Seduction to sinners. A legacy in splinters. Beware, the myths of midwinter.
Quillan Sullivan lost his twin brother two decades ago, a tragedy he never fully experienced due to his unusual ability to see and talk to Riley when no one else can. He believes this “gift” is a fluke, until the haughty, vainglorious love of his life, Estella, returns after several years abroad, and rips his world apart.
Estella Broussard loathes Quillan. He’s the last person on Earth she’d ever bless with her presence. To her great dismay, he alone holds the key to achieving her deepest desire. She will do anything to reach her aims, no matter the warnings… no matter the cost to Quillan.
Nerys guides Finn and Aleksandr on their mission to find Anasofiya and bring her home. Finn accepts her help, on the condition she keep no secrets. She relays what she knows… all except the visions her old companion has sent her, regarding a terrifying menace to the Deschanels back home: A necromancer has emerged, and this ominous knowledge has fallen into the wrong hands.
The threads of fate weave the Deschanels and Sullivans down perilous paths, as a centuries-old warning emerges: Seduction to sinners. A legacy in splinters. Beware, the myths of midwinter.
By now those who follow my reviews are well aware of my gushing effusiveness over this series. I can honestly say I’ve never come across a such a unique blend of paranormal, occult, and fantasy, mixed with all manner of family drama and suspense. This series is one that may leave a character hanging in the balance, but doesn’t necessarily have to pick up where it left off in the next book, which under ordinary circumstances might leave readers feeling frustrated , but fans of C&C know to be patient and that good things come to those that wait…– Julie Whiteley, Clue Review.
Empire of Shadows is an amazing read. Five stars doesn’t even begin to do it justice. The characters are perfectly imperfect, the plot/storyline is genius and original, and the attention to detail from the author is second to none. The more I read of this book, the more I wanted to read. I have officially made waiting for the next book in this series my full time job!– Shelby Mead
I continue to be mesmerized by the massive scope of this series and how all the storylines are interwoven. This book feels like the author is putting things in place for the escalation to come – and I can’t wait to see what happens next.– Teri Polen, Books & Such
