'Vigilante of Shadows' by Miranda Stork - Review

Full Title: Vigilante of Shadows (Scarlet Rain Series, Book 1)
Author: Miranda Stork
Genres: Paranormal, Fantasy, Dystopia, Romance

SUSPENSE/HORROR SEMI-FINALIST IN The Kindle Book Review’s 2013 Best Indie Book Awards! 

Aodhan clutched uselessly at his head, groaning. He knew it was useless, because the voice was not inside his head. It followed him, skimming across buildings and land. It had followed him since he was sixteen, and it still followed him today, like a memory too horrific to be forgotten… 

Aodhan is a shadow-demon, hardened and cold after years of  being alone, after his love, his Entwined, was cruelly taken away from him. He has closed his heart to the world, and now spends his life ridding the world of men like those who took his beloved away, an immortal hit-man… 

Arianwen Harris is a young DCI, working for York City Police. When a known criminal is found viciously killed, she finds herself trailing a hit-man who has seemed to escape clutches again and again…but she begins to find herself drawn to his dark charms and roguish good looks… 

As their two worlds collide, Aodhan and Arianwen find themselves coming together to escape a far greater enemy, one that threatens to create a world far worse than the one they live in. As they battle to hold back the oncoming forces, fate has another plan; one to draw them together and heal their broken pasts together…
*I was given a complementary copy in exchange for an honest review.

WOWZA!!!! I completely love this!!! Having been a fan since reading Conner I was super excited to get my hands on this! Miranda Stork has such a way of drawing you into the universe that she has created! 
Aodhan is such a dark character and you instantly feel his anguish over loosing his first love, so now he combs the earth and punishes the bad guys, like the ones that took her away. Then his hard, bad self meets Arianwen, a police officer who is charged with catching the killer- him!
Well..... hot sauce on a biscuit you know that she is drawn to him and he is opening up to her and OMGee..... 
If you are concerned with violent parts this is not the book for you though. I suggest this one for 16+ due to some of the violent parts, but they are really tastefully done.
