Shadows In Light is a work of fiction in the fantasy genre and serves as the first book in the Hidden Rims Saga. It is aimed at the adult reading audience and was penned by P. M. Amaras and Paul Driggere. Set in the magical world of Nysi Afallon, the book follows Maia Anemois and Lord Kai Eurus as they investigate a serial killer set loose in their world. Sparring and exchanging barbs as their hunt begins, the two must learn to work together if they are to stop the killer from claiming more victims. A task that becomes even more high stakes when their very lives are put on the line.
Shadows In Light follows would-be detective Maia Anemois as she is recruited to hunt down a prolific killer threatening the kingdom, and this is only the beginning of the fantastic action therein. I particularly enjoyed how imaginative and unique the plot was, setting itself apart from other books in the same genre without losing the core concepts. The decision to set the murder mystery in a fantasy world with mythical creatures paid off, adding intrigue and depth to the mystery itself. All of the characters felt well thought out and easy to invest in. I especially enjoyed the dynamic between Lord Kai and Maia. Authors P.M. Amaras and Paul Driggere do a brilliant job of developing flawed characters who are likable despite their mistakes. The world was crafted beautifully and was easy to envision, making you feel like you were exploring every facet alongside Maia. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Shadows In Light to fans of the fantasy or mystery genres and those looking for a well-written and character-driven story.
