Publisher Comments:

Blessed?or cursed?with the ability to change into a sleek panther, and driven by a dark soul he?s accepted as his fate, Adrik Wilder abandons his family and his honor to pursue a life of wickedness. He excels at every vice, including kidnapping Karen Sonnet to use for his selfish purposes.

But Karen?s spirit and passion make him question the force of his family?s curse. And when a new evil emerges, Adrik must choose whether to enact revenge on his enemies and redeem his soul, or save Karen from a fate worse than death?

Review:

"The latest Dodd saga following the Wilder and Varinski clans features third brother Adrik Wilder, who, transforming into a panther, goes feral and becomes a vicious warlord. As such, he comes to strong-willed, nocturnal construction supervisor Karen Sonnet; he's soon her secret lover, then her savior in a very rocky situation. As the two maintain a complicated relationship, Adrik's evil Varinski cousins discover that Karen possesses one of the icons that the Wilders have been collecting to stop the Varinski curse. While the story is fairly inaccessible to those who have not read the previous books, readers familiar with the story will find the action brisk and immediate. Adrik's story is as intense as that of his brothers, and Karen is a tough, worthy sparring partner. Though the series' larger plot lines don't much advance, the cliffhanger ending is sure to whet appetites. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Wow! It was worth the wait. In all my imaging I wouldn't have thought up this. I loved it. Karen is perfect, she handles Adrik with honest emotion you could definatly relate to...I loved that we got to see Adrik over a period of time...to see how he changed and grew as a charactor. If you like the first two book in series...you will love this one and just think in a week the last Book ... In to the Flame will be here. Must read books from #1 to #4 to get it. But absolutly a great read. C.D. is the best at paranormal stories.

Fabulous read. It's been almost a year since book two in the "Darkness Chosen" paranormal series by Christina Dodd, but wow, "Into The Shadow" was definitely worth the wait. This series follows a family whose forebear made a deal with the devil--the ability to change into a predator in exchange for the souls of he and his descendants. After one thousand years, one family is working to break this covenant and the rest of the clan will do whatever necessary to keep that from happening. A very different take on shifters from an author I always enjoy.

Adrik is a wild one. Unlike the rest of his brothers, he relishes the thrill of the hunt and the savagery of victory. He left his family seventeen years ago to live life as he chose. Then he met her...Karen, and from that point on, all that was important was her safety.

This book is darker than Dodd's usual fare. It's a tale of love redeeming a soul fallen into darkness. The heat between these two is scorching while they both fight for precedence, neither willing to concede. What a perfect match they are. The scope of the book takes place over 2 1/2 years, so this isn't a story of instant love. They both must discover what's truly important before they are right for each other and ready to fight together. The next in this series, "Into The Flame" will be released in August 2009. I'll be waiting...
