Shadow's Awakening (The Shadow Warder series Book 1)

By Molle McGregor

The first book in this genre that I can say I actually loved!! I thought the characters really came to life for me and I could picture every scene vividly. The chemistry between newfound shadow Hannah and warder Conner who is sent to rescue her is so profound that I could not help myself wanting to devour the book to find them back together again! I look forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

An ARC of this book was received for free with the request for an honest review.

Shadow's Awakening is the first full length novel in McGregor's Shadow Warder series. Hannah was a normal college student until she started having headaches and a persistent buzzing in her head. She had to quit school and seek medical treatment, but no one could find a cause to her problems. Then her mother died of a heart attack, and Hannah's life really fell apart. Her formerly loving stepfather held her captive and began to physically and mentally torture her. He invited other to participate, furthering Hannah's humiliation and degradation.

Conner is a Warder hunter; he seeks out demons who have possessed humans to remove them from the host's body. In rare cases the demon hasn't taken root enough to cause permanent damage, but in most cases the human is killed when the demon removed. Conner receives a mysterious call telling him a Shadow, another type of warrior against demons, needs his help. The catch is the Shadow doesn't know she's a Shadow, so can't access her powers to aid in her escape. Conner is reluctant to help because their laws dictate that Warders and Shadows cannot interact. The thought of an innocent in trouble overrides his concerns, however, and he's off to save Hannah. Good thing, because it turns out a very powerful demon wants her, too.

This novel gives a lot more of the Warder and Shadow back stories, filling in a lot of gaps I didn't even realize were there when I read the first novella. We learn that the Vorati demons actually have a choice to feed either on happy or painful emotions; they choose to feed on pain and fear. We also learn exactly why the Warders and Shadows broke apart 1,500 years ago and why they've not interacted since. The best part of the book, however, is the emerging relationship between Conner and Hannah, how they deal with their taboo attractions and the consequences of their actions (or lack of actions). McGregor does such a wonderful job of making you really feel the emotions of the characters. There is a lot of violence (poor Hannah can't catch a break!) and many threads left unfinished. The demons have big plans, and their efforts definitely have not been thwarted. The next book up features Conners best friend Kiernan and should be a good one.

I recommend this book, even if you haven't read the prequel novella. It's clear the characters in this novel don't know about what happened in the prequel. Should be interesting when that information comes to light in the main series! ( )
