CLICK TO PURCHASE AS EBOOK! Lux Sariel is lost after a battle that had his lover killed due to his own carelessness. Determined to never care about another again, he is told to go with werewolf Arygon and find his enemy’s sister for she brings either salvation or destruction to the world of humans, vampires and werewolves. With the fate of the world on his shoulders, Lux finds that the Goddess has a plan for all her children and that includes the mating of three people who find a love so powerful it rocks the worlds of vampires and werewolves to the core.

LUX IN SHADOW is the second book in Ms. Alexander’s Children of the Goddess series and I have to say it surpasses the first book, Regina in the Sun. Ms. Alexander delves into the world she created full of Trueblood vampires, Shadow werewolves and the humans caught in between them. I have to say this is one hot story and Ms. Alexander doesn’t disappoint her readers either. The fast paced action, multi-dimensional characters and some wonderful hot sensual sex scenes will keep you captivated and squirming in your seat. I loved the dynamics between Lux, Arygon and Slyvian. These two strong males found a woman as strong as them and I loved how she kept them on their toes with her unexpected antics. Ms. Alexander creates such vivid characters that I was enthralled from the first page to the last. She runs the gamut of emotions as Lux gets over his guilt from not keeping his lover safe from harm to finding himself mated to not one but two people who he has grown to love above anyone else.

LUX IN SHADOW is a story that will reach all your emotions as Ms. Alexander keeps the action coming and the passion on simmer throughout the story. I do have to warn that there are some M/M, M/M/F scenes that some may not enjoy. I do recommend that you read the first book, Regina in the Sun first before starting this one as each book seems to capitalize on the former book. Ms. Alexander definitely delivers a story that will keep you highly entertained and eager for more. I am looking forward to starting the third book, Twilight Guardian, soon.
