Monster hunting isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life. Freddie Westman, a reporter for a paranormal magazine, is one of the best in the business, but now it’s personal. His good friend, Jim Penderry, has disappeared, and the signs point to sinister forces from beyond the grave.
Sophie Penderry is more at home with her nose in a book, but insists on helping Westman find her missing brother. Even a loner like Westman needs an ally to watch his back. After all, these demons are not just the stuff of folklore and children’s nightmares. These dark monsters lurk in plain sight...
Victorian fun, filled with mystery, monsters and romance.

London Shadows was a fun, quick read that explored the supernatural goings on in the regency era. I love paranormal and regency romances, and this book encompassed both of those parameters so I knew it was something I wanted to take a chance on. I'm quite happy that I did.
The beginning starts out with a gripping fight scene between Freddie and a demon summoned by a mysterious wielder of black magic. A book is always engaging when it starts out with an obstacle for our MC to overcome. So by the time the fighting ended I was fully invested in the book, emotionally attached to the MC, and determined to solve the mystery of the missing young girls alongside Freddie and whoever else happened to be along for the ride.
