Product description

Product Description

Once upon a time, Andrea Morgan was a normal, everyday girl… Let’s start again. Once upon a time, Andrea Morgan was a fairly normal girl with quite remarkable reflexes, who could teleport from shadow to shadow. Then her brother was killed and she became Twilight, the stealthy, black-clad nemesis of organised crime in New Millennium City. Then she met Cygnus, almost her exact opposite, but they worked well together: Cygnus in the light and Twilight in the darkness.

But there is something in the darkness which is stalking Andrea Morgan. It has been there, in the shadows, since mankind sat around the fires on the plains of Africa and wondered what was out there beyond the firelight. It wants Andrea dead, but sometimes when you die that’s just the start of your problems…

Let’s start again. Maybe there was never a time when Andrea Morgan was a normal girl…

The second book in the series goes even deeper into Niall's fantasy world of "Ultra"s with super powers. It really gets sillier the further one goes, and of course, the lesbian relationships come further to the fore as in all of this author's works so far. One can't but wonder whether the male author name is a non-de-plume for a lesbian writer!

5.0 out of 5 stars We asked for it, Teasdale delivered 26 May 2015
By Librovore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the Ultrahumans series, which is about an alternate reality where people develop super-human powers. While the first book was in essence an origin story for Cygnus, "Shadows" follows her partner, Twilight, to a greater degree, with Cygnus' story continuing to develop, but more in the background. The sex scenes are with Twilight rather than Cygnus, which highlights the point. This book can be read standalone, but references may not make much sense without that context.

The central villain in this story (there are a number) was one of the highlights. Teasdale does a great job of contrasting the characteristics of different villains (powerful but dumb, crazy, extremely intelligent, etc.), which is what we would expect in real life. A very nice touch was having villains manipulating other villains--not something you find in most novels, where one bad guy takes the stage and all others conveniently go on vacation.

As someone who is critical of poor proofing/editing in general, I was very pleased with how good this aspect of the book was. I've always liked Teasdale's writing style, and it's properly on display here: interesting scene transitions, foreshadowing (no pun intended), overlapping events, and hints of personality traits that are tantalizing as possibilities in future stories.

There's no cliff-hanger ending, but a discovery sets up (I presume) the next novel very nicely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best series to date. 15 May 2016
By Sulaco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am having a real hard time with this series, don’t get me wrong I have liked and purchased I think all of the books Niall has done in the other series and enjoyed them. This one though….as in most sci fi or any fiction book you have to be able to leash/suspend your disbelief in order to get into the story. This Ultra Human world does not allow me to do that successfully, in fact having book 2 in this series (bought one and two in a two for one deal) about half way through I gave up. The author plops down humans with superpowers as a matter of routine in this universe, OK, why (?) and where do the powers come from? The secrete may be revealed latter but the two things that just boinked it for me is the heroine of the series just walking down the street and being hit by….something and becoming a superhero with forever expanding powers that always just appear as she needs them. No suspense; trapped in a burning building basement about to collapse? No problem she manifests superhuman strength. About to get killed? Make up the superpower you need and save yourself. Oh, and she was an ugly duckling that becomes drop dead gorgeous as a side effect of the transformation. The characters are really one dimensional and the dialog is superficial, “young adult” level at best in terms of human interaction and painfully predicable. Don’t think I will be buying the third of the series. Why not another book in the Thaumatology universes or ya (!) the Aneka Jansen universe? This one just an’t working at least for me. 2.5 stars really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid sequel with toned down sex. 17 June 2015
By Mvargus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow, Niall toned the sex down. And not just a little. He really pulled back from the sex even though the main character here is always described as almost a walking excuse for men to fantasize. This really helped the story as Niall actually appears to worry about plot much more than normal.

The plot picks up about where Ugly (book 1) left off and does a decent job expanding on the characters and their relationships. There are a few too many shortcuts taken in the overall development of supporting characters, but otherwise this is a solid tale. I'd say it falls behind the better superhero series, but its a step up from others. Solid.
5.0 out of 5 stars Did not expect that twist. Then another. 4 June 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read most all of Nialls books and I look forward to more. Without spoilers, this one did a dang good job on a lot of fronts. I'll be re-reading the first book next time before I start the the next in series to make sure I have the "where/what happened before" right in my head.

Perhaps could have put a few pages into the book with that info but its certainly not a deal breaker.

This is a fun read good and light hearted at times. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Second in series 25 May 2015
By E.P. McLean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Much darker then her usual and more violent, but not graphical so. This is mostly Twilight's book with the story line revolving around her and the growth of her powers. Introduces a female serial killer and a secret society of shadow. The sex is significantly dialed back. Reduced to talk and mostly planning. Overall fast paced and strong plot. Nice cliff hanger at end.
