I remember seeing that this part of this couples story was in Monster Ball Box set and thinking oh no worries I wont miss this. I was wrong on so many levels and it explains so much plus it's fun. Anyway this is a great opening for the series and this author has done it well. These two are in for a night that will lead to so much more yet is at the same time so much more than either one expected. With no past memory of what she truly is she takes the chance on a magical invitation. He has no int ...more

Oh, I just loved Lina and Nord’s first meeting. I read Hint of Danger and Face of Danger first and really think this is a great introduction of their characters and gives you a little taste of what their world is like.
Shade of Danger is the short, sweet and magical beginning that leads perfectly into the next chapter of Lina and Nord’s journey together.
You don’t have to read it to understand the others but it does give you a little bit more background and adds to their story. I feel it’s totally

I really enjoyed getting to read this prequel of how Nord and Lina met. Their first interaction will melt your heart and have you begging for your own vikings guardian. What a wonderful way to start this series with this Monster Ball.

Fantastic start to a series I have grown to love! This story was filled with questions, mystery and in the end a large Viking. It left you with an understanding of our main character and it also left us wanting more. Great world building that I can’t wait to see play out further!

Lina is on the roof of the building that she haunts. She has a deep yearning for something to change but has no thoughts on how to. She doesn't remember if she ever was on earth or just haunted it from the start or who she is. While looking at the stars a piece of paper flies down from above which she can touch and feel. It's an invitation to the Monters Ball. When the time comes for the party she is changed into a seductive and sexy woman instantly transported to the Balls entrance. Meanwhile N ...more

Lina has spent her life as a ghost so when she is invited to the Monster Ball she doesn't know how that can happen. But she doesn't tempt magic and attends. Will she enjoy her time at the ball until the Cinderella moment and she becomes a ghost again. Nord doesn't want to attend but he also won't tempt magic. When he arrives he sees Lina and knows what his mission is.

This was a fantastic introduction to Lina and Nord. As he vows to do what he needs to to protect Lina and make her happy they danc

Shade of Danger is a part of the Undercover Magic Series. It is a great prelude to the series and shows you when Lina and Nord first met then it leads right into the first book of the series. The writing in this book was amazing and I love the characters.

An invitation to the Monster Ball gives Lina a chance to be alive again for one night, and of course she can't pass up that opportunity. She meets Nord, an immortal guardian who can help her unlock her past life and her memories, and maybe she c

Really enjoyed reading this prequel to the Undercover Magic series, very well written, great character building and the storyline really sets the scene for the series to come. A fantastic short story to introduce the main characters, their budding attraction and romance, also to lay the groundwork of the mystery to solve and provide background context for the main series while being a brilliant short story in its own right. Looking forward to reading the series and more books from Meg Anne, a ne ...more

I read this as part of the "Monster Ball" anthology and it hooked me to the "Undercover Magic" series. This short read is a prequel to the series, and although you can dive in the series straight away, I highly recommend reading "Shade of Danger" before the other books. It gives a background story to Lina and Nord's relationships, and sets the pace for the story to come. Fast paced, with plenty of magic, suspense and the beginnings of a strong romance, this is a must read for fans of Meg Anne!!!

Though it was a short quick read I was sucked into the story immediately and read through it within an hour. I absolutely love and relate to the fmc, she’s a very strong willed woman and wants to live her second chance at life to the fullest even though she doesn’t know if she will even get another night after the monster ball. I am very excited to continue this series and learn more about who nord is and who Lina was in the past.

Shade of Danger is a great quick read that gives you a first glance at Lina and Nord, if you've read either or both of Hint of Danger or Face of Danger, reading this will give you even more insight to Lina and Nord. Taking place at the Monster Ball, Lina is not expecting much, after all Magic ends at Midnight and yet she meets someone that just might be the help that she needs. Whitty and captivating, this short story is a must for this series.

Intriguing and sweet story!

I love Lina and Nord and this story just gives us a super sweet taste of their first meeting.

This is a great start to their story and their adventures together that will leave you wanting more. The magic of their instant connection, when their eyes first connect, had me swooning with love for them.

Now I need to find myself my own Viking guardian. Nord is everything!!

A good prelude which does its job of introducing the main characters and the backstory very well. I liked the beginning where the spirit knows nothing, and enjoyed the Monster Ball. Well written and easy to read, but it is a prequel and ends just as things get more interesting. Definitely worth a read..

The first meeting is so crucial. The initial reaction to the person you will fall in love with. It can impact the entire relationship. Now I can dive into the story or Nord and Lina and know the whole story, know the start. Can't wait!

This was such a cute prequel to Lina and Nords story. I truly enjoyed reading about where they began. I loved the insight while she was a ghost and how magical The Monster Ball truly was for them. Great, quick read for a lot of much needed information and backstory.

Shade of Danger is the prequel to the Undercover Magic series. I thought it was a great introduction to the series and enjoyed reading the first time the two main characters met. I’ve already read the first two books in this series and absolutely loved them!

I liked this prequel that introduces Lina and Nord as they meet at the famous Monster ball. It was a quick entertaining read. Both characters were a hoot and I thought it set up the rest of the series just enough to make me want to re-read the next book to see what happens next.

Good Beginning
“Shade of Danger” gives you Lina’s history and tells us how Lina changed from being a ghost to having her body back, and how she met Nord and Finley and sets the storyline for the “Undercover Magic” series.
