    OMG words cannot express how much I LOVED Shadowed ! Jase Kayrs

    OMG words cannot express how much I LOVED Shadowed ! Jase Kayrs is the youngest of the Kayrs brothers; always fun, carefree, and precisely deadly....that is until he is captured and tortured for nearly 5 years by the Demon race. Jase's book picks up 5 years after he was rescued and readers find him still emotionally wounded, angry, and intent of revenge. So intent on revenge that he's willing to do just about anything, including mating a woman he doesn't love, to further his cause of taking down the demons that caused him so much pain.

    Brenna Dunne is the 8th sister, born after the 7th sister of a 7th sister. She has spent her life feeling like a freak because there's never been an 8th child born to the 7th sister after a 7th daughter has been born. I know, totally confusing but significant. Brenna has been dying for the past 10 years, after being poisoned by planekite, an element found in Russia that is deadly to witches. Believing she has no other option to save her own life, Brenna enters into an arranged mating with Jase to see if mating a vampire will alter her blood cells and tissues, ultimately removing the poison from her body.

    From the start of their relationship, Brenna and Jase have an easy friendship, born of their interactions with one another over several centuries. Brenna reminds Jase of who he use to be and he can't help but feel warmth while in her presence. When an ancient prophecy is unveiled that ties Brenna to the winter solstice and the Pagrurus Comet, Jase will stop at nothing to keep her safe while also hoping that her coming into immense power can somehow restore his power over the elements.

    As I have gushed several times before, I love the sense of family that Zanetti breathes into her characters. Jase's emotional state has taken it's toll on all of the brothers and they unfortunately have buried their feelings and emotions in an effort to allow Jase to find a way to move forward without added pressure from his family. No longer do the brothers solve their problems with Jase by beating the crap out of him, instead he is treated as if a slap up side his head will break him.

    The parts of this book that I loved most was Jase and Brenna slowly understanding what they mean to one another. Jase if the typical dominant, overbearing, and demanding Kayrs brother, however Brenna is having none of his dominance without throwing major attitude and challenging his every demand. Being a counselor, I also loved Jase's interactions with Lily the Prophet. She was hilarious and her methods for getting Jase to accept his angry, as well as his feelings for Brenna were unconventional but effective. There's much that happens in this book including more on the Janie, Zane, and Kalin front (even though we STILL have no clue what the hell Zane is....blows smoke out my ears and nose!) and Zanetti definitely ratcheted up the suspense in this book. If you have been a fan of the series, Shadowed is definitely not to be missed.

    I feel in love with this series and ever since the ending of Twi

    I feel in love with this series and ever since the ending of Twisted we can see that Jase is in a bad shape and needs some hepl after all the drama he went throught with the Demons, but now the world is a little different and the Kairs are in war with pratially everybody. That’s why the king asked hm to mate with Brenna, to unite even more the vampires with the witches.

    Brenna is in a bad shape and can’t acess her powers anymore, she has a few more months of life and this mating is possibly the last chance she has to fight the poison inside her, but Jase also has a problem and since he was kidnapped he can control the elements. This mating was supposed to help the both, but things are not that sinple and now everybody is after Brenna.

    I liked this book so much. It was amazing seeing all the Kayrs family again and Jase was such a ncie guy even after everything. Brenna was a huge help for him, and these two are so cute together. The war is still going strong, but the demons and the kurjans are losing more each day.

    Jase is still struggling with the years in captivity by the demo

    Jase is still struggling with the years in captivity by the demons; Brenna was infected several years ago with planekite and it's killing her. She's got a chance of surviving the virus if she mates with Jase, which they do. However, soon they realize the mating didn't do anything to help Brenna.

    An antient prophecy predicts the coming of a comet that will reveal or give Brenna strong powers, the kind that can burn the universe and it's a potential answer against the virus.

    As the eighth daughter of a seventh sister, Brenna is an oddity and the Kurjan, the demons and a radical group of witches chase her.

    All this wrapped up with an hot romance makes this book a blast. It was a very nice, exciting and surprising read. Seeing again the Kayrs brothers and their mates, the love they share for each of them, how they support them all, is amazing.

    Emotionally staggering…..but a fantastic story!

    Entering into an arranged mating is a means to an end for Jase Kayrs. It will form an alliance sorely needed in the ongoing war, and hopefully strengthen powers that are currently out of his reach; but nothing will outweigh his need for retribution for 5 years spent in a living hell.
    While muscle and courage can conquer impossible barriers, and the thirst for revenge will keep you focused on your goal; what heals a tortured soul or restores a heart frozen against any form of warmth and compassion?
    My heart bled for the insurmountable pain and suffering our hero had endured, and his need to bury the experience in the depths of his memory, at the risk of losing those people he loves the most. 
    Have tissues at the ready, as the emotional impact of this story is crushing.

    I loved loved loved this book! I have been waiting and wantin



    I loved loved loved this book! I have been waiting and wanting to read Jase Kayrs book since he was taken by the demons several books ago. It was worth the wait! This book was a thrill ride from begining to end. I was sad when I was done because I wanted the story to go on. I guess that's what happens when you feel a bond with the characters in a book. Ms. Zanetti has another hit on her hands. If you don't read this book then you are missing out. Even though it is part of a series you can still read it as a stand alone.


    Jase was tormented and scared inside and out when he was held captive by demons. Now to get his magic back he must mate a powerful Witch. The problem is the Witch in question....Brenna is having problems with her own magic. Brenna was injected with a virus that is making Witches human and breaking up matings.


    Jase and Brenna are both very powerful and they are hoping that their mating can save each other before it is to late. With the Demons and other Witches all out to get Brenna, Jase realizes he is the only chance of saving Brenna once and for all. For that matter Jase needs Brenna to save him as well.

    Oh how I love it when two of my longtime favorite characters fal

    Oh how I love it when two of my longtime favorite characters fall for each other! Until the last book, Provoked, I did not foresee Jase and Brenna being a couple. There might have been hints in previous books but I get so caught up in the main couple I tend to not commit little nuances like that to memory sometimes. These two could not have been more made for each other. They both hold an enormous amount of responsibility, some of it self-assigned, some of it a product of the war and their families. Jase is still trying to recover from being help captive by the demons for 5 years. Brenna, on the other hand, is dealing with a sickness that will kill her by her next birthday. Jase's torture and Brenna's illness have rendered them powerless. There's a loophole though. Isn't there always? If they enter into a mating Brenna could be healed and they could both gain their powers back. Everyone wins! Except Brenna, a romantic at heart, does not want to enter into a marriage of convenience.

    "I'm damaged, and I'm determined to kill."
    ~Jase

    Well, the one thing these two have in common is that they have families that would do anything to save them. More than not wanting to marry for anything but love, Brenna does not want to see her family suffer. The mating is advantageous in many ways and Jase and Brenna both realize that. Jase has ulterior motives though. While he wants to save Brenna from certain death, what he wants more is to gain his powers back and take revenge on the demons who held him captive, which is his certain death. Jase and Brenna struggle throughout Shadowed with their feelings for one another. Their mating was supposed to solve their problems not create more with their undeniable passion. As much as they fight believing they can have a future together, Jase and Brenna cannot fight their attraction. And let me tell you, Jase is alpha all over! I find that couples who try to push each other away, tend to have way hotter sex. It's so impulsive, gasping and groping hands. I love it.

    "I love you with everything I am, everything I'll ever be, and with every hope I could ever dream."
    ~Jase

    I had a soft spot for Brenna since she was introduced in the earlier books, she was the eighth daughter of a seventh daughter. She isn't even supposed to exist, and she has always felt like an outcast. But Jase makes her feel like she belongs... with him. So, how is she supposed to let him gain his revenge, when it almost certainly means his death? And Jase... well he made me wonder if I even wanted to finish Shadowed. I was afraid after his trauma, that even Brenna could not keep him from self destructing. Of course I finished it but, Jase about broke my heart in the process. I am going to go out on a limb and say Shadowed was the most action packed out of the Dark Predators series. There are no slow parts, and if you start to gloss over a sentence you miss a huge plot twist. I thought with Jase's story I would feel a sense of calm, but no. Rebecca Zanetti built this story up to a peak, with several different lose ends. It's not necessarily a cliffhanger, but several story arcs are still left unanswered. We get closure for the couple, but not for the group as a whole. I have said this before, and I'm going to say it again... I am SO excited for Janie's story. She played a bigger role in Shadowed than the last couple of books. And I will say this, Ms. Zanetti about caused me heart failure at one point. Shadowed does not necessarily wrap up in nice, pretty bows. After all, it is Jase's story.. he has never been a simple character. I have no doubt that fans of the Dark Predators will love this addition, and that new comers will be intrigued enough by the hype that they will pick up the series at the beginning :)

    Happy Reading!

    I love this series and I love Jase and Brenna but this was not my favorite book. I felt it was missing something but I just can't put my finger on what it was missing. It had a great start and ending and I have to say the last third of the book was fantastic. I can't wait for Janie, Zane and Kalin's book.

    *eBook gifted by LITERAL ADDICTION in exchange for an honest review
    --Actual Rating 4.5 Skulls

    Jase Kayrs is the youngest brother, and was always the most fun loving and carefree out of all of the Kayrs'.  That is until the Demons
    captured him and tortured him for 5 long years.  Now he is out of captivity but he is not the fun loving brother that he once was.  He
    wants revenge and he also wants his powers back.  Brenna Dunne is his way to get those back and to also save her from the poison
    that is killing her.  Mating is the only way that she can be saved because the doctors say there is nothing else they can do.  But will the
    mating help either of them?  And will Jase be able to deal with what happened to him with the Demons? 

    I love this series so much and I love that there are more members of the Dark Protectors to read about along with keeping up with past
    books and characters.  There is nothing I love more than action with my romance story and Rebecca always has tons.  It makes my
    heart race, keeps me on the edge of my seat and keeps my eyes on my Kindle.  This book was hard to put down and I wanted to sneak
    my Kindle with me where ever I went at work!  If you haven't read the Dark Protectors I can't recommend them enough and you should
    definitely read from the beginning.  

    I can't wait for the next book because I really want to know more about Lilly, after reading more about her in Shadowed inquiring minds
    want to know!!

    I love this series. I love that each book flash forward a bit, so children grow up and we see past leads bonded in their mating. Once again this story is full of action, hot love scenes, and just the right amount of time spent focusing on the stories of those that are not the leads.




    I love Jase and it was nice to see him sort of get back to his old self. Sexy and a smart ass, with just a touch of brooding. He is still broken, but watching him begin to mend was nice. Brenna was a okay heroine for me. She is smart and determined, but kind of boring. She had so much going on with her, the solitice giving her power and having both a hate and fan clubs. But something was missing from her character for me. Garret being all grown up was fun, I look forward to his book. It seems like the next full novel will be Janie’s and I can’t wait!

    Shadowed (Dark Protectors #6) by Rebecca Zanetti 4 of 5 Stars A

    Shadowed (Dark Protectors #6) by Rebecca Zanetti
    4 of 5 Stars

    After being seized and tortured by demons for the past five years, vampire Jase Kayrs is broken.  Having lost his powers his sole purpose is to seek revenge on his captors.

    Witch, Brenna Dunne, is dying.  The only thing that could save her is to mate with a vampire.  Unbeknown to her, an arrangement has been made between the vampires and her coven for her to mate with Jase Kayrs.  A vampire she has once had a crush on.

    Rebecca Zanetti did an incredible job with this story.  The emotion and trials Jase and Brenna experience is moving.  I love both the characters.  You feel for what they have undergone and want them to find happiness.  Jase and Brenna are perfect for each other.

    I also, enjoyed the interaction between Jase and Brenna with their families.  Rebecca Zanetti’s character development throughout the Dark Protectors Series makes the novel that much more enjoyable. The reader can understand and relate to the characters.
