5 Hardy Things about Kira Brady’s “Hearts of Darkness”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. Supernatural

Werewolves, wraiths, shapeshifters, oh my! As a fan of the supernatural, it was enjoyable to have a book with so many supernatural beings but best of all, “Hearts of Darkness” features a clan of dragon shifters. Have I mentioned that I love dragons?! If I was a shifter, I would totally be a dragon shifter.

2. The Bad Guys

While the dragon shifters were the central bad guys of the “Hearts of Darkness”, I appreciated that Kira Brady didn’t write them as all bad. The dragon shifters are power-hungry, greedy, and manipulative but also amusing, intriguing, and complex, as you would expect real dragons to be. Antagonists that have redeemable qualities are much more interesting and captivating.

3. Lore

Kira Brady’s Deadglass universe is unique. While featuring supernatural elements is not uncommon, Brady provided her own twists on things such as the dragon shifter clan being influenced by Viking culture and the Kivati shapeshifters being more influenced by Native American culture. And then you also have the background of these 2 races being in a war that is hidden from the humans and the ominous Gate.

4. Steamy

Things get hot and heavy between Kayla and Hart in “Hearts of Darkness.”

5. Hearts of Shadow

Thankfully Kira Brady’s Deadglass series continues in “Hearts of Shadow” because we all need to know what happens now that the Gate has been ripped open!
