Publisher's Summary

All it takes is a single brush with the supernatural to change a life forever.

Some choose the path of magic and shadow willingly. Others never see the hand of magic as it shapes their fortunes. They face the extraordinary with nothing but courage and wits to guide them.

Some mortals become trapped in the conflict between angels and demons and find themselves forever changed. For all too many, the shadows lead only to untimely ends. For some, however, the shadows offer seductive experiences that draw the newcomers further in....

Life in Shadows collects four stories set in the world of Good Intentions, where one encounter with sorcerers, demons, or a foul-mouthed servant of heaven is all it takes to turn the world upside down.

Warning: Life in Shadows contains explicit violence, extended explicit sex scenes, explicit karaoke, profanity, rampant nudity, assault, murder, breaking and entering, belligerent urban wildlife, premeditated sexual promiscuity, vehicular assault, reckless endangerment, attempted kidnapping, attempted robbery, attempted ritual demonic possession, blatant violation of state regulations of adult entertainment, punching, kicking, cutting, stabbing, shooting, hair pulling, name calling, slut shaming, cheap Halloween costumes, strippers, hipsters, poseurs, police, personal calls while on duty, arson, destruction of private property, lingerie, war criminals, break-up text messaging, lesbian demon seduction, accusations of Mary Suedom, poor workplace morale, premarital sex, nude calisthenics, immolation, false identification, ruthless exploitation of personal beauty, unsafe crowd control standards, vertigo, destruction of evidence, elitism, racism (don't worry, he dies), open relationships, workplace scapegoating, adult use of plumbing implements, fantasy depictions of witchcraft and paganism, at least one reincarnated ancient European warlord, and a girl-on-girl grenade fight. All characters are over the age of 18 except the aforementioned reincarnation of an ancient European warlord. That gets sketchy.

    "Tess made this one."

    Not as good as the others but worth the read.
    A new character and development of some others.

    "It's good to be back."

    Overall I loved the book, although Tess Irondale seems to hace switched Molly's and Onyx's voices. Everytime one of them talked I had to mentally say their name to keep track of who's who.

    Story
    "Wish it could have been longer."

    I tend to read books without reading to much about them first, so this time I was a little confused. I thought this book was going to be about the two witches and the book of shadows, and honesty I was looking forward to it. So I was somewhat disappointed when the story seemed to jump around to other characters and never went back to their story. It was good for me, not great like the other books in the series.

    "Love it"

    Another great performance by Tess Irondale. She really knows how to bring a story to life. This is a nice little interlude for the characters from good intentions and I hope to see more of the new characters in the next book. I really enjoyed the parts with Kevin an Shannon. I hope Kevin finds out about everything that's going on around him.

    Highly recommend this audio/book to anyone who has read the good intentions series.

    Story
    "Tid Bits of Awesome!"

    The only thing I wish they had done with the audio version would be to have established the chronology within the series timeline (which is at the front of the kindle version).

    The novellas overall were fantastic, each progressively better as the stories rolled on. I do hope "Uncle Kevin" turns into a bigger player on the series as it goes on. with all the foreshadowing and lead-ins I can only see this story getting more and more epic.

    Story
    "Great Expanded Universe"
    What made the experience of listening to Life in Shadows the most enjoyable?

    Tess Irondale, her performance was great as always


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all of the primary characters they each have something special


    What about Tess Irondale’s performance did you like?

    Everything, her range is great and she is able to give each character their own voice


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no, because it is a selection of short stories it is easy to put down at the end of each chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    one minor issue Tess Irondale seems to have switched voices for Molly and Onyx. In the previous books Onyx had the more soothing seductive voice and Molly had a bit rougher voices in this book they seem to have switched. With that minor thing said it was a great addition to the universe I hope Mr. Kay will write additional books for these characters in the future.

    Story
    "Not Bad, But Could Have Been Better"

    Back in 2011 author Elliott Kay released a novel called “Good Intentions.” While carrying out a dumb high school prank in a cemetery, Alex stumbles upon a cult in the middle of a ritual. The ritual involved two women against their will. Unknown to Alex at the time, one woman was a captured demon and the other was a captured angel. The ritual went all kinds of wrong and for his trouble, Alex, the demon and the angel found themselves bound to each other. There have been three novels in the series. All of them containing several other reoccurring supernatural, supporting characters. “Life In Shadows” is a small collection of stories featuring the supporting characters from the “Good Intentions” universe.

    If you already like author Elliott Kay’s work from the “Good Intentions” books, you will probably enjoy the majority of “Life In Shadows.” If you’ve never read Mr. Kay’s work, you should probably start with “Good Intentions.”

    "great story with a few split ends"

    I love the humor, mythology, and mild erotica in Elliott Kay stories. this story has a few storylines that just didn't resolve themselves in any satisfying way, so I'm taking one star off because I have to wait for the sequel to satisfy my curiosity.

    Story
    "Ok for the most part but"

    it started out ok for the most part, but it started to get really preachy. there was a lecture on the evils of slut shaming randomly wedged in the middle one of the storys: it feathers a group of Straumann complaining that all the Halloween costumes for women start out with the word sexy. the only narrative purpose this serves is to show off how "enlightened" the author is while stroking his ego. then later a character that we're supposed to"like" instantly disliked someone because she was wearing a sexy my little pony costume. so not only is it preachy its also hypocritical.
    ps
    at one point tess irondale read a word as a different word

    "should have stopped while ahead"
    What did you like best about Life in Shadows? What did you like least?

    The reader was great, the story.... well author should probably have waited till she had a whole story, this felt like notes and edits from the other books.
