U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.
Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...
Ethan is an Immortal warrior battling to save humanity from vampires and cannot quite believe it when a young woman not only helps him battle fearsome vampires but appears to have spent the past year dreaming of him! Hey, he's happily on board to be her dreamboat, but when he realises Heather is a "gifted one", it's clear there's something else going on here; and time to take Heather to meet his fellow Guardians. Heather feels safe with Ethan but she isn't too sure about the secret group of which he is part but time is not on their side and Heather is about to be thrust into a dangerous war where not even the military can save her. Armageddon is coming their way!
Shadows Strike had it all, from action to romance, and even more information about the elusive Seth! Fans of this series will enjoy this instalment as there is so much going on and never a dull moment. Hey, the gangs all here and it's great to see favourite characters all work together in battle but there's also more playful moments to enjoy. Ethan is sweet and protective but I loved his reactions when Heather showed just how kick ass she can be! A brave heroine, a delicious hero, and so many surprises. Yes, it's fair to say I really enjoyed this one and can't wait to read more
