Maxym M. Martineau. Shadows of the Lost (Sourcebooks, $16.99 Signed).

Once I was a Charmer, and the magical beasts of this world loved me. Now I'm something else. Something darker.


As a member of the Charmers Council, Gaige is able to form lasting bonds with the magical beasts of his world. At least, he used to be a Charmer...until he died and was brought back as one of the immortal assassins of Cruor. Now he's far more dangerous.


…and something beyond the shadows lies in wait, hungry to claim him for its own.


As leader of the assassins, all Kost can do is watch as Gaige struggles with his new life day by day. He wants nothing more than to ease Gaige's suffering—yet how can he when they both know he's the one responsible? There is nothing left but bitter memories and hopeless longing between them. Yet when Gaige is lost to the shadow realm, Kost is the only one with any chance of bringing him back: if they can learn to trust (and perhaps love) each other again.


Intense, compelling, and impossible to put down, Shadows of the Lost is perfect for readers looking for:

epic New Adult fantasy series with a bit of spice

a unique premise, delicious angst, and a plot to die for

high fantasy with paranormal and romance elements
