Torn between two worlds.Torn between two lives.
McKenzie Lewis’s ability to read the shadows has put her—and …those she loves—in harm’s way again and again. The violence must end, but will the cost of peace be more devastating than anyone ever imagined?
After ten years of turmoil, the life McKenzie has always longed for may finally be within her grasp. No one is swinging a sword at her head or asking her to track the fae, and she finally has a regular—albeit boring—job. But when a ruthless enemy strikes against her friends, McKenzie abandons her attempt at normalcy and rushes back to the Realm.
With the fae she loves and the fae she’s tied to pulling her in different directions, McKenzie must uncover the truth behind the war and accept the painful sacrifices that must be made to end it. Armed with dangerous secrets and with powerful allies at her side, her actions will either rip the Realm apart—or save it.
When I first opened The Shadow Reader earlier this year I changed my mind about Urban Fantasy as a genre. I felt closer to it and I was truly able to enjoy it. The first book in this series was something that I enjoyed so much and while McKenzie is an character I loved reading about I must also mention Aren the guy that had me from the book one. Then in The Shattered Dark many twists and turns happened, but mostly that book left us with enormous cliffhanger and desire to get this one as soon as possible. You can only imagine my happiness when I got approved for it.
I cannot tell you much about the events that occurred here as it'd spoil the previous books for you, but McKenize is torn between many things. Her normal life and the Realm, which never seems to be far. Then the whole war in Realm is something troubling her and every fae she cares for is in the middle of it. She must find the balance.
This book started with some ups and downs. At first I had some troubles with this kind of love triangle and the whole situation between the three. But then at some point this book took the right pace and started going the best way. I loved the action and romance. Which all reached its peak at the end and left me in tears. It's hard to let go of this one but hell it was such an amazing ride!
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
