For justice - could you betray your family?

For love - are you ready to question everything you believe in?

For Caitlin, tracking Kane is about more than just professional reputation. With her parents both mysteriously killed 7 years apart to the day, Caitlin knows that without Kane’s help she is next.

What an absolutely intriguing story! Caitlin Parish is a shadow reader, she can reader a Vampire's shadow (this is basically like a soul) and by doing this she knows their deepest secrets and desires. She's been tracking Kane Malloy, a master vampire for years. He's the only vampire that can help her kill what's after her, her parents were killed by the same sinister creature, exactly 7 years apart and if she can't get Kane Malloy to help her she's next!

Kane Malloy is infamous, known to be twisted and cruel, he hates Lycans and humans alike. When Caitlin confronts him in a bar, she realises she bitten off more than she can chew. Kane is predatory and 100% alpha male, that night the nearly kidnaps her with her unit only a few meters away! That doesn't stop him though, Kane needs Caitlin for something and he's determined to get her, and Caitlin only realises the extent of what he's capable of, once she's handcuffed to his bed!

"Is that why you're arrogant enough to think you can get my soul> Because you think I fancy you? "I didn't for sure. But I do now." Caitlin exhaled curtly. "You're unbelievable." "Say yes next time I've got you on your back and you'll find out just how unbelievable.


Blood Shadows, is a heavily plot based story, there are so many plot twists, so many secrets unraveled that I doubt anyone could get bored while reading this book! The sexual tension was palpable, the sex scenes sensual and very hot! Kane is 100% alpha male and Caitlin gives him a run for his money! I found the first 30% overly descriptive and rather slow, which is why I gave a rating of 4-4.5 Stars. But the story definitely picked up after that! I love it when I find a new author and series, it's rare that I find a story that caters to my particular tastes so accurately!
