Shadow Silence by Yasmine Galenorn

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater, and I’m a spirit shaman. It’s my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people—and secrets—don’t always stay buried.

My best friend Peggin finds herself under a curse after she is almost taken by the Lady of the Lake, and the Unliving are determined to drag her back to the hungry waters. As Bryan—my guardian and mate—and I work to break the hex, we uncover a dark and violent mystery from the past. One the Hounds of Cú Chulainn will do anything to guard—even if they must summon a legion of the dead to destroy Whisper Hollow.

Yasmine Galenorn is another one of those authors that I follow that writes a pleasing story, but one that I wouldn’t place in the elite group of authors whose books are a must buy and read list, however her books aren’t ones I’d say no to when I can get them at good price. Ms. Galenorn has several book series that she has written, one that rather quite long called Otherworld which is pretty decent, but I don’t think it’s as good as her shorter series (well except her cozy mystery series which I really didn’t enjoy all that much). I’m hoping that the Whisper Hollow series will be a fairly short series as well.

Anyways, while I’d have to refer back to my GoodReads account, I’m pretty sure that the first book of the series got a perfect 5-star out of me. It was a fabulous book that introduced this new world. However, book 2 got only an average score of 3 stars due to the fact that I think there really should have been a bit more action, especially since it hinted at the possible action to come. To not get what was hinted was a disappointment and I’m only hoping book 3 will pour on the action.

In this book Kerris learns more about her spirit shaman heritage, I won’t explain why she’s not as well-versed. If you haven’t read the series, it’s much more fun to read and learn about it on your own. It’s actually rather nice that our main character is in the dark and learning stages because it allows us readers to learn with her. There were a handful of lovely tidbits of newness to learn in this one, so it sorta makes up for the being deprived of any action.

Anywho that’s all I have to really say about this book. I probably would have more to write, but I’ve already started a new book and it’s calling me. Word of advice to anyone who blogs about books, write your blog post before starting a new book as new book distractions will take away from your thought process, LOL.
