Walking Shadows by Narelle M Harris

Lissa Wilson's life hasn't been quite the same since people she cared about started getting themselves killed.

By vampires.

And Lissa learnt that the opposite of life is not always death. On the plus side, she made a new friend.

Gary Hooper may be the worst best-friend a librarian could have - and easily the worst vampire ever - but he has taught Lissa the real meaning of life.

Gary's worldview has also improved remarkably since meeting Lissa, but all that could be lost if she discovers what services he provides Melbourne's undead community.

Meanwhile, as their friendship brings him closer to the humanity he lost, it also puts them both in grave danger.

And there's a big chance that the evil stalking them could them both killed - in his case, for good this time.

Sally Edwards had this to say about CDP's latest book:

A solid 4.5 stars.

I got Walking Shadows at the launch the day before yesterday, started it yesterday evening, was laughing out loud by page three and read straight through to finish in the early hours of this morning.

"Walking Shadows" is an excellent sequel to "The Opposite of Life". Characters we know and love are back, along with those we know and will never love and a few significant new ones for added interest and plot development. All are well formed and believable within context.

The dialogue rings true for the characters and scenes and the writing is brilliant! Melbourne lives as a background character within the pages. As a local I appreciate that greatly. It feels right. If you don't know the city and if you ever visit, you'll find what you've read about as you walk around.

I've been told that Narrelle's new publisher, Clandestine Press, will have an ebook available shortly, so my overseas friends will be ab le to get this at an affordable price far sooner than was available for the excellent first book "The Opposite of Life".

This series offers a different take on the vampire mythos than has become standard fare of late. I can't recommend it enough to friends who love urban fantasy or who simply enjoy a good read. You don't have to start with "The Opposite of Life" but I recommend you do if you haven't read it yet.

"Walking Shadows was an excellent read and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for highly entertaining urban fantasy. I'm tempted to say it's a light read, but that's not really true as it tackles some serious issues albeit without taking itself to seriously. I loved the characters and I particularly recommend it to people looking for somewhat non-standard vampires in an Australian setting."
