I absolutely loved Shadowed Strength by Wendi L. Wilson I ended up ordering the second and third books while in the middle of this. I ended up reading all three books under a week. I would absolutely recommend reading this. There are some triggering parts when she is attacked, but it shows how easy it is to get attacked. Also shows you don’t walk home from a party or anywhere by yourself while its dark out. You shouldn’t go the faster way just because it’s faster, go the safer route even if it takes twice as long. This was a fast read, I just devoured it. This definitely gets five stars from me.
