I just finished this book, all in one sitting! I couldn't put it down (it's now 3a.m.!). I love the sexual tension between Rowan, the witch, and "vampire Rick". Rick's attitude was definitely not like the usual vampire male's, and I found it hilarious to read about a vampire "horndog"! I've read, and enjoyed, Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and Mary Janice Davidson. I will be adding Morgan Hawke to this collection, and I can't wait for Book 2!

which is about to explode!

Rowan is a witch with incredible powers, telekinesis and mind reading being only two of them. When her boyfriend walks into the bar and accuses her of using him for sex, he is far from wrong. He doesn't know it, but she's got to recharge her powers somehow. After they fight, he admits to cheating on Rowan and walks out, leaving her angry and confused. In some ways she is pleased he is out of her life for good, but annoyed at having to go through the whole dating process again. Still, not being one to mope around, she continues working in the booth telling fortunes by tarot card. When her best friend walks in proclaiming she has just met Mr Right, the cute gothic hunk at the bar, named Rick, things turn awkward. How can Rowan warn her that the successful architect is really a hungry vampire not to be trusted, when he looks so damn sexy and is actually making eyes at her?

To add to Rowan's problems, a sorcerer with two shadows and an evil aura swans into the bar and starts up a conversation with the vampire, Rick. Slightly amused she watches the hunter become the hunted, as the sorcerer feeds off the vampire's powers. However, when she consults the tarot for guidance, she is forewarned of the impenitent destruction of the whole club - unless she does something to stop the sorcerer, they will all die. And if that doesn't kill her, Rick's unwelcome, undead houseguest, Klaus, just might!

Once again, Morgan Hawke has cast her magic, producing a fabulous tale of witches, sorcerers, zombies and vampires that will keep you spellbound to the very end. Bind this with the author's impeccable subject knowledge and natural flair for capturing the mood, and you have an all-star cast just bursting to reveal their supernatural secrets.

Enchantment in Crimson by Morgan Hawke is exhilarating. Entertaining, arousing and breathtaking are a few words that come to mind during and after reading it. Ms. Hawke sets a niche all her own with Rowan and Rick, leaving the reader wanting to beg for more. The adventure in the pages of book one of the House of Shadows series is one hell of a thrilling ride, which is fun, yet serious and no where near finished. Rowan and Rick are a dynamite duo that I hope have many stories to come. Good vs. evil has never been this much fun or anticipated. The strength in the characters matches the strength of Ms. Hawke's words, the fighting of evil is near believable and the next story can't come soon enough. The characters alone and the heat they generate are worth reading this tale, it's just even better to have everything else done so well too.

Rowan is a witch who is a reference librarian and supplements her income by fortune telling at a Goth club where she sees Rick (a vampire--who would suspect one in a Got club)? A number of other examples of humor sometimes broad but never as off the wall as Jaid Black. A number of well written erotic scenes, comparable to Angela Knight but not as frequent. Not as out there as the Authors Interstellar Service & Discipline: Victorious Starwith its extreme sex.

Overall a plot that falls just short of excellent. One of the strong points is that the main villain appears to be a sociopath rather than a traditional villain. He has a bunch of people killed by monsters because it is a convenient means to his goal. There are other players here that are running both the main villain and the ancient vampire but we never see their masters or their masters goals. The structure is well done as everything isn't laid out in detail--just like real life, there are always answers missing.

The characters are compelling and very well drawn.

What saves this book from 5 stars is persistent editorial and factual errors. Rowan's first awakening of her powers with her first sexual encounter is very rough (her powers depend on sex). There are other spots including guns and inconsistencies. If these were absent I would rate this as outstanding.

Still an excellent read.

How many times can an author use the word 'sour' in a book? Too many. From sour expressions to sour looks to sour smiles, by the time I hit chapter three I wanted to buy Ms. Hawke a thesaurus. Add to that the juvenile inner running commentary of a heroine who has to repeat back every question she's asked, and 'House of Shadows' is a down right irritating read. By chapter seven Rowan and Rick talked and behaved so stupidly, I wanted someone, anyone to kill them and put me out of my misery. How an architect who was schooled at the Bauhaus could have the vocabulary of a middle schooler was beyond me. "Whatever!" And don't get me started on the numerous plot inconsistencies. This was just bad.
