ShadowHeart Slayer by Claudy Conn
Shadow Series Book 2
Damon Drummond isn’t your usual vampire. For one thing he’s not out for blood like most other vampires. A handsome man of mystery from his head of raven hair to his silver tipped black boots. Four hundred years old and he’s having issues like wanting to protect a slayer. A stubborn, fiery haired, beautiful slayer! He’s regretting a decision that has come back to bite him in the arse and he's trying to keep his friends safe from being discovered by Count Vlad Dracula.
Nikki Walker is a slayer….a vampire slayer. So why in the world is she feeling pulled towards the handsome Damon, who of all things is the very thing she kills? She is out for revenge and it's brought her to Dublin. Everything about her brother’s murder points to a woman vampire named Deadly Moon and she will stop at nothing to find and kill her. Justice for Jack, nothing less will do. Only Damon keeps blocking her, the one man who knows where Deadly Moon is. Well him and having to save the world with her slayer skills.
If you enjoy series books you’ll definitely want to take the time to read ShadowLove Stalkers, the first in this series. Damon is introduced in this book along with some of the others who are in ShadowHeart as well. I enjoyed seeing some of the characters from the Legend Series in this book too. I didn’t feel left hanging at the end of the book but you do know that there is definitely more to come in book 3, ShadowLife Hybrid.

Shadow Heart: Slayer (Shadow Vampires #2)
by Claudy Conn
Her name is Nikki Walker, and she is a vampire slayer. She never thought she would have to use her slayer powers…but she does.
She is on the trail of an ancient and secretive vampire called Deadly Moon, and Nikki wants her dead. She has her reasons.
His name is Damon Drummond who some of you have met before, and already know that he is a hunk of an unusual vampire. He is bent on keeping Nikki away from Deadly Moon.
The sociopath vampire, WB, who had been Pentim Rawley’s right hand man has taken over the Pentim clan, and is turning out to be even more of a problem than his predecessor had been. In fact, if someone doesn’t do something soon…Dublin will go dark under his power, and other cities will follow.
Damon and Nikki are on opposite sides. He is a potent vampire--she is a skilled and powerful vampire slayer. Problem right there…but, when they look at each other, sparks of all kinds fly. Too much stands between them. He will live forever…she will not…and yet…
My Thoughts and Review
Oh My ! This series keeps getting better and better. Who would have thought a vampire and a vampire slayer not me ! I am just so loving this series it is nice to be excited by a new author its been a while for me so this is a nice treat.Claudy's books are just full of mysteries and by that I mean her characters they are all so mysterious and are not what they all seem on the surface and yet so much more.
We met Damon in book one of the series and I was falling for him then with his mysterious ways about him and his talk and dark brooding looks but, after reading his story I am totally in love.He is tall dark and dangerous and a very powerful and yet has a caring and sensitive side to the 1000 plus year old vampire that one would not expect.Nikki Walker vampire slayer is on the war path to avenge her brothers death.. But , at every turn Damon is in her way.The person Nikki is after is a very close friend of Damon's and he just cannot believe she would murder someone in cold blood even for a vampire.
The two go round and round.Damon is so much more then a vampire and Nikki does sense this he knows way to much about her. He says she has untapped powers that need to be released in order to fight the war they have ahead of them. War she is not here for war she is here for one purpose only and that is to kill the vampire that killed her brother.
Nikki and Damon make and odd couple right? A slayer and a ancient vampire? These two have a connection whether they want one or not the sparks are always there between these two.You feel heartache for the couple as there looks to be no future for the both of them one mortal and one immortal.
Nikki and Damon team up for whats ahead and develop a relationship not knowing were it would take them they will have to just have to live in the moment right ? New characters are introduced to us and the people who look the most normal have secrets themselves and it is so hard to trust anyone as they are not who they seem.Chad from book one graces our pages in this story and I was glad to see him there as Damon and he have developed a lasting relationship.
The story had so much going on that you need to pay attention so many developments coming to life.The story was a page turner from the very beginning trouble followed Nikki everywhere.We saw her grow more powerful throughout the story which would have made her brother Jack very proud .They story was full with wonders and laughs and magic and so much more.The Camaraderie between the two main characters had me smiling on a off throughout the book. More of the puzzle comes to light but, the danger is still there and they are all still in for another adventure.The stories new characters were all so amazing I am talking about the good one of course not the bad ones ! LOL Just love them all ..
This was another amazing read and and enjoyable tale .As always can't wait to read the next in the series to see what happens next I am on pins and needles!A recommended read to all and Claudy is at the top of the list for people to read in my book anyway. Kept the stories coming Claudy...........your biggest fan............

I am beyond tired once again. That seems to happen every time I read one of Claudy's books. I never seem to be able to put it down and end up staying up most of the night. This book is part two of her vampire series and features Damon, one of the characters from book one, and Nikki, a slayer. I love it when female heroines kick butt :). This book sucked me in from the first page and did not let me out until I had read every page.
I adored the characters and felt like the story line made some nice developments. I am really interested to see how the main story arc plays out. I was beyond excited to have Breslyn and Ete making an appearance in the story and am very interested in how this series will mingle with her fae series (it is one of my all time favorite series). I can not pinpoint what it is about her writing exactly, but it is beyond addictive. I can not wait to begin the next book!!!

Author: Claudy Conn
Released date: August 26, 2011
Page count: 255
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Fantasy, and paranormal.
My rating: 5/5 stars
First off thanks to Claudy Conn I was able to read this book.
Second I absolutely love this cover. It's now in my top ten.
Third If you haven't read any of her books this series is a definite to read.
Fourth Can't wait for the next book to come. :D
Shadow Heart-Slayer picked up the pace quicker then the first book and that was simply yay. I love how the book is was set up. Nikki slowly gets smarter though out the book and Damon well he's just a big tease. The whole book he taunts her from their dreams too just standing in the room with her.
There were two main conflicts throughout the book. First we learn about them and how awful the bad guys are. Then in the last 20% The battles are fought and the problems are solved. Simple and easy fights in a book are my favorite.
