#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians: Realm of Blood and Mist, a new paranormal series following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a vampire kingdom hidden within the Lore of the Immortals After Dark.

Shadow’s Claim features Prince Trehan, a ruthless master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament— to the death.


Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has spent his life serving his people—striking in the night, quietly executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman has never desired anything for himself—until he beholds Bettina, the sheltered ward of two of the Lore’s most fearsome villains.


Desperate to earn her guardians’ approval after a life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry whichever suitor prevails—even though she’s lost her heart to another. Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.


Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina’s heart is yet to come. And unleashing a millennium’s worth of savage need will either frighten his Bride away—or stoke Bettina’s own desires to a fever pitch. . . .

The story was predictable, as many of this series has become, but it's still an enjoyable, quick read.

Great story. I love this series, written as only Kresley Cole can write. Loved catching up and revisiting old friends from the original Immortals After Dark series.

Kresley Cole can do no wrong in my book. Love her stories and characters...the drama, sexiness and humour. Can't wait to read the next instalment of IAD.

I can't decide if I like Bettina or not. She seems so young an flighty. However this book was a wonderful introduction to the workings of Dacia. I can't wait until the next book about the Dacians.

Just finished. It is a great book. Though I felt it took too long for Bett to come to terms with her feelings.
