After witnessing her husband’s brutal murder, Brenna Baudouin lost control of her Shadow Bearer powers and wreaked havoc on her home world. Her penance: one hundred years policing hordes of supernatural misfits that spilled onto the Earthly plane after a cataclysmic war.
She’s on a routine exorcism run when she learns she’s been assigned a new partner. But there’s something about this Shadow Bearer that sparks her suspicions. Particularly when people closest to her start turning up as piles of ash.
Gray Warlow holds tight to the glamour that allows him to get close to the woman on whom he plans to wreak vengeance for betraying his people. Yet as he skillfully manipulates his way past her distrust, he begins to see her not as the heartless monster he was led to believe, but a strong, vulnerable woman.
As they work to put together the pieces of a killer’s macabre puzzle, an attraction deeper than blood and bone flares between them. And they must reveal their deepest secrets to avoid becoming the final targets.
My Review of the Series:
I'm not really one for the sexual tension/ romance stories, however, that part of the story line didn't bother me in these books. The relationship between Brenna and Gray builds, starting in the first book, on the mystery of who Gray really is. Even though at a certain point it becomes obvious to the reader (which Angela Dennis is merciful enough to confirm suspicions), we're still left dying to know when Brenna will figure it out. How will she react? Where does their relationship go from there?
Among the personal drama in Brenna’s life, she still has to deal with her job of hunting down nasty ass demons. It becomes clear very quickly that Brenna is a powerful, self sufficient woman perfectly capable of whooping booty. Underneath that though is the painful past that left her banished to Earth in the first place and a certain vulnerability that gives her character depth.
Over all, I enjoyed the books and recommend them to fans of the genre. Do be aware of the content warning though. It's there for a reason, so take that into consideration if you're interested in this series. Otherwise, I hope y'all can enjoy the books as much as I did.
