Overview

Nina is normal Florida girl with a job and a life and a grandmother she adores. But lately she’s been having disturbing dreams. Dreams of a man with a shadowed face—a man filled with pain and need and desire only she can slake. She fears him but at the same time, the dreams leave her breathless with need. Who is this dark stranger and what does he want of her?

Reddix is a Touch Kindred with an inverted Touch Sense—he can’t touch with his mind like others of his kind. Instead, he is doomed to endure their emotions like a physical invasion every time he’s around anyone. Desperation drives him to kidnap Nina—the girl he has been dreaming of. But he doesn’t take her out of love but as a sacrifice to one who claims she can cure his affliction.

Snatching Nina from her job, Reddix takes her on a journey to the stars that ends in disaster. Now, marooned on a strange planet they will have to learn to work together in order to survive. Can Nina forgive Reddix’s attack and gain his trust enough to heal him…or will his face remain forever Shadowed?

Okay so call me slow, late, visually impaired, or whatever but I recently just discovered the Kindred series. How is that possible? Well I was in school and most books I read were from recommendations. Lately I started following authors that my other book friends follow and Evangeline Anderson was one of the authors. So there was a post about ARC for Shadowed and I JUMPED at it!! Unbeknownst to me this book was part of a series! But that did NOT deter me from reading this book. The story of Reddix a Kindred male with RTS syndrone and an earthling woman named Nina completely sucked me in. I literally longed for my lunch hour at work to find a little corner and read to my hearts delight for 60 minutes. I would rather not give TOO much away and allow you to read the story yourself; however, the story of this Kindred man and earthling woman who meet in a very unconventional way (both figuratively and literally), who are drawn to each other when it seems that all odds are against them, who have a visceral need and desire for one another, and are finally pushed over the edge due to a mistake captivated me. Call me a sucker if you will for enjoying a good happily ever after ending, but that was NOT the reason I was drawn into the story. I was drawn into the dysfunction, the complexity of the situation, the internal fight between right and seemingly wrong, the sinister swamp witch, along with overcoming fear to move forward. I was under the impression that the book had ended in a cliffhanger but I am excited to know that there will be a ninth installment in the series. If you are silly like me, sure you can read this book if you want, but I would strongly recommend reading the glossary of term first to better understand the Kindred terminology. Otherwise, I plan to read book one through book seven and patiently wait for book nine.

3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Nina is having a pretty normal day when the almost seven foot tall Kindred walks in and kidnaps her. He does seem familiar though, but he can’t possibly be the man she has been dreaming about; the man who scares and arouses her at the same time. Reddix, a Touch Kindred, needs a the blood of a woman with a pure heart and healing hands if he is going to cure his Reverse Touch Syndrome (RTS), which means he can feel everyone’s emotions physically on his skin. But he never expects the Earth woman to capture his heart and his lust with her strength and compassion. But without the cure her blood will provide he will die, but can he sacrifice the only woman who he could ever love? Another Kindred book! I love this series, with each new book I am treated to a smorgasbord of alien delights, I have had fangs, double cock, sexy twins and now I have Reddix, the gorgeous Touch Kindred who knows the best use for his tongue, amongst other things. This book doesn’t actually differ that much from the rest of the Brides of Kindred series, but it mixture of fun, angst and sexy is a winner for me so I don’t mind that it is slightly repetitious with its story line. What I’m reading for is the sexy alien and watching him woo the Earth girl he can life bond with and Reddix and Nina didn’t disappoint, they were great together. Her compassion soothed the rough edges of his personality and experiences and in return he loved the hell out of her. What I also like about this series is that you get to have a little catch up with the previous characters and see them welcoming the next couple into the fold lending these books the cozy sense of coming home as you greet old and new friends. If you haven’t started this series and you want something with humour, steamy alien sex and lots of fun, then you need to give Brides of Kindred a go, it will leave you with a smile on your face and a longing to be abducted by the alien man of your dreams!

Shadowed is book 8 in the Bride of the Kindred series by Evangeline Anderson. This story is about Riddick and Nina We get to go on the journey of these two to see if Riddick’s debilitating condition will keep him from ever finding love with Nina the pure of heart. As with all of the other stories this one is intertwined with the previous. We get updates on Kat, Lauren, Lissa, Saber, Sylvan, and some of the other former characters. I enjoy that aspect of the series. Although this installment is about Riddick and Nina, she weaves the stories around each of the other characters so that they are a cohesive unit. I do feel that in order to fully understand this book you do need to have a working understanding of the other Kindred books. The author introduces us to a new villain Xandra the swamp witch. I can’t wait to read book 9 to see where she takes this latest antagonist. As always, I love the idea of big strong alien warriors who love their women with a voraciousness that cannot be matched. This makes for extremely steamy sex. Nina and Riddick’s story is no exception. In this book there are new characters that I am sure that we will see again, new villains that are stirring things up for the future installments, lots of sex and sexual tension, new worlds that are being explored, a felony and personal sacrifice. If that doesn’t make a good love story, I don’t know what does. This book is up to par with the rest and is a very good read if you are into the whole erotic sci-fi genre.
