review The Shadow Reader 103 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 c. Story Did you ever wish there would be books like the a court of thorns and roses series Filled with fae and magic badass female characters and a funny handsome bad boy There s a war going on in the fae world between the king his followers and the rebels In the middle of it is McKenzie a shadow reader one of the strongest weapons agains the rebellion One day McKenzie gets captured by the rebellion and soon her world is shook Who can she trust Who is lying And who should sit on the throne That was a book I couldn t lay down First of all the main character is so funny and so freakin stubborn She was constantly trying to run away and in the end I always smiled reading the dialogues between Aren and McKenzie This is definitely a book that has a nice pacing is filled with action and a little bit of love and heartbreak Definitely worth reading Characters Oh McKenzie our wonderful main character you go girl You are so stubborn so creative in getting away from the rebellion that you don t even mind getting hurt And you re so intelligent I was in love with you from page one McKenzie was definitely my favorite character in this one I wouldn t say she had a character development in the end but did she find her kind brave heart But one thing was a little bit sad to see McKenzie was nearly always saved by someone She wasn t a girl who could save herself but at least she tried to she didn t want to rely on someone That was a nice start maybe it gets better with the next books Aren was the Rebell who captured McKenzie and tried to get her to work for the rebellion He was a funny handsome and kind guy who could be sassy sometimes I loved him He was never brutal or mean to McKenzie He always treated her good I liked that about him Kyol was her partner and guard send by the king of the fae She worked with him for over ten years for the king Kyols biggest character treat was his loyalty to the king This man was so loyal I never doubted it Never ever He wouldn t betray the kingdom for McKenzie even though if he would have they could ve been together But he didn t The best thing about the book was that I liked all the side characters I was interested about what happened to them and if they survived and when they died I was actually pretty sad I especially loved the female badass characters in this one Lena and Keira if you want someone who is loyal brave and ready to fight you should definitely choose these two ladies World This is probably the hardest thing to describe but so so important The world building was great in this one not perfect but still really enjoyable We have a great magic in here we have the fae who are invisible to humans if they don t want to be seen and who produce little lightings when touched by a human The fae move from world to world by portals and through the worlds through little rips they create in the world They step through them and step right into another place Also they re bonds between two fae when they re bonded their power is put together and they can feel each other through rooms and places They feel where the other is Next to the awesome jumping through places talent they can also use heat and fire to burn people or heal them with their power There are other special talents but I don t want to spoiler so just know that there is Next to the awesome fae we have human shadow readers who can locate the fae by reading the shadows after they disappeared into a rip through the world They also can see through illusions All in all there is an awesome magic system in there and so many places to discoverAlso we jump between the human world and the fae realm which makes everything so much interesting They even went to Germany how cool is that My favorite thing about the whole world was when humans and fae touched their touch is addictive And as long as they touch little Lightnings or sparks jump through their skin It seemed like a really beautiful and magical thing Relationships Oh boy I don t even now if I want to be called Kaesha or Nalkin Shom For a proper explanation you should read the book but i would probably choose the second name I m team Aren always was always will Yes I know you think what there is a love triangle in it Yeah it has a love triangle but I didn t really saw that as a problem I m not a fan of love triangles don t get me wrong but only when they re absolutely useless and stupid But this one was kind of nice I liked it I liked McKenzie and her chaos of feelings Writing style Sandy Williams is no Leigh Bardugo or Sarah J Maas but her writing was still really nice with a nice pacing funny dialogues and action It was always entertaining never boring but it wasn t a beautiful or special writing I couldn t even find a proper uote I could use in the beginning But still try out the book It was definitely worth a read Ps if you hate Acotar etc don t read this book You ll probably hate this one too Strangers in India reading the shadows they

review The Shadow Reader 103 N 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 wa. When a person writes a review the first thing they have to do is think about what they want to say about the book and what is worth mentioning After reading a few reviews on this book I m thinking that my idea of prioritizing must be completely different from everyone else s Somewhat frustrating love triangleblah blah blahA few similarities to Dark Swanblah blah blahHeroine who really should have known better about a few thingsblah blah blahGreat action for a first bookblah blah blahNo cliffhanger endingblah blah blahMischievous hitchhiking pet which is a mix of a cat and a ferretblah blahWHATWhy did no one tell me about the kimki Where are your priorities peopleedit to add that Wendy Darling did in fact mention the Kimki but I missed itOkay so maybe this was important to me than it was to all the other people who actually cared about the story Silly people Did no one else have a love for the cheesy 80 s movie Beastmaster You know the one where the little ferrets would follow their master around I can not tell you how much I wanted creatures to come to me whenever I called after watching this movieIf ferrets aren t your thing then how about a falconEither way creatures at your beck and call game winnerAlthough I m pretty sure that I pictured Aren from the book to be much attractive than the beastmaster guy And since I ve already mentioned one of the men in Shadow Reader I will now go back up to the top of my original listSomewhat frustrating love triangle It was Up until the end of the book I was not a fan I don t like how we were made to believe that the love McKenzie had for Kyol was super strong yet she immediately started having feelings for another man played off as chaos lusters and Stockholm Syndrome The point could be made that maybe the original love was based on familiarity and dependency so there was a reason she might gravitate toward another person but I still felt like the love triangle could have built slower Howeverthe way the ending of the first book was handled without a cliffhanger made me pleased with the way things turned out For those who are not fans of love triangles and don t mind a small spoiler click this because it might make you feel better about trying the book view spoilerShe chooses one man by the end of the book and her decision is solid The love triangle has been officially deactivated from what we can see hide spoiler
