Review ~ Prince of Shadow (Moonlight #8) by Nancy Gideon

A gentle female held hostage in a deadly play for power, Kendra Terriot’s only means of survival for herself and her family is to play to a careful courtship game. The one she chooses from her clan’s dangerous heirs will inherit the coveted crown, keeping her their prisoner forever . . . unless she can retain her virtue until rescue arrives.

Favored son of their brutal Shifter leader, the only calm in Cale Terriot’s violent world is a childhood love for his delicate distant cousin whom he’s pledged to make his queen. With Kendra at his side, he knows he can become the kind of ruler his clan needs, but first he must learn how to become the kind of mate she desires.

In a treacherous race for control, where weakness means death, Cale must prove he’s not the beast his beauty fears and still protect her, especially once her unrequited love returns to free her. The only way to win her respect could mean surrendering his throne.

The only way to win her heart could mean letting her go…even if she no longer wants to be saved.

As a long-time fan of Nancy Gideon's Moonlight series, I was excited to get an early peek at Prince of Shadows. Even though, this is the eight in the series it can be read as a standalone without missing a beat. This book is set in Lake Tahoe and features the Terriot Clan. Cale and Kendra were childhood friends until a tragic event tore them apart. Now 18-years-later, they find themselves trapped forced together in a deadly battle for the Terriot crown.

The story was unique and intriguing grabbing my attention from page one. Ms. Gideon has written another incredible paranormal romance. She then proceeded to fill it with plenty of remarkable characters, including the protagonists, and the numerous unmated Terriot princes - which hopefully will result in potential future stories!!! This was a very effortless read; the flow and pace were exceptional. In a genre flooded with an ever increasing number of formulated tales. It was refreshing to read such a well-written story in this analogous world.
