Publisher Comments:

Falling for a demon can be hazardous to your heart.

Riana Dumain is a fully trained Sybil, a warrior priestess battling evil whose practical magic keeps her grounded in earthly science-and desires. She knows that gorgeous NYPD detective Creed Lowell is dangerous, and possibly a foot soldier of the evil Legion cult, using his badge and drop-dead looks to consolidate demonic power.

Creeds low-profile Occult Crimes Unit pulls Riana and her two sister Sybils into the case of a politicians son, murdered in a ritualistic sacrifice. Soon, Rianas instincts prove true. Creed, the hottest half-human shes ever known, a demon in bed and out, is guarding a trapdoor to hell. And unless Riana can find a way to tame her mystery mans treacherous inner self (and her heart), all of Manhattan may be enveloped by darkness.

Look for more sex, sorcery, and seduction in these novels by Anna Windsor

Julie Anderson, July 8, 2008 (view all comments by Julie Anderson)
"Bound by Shadow" is the first book in Anna Windsor's new series, 'the Dark Crescent Sisterhood'. There are at least two other books TBR "Bound by Flame" in Aug08 and "Bound by Light" in Sep08. It would be easy for Windsor to draw out this contemporary paranormal series as her heroines fight the dark forces in 'Sybil' triads, witches that work with air, fire, and earth. No water witches tho because those were wiped out by a natural disaster hundreds of years ago (shades of Atlantis). I enjoyed reading this book and will pick up at least the other two upcoming books to see where Windsor is headed with this series.

'Legion' are the bad guys. No one is really sure what they want other than money, power, and to set themselves up as rulers. Up til now they have been a disjointed group of wealthy, intelligent people creating 'Asmodai' (temporary demons) to carry out their crimes of theft, murder, etc. But it appears that they are banding together and changing their tactics. For what purpose?

Riana is an earth Sybil and the foundtion of her triad. She has gotten close to a member of the Occult Crimes Unit (OCU) to try and glean details of possible crimes and cover any possible leaks before they happen. When her OCU friend brings by her hot male partner, Creed, Riana can tell immediately that he's more than human, but not demon. She and her triad sisters decide to find out more about Creed while they are also caught up in the investigation of the occult murder of a politician's child. As the investigation heats up, so does the relationship between Riana and Creed.

Creed knows he's not quite human, but he doesn't know exactly what that 'other' part is. He's immediately attracted to Riana and so is his 'other'. He fears for Riana and tries to help her figure out what he is. He worries his 'other' may hurt Riana and searches for his brother who is 'other' like him and disappeared several years ago. The closer Riana and Creed come to answers, the more it looks like their relationship is hopeless.

I thought the world Windsor created is interesting and complex. The bad guys are textbook bad (i.e., money, power, and world domination). I enjoyed the fact that all the strong protagonists, until Creed, are women. Riana's attempts to distance herself from her desire and growing love for Creed in order to serve her mission were very heroic, even if doomed to fail. Ditto for Creed's willingness to do whatever needed to forge a life with Riana. The sex is hot without tripping over into erotica.

I'm hoping the next book will deal with Creed's brother and 'his' witch. I'll be waiting to continue my journey in Windsor's interesting world.
