Blood Shadow is a companion novel to the Eye of the Storm series and also acts as a PREQUEL to a brand new series to come. You don't have to read Eye of the Storm to enjoy this novel (some background is given). However, we always recommend you do in order to gain full understanding of how the characters have arrived at this point.

#1 Blood Shadow - ★★★

Blood Shadow (Blood Never Lies #1) is a companion novel for An Eye of The Storm Series.

Blood Shadow can be read without reading the previous books. At the beginning, the author has included a recap of everything you need to know about the main character, before you start reading this book.

Blood Shadow was an interesting read, that is for certain. At the beginning I felt a bit lost in time and it took me  awhile to underst
Nancy (The Avid Reader)
I loved the Eye of the Storm series and was so happy to see that a companion novel Blood Shadow from the series had been written. I was also glad to see one of my favorite characters from Eye of the Storm as the main character in Blood Shadow so that I could get to know her better and to understand her life and why she did the things she did.

With a new name and identity Jennifer gets a second chance at life. She is trying to put her past behind her but with all the hurt from her past that might

DH has a genius imagination. Blood Shadow sets the scene for what I predict will be one hell of a story.

Jennifer has serious issues and a past that haunts her for many reasons. She has a lot on her plate and her life gets even more complicated with huge revelations and twists and turns throughout.

Totally unexpected, amazing plot which has you gripped from the start. Couldn't put it down!

This is the first book in a new companion novel to the Eye of the Storm series. I loved it! You don't have to read the Eye of the Storm series to read this book, but I recommend that you do, so you have a good grasp of where Selena has been and where Jennifer is heading.

Jennifer Warren (aka Selena Smith) is an extremely complex character. I felt for her as she hasn't had an easy life. This is a woman I loved to hate in the Eye of the Storm series, as she was a real *i*ch. Five years after being

What can I say, except, Dianna Hardy never disappoints. Blood Shadows is the story of Jennifer (aka Selena); her next chapter. Jennifer is one of those characters that you hate to love, but as you get to know her over the course of The Eye of the Storm Series; learning about her past, seeing why she is the way she is and then watching everything she has to go through... well, she ends up being the character you admire and respect the most. So I for one was very happy to learn she gets a second c ...more

This is the beginning of a new series from Dianna Hardy, which has it's roots in The Eye of The Storm series. You don't need to have read the series to read this book though, although you will be able to understand why the main character, Jennifer Warren, acts in the way that she does.
Five years after Jennifer has put her werewolf past behind her, she is settled in to a new life with a job, house and a boyfriend. She receives anonymous notes from time to time that warn her of things that will h

When it comes to a paranormal/fantasy read, you won’t find better than that written by Dianna Hardy. Blood Shadows lives up to the her previous series.

Blood Shadows is the first in the duet Blood Never Lies and some what of a spin off of the Eye of the Storm series. It is well written and if you haven’t read the EotS you won’t be lost but may appreciate yit more if you have. I feel it will be enjoyed either way!

Blood Shadows is Jennifer’s story. She has been through one tremendous ordeal after

Well what can I say I love love this book! Selena has been one of my favourite characters in the eye of the storm series and I'm so glad Dianna given her voice. Dark and sexy a must read in my eyes
Blood never lies

This book as given to me as a gift. One I am very grateful to my sister for.
Such a fantastic read. The characters and story have left me wanting to know more. I cannot say that Selina was one of my favoured characters in Eye of the Storm, I felt too sorry for her, but Dianna has given me another angle to see Jennifer from, and I cannot wait to see how this story progresses. I love and hate the fact that I must now wait patently for the next book to be written..But will enjoy more

“I was a coward. I've been a coward. So have you. We've both got blood on our hands. We're not the heroes who saved the world, we're the villains who survived it. I've made my peace with that. You should, too, because guilt is a weight you'll never swim away from.” 5 likes
“She's a she-wolf. Her nature demands she's dominated, even if she tries to fight it. She'll listen to an amount of force – positive force, not negative force. But leave the run wide open with no boundaries and she won't listen to you at all. All she'll listen to is the call of freedom, even if it leads her straight into a trap. Stop thinking like a human. She's a wolf.” 5 likes
