BDB at its best! It’s time to broaden your horizons in this book – vampires are not the only sexy as sin paranormal characters. Hello shadows! Trez and iAm have their day and they are just as uber masculine as their pale brothers. The dark duo show how far they will go to show their love and devotion. Even though Trez is terrified of heights, he takes his queen to the highest restaurant so she can enjoy the view and to an amusement park to ride a roller coaster over and over again. Equally as powerful, is the love between the two brothers and the extent that they will go to ensure the other’s happiness. Do not fret, the muscle-bound fighting giants all make their appearances, too. Once again, the BDB shows their strength not just with their fists but with their support for those within their family. J.R. Ward is certainly well known for her creative names. In The Shadows, I love her complimentary use of the terms queen and wife. It was very fitting for the balance between Trez and iAm. Finally, the female characters claim more power for themselves. Not that the females were weak in earlier novels (certainly not Xhex) but there is a distinguishable shift.
to J.R. Ward!
