The story works both as an introduction to the series and a continuation of the previous full-length volumes. No plot points or twists of the first book are given away.

What did I think about it?
What a well written novella!
William Massa is still a relatively new-to-me author. I read his Dracula based crime thriller (Fear The Light) last month and really enjoyed it.
Massa’s writing style is intelligent but easy to read. He has a good understanding of how to create an engaging story and obviously carries out hours of research. Massa allows his readers to get to know the characters he creates – he shows us their personalities.
In Ice Shadows, he laid down the backstory without ever slowing down the pace of this action-filled thriller. Giving us enough information to know what makes our hero, Mark Talon, tick and his extensive experience as a lethal warrior.
The plot moved smoothly with a good balance of tension and action. There were a couple of surprise twists and turns that I loved. You don’t really want to know what’s going to happen next in stories of this genre although we all love to guess. 😉
Ice Shadows is an excellent dip into the Occult Assassin series. I can’t wait to read more.
If William Massa is new for you too, keep reading to find out more him.
Thanks for taking the time to read this mini-review for Ice Shadows. I really appreciate it. Now, go buy it! 😉
