Review: Counting Shadows

Counting Shadows
Olivia Rivers
Red Sparrow Press

From Goodreads: Faye’s soul-mate is everything she should hate—an Angel, an outcast, an enemy. Ashe is just one more imperfection in her life that somehow makes everything… perfect.

Until he’s murdered.

With the only person she loves ripped away, Faye sets out to avenge Ashe’s death. The task seems impossible, until she finds Lor—an Angel who looks nearly identical to Ashe’s killer. Arrogant and hot-headed, Lor is everything Ashe wasn’t. But Lor is connected to her soul-mate’s past, and Faye needs him to find the killer—even if Lor is potentially deadly.

But when Faye discovers that Ashe’s past isn’t as black and white as she thought, she faces an impossible choice: Give up the hunt, and risk the lives of others. Or continue pursuing Ashe’s murderer, and forfeit the lives of everyone in her family—including herself.
My Review:  I was given this book for my honest review by netgalley

     This was a quick and entertaining read. This book has something for all readers, vampires, angels and a princess. I enjoyed how the author took each type of creature and gave them their own unique roll to play in the story. It gave the story in my opinion more depth. This epic fantasy with wonderful world building grabbed me from the fist time we were introduced to Faye and Ash. I thought Faye was a good character. A princess that stood her ground with her family and an outcast to her people. Not what you usually read about. I found this book gripping and I can not wait for the series to continue. I need more and I need to know what happens next.
