Shadow's Stand - Sarah McCarty Well, oddly (considering the rest of the series), there wasn't much sex in this one. But, just as oddly, I didn't really notice it until the end. So this wasn't super smut like parts of the rest of the series has been, but it was a pretty good story. I liked seeing how Shadow was such a caring guy. He seemed standoffish and cruel and harsh, but it was always for the benefit of someone else. And Fei saw right through him. Eventually. :-) And talk about a strong woman. It must have been difficult living in that time period as a woman. But what she did to survive without giving up herself was admirable. And she was very good at thinking on her feet when she got into precarious situations. I'm not sure if this is the last one? I can't remember who is left, lol.
