Shadowvale isn’t your typical small town America. The sun never shines, the gates decide who enters, magic abounds, and every resident bears some kind of curse.
Lexi Gardner is a rare creature with a nearly unlimited supply of magic. Unfortunately, that magic has gotten a little low. That’s all right. She’s come to Shadowvale for a refill and thanks to an impending magical event, getting all the magic she requires shouldn’t be a problem.
Until she crosses paths with someone who greatly needs her help. A man trapped in the forest. A man no one wanted anything to do with. A man considered by most to be a curse.
Lexi, however, sees beyond his past. She sees him for who he is now. And who he could become. The only problem is saving this handsome mountain of a man will take more magic than she has. In fact, it’ll take all the magic she can get her hands on. Seems a small price to pay for his company, however.
She vows to help him if he’ll help her in return, something he’s glad to do. But he has his own issues to deal with. As do most people in town. Like Amelia Marchand, the witch who created Shadowvale. Will Lexi be able to help Amelia and her new friend while securing the magic she desperately wants? Because a life without magic won’t be any kind of life at all. Unless love turns out to be all the magic she needs…
This has to be one of the best of this series yet. The twist and turn in the plot had me turning pages as fast as I could read. If you have read any of the Shadowvale books. You will absolutely love this one. It brings back characters from previous books as well as introducing new ones. Well done Kristen.

Shadowvale series is complex and so very interesting. New characters blending with old favorites are so fun to read about. The suspense of Kristen Painter’s world is amazing.
Love this series
This is the best of the Shadowvale series, featuring a new story as well as tying up loose ends from previous books. I couldn’t put it down! Kristen Painter is one of my favorite authors and I am always thrilled when she puts a new book out.
