Summary

An epic adventure. Mysterious circumstances. Fun. Dark and steamy. Blending the best of adult paranormal romance and urban fantasy...you don't want to miss this series.

A violent storm. Unending night...Violet Archer is running through the darkness for her very life. 

A single spark blazes, calling to her. It is her chance at salvation. It is a connection beyond any she could have ever imagined. And it leads her to a lonely cabin in the woods. 

But when Violet wakes, she has no memory of how she got there. She is disturbingly ill. And a chilling evil creeps through her veins. Worse still, her host, the tall and powerful Elijah Stone, is intent on killing her. Yet a cataclysmic bond, neither can deny, stays Elijah’s hand. 

Radiants, immortals of the Light, have been warring with their enemies, the Shadows, for millennia. Now, twisted together by fate, the two adversaries must embark on a journey. One on which their very lives depend. Unfortunately for Violet, she does not know who she can trust, especially when it comes to her guide, Elijah. 

But it turns out that Violet and Elijah are not alone on their quest. They soon realize they are being hunted along the way. It seems Violet has a dark debt to settle. 

And someone very dark, indeed, is about to collect his due. 

Adult novel. Contains mature and explicit content.

Drawn out “storyline”

I feel this book was stretched and played out. Not much momentum going, not much story moving past what we “know”. I had hope for this because of the reviews but it’s an okay read. Only an okay read.

I tried

I wanted to like this book so much and I really tried. I finished it but I just didn't enjoy it like I thought I would. I liked the narration but the story just didn't hold my interest.

Disappointing

I think this story had potential but the obvious denial of information just gets annoying after awhile and makes it feel like the plot doesn’t have much more to go off. While I really wanted to give it a chance and like it, the main character isn’t someone you really learn to care about and the rest of the characters aren’t given enough analysis, beyond their superficial good looks, to make them like able either. Look, we all love sensual and steamy books, that’s why we read this, but it needs more than that to keep me wanting to read.

Good story poor narration

The story was great but the narration was overly dramatic and distracting. I struggled to listen past 2 chapters and finally decided to read the book instead of continuing to listen.

Fun, Passionate, and Very Entertaining!

This was great! Loved the opening for Shadow's Kiss! The story jumps right into it, and I love an amnesia scenario. There's lots that Violet doesn't know, and people aren't exactly being clear with the answers. Loved reading as more about Violet comes to light. There's some action scenes that are entertaining, and the story is engrossing. Plus, I love the world the book takes place in! Shadow's Kiss deals with angels in a way; the characters are called Radiants and Shadows, but the Radiants aren't quite angelic and there's more to the Shadows than expected. I listened to the audio version of Shadow's Kiss, and the narrator does a good job. I think her voice fits Violet's character. I enjoyed the romance, but it felt more magical induced rather than true soul mates; so far anyway. There is definitely passion though. Elijah is very alpha and I liked him, but he really needs to step up his game with Violet. I'm really interested to learn more about the Prince of Shadows. There's definitely a lot more to that story. I liked Violet. She's tough and stands up for herself, but she can be a little rude sometimes and doesn't exactly make the best decisions. The only part I didn't like was some scenarios with a group of women that are like femme fatales. It felt a bit too raunchy to me, and I don't really care for characters like that. It wasn't enough of an issue for me though, the story is still lots of fun and super entertaining! Looking forward to the rest of the series! It looks like the next book is a prequel type scenario, so it'll be interesting to see exactly what happened in the past. Unique world building, fun characters, and some intense passion! Good stuff!

So Fun!

Love this one! Can't wait for book 2! There's just a little bit of everything: mystery, action, suspense, adult romance, fantasy, general badass-ery. And the tone is fresh and relatable. It doesn't have that older cheesy kind of tone that some romance novels do. Great start to a series!

ok story...terrible narrator.

the story is interesting enough if a bit confusing but the editing and narration are just awful. several grammatical errors and mispronounced words.
