Shadow King is an urban fantasy novel written for adults, penned by author Susan K. Hamilton. Combining the modern world with the old legends of the Faerie and Fae people, this exciting and romantic adventure follows our heroine Seireadan Moore. A seer haunted by visions of the figure who destroyed everything in her past, Seireadan’s mission comes to head when she crosses paths with Fae mob boss Aohdan Collins. A playboy and a ruthless Boston gangster, Aohdan’s life is set on a new course when he meets Seireadan, and the pair soon embark on a magical and dark crime adventure that is sure to change them both forever.
Author Susan K. Hamilton has cleverly created a romance novel which ticks all the boxes, packaged beautifully within a lavish urban Fae fantasy setting. The excitement of the dangerous relationship between Seireadan and Aohdan has plenty of punch, with his mafia-style life and the violence and intrigue that go with it. But then, layered on top of the bad boy genre, we find the well described and highly emotive magical story line of Seireadan’s visions. Bringing an epic history of destroyed worlds and displaced people into the mix, the adventures deepens and gains meaning and complexity as the plot continues. Hamilton balances the genres and mixes them well, throwing in cinematic romance and violence with a flair for modern dialogue that keeps the scenes exciting on every page. Overall, Shadow King is a novel overflowing with content, and an exciting and satisfying tale not to be missed.
