Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the latest Light Warriors novel from O'Shea (In the Midnight Hour), Creed Blackwood remains a demon hunter, and he is plagued by the temptations of the dark side. Seth, a demon far more powerful than any Creed has encountered, unsuccessfully tempted Maia Frasier: she stole some of Seth's power before forsaking her own power and giving up demon hunting. Enraged, Seth vows to destroy Maia the best way he knows how—by attacking her powerful sister, Ryne, and stealing her power. Creed shows up on Maia's door, injured and in need of assistance. Maia, despite having no magic, determines to help him and to do anything to save her sister from harm. The plot tends toward involution, but Maia is a strong, realistically vulnerable heroine, and gruff Creed melts almost immediately. (June)

More About the Author

Patti O'Shea's passions are writing, airplanes and traveling. Fortunately, she's been able to enjoy all three. After receiving a degree in advertising copywriting, she took a job with a major U.S. airline and now works in 757 Engineering. Besides teaching her about the planes she loves, it's given her an opportunity to travel to places like Australia, Papua New Guinea and Canada's Yukon Territory.

Writing, though, remains her primary love. Patti created her first romance when she was in junior high school and has been hooked ever since. She should have figured out she was a writer years earlier, however, since her dolls had such involved lives, complete with goals, motivation and conflict.

Magic trouble-shooters, demon Gods and hot men with hot romance all mixed together. What more could a happy reader want? "In Twilight's Shadow" picks up where Ryne left off, with her older sister Maia and Ryne's friend who betrayed her, Creed.

It's fun to watch this author put them through their paces in order to earn their happy ending.

This book is setting us up for more, too (at least I hope so!) Can't wait to read more about this whole new world. Thanks Patti O!

I have been intrigued with Maia Frasier since meeting her in her sister's book, In the Midnight Hour. Now at last, we get to find out the reasons she ceded her magic all those years ago.

Maia left the world of Gineal Troubleshooters behind with her magic and thought she was done for good. Unfortunately for her, you can't run from who you are and this has never been more apparent than when a demon fighting Troubleshooter shows up on her doorstep, wounded and desperate for help. Now she is reluctantly drawn back in to the battle when she discovers a new enemy may not be so new after all...

Creed Blackwood has nowhere else to go. He is on the trail of the most powerful demon he has ever faced and is actually in danger of losing this battle. His magic has become unreliable. When you mix in frequent blackouts where he has no memory of what happened, it is a recipe for disaster.

Having ceded her magic, Maia is no longer a welcome member of the Gineal warriors. However, she has ties to this demon and is the only one who can help Creed defeat him. The last thing either Creed or Maia needs is to fall in love with a reluctant partner in the war against dark magic. Will they find the strength they need In Twilight's Shadow?

I loved In the Midnight Hour but I think I loved In Twilight's Shadow even more! Dark, sexy, and full of surprises, I couldn't put it down. Maia got my attention and I have been waiting for her story. Then there's Creed Blackwood who did something unforgiveable in the recent past, even though he thought it was for the greater good. How could I not fall in love with not one, but two, black sheep in the Troubleshooter world?

This second book in the Light Warriors series was even better than the first. The characters were rich and multi layered. The love story had a great natural progression. The world of the Light Warriors is becoming more fascinating. I didn't even mind the ending, after all, there will be more books to come.

Maia Frasier was raised among the Gineal and trained to be a troubleshooter. Several years ago, when Maia finally realized that she had fallen to the dark forces and that her younger sister, Ryne, would be sent to kill her, Maia willingly ceded her magical powers. Now she lives in Minneapolis, human but not human, struggling to survive as normal humans do. Maia believes her days of dealing with demons. So she is aghast when a wounded enforcer turns up in her home insisting on sanctuary and claiming that Ryne's life is in danger.

Creed Blackwood is after a high level demon in the area. He desperately needs Maia's help to hunt the demon down, especially since Creed believes his powers are becoming erratic. Lately Creed has been blacking out, acting strangely, and doing things he does not later recall. Creed's Gineal reputation has always been for being cold and lethal. He was the strongest and baddest troubleshooter until Ryne's power level became known. By rights, Creed should have gone to Ryne for sanctuary and help since she is the troubleshooter in charge of the Minneapolis area; however, Creed had withheld vital information in the not-too-distant past which almost caused Ryne's death. (Story in the book titled "In the Midnight Hour".) Needless-to-say, Ryne would refuse. Worse, Ryne would call for healers to help Creed's condition, something he does NOT want.

Maia wants to deny Creed sanctuary too. But when she learns that the demon he is hunting is Seth, Maia knows she really has no choice. Seth is the main reason Maia fell to dark forces. When Maia ceded her magical powers, she also managed to betray Seth in the most devious of ways.

This book is the follow up to 'In The Midnight Hour' which introduced Ryne Frasier, a magical enforcer, and her partner Deke Summers. In this story we follow Ryne's sister Maia as she continues to come to terms with her life as someone who has had to give up her magic. Seven years ago Maia got pulled into black magic and had to give up her powers to prevent her sister being tasked to kill her. Unfortunately Maia's whole life had been focused around her magic so without it she feels rather bereft and is stuck in an unfulfilling job.

When magical enforcer Creed Blackwood arrives at her door she initially considers turning him away as she knows that Ryne has fallen out with him. However she offers hospitality to Creed, helping him to recover and then eventually teaming up with him as he tries to hunt down a powerful demon, Seth, an entity that Maia knows on a very personal level from the days when she was sucked into black magic. What Maia doesn't realise, however, is that something evil has begun to get behind Creed's mental shields and it looks as if he is falling into black magic. Can Creed and Maia keep Ryne safe from Seth when both of them are wounded in their own ways? Can Maia have any sort of a life with a magical being now that she is without her magic? Can Ryne and Deke forgive Creed for his behaviour?

I found this book more enjoyable than the first in the series because the characters felt like they had more depth. There were still some occasional plot improbabilities and the overall world of the magical creatures was fairly loosely hung together, nevertheless the book wasn't boring and both central characters were likeable, partly because of their faults.
