About the Book

Crowley’s my name. Some call me Hound, but most don’t live to say it twice.

The goddess Fuamnach kidnapped me when I was a child, she taught me magic, then she made me her assassin and slave. If that was all she did to me, I might’ve escaped and let it pass. But she changed me—in ways I still don’t completely understand.

There’s something inside me… and it hungers.

A blessing and a curse, my shade provides the magic I need to evade Fuamnach while it slowly gnaws away at my life force. Even worse, the entity has recently decided to rebel against me.

Now I’m not just being hunted by a goddess… I’m in the midst of a war for my very soul.

If the shade wins I’ll be trapped inside my body, helpless to resist while it feeds on everyone around me—including Belladonna, the woman I love.

I have to find a way to control the shadow wraith and to stop Fuamnach from hunting me. Only then can Belladonna and I can live in peace.

To do that, I need answers—answers that can only be found in Underhill where I was enslaved and reborn. But if I’m captured there, my former master will delight in torturing me to death over several agonizing centuries. And that’s if she’s feeling generous.

This won’t be the first time I’ve bearded the lion in its den… but one slip, and it might be my last.

(Note to Readers: This urban fantasy trilogy contains elements of light paranormal romance, but it is primarily an urban fantasy action and suspense series with a dark fantasy feel. The first two books have far fewer romance scenes, but the romance is the primary sub-plot in this series. Look for the payoff in this third book. ~M.D.M.)

What Readers Are Saying About This Series:

“Once again, Massey takes a person you really wouldn’t want to be friends with and makes you want to see him succeed. An anti-hero that you root for with every victory; a man that you see finding out unpleasant truths about himself, a man who uses evil magic… and one who you root for to succeed. I have NO idea how I’m going to manage to wait for the next book about Crowley.” ~ Kindle Reader Five-Star Review

“Crowley became the ‘bad boy’ we hated to love in Shade Cursed. Shade Hunted is Crowley’s continuing quest to discover his roots. It is an exciting, shocking, emotional roller coaster ride.” ~ Kindle Reader Five-Star Review

“There’s so much more to Crowley than I ever thought possible. I was intrigued by his story and I came to love him in his own dark, broken way. I can’t wait to see what happens next.” ~ Kindle Reader Five-Star Review

– Joseph Nassise, New York Times, USA Today, and Der Spiegel bestselling author
"M.D. Massey offers bantering humor and action-packed adventure reminiscent of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files… a wonderful read with a snarky hero, quirky characters, bizarre creatures, and dangerous situations."
– Liz Konkel, Readers’ Favorite Reviews
“M.D. Massey’s action-packed novels take the reader on a rollercoaster ride into an immersive universe of quirky gallows humor, nightmarish supernatural creatures, and high octane urban fantasy adventures. The pages are filled with paranormal suspense and a host of monstrous grotesques in plots that teem with twists and turns. And in all this perfectly streamlined chaos, one thing’s for sure; Colin McCool’s never going to stop fighting until he’s saved Austin, Texas, and most likely the entire world.”
– Kit Hallows, Author of The Order of Shadows Series
