From New York Times Bestselling Author, Kristen Proby, comes an all new paranormal romance set in the mystical city of New Orleans…
I am never alone. Not even when I am alone.
I see the unquiet dead, the souls that wander through the French Quarter.
They can’t move on, and I can’t stop seeing them.
I wear malachite for protection, and I control what I let in. It’s the only way to stay sane. Everything changes the day Cassian Winslow joins my ghost walking tour and knocks my world off its axis with green eyes the color of the stone around my neck.
An unspeakable evil is loose in New Orleans, taking young women and leaving a bloodbath in his wake. More shadows lurking for me. More unhappy dead. There might be a way to stop it.
Open myself up to Cassian.
If I do, it could spell his death.
But if I don’t, it’s mine.
I had no idea what to expect going into this book. Having not read many PNR style books I was slightly apprehensive. But I needn’t have worried, this book is absolutely amazing!
Shadows is the first book in the new Bayou Magic series, a spin off from Kirsten’s bestselling Boudreaux series, set in New Orleans. This series is a little different though, as it centres around the more spiritual side of the Big Easy!
In Shadows, we follow Brielle, the oldest of 3 sisters, all with some sort of psychic or magical power.
This isn’t your typical romance novel, this is darker, more suspenseful and has you on the edge of your seat until the very end!
Brielle meets Cash when she’s working one evening, and after a few coincidental meetings and an extremely powerful instantaneous connection they embark on intense relationship, all the while trying to help the local police crack a huge case!!!
But sinister things are lurking around every corner, with no telling when they might appear. This book will make your toes curl one minute then have the hairs on the back of your neck stand up the next!!!
This books was enthralling from the off, I was intrigued by the sisters story, especially after reading the prologue and couldn’t wait to find out all about them! Shadows has a bit of everything, being a huge fan of crime/thriller novels as well as romance, this book was a fantastic combination of my favourite genres!
Kristen absolutely nailed this more spooky side to her words, and I’m already excited for book two!!!!
