Where to get it:

A seductive magic mirror lies hidden deep in a demon’s lair, with a simple warning: don’t stare at the glass…

Ice is a troubled fairy trying her best to survive in the squalid underworld of the Shadowfae.  When she spends a hot night with a demon lord, she discovers a powerful magic mirror in his lair — and pilfers it, knowing it’s the key to escaping her bleak life as a two-bit con artist.  But Ice soon discovers that the mirror's power comes with a price…madness, which is slowly overtaking her.

Indigo oozes darkness, danger and tempting sensuality.  He’s been sent to destroy Ice and bring the mirror back to its rightful owner; a mission that, if he fails, will cost him his life.  But when he meets Ice, he faces an even greater challenge: an insatiable sexual hunger that neither of them can deny, and dark passions that threaten to claim them both forever.  The trouble is, the longer he stays within the mirror’s reach, the greater its hold on his sanity—and the stronger his determination to save Ice…


Shadowglass is the second book in the Shadowfae Chronicles by Erica Hayes. Shadowglass is sexy, dark and gritty, set in the seedy Melbourne Shadowfae underworld. Ice is a light fingered fae who, after spending a steamy night with a demon lords, steal a magic mirror. What she doesn't know is that once in possession of the mirror, it whispers to your dark side and brings it to the surface. Once you look into the glass it sends you mad. Ice is rather shy, but tries to live life to the fullest with her two best friends. She has a major crush on a metalfae, who turns her into a simple minded, bumbling idiot. Indigo has been tasked with bringing the mirror back to its rightful owner, and he's to destroy whoever has it. Indigo is darkly sexy and dangerous. He has a tough choice to make when he finds out Ice is the one who holds the mirror. Shadowglass is darkly erotic, and lures you in with a promise of engaging characters and wildly entertaining storyline. I was ensnared from page one. Ice and Indigo sizzled off the pages, and I had trouble putting the book down. Not so great when one has to get back from a lunch break. This is leading up to be a truly great series and cannot wait to read the rest of the books. Erica Hayes has a dark style of writing that reminds me of Adrian Phoenix and early Laurell K. Hamilton. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend that you do. 4.5/5
