Shadow Play – Jill Ramsower

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger—if that’s the case, I better be badass by the time this is over.

After two years at a dead-end job, Rebecca Peterson finally walks away from everything she knows to follow her dreams in Ireland. Instead of dreams, the dreary streets of Belfast rekindle her terrifying nightmares, and this time they aren’t confined to her imagination. Twisted and vicious, Faeries are being unleashed on Earth to prey upon humans, who are unaware of the vile creatures walking among them. Becca must stay alive long enough to learn why she can see what others can’t, and even more importantly, discover how to keep the Fae from destroying life on Earth.

Delving into the underbelly of the city, Becca discovers that she is not entirely alone in her abilities; however, centuries of secrecy makes gathering information a challenge. When Becca crosses paths with two mysterious strangers, her life is only complicated further. The gorgeous but brooding Lochlan demands complete honesty but refuses to provide any answers of his own. On the other hand, Ronan is enigmatic and charming, and with his sights set on making Becca his, he offers more help than most. But Becca quickly learns that trusting others is difficult when you have secrets of your own. Sometimes, the enemy is within…

My review

The title of the book is a bit low key, but the story is definitely not! This fast paced urban fantasy story of fae, mythology and a kick ass girl Rebecca is awesome.
She lands her dreamjob in Ireland working in a museum after working as a waitress for two years. After arriving in Ireland, she starts seeing strange creatures and some strange accidents are happening. When she starts thinking she is going crazy a handsome stranger comes to her rescue. Ronan is kind, hot and a bit strange. Because soon Rebecca finds out that there is more to Ireland than she thinks. Fae running around, myths that are not really myths and a boss who is part of a secret society…
And of course: one hot and brooding fae: Lochlan.
After part one, I was really looking forward to part two, to see how this story will end. You definitely want to read both parts in order to get the story straight. But this is certainly no hardship! Five out of five stars from me. And a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
