Eliana is a woman on the run. As a Shadow Walker, she is driven from her home in Rome when she believes the man she loved murdered her father. Now she makes her living as an art thief and a competitor in the underground fighting circuit of Paris. But her past is about to catch up with her in the form of The Hunt, a group of elite assassins with one objective: eliminate her before she can expose the secrets of her shape-shifting clan to the world…
Demetrius is a man with nothing left to lose. Haunted by the memory of Eliana and the passion they once shared, he will risk everything to save her from the killers on her tail. He must convince her, before the ancient walls between two worlds crumble, that only together can they defeat their real enemy, a brilliant, cunning traitor far more deadly than either of them can guess.

The narrator for this book was awful. Her representation of the characters was ok but when she was narrating the story, in what I assume was her own voice, it was horrible, jarring and distracting from the story. I wanted to stop several time but was on and airplane with no other reading material. Her voice sounded like something dire or super exciting was happening, the whole time!
The recording quality did not help either, it sounded like it was recorded in a bathroom! Horrible performance.
The story was good the ending left my head spinning, it was wrapped up very quickly. The twist at the end was very unexpected and will have me buying the next book because I assume that the character involved will appear again. However I will be buying the Kindle version!
This third book was just ok for me. Eliana was not at all likable, too self-centered, too hard-headed, too blind to what was really going on around her, nor could I picture her being beautiful since she had "shoulder length, chopped rough and dyed indigo blue hair." Really? And, of course, she would be attracted to someone, Demetrius, with a shaved head, tats and 3 rings in his brow, and he's supposed to be 30 years old? A rebellious 16 year old, maybe. I just can't picture a hero looking like that. But, that's just me. I was so disappointed in the storyline I'm not even sure I'll read the others in this series. I'm only at 43% and I'm having a really hard time keeping an interest in this book. I'll leave an update whether I finish it or not. At this point I'm just not sure.
Update: 7/13... OK I finished it and I'm still disappointed. Everything was just alright for me, nothing special.
However, I do wish someone would kill Viscount Weymouth. I think he's a little too much like Eliana's evil father.
As much as I liked the first 2 books in this series I will go on to the 4th one.
As to the narrator: Wonderful! Ms. Dawe keeps getting better and better with each book she reads. Men sounding like men!! Doesn't get better than that!
D.B.Reynolds book jabril
all of it could of been better but if the book is rubbish it is hard to get your narrators to do anything great .
No i hated this book it was hard to get into and the characters had no depth to them
I will not read any more of this series.
