“Shadowed,” the sixth book in Rebecca Zanetti’s “Dark Protectors” series, catapults readers into a whirlwind of danger, desire, and dire circumstances, solidifying its place as a USA Today Bestselling Book. This installment focuses on Jase Kayrs, a character shrouded in mystery, pain, and an unwavering dedication to a perilous mission. His path intersects with Brenna Dunne, a witch whose life hangs in the balance, creating a narrative that is as intense as it is emotionally resonant.

Jase Kayrs emerges from the shadows bearing the weight of his scars, both physical and emotional. The depth of his character is revealed through the signs of danger that surround him, marking him as a man on a mission with little regard for anything beyond it. However, his encounter with Brenna Dunne, a formidable witch now fighting for her life against a debilitating poison, challenges his solitary focus. Brenna, once known for her strength and prowess, finds herself in a vulnerable position, yet her determination to survive and see beyond Jase’s scars speaks to the resilience and insight of her character.


The proposition that taking Jase as her mate could save Brenna’s life introduces a high-stakes gamble into the narrative. The potential for salvation through their union is a compelling catalyst for both characters, driving them towards each other with an intensity that is palpable. Zanetti expertly navigates the complexities of their burgeoning relationship, balancing the urgency of Brenna’s condition with the slow unraveling of Jase’s guarded heart.

The unleashing of Jase’s desire and the force of their combined powers sets the stage for a story that is “hot and fast from beginning to end.” The dynamics of their relationship explore themes of vulnerability, sacrifice, and the power of love to transcend the darkest of times. Brenna’s willingness to embrace Jase, despite the dangers and uncertainties, and Jase’s struggle to accept the possibility of a future beyond his mission, create a rich tapestry of emotional depth and character development.

“Shadowed” delves deep into the lore of the “Dark Protectors” universe, weaving together elements of magic, supernatural politics, and the enduring battle between good and evil. The stakes are elevated not only by the personal journey of Jase and Brenna but also by the implications of their union for the wider supernatural world. Their story is a testament to the series’ overarching themes of destiny, the strength found in unity, and the relentless pursuit of hope in the face of adversity.

As Jase and Brenna navigate their newfound bond, they’re embroiled in a web of danger and political intrigue. With the winter solstice approaching, Brenna’s potential rise in power makes her a target for Kurjans and demons alike. Amidst avoiding an unwanted suitor, evading the murderous intentions of the ominously named Crap group, and wrestling with Jase’s vendetta, Brenna proves herself to be a formidable witch with resilience and cunning.

Brenna’s story is particularly compelling, unraveling the mystery of her unique birthright as the 8th sister of a 7th sister. Her character shines through adversity, balancing lethal threats with unwavering determination. Jase, haunted by his past, finds in Brenna not just a mate but a healer, guiding him towards healing rather than destruction.

“Shadowed” stands as a pivotal addition to the “Dark Protectors” series, offering readers a gripping tale of passion, peril, and the unyielding power of the human spirit. Rebecca Zanetti continues to captivate with her ability to blend thrilling action with deep, emotional storytelling. Jase and Brenna’s journey is a compelling exploration of the sacrifices we are willing to make for love and the transformative power of finding someone who sees beyond our scars to the truth of our hearts. As the series progresses, “Shadowed” promises that the adventure is far from over, leaving readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this enthralling saga.
