Shadow Walker is the series starter for the Shadow Walker Trilogy and I couldn’t be more excited for this trilogy! I first met Charlie McCray’s character in the Excalibar Investigations series, she was the niece of the main character in that series but she was a teenager who was just coming into her own. Now Charlie is a woman who has been on her own and running operations with Major Crimes for the past few years. Everything was lining up just as she wanted it but then it all fell apart in an in ...more

Was intrigued by the summary and the high ratings, but story came out as flat to me. I always enjoyed reading about heroines with painful past, since the story is always on their healing processes. Charlie was in denial when it comes to her pain, ok I get it, but her denial took up a majority of the short story that there was no healing process but a bam, I’ve move on, done with grief two-liner. While I loved the potential story line, I can’t get behind because of again, Charlie’s way of dealing ...more

With fast-paced scenes, characters to feel for and a rocky romance, this is a fantasy to pick up and get lost in.

Charlie is a witch and a top enforcer in a type of police force, but when a bust goes bad and her friends die, she struggles to gain her footing again. When the chance to catch her team's murderer arises, she can't turn it down. Not only does it mean putting her own life in the line as she hunts down the dangerous enemy, but she's forced to face her own past and the life-time bond to

Shadow Walker is the first book in Tiffany Shand's new Shadow Walker trilogy. After her team is killed, Charlie McCray abandons her dream and moves in a different direction. When the opportunity to find out of a notorious group called the Tears is involved, Charlie jumps at the chance - even though it means working along side the delectable demon, Drake, who thinks they are mates. As the story unfolds, secrets are revealed and danger lurks around every corner. Charlie must see it through in orde ...more
This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.

Charlie McCray is a Denai witch who works as an enforcer. She lost her entire team in a bust that went horrendously wrong and now she’s set on finding the person responsible. Drake, a demon from her past steps in to help her and they start investigating.

The thing about Drake is that he is convinced that Charlie is his life-mate and he is going to stop at nothing to convince her. While she feels something for him, she is in full speed denial. T

This story was unique which was awesome. Had promise and mystery. Though it seemed like it was a spin-off of another series and at times it left you clueless with a few details the author mentioned. The story often switched point of views between Drake and Charlie without warning. A few of the sentences in the copy I received didn't make sense, they either were missing a word or were in the wrong order. The time frame of her breakup seemed off as well when reading. I liked the story and would re ...more

This is the 1st book I’ve read and reviewed for Tiffany Shand and I absolutely loved it. Fantastic read and no I’m not giving any spoilers but I will tell you that I loved this book so much I went and bought the box set. Ok just a little spoiler, Charlie McCray is a Deni witch who works as a enforcer when the bust goes bad and her team mates are killed Charlie goes in search of the murderers. Charlie has a gift and she can communicate with the dead which only helps her so much. That’s it. I love ...more

Shadow Walker starts the trilogy out with a bang - literally and figuratively. I've been looking forward to this spin-off since reading the Excalibar Investigations trilogy and it didn't disappoint. The story is action-packed and fast paced from beginning to end as Charlie searches for answers and justice. We also have a bit of a love triangle amidst the action, but it's not overly angsty on that part and it's not hard to see which way our heroine is leaning. The world-building is minimal as thi ...more

I received this ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book has so much potential and I'm so upset that it did not live up to what it could be. I am giving this book four and a half stars. When you read this story the premises and the background is simply amazing. However the execution is what made it for me. This story can easily be 5 stars but the transitions and the way that it flowed was not good. I really hope that when this book gets published on its release date the author goes ba

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book . This was a well written urban fantasy love triangle romance. This book is a spin off of the original series which I have not read but had no problem keeping up. Denai witch Charlie McCray is able to communicate with the dead and she uses that gift to investigate the death of her teammates. She's not happy about having to communicate with a demon from her past and fights the attraction they both feel. Lots of drama, suspense and twists ...more

Wow! What a fast paced book. I was hooked from the very beginning. Great storyline, strong characters with lots of action and an up and down romance between Charlie and Drake make this a book not to be missed. A couple of twists in the plot make you yearn for the next story in the trilogy. I am impressed with this author and will be reading more of her books in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A big thank you to the author for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I liked the book. I read for fun and this kept me entertained. Charlie is likeable and the story is pretty fast paced. I felt there could have been more background. We got hints if the past but no real details. It has a cliff hanger so be prepared. I give it a 4. I will read the next book. I think most Urban fantasy readers would enjoy this.

Wow, what a great story. It has strong characters and a great storyline, packed with plenty of action and some romance thrown in for good measure as well as a good twist along the way. this is one of those books that I could write so much about but won't due to not wanting to spoil it for other readers. I can't wait to read more from this author and series. If you love Paranormal romance or Urban fantasy with a touch of romance then you are going love this book.

What a great book 1 in a new Denai Witch series. I loved Charlie and Drake. Their interactions in this story were a hoot. I thought the book was well written and found it sucked me in after the first chapter and before I knew it I was at the end. Signs that it is a great story. I found it to be fast paced with a bit of a mystery started here and be solved in the next books. Thought the ending was a bit surprising and cannot wait to see what happens next.

I think it might've been easier to follow if I had read the previous series. This might explain the past between the main character and the hero, especially the life bond situation.

That said, I followed along and was drawn deep into the book. I'm dying to know more about her heritage and the Scrimtar..... and why did he disappear into the demon realm? I need so much more and hope book is coming soon.

This is a fascinating world of witches and demons and all sorts of magical people. Charlie is a strong but lost witch, trying to get through life after a tragedy. And Drake is a demon, strong, powerful, stubborn and hot! Charlie is just as stubborn in her own way, and it makes things interesting between them. This is my first trip into this world. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

3.5 stars

This is a pretty cool story. The author created a truly unique world of paranormal beings. The story was action packed with a bit of angst and mystery thrown in. There were many different paranormal characters introduced into this story, which made the story very interesting.

I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next book in this story.
