LIGHT SHADOWS -Book Review. S.L. Jennings wrote a brilliant ending to my favorite serial!

Light Shadows (The Dark Light, #3)
by S.L. Jennings 
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Twenty-one years ago, Gabriella's life was stolen from her before it even began.

Orphaned at birth and encompassed in a fortress of lies to protect her identity, she never truly understood her purpose on this earth. But now that she has ascended, embracing her destiny, the ghosts of her past have come back to haunt her.

Even with insurmountable power running through her veins, part of Gabriella is irreparably broken. And with old enemies working to destroy the tiny shred of normalcy she has left, she'll be forced to face the ugly truth about Dorian, the man she chose to love despite his darkness.

Everything she loved is a lie, and everyone she thought she knew is a stranger. And now that Gabriella is about to be thrust into the battle of her life, she discovers that she may be fighting for the wrong side.

*This is book 3 of The Dark Light Series, the highly anticipated conclusion to Gabriella and Dorian's beautifully tragic love story.

"You're my life, little girl. You die, I die with you."

Wow, I'm having a serious book hangover and character withdrawal. I'm missing these character already hard - ok Dorian that is. I was waiting over a year to read the big finale of this kickass paranormal serial and now I'm sitting here, not knowing what to read/do next. Man, what a crazy ride this book was.

We all know S.L. Jennings can write, oh boy can she write, but her paranormal serial is off the charts AWESOME! In this highly anticipate conclusion she went all out. She packed it with love (love that bordered on insanity), action, heartache, loss, grieve, growth, surprises.... dang, just everything. It made me feel; her characters and story made me feel in all the right and wrong places, and sometimes I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

"...Gabs - not even death would keep him from you. That's the kind of love that people spend a lifetime searching for - the kind wars are fought for. It can't even really be described as love anymore. It's insanity of the heart."

Oh how right Morgan was. Dorian and Gab's love is like them, otherworldly, and goes beyond anything and anyone. It's been one year since she saw him in this nightclub, one year that he turned not just her world but also her heart upside down.  Everything Dorian does, he does it with intensity - loving Gabs is one of it. In this year both encountered some series stuff thanks to Dorian's father, the King and the she-bitch who shall not be named. Now that Gabriella ascended and is the Dark Light (the Divine's golden child) , accepting both parts of her bloodline, the King tries his hardest to make Gabs align with him, even if this means he has to kill every single one of Gabs loved ones....oh and don't think he wouldn't do just about that..

Jennings perfectly captured not only the main characters personality growth and struggles, but also her feelings in the book. The reader gets to know Dorian, the real Dorian on such a deeper level that we can' help but fall even more for him. I was a goner ladies, no kidding. He's like the hottest dark Prince ever - and Jennings' steamy scenes were so smokin' hot that I had to take several loooong breaths to calm the f down. Dang she can write a hot scene that makes me green with envy; lucky Gabs!

The details in the book is another thing I adored. Jennings created a whole different world with different magical creatures and their caste system living among humans.
A dull moment? Nope, you won't find in this book.
I really have nothing to complain about; I absolutely loved every page.

It's not that she didn't freak me out - she did big times. But she also made me tear up and utterly sad - but I've to admit it was for the better (you'll know why when you read it). Yes, we'll experience many losses so do it like me, have a bottle of wine ready.

If you're looking for a steamy, intriguing new paranormal serial than I highly recommend those books. It's one of my all time favorite serials because it's packed with everything I'm looking for in a PNR book - sex, love, and magic. Characters to fall head over heels in love with.

"I know what true suffering is, Gabriella. And no degree of agony could ever surmount how it feels to not have you by my side."

*** 5+ 'Will Love You Beyond Death' Stars ***
