Favorite Lines “The hardest truth to accept is who we truly are.”

“What monsters might he find lurking in the old shed?”

“Many paths to lead us to seek out the knowledge of who we really are and what we’re capable of, none of them easy.”

“There’s a space between each heartbeat. In the moment between every thought of who you truly are and who you could be merge together into one perfect whole.” Amy kissed Monroe on the jagged scar running up to his ear. “You are who you were meant to be, and I will

My traditional style of reviewing isn't going to work for this review. I realized that there would be too many spoilers for people who haven't read this book or any of the books in the series. I'll admit that Ms. Luhrs saved the best for last. Embraced by Shadow is a pulse pounding read from first page to last page. All my favorite characters old and new make appearances thru out the book. I highly recommend this series. I wish the author best of luck in the future.

I'm so very sad that this series is ending. I will miss these characters and this world, which has been so lovingly created by Cynthia Luhrs. If you are new to the Shadow Walker world I urge you to treat yourself to reading this series. It has it all Highlander Hotties, Rogue Pirates, Good and Evil Fae, Dragons, and Gods.

Once I started this book, I was hooked! Half way through I was posting that it was one of the best books of the series. This was a sad story to tell, Monroe's story. We've seen

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I love that Monroe finally got his own story! Cythia Luhrs Shadow Walkers series is great! All of the characters are wonderful, even those you love to hate. The series is very imaginative and kept me on the edge of my seat.

Poor Monroe, always drunk and jealous. He wants what's out of his reach and isn't willing to make any changes to get what he wants. Amy wants Monroe to change for her but he had no desire.

** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

'Embraced By Shadow' is such a great book to end an awesome series. I loved the storyline. The creativity throughout kept me glued to the paged. The different creatures were well described and this story was well written. The way this book played out was great. I loved the action, the mystery and the romance. I loved Monroe's story. A great add to your tbr list. Recommended!

A good end to a great series.

As with the books that came before all the characters are consistently well - written, believable and likeable. I particularly like the Dragon and the hell - hound and their humour!

This was so nearly 5 stars but I just had the odd niggly feeling that a couple of things slid by too easily without the amazing focus that I'd become used to.

I would definitely recommend this series.

Book Authors: Cynthia Luhrs

Rating: 5 stars

We get into Monroe's head! And Amy's. And Drakens! And Fury's.

This is the last book of the series and frankly speaking, there's room for the author to change her mind and write some more. A lot of events, a lot of point of view, and a lot of growing up. Overall, well done. I like Mac and I think the ending was very fitting. ^_^

If I say anymore, that would give away much of the bo
