Stalked by Shadows
by Lissa Kasey
A solid 3.5 out of 5 stars from me.
I've read a few different series by this author and some are hits while others are misses. This one was a hit.
This is the story of a broken veteran who needs someone to take care of and a guarded shopkeeper who needs someone to believe in him.
Alex Caine came back from serving his country a broken man, broken by what he saw and being told he was crazy for seeing it. While serving in Afghanistan something supernatural stalked him and his unit in the desert and, had it not been for him, everyone would have died that night. But he and two others walked away - not without Alex suffering from PTSD and being locked up in an institution. Alex's brother saved him from that and brought him home to New Orleans where he introduced Alex to Micah Richards, both to get Alex a job and to give Alex someone to care about.
Micah is also touched by the supernatural, however, and the combo of the two of them sets certain events in motion that embroils everyone they love in a struggle with the forces of darkness that exist in New Orleans, while having desert monsters coming home to roost.
This book was a great set up book and I enjoyed it. I can't wait to see what book 2 has to offer. View all my reviews
