Publisher's Summary

I used to hunt witches. Now I live with one. 

To further complicate things, my past as a supernatural bounty hunter doesn’t exactly make me popular in these new circles I’m running in.

Shocker, I know. Someone wants me dead. 

He wants me to stay in Nathalie’s apartment and be safe while he handles the threat, all while holding Bree’s future over my head.

Not gonna happen. To say I’m f--ked is an understatement. But I’ve been in worse spots before. Lucifer may be gone, but the corruption of magic isn’t. I have enemies everywhere. And this time, they’re going to know what it means to burn. 

Some things are worse than the devil. To save Bree, I’ll become one of them. 

If you can’t get enough of books by Ella Summers, Annette Marie, Shannon Mayer, Deborah Wilde, K.F. Breene, Jeaniene Frost, Kelly St. Clare, and Linsey Hall, then dive right in to the dangerous depths of New Chicago. Beware of headstrong heroines with snark. These ladies don’t bark. They bite.

Wow!

Okay I didn’t think the story could get even better after that first book but damn! This second book made the series even better. I love piper so much and Ronan well hot hot hot. Piper is still trying to find out how to save her sister but she’s also revealed she isn’t as human as she’s been pretending to be. I love the action and the heat in the story! I also need the next book desperately with how this one ended. Also Natalie and Piper are a lot of fun together. I definitely want to know even more about all these characters.

Not as good but still great.

This was still very enjoyable but I felt like Lucifers character became almost whiny before he died. It just seemed odd that he was such a strong character leading up to his waning demise but he actually turned into a whining woe is me before his death. Just an extreme change for a demon who was so strong. Anyhow the story was good and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how the sisters story grows. Looks like she might’ve been happy in her new world prior to being taken back to Earth.

another intriguing entry

Haunted by shadows draws you back into dystopian new Chicago almost instantly. Piper growth in this series is exactly what the story needed. Through the events of the story she slowly becomes less of a gun toting hot head, to a well rounded being who has started to let herself be cared about by others and cares for them in return. Kel was able to build this new world even further and create more new lure to intrege the reader. I will happily wait for book 3, I would not want the writing rushed, because I can tell this world is about to explode again I'm the best way.

Intense

What a rush! Piper & Ronan are back and things are hotter than ever!
Piper is still trying to find out how to save her sister, but the supernatural world has other plans.

Non stop action, with twists & turns & one hell of a cliffhanger

The battle for New Chicago continues

Full disclosure, I wasn’t sure what would happen in book two and went in cautiously. I got drawn into the world of New Chicago and Piper’s fight to save Bree and herself. I ended up loving book two even more than the first book and I can’t wait for book three!

Piper + Ronan has a steamy enemy to lovers feel to it. Piper tries to keep the Harvester at arm’s length as long as she can, but he keeps pursuing her, even into danger.

The witch coven vs Natalie and Piper revealed a whole other layer of questions for me, but I also loved seeing their friendship grow.

I loved the 2 narrators, I felt like they did an amazing job embodying the characters and bringing the book to life.

If you love a strong female character that won’t stop fighting for her family, friends, and herself, you will love this series.

action packed, dark magic and demons!

I am loving this series, the non-stop action carries on from the events in the first book and kept me glued to my headphones!

With the disappearance of Lucifer, a new and darker evil distracts Piper from her quest to save her sister Bree, for which she'll need to draw on all her strength, plus trust demon Ronan and witch Natalie to survive it.  Haunted by Shadows continues the slow burn relationship between Ronan and his in denial atma Piper.  It was intriguing, dark, bloody and mystical with so many twists and turns.

I loved seeing Piper grow and develop. She's closed off emotionally, snarky, full of anger and determination and has always hated magic, but calm, serene Natalie opens her eyes to her prejudice and we discover a lot more about the witch too. Their banter gives some light relief amongst the angst, drama and suspense unfolding around them.

My main wish following the first book was more of Ronan and my wish came true wahoo! There was a lot more of the delectable, powerful, dominating, dark and dangerous demon which meant of course more from the narrators sexy, deep voice, perfect for Ronan.  He is cunning and single minded in his desire for Piper but we see a lot more to him and what he is about as well. As he and Piper grow closer, their chemistry grows more and more fiery and you know it will ignite into flames once Piper gives in to their connection.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, both narrators were excellent and really gave life to all the characters. Can't wait to find out what happens next after that jaw dropping ending!

Amazing

I thoroughly enjoyed this listen and binged it. I just cannot get enough of Kel's writing. The narrators....what a fantastic job they did and I easily slipped into the world of fantasy for a few hours.

Can't wait for the next installment.

Piper's story gets better and better

Once again Kel spins a tale leaving you hooked on every word. The story of Piper unfolds, filling the world and lore, leaving me wanting to know more. I cannot wait to find out how Piper's story progresses, and with that cliffhanger you bet I'll be obsessing until I do. The voice acting is once again perfect and immersive, all the actors have done a brilliant job. If you haven't started the series yet then cancel your plans for the weekend and give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

A brilliant adaptation

This is a brilliant adaptation it hooked me from the very beginning. I could not stop listening to Pipers story. Piper has more enemies' to deal with. Some she did not see coming. Nat has issues with her family and Ronan has the patience of a saint! The adventure and intrigue continue, the sarcasm and heat between the two leads, is brilliant.
Full me once shame on you
Full me twice eat lead.
The choice of narrators is perfect, I am looking forward to book three in May.

Everything is to love in this book, from...

The story to the author’s acknowledgment!! Truly this is my favorite series from Kel as to yet.
It has it all! And the “more than love” story between Piper and Ronan just makes me swooonnn !
He is the most thoughtful demon I’ve read about this year!
Kel did a great job at describing the push and pull that exists between them and also love, loyalty, support that one needs to just believe in a better future.
I loved everything in this story and I can’t wait to get my hands on my physical copies get them signed and give a bear hug to Kel 💛💛💛

A super second part to the series

I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest review.

I'm really enjoying this series.
I love the way Piper continued to develop in this book, she's a really interesting, complicated character. Nat, Ronan and Lucifer, and the relationships between them all, are great too.
As with book one, there was plenty of action, and the story was really absorbing and entertaining. I enjoyed learning more about the world and how it worked, and having some mysteries from book one uncovered. The plot really progressed here, and things are set up for what looks to be a really interesting book 3.
