ARC Review: Shadow Fallen by Sherrilyn Kenyon

For centuries, Ariel has fought the forces of evil. Her task was to protect the souls of innocent mortals when they die. Captured by a powerful sorceress, she is transformed into a human who has no memory of her real life or calling.

And is plunked into the middle of the Norman invasion of England.

Cursed the moment he was born with a "demonic deformity," Valteri wants nothing of this earth except to depart it and will do his duty to his king until then. When a strange noblewoman is brought before him, Valteri realizes he has met her before…in his dreams. When others come for her, bringing with them preternatural predators, he is faced with a destiny he had no idea was waiting. One he wants no part of.

The truth is that Valteri isn’t just a knight of William the Conqueror. He is the son of one of the deadliest powers in existence, and if he doesn’t restore Ariel to her place, she is not the only one who will be in peril. The world itself hangs in the balance, and he is the necessary key to hold back the powers of evil. But only if he can find a way to work with the woman who stands for everything in the universe he hates.
It's been a good long time since I've read anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I used to love her books and the second they came out I'd run to read them. Then life got in the way and I found myself farther and farther away from reading them. Since she hasn't written as much in the past few years I'm not too far behind thankfully. 

When I saw Shadow Fallen come up for review I knew I had to read it. 

I'm glad I gave it a try. I do enjoy her characters and I think Kenyon is a wonderful writer that has a habit of drawing in her readers and keeping them wrapped up in her story. Which happened with Shadow Fallen. Right away I got into the story and enjoyed it. I felt like it was just yesterday that I read her. I loved both Ariel and Valteri. 

Right away you can feel the heat that these two have for one another. They mesh perfectly. You want to know their story. I will admit that at times you get slightly tired of their conflict with each other. It's tiresome at times. But when they are working together the story flows perfectly and you enjoy going on the ride with them. 

As much as I really enjoyed it the cover didn't work for me at all. It looks homemade. Not the best but thankfully I really enjoyed what was in it. Have any of you read her?


  1. I was looking forward to this one but didn't like it as much as some of her other books. The first half was kind of boring for me.
