Title: The Company of Shadows

***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Ethan Shaw is a demon hunter, working for a mysterious organization, simply dubbed – The Company. His neighbor Cady accidentally comes between the hunter and his quarry, a demon, stalking women in San Francisco. This isn’t the scaly, fire and brimstone type demon, but the seductive, stalker type that can jump into any body, feeding off of fear or sexual energy. He can tap into your psyche to become the perfect man – and he’s set his sights on Cady.
Gutsy, vivacious (if a little pushy) heroine with more curiosity than sense sometimes – check. Sexy demon who can seduce with a single look – check. Secretive neighbor who pushes Cady away with one hand while pulling her into his mess with the other – check. Put together, creates a recipe for one thrilling read. I especially enjoyed Ethan’s brand of polite rejection and his sometimes bewildered responses when Cady insinuates herself into his life. Her ties to the demon were an interesting twist as well, and I can’t help but wonder what lies in store for them in the future.
The romance in this story played out slowly. The focus was on finding and banishing Ash the demon. I loved that Cady and Ethan didn’t fall into bed right after meeting each other. It was also interesting that book focused on one demon and the hunt for him.
The characters are well developed in this story. All though we don’t find out much about Ethan’s past and The company it actually worked for this book. Ms. Olsen also did a great job of keeping the story flowing smoothly.
A great paranormal story that doesn’t end in a cliffhanger but leaves the option of many more stories of Cady, Ethan and The Company.
