This slim book is divided into four parts under the headings of Earth and Below; Air and Spirit; Fire and War; and Water and Ice. The four headings acts as the structure within this book, around which 54 paranormal poems written by E.J. Stevens are presented.
Each poem found within this book recounts a vivid story which at times can be dark, haunting, disturbing and yet beautiful in its own individual way.
For lovers of paranormal writing and those who have not read anything from the paranormal genre before, this collection of poems is really worth obtaining and taking time to read.

Come along now Jiang Shi
It is time to be led
Back to your loving family
To the woman you were wed
You have traveled far from home
Far from your hearth and bed
We must return you to your wife
Whose eyes are rimmed with red
The priest rings the sacred bell
Rice and herbs have been spread
Your flesh is stiff and greenish-pale
Long white hair hangs from your head
We await you in silence
Our prayers have been said
Time to climb into this damp earth
For Jiang Shi you are dead.
The undead never sounded more beautiful and sad. The only complaint is that this collection is too short because once you enter the world of E.J. Stevens you don't want to leave.
Legs bound with cold iron
So you cannot flee
Wings wrapped in a glamour
For no human eyes to see
Stranded in the mortal realm
No magic to sustain your youth
A terrible price to pay
For seeking out the truth
Exiled from all Sidhe lands
Sent far from kith and kin
Judged by both Seelie courts
Guilty of our greatest sin
"Vampire's Thrall"---I enjoyed it so much I read it three times
"Love of a Shifter"---which made me laugh out loud although laughter was probably inappropriate as the poem is about death
"Elven Bride"---I loved the outstanding imagery
"Siren Song"---which had a unique interpretation on sirens
I would recommend From the Shadows to anyone who enjoys the paranormal genre, or anyone who is a fan of poetry. You don't have to be a lover of poetry to enjoy Stevens' work.
Just One Gripe:
Just like From the Shadows, I really can't think of anything I'd change about Shadows of Myth and Legend.
The Best Thing About This Book:
The imagery is outstanding!
