I know I barely know that girl, but I’m gonna marry her. You watch.
We travel back in time to the very beginning and discover the birth of Shadows.
The aftereffects of a horrible war left broken men, but then a secret brought them back to life.
Love and friendships grow while fighting a new type of war, one that may never be won, while the bonds between generations hold true. No matter what is thrown at them, they will always have each other to lean on. Even while they stay hidden within the halls of Shadows.
Trouble is brewing deep in the Montana mountains, and the fate of some is uncertain. Change is coming to Team Blackstone, and whether they like it or not, it’s happening. But will this rock the foundation of Shadows, or will it usher in a whole new era for the team? The pranks bring much needed humor to help overcome the heartache. And a housemate asks for help, leading us into dark water…

Author J.L. Drake was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, later moving to Southern California where she lives with her husband and two children. 
When she’s not writing she loves to spend time with her family, traveling or just enjoying a night at home. One thing you might notice in her books is her love for the four seasons. Growing up on the east coast of Canada the change in the seasons is in her blood and is often mentioned in her writing.
An avid reader of James Patterson, J.L. Drake has often found herself inspired by his many stories of mystery and intrigue.
She hopes you will enjoy her stories as much as she has enjoyed writing them.

Shadows (Dark Water, #1)Shadows by J.L. Drake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well if you are like me and have been here since the beginning then you know how we have wanted and hoped for this book for some time. The how and the why Shadows started. The wait was so worth it for the story in this book. Gosh….it’s so good and more than I could have hoped for. The backstory of Shadows comes alive and takes us back in time and answers all those questions that we have had. I felt every emotion while reading this book. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The writing of this book is phenomenal in the way that it makes you feel every emotion and feel the pain, heartbreak, and the true family value that you feel a part of. If the other books are anything like this one, we are in for a real treat. I can’t wait!!!

Happy Reading Everyone!!!
