#REVIEW ~ The Shadows by J.R. Ward

22571583
The Shadows (Black Dagger Brotherhood #13)
by J.R. Ward

Two brothers bound by more than blood fight to change a brutal destiny in the heart-wrenching new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward.


Trez “Latimer” doesn’t really exist. And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. Sold by his parents to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, Trez escaped the Territory and has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years- all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on... except for his brother, iAm.

iAm’s sole goal has always been to keep his brother from self-destructing- and he knows he’s failed. It’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around... but by then it’s too late. The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating.

Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others- or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything. Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice...



REVIEW : Sadly disappointed! 
THREE STARS
***
It's very hard for me to give this book a 3 star review!
I LOVE the #BlackDaggerBrotherhood series!
...and I really looked forward to reading the Shadows story!
The book started slow for me, I really had a hard time getting into the story
 it just didn't seem to flow smoothly.
I normally plow through a #BDB book in a matter of two days tops!
This one I found easy to put down ... it took me two weeks to get through it =(  

I'm confused that Layla and Xcor felt like such a big part of the first 1/2 of the book and then .... nadda! 
the last 1/3 of the book ... OMG! it was emotional and intense
...i cried a few times and got angry too
... i couldn't put the book down! 

So while I love this series .... this was a bit of a let down! 
I still love this series and I accept that we can't always love all the stories within it ... i look forward to reading the next book ... The Shadows book does seem to be setting us up for The Beast

This book is available in book stores everywhere
