” [The]second chance was a good story plot”
~ Under the Covers

Seems like forever since I last read from this series but when I looked, the last full length was released just May of this year. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t very excited for this release. I wasn’t sure I wanted to read this book because there has been several novellas released which I did not have the pleasure of reading. I’ve heard it was essential to read them but really, I didn’t feel like I missed anything. But then again, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I wanted to.

The pace was a bit slow for me and it didn’t pick up pass half way through the story. The beginning showed Bel and Graydon’s back story of their budding romance but it was a forbidden one. Present circumstances giving them a second chance was a good story plot.  Gray was sexy of course there was some good action in the end. However, I could not get into their romance, and honestly, I’ve started to lose interest in this series about two installments back. Yes, I’ve ended up liking the books but only because of Ms. Harrison’s talent for a strong finish. I think the romance and quality of her recent books are just not as strong compared to the beginning of this series. I can chuck it to the novellas I’ve missed but IMO, that should not be the case.

I did however enjoyed the update on the first family. Dragos, Pia and their son are always fun to read about. Peanut is not so little anymore and I predict there will be more novellas about them. Got to write what the fans crave right?

As a whole, Shadow’s end was okay. Will I continue to read this series? Maybe, maybe not. I’ll have to see. But if and when Ms. Harrison has a new series, I would still totally check it out.

About Thea Harrison

I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there. My Elder Races series began May, 2011. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

Thanks for the review. I have been looking forward to reading Graydon’s story. I have yet to read the two novellas before this as well. Overall I have liked this series, some books more than others.
