Trehan & Bettina

Shadow's Claim - Kresley Cole

Even though this book is part of the IAD series, it is also the first installment in the The Dacian’s. The secret Vampire clan within the Lore who we met in Lothaire’s book.


I really enjoyed this book. Trehan, a ruthless master assassin, follows a wayward demon into Abaddon in order to keep his home safe. Yet instead of capturing his foe, he finds Bettina. A shy and fearful Sorceress, and his Bride. Pleased with this discovery he dreams of a life he thought long out of his reach. However, things don’t go as he wishes and he finds himself locked in a death match in order to win his mates hand. I really enjoyed the tournament, and as with Kresley’s other books you can’t help but love the characters and get caught up in their romance.
