Publisher's Summary

Brooke is no stranger to the supernatural. In Chicago, vampires are just as prevalent as drug lords, and infinitely more bloodthirsty. So when her partner and fiancé dies in a mysterious fire while chasing down a lead in Salem, she suspects something dark and otherworldly is at play. Blessed with the ability to see into the past by touching inanimate objects, Brooke transfers to the Salem PD, hoping her talent will help her get to the bottom of things. Between dodging assassination attempts and being stonewalled at every turn, the going is tough. Add in a mysterious fae club owner with secrets of his own and a personal grudge against her, and it becomes nearly impossible. If Brooke wants to play in the supernatural sandbox, she's going to have to roll up her sleeves and get dirty. But how many people will have to die for Brooke to discover the truth about her fiancé? And is she even ready to know?

Can't Wait For The Next One

This is an outstanding debut for a new series. Jasmine Walt is quickly becoming a must read author for me. In the Shadow of Salem Series, we are introduced to Brooke Chandler. Brooke is a confident and intelligent policewoman who is looking to avenge her dead fiance. On her journey of revenge, she meets Maddock. A Fae who can help her find out the truth. This book has it all- action, sexual tension, humor and witty dialogue. I can't wait for the next one. Angela Dawe did a great job as narrator. Her voice made me think of a voice over in a film noir movie. She has the perfect voice to bring this book to life. I hope she reads the next three books as well.

Book 1

Decent start to a new series involving the supernatural world. Brooke, a Chicago homicide detective, temporarily joins the Salem , Massachusetts PD to try to discover what has happened to her fiancé. Several unexpected twists and turns occur leading Brooke to a truth that just maybe to hard to bear. Old family truths and a possible romantic past come to light as well. Though there was plenty of action the story missed the mark that would encourage me to continue on with the series. Brooke at times seemed a bit dense and too whinny for a female heroine. I probably wouldn't read the next book in the series if I hadn't already purchased the next book.

Wanted to love it

Started off good, loved the characters. The authors did a great job creating interesting, likable protagonists. Angela Dawn was an amazing narrator. She did a great job with male voices and Scottish accent. I'm amazed that she did so with dialogue that was extremely trite at times. Narrator brilliant, story just OK.

Fun series intro - updated takes on characters

Really fun read. Get the audiobook! The narrator does an excellent job with different accents and character portrayals. We see some ‘familiar’ character types in this story, but they have some fresh takes and nuances that are engaging. I look forward to the next installment. (Note to authors: keep this narrator she’s great!)

Too many hormones

Nice world building, liked the interactions between humans, witches, fey, vamps, etc... but all the yearnings between the characters got in the way of the story.

great start and story!

The story starts out like a crime/cop mystery and then weaves in the paranormal aspect well.
I was involved and invested with the characters and the story in equal parts. I'm excited to read the next book!

Fascinating!

witches, urban-fantasy, fae, murder-investigation, law-enforcement, magic

Lots of action and suspense, magical beings and their activities, plot twists and intriguing characters. I am not sure what I expected, but this was a pretty good thrill ride. I only became acquainted with the fae and the Seeley courts several years ago, so I am often surprised at how lore from one author is reflected by another. Regardless, I liked the story and Brook very much and will look for more.
I love listening to Angela Dawe when she gives an audio performance.

AWESOME.

I am so ... glad I found this author. This new series is fantastic. Lots of action and the dialogue is good. I like the protagonist, Brooke Chandler. Kept in the dark about her heritage, she has been muddling around trying to find out the truth. She is strong and brave, I also find the lord face, Lord Maddock Tremaine a very interesting character. Most enjoyable. Angela Dawe is a great narrator/performer. She brought the characters to life and male voices were perfect. Please don't change the narrator.
