The gloaming is near

What if all you've ever known of King Arthur's legend was a lie to mislead you from the truth? What if Camelot truly existed, but was destroyed to keep its secrets? And, what if there were descendants of the Knights of the Round Table defending us today from the creatures that lurk within the shadows? If the gloaming came looking for you would you answer its call?

Fourteen year old Abigail Thorne answered the gloaming and it turned her life upside down. Along with her mentor Lourdes Reese, a seasoned hunter in the King's Court, they banish the evil shadows while most dociles sleep in their beds. Fighting hidden creatures that feed on humans, glimpsing fractures that lead to another world, and wielding magical weapons all before geometry? That's a normal day for Abbey now, and she loves every minute of it. As for Lourdes Reese, she has unique abilities that can't be explained and is the best hunter the King's Court has seen in over a thousand years. Abbey and Lourdie have no idea that being sent to Britain will unleash a chain of events that will change everything and everyone they love forever.

A life will be lost, a life will be taken, and an unexpected new romance will emerge all while the fate of two worlds balances on the edge of a hunter's blade.

Cloak of Shadows by C.K. Dawn ( Netherwalker, #1)

Cloak of Shadows (Netherwalker #1)So many tales from history to hear. Which were true and which were fabrications to hide the truth? One of the greatest legends of was of King Arthur and his Knights, brave warriors all. Could it be possible that the descendants of these warriors have become guardians that defend us from evil to this very day? When your time comes, if the blood in your veins is the same as the Knights, like young Abbey’s, Duty calls and your life will be changed forever. Enter the world where warriors come in all shapes and sizes. Enter the world of C.K. Dawn and the new series Netherwalker with book one, Cloak of Shadows, where warriors are honed into lethal fighting machines and evil is kept at bay.

Sounds pretty ominous, doesn’t it? Probably because you haven’t met Abbey and her mentor, Lourdes! Abbey is priceless, her wit, candor and rough edges, not to mention her invisible sense of self brings humor and charm to a tale of good versus evil. Lourdie is a loner, far more powerful than her peers, she is unique among hunters and no one knows why she is so powerful. The two have been invited to Britain to hopefully find another hunter capable of being trained to do what Lourdie does. Too bad no one mentioned Temple, the often arrogant and aloof laird of the manor. While Abbey dubs him Mr. Hunky, Lourdie finds he unsettles her, oh wait, could she be fighting a romantic attraction to the man?

All’s not hearts and magic and flowers, though, evil is stalking the hunters and every second spent training MUST pay off as other worldly creatures threaten humanity. Heroes will fall, hearts will break, but the war goes on…

Sadly, I don’t remember King Arthur and his Round Table having an Abbey or a Lourdes among them! Thank you for correcting that oversight, C. K. Dawn! With brilliant attention to each scene, from the smell of sweat, the clashing of weapons and the chaotic action, C.K.Dawn has created a spellbinding world with characters that jump off the pages and appear before your very mind’s eye. The romance takes second chair to the action and the lives of these characters. Get ready to fight the good fight alongside the descendants of the world’s best warriors. Perhaps C. K. Dawn cast a spell over this tale, because I for one could NOT put it down! Brilliant writing, perfect pacing and exhausting action. Loved it!

I received this copy from C.K. Dawn in exchange for my honest review.
