Audio Book Review: Shadow's End by Thea Harrison

Shadow's End 
(Elder Races Series, #9)
by Thea Harrison 
Narrated by: Sophie Eastlake

Blurb: 
For Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, and Graydon, gryphon and First Sentinel of the Wyr, even the slightest desire for each other is forbidden. But two hundred years ago, after a desperate play to save Beluviel's stepson left them indebted to the cruel Djinn Malphas, they found their fates inexorably linked together-and the hunger between them growing too strong to ignore . . . Two centuries later, with their debt to Malphas coming due, Beluviel and Graydon realize that, if they are to stand any chance of saving their souls, they must once again work together-this time more closely than ever before. But every moment they spend with each other brings them nearer to losing something even more vital-their hearts.

Viviana's Review: 
If I said it before, this series is more of a “let’s reconnect with old friends” type of read.  I did enjoy the story and this looks like it’s the end of this overall arc.  I believe I read on Thea’s website or social media that the next books in the series will focus on the Wry in Europe.

Graydon was also one of my favorites and I’m glad he finally got his HEA and he is able to keep the promise he has made to their love in the process.

While I really enjoyed this installment I must add that something bugged me… there have always been novellas that have been an “addition” to the overall word… however, it seems the novellas have finally collided with the main story/plot specifically those involving Dragos, Pia & Peanut (Liam).  While Thea does a good job of giving the reader a bit of background to those events and I didn’t feel totally lost and I still felt like I missed something.  Oh and a set of characters from a novella do pop up and had to look them up to figure out who they were & from what story but that is just me.

I enjoyed this… there’s action, characters we get to know better and of course the romance.


Narrator’s review: I do love Sophia’s performance and how she provides each character with their own tones and voices.  I swear I forget it’s not a guy narrating Love.



Rating: 3.5 Stars - I REALLY LIKED IT
