Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ricco Ferraro leads the way through the twists and turns of this novel. We first met Ricco in book 1, Shadow Rider, he was the slightly standoffish brother with a secret that turned him darker during his Shadow Rider training in Japan when he was a teenager. Thankfully, we didn't have long to what to have that mystery revealed to us. Ricco's story starts when he meets the perfect match to his Shadows. But she's also clearly been sent after him. Was she sent by those in Japan that have been threatening Ricco and his family?
Our heroine's been alone for a long time, surviving the worst home situation. Now she's ready to prove herself an honorable Shadow Rider, will she follow through on her assignment, betraying the Shadow Rider vows? But something else is going on too. The Ferraro's are all being targeted now, not just Ricco. Can they unravel the mystery behind their current situation? And will they all survive?
I am really enjoying this new series. There are some similarities between this and the Ghostwalker series, in the characters and code they live by and since I absolutely LOVE that series I new I would like this one. The Ferraro family and the Shadow Rider community is revealed more in this novel than the first one, which was developing the premise of Shadow Riders more than anything. The family relationships, and insight into their parents and the other Shadow Rider families was really interesting. This was overall a bit of a slower paced novel compared to the first one, with more mystery intertwined. The villain reveal was really well done, and I didn't suspect it until right before the reveal. Nice!
I received a ARC of this novel from Netgalley.
