Book Description

Redemption lies beyond the veil between truth and lies.

Shadow Born, Book 1

After witnessing her husband’s brutal murder, Brenna Baudouin lost control of her Shadow Bearer powers and wreaked havoc on her home world. Her penance: one hundred years policing hordes of supernatural misfits that spilled onto the Earthly plane after a cataclysmic war.

She’s on a routine exorcism run when she learns she’s been assigned a new partner. But there’s something about this Shadow Bearer that sparks her suspicions. Particularly when people closest to her start turning up as piles of ash.

Gray Warlow holds tight to the glamour that allows him to get close to the woman on whom he plans to wreak vengeance for betraying his people. Yet as he skillfully manipulates his way past her distrust, he begins to see her not as the heartless monster he was led to believe, but a strong, vulnerable woman.

As they work to put together the pieces of a killer’s macabre puzzle, an attraction deeper than blood and bone flares between them. And they must reveal their deepest secrets to avoid becoming the final targets.

Warning: A thrill ride of supernatural proportions. Contains violent battle scenes, nail-biting suspense, crazy hot sexual tension, and enough twists and turns to make your head spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! April 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When I first read the synopsis for this book I was excited to join the tour. And it was a great read!!! Any fans if paranormal romance or urban fantasy will love this read.

We get a look into this world after the veil between the human and demonic worlds had been torn open. Demons are able to get into the human world and other creatures are proven real.

The story starts by meeting Brenna who is serving her time after being banished from her home world after committing mass murder. People seem to think they know what happened and blame her for it and events that followed. She is suspicious when Grey, another Shadow Bearer, joins her as her partner. She is suspicious that he is sent to kill her, but things are more complicated than they both think. Brenna tracks down demon's using a human host to be in the human world and removes then while trying to keep the human alive. More attacks are happening and a serial killer is on the loose. Everyone seems to think that Brenna is the target and work trying to figure it out.

People close to her keep turning up dead and clues are left to tie her to them. I love the dynamic the characters have with each other, you can see the relationships and respect they have with each other. Grey starts loosing focus to why he is there as he gets closer to Brenna. He learns things aren't how he thought and fights keeping his glamour on so that she will not recognize him. The big plot is not something from left field that you can't believe happens, and is very well written.

Angela Dennis gives us a look into both Brenna and Grey's POV and the flow of the story was perfect. This was a book that I didn't wNt to put down! It keeps you engaged and hopeful. I love the relationship that blossoms between Grey and Brenna.

5.0 out of 5 stars HLB Reviews Shadows of Fate April 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So the biggest problem I had when it came time to review this book was trying to decide if I liked it or I loved it, which is always a good sign. This was easily one of those books that I want to sit in one place for a few hours, have no one disturb me, and just submerge myself into the world and the characters and escape for a while. I genuinely enjoyed the book from beginning to end.

A couple of things stood out to me as I read the book. The first thing was at the very beginning, it starts with Brenna’s point of view, and then she meets Gray. I knew I was going to like Gray, not sure how I knew but I knew I would. As the writing progressed I remember thinking in my head, “I really hope Angela includes Gray’s point of view too, it would make the book so much better”. Three pages later bam there was Gray’s point of view. I think the story could have been told in only one POV, but having both just made it so much better, gave everyone so much more depth, and, well, made me happy.

Brenna as a character just works for me. She’s got a tough exterior, but on the inside she’s a bit on the tortured side. She’s strong, but loyal. She has a great moral compass. There were several times throughout the book where she could have taken the easy route of self-gratification and just gone for the easy vengeance, but instead she does the right thing, the right thing for her, the right thing for justice. I wish I could explain more, but I am so not going to ruin it for future readers. Brenna has a serious job, basically policing the world from things that go bump in the night (there’s some great backstory here about the Fall and the Rise). But the thing about her job, is that really, it’s all she has left. The people she works with are the only people she has left really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Urban Fantasy! April 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved everything about Angela Dennis' SHADOWS OF FATE.

After a rip in the veil between worlds is torn open, a series of brutal murders has Shadow Bearer Brenna scrambling to find who is committing them, with the help of a sexy new partner named Grey, who she is not certain she can trust. She was banished from her home world, and she is carrying around a lot of guilt because of her husband's death. She has built a new life for herself on Earth, but things are about to get nasty here as well.

Both of these characters were gritty and real. I loved the way they interacted with each other. I loved their dark and twistiness. :) A cast of great secondary characters fleshed out the plot even more. I especially liked the ghost!

This is a fast-paced read by a great writer that will keep you on the edge of your seat! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Female Heroine to Cheer For April 23, 2014
By Tammy O
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It has been a few years since I've read this genre but I loved this book! This book immediately pulls you in and has you connecting with the main characters. I enjoyed that it is a mix of action, drama, fantasy and romance all in one book. I literally could not put it down. One of my favorite attributes is the strong female heroine. I honestly get so tired of female main characters that cannot stand on their own but Brenna is a strong but also vulnerable main character. I cheered for her this whole book. Definitely worth reading. I can't wait for the second in the series!

3.0 out of 5 stars What's Jessica Biel doing on the cover of this book?? February 17, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
After the death of her husband and being brand a traitor by her father, Brenna is banished from her world and forced to live out her century long penance in another plane. With the guilt and confusion from that fateful night that changed her life forever, always riding on the coat tails of her conscious, Brenna embraces the role of a Hunter, banishing demons back to hell, as her new way of life. When grizzly murders, seemingly impossible demonic activity and an eerily familiar new partner shake up Brenna’s new life, she learns the hard way that no one is who they seem and century long grudges not easily forgotten.

Sometimes I think that reading a new paranormal romance/fantasy series is like eating a cake. When making a cake there are key ingredients such as flour, eggs and oil that you will see in every recipe, but it’s what else you decide to add or subtract from the mix that can change it from just a simple treat to either a mouthwatering decadent dessert or an inedible, bubbly pile of goo. I found "Shadows of Fate: Shadow Born", to be a far cry from being an inedible pile of goo, but it most definitely was not a decadent dessert for me and my taste buds left unsatisfied. I found this book really hard to get into and I was very unengaged through a majority of it. It did start to pick up the pace about ¾ of the way in and I found my interest growing, but the interest came a little too late for me, but it did save it from becoming a two star read, turning it into a three.

Now, I’ll never claim to be the sharpest knife in the block, but I’m not a mere butter knife either, so I was really bothered that after reading this book, I found myself a little confused. I never really got a clear understanding of the back story or worlds that Ms.
