Lost In Paradise gives us the story of the until now peripheral character, Ianthe and her half-merman love, Xander, while also bringing us the story of Sirens and their beginnings. This book also gives us an important turn in the Fae War that is brewing around Winter (and everyone else). We get to see cameos from our favorites in previous books, while diving deeper into the overall plotline of Ardmore.

Ianthe has been a loner, by choice yes, but also by necessity and lack of options. She fled he

With every book in this series I fall more in love with the characters!!

I have found reading Bridget Blackwood's book easy because she creates a work and characters that love hard and fight even harder when it comes to the people they love, whether they be blood or not!!

We hear of I an the in earlier books, but we really get to know her in Lost in Paradise. Being a siren is hard, she is is expected to enchant men, get pregnant by them and kill them. She is exiled by her own tribe, sisters, becau
What happens when you mix a half-merman with a reformed siren - all sorts of salty goodness! Ok so that might have been a little over the top, but this was a really great story.

This next edition of The World in Shadows series get very interesting. Winter is on the hunt for an artifact, sending Zander off on the chase. But he'll need a siren (his arch-

I am completely enthralled with this series. Once you start it, you can't put it down. I love the way Mrs. Blackwood starts each book with a different paranormal breed but they are all connected so perfectly. A lot of series tend to retell the story over and over, but not this one!! It is a new adventure with each book but still connected to the bigger picture.

Lost in Paradise is about Ianthe. She is a Siren but she was exiled from her pod because she didn't want to carry on the Siren ways. She

Lost in Paradise is the perfect continuation in the A World in Shadows series. You get to see the progress of the characters from past stories that you know and love. In addition you get to know previous secondary characters better and new characters that will make you fall in love with the series even more. Ianthe, I love that she's determined to be different than her sisters and when faced with them she stands for what she believes. Though she is falling for Zander, being a siren she doesn't w ...more
