Great Romance + Great Action

Cade Shepherd is on top of the world as this year's Ultimate Fighting Champion. He doesn't even remember his life as Gage Dempsey, a Shadow Walker with the ability to magically transport himself from shadow to shadow. In fact, he can't remember anything before waking up in a cheap motel room ten years ago with mysterious burns on his hands--not even the woman he almost died for.

Embry Hollister has picked up the pieces of her life, learned to control her ability to generate flame, and now works an enforcer for the Council of Races. But when her father is captured by the human military and the Council refuses mount a rescue mission, Embry has no choice but to go rogue. All she has to do is find the man with the new name and new life who was completely wronged by her people, give him back the memories they stole, convince him to join her on what's probably a suicide mission, and hope that after ten years of living as a regular guy he still remembers what her father taught him.

And after that, she just has to leave him. Again.

Forsaken by Shadow flawlessly blends romance with a non-stop action story, set in a world filled with three-dimensional characters and fascinating other-worldly detail. It's a story that pulls you in from its first pages and doesn't let up until the finish. Highly recommended.

I found this author through a guest post on the blog of another indie author I really like and mistakenly thought the writing would be of comparable quality. This story was one eye-roll after another, starting in Chapter 1 with a character looking in a mirror for an excuse to describe himself and some really inconsistent "amnesia," horribly overdone dialect, and a military base with such lax security, they'll invite anybody in to wander around unsupervised and discover the top-secret goings-on there, just to hit the highlights. The immature writing style and faulty logic from beginning to end guarantee I won't be reading this author in the future.
