Some things are best left unseen...
Welcome to Harborsmouth, where monsters walk the streets unseen by humans...except those with second sight, like Ivy Granger.
Ivy Granger's second sight is finally giving her life purpose. Ivy and her best friend Jinx may not be raking in the dough, but their psychic detective agency pays the bills - most of the time. Their only worry is the boredom of a slow day and the occasional crazy client - until a demon walks through their door. Demons are never a good sign...
A demon attorney representing the water fae? Stranger things have happened. And things are about to get very, very strange as a bloodthirsty nightmare hunts the city of Harborsmouth.
There's blood in the water...kelpies have a reputation for eating humans. Unfortunately, kelpies are the clients. When an Unseelie faerie this evil stalks the waterways of your city, you have to make hard choices.
The lesser of two evils...

"I enjoyed it even more than my beloved Hollows series by Kim Harrison." (The Keeper Shelf)
"Readers will love E.J.'s signature humorous writing, her kick-butt protagonist, and one heck of an unpredictable story." (A Cupcake and a Latte)
"I absolutely love the creepies in this book. If you like strange creatures and quirky-oddball descriptions this is for you." (Dizzy Izzy Book Reviews)
I'm a wife, mother to 4 wonderful boys and a total bookaholic :) I read mainly anything Paranormal, Fantasy, Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic.
Yes. This is such an enjoyable read and a great introduction to the Ivy Granger series.
The plot was sufficiently fast paced to keep me hooked and it really picked up the pace towards the end.
Yes. She is such an awesome Ivy and knows how to grab the readers.
Ivy is so snarky that it's impossible not to snicker during the book, so yes, I had a good few laugh out loud moments.
Shadow sight introduces us to the snarky and kick ass heroine Ivy Granger. When she touches an object she can "read" that object. She doesn't know why or how she has the gift but she learns to deal with it. She opens her own Detective Agency and has the name to investigate the weird.
Ivy is such an awesome character and I loved her wit and sass. I can't wait to read more in this awesome world and look forward to the next book.
Yes. Where I felt the story was slower moving as we are being introduced to a new world, the audio didn't stop so I kept moving forward with the story rather than stopping.
Things picked up and we learned a few things about Ivy. All the characters fall into a place with Ivy.
Young, solid sounding,
This is a vast world created. There are creatures from Brownies, Demons, Trolls, and Witches (or hunters) to much more. Vampires, Kelpie, Selkie, and rare fey of the ocean and land.
Totally addicted! It's possible I might need Audible rehab.
I feel like I'm being read a story by a well intentioned volunteer at the children's section of the library. I'm always on board for a psychic detective and really wanted to like this one but I'm not sure I'm going to make it to the end. Outside of some verbiage this story seems to be more appropriate for middle schoolers.
I gave up on this. After multiple chapters nothing happened. The author spent time developing interesting characters but nothing on plot. Sime people might ind this charming but After the first 5 chapters I stopped as there was just no reason to continue. There is no drama, no threat, nothing.
I would probably not listen to this author again.
Goodness no. Traci Odon made all the secondary female characters sound like they were either bimbos or ten years old.
I loved the story line, it was funny and entertaining.
going to download the next installment to see how the story line progresses
"One fae book too many"
I LIVE for urban fantasy but this book was meh compared to similar books that are available & truly poor compared to someone like Seanan McGuire.
