This review is from: Shadowplay (Micah Grey) (Kindle Edition)
A beautifully written fantasy story that captures your imagination on every page. Lam creates unforgettable characters.
I was so excited to meet Micah again in book two, having loved Pantomime, and Shadowplay was more than worth the wait. Micah is finding his footing, coming to terms with the perils of their world. With danger, intrigue and sleight of hand, Lam puts heart into every act of trickery and leaves you guessing. The central romance is incredibly important and lovingly written - and it develops slowly in a wonderful unfurling. Faithful to the events of book one, the duo are complex and slow on the uptake which makes it all the more delightful. The unwavering support is a joy to read after their suffering.
Although I missed the circus from book one, Shadowplay makes up for it with some dazzling new characters and expands on the world building with aplomb.
The fantastical elements are back in full force with attention grabbing visions and unexplained happenings. Liam's descriptions are exquisite and pull you completely into the scene.
Now I just have to wait with baited breath for book three..can't recommend this series highly enough. Five stars!
