[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Shadow's Pleausure

Mollie McGregor's writing career started when she was seven and suffered terrible insomnia. Night after night she couldn’t sleep until long after mid-night, only to wake a few hours later. Frustrated with her inability to just go to bed, (and her penchant for sneaking a book and a flashlight under the covers) her grandmother said, “You like to read so much, why don’t you tell yourself a story until you fall asleep.” With this brilliant advice, Molle’s overactive brain was off and running. Now, years later, she’s finally taught herself to sleep, but she’s never stopped telling stories.

When she’s not reading, writing, or staring into space making things up, Molle is getting into trouble with her husband, two sons, two dogs and vicious attack cat in the mountains of North Carolina. She likes to hike, cook, listen to music way too loud, and hang out with her boys. She does not like dusting or emptying the dishwasher.

Brought together by circumstance. Bound together by chance. Despite the danger, passions ignite...

Sequestered for over ten years and manipulated by those that were supposed to love and protect her, Sorcha wants nothing more than her freedom. When her childhood friend and two other Shadows are kidnapped and held by a sadistic Director hell-bent on changing the very nature of their existence, Sorcha knows it’s past time to escape. With the help of the sinfully sexy Kiernan Black, she finally gains her independence, but the depths of her passion for the Warder may be more dangerous than the mission to save her friends.

As a Warder, Kiernan Black has never turned his back on an innocent. So when one of his own is working with a demon to brutalize innocent Shadows, he knows he must save them. With the beautiful, brave, and infuriatingly stubborn Sorcha Davis as his partner, he embarks on what might be the most dangerous mission of his life. But if he can find a way to make the fiery Shadow his along the way, the rewards could outweigh the risks.

Our review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Shadow’s Pleasure is the second installment of the SHADOW WARDER series. I didn't actually read the prequel to the series, but in a nutshell, there is a race of supernaturals called Shadows and Warders. Each battle a race of demons called the Vorati. For thousands of years, the Shadows and Warders have been kept separate with an unknown rift causing them to distrust one another, now, however, Shadows and Warders are coming together to battle the evil and fall in love in the process. With that all said, Shadow's Pleasure stands well on its own and readers won't be lost if they happen to jump in here.

In Shadow's Pleasure, we meet Sorcha, a Shadow empath and gifted tracker who has been kept weak and captive by her mentor. When her friends disappear and are found to be kept by a sadistic Director hell-bent on domination and destruction, she does everything in her power to convince her superiors that she's strong enough to go out in the real world to find them. Even if that means pairing up with a Warder.

Kiernan is a Warder with a tragic past. He's a loner and puts most of his energy into fighting the evil he was born to destroy. When he offers to help Sorcha rescue his friends from one of his own who has gone darkside, he's in for way more than he bargained for.

Shadow's Pleasure brings you magick, mayhem, some fun inventions, the emotional battle between good and evil and adversity all tied together with plenty of romance, deep characterization, lots of action, and some cool plot twists.

I absolutely loved this book and I would recommend the book and series to all Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance readers!
