Shadow Bound

Shadow Bound (Shadow, #1) 
Shadow: Shadow Bound (1)

Well done Erin Kellison on a great novel. This story was nicely fast-pace. The story keeps you constantly riveted, wanting more. Great characterization and story. No matter how well I thought I had things figured out, I would get unexpected results.

This was recommended to me by a friend and would have otherwise most likely been forever overlooked by me. I am so grateful I was shown this book. I starteed reading it one morning and could not put it down. I even skipped lunch, so absorbed in the book as I was.

The story centers primarily around Talia. A woman in her mid-twenties who was simply trying to get a job after receiving her doctorate. However after her roommate is killed and she starts to be hunted by wraiths, everything changes. The other main character is Adam, a powerful man with a lot of money to back his work. His brother is a wraith and Adam starts an organization to stop and kill the wraiths. Researching information, he comes across a key word in Talia's work. "Shadowman." From there is searches for her and tries to get her to join his cause. This is when the real adventure begins.
There are fae, wraiths, private military men, and Death himself! 

 Also, while this is romance, it is not strictly so and is a great read for men and women. In fact, the person who recommended this was a guy and I know of 2 others who have since read it and really liked it just for the story in and of itself. So, if you are looking for a constantly moving book, this is it. There is always something big happening in every chapter. It fits just right. Not too overwhelming and yet very fast. 

Quote I really like from the book: “True fear has nothing to do with what might happen to you, however painful or vile that might be. True fear is all about what might happen to someone you love.”  


  1. Intriguing review. I had never heard of this trilogy before, but after reading your review (s), I think I will be adding this to my TBR pile. I like the quote, too. While I may or may not be afraid of what will happen to me, I find it more important that my loved ones are safe, healthy, and happy, and that they love Jesus Christ as their Savior.

  2. Sounds like a fun book! It is now on my GR TBR. Thanks for the recommendation.
