The instant New York Times bestseller

Britannia meets The Mist―with a touch of Evil Dead―in this illusory fantasy horror about a kingdom left to darkness…

Jude Maddox knows nothing of love or even light. He knows only his grim duty as the Hand of Death, to lead the Knights of the Eternal Star into a land filled with nightmares and certain demise. It’s only when he sees her―a young woman with wild, amber eyes who’s as fierce, defiant, and swift as the shadow beasts themselves―that he feels the warmth of life in his blood…

The other Knights may fear their lethal commander, with his hard, merciless demeanor. Outcast Kiara Frey sees only a leader, a man who knows how to survive. Someone like her. But wanting him is as treacherous as the shadows themselves…and just as seductive.

With a kingdom on the verge of collapse, the Knights must now venture into the darkest heart of the land and uncover the secrets of the misted shadows, where evil will prey upon their minds and feast on their flesh.

It will betray their senses.

It will surpass their nightmares.

Most of them will die.

But they have no other choice. Because the only way to fight the darkness…is to become it.


I received To Kill a Shadow in return for an honest review from the publisher via NetGalley. 

Right from the start I knew I liked Kira and the more the story progressed she just kept getting better. I loved that she cared about her group doing everything she could to keep them alive. She's just the kind of character I would want to have my back. Jude is an interesting character at first I wasn't sure but the more we learned about his past the more I started to like him. I love the sweet connection between them it just works so well. 

I typically don't read a lot of horror but when I saw the cover for this one I just had to sign up. I enjoyed this one immensely the story is a fast paced adventure into the darkness of the mist. I was hooked right from the start and ended up devouring this one in just 24 hours. I just had to know how it was going to play out and I want more. I wasn't ready for this one to end. 

This is my first book by the author so I wasn't sure what to expect. She nailed it with To Kiss a Shadow. I loved her storytelling she's created a beautifully captivating story that I couldn't put down. I enjoyed every moment of Kira and Jude's story and look forward to the series continuing. Highly recommend if you enjoy exciting story with just the right amount of slow burn romance and banter.
