Review: Shadow’s Soul by Jami Gray

The Blurb
Raine McCord has no problem taking down the monsters of the world, it’s one of the reasons she’s so good at her job. So playing bodyguard to Cheveyo, head Magi of the Northwest, as he consults with the Southwest Kyn should be an easy assignment. Unfortunately, the simple task turns into a nightmare when Cheveyo is kidnapped and Raine is left for dead by one of the Kyn’s most feared beings, a Soul Stealer.

The Stealer’s attack leaves lasting wounds, undermining Raine’s confidence as a warrior and damaging her unruly magic. Her ability to heal her mind and spirit hinges on the one man who can touch her soul, Gavin Durand. Compelled to face the emotions raging between them, they must embrace not only their stormy relationship but their evolving magic to escape the twisted threads of murder and betrayal to find Cheveyo.

As Raine and Gavin come together and begin to unravel the complex web of secrets and hidden vendettas haunting the Southwest Kyn, they discover unsettling new truths that threaten their very existence.

My review
Jami Gray is a phenomenal writer. If I could push her onto the NYT bestselling list, I totally would because that’s where she belongs. She knows how to set the reader inside of the story, as if it’s happening around them and not just in the book.

I loved book one if the Kyn Kronicles - Shadow’s Soul. And I super love Shadow’s Edge. The depth of the romance between Raine and Gavin increased to a level that blew my mind. She packed the story with action and romance without taking away from either. Their relationship was powerful, on so many levels- physical, spiritual, magical, and emotional.

I have book 3 Shadow’s Moon sitting on my Kindle.  I have a feeling I’ll be losing more sleep reading that one, too.

I give Shadow’s Soul five out five interwoven threadlike (white, milk, and dark) chocolate bars.

Ms. Gray gave me a copy of the book after a little coercion. I was compelled to write a review because it’s absolutely fantastic.
