Review: The Shepard’s Agony (Things in the Night #3) by Mandy Rosko
David Shepard thought he'd found the love of his life, the reason to leave behind his career of hunting down paranormal creatures.
 
Gwen is exactly what he needs. Smart and beautiful, and more importantly, in love with him despite his inability to tell her what he does for a living.
 
Until he spots the birthmark on her body that marks her as a born werewolf, forcing him to leave without a word. It's her pack that he and his family are targeting, and now he must choose between the loyalty he has to his family, or the love of a woman who might very well literally rip his heart out in his sleep.
 
But he can't believe that Gwen is a wild and dangerous werewolf. Not his Gwen, so when his choice is made, David will prepare for a fight that could cost him the lives of everyone he loves, for the sake of sparing the love of his life.

The Shepard’s Agony by Mandy Rosko is the third entry in the Things in the Night and my absolute favorite. This book has everything you could want in a paranormal and so much more. This well-written paranormal romance has just the right combination romance, with a sprinkling of trouble and sass. I do love when werewolves and vampires are in the same story and The Shepard’s Agony has them both. So many twists and plots that I was on my toes the whole way through until the final HEA.

The Shepards are mentioned several times thorough the series but it isn’t until this book my questions get answered. To my surprise it wasn’t a what but a who…or shall I say several whos. I won’t go into detail so that I don’t give anything away but let me just say I could not put this book down. The interactions and antics between Gwen and David kept me entertained.  Damn near fell over laughing when she kicked him out of the car.  You know love does concur all for this couple especially as they discover each other secrets. There were so many characters to love and sooo many twists to the story, I was up until the wee hours of the morning finishing this book. Seems each character had their own little secret. Some I could predict (can we say Karma!) , some when it came out I found myself thinking ‘NO WAY’. That’s when you know you have a good story. When the author can have you thinking I got this and you don’t. Unpredictability, action packed, great characters and multiple HEAs…yup I definitely found it here. There was a lot going on but I easily had no trouble keeping up. This is easily my favorite book in the series.  I’m thinking of all the characters in this book and I’m ready to read it all over again.

So everyone seems to be hooked up and the Shepards are no longer an issue (Sorry about that spoiler) so I’m guessing this may be the end of the series. I hope not because I truly did enjoy. I’d love to see the story go back to Griffon City. If not then I guess I can live with it. Now even though the Shepards are mentioned in the previous books, The Shepard’s Agony can be read as a stand-all. Although, the whole series was such a great read, I highly recommend reading the whole series. Great stories, great characters…do not miss out on this book!
