    One thought on “Shadow's End”

    1. DNF/On Hold @ 55%I actually have no idea why in the actual fuck I attempted reading this after 2-starring the last three full books in this series (Kinked, Night's Honor, and Midnight's Kiss).And yet I found myself still idiotically fearlessly clinging to the hope that the series would be restored to the awesomeness of books 1-3So I am either relentless in my belief in Thea Harrison or just plain dauntless in my quest for self harm. And the verdict?I have no idea, because:That's right.This book [...]

    2. Let's cut to the chasedid I like the story? Yes. Was I happy with it? No. So let me explain.I've been waiting since we first met Graydon for his story and unfortunately, that has caused this big buildup! I wanted explosions, fireworks and multiple orgasms flying out all over the placed did we get it? No! Instead, we get a couple that for some unexplained reason has a rouge Djinn NOT want them togetherever! Understandably, the Djinn, Malphas, has a situation with Beluveil's, aka Bel, son, Ferion, [...]

    3. 3,5 starsEver since Graydon, the Gryphon 1st Sentinel was introduced in the 1st book in this series, Dragon Bound, I have been a fan since then, so I was ecstatic when he finally got his own book.Shadow's End is the 9th book in the Elder Races Series and it's this storych a sad story about his love for the beautiful and unattainable Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord.Their story and love for each other began over two hundred years ago when they first met in London at a ball. They were forc [...]

    4. I adore this world that the author has created and devour her stories and still come looking for more! In this world of magical creatures there's none so honest and determined as the Sentinel Graydon. He's a gryphon who has spent centuries supporting his fellow Wyr but as readers kind of guessed from the previous story Lords Fall there's a lot more to learn about this guy and his past is anything but pedantic!Graydon has visions and throughout the years has repeatedly seen his own death. Somethi [...]

    5. SpoilersEnjoyed this more than the last few books in the series, Graydon and Bel were actually quite likeable and even though their story/romance was mostly predictable it still managed to be entertaining.I wasn't all that impressed with the insta-love that went on with Graydon/Bel. They literally spent a few hours in each other's company and suddenly they were madly in love, and even before that they were banging on about how the other made them feel when all they'd done was exchange a few look [...]

    6. This book is a whole lot of absolutely nothing happening. Except for one big battle at the end. Rest of it is page filler. Such a shame because the author has a way with words and a really lovely writing style, but the story was non-existent except for some conversations and thoughts from main characters. Meh

    7. I feel like I have been waiting for Graydon’s book since the beginning of the series. He’s such a good guy, always there for Dragos and Pia, not only as a Sentinel, but as a friend. We’ve caught a glimpse of Gray with his heroine, Beluviel, during a big battle in Lord’s Fall, but there was no way to know how deep their feelings went. After all, she was the Lady of the Elven demesne, married to the High Lord for centuries. But here, Thea Harrison takes us back to their beginnings to see h [...]

    8. Really, Thea? THIS is the best you could do for Graydon? It's not that this book was bad, precisely more that it was kinda draggy and utterly unmemorable. Like that Xavier bookGraydon has been A LOT of people's favorite character in the Elder Races books, and I don't think this book did his story justice. I mean, Graydon's funny and fun and sweet and "true blue", but somehow, none of those qualities are very apparent in this story. It's some drawn-out crap about Ferion's gambling issues (WTF?!) [...]

    9. Shadow's End3 StarsTwo hundred years ago, Graydon, the first Sentinel of the Wyr, and Beluviel, the High Lady of the Elven Court, were forced by the pariah Djinn, Malphas, to relinquish their hearts' desire in order to save the life of another. Now, with the traumatic changes in the Elven court, Gray and Bel will have to fight their centuries old attraction if they are to survive the evil force that threatens to destroy not only their lives but those of everyone they hold dear. Unfortunately, th [...]

    10. 4-ish stars. This is the 8th full length book in Thea Harrison's fine Elder Races series and, finally, it's Gray's turn. Shadow's End really does depend on in-depth knowledge of previous events and characters in the series so I wouldn't recommend starting with this one. Instead, start with the excellent Dragon Bound and go forward from there.I'm torn a bit about Shadow's End as I think it was good but could have been so much better. Mostly, I wish it had more pages and more depth. So, here goes, [...]

    11. When I first opened this book, I had to put it down. I hate flashbacks. It is just a thing I have. This book opens on a huge flashback. It needs to be there to set up all restrictions on our lovers but not my favorite thing. I had read Liam Takes Manhattan (because I am bad like that) so I did know the big spoiler of the book but there are many surprises along the way. The love story is sweet. The world great and the action adventure fun with some cool characters from the story stories making an [...]

    12. When you don't know how to review a book:This is the problem of doing a review the 9th book in the series. You can't give any spoilers and that's hard as fuck.If you have read Dragon Bound and you fangirled for Graydon, then here's the chance to know more about our favorite Gryphon!Shadow's End is the story of Graydon and Beluviel. Translation: Impossible love. Beluviel is the consort to the (dead) High Elven Lord who is Dragos' enemy because Dragos used to eat Elves for breakfast and Dragos is [...]

    13. 5 shiny stars!I LOVED this book and let me tell you why.First and foremost, KUDOS to Ms. Harrison for expertly leaving clues in previous novels and novellas and then brilliantly bringing everything together in this story. LOVED! LOVED! LOVED IT!(This book can be read without reading the novellas. Ms. Harrison explains everything very well, but I think perhaps a reader who hasn't read all the novellas in this series might feel that they're missing something).Secondly, Graydon and Beluviel were am [...]

    14. Full review at: Oh My Shelves Blog.Graydon’s book was what I had hoped for. The sacrifice and enduring love theme worked for me. It was action packed, dramatic, sad, happy and most of all, it had the HEA Graydon had been denied for 200 years. Gryphon took over as Frist Sentinel as well as my favorite when Rune left to mate with Carling.The narrator Sophie Eastlake just delivered the story with a flair that was completely riveting. I love her voice and how she tells this series. I read the firs [...]

    15. This one was meh and unforgettable. I have never cared enough about Gray and didn't care much for his heroine or this book. This series is always very up and down for me, I liked the previous book a lot but this one is going to be forgotten in a few days.

    16. Blog Review: sweptawaybyromance/2013.5 stars! I'm a huge fan of Thea Harrison's Elder Races series, but I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that Graydon didn't get the story he deserved. I've been waiting for what seems like forever for Gray's book - it wasn't bad, I was just hoping for so much more for sweet, loyal, and protective Gray. I wanted to get to know more about Gray, who's always been there, front and center in each book, but we didn't even get a glimpse of that Gray. He's been a Sen [...]

    17. ~ 4.5 Shadow’s End Stars ~ Shadow’s End is book nine in the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison. It’s full of lose, heartache, longing, and love. Each book in the Elder Races series deals with a different couple and can be read as a stand a lone, but they are best in order. WOW! What an emotional journey. I never expected to learn the things I did about Graydon and I never expected to like Beluviel (not a fan of the Fae in this series) as much as I did.Graydon, First Sentinel of the Wyr [...]

    18. Hmmm. This one is a hard one for me to review. I do love this series, but this book just dragged on and on. Perhaps it's just that time of year when everything needs to get done and there's no extra time, but no, I found myself skimming and trying to finish this book. So why 3 stars and not less? I'm still invested in this series. I love the main characters , the world, the interaction between the Elder Races. It's just that as a lead couple, Bel and Graydon did not hold my interest. Anyhow, if [...]

    19. 5 AWESOME starsNote 1: I did a re-read after I finish reading for the first time. I know, I know, I must move on to another books, another title. But I just can't help my self *grin. This review will edited slightly with my opinion after re-read.Note 2: When you re-read a same book for 4 TIMES, you can't help to up your rating into 5. I know this book have so many flaws. I know that the insta-lust or love maybe is just same old - same old. I did see my friend's review is varied and mixed. Yet, I [...]

    20. I really liked how Bel and Gray's story line fit in the overall story arc. I was saddened by what happened during the fight but wasn't surprised by it.

    21. I will start out saying that this is my favourite PNR series. It was the one that got me going in PNR, as until that time I hadn't been able to get into the paranormal world in any series, but this one changed it for me. I adore this world, I want to live in this world, I want a wyr for myself. Dragon Bound and Oracle's Moon are two of my most favourite books ever, I've reread them any number of times. I love the way there are so many different creatures in the world, wyr, vampyres, elves, witch [...]

    22. First Sentinel to the Wyr Lord, Graydon spent the last two centuries waiting and collecting information to use against the Djinn Malphas. All those years ago Graydon and Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, sacrificed their chance to be together to save her step son Ferion. With Ferion's new position of power, Malphas poses a greater threat than ever. To stop him, Graydon and Beluviel will gather their strength and allies to fight for their lives and their loveShadow's End displays all the [...]

    23. 4 1/2 "A love worth waiting for" Stars!This one was so good. I really loved it. Bel and Graydon are two characters I really rooted for. This one also made me very, very sad. I teared up. It could have been a 5 star, except for (view spoiler)[ Bel being married at the time she and Graydon met and made love. Yes, she and her husband did not live as husband and wife, and her husband clearly had affairs, but still, I just didn't like that. Adultery is adultery and they (Bel and Graydon) considered s [...]

    24. Wow! Just…WOW!Thea Harrison knocks SHADOW’S END right out of the park! This is one of the best reads of 2015 and one of the best books I’ve read in my whole life!No words could adequately describe how incredible this story really is. And it is an incredible story. A story of love and hate, sacrifice and selflessness, of grief and joy. It absolutely blew me away.Graydon is an honorable and stand-up guy. His and Bel’s romance spans centuries and is full of so much love. The story is not ju [...]

    25. It was okay, I guess. Not a whole lot to it, kind of short with an overlong prologue flashback, and I had hoped for more in Graydon's story. Simplistic storyline; an evil djinn is collecting souls in order to control them and gain riches. Gray is looking for a way to stop him, as it is causing an issue keeping him seperated from his lady love Bel. That's pretty much it. The rest of the book is descriptive padding and catching up with characters pulled back mostly from the novellas. Anyone not ke [...]

    26. *4+ Stars*I loved this! Very different in some way from the other books in the series, I'm not sure what it was but it had a different feel. Maybe it was the desperation of Graydon and Beluviel. Their situation was so unfair and out of their hands. They got to their HEA eventually though - which made me very happy!I listened to the audio and Sophie Eastlake was wonderful, as usual! This took me so long to get through because I wanted to listen so badly. Hubby isn't very understanding of earbuds [...]

    27. The first half of this one was super boring, yet it needed to happen. We needed to know what happened in the past to Beluviel and Graydon, why they could only moon over each other and the secret that they were hiding. Things only picked up when the past and the secret came out. It was nice to see all the Elder Races come together to go after a truly evil person. The battle that came next was great, but like all battles there are big prices that need to be paid, leaving a pall over the end of the [...]

    28. I liked Gray but this story didn't do him justice. I'm particularly peeved about the whole battle from conception to its ending. Why do authors do that to their readers? Without wanting to write any spoilers here, the whole thing just didn't make sense to me. Because I know that I had to read this before Liam Takes Manhattan, I forced myself to finish the book after the battle scene, but I wasn't that happy with the whole thing at the end, hence the low rating. :(

    29. Graydon!! Ahh!Ehem.I was so excited to get into this story. I had a lot of the action of book 1, though it felt like it was lighter on the romance. An action-packed adventure right from the start, Shadow's End had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen. Can I just move into this world, please?
