Retribution - Shadow Dweller 2 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Retribution - Shadow Dweller 2

Jennifer Beaumont (whom we met in One with the Hunger) was determined to help Valentin beat Mikhail. When Mikhail kidnapped her good friend Miranda, Jennifer drew up her courage to face the horrible man who had ruined her life so many years ago by turning her into his revenant. Jennifer found that Mikhail hadn't changed a bit and left without Miranda, but her confrontation brought Conor "Mac" MacNaughten back into her life. Jennifer had broken Mac's heart years before by insisting that she didn't love him to save his life and keep him away from Mikhail, who would surely kill him. When Mac saw Jennifer again, he knew that he had never fallen out of love with her but still couldn't understand why she would choose Mikhail over him. Was it because Mac had no memories of his life as a child? And what did Mikhail know about his father who Mac had no memories of? As both Jennifer and Mac struggle to come to grips with the havoc Mikhail has created in their lives, the truth comes out and they start to fall in love again. Now, if only they can keep Mikhail from destroying their new chance at love...

Retribution is a pretty short "book", at 170 pages, if you enjoy vampire/werewolf/witch romances, though, this is a great series. My main complaint is that, just when you get to know and like the characters, the book is over. Mac was such a sexy hero that I definitely wanted to spend more time with him! Also, there are six books in this series and then Wilder just leaves the reader hanging so be aware that it is not complete. All of the books feed off of each other, but it is not necessary to read them in order (although they make a lot more sense if you do). They are available at much cheaper prices in ebook format. Keep an eye out and you can get all 6 for a pretty good deal, just remember that they are very short!

The review of this Book prepared by Debbie

Jennifer was strong enough for her to betray the man she held dear in order to save him and, once again, succumb to the wishes of her “master,” the evil vampire Mikhail.

Mac has held thousands of women over hundreds of years, but none ever touched him as deeply as Jen and no one hurt him as much as she did when she tossed him aside. Now Val asks him to work with the one woman he loathes in order to save another.

The game begins with a kidnapping, bringing together two people who can't forgive or forget...or can they?
