Can the past ever stay dead?
I've escaped the hunters guild twice. Which begs the question why I'm going back now.
At least this time I have my vampires with me. The men who are proving to be more than just allies.
My name is Ashryn Barker and I'm going to be your downfall.
Tarnished Illusions is a paranormal reverse harem and the final installment of the completed Ashryn Barker trilogy. Please be aware that some scenes may trigger readers sensitive to violence.
About the Author
Laura really needs to get around to writing a better biography. She's great at doing them for her friends, but not so much for herself. Until then...she's a USA Today Bestselling Author of Paranormal, Reverse Harem & Fantasy Romance...the romance being the important bit! From kelpies to dragons, and princesses to bakers, there's a wide range of heroines, with one thing in common: they know how to look after themselves. (But the romance is fun too!)
When she's not writing, you can find Laura reading, cooking, baking or binge watching one of three TV shows. Or Pitch Perfect. She's been known to watch that a couple of times in a day.

Ashryn Barker was one of the top vampire hunters in the Guild until she became a vampire herself. This caused her to learn first hand that not all vampires are evil. They helped her realize that what the Guild was doing was wrong.The Guild took in children as young as six, training them in all the ways a vampire can be killed, while indoctrinating them to believe Vampires are all evil and must be killed. They are not given a choice. This is all they know. What becomes of Ashlyn on a solo mission where the vampires were waiting for her? Unlike the Guild, they did not kill arbitrarily but would rather save someone by turning them and allowing them a choice as to how to live their life. This is how Ashryn’s became a Vampire. At the same time, in order for vampires to have a choice and be able to have a life, the Guild must be defeated, obliterated. Otherwise the cycle of raising and training children to hate and kill will never end. This is the third book of the trilogy. As such, I had expected to learn more about Ashryn’s relationships with the four vampires in her life. More background on the four male vampires in Ashryn’s life would have fleshed out the story more. Only little snippets of rushed conversations and kisses provide clues as to what might happen if the Guild is defeated. The author did a great job in expressing Ashryn’s different emotions throughout the book. Most notably those when she was conflicted between her training, her conscience and her friendships. Well worth the read. I received this book from Booksprout in return for an honest review.
Tarnished Illusions: A Paranormal Reverse Harem by Laura Greenwood is a wonderful story to read. This is book number three in the series ,I loved reading this story and I highly recommend this to everyone. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Tarnished Illusions - This is the final story in the Trilogy. Ashryn is looking to finish what was started in book 2. This means not only dealing with the place she grew but also her men. Life seems to get more complicated at points in this story leading you to question how it’s going to end.
I really like this series and Ashryn. I like that Ashryn stays true to herself :) while the series is complete, I do feel there is an opening for future Ashryn books :)
