Shadow's Claim (Immortals After Dark, #13) (The Dacians, #1)Shadow’s Claim (Immortals After Dark, #13) by Kresley Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh my lordy!! This book is simply amazing! This story grabbed me by the shoulders and wouldn’t let go. From the very first page I was hooked. I love the Lore world and a lot of the characters in it, but I have to say that this is my favorite couple by far! Trehan and Bettina are completely opposite of each other, yet fate thought it would be fun to pair an assassin Prince with a halfling Queen. What follows is a funny, nail biting story of desire, yearnings, love, hate, and acceptance. Happy reading my friends!

Book Summary:
#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians: Realm of Blood and Mist, a new paranormal series following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a vampire kingdom hidden within the Lore of the Immortals After Dark. Shadow’s Claim features Prince Trehan, a ruthless master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament— to the death.


Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has spent his life serving his people—striking in the night, quietly executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman has never desired anything for himself – until he beholds Bettina, the sheltered ward of two of the Lore’s most fearsome villains.


Desperate to earn her guardians’ approval after a life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry whichever suitor prevails—even though she’s lost her heart to another. Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.


Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina’s heart is yet to come. And unleashing a millennium’s worth of savage need will either frighten his Bride away – or stoke Bettina’s own desires to a fever pitch….
