What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

My name is Lorn, and I’m a witch. Or at least, I thought I was.

Turns out, things aren’t always what they seem.

My magic has always been different from others of my kind—untamed. Something to hide, even in my own world, along with my monster-filled dreams and odd ‘episodes.’

When my entire life is turned upside down with a single drop of blood, the mysterious magick I’ve been trying to hide finally catches up to me.

Deserted and stranded on my own, four strangers offer me asylum and a place to call home. At least, for now.

With the help of Dason, Chayton, Axel, and Kota, I’m discovering the truth about myself as my past and my future collide. The world I grew up in was a lie, and now I’m learning how to use my magick, who my enemies are, and that the beasts stalking my sleep are actually real. And they’re my problem.

Surrounded by deadly threats, the guys and I navigate a world full of supernatural creatures, each with their own agendas, to gather the intel we need to defeat the darkness. Hopefully for good.

There’s danger in the shadows, but I’ll be dead before I let it win.

And I’m just getting started.

Thoughts on Shadow Touched

Good start

This one slams into the action and sets a break neck speed through a paranormal world on the edge of disaster.

When Lorn learns she isn’t what she always thought she was, it sets up a series of events that thrust her into an entirely new culture – one where she is far more than she always thought, along with a handful of fated mates that really have no idea of what to do with her.


  • Good set up, can see this being a great series.
  • Lorn. Can’t help but love her.
  • Crew has real life issues, not just supernatural problems.


  • Minor Editing issues.
  • Guys kinda blend together.
