Betrayed…A modern-day ghost story with a twist.
Kidnapped on her way home from work, Maggie is thrown into a terrifying world of shadow. Narrowly escaping death, she flees her kidnappers only to come face to face with her greatest fear.
Helping a dying stranger, Maggie unleashes a terrible curse when she saves Robert. Now with only a week to break the curse, time is running out as they are locked in a deadly fight with forces that will stop at nothing to destroy them.
Intensely romantic and thrilling, Desired by Shadow portrays the struggle between redemption, retribution and the desire to find a love that transcends time.
If you enjoy persnickety gods, supernatural creatures and ghosts with the ability to manifest physical bodies, then try Desired by Shadow.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First of all, I really like the cover for this book. It matches the title and the overall feel of the novel quite well and was eye-catching enough to make me notice it amongst many other books. So, great cover for a really impressive book.
I really wasn’t sure what to think of this book in the beginning. I had issues trying to connect the very beginning to the initial events in the first couple of chapters. After that, things began to tie together and I saw where the story was going. It became very enjoyable.
This story has some language in it, so if that bothers you, be aware of it before reading. I didn’t find it to be too overabundant and thought it fit well with the story. The main character is pretty tough and makes reading this book exciting. She is a bit unpredictable and you are never sure what she is going to do next. I loved that she was a smart and independent character before major events even happened.
Robert was also a great character and the author did a really good job of giving the reader a sense of his presence before introducing him fully.
The dialogue was well written and the conversations flowed smoothly. I liked the plot and the way the action scenes gave way to interesting background on the characters and the plans they were making to deal with the current situations were also exciting.
This was a good book for an afternoon of reading when the weather was too bad to go outside. I found myself involved with the story and hoping the best for the characters. I would recommend this to other readers who like some romance, action and originality in their books.
