Summary

A stand-alone story in the Shadow Beast Shifters world. Best listened to after Reborn for storyline continuity.

Melalekin "Angel" of the Honor Meadows has been a warrior her entire life. Battle. Death. Loss. They were her constant companions until the day she met Mera Callahan. A shifter who ended up being so much more. A shifter who changed her life, and now...she has been reborn. The scars of her past are gone. Her losses muted under the new life she plans on living.

There's just one being standing in her way. A grudge holding desert deity who has made an art form out of making her life hell.

Reece of the Desert Lands is a god unused to being defied, and he has a very long memory when it comes to those who wronged him. Angel is the one he blames for the worst loss in his life, and he'll never let her forget it. Their history is tragic and bloodied, and the pair is set to clash one more time, especially when they end up trapped in the very spot where they lost it all. A meeting of the dynasties in the Delfora, the ancient desert lands, will force them to the place it all began.

Here they will learn that sometimes the past defines your future. And that there is a fine line between love and hate.

Note: This is a stand-alone in the Shadow Beast world and does not end on a cliff-hanger. It is full-length, and it is advised to listen to the first three in the Shadow Beast Shifters series first (Rejected, Reclaimed, Reborn). This is an enemies-to-lovers story, with action, snark, antiheroes, and steam. It is recommended for 18+ due to storyline and situations.

Deserted

A great second love story as Angel comes to terms with her losses, and Reace finally forgives her. After many battles with each other they join forces and battle the awakening Gods. Read brilliantly by Marnye Young and Jakobi Diem.

Good but too similar

So I liked it but
Heck it it makes sense that it's "shadow the second" Becuase it might as well have been "Mira the second" as well. I loved Angel in the other books and there was a lot of potential in the story about her but honestly... It was just too simple and made her weaker and uninteresting character that basically ended up being the new Mira...
I miss the other Angel and I feel like this was written too fast and too much like a repeat if the previous...
It was good but lacked in depth.

#DesertAngel

This book was amazing to read, but listening to it is even better! The characters are really bought to life by the voice actors, and the pace was fantastic.

Sad but awesome story!

I loved the story but listening to the first 3 Shadow Beast Shifters books with Mera & Shadow I feel in love with the narrators & I was deeply disappointed they changed the narrators. For about 1 minute! They were awesome! I loved this story it was sweet, steamy, & sad it hits you right in the feels!!! 5*****!!!!!!

Hate the male voice

The woman reader was wonderful but the male was irritating and left something lacking. Another male reader for all books were not enjoyable

Loved this story

I still don't know why Recee was so upset with Angel over leaving the battle all those centuries ago I was super annoyed he was part of the reason that the merry band of a holes shunned her. However, I was very happy to see them finally connect. I was so bummed with Alistor! Definitely wasn't expecting that. I wish she would have gone a little more into their past since they were best friends. They must have had a ton of adventures and I wish they would have gone I to that as they were sailing across the desert. I'm really looking forward to Simon and Luciens story.

the guy voice wasn't working

I like this book and the woman voice but the guy voice was hard to distinguish from which character was talking. they all sounded the same. I like the guy in the first three books.

If only the artwork reflected the characters

Narrators were good. the cover art could have been way better. looks nothing like the actual characters. With someone with OCD like me it threw it off.

So much was happening all the time there wasn't a second of peace. Fast paced.

Book was very good

Hearing angels story was very interesting. Only thing I’m kinda down about was, in the 3 previous books, It was a different narrator. Why didn’t they let the previous narrator read this book. It almost sounds like Angel and Mira swapped personalities. Other than that, great book.

Maturity digression.

I liked the world and concept of this series but it always annoyed me that Mera was so young minded and valley girl petulant. Immature for even the 22 yrs the character starts out as. More like a 15-16 yr old girl. However, by this fourth book she has digressed to airheaded 10-12 year old. I only finished this series because I am no quitter. I feel like the author attempts to age up the characters with ample cursing, Which usually doesn't bother me as I tend to lean towards foul mouthed myself. However, there comes a time when using curse words instead of intelligent vocabulary just makes someone sound uneducated. Which is where the character of Mera lands. It is distracting from the story of Angel, a much more interesting character and supposed to be the main character of this book. I actually wouldn't recommend this series to anyone and would likely judge someone (not really my natural proclivity) if they told me this was their favorite series. Unless of course it was a flighty 15-16 yr old child.

Best Shifter Series

I’ve read and listened to a plethora of shifter books and the Shadow Beast Series is hands down the best. I cannot wait for the next two books.
