Publisher's Summary

A missing girl, ritual murders, and a shadow stalking every footstep.

Alexis Caine survived an attack in the deserts of Afghanistan. An attack the government denied and discharged him for, leaving him broken and in a mental institution. What Alex saw that day in the desert continues to haunt him.

When a new job working as a bodyguard for a New Orleans ghost tour guide, Micah Richards, opens Alex’s eyes to a world of paranormal possibilities, he’s not sure he can believe his eyes. What if he’s not crazy after all? When a ritual murder in which two fellow tour guides die and a tourist vanishes, Alex wonders if he brought a curse down upon them all.

A shadow from the desert rears its nightmarish head offering Alex something he wants more than anything, but at what cost?

A thrilling paranormal mystery!

This was so good! Filled with magic and mayhem this book is definitely a treat!
I must admit that I enjoyed the audio version way more than the ebook though.
Tyler Kent performs a gripping, engaging and thrilling audio delivery and narration.
I was intrigued by the world building right from the beginning and the Paranormal elements added to it made it all the more interesting.
I'm definitely looking forward to listening to the next one in this series.

Great performance, enticing mystery

Sometimes, monsters in nightmares seem able to chase you when awake...
Alex Caine is a survivor. Back from serving in Afghanistan, he knows the bombs and bullets are not the most terrifying thing in the dessert… But most people deem him crazy, and only his twin brother Lucas is willing to offer him a home, a job, and the support he needs to continue. In an attempt to help Alex recover his balance, Lucas introduces him to Micah Richards, another survivor of things unknown. As Lucas had planned, Alex and Micah soon click together, but their budding relationship seems to empower the darkness surrounded both of them, threatening to end in tragedy…
So… I like the premise of the book, and I loved the background (New Orleans) and the mystery is enticing. My problem is that the story seems to drag along, and I did not really liked the main characters that much. Specially Micah, his attitude and apparent detachment make him difficult to like. Also, there is too much pondering about metaphysical issues which kept interrupting the action… Fortunately, the narration is superb and it makes up for the carences and excesses of the story. Tyler Kent’s performance draws you in and keeps you hooked, so you want to keep on listening although not much is going on. I really enjoyed it.

enjoyed it - good series start.

📖 Lissa Casey is a new author for me and I went into Stalked by Shadows having only read the publishers summary (and not any of the reviews). The story was very different to what I was expecting and I very much enjoyed it - it was fun and had just the right amount of creepy to keep my interest. The main characters are unique in their back stories and work well together, it has good supporting characters, smart dialog and a reasonable pace.
♦♦ BE WARNED: The story does end on a bit of a cliff-hanger and setup for book 2. ♦♦
🎧🎧 Tyler Kent is a new narrator for me, and I think he's done a good job with the narration of Stalked by Shadows. He has good rhythm, is expressive, and brings life to the characters and their stories. There is enough difference in each characters personality that they are clearly distinguishable, His voice for Micah perfectly suits his personality, but I would have liked Alex's voice to be a little deeper (this is only a minor critique and not enough to detract from the story),
✔ Overall I enjoyed Stalked by Shadows and look forward to the next in the series.

Entertaining Listen

Really enjoyable story. Really entertaining mystery and start to romance. So much was left unanswered with this one. Looking forward to listening to next book and learning more about characters past and paranormal elements. What really happened when they went missing? Hope to learn more in future books in series.

Received copy of audible book from author for a review.

A good paranormal mystery with a side of romance

I loved the paranormal aspects of Lissa’s storytelling, the exploration into the unexplained and the aftermath of what the characters went through. While I enjoyed Tyler Kent’s performance, I didn’t feel as though he was “Alex enough”. Great portrayal of Micah, though.

Stalked by Shadows

This was a great creepy ghost story with mystery and romance! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book! The narrator did a really great job with this story! I loved the way the characters were brought to life along with all the feelings and it just made this story that much better! I loved Alex, Micah, Lucas, and Sky they were such interesting characters. I loved the development between Alex and Micah as the story progressed and they also had to figure out what was going on with the paranormal mystery. I definitely need the next book with the way this one ends. The mystery kept me very engaged and wanting to know more! Loved the way this story progressed and loved the setting of New Orleans. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next to these characters and this story.

New Orleans and missing persons...

I like Lissa Kasey's books.
That said, I like her more fantastical stories (hidden gem, dominion, Witchblood) better than her real life (model citizen) series.

This is... In between.
It's real life with some fantastical elements that aren't really explained - and could be shared hallucinations, or actual paranormal activities.
And while you're definitely led to beloved it's paranormal, the book doesn't really commit to it and force the fantastical on you.

The series may in the sequel.
And it may not. It could go either way.

This book felt a little too.... Neat... To me. The main couple doesn't really have a warming up period. They're just instantly on.
Which is a nice change - but also feels a little too easy, and makes their growth throughout the book almost secondary to the development of the tertiary characters (who do change more dramatically).

So... I don't know.
It's a fun book. The mystery is fairly compelling, and you get a good tour of New Orleans.
But I want a bit more.... Some resolution/conclusion that the crazy is real. In either direction. Mental illness or paranormal.

But that's me.

I'll keep going with the series. I haven't had a book by Lissa that I've DISLIKED yet. And the potential for some crazy magic stuff is definitely here.
But at the same time, the series could split from the majority of her work and focus more on mental health and always leave you questioning what's real and what isn't.
Either way, I'm stuck wanting to know more.

Interesting setting

I’m fascinated by New Orleans - a visit is on my Bucket list so I enjoyed this story from that perspective. The main and side characters are interesting and the set-up is intriguing. The main characters are struggling with their own paranormal issues and a mystery of vanishing people. I am curious to see how the story develops. Tyler Kent narrates smoothly. The characters are easily distinguishable. I enjoyed listening to his voice!
