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.

Shadow

Loved the narration of Matt Haynes

When you have to live in the darkness, and find a light, that makes you feel alive for awhile , you can't let it go. That is how Anubis feels about Sky. Sky's one night stand, became more than one night and from that her daughter was born.

Anubis/Kaeden Lang disappeared, when she needs him. Sky accessed national databases in a desperate search for him, 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.

Her search has been noticed and Anubis is informed of the existence of his daughter and her illness, He comes out of the shadows to help Sky, But there is dangerous people looking for Anubis and his daughter...

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!!

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.

WOW!

What a story line! I loved the characters. I laughed. I cried (I normally don't) I sat on the edge of my seat. I give this book 500%. I hope the rest of the books in this series are just as good. I couldn't put it down.

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.
