SacrificeThoughts on Shadow Fall: I really REALLY like the crazy world of Shadow. I'm mean, it's messed up and dangerous, but the people who rally to fight against it kinda rock. At this point in the story, it feels like an uphill battle, too. For every wraith they cut down, there are others ready to join their ranks. Which is bad. Very bad.
Custo Santovari accepted pain, blood, even death, to save his best friend. But a man with all his sins just isn't cut out to be an angel.
One moment he's fleeing Heaven; the next, he's waking up stark naked in Manhattan. In the middle of a war. Called there by a woman who's desperately afraid of the dark.
It gathers around Annabella as she performs, filled with fantastic images of another world, bringing both a golden hero and a nightmare lover.
He pursues her relentlessly, twisting her desires even as she gives herself to the man she loves. Because each of us has a wild side, and Annabella is about to unleash the beast.
BUT... there are also allies starting to pop up. Here and there. Which kinda feels like another uphill battle since those allies are initially reluctant.
But we're here to talk about Custo and Annabella's story. Custo doesn't see himself in a very flattering light because of the things he's done in his past, but he's loyal. Very loyal. To the point of dying to save Adam and Talia. His attraction to Annabella in the middle of all the crazy he finds himself in is distracting. Sexy, too. The shadow wolf after Annabella makes acting on that attraction a little difficult. As shadow wolves often do.
(Don't worry, he manages to take care of Annabella. *waggles eyebrows*)
For her part, Annabella is shoved face first into the Shadow war when her talent manifests. She copes with it admirably, all things considered. I'm sure Custo had nothing to do with her coping. SURE OF IT.
There's some awesome setup for book 3 (and, honestly, it's been so long since I read book 1, I almost feel like I should go back in and bone up on the start of the crazy) and I am CURIOUS how all this will play out. *slow thumbs up*
