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.

Endings and New Beginnings

A story that keeps you coming back for more. Unrequited love turned obsession. Just when you think there is going to be a happy ending, something happens to threaten it. So many interesting characters and the stories are woven together beautifully. The characters do get pretty sappy at times, but with a series like this, it is to be expected.

Fantastic narrators that keeps the story interesting. Worth the credit!!

A Bit Long, but Worth It

There were a few chapters that I felt were moving too slowly. The story is getting better with each book though. I guess I will get the next one!
