Fresh Fiction Review

Falling Light
Thea Harrison

Reviewed by Annetta Sweetko

Romance Paranormal | Fantasy Urban

Thousands of years ago there were eight. The one called the Deceiver came to destroy the world, the other seven followed to stop him. Reincarnated over and over again they carry on in the battle for the world. FALLING LIGHT continues where Rising Shadows left off, with Mary and Michael reunited. Having fought off the Deceiver again, they race to safety and hopefully to get help, before police forces catch up with them. The Deceiver has left destruction and death with fingers pointing directly at Mary and Michael.

Mary isn't thrilled with this plan, because she is not sure she is willing to trust a woman who by her own admission will do anything to finish the Deceiver -- even if it means killing Michael and Mary to try again in another life. Michael must decide where he really stands. Is it with Mary, in this life, or as the alien bent only on destroying the Deceiver no matter how many lives it takes?

FALLING LIGHT is the second of the Game of Shadows series. I found this book a little on the dark side with less romance than the previous books I have read by author Thea Harrison. It is basically an urban fantasy with reincarnated aliens fighting evil. There is a lot of reminiscing of their past "lives" and planning for the upcoming battle which I found interesting. I really love the way Ms. Harrison writes, she has you feeling as if you are right there in the middle of the story. That said it breaks my heart to admit that I did not get the same vibe from this series that I get from her Elder Races series. If you are looking for a darker, more intense urban fantasy written by a very good author, then FALLING LIGHT is a book you will want to pick up.

SUMMARY

Having finally reunited, and fought off the Deceiver for now, Mary and Michael race up the Michigan peninsula to meet Astra before police forces catch up with them. But the closer they get, the less Mary is willing to trust a woman who by her own admission will do anything to finish the Deceiver—even if it means killing Michael and Mary to try again in another life. As they face their final battle, Michael\'s loyalties are tested, making him vulnerable just when Mary needs him most.
