Vigilante of Shadows, Scarlet Rain – Book one, is a book unlike any other supernatural book I’ve read thus far. Readers are introduced to completely new types of demons. These are specific to elements, such as fire, water, earth, and air. However; in Vigilante of Shadows, we follow Aodhan, a shadow demon.
Aodhan is old, very old, like Viking old. For his age, he is HOT though, very bruiting with the hottest accent there could possibly be, Scottish. Miranda blended Aodhan’s old world speech very well with a more modern terminology. Nevertheless, don’t let his rugged good looks and hotter then sin accent fool you, he is the demon of Shadows, which means he can control the shadows and walk among them.
DC Arianwen Harris is on the case of a brutal murder. In fact, she thinks her murderer is the same one that has committed over 200 murders in another district, and was never caught. It has now become her job to find out what is going on and who is doing it—with the help of a few anonymous tips.
Vigilante of Shadows intertwines Aodhan and Arianens lives in unexpected ways. Read to see what happens when they meet and when she stands up for herself. The dynamics between these two characters is almost like vinegar and water, but we all know there are times when you need to use them together.
I will say this, the ending surprised me, and I did not expect that! It got to a point in the book where I literally could not put it down until I was done reading, and that was well past my bedtime.
