Publisher's Write-Up

Jared Bruin doesn’t know who he is. He remembers nothing of his early childhood before the age of seven when he was abandoned in a park in St. Louis, left in an unfamiliar world that terrified him. He knows only that he is driven to learn everything he can about swordplay and sixteenth-century combat.

Almost twenty years later, as he is battling a heroin addiction, suicidal tendencies and a violent affliction he doesn't understand, he is hired to teach swordplay to an enigmatic woman with secrets of her own, who somehow provides a link to his past.

Then a missing journal arrives that provides many answers to Jared’s past, and in it another world is revealed, one of a Goddess, prophecies, elves, a devastating love triangle, and a war in desperate need of a hero.

have just read Shadow Fox and I have to say it is the best read I have had for many many years. It gripped me from the moment I started to read. The author has created believable characters who you just fall in love with from the start. I found myself caring deeply for Jared the main character even when he seems to be his own worst enemy. Also the author has done a great job picking up on the differing aspect of both US and UK perceptions. Then to throws us into a completely new world.

The genres of Paranormal Fiction and Fantasy are blended so well that they just flow seamlessly together. This is the first in a series and I for one cannot wait until the next instalment finds its way to my Kindle.

I would recommend this book if you are a fan of the likes of Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Janny Wurts or Kelly Armstrong, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Kimm Harris. I believe that Ashley Barnard will be one of the crop of new authors to make an impact on the Paranormal Romance scene. At the moment this book is only available as an ebook in the UK, although it will be released as a paperback sometime in 2011.
