Although, I have managed to read all of Elisa Paige’s books in an odd order, this has not detracted from any of the stories, although it may help if you choose to read the books from my reviews to read them in the following order: Stealing Time, Maelstrom, and Shadowplay. There are two more books to come which I am looking forward to as I feel that the characters in all of these books have grown through the series.
Maelstrom, introduces us to characters who also appear in Shadowplay, but focuses on Amalie, a light Fae and Nick a Vampire. They have known each other for centuries but Nick has had to continually search for Amalie as her history is so convoluted and dark that she has a case of amnesia which has made her forget her whole history. This is their quest to find each other and to hold onto each other.
The book also shows us how Nick and Amalie, know Roddie, Burke and Wen (all appear in Shadowplay where Roddie plays a larger part in the story). We get to learn more of the history between dark and light Fae and it sets us up for the larger story and ties in well with Stealing Time before it and Shadowplay after it. I am really looking forward to the next two books which should appear around the end of the year. As so many characters have appeared across the books I am looking forward to seeing what will happen next and who will survive the battle of light and dark Fae as well as the war between the Vampires and the breakaway slayers.
What could have been a simple story about lost love, becoming found love, is made more interesting by the mixed fortunes and histories of the characters whose lives are interwoven in these pages. There is a lot to like about this book; not only in the supernatural realms, but in how humanity reacts to the things it cannot always understand.
