    some vampires needing to be sheltered

    When you think of vampires you think of strong, capable beings having the ability to do amazing things. But in Jen Colly’s new novel Sheltered the fourth book in The Cities Below, published under the Lyrical Press brand and sold by Penguin Random House Publisher, you find that this is not always true and that there are just some vampires needing to be sheltered. Though this story was easy to put down, just as quickly you wanted to pick it up to enjoy the rest of the story. I started Sheltered not realizing this story was part of a series, I had no trouble following the plot. Sheltered follows the story of Bette Dautry a long vampire who feels the sun calling to her. If she doesn’t find something to bind her to this world, she just might take that final step into the sun. So, she decides to take a trip to the mystery city below, where she find Rollin a Guardian to the city. But unknown to Bette, Rollin is not just any Guardian, he is one of the heirs to the Balinese throne. What I totally adored about Sheltered was the name spin of how the story will go and end. All through this story, Rollin had to shelter and protect Bette and that was totally okay with me. Which made this story very unique and pleasurable; I come to love the characters and the secondary characters.

    Fascinating world

    3,5 stars My feelings went back and forth on this one for a variety of reasons. The world of The Cities Below is still just as fascinating as it has been throughout this series, but this one felt more laid back on the action side of things. Rollin and Bette both have secrets and there is plenty of romantic tension, but after so much intrigue and action in the series, I was a little disappointed at the lack of it here. The story is still good and if you've followed the series, we get more of so many beloved characters. There are still some unanswered questions and the epilogue raises a few more. I'll be interested to see where this series goes from here.

    The Cities Below takes place in an altered world that the author brings to vivid life and really makes it easy for the readers picture each and every scene. Her world includes vampires and demons that she has created with a bit of unique flair and her characters are strong and vibrant which ensures that readers want to know every last detail of the story as they become completely caught up in the story. Sheltered is full of sweet romance with some very heated passion to heat up the pages and emotional turbulence that grabs readers by their hearts which of course keeps things interesting as the story is also full of suspense and a few twists to keep readers guessing. First, Bette has a secret agenda and Rollin is keeping secrets, both have good solid reasons for doing so, but they are emotional reasons, so this keeps readers on the edge as they await the final outcome of this romance. There is also some drama and conflict among other characters in the book that adds depth and helps to pull readers deeper into this fascinating world. As with each and every visit to The Cities Below, I found that I was completely caught up in the book from the very beginning and I am looking forward to my next visit. Jen Colly’s world has some unique qualities that have me recommending that you read the books in order, only so that you more understand the intricacies of her world but they can be read as standalone as well.
