*I received this book from the Author in exchange for an Honest Review*

The fourth installment of The Others of Edenton, we continue on with Amethyst's story. This book picks up almost exactly where Shadows Fall ends. An ancient enemy wants Amethyst and no one will let him have it.
I really liked the chemistry between Amethyst and Hayden. It was nice to see him take the stick out of his rear and not be such a hard arse. Of course Jess, Fallon, and the others all make several appearances as well.
Due to Amethyst being a Nymph, there were a lot more sex scenes in this book than the other three, and Brandy sure got creative with how they were done.
The only real problem I had with the story was that it was very anticlimatic. There's this whole build up on the enemy and killing him, that I was hoping there would be a scene like the fight with Malachi. But there wasn't. In fact this Shadow Fae seemed to be the easiest thing to kill.
I still loved the story though even with it's lack of a final battle and of course the characters who now sort of feel like friends. I look forward to reading the next installment of this series.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws

Just when I thought a series could not get any better, bam! Ms. Brandy does it. I absolutely love this series any who, but OMG I could not put this book down. I actually read the prologue TWICE! The storytelling and history in this chapter was the perfect setup for the rest of the book. I'm hoping that it's a little hint of something to come?!?!

Shadows of the Past takes place right after Shadows Fall. Lets just say, that Amethyst doesn't have the best welcoming to Edenton. She is pulled over for speeding and she placed into cuffs and hauled to the police station. And that is where Hayden starts getting soft!

I absolutely love Amethyst. She is kind of the complete opposite of Jess and Fallon. It's nice to have a someone who isn't so overpowering all the time. However, I think it does hurt her a little bit because people don't think she can handle her business.

Hayden... At first I was like OMG. Please don't let Ame hook up with him. He was kind of a dbag in the first books. Maybe it's because he is the Sheriff, that he comes across as a hard ass or maybe it was me. I did grow to like him as the book progressed and in the end, I love him, like I do all the guys from Edenton.

I believe I was the most upset about Preston. My heart broke from him. Please, oh please, write a book for Preston. He needs a HEA. However, Hayden and Ame do make a very good couple. I do love them.

So... Ms. Brandy... 5 + stars. Seriously. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book. Paperback please! I think I might have to invent a new rating scale for your books.

Shadows of the Past is book 2 of The Others of Edenton Series (but the 4th book in the series). This is Amethyst's and Hayden's story.
After leaving San Francisco and the mess of her old life behind, all Amethyst wants to do is move to Edenton to rebuild herself and heal. She wants to rest, spend time with friends, and have some alone time.
Enter Sheriff Hayden Hunter. He is a sexy earth fae who is captivated by the beautiful lavender haired nymph from the moment he sets eyes on her.
Something dark and evil is happening in Edenton. Will Amethyst be able to overcome her past and discover her true power to help?

I absolutely love this series! I count down the days for each new book! If you have not had the pleasure of reading them and you are a paranormal lover, do yourself a favor and discover the brilliance that is Brandy Rivers!
