Discussing Knight's Shade by Angela Henry

I really enjoyed the first book in Angel Henry's Xavier Knight series, and I was excited to read the next book in the series.

The story is set in a world where supernatural beings live side by side with mortals. In this world vampires, demons, workers of magic and shape shifters are as commonplace as firemen. A government organization called EA works to maintain some order.

Xavier Knight is an angel who has been cast out of heaven and his wings have been removed. The “official” cause of Xavier's expulsion was his romantic involvement with a mortal and how this distracted him from protecting the person he was assigned. His charge died under his watch. However, as the stories develop, we find that there is something else that caused Xavier loss.

The story opens with Xavier talking with a client about her need to find a way to get away from the debt shadow assigned to her. In this world, you can forfeit a lot more than money at a casino. Especially, when demons run the casino.

Xavier's conversation is interrupted by a woman who was referred to Xavier by his friend Father Andrew. This lady needs Xavier to find her little sister Lacy McHugh. This starts a page turner of a story.

I like this book because of the innovative world building and characters. Angela Henry builds a fascinating world with a wide variety of characters. However, she never lets it get out of control.
