Publisher Comments:

McKenzie Lewis has a gift. It allows her access to a world few have seen, and even fewer can comprehend. It’s her secret. And it exists in the shadows…

McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm. It’s a gift for which she has been called insane, one for which she has risked family and friends—and one that has now plunged her into a brutal civil war between the fae.

With the reign of the king and his vicious general at an end, McKenzie hoped to live a more normal life while exploring her new relationship with Aren, the rebel fae who has captured her heart. But when her best friend, Paige, disappears McKenzie knows her wish is, for now, just a dream. McKenzie is the only one who can rescue her friend, but if she’s not careful, her decisions could cost the lives of everyone she’s tried so hard to save.

Synopsis:

A Houston college student, McKenzie Lewis can track fae by reading the shadows they leave behind. For years she has been working for the fae King, tracking rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn't her only secret. She's in love with Kyol, the King's sword-master-but human and fae relationships are forbidden. When McKenzie is captured by Aren, the fierce rebel leader, she learns that not everything is as she thought. And McKenzie must decide who to trust and where she stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

Oleofox, December 29, 2012 (view all comments by Oleofox)
Excellent follow up to The Shadow Reader. I loved seeing the development of all the characters. This book picked up where the last one left off. McKenzie, Aren, Lena and the rest of the rebels are fighting to keep their hold on the palace and to make Lena the new Queen of the realm. We also get to see some glimpses into McKenzie's past and how she met her only human friend, Paige. There is a ton of running around between the realm and Earth in this book. It did make me wish for a more sedate pace, but it was understandable considering the theme of the entire book. I must admit though that the ending was good in that it was a huge shock. It definitely makes you want to read the next book when it is released in order to find out how McKenzie will deal with the major changes in her life.
