Fei Yen and Shadow were both intriguing characters. SHADOW’S STAND is basically a really good story that’s been ruined by filler. It starts off with a bang. A really neat, memorable beginning. Fei is in a bit of a bind.

Stumbling, Fei went a step with her as the mare lowered her head to the stream. Fei couldn’t blame her. She could use a drink, too. From the humidity in the air, the day was going to be a scorcher. Shadow’s horse echoed the nicker.

Invoking a seldom-used law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard.Savvy, fearless Fei is single-mindedly devoted to her hidden claim and all it promises: wealth, security and freedom. A husband is just a necessary inconvenience and a name on paper to hold the claim she cannot.Shadow isn't a man to take orders from anyone, especially from lovely Fei—except that the daily friction between them ignites into nightly blazes of all-consuming passion. Soon Shadow is dreaming a little himself: of the life they could have if only Fei could see past the lure of independence. If only bounty hunters weren't closing in on him. If only he's left standing when the impending showdown has ended….

This is an incredible series. I got this book as it it s the 5th in the series, All the characters are amazing - all the books are a steamy (pretty steamy love scenes!!!) and are engrossing read... pulls at your heart strings and all the side characters are portrayed well for them to have their stories. I love McCarty's style in writing is fast paced and spicy - great dialogue and good repartee. I loved all the books in the series and I love McCarty's books as a rule! The plot is great, easy to follow and keep you reading till the end - which is always great - and that is what a romance novel needs to do, Super plot, great characters - super sexy hero and heroines that have mettle and spark to them and are not beaten down by their circumstances. I loved all the books and this one is no different to the series! If you love westerns that have an edge and characters that are superb - McArty is your writer! Loved all the books! Highly recommended!

I LOVE the Hell's Eight series and I was dying to read Shadow's story as he is one of my favorite characters and so I pre-ordered this as soon as I could. I checked my kindle at least three times the day before it was supposed to come out because I couldn't wait to read it! And then finally, I had it in my hands!!! However, that's where the awesome excitement stopped and turned into a huge let down .

What a bummer--usually Ms. McCarty leaves me panting for more, but not this time. When I realized that she jumped on the paranormal romance band-wagon and was pumping out books left and right in that genre, I had been worried about the quality of this book as I thought that she would just push this book out to fill a quota---Well, I'm pretty sure I hit the nail on the head with that observation. That's the only thing that can explain why Shadow's story reads like an every-day, run-of-the-mill HQN romance.

While that isn't necessarily a bad thing, I've come to expect much more from this author. Normally she writes a totally hot (like WOWZA! hot) story with an amazing story line and characters that you seriously fall in love with. I wonder if she was forced to tone it down because her original Hell's Eight stories were published under the Eldora's Cave name and this is a HQN publication.

Either way, I felt as if I was just reading a story that I borrowed from the library....it wasn't horrible, but it didn't get me excited and I was very disappointed with the entire thing. It's hard to pin-point what exactly left me so disappointed and with a feeling that I had been totally gypped on a amazing story so I guess I'll just have to leave it at this: If you want an average, not too exciting, not too hot, slightly boring read, this is the book for you.

I will most likely never bother to read it again nor would I recommend it which is a shame because I've read the others at least a dozen times and I've even given Cain's story out as a gift.

This was a good story, but not a great story as part of the Hell's Eight series. Shadow is the least-known of the characters. He's the most totured of the totured heroes in the series. He's been mysterious up till now. When he gets his own story, he's so much like Caine Allen (from book 1, Caine's Reckoning), that he's unrecognizable to me as Shadow. Shadow really lost his own personality in this book.

A lot of scenes reminded me of scenes from previous books, just with different characters plugged in.

There are also a lot of editing errors, which I haven't seen in the previous books. One example:
"Be sure you come back in one piece."
"I will."
"Good, because I'm going to kick it when you get out."

I guess there was supposed to be some reference to getting "your ass" back in one piece, then it was changed, but "kick it" was left in. This wasn't the first time in the story the pronouns didn't match up to the nouns.

And my kindle version had a very wide left margin, but I won't take off stars for that.

Sarah McCarty's voice rings as powerful and true as ever, but this story didn't suck me in as quickly or as deeply as previous entries in the Hell's Eight series. In fact, had the writer's voice not borne McCarty's signature grittiness, I might not have finished the book. Though the hero was intriguing from the get-go, I had trouble connecting with the heroine until a good distance into the novel. The heroine seemed standoffish not only to the hero, but also to the reader. That may have been intentional on the author's part, as a way of evoking a culture (Chinese) entirely foreign to most Americans. Once the pace picked up toward the middle of the book, the story flowed and moved right along. The novel is well worth a read for those who enjoyed the previous books in the series, but diehard McCarty fans should be aware SHADOW'S STAND represents a departure from what they may expect.

The hero and heroine in this book have really met their match. Sparks fly.

There is a really sense of the West in this entry into the series as our Chinese American heroine who knows how to blow things up meets our badass Mexican Indian hero.

They heal each other and have awesome sexy times. A great adventure!

I have read all of the "Hell's Eight" series and was really looking forward to Shadow's story. "Shadow's Stand" has been on my wish list for several months. I was disappointed in the storyline and the character development. I did not feel any connection to Fei or Lin. I wanted Shadow to be more alpha. I agree with another reviewer that said it (the book) was one-third great and two-thirds awful. I devoured the rest of the series but found myself bored and just wanting this story to end.

Wil I reread this? No. Would I recommend this? Probably not. Will I buy the next in the series (if there is one)? Yes.

My rating - 2.5 stars
