Product description

Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire. Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different - and under her calm, professional exterior he senses a passion beyond anything in his centuries of experience. Giving in to temptation is out of the question - he can't put her in danger. But she isn't asking him.

This book is a work of art. There's so many amazing things that I loved about it that I don't even know where to start! Let's go simple and start with our stars. We meet Melanie briefly in book 2, but she really shines in this book. She's strong and brave for a human, and she's more than willing to stand up for who and what she believes in. Bastien is the villain from book 1, so naturally he's not exactly voted most popular with the Network or the Immortals, but we get to know a side of him that no one else seems even interested in glimpsing. They're compelling as individuals, but as a couple they're even more so.

I think what might be the most amazing part is that the book in no way felt long or drawn out, yet SO MUCH is incorporated into it. We see Bastien and Melanie's romance progress, we get a little insight into Richart, Etienne, and Lisette, revisit Ami a little, get more insight into Seth, and meet a new player Zach. That doesn't even include the conflict! The big bad is perhaps darker in this one than in the last two. Then, right as we're getting our pretty little bow at the end, a bomb of sorts is dropped. OMG. And she does all this without leaving the reader lost or confused or let down in any way, ever.

Dianne doesn't usually end the books on a cliff hanger, though she will leave you with something that makes you want more, but this time she leaves you aching, screaming for the next installment! She's an absolute artist. The mystery she builds is just masterful, both long term and short term. The fight scenes are perfect, because she includes you and keeps you riveted, but without bogging you down with excessive details. With these abilities, she's woven a very powerful tale.

Phantom Shadows is every bit as good, if not better than its two predecessors. The comraderie between the various people, the character development, the unrelenting excitement of the plot make for a story that is so gripping that you just want to climb into it. It's a masterpiece that I believe every paranormal romance fan should read, and I can't get enough!
