Publisher's Summary

THE SERIES WITH OVER A MILLION BOOKS SOLD

Welcome back to The Shade...

"Of course you know who I am. I'm a daughter of the darkness just as surely as you are his son..."

Ever since his brief encounter with Emilia at The Shade, Derek's thoughts and dreams have been haunted with images of the mysterious, beautiful brunette. Plagued with guilt, he struggles to understand why he is so drawn to this dark stranger from his past.

When Emilia suddenly appears again on the island, Derek is both terrified and intrigued. But this time, he is determined to involve Sofia and discover who this woman is.

If only Derek and Sofia knew, Emilia is a mystery that should be left undiscovered...

"Once you have the book in your possession, you need to come up with an excuse to lock yourself away, take supplies with you. Be prepared to lose a few hours. And most importantly a huge DO-NOT DISTURB sign..." (Purpinkroses Book Corner)

"This is one of the most emotional books I have ever read by this author. There was so much going on that you couldn't stop to do anything but flip the page!" (Paranormal Book Fairy)

My favorite in the series

This is my favorite Audio in the series so far. It answers a lot of questions that I’ve had. We learn of the elder and where the vampires originate from. Now that Ben is no longer in the equation as part of the love triangle, the beautiful Emilia is introduced. She is not a character to bring more drama to the story but a critical part to the whole picture. Emilia intrigues Derrick to the point of distraction. She test the conviction of his love for Sofia and the very strength of their bond.

Repetitive

I enjoy this series, but the retelling of previous book plots in this story made this book redundant and less interesting. I hope there is not more of the same coming up next. If someone likes this series why can't one assume they remember the plot and what has already happened and not be driven to repeat it with each subsequent book.

A Blaze of Cospiracy

Would you try another book from Bella Forrest and/or the narrators?

Yes, because the story is getting interesting, with new facts and a lot of conspiracy... Although in my opinion, the story is too slow, and could be told on book four.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Curiostiy.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Less books. The story doesn't need so many books to be told. I think the story of all this five books could be resumed to three.

Better than book 4

** spoiler alert ** Book 5 was better than book 4, but still not on the same level as the first three.

We finally get some answers in this one though. A few of the who, what, when, and where's are discovered and some of the characters stories make a little more sense now.
There are a few twists and surprises but nothing you didn't see coming a few pages before the reveal.

For a couple in love and engaged to be married they don't spend very much time together. It seems like they were only around each other in the first couple of books and since then they are separated for one reason or another. Even once they are back under the same roof they still sleep in different rooms... who does that? They finally find time to be together and they argue... I mean, really? You don't get the feeling that they love each other anymore.

I also don't get how people's mind sets can change so quickly... you've hated these people for decades and yet over the course of a week you have a change of heart? I think not.

I'm intrigued with how the story will unfold now that a cure is in the works... on to the next book.
