Never-ending battle...

As we're introduced to the bloodthirsty Morthclaw werewolf tribe, Bastien must find a way to save his homeland.
Grace, still fighting for her life with the help of her family, discovers another secret long held by ISBI. What will it take to bring them down and will The Shade find the answers they're desperately searching for? Will Bastien find a way to protect and save his homeland?
Again, I was on pins and needles throughout this entire book. It's action packed; full of un

An Hour of Need

Endless storytelling. If you the diehards of paranormal wish to immerse yourself in a series of over thirty novels this is the one. The storyline will be never-ending and the cliffhanger will capture you to the last novel. I am in my second month and up to thirty and find myself intrigued, immersed, spelled bound, as if the first was being read. I keep wondering away to read another novel to give myself a break. But, find I pick up the next installment and the next . . .still read

Just gets better

Wow, so much is happening. How does one begin. Everyone we have come to love, hate is still very much active on the story lines. How the author manages to captivate is just amazing.

Grace, Lawrence, Victoria, and the wolves, fae’s and Vampires. The hawks, the witches, warlocks and Dragons. What is not to live about this series!! Okay maybe the Bloodless. Lol

Off to #30! Happy Reading.

A man of many titles Derek Novak has just added another to the list and it is one he never in a million years would have thought to be called. Meanwhile the race is on to find a cure for Grace. Sebastien finds out the chlling truth about his family and unfortunately there is nothing he can do to stop them. I really hope Victoria shows a little more initiative, backbone and stops seeking the approval of her parents so much. I have high hopes for her.

I'll never tire of this series - not ever.
If you start this series, you MUST start with the first book, A Shade Of Vampire! You'll never understand the connection between the main characters and what brings (forces) them together from the start - especially the relationship between Sophia Claremont and Derek Novak.

Okay -
I've loved these last several books. I'm still waiting for Bastien's character to really take to that next level, know what I mean? I want to see that oomph that I know is just s

Wow Bella has done it. Again this book is just bursting with energy. We have Grace who is sick from her bite, she finally finds Lawrence in the Aviary of all places....wth his memory erased it takes a lot for grace to persuade him, and a hot kiss and her diary seem to have helped him lol, it seems the IBSI are just about everywhere the shades people look....and then Lucas seems to have a little interest from Marion...the young French girl he rescued from the Trunchlands along with her baby...he' ...more

I'm addicted to this series! I love all the supernatural worlds and how they're interconnected. Can't wait to read the next one!

If I had one complaint, it's these books are just too short. Thank goodness the author puts them out so quickly. It's impressive really.

I've read all her books except one small series (beautiful monster - I think they're called.)

Book 29 left me hanging off the cliff of "what's next!?!"

While the love story elements are more fantastical than the supernatural creatures, that's why I read. I don't read books for their literary elements, allegory for life... Blah. I want to be entertained and these

This book series has everything a PNR reader would want...vampires, shifters, werewolves,other super naturals,romance, mystery,danger,suspense!!!

Another brillaint book in the series of the shade. It was amazing as old places and old memoerys have been brough up. Ones best left in the best. The hunters are becoming more and more determined to prevent the anti-dote from being know while the shadow leagues fights to find the hidden ingrents while grace suffers from the diesease. Loved it.

Had me on the edge of my seat!

Oh my gosh so much was happening in this book! It had my on the edge of my seat! I'm desperate to see what happens to Grace, excited to see they finally found Lawrence and oh my gosh don't even get me started on the Montclaws! Need to drive right into the next book!

Love this series! My only complaints are they seem too short and I hate waiting for a new one to come out! Its impressive how fast they do come out but I hate waiting for them! Doesn't matter what I'm reading when one is released cause that book will be put on hold for this series! Hoping they never end!

Great addition

I throughly enjoyed this ride to The Shade. It took some getting used to the new characters but this book is a wonderful blend of everyone including the importance of King Derek. It left me seriously dry mouthed with so many questions and wanting to know what happens next. Keep reading!!!! Excellent job Bella.

Omg Grace. This was hard for me to read. So sad. Have some tissues handy. Great book. Can't wait, only 2 more days for next book. I'm dying here and hoping all is alright. So glad they found Lawrence and I love how he got his memory back.

Heating Up

Twists, turns and anticipation....... all delivered!! As the series expands nothing is lost. Forrest maintains the integrity of the original, simply adding new characters, while maturing those that already exist.
