Publisher's Summary

In the Shadow World, he was the god of death, and he was called many names. The monsters he hunted called him Anubis. Those who saw his face died. To Guardian Security, he was a number - a surgical weapon they wielded against monstrous evil.

One woman called him Kaeden Lang. Anubis never meant her to be anything except an interlude - a moment of light in the darkness of his life, a one-time escape from the ever-present haze of death. He committed an unforgivable sin: He saw her again, and again, and again. She held back the shadows that threatened to consume him.

Sky Meyers made a grave mistake six years ago. She fell in love, only to have the man she knew as Kaeden Lang disappear. Now, his daughter needed him to save her life. As the office manager for the state district attorney, Sky accessed national databases in a desperate search for her baby’s daddy, only to discover the man she knew as Kaeden Lang didn’t exist. She'd already lost the man she loved; she couldn't lose her daughter.

Other eyes noticed Sky’s search. Abruptly recalled and informed of the existence of his daughter and her illness, Anubis slipped through the shadows to help Sky, but found death threatened more than his daughter. In her attempt to find Kaeden Lang, Sky unknowingly jeopardized his Shadow World existence by alerting an enemy Kaeden Lang can’t eliminate. Only Anubis can.

Could Not Finish

The narrator's constant inhaling was too distracting and I did not like how he portrayed the characters. Then, the story just became too jumbled up and silly. Not worth the credit.

Awesome and Intriguing!!!

I really enjoyed listening to this romantic suspense story! The intrigue and danger of the life Anubis/Kaeden led was spellbinding. I just couldn’t stop listening to this book, as I was totally enthralled by the plot line—needing to know what would happen next. The romantic affair for Sky in this book was a bit frustrating as she couldn’t know who Anubis really was and what Anubis’ profession really was and the danger it entailed. At times I found Sky to be utterly stupid when her distrust would manifest—and she lacked the common sense that one would think someone who worked in a state district attorney’s office would have. The narrator did an excellent job in bringing this story to life. I look forward to listening to other books in this series.

Man I disliked Skye

As far as the plot of the book goes, I was a bit co fused by the way Skye was portrayed. In some instances, she was strong and did what was right for herself and daughter. However, in others, she was so dang weak I just wanted to slap her. Kaeden was fine. I mean, I totally appreciated the research the author clearly did as far as the whole military stuff went. I also really liked the use of code words and sentences, made it more legit. The s*x scenes were unfortunately bland. I didn’t get the connection between the two main characters.

Now let me tell you about Matt Haynes. I’d never listened to him before, but if you liked Adam Driver’s voice as Kylo Ren, Matt is your guy. That part of the audiobook I enjoyed. I however do my think I’ll be listening or reading more from this author.

thoroughly enjoyable

Thoroughly enjoyed this, I really did.

Took me a while to get in to it, both the book and the narration, but at some point I will jump into the next book, because I am intrigued by this group of people, and how they live their lives. I read the first King's Security book and this is a spin off from that series.

4 stars across the board, for the book and the narration.

Never disappointed!!

Love this series. Love that many key characters are involved in each story. This enhances each one. The ties between family, friends and general Guardians are constantly evolving and that only improves each new story. The relationships, banter and sarcastic convos make it like you are listening to a real conversation. I have a very definite picture of these chara ters, made more easily because of the superb writing. Every book and audio book is a definite, immediate buy for me and there's a damn good reason why!! They are brilliant!!

Phenomenal story, excellent series, good narration. Kris Michaels certainly knows how to capture your interest. Can’t wait for Asp’s story.

great OPS read

I thought this may have been more about romance than ops driven but I'm glad to say it wasn't.
the shadow world series isn't as hot or intense as the kings of guardian series but the continuation of characters and adjoining plots makes me want to read.
I read asp before anubis so I have a background of storyline.
I must say sky is the least heroine I enjoyed. she seems to have coped with endlless problems, a child, health scares, no family, no Anubis and yet when the shite comes knocking she moves into stupid mode. after the attack, the answers Anubis can only give, the complex,another wife's opinion....??? geez I wanted to clip her around the ear.....but hey that's what authors invoke right?
I just felt Ms Michael's may have been running out of steam. not in the OPS side as that is awesome but her formulaic writing around the romance side seems to be faltering.... . and lastly, it's nice to warm down from the missions with sth Dakota and known characters....always makes me smile. on to Lycos😊😊😊
