Beyond the Shadows is the third in her Force of Nature series. It’s unique in many aspects and yet familiar in some. There’s vampires, werewolves, warlocks, and fae in this world that the author has created, but there’s also something more. And that something is Piper. Piper has been a mystery in the past to everyone she knows(supposedly,anyway)and more importantly to herself. Now that she is coming into her powers, she’s actually more powerful than all the other supernaturals around her combined. She knows a lot more about herself by this third book and is ready to kick some ass-again. Her bound mate, vampire enforcer Merc, is back in the picture now and Knox, the werewolf alpha from Alaska, is still by her side as well. And that’s a big problem. Bigger problem? War is coming to the supernaturals in New York City and Piper and all her cohorts are involved, willingly or unwillingly. When Knox’s pack comes under fire from an unknown and unseen entity, things speed up in this war.
As in previous books, I loved all these characters, well, except for the villains anyway. Piper has grown from a young woman that was barely making it in the supernatural world, to being larger than life at times. She has a deep love for everyone in her circle, especially Knox and Merc. She’s close to Kat, a lone werewolf, and Grizz, the Alaskan grizzly bear with an attitude and a close bond to Piper. She continues to be mentored by Drake, the aged warlock with major secrets. Knox is still my favorite male hero of the series. He’s honorable, loyal, and loves Piper-probably more than his own pack. Merc, I would have gravitated to for Piper, back in the beginning of the series. But he had his problems and they were pretty major-even though the worst of them wasn’t his fault. I feel almost sorry for him at times, but I just have more good feelings about Knox-can’t help it. I do know that Merc has his fans though. My absolute favorite side character is still Grizz, with Kat coming in second place. Any fun moments always featured both of them giving much needed levity to this supernatural world full of war and death.
This book was full of skirmishes and then all out war at times. The good guys don’t always win every confrontation and a new threat is introduced. I enjoyed the whole thing. The writing was good as usual, the premise remains interesting, and the pacing was pretty spot on. The only thing that would have made this a bit better for me would be some more happening in the romance department. I know it’s urban fantasy, but I still missed it as it’s been there in the previous books. These definitely need to be read in order, as it’s an ongoing story.
Highly recommended to urban fantasy readers. This particular book is for ages 14 plus, in my opinion, although the previous books were probably 16 plus. There is violence and language.
I felt relationships were developed more in Beyond the Shadows, Piper is coming more into herself after the events of book one and two, but she still has the same insecurities from her childhood, however with the closer relationships she's building she is starting to get through some of those.
I have to say that my favourite character in this book, and pretty much in the series, is Grizz. Oh I love me some Grizz, he just has the best scenes and moments and makes me laugh. Kat, of course, is my second favourite. I really feel like she needs her own series. She's just such a kickass awesome side character and the scenes with her, Piper and Grizz are the best, specially if Brunton is around for Kat to pick on!
There were some big reveals in this book and a great new character was introduced. He may be slightly evil, but not am I intrigued by him and I can't wait to see what the author does with him next.
I really enjoyed this book as much as I've enjoyed the previous two in the series. This is another five star review from me and I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens next.
Posting this review again. I don't know what happened to the review I posted last night. But here goes...
Piper and the gang are back again. This time someone is targeting the “pack”. Before it’s too late, they need to figure who is it or if this “mysterious assassin” has some sort of connection to the faeries. It’s another heart-stopping/OMG ” kind of book that will keep you guessing to the very end. And of course, the cliff hanger would leave you gasping for more.
As always, I love Grizz!!! I wish I had a pet like Grizz! And Piper...oh Piper! She’s all grown up now (LOL), she got some “power”/magic issues but she’s definitely stronger. And I’m kinda liking the Drake character better. There’s more revelation in this 3rd installment. Something you might or might NOT see coming. Love triangle is much more intense than ever. Nevertheless, this book is another ALN masterpiece.
