Flame & Shadow by AK Nevermore


About the Book: Envy, a half fae-half daemon, is looking at her death which will occur in less than thirty days. In her short life, she has not had many opportunities or been offered many chances so has lived on her wits and guile. Out of the blue, she is offered the option to survive—but in her view it comes at a high price. Along this journey, she encounters difficult people and situations—but in the end, survives. As to how well she survives is her decision.

Our Review:  This is not an easy story for the casual reader to get through. That said, devotees of the sci-fi/paranormal/urban fantasy genres will adore it. Because of her less than sterling upbringing, Envy has developed a kick-ass, nothing bothers me attitude—but early on it becomes clear this is a cover for a young person looking to belong, unconsciously begging for unconditional positive regard. Afterall, isn’t that what we all need? What we all deserve? Under it all, Flame & Shadow is a morality tale, teaching us to look under the surface which might be hiding someone in desperate need.

 On a scale of 1-5, Flame & Shadow merits a 4.
