My recommendation for weekend reading is: Book 2 of the Marked Souls, FORGED OF SHADOWS by Jessa Slade! I just finished it. This is a read while alert and rested book. You don’t want to miss a word.
This is a fun, dark, urban fantasy with graphic fights, haints, malice and a highly sensual mated-talyan bond: “The synergistic combination of male and female possessed powers.”
Start with Book 1 – Seduced by Shadows to really enjoy all the new layers and twists.
The war between good and evil has raged for millennia, with the Marked Souls caught in the middle, but the new girl doesn’t play by old rules…
Liam Niall never meant to be a leader. Barely surviving the horrors of the Irish Potato Famine with body and soul intact, he escaped to Chicago…where he lost half his soul and gained a wayward band of demon-possessed warriors. Now, as the talyan face a morphing evil, Liam grows weary and plagued by doubt-until a new weapon falls into his hands. Her name is Jilly Chan. To save her demon-ridden soul, Liam must win her to his battle…and his bed.
Waging a one-woman war against the threats to the street kids she mentors, Jilly won’t be any man’s woman or weapon. But Liam-with his hard eyes, soft brogue and compelling hands-is a danger to her rebellious independence…and her heart.
These two halved souls sharing one fierce passion will sear a fresh scar across the city. Who’s in danger now?
“[F]or readers who love J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood, the Marked Souls series will hit the spot.” –4 Stars RT BOOKReviews
