FORGED OF SHADOWS by Jessa Slade (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“[F]or readers who love J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood, the Marked Souls series will hit the spot.” (RT Book Reviews)
A leader in the fight against evil, Liam Niall soon finds himself involved with Jilly Chan, a mentor to the homeless who is half-taken by a demon. Though she struggles to remain true to her own soul, Liam's fiercely passionate touch soon leaves a mark of desire on her flesh as enduring as her new demon tattoo.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Renee Raudman. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

The war between good and evil has raged for millennia, but now evil is winning, and the Marked Souls are caught in the middle…
Liam Niall never wanted to be a leader, but after surviving the horrors of the Irish potato famine, he found himself possessed by a talya, a demon in search of redemption. Now, he heads the Chicago talyan in their fight against evil, though he grows weary and plagued by self-doubt. Then he meets Jilly Chan. She's a mentor to local homeless youth and is waging a one-woman war against the drug-dealing slime that preys upon her charges. She's already half-taken by a demon, so Liam reluctantly tries to guide her into full power. Even as the proudly independent Jilly struggles to remain true to her own soul, Liam's fiercely passionate touch soon leaves a mark of desire on her flesh as enduring as her new demon tattoo.
