Captivating, clever and twisty. 

Would you read it again? 

What if you were erased from your true love's memory?

In book three of the Ash Grove Chronicles, just hours after Joy and Tanner's daughter is born, Tanner finds himself in a world where Joy doesn't know him and their baby doesn't exist. But when he thinks he has found the source of the magic that has undone reality, a heartsore Maddie makes a wish that alters history even further. With time now growing short for Tanner, he must try to win Joy's trust and convince her that they have a future together--even though their past has vanished.

As the fabric of reality begins to fray, an old enemy arises amid the chaos... and Joy and her Ash Grove friends must fight to save the world as they know it. This thrilling sequel to The Shadow and the Rose and Casting Shadows will keep readers guessing as it races toward its astonishing conclusion.


If you enjoy good paranormal romances, you will find Among the Shadows by accomplished author Amanda DeWees, outstanding. This was so clever, so twisty and so riveting, that it kept me completely transfixed from cover to cover.

The story picks up a soon after the conclusion of Casting Shadows, with the birth of Rose Sumner. Within a page, it was clear that something was not right. Everything that seemed real in gorgeous Tanner Sumner’s life, suddenly didn’t exist. His wife, Joy, and their newborn baby Rose, had vanished. Sadly, for Tanner, his life as he knew it, was not only shifting like sand between fingers, but was also at high risk of being simply erased.

The ramifications of Dr Steven Sumner’s decision to alter time, and bring back his dead wife, caused multitudes of ripple effects, and with each attempt to ‘fix’ this error, reality continued to swing. All the characters’ lives were altering, but shifting the focus from Joy to Maddie’s viewpoint, was an excellent tool to help tell this story. I liked how vital Maddie’s role therefore, became.

Due to the ingenious imagination of Ms DeWees, nothing was simple at Ash Grove in this book. Incorporating magic and alternate realities, nefarious plots with just as equally cunning characters, Among the Shadows was brilliant. You will be kept on your toes trying to adjust each occasion time and reality shifts, and desperate to know the ending! Her ability to create strong, likeable characters, captivating storyline with enchanting romance, interspersed with splashes of well placed humor, was what made this book so incredible. An extremely delicious feast for lovers of Paranormal Romance.
