To reach the light, first they have to face the Shadows….
Riley has been a Healer long enough to know that some wounds can’t be mended. It doesn’t matter how much her Shadows want him, or how much she misses him, James tore their love apart with his lies and she simply can’t risk taking him back. But that doesn’t mean she’s going to stand aside and watch him sacrifice himself either….
James messed up. Badly. He betrayed the woman his Shadows chose, his friends, and his oath to protect the light. He doesn’t believe he’ll ever be worthy of Riley's forgiveness, but he still loves her all the same. And he will do everything he can to keep her safe. Even if it means trading his own life to guarantee hers.
There’s nowhere left to hide and time is up. Can Riley give James a second chance? Or will they stand apart, divided, while everything they love crumbles?
Shadow Healer, the final book in the Blood Shadows trilogy, is an adult paranormal romance for readers who love fated soulmates, second chances, found family, fast-paced adventure, and plenty of spice. Each book follows a different couple and has its own guaranteed HEA. Check author’s website for CW’s.

This is the final book in the Blood Shadows trilogy, and not a standalone. The romance in this installment focuses on James and Riley, who have had more than their fair share of obstacles put in their way. Separately and together. The characters are so well developed, sympathetic and likable, from all the books. The story was engrossing, well paced and full of twists and turns. It is an intense read, too, full of emotion. It’s really a book to dive into!
