She was undoubtedly a shade, but I didn’t know her.
Eric Welborn isn’t completely human, but he isn’t the only shade in the small Midwest town of Hayworth. With one year left before his eighteenth birthday, Eric is destined to win a long-raging war for his kind. But then she happens. In the middle of the night, Eric meets a nameless shade, and she’s powerful—too powerful—and his beliefs are altered. The Dark has lied to him, and he’s determined to figure out exactly what lies were told, even if the secrets protect his survival.
He had gotten so close to me—and I couldn’t move—I couldn’t get away.
Jessica Taylor moves to Hayworth, and her only goal is to find more information on her deceased biological family. Her adoptive parents agree to help on one condition: perfect grades. And Jessica is distraught when she’s assigned as Eric’s class partner. He won’t help, let alone talk to her, but she’s determined to change him—even if it means revealing everything he’s strived to hide.
I want to firstly thank Shannon for kindly providing me with a copy of this book to read & review!
This is my first time reading from something from Thompson, but it certainly won’t be the last. The storyline was addictive, the characters loveable.
It was Light vs Dark
Good vs Evil
but not in the form we would expect, the Dark ones, were the good guys for a change.
This would be the second book I have read with shades in, and they just keep getting better and better.
I definitely enjoyed reading both P.O.V’s, a BIG score from me for this!
As a reader you fall head over heels for Shoman…..who you ask? read the book and find out the mystery…
You felt for the pain of Jessica’s history, her pain at not knowing her parent….
This is a story of forbidden love
and a war of love
I can’t wait to read the next instalment, especially after the way things ended…..
