Want, need, pain, and joy were emotions Shade had never known existed before Lily. He knew the first time he saw her face that she was going to change his life forever. The thing he hadn’t expected was how hard it would be to hide who and what he was from her. Each step he took out of the shadows revealed more of himself, until only one secret remained. Shade arrogantly believed he could help heal the wounds from her past, but now it was his own past that was trying to tear them apart. To keep Lily, Shade would have to use the very skills he had been trying to hide from her. The skills that made him a killer … a soulless monster.
I just want to clarify before I begin telling you my thoughts on Shade by Jamie Begley that anything I say past this statement will never do this book justice. I truly believe there aren’t any words in any language to accurately state how magnificent this book was.
As soon as I got wind that Jamie Begley was coming out with another book featuring Shade and Lilly, with it being in Shade’s point of view, having those private moments we didn’t get to see in the previous books, and also the continuation of their story after Cash’s Fight, I knew that this book would freaking break me. I knew no matter how Jamie did the story I was going to be changed forever, and I was right. As I am writing this review a day after it was released and approximately five minutes after finishing Shade I want to crawl back into its pages and experience it all over again, and I wouldn’t even skip the ending that had tears rolling down my face.
I couldn’t have asked for a better book. I never imagined that all the questions I had would have been answered, all the mysteries that had some light shed on them, and lastly, but most importantly, a love that would be imprinted onto my heart forever. Out of all the books that I have read Shade has been deemed by me as the 2nd greatest love story I’ve ever read. I will love and cherish this book.
A couple of things that haven’t (or have) changed for me in this series are:
- I loath Bliss even more
- Lucky doesn’t deserve Willa (this is a new discovery)
- Killyama is still a much-loved mystery to me
**I promise you these aren’t spoilers.
I don’t tell people what books they should buy because everyone’s different and I don’t’ feel comfortable doing that. In the case of Shade whether you have read Shade’s Fall or the other books in Jamie Begley’s Last Riders series give it a serious chance. Don’t just put it on your TBR list to collect dust, when you finish the book (s) you are reading now please plan on purchasing this. Yes, its on the expensive side (not too expensive) but for 800+ pages it’s well worth the price I promise you that.
All the Shade and Lilly fans out there I’m pretty sure we’re all thinking the same thing… “This book has exceeded my expectations by 1,000!”
Whether it’s Train’s or Lucky’s story next I will definitely be reading, nothing could keep me away.
