Welcome to a new world with, it's rules, it's Prophecy, it's lores and it's characters which are made up of Humans, Vampires, Were's and, well….. others who are called the Third Species. There's Summer Town for the elite Humans and Third Species free, Mid town which is again Third Species free, Low Town where less fortunate Humans mingle with the Third Species and finally there's Blackthorne which is an un-policed Ghetto and is where the Third Species are forced to return to each night and live….. and that's where most of this exciting story takes place.

It revolves around Caitlin a smart strong yet vulnerable Heroine who is obsessed at getting answers from the very handsome but manipulative, ruthless, arrogant and very sexual Alpha Master Vampire called Kane. But, in turn, sexy Kane has his own agenda which is all about vengeance however when they meet there's an unwanted sizzling sexual chemistry between them. As the plot unwinds there's plenty of world-building, action, tension, suspense, secrets, major major "OMG I didn't see that coming" plot twists, sex and an intense push/pull relationship between Kane and Caitlin as trust is a big issue and is constantly being tested.

Told from dual POV's but Anne Flosnik's British narration somehow didn't fit this dark seedy world of Vampires as I'm used to her usual genre of happy Historical romances. Don't get me wrong, she did a great job but I personally think it would have been even better with a different narrator.

Worth a credit? It's just the beginning of what will hopefully build to be an awesome series, there's a bit too much inner dialogue but it's a very addictive and enjoyable listen which has a building 'to be continued' storyline….. and I just can't wait to hear more. Totally worth my credit.

Really can't say......

What disappointed you about Blood Shadows?

The narrator. I did not get past the first chapter.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lindsay J. Pryor again?

If the narrator was different.

What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

Everything. The accent was the worst.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood Shadows?

Did not get that far.
