Shadow's Edge: Book Blurb Blitz Tour

Shadow’s Edge
by Jami Gray 
Genre: Paranormal
Format: paperback and ebook

Publisher: Black Opal Books

Blurb: It takes a monster to hunt one, and for Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, she’s the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural live in a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and indicates someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking. Partnering up with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be a challenge as dangerous as the prey she hunts.

When the trail points back to the foundation which warped Raine’s magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head. Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder and betrayal to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.

An excerpt from Shadow's Edge: 

Walking into the dim house, Raine braced herself for the smell which usually accompanied a violent death. She knew that smell. It was distinctive. It reminded a person of raw meat, coppery blood. A scent warning you that whatever you found, it wasn’t going to be recognizable.

She was a few steps behind the two men and coming down the short entry way when she realized there was no odor. No blood, no raw meat. She let out the breath she was holding. Yet, there were spine tingling traces of magic raising bumps along her skin as she drew closer to the front room.

Two agents passed her, heading out of the house, small evidence bags in their gloved hands. Osborn stopped just to the left of the entry way to the front room. In the middle of the opening, Gavin came to a halt blocking Raine’s view. She stepped around to his right and came to an abrupt stop, puzzled.

Bane Mayson was sprawled on the faded green couch under the picture window. At first glance the scene didn’t make sense. There were no visible wounds, no horrific mutilations, nothing to show how he died. Just the skitter of magic down her spine, making the deceptively calm scene in front of her much more ominous.

“Can you give a positive ID?” Osborn’s rough voice pulled her gaze back to him. He was looking at Gavin who wasn’t answering. She tilted her head to find out why then realized Gavin was looking at her.

“What?” she asked.

“I’ve never met him,” he said blandly. “Just spoke to him on the phone.” 

“Oh.” A little disconcerted, she turned back to the waiting agent. “Yes, that’s Bane Mayson.”

About the author: Growing up on the Arizona-Mexico border, Jami Gray was adopted at the age of 14 and suddenly became the fifth eldest of 37 children. She graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and three minors-History, English, and Theater. Shortly after marrying her techie-geek hubby (who moonlighted as her best friend in high school) she completed a Masters in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix Oregon.

Now, years later, she’s back in the Southwest where she’s outnumbered in her own home by two Star Wars obsessed boys, one Star Wars obsessed husband, and an overly-friendly, 105-pound male lab. Writing is what saves her sanity.

  1. Magic and science sounds combustible. I'm eager to find out.


  2. This looks really intriguing

  3. What a wonderful idea for a story. It really sounds like a book I would love to read.

  4. Morning everyone! Much love and appreciation to Reader Girls for hosting me today! Thank you to those who've already popped in! I'm so glad you find the story intriguing.

    One of the major world elements in Urban Fantasy is magic co-existing with the real world, so my question for you is: what magic would you most love/fear to have pop up into today's world?

    I'll swing by through out the day to see what you all come up with!
    Talk to you soon!

  5. I've been limiting myself to only reading after I haul my sorry self into bed. Which means just a few minutes of reading before I conk out. I made the monumental error of starting Shadow's Edge this week, and have had to consign sleep to something I'll do "later." Now, of course, I'm lusting for the next book.
    Great job, Jami!

  6. Hey Jami. I love magic. It would be so much fun to have certain things at your fingertips, so to speak. I'd love to wiggle my nose and have the house cleaned,LOL. That's not going to happen.

    I wouldn't like someone seeing inside me or my thoughts. It's always good for a story (I'm using it in my WIP) but in real life some things we should leave alone.

    Good luck

  7. Hey Jami. Great excerpt as always. Shadow's Edge is on my list to read.

  8. Way to go, Jami! A good blurb that really enticed me.

  9. Instant housecleaning would be quite awesome, Deb! I have to go with the idea of someone reading my thoughts...I have enough trouble dealing with what's in my head, much less having someone else running around in there =0)

  10. Your blurb sounds really good Jami! I'll have to check out your book. I'm also an AZ resident and a paranormal reader and author :)

  11. Thank you everyone who stopped by! You guys make this a fun blurb tour! Huge thanks to the Reader Girls once again for hosting!
    Until next time!

  12. Love the cover. This sounds like a interesting read.

  13. I would really like to read this one!


  14. lol! Thanks for the compliment Catherine! I so wish--but it could be my alter ego =0)
    Thank you all for the fantastic comments! I'm so glad to meet you all & hope you enjoy Shadow's Edge!
