Chicago’s Ferraro crime family will do anything to protect one of their own in this thrilling entry in the Shadow Riders series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

Nicoletta Gomez was a terrified teenager when Taviano Ferraro and his brother saved her life. Ever since, she’s been trying to rise above what was done to her, molding herself into a survivor under the protective eyes of the Ferraro family. All the while, she’s been falling hopelessly in love with the man who knows her darkest secrets.…

With one look, Taviano knew that Nicoletta was his, just as he felt their shadows connect. But no matter how much he wanted to claim her, he knew she needed time to become her own woman. When Nicoletta once again finds herself in the sights of dangerous men, a split-second decision has Taviano breaking all of the Ferraro family’s rules to keep her safe. And as far as he’s concerned, the reward is more than worth the risk.

Shadow Flight is the story fans of the Shadow series have been waiting for: Taviano and Nicoletta! These two have been dancing around each other for years, but danger has come seeking Nicoletta and Taviano is done waiting.

First, while you don’t have to have read the previous books, the story has lots of previous characters, and Nicoletta has a very important back story. Shadow Flight gives you the information you need to be able to understand the story, but you might be a bit confused with all the characters and aforementioned events. Also, this series is fantastic, so you should read them all anyway! We have seen both Nicoletta and Taviano grow up over the course of the previous stories (the other Ferraro brothers) and that makes this story even more special!

Nicoletta’s life is heartbreaking. What she went through was traumatic, and she is still not recovered. Pining for Taviano has become her constant companion. I really loved how Feehan made Nicoletta strong, yet still showed how she was struggling and how hard she had to work have the strength she has now. Nicoletta struggles with shame, disgust, self loathing, and more but still manages to work on improving herself. She studies everything, she trains with the Ferraro’s, and she helps everyone she can. Its impossible not to love this girl.

Taviano is the youngest of his brothers and he knew the moment he met Nicoletta she was his soulmate. However, she was a terrified teenager. Waiting for Nicoletta to mature and get better was incredibly tough for him, but he throws that out the window when Nicoletta is in danger. In Shadow Flight, she is 20 (almost 21) at this point, so its not a creep factor for me. Taviano has spent the years learning how to help Nicoletta, even though she had no idea. He is so devoted and attune to her it is very swoon worthy.

Shadow Flight combines elements of paranormal romance, a touch of darkness, a close knit family, and deep love to create a story that will stick with you long after you finish.
