Melissa's Review:

Shadow's Claim is book 13 in the Immortals After Dark series. I somehow skipped this book when going through the series. I'm glad I noticed since Trehan is a yummy alpha male and I really enjoyed this novel!

We start off with Princess Bettina dealing with her guardians that set up a tournament for her hand in marriage. She's getting cold feet with this whole situation and is trying to find a way out of it. This is when Trehan Daciano makes his entrance, he's hot on the trail of someone that broke a law and he's sent to dispatch justice (ie: death). That's when he figures out that Bettina is his mate and the only way he can claim her as his bride is to enter the tournament and kill off the competition. And oh man what a competition it was!

Shadow's Claim is an alluring read with paranormal characters battling it out gladiator style. It was fast paced and really kept my interest. I felt this was a good mix of characters, Trehan is an older than dirt vampire and Bettina is a youthful virgin demoness/Sorceri. While most of the time the virginal characters make me roll my eyes this one didn't. Bettina's convinced she's in love with another man but realizes her mixed feelings for Trehan are growing as the novel progresses. I really enjoyed their story and hope to see more Dacian novels in the future. All in all, if you're a fan of paranormal romance and haven't read this series I highly suggest it.

December Giveaway!


  1. Number 13? Wow long series, but it does sound interesting. I like that whole paranormal characters battling gladiator style bit. Seems action-packed! Glad you enjoyed it :)

    1. There are even more books after this one, I just somehow skipped this one haha. It was! Lovely series :)

  2. Hmmm I managed to miss this one too. What the heck? I think I thought maybe it was part of a spin off? Gah. Back to Amazon. lol

    1. I'm glad I wasn't the only one. I think it being also tagged as a spin off threw me off. It's most def part of the series though!

  3. I have a ways to go if I want to read a #13. I prefer to start at the beginning, and I haven't read any of these.

    1. I feel like this series is one you can easily binge read/listen to! I adore all of the books, can't wait for books 17 & 18 to be out early next year *happy dance*

  4. I've seen this authors name a lot around the web. And everyone does enjoy the books. :)

    1. I've known a few that didn't like her books, but majority seem to! :D
