Stalking Shadows -Review

Stalking ShadowsStalking Shadows by Tahlia Newland

Ripped from the safety of our world and thrust into a strange hidden realm on a quest to save her mother, Ariel aims to confront the Master Demon, but first she must defeat his bodyguard and reach the safe haven of Sheldra. She negotiates dangerous terrain and battles demons, spirits, rogue Magicians, giant water snakes and her own conflicting emotions.
Ariel wants to retain a clear focus on the task at hand so, despite Nick’s protests, she insists of a friends-only relationship with him. But the very thing she hoped would simplify her quest only complicates it with emotional, energetic and hormonal turmoil.
Despite Walnut’s continued guidance, Ariel finds herself constantly forced to rely on her own resources. Will she find the inner strength and wisdom she needs to defeat Amic and continue her journey?

Ariel's adventure (or quest really) continues as does her and Nick's attraction to each other continues to grow.

Nick and Ariel's relationship is awesome; talk about a powder keg. They're both such great characters, the book is all about them and I still wanted more.

No such thing as too much of a good thing and this is good.

I really enjoyed the idea of demons attacking you based on your emotions. That is a very interesting concept. And of course totally open for metaphoric interpretation.
Nothing like a demon trying to kill you to keep your emotions in check.

Like with the first it's so easy to get caught up in the story, you start you're in and there is no getting out until you finish.
