FAQ

Is Shadow Sight a stand alone novel?

While Shadow Sight can be read on its own, this is the first book in an ongoing urban fantasy series by E.J. Stevens.  Each book in this series is a whole story with a beginning and an ending.  However, it is recommended that you read the books in order, as each book references previous books.

How do I pronounce each uisge?

erkh ooshka

Future books in the Ivy Granger series will come with a pronunciation guide.  Please see below for a sneak peek:

I know this one is UF, but is there a possibility of romance here?

Poor Ivy Granger. Touching any person, or object, holds the potential threat of an involuntary vision. Not a helpful psychic gift for anyone looking for romance. This doesn't deter her best friend Jinx from trying to set her up with dates, but, for Ivy, the situation is simple--keep everyone at a distance, life is safer that way.

Of course, life, and her heart, do not always follow the rules.

Shadow Sight presents a spark of romance. Will Ivy be able to lower her emotional shields enough to follow her heart? You'll have to read Shadow Sight to find out.
