Publisher's Summary

All it takes is a single brush with the supernatural to change a life forever.
Some choose the path of magic and shadow willingly. Others never see the hand of magic as it shapes their fortunes. They face the extraordinary with nothing but courage and wits to guide them.
Some mortals become trapped in the conflict between angels and demons and find themselves forever changed. For all too many, the shadows lead only to untimely ends. For some, however, the shadows offer seductive experiences that draw the newcomers further in....
Life in Shadows collects four stories set in the world of Good Intentions, where one encounter with sorcerers, demons, or a foul-mouthed servant of heaven is all it takes to turn the world upside down.
Warning: Life in Shadows contains explicit violence, extended explicit sex scenes, explicit karaoke, profanity, rampant nudity, assault, murder, breaking and entering, belligerent urban wildlife, premeditated sexual promiscuity, vehicular assault, reckless endangerment, attempted kidnapping, attempted robbery, attempted ritual demonic possession, blatant violation of state regulations of adult entertainment, punching, kicking, cutting, stabbing, shooting, hair pulling, name calling, slut shaming, cheap Halloween costumes, strippers, hipsters, poseurs, police, personal calls while on duty, arson, destruction of private property, lingerie, war criminals, break-up text messaging, lesbian demon seduction, accusations of Mary Suedom, poor workplace morale, premarital sex, nude calisthenics, immolation, false identification, ruthless exploitation of personal beauty, unsafe crowd control standards, vertigo, destruction of evidence, elitism, racism (don't worry, he dies), open relationships, workplace scapegoating, adult use of plumbing implements, fantasy depictions of witchcraft and paganism, at least one reincarnated ancient European warlord, and a girl-on-girl grenade fight. All characters are over the age of 18 except the aforementioned reincarnation of an ancient European warlord. That gets sketchy.

Absolute train wreck. Don't waste your money.

The first 2 books in this series were fantastic. This book was dreadful. In audio format, the director should be shot. In read format the editor should be shot.
I pray book 4 is better, but I'll be waiting for the reviews first before I waste money on this series again.

Great Expanded Universe

What made the experience of listening to Life in Shadows the most enjoyable?

Tess Irondale, her performance was great as always

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed all of the primary characters they each have something special

What about Tess Irondale’s performance did you like?

Everything, her range is great and she is able to give each character their own voice

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and no, because it is a selection of short stories it is easy to put down at the end of each chapter.

Any additional comments?

one minor issue Tess Irondale seems to have switched voices for Molly and Onyx. In the previous books Onyx had the more soothing seductive voice and Molly had a bit rougher voices in this book they seem to have switched. With that minor thing said it was a great addition to the universe I hope Mr. Kay will write additional books for these characters in the future.
