From the Author

Jesminda and Draven's story was fun to write! They were my first and so will hold a special place in my heart! I hope you love their story as much as I do!

About the Author

One of Tigris' fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, "The Case of The Missing Pepperoni", out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals. Tigris writes the Shadow Unit Series, featuring hot immortal men who police their kind, and women who love them. She also co-writes the Romantic Tales: Bedtime stories, which have included, The Genesis Project, a Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance, featuring Genesis Blackmore, the last remaining human on New Earth. In Season 2 or Romantic Tales, Tigris has Red Hawk Mercenary group. This is also a Sci-Fi, but Erotic Romance featuring female assassins with very little moral codes. Tigris is currently working on the Shadow Unit Series, Romantic Tales: Bedtimes Stories, and has expanded on the Genesis Project which will now be a trilogy introduced in 2014. Tigris is a military brat who's done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She's married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world. You can find Tigris on Twitter, Facebook, and at her website.

I was very torn on how to rate this book.

Synapsis:
Our hero and heroine have a one night stand that results in a little pink bundle of joy; only he doesn't know because they don't see each other until the book flashes forward five years. Now the h is in trouble because she has married a real bad guy who is not only abusive but traffics in illegal activities of the supernatural persuasion. When the h find out her husband is kidnapping and killing vampires for their blood she offers help to a super-secret paranormal police force in exchange for protection from her husband for her and her daughter. Of course the heroine's one night stand and the father of her child just happens to be on the police force. So starts a fast pace well written story to get the heroine safe, "secure" her daughter oh and save the kidnapped vamps; all while our bad guy does his most evil to prevent it.

Review:
I found the story to be well written and fast paced and enjoyed being taken along for the journey. I almost have to review this in two aspects. 1. The action was good and the author was creative and unflinchingly descriptive at writing some of her gritty scenes. Honestly I have to say the scene where they interrogated a traitor and the scenes where the heroine flashed back to the abuse in her marriage will stay with me for a while. Still not sure if that's a good thing or not as it def. made an impression on me, but I'm imaginative enough that some of the reading made me squeamish. 2. The Romantic Relationship was something that had me thinking about the book after I finished. I think the biggest problem was that I didn't really like either the heroine or the hero. The hero is supposed to be a "strong alpha male" type and he is, but really he's taken beyond that to a bit of a jerk.

I'm of two minds, having finished this book. On one hand, I found myself really irritated with the book in general and the cliffhanger ending in particular. On the other hand, I apparently liked it since I was willing to go out and buy the sequel. The latter probably trumps the former.

To address that first issue, what annoyed me the most was the fact that the whole thing is just so darned wordy. What I mean is that Ms. Eden often takes pages and pages to say what could have been accomplished in two sentences. And while this sometimes worked really well, painting a vivid mental picture and setting the scene for the characters to shine in (and they often do), at other times I found myself thinking, 'Oh. My. God. Have we really not moved on yet?' Unfortunately this latter thought struck me more often than I would like to admit.

This excess verbiage also means that, even though the book is 232 pages long, very little seems to happen. Even less once you factor in the fact that half the book is sex scenes. This is to be expected, of course, so mentioning it isn't a complaint. But it leaves the plot to consist of essentially a one-night stand, a meeting, a car trip, a kidnapping, a rescue, and a cliffhanger. That's not much for 200+ pages.

As I said, I did go out and purchase book two...or open up my laptop and click 'buy now.' So there were obviously things about the book I liked too. Most notably I liked Royce and Ronin, who Burned in Shadows is focused on. Their mystique was intriguing and I want to know more about them.

I liked the way Eden made Draven's over-bearing, alpha nature feel almost like more of a cultural misunderstanding between him and Jes than anything else.

This would have been an interesting concept, but is so full of grammatical errors and misused words that I was distracted and frustrated. (Nuisance instead of nuance, is one example of far too many to count.) I also did not like that, after plodding through all those mistakes, the story does not end and I would need to wait for Book 2 if I wanted to - hopefully - get answers to the many questions I am left with.

My first thoughts on this novel? What a twist and what a rush. This was awesome. My final thoughts however, `you've got to be kidding me! It' can't end like that!' (vocally enough that my dogs came running). A standalone novel this is not, but completely phenomenal none the less.

This novel is vividly visual right from the first page. I can see the characters and their surroundings right in my mind's eye. Eden's off the walls, in your face writing style keeps you on your toes throughout. Eden also sets off at a fast pace that she keeps up for most of the novel. There were a few places where the story lagged as she fills in her readers about necessary background information, but that is bound to happen in the first novel of a new series.

I really like Eden's take on the supernatural world. As many different species and races as she presents, the supernaturals actually stick together for once. At the same time, each of the supernatural races is individually developed. As a reader you don't get to know everything about any of the races, however you know as much about them as the other characters do. It's quite the unique concept. The well-developed supernatural law enforcement agency is also very intriguing.

The characters in this novel are completely off the hook. By individually developing each of the characters Eden allows them to stand on their own. At the same time, she ties everyone together so that you can see how they fit into their unit and family as a whole. With the large variety of character types in this novel there is someone for everyone to fall in love with and to identify with. There is also someone for every reader to keep as the bad guy.

Overall, this was a brilliant introduction to the Shadow Unit.
