Shadow Fall is the third book in the Shadow series which incorporates Egyptian mythology.

Kira and her boyfriend, Khefar have finally found a stable relationship. But due to Kira’s powerful heritage, things are about to explode around them. Kira’s mentor, Balm, is the Lady of the Light but the world cannot be in balance only with the Light. When the Lady of Shadow, informs Balm her time with Kira is over and it is her turn to initiate Kira, Balm fears the worst. Kira’s powers could make her a destructive power for the Shadow. In a bid to help Kira, she gifts her with a chest that has clues about her heritage in hopes that it will help her fight against the Lady of Shadow who is already invading Kira’s dreams.

Those who have invested in this series will be glad to know that Kira finally has solid information about her mysterious mother and her relation to Balm. The relationship between Kira and Khefar is satisfying to read. The powerful (and studly) Khefar believes in Kira and is her touchstone. However, I did have one big problem with this story. Kira has asked Balm over and over about her mother and Balm had denied her. When Balm finally gives her the big clue, what does she do? She waits! She doesn’t open the chest immediately. It is not until page 141 that she finally gets the nerve to open it! Kira received the chest very early in the story and I was really frustrated with Kira for waiting so long. Also, the action only really begins after Kira opens the chest but before that point, it is very dull as I kept waiting for her to do something. So a third of the book had me frustrated. Except that section, this was a thrilling and exciting read as Kira must battle unbelievable powers to claim her birthright.
