Danger inspires fierce passion when a new threat targets Chicago's Ferraro crime family in this novel in Christine Feehan's New York Times bestselling series.
A long-simmering feud between two families comes to a head in this gripping novel in Christine Feehan's New York Times bestselling Shadow Riders series.
As the youngest member of the Ferraro family, Emmanuelle has watched each of her brothers find happiness in love while her own heart was shattered by a lover’s betrayal. For two years she’s stayed as far away from Valentino Saldi as possible—until she learns that he’s been shot during a hostile takeover of his family’s territory.
Emme’s first instinct is to call her brother Stefano for help, and soon the entire Ferraro clan arrives to bring Val back from the brink of death and protect the Saldis from further attack. With one choice Emme has re-exposed herself to Val’s intoxicating pull and dragged her family into the Saldis’ private war.
A deadly storm is brewing, and only time will tell who survives…

Shadow Storm is the book most fans of the Shadow series have been waiting for. Emme and Val’s story has been mentioned in every previous book. It has had this Romeo/Juliet vibe for sure. Add in that they used to date and something went wrong and you have the slow build of a dynamite second chance story.

Shadow Storm really brings the action, and I loved that. And, as expected, there are secrets. So many secrets! Emme has been the character I have wanted to know more about-her mother is just awful and she seemingly takes such crap from her. I have been rooting for her and Val, but knew her brothers would be a hurdle. They are super protective and know that Val hurt Emme. They also don’t like that he is a Saldi.

Val has problems; really, his family has problems. The Saldi’s are a mafia family and that brings plenty of danger. Val has a darker story for many reasons, but being the heir of a mafia crime family delivers darkness to his door. Regardless, I knew he was the one for Emme. He wouldn’t back down when going head to head with her brothers, he would do anything to keep her safe, and while he wasn’t a rider, he understood her uniqueness.

The Shadow Riders series has been a favorite of mine and Shadow Storm really delivered everything I was hoping for and so much more! Fans of Feehan will devour this book!
