I voluntarily received an ARC of Shadow Walker, all thoughts and opinion are my own.Shadow Walker blew me away with its originality and the depth of the world Cosgrove created on her freshman outing The story is fast paced with loads of action, danger, and heroin that is easy to like Then there are the two gorgeous brothers one good one not so good Whatever is a girl to do I ll tell you, cut the sexual tension with a knife Even I wasn t sure which one she should pick at times I had so much fun reading the story I just wanted to know what happened next and I can t wait for the next book I need to know what happens next I am giving Shadow Walker 5 Boundless Stars. Review first appeared on The Bent Bookworm I am so excited to be able to give a high recommendation to Anya Cosgrove s debut novel This book was such a fun, entertaining read.They say ignorance is bliss I say ignorance gets you killed I still miss it, though Best Things Um, the brothers Duh They re very different but they re both hot Haha Thom is the friendly, popular guy that everyone likes, and Liam is the brooding anti hero As you know by now, if you ve read my blog for any length of time I am ALL ABOUT the anti heroes Yes please Alana is a fun character, and I m super eager to see how she grows and matures in future books She comes around to this whole supernatural thing very quickly, and it would have been a sore point for me except that she even says in her narration that it s very odd, how easily she accepted this new world that she is suddenly thrust into So I m interested to see if that plays out in any way down the road as well The slow burn I absolutely hate insta love, and while of course it s pretty normal for any hot blooded human to feel some physical pull to an attractive other person, I don t think it s normal for a true obsession to switch on immediately THAT DIDN T HAPPEN HERE, and I am so grateful It made me enjoy the story so much The evil guy is really despicable Not just sort of nasty Like made my skin crawl in horror Which is IMPORTANT If the stakes aren t high enough, the story won t work and it worked, let me tell you Minor Complaints Love triangle Obviously that was a main point of this story, it even says it in the GR description but I really didn t think I personally would be so torn between the brothers ARGH Need details on how all this witch warlock demon magic stuff actually works, and it s origins It s explained a little, but really needs some fleshing out Hopefully in the next books Erm the cover I absolutely HATE covers with barechested men or scantily clad women Like I couldn t read a physical copy of this in public Can we please just not There s so many other cool scenes from this book that they could have chosen but that s a very small beef Just ignore the cover I cannot WAIT for the next installment of Bloody Hearts, which is titled Witch s Honor and is due out on April 11, 2019 Blog Twitter Bloglovin Instagram Google Original review This book was provided by the author through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review Thank you Anya J Cosgrove and Xpresso Book Tours Shadow Walker is the first book in the Bloody Hearts series and tells the story of Anya, Thom and Liam Shadow Walker is a slow burn Paranormal Romance read Shadow Walker was the first book I read written by Anya J Cosgrove and I m happy that I chose to read this one Shadow Walker has such an interesting story that puts you on the edge of your seat I had to know what was going to happen to the characters and I wanted to know what was happening and why it was happening.I think that Anya J Cosgrove did an amazing job, this is her debut novel and Shadow Walker is so well written I couldn t get enough of the story and the characters and I finished this book in two days, it was just that good I love the world that Anya s created and the characters are so lovable.As you may have read in the synopsis, there s a love triangle in Shadow Walker and when I first started this book I didn t know there was going to be a love triangle I have the tendency to not read the synopsis, or just glance at it and see if it interests me Most of the time I pick up a book just because of its cover So I didn t know there was going to be a love triangle, but I wasn t disappointed at all I actually really liked the love triangle, and I cannot wait to see who Anya s going to choose in the sequel Shadow Walker was an amazing read and definitely one of my favourite reads I cannot wait for the second book in the series, Witch s Honor I had the pleasure of reading this one as an advance reader s copy and it pulled me in completely I stayed up way past my bedtime The world is very detailed and well constructed, the romance is deliciously slow burn, and the heroine is strong and capable without being one of those I discovered magic and now I m the strongest user in the history of time types If you re bothered by love triangles, this one might not be for you, but I haven t read one in ages, so I was perfectly happy to root for my favorite no spoilers though I can t wait to read the sequel and feel like Alana and her little crew will become reader favorites. Copy provided by Netgalley Tour Host, in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed reading the Shadow Walker The story kept me engaged and interested I do like all the characters, but confuse on how I feel about Alana Alana has feelings for two brothers and is as confused as I am with how I feel about her I can t hate her for being the way she is with the brothers, but she did keep me on edge on how she would be with either one Tom is the perfect guy and is clueless on what exactly is going on around him Then there s his older brother Liam, who shouldn t have the feelings that he does Then there s Lana who is kissing both brothers and feeling for both Liam lights her on fire, while Tom makes her feel safe and cared for I am not a big fan of love triangles, especially when it is between brothers I love the story and the idea of it, but I don t love the relationships between the three Right now I love Tom, he is the most innocent when it comes to all 3 and I want only what s best for him I can t wait to read book 2. Reviewed on behalf of all starts when on the eve of her twentieth birthday she gets attacked and kidnapped after her father has an accident and Alana panics and she wants him well, and not knowing how she did it heals him After the ambulance goes with her parents in side Suddenly after Alana is being kidnapped then rescued by Thom and his brother Liam.Then the adventure starts even though Alana still doesn t believe that she is a witch Thom and Liam start to train Alana in physical fighting, but she finds it hard at first Thom and Liam help new witches by training them and when they can look after themselves, they go back to the real world safe The brothers were HOT I had to say that, there is a lot of jealousy between them as they both wanted Alana.That the bones of what goes on, this is action all the way and kept me mesmerized to the end The brothers were HOT I had to say that, there is a lot of jealousy When I got there, I wanted to go back and start again Great start to a exciting series. Kinda sweetThere is a slow growth narrative to Lana, an introduction to the supernatural that many Urban fantasies miss She s a normal girl who has never really been normal, and now she has to face that and it s hard She doesn t fall into fighting or even trying, she struggles, she s immature and often reckless in her disregard for things she doesn t understand In other words she IS normal, even as she is 100% as far from normal as you can get Pros relatable FMC, even if she is sometimes annoying Unique world building Liam is EVERYTHING whew, that s a man Well written Flows fairly well Cons Despite it being understandable, Lana is sometimes very annoying and childish Both a pro and a con for the narrative. Originally posted at I m surprised by how much I liked this book and how much sleep I lost while making my way through it The strange thing is that I usually dislike books that feature love triangles I think I liked it because it wasn t the focal point in the story Everything is up in the air at this point and there are important things to deal with other than deciding who the main character wants.Alana had her moments Some kick ss moments and other very whiny moments I could sympathize with her enough to let most of it roll off but she pushed her luck on various occasions I wish Alana had of a sense of humor, preferably darker and accepting of sarcasm but that s just a personal preference The author did a great job at building the mystery up from her perspective She s just as lost as the reader and it struck the right balance of mystery that didn t become unreasonably frustrating by the end.I m not sure which team I m on but I m leaning towards Liam Even though he s a demon and did really bad things both in the past and present I like his dark demeanor, overall sarcastic sense of humor and dark outlook of the world Though the hot and cold thing can go away if I have any say in it.Thom, on the other hand, is human and I m not sure how long he ll survive in the supernatural world That s probably just my pessimism speaking considering he s been entrenched in this world for most of his life and he hasn t died yet, right I love the creature concepts and the overall world the author started building in this novel I hope she continues to expand on it with future novels in this series I also liked the creature definitions that would pop up when one was mentioned Though maybe a glossary would be better suited for those in the future if the amount of different creatures starts to grow out of control.This book ended in a good good for now ending, which is a very strange statement coming from someone who hates but has learned to accept any kind of open ending and the slightest of cliffhangers in books over the years I m very invested in this story and I want to know what happens next My Favorite QuotesGhosts and demons in fiction were funny or disgusting looking but never scary I used to watch supernatural teen dramas and hope I d find my own dreamy hero Starting over was hard but staying in limbo was worse I received a complimentary copy of the book collecting secrets from the author via Voracious Readers Only a very gripping book that sucks you in and you need to know what it happening next I hope this is a start of a series and i Can t wait to read the next one.
