    1. HBO would love this series. Profanity, violence, sex, drugs, often all at once, but Shadowfae isn't generic in any category. Erica Hayes' fae are very elf and very punk, with human vices. Hayes completely reinvents the fae, vampires, and demons in a very human likeness so that they fit seamlessly into Melbourne's seedy side, where fae with claws and pretty, delicate wings also sell the most potent product and vampire mobsters war for territory. Hayes' prose is very well suited to this atmosphere [...]


    2. I am a sucker for books featuring Fae characters and I was encouraged by the title to pick this one up at my public library. I should have read the blurb. I should have known better. I should have twigged that the main character is a succubus and I should just have set the book down and walked away.There are a few interesting ideas in this novel, but the setting is just too dark for me. The author is trying too hard to be gritty and noir. With Jade, a succubus, as the main character and with the [...]


    3. Peppered with Fae, demons and vampires, with Shadowfae sets the stage for a dark romantic new urban fantasy series Both leading lady succubus Jade and leading man incubus Rajah are enslaved to a demon and both long for the end of their servitude, they are forced to seduce and sometimes kill unable to resist the compulsion of their master's orders. But Rajah has discovered the way to win his freedom, a secret he shares with Jade - to be free, four special souls must be harvested, the only catch i [...]


    4. This book was not at all what i expected. I think over all it went beyond what i thought it was going to be, but it was quite the downer on the way. Really not a book to bring a smile to your face. It is described as dark, and there is no questioning it.For a book about a succubus and and incubus i obviously expect a healthy dose of sex. This book is actually about 90 % sex and not once single scene of it is pleasant. Most of it is rape. There is blood rape, mental rape, and the blatant physical [...]


    5. Jade is a succubus enslaved to a demon, Kane. Rajahni is an incubus enslaved to the same demon. He learns of a way to break the bond by stealing four souls that match some latin? words on his bracelet or bond. They steal the souls when the body reaches it's climax. Shares this info with Jade since he is in deep puppy love with her. (view spoiler)[Turns out they were both sold to the demon by the same man, Luna. That's a problem since they both have to drink the soul of the person who got them th [...]


    6. The goals of breaking shackles and finding freedom drive this colourful and disgusting vision of Melbourne, where fae and vampires live among humans.Soul-sucking succubus Jade goes to steal a soul - only someone else has beat her to it. Incubus Rajah is also seeking emancipation, and the two need four particular souls each to score their freedom. But chasing the same soul, they can't both win, and when it comes to love, is it right to save yourself by damning your loved one?I love my Melbourne a [...]


    7. The idea for the plot was great, a succubus and incubus trying to free themselves of their "slavery" from the demon Kane but it fell short for me. There was sex on almost every page. If it wasn't the act itself it was of the characters fantasizing about it. I know that there will be sex from a book with a succubus as the main character but it was too much. I felt that the storyline was sacrificed in order to add more sexual content. Ms. Hayes did create an interesting world but it was also dirty [...]


    8. Jade was greedy as a human, craving for power, and got what she was looking for in a crazy twisted kind of way. She's a succubus. She got the power to enthrall men and suck their soul out of their body.It wasn't what she was looking for, and after 140 years, she is blazée and depressed until she meets Rajah.Rajah, the incubus. She despise him and yet is drawn to him in a way she can't explain.She might not know yet, but he holds the key to her freedom. Will she be able to break her shackles?Fir [...]


    9. Here is what says about Shadowfae:In a world hidden behind shadowy fairy glamour, thieving spirits rob people blind, beautiful banshees mesmerise people with their song, big green trolls kick heads at nightclubs and sadistic vampire Mafiosi rule the streets. Jade, a succubus, is sick of a life spent seducing gangsters and murderers and simpering as a trophy girl for hell's minions. Her quest for freedom brings her face-to-face with Rajah - formidable adversary and irresistible lover. And when J [...]


    10. Not 100% sure how I feel about this one. I finished it. So that's a plus. I have been abandoning a lot of books lately. The good: I liked the general "plot" - (from ) "Enslaved by a demon lord, Jade is forced to spend her nights seducing vampire gangsters and shapeshifting thugs. After two hundred years as a succubus, she burns for freedom and longs to escape her brutal life as a trophy girl for hell's minions. Then she meets Rajah, an incubus who touches her heart and intoxicates her senses. Ra [...]


    11. This is a very dark tale set in a seedy, drug infested Melbourne where mobster-like demons and vampires are power hungry and will stop at nothing to get what they want, the fae are peddling psychedelic drugs and succubus just want to have sexwait, no, that's not right. The succubus, Jade is a somewhat innocent soul-stealer and is in love with Raj, an incubus and both are in thrall with Kane, a demon who is in love with Jade but he pimps her out for the souls he desires. Although I did enjoy the [...]


    12. Erica's Melbourne isn't one any of us will ever see, and I think that's probably a good thing. The fae, demons, and vamps in this world aren't romantic and sweet. They're cruel, insatiable, and waiting to screw you over the first chance they get. They're all dangerous predators.Jade is a succubus who belongs to a demon called Kane. She seduces men and steals their souls via some very gruesome ways. Then she vomits the souls into soultraps, but when she finds out that there's a way to break free, [...]


    13. Dark, seductive and erotic are the perfect words to describe, Shadowfae, the debut release from Erica Hayes. Jade is a one-hundred forty year old succubus who is indentured to the demon lord Kane for a thousand years. She is forced to seduce and suck out the soul of the current victim she is with. She uses sex as a weapon, known as the rapture. Jade hates her immortal life but has no choice to do what Kane orders her to do. Kane loves Jade and wants her to love him, but because of his evil and s [...]


    14. From Fantasticfiction:Imagine a secret world veiled in fairy glamour and brimming with unearthly delights. A city swarming with half-mad fairies, where thieving spriggans rob you blind, beautiful banshees mesmerize you with their song, and big green trolls bust heads at nightclubs. And once you're in, there's no escape.Enslaved by a demon lord, Jade is forced to spend her nights seducing vampire gangsters and shapeshifting thugs.

    15. Ever since I read the prequel Hellcursed a few months back, Shadowfae has been a book I've been looking forward to reading. I found Shadowfae to be a very intense, dark, erotic story that was at times disturbing, in a fascinating way. With Jade being a succubus, I was expecting a sensually charged read, which I did get but I also got a look at the unsavory, darker side of being a succubus enthralled to a demon lord's every command. This gave Shadowfae a very gritty and raw edge.As far as the cha [...]


    16. In Shadowfae, Hayes brings to life a sensory feast of glittering and dangerous creatures, an urban fantasy realm existing side by side with humans in the magnificent shadow of Melbourne. In the luminous underbelly of that cosmopolitan city breathes a current of life filled with incubi, demon lords, banshees, vampire syndicates, spriggans, fairies.e Shadowfae. The lives of two entities take center stage in Hayes’ dark treat: Jade a succubus, and Rajah, and incubus form an unlikely partnership t [...]


    17. This book started off really well and, to be perfectly honest, ended well. But the more I read of it, the lower I wanted to rate it. Bear with me, I know I'm not making sense.The writing is exquisite. Hayes has a way with words, with just a few of them she paints a vivid scene. Look at this:"They’d whispered in dark ocean grottoes with demons" That simple, but can't you just picture it? Isn't it lovely? The whole book is like this, and her writing style produced some very explicit, yet tastefu [...]


    18. Four books. In my whole life I've only never finished four books.This is one of them.The summary is deceiving. It paints a gritty world full of mythical creatures living side-by-side with mortal humans. A succubus yearning to break free of her thrall to a demon overlord. Sounds interesting, right?What you get is sex-sex-sex-drugs-faeries exploding-sex-vomiting-sex-sex-more vomiting-sex-drugs-alcohol-sex-more drugs and vomiting-blood-vomiting blood-sex-death-more sex-sex You get my drift.There w [...]


    19. Very dark with a kind of psychotic happy ever after. The next book doesn't seem to be about the same characters, so I'll put it on my eventual read list. Jade and Rajah are enslaved succubus/incubus by a demon lord who just wants to be loved. That's the part I didn't get, why would he be so fixated with Jade? There's a lot of soul sucking going on with throwing up afterward. Do not read this book if you are eating or have just ate.


    20. **Couldn't finishShadowfae started out having potential to be a good read. However, it failed. I like a bit of sexiness in the books I read, but this was taken way overboard, to the point of ridiculousness. An easy comparison to this book is Ramen noodles all substance, no nutrition.


    21. Fairies on smack.It's brilliantly written but a tough read because the heroine is trapped in such a miserable world.


    22. Honestly, don't quite remember it because I read it so long ago but I did just get really excited that there are other books in the series


    23. Quite possibly one of the richest prose styles I have ever read. Well worth a read for anyone looking for urban fantasy with sexy overtures.


    24. If you were someone who really wanted to write about sex, then you might imagine a world in which sex is less of a taboo. A world in which creatures exist that need sex on a frequent basis for sustenance, perhaps. Hello 'Shadowfae'.Filled with sex, sex and more sex, there is actually also a story somewhere in there. It can be found in between the abundance of descriptions of fluids (ick), smells (ew) and sensations (okaaaay). And really, there is a lot. And it's detailed, and graphic. In fact th [...]


    25. Meh I preferred Kane Better then Rajahni seth (´・ω・`) And the story developement just didn't take on me.



    26. Review provided by Black Lagoon Reviews:Shadowfae is the debut novel of author Erica Hayes and the first book in her darkly seductive and erotic Shadowfae Chronicles. It drags the reader into the seedy under belly of Melbourne and into the darkest possible realm of the fae. The fast paced and exquisitely rendered world of this novel had me reading late into the night with it's taut, gritty noir-esque tone.The world created by Hayes is complex, diverse and depicted with flowing adjectives that lu [...]


    27. Jade has spent the last 140 years as a succubus. Under the control of a demon named Kane, she has no choice but to obey his commands, and desires nothing more than her freedom. Then she meets Rajah, an incubus also bound under the same demon. In him she finds a kindred spirit and before she realizes it, they have fallen in love. She is shocked when Rajah reveals that he has a discovered a method to earn back his mortality, breaking Kane's control. Jade is eager to try as well, but through some c [...]


    28. Shadowfae is the debut novel from Australian author Erica Hayes, and I see potential.Hayes has created a complex and detailed world where fae, demons and vampires run amok in Melbourne, largely unbeknown to mortals due to their glamour. Her descriptions of these creatures were not unnecessarily detailed, but sufficient to spark your imagination, particularly the colourful, half-mad fairies with their quivering wings and magick potions available for the cost of a memory.But this is not a happy wo [...]


    29. So let me say straight off that the writing is pretty good and the world building is rather interesting. The main reason I'm giving this a three is because I really wish that prequel heroine (Hellcursed) had shown up in this book. Oh sure, it's the same character, but now we're meeting her after a century of emotional abuse, and that's taken a toll, to be sure. I'm not saying I blame her, and the author's read on how that situation could effect someone is valid, but at times it seemed like the o [...]
