Shadow walker (Bloody Hearts Series) by Anya J Cosgrove
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A newborn witch is rescued by two smoking-hot brothers. Can she unravel their dark secrets? Or will she lose her soul trying?
Alana sucks at witchcraft. Healing, telepathy, seeing through illusions… she can’t master any of it.
Sparring with the six-foot-three muscular Walker brothers doesn’t help her focus. Alana’s not about to let herself fall for a man—or a demon—especially not the ones that abducted her in an attempt to save her life.
When a bitter demon learns of Alana’s existence, he’ll stop at nothing to possess her and drive a wedge between the two brothers. If Alana can’t learn to use her powers, she’ll die. If she can’t discern illusion from reality, she’ll lose her mind.
Nothing stays black and white in a world full of shadows.
Demons, witches, forbidden love… visit the otherworld today.
REVIEW: The back cover was what drew me in, it sounded really interesting.
Alana is a twenty year old student, her life is pretty ordinary, and like most twenty year olds, she has a crush on someone, they do art classes together, and although they are chatting, Alana would like it to be more.
And when she finds out she’s not really that ordinary, at first she won’t believe it, but with monsters chasing her, who can she turn to ?
Thom only wants to help Alana, yes he’s attracted to her, but he’s trying to fool himself it’s only a job. He’s helped plenty of other witches, but this time it’s different.
Liam is or was a witch hunter, finding and draining them for their blood, his masters trained him to do his job, but no longer, he is free, but how did he get his freedom ? He has no compassion in him, he fights his demon side on a daily basis. The witches blood calls to him whenever he is near Alana, or any witch. And after rescuing Alana, using her blood to escape, he has once again turned back into the monster he fought so hard to escape from.
The walker brothers rescue and train witches, and are probably the best bet in Alana’s training, they won’t take any of her excuses, and as she’s being stalked by demons, she will need an insight into the demon mind.
Alana can’t get the hang of her magic, even the simplest of things are proving difficult for her. But if she doesn’t then she can’t go home, but she has only just come into her powers, Thom explains that until she learns to hide her powers she can’t go home !!! But in all honesty, Alana can’t go home anyway, (demons will be on the look out for her, and will use family and friends to find her) so she’ll be given a new identity and set up
Somewhere new !!!!
And the attraction between Thom and Alana is a slow progression, she really likes him, and Thom is warming up to her. But the thing with her and Liam is totally different, it’s interesting to read 😉
But how will the attraction continue? Will she choose ? And what about the demon that is stalking her ?
