This first book introduces you into blackthorn with two characters that are haunted by the past, each needing to use the other to accomplish their goals. Simple revenge isn't enough for Kane Malloy. No, He plans to make those responsible for his sisters death suffer a fate, worse than death. Caitlyn, will risk her life, career and heart to find out what happened to her parents so she can prevent it from happening to her. It's paranormal romance psychological warfare at its best and you will be left loving every page turning minute of it. Be prepared to love, hate, despise and crave the characters in this series.
This is a dark series and Lindsey isn't afraid to take you to ugly places or to push boundaries. The emotional ride that you experience as a reader isn't something that I have had with other authors and its was a fresh change.
Currently there are 7 books in the series that continue surprise you at every turn, push you further as a reader and build the suspense for the finale Blood Broken, which promises to be emotional and psychological torture, in the best possible way.
As a fan of J. Ward and L. Adrian and as a paranormal writer myself, I am always on the lookout for something fresh, creative and more importantly, well written.
Ms. Pryor nails all three of my reading requirements and how.
Blackthorn is the poorest of the districts in a dystopian world where humans rule and the "third species" i.e. vampires, lycans and low-life humans have been relegated to a pitiful existence and are clamoring for a revolution. Throw in a prophecy that tells of human reign being overthrown by the species and you've got an intriguing backdrop for a well-told story.
Blood Shadows introduces agent Caitlin Parish whose past propels her towards her future as she hunts the one vampire who can help unravel the mystery surrounding her parents' death and her own impending doom.
Kane Malloy, the elusive Master Vampire, manages to thwart agent Parish and the Vampire Control Unit's every attempt at capture but has plans to draw out his enemies with the help of the lovely agent.
Determined to find Kane, Caitlin succeeds, bringing her face to face with the Master Vampire. Unbeknownst to Caitlin, arresting him is a calculated measure in Kane's well thought out plot to take down his enemies. He draws Caitlin in, letting her believe she has the upper hand but it's all a farce in his grand plan to use her to his advantage.
And Caitlin isn't prepared for what happens next. Neither of them are. In her moment of glory as the first agent to ever bring Kane in, attraction explodes between the hunter and the hunted, adding tension to the story from the get go.
Herein begins Caitlin and Kane's saga, an unraveling of a story superbly intertwined with a mayhem of secrets that only get more captivating and complicated as we find the two trying to fight their attraction while out besting the other to reach their individual goals.
Through an elaborate web of twists and turns, Caitlin learns of a horrible betrayal that changes everything she's ever believed about Kane.
Caitlin quickly realizes Kane isn't simply a means to an end, but someone she may be able to trust and help fight the demons that threaten her very existence, bringing us to a potent climax, setting the stage for the second book in the series.
As compelling as the story was of Caitlin and Kane, Ms. Pryor's writing style swept me in. She has a literary approach to telling a fantastical story and I absolutely applaud her for that. Ms. Pryor has become one of my all time favorite writers because she has managed to build a world that is full of intriguing characters while doing it was panache. She avoids what I call "grunge" language and draws you in with intelligent writing.
If you love vampires and are in search of a new series, let me suggest you immediately purchase all three of Ms. Pryor's Blackthorn books. You won't regret it.
I am now on the third book and I am totally hooked. This series, so far, does not seem to fall into the trap that some others tend to, where the couples involved in the romantic conflict may change for each book, but the predictability and outcome of their story is either repetitive or predictable.
This is a great series where the sex is steamy, the actions of the heroes may not always appear to be heroic, and where the "happy ever after" is not so clear cut.
