The Quick and Dirty: After sacrificing herself to the shadow realm in order to save Garrett, she must find her inner light and fight to get back to her guys.

**Mild spoilers**
Warning: make sure you have a protective case because you’re going to want to chuck your phone across the room at the end. The ending is just evil. Someone Ari loves dies and I have no idea how the next book is going to play out without this person. The world building and story telling was excellent though and this sophomore novel in the series is 🔥🔥🔥. Can’t wait for the next one!

To save the ones she loves, Ari drew on her Shadowborn powers at great cost to herself, making the ultimate sacrifice for those who have become like family to her.

With attacks increasing on shifters, and strange disappearances happening around the city, everyone is on alert. Tensions between the shifter packs and the magical community start to build as traces of magic are found at the crime scenes.

With Ari’s mind trapped in the mysterious shadow realm, but her body left behind in the real world with the men who love her, she needs to find a way back. Ari has always rejected her Shadowborn powers so this is easier said than done. Until a mysterious man arrives in the shadow realm claiming he can help her.

Will Ari trust the stranger and finally embrace her powers, or will she truly become Lost in Shadow?

This is an 18+ reverse harem story. Contains dark themes that some people may find triggering.


I am a new independent author from England, where I work full time within the healthcare system, and write on the side! I have a wonderful husband and family who support me, and I also co-write with the amazing K.A Knight. Circus Save Me was our first book together, and my first published work.

I started writing when I became unwell and suddenly had a lot of time on my hands and the characters in my head wouldn’t stop talking.

I love reading, going on adventures with my husband, eating, and I am addicted to coffee.
