So good

This book was awesome. It played like a movie in my mind as I read it. Seeing the heroine come into her own and finding strength was so cool. I did want to cry when it ended so I will eagerly wait for the next installment.

This is Shadow, book one of the Genetically Modified series written by Holly S Roberts. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and so worried for Marinah the entire time. Have you ever felt overwhelmed and surrounded by wolves in sheep’s clothing?? What about barely contained beasts that ripple just below the surface of the huge men that are watching your every move? Trust me, you WILL NOT want to set this one down until the exciting cliffhanger ending! I’m gonna go sit in a corner and ...more

I've been a fan of Holly S. Roberts books for quite some time and THIS book SHADOW is just another example and why I LOVE reading this authors books, regardless of the genre. Holly has a very special gift as an extremely talented author, with a brilliant and creative mind. Holly has the capability to bring out different emotions by the reader, which I find extraordinary.

Fierce warrior

A brave young woman. A fierce warrior. Together they can save the world. An epic romance set in a fierce background of betrayal and war. She does not know what she is capable of. One man will show her. Their love story will capture you so deep. One of the best storytellers out there. Holly S Roberts has weaved her magic into a wicked story of love that conquers all. Thank you for this fantastic story
Following in her father's footsteps, Marinah Church is appointed Secretary Of Defense by the new President though she is only twenty four and has little to no practical experience other than analytical stats and figure tracking experience.

Less than twenty four hours after her appointment, Marinah is sent to negotiate with the Shadow Warriors on behalf of the United States Federation. It is hoped that they will agree to combine forces to deal with the invasion of hellhounds, virtual indestructib

Half-man, half-beast, King is the ultimate Alpha Male.

Leader of the Shadow Warriors, King's objective is to live in harmony among the human race. Already living peacefully with Cuban survivors of the Hellhound 'apocalypse'  two years after the war shows their restraint and ability to lead normal lives despite their shape-shifting abilities.

Clumsy, naive and subservient Marinah is sent to Cuba as a liaison between the Federation and Shadow Warriors - a mission sure

I was looking forward to this book so much and Ms. Wicked did not disappointment me.  This book kept me laughing from the first page, yelling at the characters, cheering them on, and even crying.  It was a huge roller coaster and I enjoyed it all.  I am already reading it again within a day of finishing it.  I cannot get enough of this book and story.  I need more in this series and hope to get more besides the first two books we have.  Pickup this book and keep reading my review to find out mor ...more
This is Book 1 in A Genetically Modified Novel series. The world has changed and there are now humans, Shadow Warriors and the bad Hellhounds. King is the Leader of the Shadow Warriors and Marinah has been asked by the Federation to go to Cuba, which is where the Shadow Warrior’s live now. They want them to come back and save the humans. Or do they? This is not your regular paranormal type of book. King has his idea of what Marinah is there for and Marinah has her idea of why she’s there. But do ...more
In true Holly Roberts style, She makes you FEEL so many emotions. This book also got me so emotionally involved, I could not put it down. I fell asleep reading it, then finished it this morning. If you want to be taken to a new place, a new world, pick up this book and start reading. It is so well written and full of interesting new characters and new paranormal creatures you also will be emotionally involved! Loved It! From a True Fan... Pam James.

What an amazing start to a new series. It’s not normally the type of book I read but I really enjoyed it. Even if it isn’t what you normally read I think you should pick up a copy and give it a shot.

Beyond a SHADOW of a doubt, this book ROCKS

This book was so much MORE than I expected! Marhina made me laugh out loud from the first chapter! King made me want to submit! I was glued to this book and read the whole thing in one sitting, then went back and read it AGAIN!
