Burdened by a dark past ripe with blood, death, & enough guilt and regrets to last several lifetimes, Cale Terriot is on a mission to make amends and atone for the sins of his father and so when Silas MacCreedy calls in a debt, Cale reluctantly agrees to help him. When he learns what is expected of him, Cale knows he should refuse but it's the only way to satisfy his debt and ease his guilt. The King of the Terriot clan of Shapeshifters goes underground to fight in an illegal fight ring in an ef ...more
What an amazing read. 22 pages in and I was already sighing, getting pissed off and trying to murder some fictional characters. Intense nail biting read. Kept me riveted to the pages. I loved every word in this book. Nancy Gideon sure is a master at weaving such a complex story. The flow was great and the action brilliant. A highly recommended read.

Love this story! Cale is awesome and came from such a difficult and tragic past. To see him over come and to become just as deadly and awesome as Max was so exciting to see. The Terriot Princes....... Holy Hotness. There is so much deliciousness between all them it's hard not to drool. Each book that Nancy writes in this series is equally as good and continues to world build and the plot line keeps thickening. She does a really great job keeping this series going and I have enjoyed every minute ...more

My convoluted thoughts again...

First of all, I'm not Cale's biggest fan...I thought he was a shithead when he was first introduce and hadn't fallen in love with him in Remembered By Moonlight (Moonlight, #9) by Nancy Gideon neither. Now...I still don't know if I like him or not, nor can I understand him most times. LOL! *shrugs*

This is another great adventure and as always, unpredictable. I could never presume where NG will take us, only hang on with a death grip till we get there.

Really enjoyed being back in the "Moonlight" world and with Cale and Kendra, but Cale's fatalistic attitude wore on my last nerve. How many times do you need to be drugged before you start watching out for yourself? *sigh* The second time I just thought he was a dumb shit who was almost TSTL. I can't believe I am saying that too. *sigh* Anyhoo - that aside I did really enjoy it and I can't wait to read the next one in the series. ...more

>Book Review – Unleashed by Shadows –

>This is the 10th book in the By Moonlight series. I started reading this series with this book and was expecting to be a bit confused. The author did a good job of catching the reader up on the action without bogging the story down with too many past details.

>Cale is a shifter and king of his clan. What is interesting is that Cale is one of 12 brothers all much larger than he is. Cale is the smallest of the brothers, but the fiercest. For an alpha protago
I was leery of this book but love the series so I bit it. I was hoping for something like Max & CeeCee's book 2&3 - mild angst and settling into their relationship but ultimately them against the world. Cale/Kendra's first book was full of heartache and angst, an emotional roller coaster, and I've already discussed how I feel about Cale's douchey irresponsible and selfish behavior. Seems he hasn't changed much because this book was chock full of it too. Flimsy and convoluted plot (starts out wit ...more

Cale is a shifter and prince in his clan. He's never been thought of as a leader until he needed to be. Now he's willing to give up his leadership for a chance to protect the shifters from his evil brother. If nobility doesn't show leadership, I think we need to rethink what being a true leader is.

Ms. Gideon takes us back to NOLA where the seedy underbelly of life is more than what the police can handle, even when they aren't in the back pockets of the bad guys. In Unleashed by Shadows we get to
I'm kicking myself for letting this book and the previous book sit on my kindle for so long, since they had come out.
This book was so ... just sooo fantastic. One of the things I really liked was how all of the previous couples played some sort of role in this story. As an aside, Silas turned into a big jerk face at the end of the last book and the beginning of this book, but totally went back to being a hottie at the conclusion of the book.

Out of a sense of guilt Cale feels the need to make up for all he's done and seen in his life. He must atone and agrees to help Silas which leads him to an underground fight club and the battle for his people and his soul. I so enjoyed his story.

I give Unleashed by Shadows 4 hearts!
