The Devil’s Shadow is the fourth book in T. Birmingham’s Wild Beasts paranormal romance series. Each book can be read as a standalone, as they follow two new main characters and their relationship and a new mystery to solve. The Devil’s Shadow follows Kieran Gimble and Ginny Zolanski and how they begin to slowly intertwine as fated mates. Their romance was very well written and mixed in nicely with all the paranormal elements of the story, that kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the lore of the book, and the myths and monsters it has created, and Birmingham’s take on these creatures of the night. I loved her descriptions and writing throughout the book. I especially enjoyed her unique take on ‘light versus dark’ trope, and that complex characters aren’t one or the other; that humans always struggle with what is good and what is evil, and always sit in this gray area of morality.
I was a little skeptical when I first bought this book, but was quickly swept up in the magic of the story and the beauty of the writing. I highly recommend this series, and look forward to the next one by T. Birmingham
