Shadow Born (Shadows of Salem #1) by Jasmine Walt and Rebecca Hamilton

Chicago Police Detective Brooke Chandler is keeping a secret… and if she’s not careful, it could get her killed. 

Brooke is no stranger to the supernatural. In Chicago, vampires are just as prevalent as drug lords, and infinitely more bloodthirsty. So when her partner and fiancé dies in a mysterious fire while chasing down a lead in Salem, she suspects something dark and otherworldly is at play. 

Blessed with the ability to see into the past by touching inanimate objects, Brooke transfers to the Salem PD, hoping her talent will help her get to the bottom of things. Between dodging assassination attempts and being stonewalled at every turn, the going is tough. Add in a mysterious fae club owner with secrets of his own and a personal grudge against her, and it becomes nearly impossible. 

If Brooke wants to play in the supernatural sandbox, she’s going to have to roll up her sleeves and get dirty. But how many people will have to die for Brooke to discover the truth about her fiance? And is she even ready to know? 

My review:
Shadow Born is a terrific new addition to the UF genre.  Brooke has secrets even she doesn’t know but they are coming out and she is going to have to deal. She is strong even in her confusion. Add in a gorgeous hunk of elf who claims to have had an affair with her in the past and she is going to have to be even more careful because no matter what she is a heart is a fragile thing. Shadow Born is full of twists and turns and I can’t wait for the next installment.
