I was very excited to read Shadowed, Jase Kayrs story. He was held and tortured by demons for five years, he is the damaged and angry brother. I couldn't wait to get inside his head and see him find his happily ever after. What an amazing story it turned out to be!
The war between the supernaturals is accelerating. In the hopes to help align the vampires with the witches, the king of the vampires and Jase's brother agrees to an arranged marriage between Jase and Brenna Dunne. Brenna is suffering from a poisoning and her only hope of survival is mating with a powerful being that can counter act the poison.
Jase sees this as an opportunity to gain enough power to enact his plan for revenge against the demons while Brenna sees this as a shot of saving the man of her dreams as well as a chance at her own survival.
There is a prophecy about a witch born on the solstice and the power she will gain from a comet, it ends up that Brenna is the prophesied witch. Some want to own Brenna for this power, some want to destroy her before she can gain the power, Jace decides for her protection he must move her to the vampire strong hold. A rogue group of depraved vampires called the Kurgans kidnap Jase's nephew, a bounty is placed on Jase's and Brenna's heads by the demons, a fraction of witches called Citizen Revolting Against Pagurus (CRAP, lol) wants Brenna dead before the solstice, the cards are really stacked against them.
It was amazing to see how the Kayrs family rallied around Jase and Brenna. The relationship between the brothers is fabulous to watch. The compassion and acceptance of their spouses was amazing and the complete devotion to each of the family members was heart melting.
The story was packed with action, explosive and steamy romance, plenty of humor, heart touching moments as well as nail biting suspense...add in the paranormal aspect and Rebecca Zanetti created a perfectly superb dark fantasy and a must read.
I received this ARC copy of Shadowed from eKensington in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 3, 2013.
