Where Shadows Lie

The Bay City Series

Where Shadows Lie is an interesting and good urban fantasy. I enjoyed the tentative friendship between Jarvis, David, and Nick. Jarvis is a vampire and has an interesting history. He is caring to those who he is close to. David is a strong and brave werewolf who enjoys helping people. He is also a guy who sticks to his word. Nick is learning about life, but is still smart and caring. He is learning about his ability. I enjoyed seeing him learn and how these three interacted.

Where Shadows Lie has a good deal of action and it's written well, plus you get a couple of nice twists and turns. The enemies were interesting and good at being evil in their own ways. I also liked the supernatural parts and the overall plot.
