The author of Lord’s Fall and Midnight’s Kiss returns with an enchanting and sizzling new tale about debts that cannot be repaid and hunger that cannot be satisfied…

For Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, and Graydon, gryphon and First Sentinel of the Wyr, even the slightest desire for each other is forbidden. But two hundred years ago, after a desperate play to save Beluviel’s stepson left them indebted to the cruel Djinn Malphas, they found their fates inexorably linked together—and the hunger between them growing too strong to ignore…

Two centuries later, with their debt to Malphas coming due, Beluviel and Graydon realize that, if they are to stand any chance of saving their souls, they must once again work together—this time more closely than ever before. But every moment they spend with each other brings them nearer to losing something even more vital—their hearts…

Elizabeth's Thoughts
Wow! Just…WOW!

Thea Harrison knocks SHADOW’S END right out of the park! This is one of the best reads of 2015 and one of the best books I’ve read in my whole life!

No words could adequately describe how incredible this story really is. And it is an incredible story. A story of love and hate, sacrifice and selflessness, of grief and joy. It absolutely blew me away.

Graydon is an honorable and stand-up guy. His and Bel’s romance spans centuries and is full of so much love. The story is not just about their love though. This is a major turning point in the series and is fueled with great change. Even recounting every mind-blowing event as I write this review, I’m filled with a mixture of joy, anxiety and sadness.

SHADOW’S END needs to be at the top of everyone’s to-read list. Just make sure you have plenty of time and tissues when you start because you will not be able to put it down!

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
