Shadow Healer (Blood Shadows #3) by Jennie Lynn Roberts




#Adult, #Paranormal, #Romance,

To reach the light, first they have to face the Shadows….

Riley has been a Healer long enough to know that some wounds can’t be mended. It doesn’t matter how much her Shadows want him, or how much she misses him, James tore their love apart with his lies and she simply can’t risk taking him back. But that doesn’t mean she’s going to stand aside and watch him sacrifice himself either.

James messed up. Badly. He betrayed the woman his Shadows chose, his friends, and his oath to protect the light. He doesn’t believe he’ll ever be worthy of Riley's forgiveness, but he still loves her all the same. And he will do everything he can to keep her safe. Even if it means trading his own life to guarantee hers.

There’s nowhere left to hide and time is up. Can Riley give James a second chance? Or will they stand apart, divided, while everything they love crumbles?

Shadow Healer, the final book in the Blood Shadows trilogy, is an adult paranormal romance for readers who love fated soulmates, second chances, found family, fast-paced adventure, and plenty of spice. Each book follows a different couple and has its own guaranteed HEA. Check author’s website for CW’s.

James and Riley’s story concludes the trilogy.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

SHADOW HEALER brings to a thrilling conclusion this amazing series that I have loved from the very first word. James and Riley have both made mistakes but will their love be strong enough to conquer their fears?

James - oh, boy. This man about broke my heart. He has made a multitude of mistakes, some of them absolutely horrible, but he has paid in so many ways. From a broken boy seeking love and acceptance to the man he is today, some things just don't change, no matter what. For James, it was his love for those around him, and how he will do anything to protect them.

Riley is a loner and not through choice. She has searched for friendship and acceptance, finding both in James' arms before he left her. She is determined to see things through and then intends to leave and start afresh someplace new. It takes someone looking in from the outside to point out that Riley has been holding back, putting up walls in an attempt to not get hurt. I could understand her reasoning and actions, even if I didn't like them.

Together, these two need to work together against the bigger threat - Gordon. What a character he is! A slimy piece of work and that's at his best. He is supported by the Council who are all as bad as he is. Weak and hungry for power is not a good combination.

This is a real page-turner with lots of emotions flooding the pages. My eyes leaked on more than one occasion - sometimes because I was happy, and other times not. I thought the ending was simply superb, giving me all I needed. I really hope this isn't the last we see of this world. Jennie Lynn Roberts is a one-click author for me and I HIGHLY recommend her latest masterpiece.

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Fantasy romance author Jennie Lynn Roberts believes that every kickass heroine should have control of her own story, a swoony hero to fight beside her, and a guaranteed happily ever after. Because that doesn’t always happen in real life, she began creating her own worlds that work just the way they should. And she hasn’t looked back since.

Jennie would rather be writing than doing anything else—except for spending time with her gorgeous family, of course. But when she isn’t building vibrant new worlds, she can be found nattering with friends, baking up a storm, or strolling in the woods around her home in England.

If you want to talk books, romance, movies, reluctant heroes, or just about anything else with Jennie, feel free to contact her at But be prepared to settle in for a long chat if you bring up shifters, vampires, Star Wars, or The Princess Bride….
