Overview

Her lover is back from the dead…but now there’s hell to pay.

The Shadow Slayers, Book 2

When Kara Reed learns her bondmate, Julian, is truly dead, and that Gavin has seemingly skipped town, she figures things have hit rock bottom. But soon, a string of bizarre accidents has her doubting those closest to her. And to make matters worse, the demon-king’s brand carved into her best friend Abbey’s stomach is deteriorating by the day.

Then a powerful coven of witches issues Kara an ultimatum. Bring them the blood of a true fallen angel—the only thing that will heal Abbey—or die. Kara would do anything to help her friend. Problem is, the only fallen angel she’s seen lately is the disoriented black-wing who attacked her scouts. One who looks suspiciously like Julian. Getting his blood might be easier if he was more interested in kissing her than killing her.

Caught between a coven of vengeful witches and a murderous dead lover, Kara must deliver the blood, heal the slow poison of Abbey’s brand, and save Julian from being consumed by the Abyss. But to do this, she may need the help of the one man she swore never to trust again…Gavin.

Warning: This book contains an angry demon returning from the dead, a clan lord hiding a terrible secret, and a hunted heroine cracking open a can of whoop-ass. Watch out for creepy kitties, exploding bad guys, and some very sudsy shower sex.

    Highly recommend the Shadow Slayers Series from Cassi Carver.

    Be sure and check out the first title Slayer's Kiss. Shadow Rising is an exciting addition to the series.

    This is the second book in The Shadow Slayers series by Cassi Ca

    This is the second book in The Shadow Slayers series by Cassi Carver.  I came across this series when the first one, Slayer's Kiss, was offered from free back in early April.  I liked it.  

    This story opens about 4 months after the ending of book 1, Slayer's Kiss.  Julian is believed to be dead and Gavin tells Kara that he wants to keep a relationship with her, but then disappears.  Jaxon, the silver wing that Kara rescued has hit it off with her best friend Abbey.  They are practically inseparable.  But since Abbey's wound still hasn't healed and Jaxon acts as her security blanket, Kara tries to be happy for them.

    After a series of incidents and accidents that nearly take Kara's life, Tray convinces Kara that her life might actually be in danger.  Just what she needs to deal with, especially with the Northwestern Coven holding her responsible for Abbey's wounds.  It is when Kara is finally taking things seriously and realizing that she might be in danger that a black wing, looking exactly like her lost love Julian shows up.

    He looks like Julian, but has none of Julian's memories.  He just knows that Kara smells right and he likes the way she says his name.  He feels safe with her.  When Gavin returns and meets Julian, Gavin says that Julian is the first of the prophecized Shadow Risings.  A Son of the Sky rising from death with the power of their father.  Basically a silver wing dying and rising as a black wing. And they have to get him to the Shadowlands quickly, or he may survive.

    Oh, this book went super fast and super good.  I really enjoyed how Kara and Julian rediscover one another and work on building a new relationship.  The relationship between Kara and Gavin takes a major hit.  We get to find out more about the witches and how all that works.  Plus new aspects to the world are introduced, but not quite expounded upon yet.  Book 3, Dark Flight should really shed some light on where things are going. I am giving this 4 stars on Goodreads.
