Jackie Fire and Ice Book Reviews (blog)
*Book provided by author for a honest review.*

This is the second book in the Daughters of Darkness series, and my favorite by far. This book is about the second daughter of darkness Jacey Noble. Shadow cursed picks right up where Blood Slaves leaves off. If you have not read Blood Slaves, I recommend that you read it before reading Shadow Cursed because you will definitely be lost. N.L. Hoffman is an awesome writer, so I was so excited to read this book.


I really loved this book. N.L. Hoffman ta

When I read the book summary for "Shadow Cursed" I couldn't understand why the author would be introducing a new main character in the second book of the Daughters of Darkness series; but, when I began reading the book, I totally understood.

Jacey Nobles is a U.S. Marshal who has been pulled out of her vacation to assist with the Detroit P. D. on a murder case. Lord have mercy; but, this girl is the funniest but most exasperating character I've read in a long time. Just thinking about

U.S. Marshal, Jacey Noble is finally getting the vacation she has longed for, sitting in front of her TV with a stack of movies and a huge bowl of popcorn, paradise.

This investigation will not only ruin her vacation plans but will change her life in ways she could never have expected.

At the murder scene she is partnered with a detective, Trent Vinolva and it is i

Love Love Loved, Shadow Cursed by N.L.Hoffmann I was asked few months ago to review Blood Slaves and I loved that I was hooked and could not wait to meet the next daughter of darkness. Shadow Cursed is the second book in the Daughters Of Darkness Series. The book took the story to whole new place, it was more revealing showed me the reader the bigger picture and you saw new sides to our favourite characters from book one Blood Slaves.

Shadow Cursed (The Daughters of Darkness 2)

What a totally engrossing delightful romp! When Marshall Jacey Noble is called in off vacation to go to the scene of a murder and shows up wearing a white T-shirt with fuzzy pink handcuffs on it, I was hooked. Although I chuckled through Blood Slaves, the first book in the Daughters of Darkness series, I absolutely chortled with glee all the way through Shadow Cursed. When Jacey announces to Detective Trent Vinolva that they a

Shadow Cursed
By N.L. Hoffman
4.5 stars

This is the second book in the series and it does not disappoint! The story line flows with the characters from book one Blood Slave and adds a couple new ones. A hot ass sexy werewolf detective named Trent Vinolva and a smartass cocky and US Marshall named Jaecy Noble. They are teamed up together to solve a killing or should I say mutilation of an ex mobster. We find out that Blake and Jacey are actually half sisters, having the same father Lucifer. Now ther

*Warning: may contain spoilers*

This is book 2, but I feel like it could be independent of book 1, or they could be read in reverse and you wouldn't feel lost. Probably because Hoffmann has a great ability to create a world and just suck you right into it as if you're the main character, or at the very least, a ghost watching things happen.

Jacey Noble is a U.S. Marshal who just wants to enjoy her well deserved week long vacation. But dammit, that's just not going to happen, because murders keep

Shadow Cursed is book two in The Daughters of Darkness series. You will need to read book one Blood Slaves to understand book two completely.

Shadow Cursed is an excellent follow up to book one. It continues to introduce us to new characters and we also continue to get to know previous characters.

We meet U.S. Marshal Jacey Noble as our heroine. We find out Jacey is the daughter of Lucifer and sister to Blake. Just like her family,

Who doesn't like humor? The world is a sad place in need of hope, humor, hard core heroines, and passionate men. Why else do we escape into these novels? They grant our wishes and satiate our needs. N.L. Hoffman offers these qualities and so much more!

The anticipation surrounding the animosity between Trent and Jacey caused me to question whether or not even cared for them to become a couple.  As it turns out, I very much care! It only made this journey all the more "delightful."

This is the second book of The Daughters of Darkness series and picks up right after the first one, Blood Slaves. Now, it's not necessary to read the first book, but I still recommend it; that way you have a little back story.

In Shadow Cursed, we meet Jacey, a US Marshall. This story was everything that the first book was and much more. I found myself laughing out loud at all the hysterics. Lucifer aka Jacey's father was freakin hilarious. I also loved Jacey. There were times when you could tel

Marshal Jacey on a mission to find a rogue half-werewolf/half-vampire named Lucy. A trail of dead bodies linking to amatuer night at strip clubs, hot men(who will she chose?), shadow creepers(not to mention one sitting on her throne?!), and kicking butt with guns blazing or in this case shadows!

I just loved Hoffmann's first book, but I love this one even more!! The Noble sisters are so amazing. They are immature more of the time, but that just hides the fact of how deadly they truly are. They seem to have their father's sense of humor and you can't help but laugh while you're reading. It also has some amazing sexy scenes and the action is just non stop! I can't wait to meet the third sister and see what trouble they find themselves in next!

Loved it!

This is the second book in the series and it was awesome! Jayce is a U.S. Marshall that's out of the ordinary. She is sarcastic and totally insane when she wants to be. When she meets her sister Blake from the first book she learns a lot more then she bargained for. Join Blake, Eli, Jayce and Trent for a ride on the crazy express with a one-way ticket to hell.

Didn't read the first book but really enjoyed this one and it wasn't hard to figure out who was who Jacey had me laughing out loud from the start she was so sassy and bad ass I just loved her I wish she made Trent work a little harder before she gave him her heart and I like Evander as well so I'm torn I think she is one tough cookie lots of action and twists and turns 4 solid stars!!!

I have read this book before & I thought that I had reviewed it too but, apparently not as Amazon can't find it; anyway the book, the previous book & the next book in this series are absolutely amazing!

In this book we have Jacy Noble who thought that she was just a human until she went to a crime scene & became something else. & what she's starting to become scares all the other paranormals in her life; except for the couple who already knew what she is to become.

Jacey Noble is hilarious. I loved the banter and the way she talks with Detective Trent(werewolf and lover). I'll admit she is quirky and tends to speak out of line quite like her sister Blake but she is funnier. Apparently Jacey is a Shadow, she can control shadows and travel through shadows. Shadows are sort of known as the grim reapers and she so happens to be the queen as she has the markings of a raven tattoo on her.

There are lot of secrets and twists.

Shadow Cursed is a book you cannot miss. The story makes you keep turning the pages and want to know the whole story. Jacey is a US Marshal and she is a very good at what she does. She thinks she is normal, because she has no idea what she really is. Jacey is funny, likeable, and a very strong character. She is Lucifer’s daughter and a shadow, which makes for an awesome character. Lucifer is not the typical thought of how he would act in this book. He is funny and does some rather interesting th ...more

The second book in the Daughters of Darkness series was not as good as the first one, but it was still pretty good. Jacey just finds out she has a sister, and that there are paranormals out there, and she must help stop the bad guys before it is too late.

However, she also has some personal issues with her sister, and with the men who keep trying to get her attention. She just doesn't know who to trust and who is really on her side.

This book was pretty interesting, and I loved how Jacey kept to
