This was one of the best in urban fantasy that I have read in a long time. A really long time. It's hard for me to give a book a five star rating; it really has to stand out and above other books that I've read of the genre and even above books in other genres. For a while I have been shying away from urban fantasy books; they just But this book was a wonderful change from what I have been reading. At first I didn't get what the backstory was all about and almost abandoned the book but then Turen (the hero) grabbed my attention. This guy is a Guardian: not quite an angel but not a demon either. His kind is charged with guarding humanity but also with preserving themselves as a society. I didn't feel like I needed to go back and read the Old Testament or Paradise Lost to understand what was going on with this book. I like some history and background to go with my stories but with some in urban fantasy, it's like I spend most of my time trying to figure out what in the hell the author is referring to.
Turen is sacrificing himself to try and redeem his former mentor and best friend, but then finds that he needed some redeeming also. Mia is a freelance writer who finds herself transported in a cave with a really big, silent guy. One thing that I liked about Turen was that he was intelligent and patient. This was no Berserker warrior who thrashes everything in sight; this guy has a purpose and the will to see it through. And even the sex came at the right time in the book. No wham-bam's in this book. The sex was hot and totally worth the wait. Great book and one that make you want to read all that are available in the series. I found myself plotting in my head to see what happens next.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

My thoughts:
This incredible story is not your average tale of good versus evil. This story is so much more than that. It is a story of the seduction of power and it's ability to taint vision and truth. The horrifying reality of a twisted sense of commitment and a covenant gone wrong. It is a story of struggle and sacrifice on a journey to find the truth buried in betrayal, and the price of failure is extinction.
We are introduced to a woman (Mia) who finds herself involuntarily drawn into the terrifying realm of a prison and once there meets a man (Turin) who she, for reasons unknown, is drawn to save. Once they meet, another element is added to our story. The power of love.
KH LeMoyne has created a gripping tale of deceit and betrayal, love, loss, compassion, courage and the all consuming desire to fight for what you believe in.
I fell in love with the characters. Each of them brings something vital to the story.
I found myself laughing and crying throughout the story as my heart bled and rejoiced with them as they struggled.
The characters KH LeMoyne has given us are beings that could only come from the vivid and creative imagination of a writer with a storytellers heart and the talent to bring them to life on paper for us all.

Turen is a Guardian, a race similar to humans, but with added powers and responsibilities. They replenish and heal human souls when they reproduce. Along with heighten senses and the ability to "fold" (teleport), each Guardian has control over a specific ability. Mia is a regular human who suddenly begins visiting Turen in his prison cell. He is being held captive by a fellow Guardian, a man who lost all control when his mate and child were killed. Mia feels compelled to help Turen, but will this forbidden relationship help save the Guardian race, or just result in Mia's destruction?

I was impressed at the growth and change within Mia's character. In the beginning of the book, she really struggled with doubts and lack of confidence, which made sense given her recent struggles with her husband. As the story progressed, she grew beyond her grief and sorrow, back to happiness. Her self-confidence also grew and multiplied as she became stronger and more engaged with the world around her. Yes, she still depended on Turen quite a bit, but I was impressed at her progress. It felt very realistic and beliveable.

I did have a hard time grasping exactly what the Guardians' role was in relation to humans. I felt like it was skimmed over, and never fully explained. It didn't really impact the storyline, but it would have been nice to have a better handle on why they existed, and what their purpose was.

This is the first book in a series. The ending satisfied me, while still leaving several threads open for further books. I can't wait to see what happens next, and am very happy to already have the next book.

Just a warning, this is definitely an adult book. There are a few very steamy sexual scenes.

I actually read Warrior Reborn, the second book in the Guardians of Eden series before I read Betrayal's Shadow. As I was reading WR, I found myself wanting to know more about the trials Turen and Mia were forced to endure. Betrayal's Shadow did not disappoint. With just the right combination of intrigue, action and romance, I easily fell in love with the characters and the story.

LeMoyne crafts powerful characters and even as she throws devastating and terrifying trials at them, she still manages to pull them through. By the time you reach the last page, you feel completely satisfied.

I cannot wait to dive deeper into The Guardians of Eden series as she releases more books. The characters she's introduced us to in book one and two have really touched my heart and feel like old, familiar friends I'll want to revisit again and again.
