Summary: Banished from their world with his memory wiped, Cade Shepherd doesn’t remember his life as Gage Dempsey, nor the woman he nearly died for. But when Embry Hollister’s father is kidnapped by military scientists, the only one she can turn to is the love from her past. Will Gage remember the Shadow Walker skills he learned from her father? If they survive, will Embry be able to walk away again?

I bought Forsaken by Shadow because I'd been following the author on Twitter, and thought it sounded like an interesting read. I wasn't disappointed in Kait Nolan's urban fantasy novella. It's the first in her Mirus series, which I hope to see more of very soon. I love her writing. Her heroine is strong, compassionate, and has some mad fighting skills. The hero, Gage, is equally as interesting and passionate. The group of paranormal characters we are introduced to in this first book make me want her to finish the second book in record time. Ms. Nolan has given readers an awesome mix of romance, magic and adventure in her first book.

The action scenes in Forsaken by Shadow are gripping and fast paced. They had me holding my breath for the characters as they fought for survival. More importantly, Ms. Nolan had me WANTING them all to live and be safe. She has a talent for involving the reader in the lives of her characters, even though we've just met them. She makes us care about them, and the outcome of their struggles.

Forsaken by Shadow is a paranormal romance but also an urban fantasy. Kait Nolan has created a world that is fascinating, magical and dangerous. If you enjoy Jennifer Rardin, Shannon K. Butcher, or Devon Monk you'll really enjoy Forsaken by Shadow.

You can find the novella at Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
