She will be the one to take his coldness,
She will unveil the Unseelie darkness and show them light.
She will unite what should never have broken.
The daughter of the moon will teach him love and the radiance of the sun.
Her inner light will purify the tainted ones,
And she will guide the fey by wisp-light.

There is no human in the club, only goblins and creatures called Sluagh who feed on human’s blood. She was trying to escape when The Sluagh Prince n

Ebony Olson’s OF SHADOW AND LIGHT is a powerful fantasy romance. I loved this story. Messina Doe discovers the world of dark Fey, and that she is not fully human. This story is suitable for adult readers.

I adored Messina. She has had a difficult life but is a fighter. She was hidden in the human world only to wind up back where her life started. While she was hidden with good intensions, it ultimately puts her at a disadvantage. Everyone who befriends her seems to want to protect her. Messina i

What an excellent read!
I had no notion about what this book was except one dark paranormal sexy story.
All those parts were there! What totally knocked me out and left me breathless was detailed world that was described, suspense that had me on edge and different species that were in it.
Author took me to that word and kept me there.
Ending was unexpected and made me cry and made me happy.
After all there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you for this story Ebony!

Thank you Netgalley and Eb&Muse Publications for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I want to start off by saying that when I first read the blurb on this book, it had promise. I love reading about the dark fey and their mischief. I have enjoyed books about Seelie/Unseelie for many years. I was so disappointed when this book did nothing for me. The promise of a good story and plot was there, but there was so much angst and pain for the main character, Mess, that I could not enj

This is a very dark book and not for everyone. I think it's important to note that this book has a lot of trigger warnings including physical and mental abuse and descriptions of acts between the heroine and her step father. This is not a light fluffy read.

Now that the warning is out of the way, I struggled with what I wanted to write for this review. On the one hand, I could not put this book down. I wanted to know what was going to happen at every turn. I enjoyed the writing style and the stor

I received a copy of Of Shadow and Light by Ebony Olson from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, this novel missed the mark for me even though the author DOES have a way with words. I felt that the plot should have been interesting given the story's summary, but the plot wasn't evenly paced and it was just confusing as all get out. Since the author never clarified or unraveled the plot threads fully for the reader, it was not enjoyable and I struggled to finish

Full review:

I had to read it again before writing the review even though I cannot say that I enjoyed reading it the first time. This isn't something I normally do, but the first time, I only focused only on the plot. Hard not to because of its dark and twisted nature. The second time gave more of an outsider's view on the entire thing since I already knew what was going to happen.

If you want to read a dark book, and I mean DARK book, this one should be on your TBR!

This story was very well-written because it immediately took me into a paranormal abyss. There are so many vivid details that you can't help but feel like you're being dragged down as a slave into this mysterious Fae society. 

I would say that there may be some triggers for emotional and possessive tendencies with the characters. There were a few parts that I thought was a little too much for me. But I have to t

Wow, I’ve had this sitting on my TBR pile at home since Feb, I can’t believe I waited so long to read it! I was so caught up with the characters, cheering the, on, feeling when they were hurt beyond belief and then elation at the HEA ending. Another great book from Ebony Olson

Dark, Twisted, well-written Dark Urban Fantasy

In short, this book is unique. I think my favourite part was that the author wasn’t afraid to break the mold on the one-fits-all species anatomy. There were potential triggers, expected as the back Story unfolded, but all in all, a thrilling ride through a darkly twisted world of the Unseelie Fae.
Sex: Yes. Very hot. Lots of build up, and by the time it happens, the consent is very much there.
Plot: Emotionally charged, well-developed, and written so y

The heroine (if we can call her that) is physically hurt (multiple times) by the hero (not sure that's the correct term for the bastard), but when he kisses her, she's all in. WTF? When she started describing her first sexual experience, which was with her evil step-father, and how she liked it, I got out. No thank you. ...more
