Custo Santovari is a fallen hero, a man who sacrificed himself for his best friend, an angel who’s earned himself a well-deserved place in Heaven. But Custo wasn’t cut out for Heaven and he’s not going to stay. Especially not when he discovers he can return to earth to continue the fight against the soul-sucking wraiths and rescue a woman even more tempting than his eterna...more
This book was a bit slower that the first but still held a good pace. The whole story takes place in a few days. Paranormal, romance and action filled...more
Annabella is a ballet dancer who spins magic through her dancing. Because she has no real control over the magic, she blends the shadow world with the human world pulling Custo & the "Wolf" through to the human world accidentally.
Custo decides he needs to protect Annabella from the "Wolf", while trying to return the Wolf to his ow...more
When I picked up this book I actually expected it to pick up where the first book left off and resume with Adam and Talia's story. But it doesn't, the story actually picks up two years later from where the first ended and our hero this time is Custo, Adam's best friend. For those that have read it, Custo died in the first book, tortured to death in order to save Adam and Talia's life. His noble sacrifice has earned him a place in heaven as...more
The first book in this series, Shadow Bound, blew me away with just how dark it was for a Paranormal Romance. I loved the terrible, beautiful, hopeful world ... I loved the characters ... and I ABSOLUTELY wanted more. Shadow Fall is slightly less bleak, but just as incredible.
It begins with Custo. He was tortured to death in Shadow Bound and is now chilling i...more
I had expected the story to pick up immediately after the ending of Shadow Bound so it was quite a surprise when I discovered that two years had passed since the events in the first book. Custo was tortured and k...more
I first had the privilege of reading Ms. Kellison's Soul Kissed and fell unquestionably in love. And then I found out there was so much more to the series.. Shadow Fall is actually book two in the Shadow Series.. I haven't been able to get my hands on book one yet but I will do so and soon.
This story is quite different from the first in the series as far as the storyline goes although it is a continuation. I was not prepared for...more
This being the second installment in the Shadow series, I thought I'd get more of the same from the first one. Totally not true! This book was a great re-invention of the series, complete with a new set of boy/girl romantic interests and a flash forward in time of 2 years. This story follows Annabella, a ballerina with some latent shadow abilities, and Custo, who we previously met as Adam's right hand man in Book 1.
I really think th...more
I honestly didn't remember Custo from the first book. But, his death was horrible. We're spared the graphic details, but you sure can imagine it. I loved the he would not accept that he made it to heaven. He was convinced there had been a...more
Luckily, the first book in the series was a cheapie/freebie at amazon, so I read it first. You really do need to read the books in order or you will be completely lost as this, the second books, picks right up where the first book leaves off. The world and backstory is woven in the first book as well.
I truly enjoyed this book. I liked the first book, but was completely engrossed in this book. My heart was heavy with Custo in the first book and loved his story here. Although this is of...more

This book picks up with Custo who was killed in the first book. He is now an angel and is looking to get back to earth to warn his best friend Adam there is still a traitor in their midst at the Segue Institute.

He is not the only one, as a wolf from the Shadow Lands crossed over with Custo and immediately wants Annab...more
***mild spoilers for first book, must highlight to read spoiler part****
I really enjoy the world Kellison has built. In the first book we learn about the Shadowlands, a place in between that is filled with Fae magic. The Shadowman, Death, ushers souls from the mortal realm through this area to Heaven or Hell, but he fell in love with a mortal woman and abandoned his job. This caused a thinning of the boundary and let an evil demon escape to Earth, who crea...more
