REVIEW - Grave Shifter: (Shades of Black: Grave Distinction Series) by Gretchen Rily

Title: Grave Shifter
Author: Gretchen Rily
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Release Date: 25 March 2014
Series or Standalone: Series

Genre: Paranormal
Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Assassin Penelope always follows her gut. Left for dead by her traitorous vampire lover and a power-hungry dark lord, she's spent five centuries hiding in one small cemetery after another. But she cannot ignore a summons from the Council. The order–a sanctioned execution of the dark lord...and her ex-lover. 

Sending Penelope to the grave wasn't the first hard choice Galen made for survival. It was the first he made for someone else's. Blinded and tortured for allowing her escape, he negotiated for his life, all the while planning for redemption and revenge. 

At his villa in the Greek islands, chemistry re-ignites. She suspects he's hiding part of his plan for destroying the dark lord feeding off the power of grave shifters, but her gut says trust him. Galen's feelings for the clumsy, foul-mouthed Penelope never fade. But can he earn her forgiveness for what he's going to do next?

Buy It: Amazon


My thougts:
Entertaining story about Penelope, a grave shifter who's been in hiding for the last few centuries and the reappearance of Galen, her former vampire lover who betrayed her in the worst possible way. This is a quick read, but still there is deceit, treachery, anger, lust and love between Penelope and Galen, so why is he back after 500 years?

Some of the questions I have about this book weren't answered (who/what is the Council and what is it they do? What exactly is a grave shifter and where do fit in the paranormal world? I hope there is another book somewhere down the line that will answers these questions.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
