The Best yet!


This was the best of the Shade books I have read. All have been hard to put down but this was the hardest to leave. Loved the ending!

The Elders take over

Books 7 in the series we get to know the Elders and how sadistic they really are. It was heartbreaking hearing the things play out between the separate couples and what they were made to put each other through. I felt that Derek should have sensed earlier that Sofia was not truly in control of her vessel. It was a little drawn out in that aspect for me. I love that Vivian is finally getting a voice and hopefully she will get a life and the love she’s deserved for centuries. I’m not sure how this series has 20 more books in it. I see the end of the war and turmoil for the couple coming soon. Let’s see what the author has in store for us next. Another great performance by the narrators.

Excellent series!!

I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series! Bella Forrest has left a wide opening for more adventures to come after this book. I wasn't sure if I would like the books because of the younger sounding narrator. After the first book they flowed very easily for me.

Why are they getting shorter?

Very confused by the books getting shorter, yet, costing the same. Seems like I'm being used as a reader.
