A Scarlet Fury takes on a more somber tone than previous books in the series, while also dealing with more difficult subject matters. The inclusion of such different circumstances shows the ability of the author to adapt to any and all circumstances within their writing. The deviance from the usual subjects to harsher ones, is sometimes harder to transition to and Blackwood does it with ease in this story. The storyline matter is not simple or easy or even remotely fun, but the events make for s ...more

I am completely enamored with this series. The characters that Bridget Blackwood has created really feel like real people!! Even though they are Shifters, Vampires, and Fae. I instantly feel attached to each new character I meet. Although I really love Cleary.

Cleary is the head of Lion Shifters. He has totally different beliefs than he was taught growing up. This is one of the many reasons that I adore him. He has been in love with Madalaina for years but didn't think it would go anywhere. When

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Last month marked the re-release of A Scarlet Fury, the second installment in Bridget Blackwood’s Rising Shadows series. The series is an urban fantastic telling of paranormal creatures and their struggle for survival and, at times, dominance. Humankind has only recently become aware of the existence of supernatural beings and the reaction vacillates between acceptance and extreme aggression.

After surviving a brutal attack, Madalaina must try to move forward but isn’t sure how, Cleary will be whatever she needs but finds it hard to keep his feelings for hidden. Together they will need to determine if love can heal all wounds, but time is of the essence because enemies are gathering in this emotionally gripping paranormal romance.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers captures the heart and keeps readers on the edge of their seat with suspense, action, dram
*Warning - this book begins with a non-graphic depiction of rape and torture that may be a trigger for some people*

Scarlet Fury is more than just a romance - it is Madalaina (Mads) story of coming out of a very bad mental place and finding herself in the darkness. There are subtle and not so subtle lessons about life on every page and I really enjoyed watching her overcome. I thought Blackwood did a brilliant job of showing the struggle and how hard it is to get your life back after

Cleary, the head of the lion pride of shifters, has been in love with Madalaina for years but she thought what they had was only a tight friendship. When Madalaina was kidnapped with her sister in law it was Cleary to the rescue. The horrible abuse that she went through from the guards changes her. After she is out she leaves town to get her head back on straight. Once she is back home, Cleary makes his feelings known. To his shock Madalaina feels the same way but is still scared she will never ...more

This is the darkest yet of the series. A woman's triumph against physical and emotional abuse of the darkest kind. From being a pampered spoiled princess Madalaina grows into a strong confident woman as a result of her trials and finds love in the arms of Cleary. There is sadness for her when she finally achieves a relationship with her mother only to have it torn away. Running through Madalaina story are the characters I have grown to love Rachel and Bastien Varien and Winter and Tsura to name ...more

Bridget Blackwood is heading towards my favourite author list. I enjoyed book one of World in Shadows and was eager to hear about Madalaina and Winter. I wasn't disappointed. The story resolves issues from book 1 without making the storyline drag. There was a few 'oh no not again' moments but they fit and were thoroughly enjoyable. There is plenty left unresolved to keep me wanting the series to keep going. Looking forward to book 3.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for a honest review.

INTENSE. Absolutely powerful and INTENSE. The relationship between Cleary & Madalaina was captivating. The strength she possesses is outrageously beautiful.

I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns of this book. It kept me on my toes and enthralled at what would happen next.

Much love!

Fantastic. The story between Madalaina and Cleary is phenomenal. The struggles Mads goes through and overcomes make this story better than the first.

It isn't often that intimate scenes in books are so tender, so sweet, so loving. Ms. Blackwood, I salute you. Phenomenal writing.

A Scarlet Fury

A great sequel to what's shaping up to be a fun and sexy paranormal series. I loved how this story had more depth but I still wish there was more of a build up that's seen between the characters relationship. I'm definitely looking forward to more and can't wait to find out what happens with Winter's story! I hope we get to find out soon!
I really wanted to give this book more stars but I just couldn't. Although the plot is interesting, it lacks depth. I didn't feel like the characters stayed true to themselves or who they were in the first book. I really want to see how this story ends but I'm not sure I can finish the series.
Loved It!!!

Even better than the first! Wonderful second book in this series! The ending left me wanting the third to be out right now!
