Miscommunication, periods of distance, fleeting smiles and learning to trust someone when a person can’t even trust himself, these are what they struggle with while still trying to do their jobs. One is a psychopath, called a murderer and monster and generally deemed subhuman by nearly everyone who knows of him; the other is an introvert, cold and emotionless and so lost in thoughts that he would agree that he can be called a monster of inhumanity.
But what makes a person human; is it humanity, compassion, or is it simply the ability to reason?
in the company of shadows
Can a monster be human, and general humanity breed monsters? While they learn about each other, they learn about themselves; where their loyalty and morality lies, and how learning to trust another person can be incredibly difficult, bittersweet, and rewarding all at the same time.
Join Hsin Liu Vega aka “Sin” and Boyd Beaulieu as they struggle to find where they fit in a world slowly recovering from war. In the Company of Shadows 2.

Now… I really love it when I learn something about myself from reading a book. What I learned from Afterimage: I love fairy tales and puppies and ice cream sundaes. This is torturous angst that rips you apart and skewers you and eats you alive and then spits you out and stomps on you and flicks you off its shoe into a vat of burning lava only to burn to a fiery death.
I just get WAY too connected, too involved, too invested…this book felt like evenfaol breakdown for me. Did I love it? View all 78 comments. Nov 12, Shelley rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was horrible! An experience in emotional anguish that I think has left me with a bloody ulcer, a few gray hairs and a nervous tick. Those with heart conditions, stomache conditions, and mental instability, stay far away.
Those who find themselves emotionally invested after the pages of Book 1 I defy you not to be wrap aia heart in kevlar and line your stomach with copious amounts of Gaviscon, c This book was horrible! Those who find themselves emotionally invested after the pages of Book 1 I defy you not to be wrap your heart in kevlar and line your stomach with copious amounts of Gaviscon, cause the shits about to go down.
I shout out zis Angst lovers from wide and far to gather round, look no further cause here lies your holy grail! When I read a book like this I wish I was an educated literary smart arse with a psychology degree to be able to break it all down for you.
The setting is cold, grey, stormy and does everything to fuel the mood of this book. Can you imagine a pulse and tone like this for a thousand pages? The fierce rage coupled with the angst is my undoing. It’s all white noise after a while, the numbness settles and after staring off in the distance for an undetermined amount of time, you pick it up, carry on, and experience it all over again! Why did I read it if it left me in such a state?
Because it’s an addiction and because I am totally in love with Hsin Liu Vega! It was nothing I expected and more than I could have ever imagined.
I want so much more, even if it kills me, I want more. I evenfal more than emotionally invested here, I am obsessed! View all 17 comments.

Afterimage (In the Company of Shadows, #2) by Ais
The result of this was I couldn’t bring myself to start it, I pushed it to the side for days while I read whatever I found at the top of my kindle. It was never sinny from my thoughts but I’d already been through so much with these two I just wanted them together. I know life within the Agency will never be easy and their missions are beyond dangerous but that didn’t matter to me as long as they were facing it together and that was the problem with this book, they weren’t.
I love Sin, I suspect it’s impossible to read these books aks not seriously fall totally in love with him. In Afterimage we donny more about his past and what shaped him into the killing machine he is today and as you can imagine it makes for difficult reading. Why should I care now that he’s not anymore? I was both upset and disgusted by the treatment he received by the two people who are supposed to love evnfall care for him and don’t get me started on Boyd because I’ll be ranting for pages and pages.
And yes I know Boyd is young and yes it must be hard having someone like Sin sojny emotionally dependent on him but hasn’t he any idea how lucky he is and how much he should treasure it.
I mean seriously he told him he loves him and If donny read it you understand just how addictive it is especially when you consider half the time I didn’t even like what I was reading. My feelings ranged from upset to absolutely furious and I was completely drained by the time I’d finished. I’ve read some of the reviews for The Interludes and I’m glad it’s lighter and sonnh an interlude of sorts because I don’t think I could move straight onto another such draining emotional read.
It’s testament to how much I love these books that I’ve actually put them on my kindle. I have an iPad and a kindle and if I can’t do what I want with them then I generally don’t do it at all but after reading Evenfall evemfall and 2 on my iPad I knew I had to get the series transferred so I cleaned away the cobwebs and wiped away the dust and actually used my computer for something other than playing the occasional Region 1 DVD.

I have deleted my ratings from all Santino books I have read, because I too am shocked and appalled!!! I won’t do it with the ICOS series though. I am gonna be honest here and say, that this series is one of the best I have ever read, and I am sure Ais played a big part in my enjoyment. As far as I know, Ais had nothing to do with all that has happe I know many are removing their ratings and reviews of all the books they have read, written by Santino Hassell, in light of his despicable behavior.
As far as I know, Ais had nothing to do with all that has happend. Until I hear otherwise, my ratings and reviews for this series, will stay up. I am sorry for those who might not agree with me on this. I would also like to say that I am so sorry for all of you who have been hurt Yeah it was just as gutwrenching as I remember and just as freaking awesome!!!! First of all, you need to read book 1 before you read this one.
This is a series and the books can not be read as stand alones!! I myself am an emotional basket case right now Just like the previous book, I wouldn’t even know where to start.
I will tell you that I spend most of my time pissed off at one of sobny MC’s while reading this. I really wanted to jump into the book and kick some ass!! Still, even though this book pissed me off, made me cry and frustrated the hell out of me, it’s one of the best books I’ve read. So far this whole series is. So it was defenitely worth it. I also have an amazing support system, so once again At the end I really needed some laughs, which I got in the form of “Emilio”!! Thank god for his character.
I think I fell in love a little: P Of course I’m gonna jump into book 3 right away. I can’t wait to read what happens next.
