Shadow Sight by E.J. Stevens

Shadow Sight (Ivy Granger #1) by E.J. Stevens
Urban Fantasy/Paranormal
Rating: 3 Stars

Some things are best left unseen...
Ivy Granger's second sight is finally giving her life purpose. Ivy and her best friend Jinx may not be raking in the dough, but their psychic detective agency pays the bills--most of the time. Their only worry is the boredom of a slow day and the occasional crazy client--until a demon walks through their door.
Demons are never a good sign...
A demon attorney representing the water fae? Stranger things have happened. And things are about to get very, very strange as a bloodthirsty nightmare hunts the city of Harborsmouth.
There's blood in the water...
Kelpies have a reputation for eating humans. Unfortunately, Kelpies are the clients. When an Unseelie faerie this evil stalks the waterways of your city, you have to make hard choices.
The lesser of two evils...

My thoughts: Overall this was a fairly decent book. Did I love it? Not exactly. Did I hate it? Definitely not. The only real issue I had was with the writing itself. The story is great. I love the action and Ivy is a very interesting character. It would suck not being able to touch things or people because you could have a vision that makes people think you are crazy. At least she turned that crazy situation into a good decision. Helping people. That's a great way to use your gift.
The problem I had with this book was it was hard to get into without the action parts. So much time was spent on explaining the world Ivy lives in or every creature she passes or might possibly pass. It got super annoying. What happened to show, not tell?

Cover: 4/5
Writing: 3/5
Characters: 3/5

Overall score: 3/5

One more thing before I go. I will be giving a ebook and swag for this in the near future so keep watch!
