    This is by far, my favorite book of the series.  I have always loved Gabriella and was really unsure how Tes was going to pull this off without the creepy factor (she was turned pretty young even though she is super old).  Have no fears, at no point was there any creepoid factor and I actually loved Gabriella even more then before this book by the time I was a few chapters in.  Add Valin, the super hot and slightly dark Paladin and the pages sizzled with chemistry as the two come together to fight on the side of "good".  This book is part of a series and while you could read this as a stand alone, I think you would feel like you were missing out on some history as well as some of the emotional undercurrents that ran throughout the book.  If you are a fan of this series, you really should snag this one now.  I admit it, I am already waiting for the next book because I want more Paladin awesomeness asap.

    Valin is a Paladin Warrior who remains on the fringes of the brotherhood. His powers are shadows which puts him in the dark more than the light of his fellow warriors. He discovered his mate, but lost her in an explosion of light. Once he finds her he plans on never letting her go again. 




    Gabriella was made into a vampire against her will, now she fights with ½ breeds against the forces of evil. Doing everything she can to keep from turning evil, Gabriella duels with her nature ever day When the sexy Valin offers her a chance to drink from his vein, its more than she can bear. 




    Valin plays the hold no bars he-man and is constantly chasing after Gabriella to rectify his mis-steps in wooing. 




    Gabriella is battling the darkness physically as well as mentally and vacillates between accepting the affections of Valin and running for the hills. Paladin eradicates her kind, why would Valin want her? How can they ever be happy with the dark constantly pulling her toward evil?




    Prince of Shadows was a fast paced, action filled story with an electrifying attraction and a pretty great romance. Prince of Shadows is a fantastic story to take you away to this wonderful paranormal world of the Paladin Warriors. Definitely a book to check and a series to follow!

    Valin and Gabby's story was definitely one of my favorites. I have read the other two books in the series, and really enjoyed them as well, but this one kind of surprised me. There was an intense darkness in this book, which I expected. However, I expected it to be focused on Valin, so I found it very intriguing. While he does have his issues, Gabby seemed to be the one really struggling in this book. She is dealing with almost the exact opposite issues as Valin, but the two just work perfectly together. I loved their chemistry, and how their stories come together and overlap. I thought Valin would be the one running from a relationship and trying to keep to his private life, but he was actually very forward and open, and I loved seeing him that way. Even though he seemed different, that rough Valin-like edge was still intact. He knew what he wanted, and went for it. Paladin rules be damned! I love his sarcasm and attitude!  Poor Gabby! While Valin's main issue is his past, Gabby's main concern is her future. She is trying to stay within the lonely shadows of her life, while Valin is trying to pull her out of them. Gabby's character development in this book was amazing! It went to depths I didn't even imagine for her. She can finally walk in the light, but there is a darkness consuming her. There were so many surprises in this book. I think I held my breath through the entire ending, especially the battle. Holy cliffhangers! I can't wait to find out about Annie and the knives! Bennett managed to slip under my radar until now. I want to know more about him too! I was a little confused about Logan, but a quick glance at book #2 cleared that right up. Once again Tes Hilaire has done a magnificent job!

    Entertaining

    The story of Gabby and Valin was entertaining and enjoyable. The series does get better with each book released. I will definitely look forward to the next one.

    Boring sequel. Not even worth 1 star rating :(

    The characters waste too much time talking, and not enough time fighting/reacting.

    Don't waste your time trying to read it.
