Synopsis (Goodreads):
A darkness looms over humankind, lurks in mirrors, blurs boundaries—a twilight world ruled by powerful mage Houses...

It is bleeding into our world, bringing with it banshees, wraiths, fae from the twisting forests of Twilight. But Eleanor Russo’s problem is a very different kind of phenomenon. Her dark mirror image is a wild thing, willfully seducing the very man Ellie hoped could help her.

Dr. Cam Kalamos has devoted his career to exploring the boundaries between this world and Twilight. But nothing could prepare him for the mischief and mayhem of a soul split in two.

As Ellie and Cam explore their deepest desires and barely escape with their lives, there is only one certainty: Trusting in shadows is a dangerous game.
Thoughts on Shadow Burn: Fresh off their victory (of a sort) against Martin House, Cam and Ellie are now dealing with the repercussions of that. And it's not pretty. Mages are striking against humans. Shadow is bleeding over into the mortal world in ever greater waves. And while Ellie has found a balance with her shadow, Cam is now battling the darkness within him.

And bad, bad things are coming.

Finding balance is kinda a thing in these books. Ellie had to embrace her darker half and figure out how to live with both sides on display. Cam also has to figure that out. Now that he's fae-touched, his trips to the darker side of his self are getting harder and harder to come back from. Only his love for Ellie keeps him from succumbing completely and he worries he's going to go in so deep one time that he'll never find his way back. Only, with the bad things coming he might not have a choice but to submerse himself in Shadow.

I really, really liked the overall feel of the this series. It's dark and all kinds of crazy and oodles of fun. *thumbs up*
