Separated from her last living relative and the only home she has ever known, Chloe must rely on the deadly Eliot Gray to guide her through the strange world she sudd...more
As before in the first book, the writing is fine. I’d just like for the story to be all together. If I were to buy this as an ebook it should be priced under five dollars, for sure. I’d pay $10.00 for the whole trilogy, although, I’m beginning to wonder if it will wrap up i...more
Shadowed Ground focuses more on Chloe and Eliot as they begin their travel to Greys Landing. The action is just as packed as in Worlds Burn Through and Mrs. Keire manages to keep the story rolling as Ravenwood Manor becomes a hotspot for danger.

I want the whole experience. I...more

But here’s the thing. I am legitimately confused by this...more
I would have given this book one star but I have read worse books so that wouldn't be fair. So that half a star that makes it a little better than a bad book is for the fact that the little action that was there was interesting, and there was one or two scary parts that gave me the chills.
Wow, where to start. First, it was painful to finish this book (or short story if you want to get technical). I did finish it only because e...more
This book was full of a lot of action. Looking back on it, a few things were explained that satiated my cur...more
Recommended for fans of paranormal/urban fantasy wanting a quick read. A good read.
