‘A fantastic read that held me captive… I fell into this story from page one and didn’t come back out until I had finished it… One of the best books I’ve read this year.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
Gifted with the ability to read the shadows of ‘third species’ beings, Caitlin Parish is the Vampire Control Unit’s most powerful agent. Despite that, her mission to hunt down Kane Malloy – a master vampire – comes with a death wish. Many have tried, but few have survived.
For Caitlin, tracking Kane is about more than just professional reputation. With her parents both mysteriously killed 7 years apart to the day, Caitlin knows that without Kane’s help she is next.
She has four days to make a deal with the wicked, the irresistible, the treacherous Kane Malloy. The vampire who despises everything she stands for. Or die.
Combining sizzling passion and dark, sinfully seductive vampire heroes, Lindsay J. Pryor's writing is an exciting new find for those who love paranormal romance and urban fantasy.
If you're a fan of J.R Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kelley Armstrong, Christine Feehan, Kresley Cole or Felicity Heaton then you'll love Lindsay J. Pryor's books too.

What readers are saying about Blood Shadows
'Blood Shadows honestly blew me away. This series starter was intelligent, dark, and very intricate... Blood Shadows is a GraveTells Must Read' GraveTells.com
'If you’re looking for a new PNR series that has a dark world and complicated characters, then you'll want to grab a copy of this. I can’t wait to read the next book.' FictionVixen.com
'The push-pull dynamic between Caitlin and Kane is superb and quite possibly the best I've ever read... Pryor makes every moment between these characters count, and the result is a complex, fully developed, and insanely hot romance... Blood Shadows is a deliciously twisted and exciting tale... It will shake and stir you in the best of ways. I couldn't put it down.' TheDemonLibrarian.com - Janice
'Kane, the vampire in question, was just ridiculously sexy. I mean ridiculously so; no woman even stands a chance. I wouldn't even bother putting up a fight, to be honest. Just accept the sexiness that is Kane, because resistance is futile. But as well as all that yumminess, he was also a very intriguing and complex character; a real anti-hero and an alpha male of the highest order.' TheDemonLibrarian.com - Lynsey
'Blood Shadows is a wonderful start to a new paranormal romance series by Lindsay J. Pryor… Weaved around the emotional romance is an amazing plot. It has a complex storyline with twists and turns. You won't be able to put this book down, and you'll be wondering what is going to happen up until the last page.' Paranormal Opinion
I LOVED Blood Shadows!! First of all it was it the first book in a long time that was over 100 pages--so I really felt like I was getting what I paid for!
I love paranormal romance (especially Vampire) series & this is one of the best I have read in a long time. There is some action, some romance, & the Vamp sex is HOT, HOT, HOT, without going overboard by repeating the same action every other page. I would definitely recommend. I have read the 1st book in the series but have already bought #2 & 3 on my iPad!
I did only give it 4 stars because I felt the author could have described Kane with much more detail! Besides his Navy colored eyes...I want to imagine height, hair color & length...it is really hard for me to adjust to a short haired vampire for some reason! More description would have been nice.
On to book #2!!
Thank you for your writing!1
I’ve never written a book review before, but after seeing all the 4 & 5 star reviews, I’m seriously questioning the average reader’s intelligence. The character arcs are crap, the story arc is crap, the sex is crap… There was nothing likable about Kane. Caitlin seemed promising as a strong female lead but that fizzled out quickly. And nothing about their “romance” was believable, if you can even call it that. This one just completely missed the mark. There are thousands - THOUSANDS - of better books out there far more worthy of your time.
Really Good Read!
Loved this book!
