Sinossi

Magic and crime. Agatha Christie meets J.R.R. Tolkien in “Shadow Path,” the first book in the new Portals series by author P.L. Blair.
An Ogre murdered with a rune-inscribed sword is just the beginning as Kat Morales, a very human detective on the Corpus Christi, Texas, police force, and her Elf partner Tevis McLeod follow a blood trail that leads to Pixies, necromancy and Magic of the Blackest kind ... to its climax in a stronghold Between worlds, where Tevis must duel spell for spell with a former lover who wants to see her old flame extinguished permanently.

5.0 su 5 stelle Portal to a fantastic adventure! 6 marzo 2013
Formato:Formato Kindle
Two cops in Corpus Christi are investigating a murder. Pretty routine – except one of the cops is an elf, and the murder victim is an ogre. It seems an ancient portal has opened and all the mythological creatures we read about as children are real, and they have crossed over into our world. Only some of them are a little different from what we pictured.

A mix of Greek mythology, fairy tales, folklore, and fantasy with a twist, Shadow Path takes us on an adventure to the ‘Otherside’ and the world in ‘Between’, where the elf detective must fight a former lover to save our world. Thrilling and suspenseful, Ms. Blair has used her genius imagination to present a fabulous story. She has a talent for dialog and description, and puts the reader into the scene with her characters. Storytelling at its best!

5.0 su 5 stelle Enlightening & fantastic read 29 aprile 2011
Di Su Halfwerk - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Kat Morales and her Elf partner, Tevis, are police detectives in Corpus Christi, Texas, assigned to solve the mystery of the dead ogre found stabbed with an enchanted sword. The world isn't the same since the portals opened between our world and the "Otherside" few years back. Seeing an elf with his pointy ears is a normal thing, maybe not accepted by all, but normal nonetheless. However, crimes now (sometimes) involve magic and a good portion of--what was called before the portals opened--the supernatural.
Although "Shadow Path" is book one in the fantasy adventure Portals Series by P.L. Blair, it is the third book I read in the series. Luckily, each book was written to stand alone, with enough hints to drive you back to read the other books but without missing the story you're reading at the time.
Shadow Path has some enlightening moments when mythology met P.L. Blair's imagination half way. An intriguing read, indeed. It was quite entertaining to research Greek mythology to find out where Blair's creativity sparked and changed things or even added to them. Reading how Arvandus and Gairth met Kat and Tevis was like meeting old friends after a long time; I had goosebumps all over my arms. I smiled.
Dragons, elves, pixies, and many other creatures I haven't heard of make an appearance in this book. If you are a teen or older, interested in fantasy and its fantastical creatures, myths, and whodunit mysteries, then Shadow Path is for you.

5.0 su 5 stelle Nicely written! 15 settembre 2013
Di Holly Barbo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
A well developed and written book. P.L. takes an older genre, "crime/police stories", and twists it into a unique tale with fantasy and magic. It is an enchanting blend! I've read other fantasy books that have an over abundance of beings from lore that the reader feels as if the author has stuffed as many as they could from the encyclopedia of magical creatures. I didn't get that from this author. The characters were included in the story line in a measured and fitting way. This was a refreshing story and I look forward to reading others in this series.

Think Lord Of The Rings meets Urban Fantasy. Too good to be true? Not for Ms. Blair! Definitely a great read for paranormal/urban fantasy lovers with a twist of FBI mystery,

5.0 su 5 stelle Great fantasy mystery adventure 2 maggio 2013
Di T. Jackson King - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Set in Corpus Christi, Texas, four years after Portals have opened between the Human world and Otherwhere, the home of elves, dwarves, ogres, shades, sorcerors and weird fantasy critters galore, P.L. Blair begins her murder mystery story with the smell of a dead ogre upsetting Detective Kat Morales. Morales is working with her Elf partner Tevis MacLeod to follow a trail of spells, swords, deaths, conspiracies and evil most foul to a final match-up between Tevis and his former Elf lover Coira, who has "gone bad" in a spectacular way. There are spells, wards, crystals, even a dragon or two, but what most struck me about this wonderful novel was the matter of fact, smooth storytelling that moves along in a dynamic way from puzzle to puzzle to helper to foe in a final battle n the Between dark realm that lies "in between" the Human and Supernatural worlds. Loved the back story of the various critters from Otherwhere, how some cope with renewed access to Earth while others don't, and how a seemingly simple murder mystery can become a "sitting on the edge of your chair" wonderful tale! Outstanding writing, fine characters and action a minute make this contemporary paranormal fantasy a winner!

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Fantasy Adventure 23 marzo 2013
Di Ch'kara SilverWolf - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
I loved this book. It had action, adventure and magik and flowed easily throughout. I love the relationship between Tevis (an elf) and Kat (a human). It is clear that their relationship is one of trust and genuine friendship. They are detectives dealing with unusual events connected to beings from the other side.

I love the concept of portals being opened so the two worlds merge. The bringing together of humans and other worldly beings, such as ogres, Djinn, elves etc. Tevis although working as a detective taps back into his abilities as a wizard to go `Between' to save the day.

I particularly loved the cats and the fact that they go `Between'. It certainly explains where my cats go when I can't find them.

This was a very easy book to read keeping me on the edge of my seat so to speak. I love the writing of PL Blair and look forward to reading more
