I-don't-give-a-f**k attitude. Grace is only human but she battles Aptrgangr and wraiths daily. She wants to protect those who can't protect themselves. Grace had a rough life. Her parents died when she was young and was left on her own defending/providing for herself on the mean streets of Seattle. Around that same time, her situation got worst. Sven Norsgad, a Drekar bound Grace to him as a blood slave making Grace his personal plaything and fighter. After Sven died, Grace wasn't freed but found herself bound to the next Regent, Leif. Grace has a burning hatred for all Drekar after what Sven put her through, and Leif is no exception. Grace has fortified a wall around herself so she doesn't ever get hurt again but the more time she spends with Leif her perspective starts to change...maybe not all Drekar are bad.

Hearts of Shadow is a story filled with danger and pain and loss... and through it all winds the strong ties of love. There is so much going on in this story! It's a post apocalyptic battle to keep the world from going to the gods and demi-gods control. I love Kira Brady's world building. She has created an alternate world, focusing on Seattle, with Babylonian and Norse mythology, dragons (!), a Native American shape-shifting race, magic and steampunk elements. Hearts of Shadows weaves all these cords together along with a passionate love story that sucked me in and wouldn't let me go till the last page.

The heroine is Grace. She's tormented, tortured, bound and yet still burns bright with a fierce determination for freedom, for choice. The word fierce embodies Grace in my imagination. Tiny but fierce. She has a warriors spirit. She strives to defend and protect others from the losses she's suffered. I adored Grace. I hurt for the betrayals and indignities she'd been through... I was rooting for her to let down some of the walls she'd built around herself and give love a chance.

And the hero... Leif. *swoon* He's a scholar and a dragon. He is the leader of the Drekar since his brother Norgard went off the deep end and died bringing chaos and hell into world. There is a lot on his plate to say the least. He didn't ask for responsibility. He's a genius and would prefer to tinker and invent tools to help rebuild civilization. But once he meets Grace his attitude towards ruling adjusts and I liked seeing his strength, protectiveness and intelligence channeled towards helping Grace and ultimately all of Seattle.

There are so many obstacles between them. She's human. He's not. She is slave bound to him because of his brother.

I LOVE Hearts of Shadow, by Kira Brady! This second book in the Deadglass Trilogy could not come fast enough for me after reading the first book in the trilogy, Hearts of Darkness. After an epic battle, Seattle is being rebuilt by shapeshifters and humans trying to work together to restore the functions of the decimated city. To do this, they must use old technologies, evoking an interesting steampunk element. Dragon shapeshifter, Lief, is an admirable hero who takes on the responsibilities for correcting his brother's actions. He falls in love with Grace, an emotionally scarred woman who fights bravely in the shadows to save the human race. Their love story is about self-sacrifice--and the true meaning of love. Hearts of Shadow is a steamy, paranormal romance with excellent storytelling, world building and character creation! I hope to read many more books by award-winning author Kira Brady!
