Shades of Treason
Shades of Treason - Sandy Williams Lots of action, very little romance, fade to black ending that's basically a cliffhanger.

I liked Ash's attitude, but it's hard to determine if her affections for Rykus are enhanced by the loyalty training. It makes things a little weird when I can't tell if she really loves him or if she's been brainwashed a bit too much. But I like the way these two characters play off each other and I'm very much interested in how things proceed between them while they try to save the universe.

I've got the sequel on my TBR list, but I'm so aggravated with the ending that I'm gonna put it off for a little bit and read something else first.

The Shadow Reader
The Shadow Reader - Sandy Williams 4.25 stars

This was a great start to the series. The Shadow Reader is fast-paced and the action rarely lets up. McKenzie kicks ass and isn't one to wait around to be saved; she saves herself, most of the time.

When she's abducted by the rebels she's been helping the king of the fae fight for the last ten years, she has many uncomfortable realizations. Maybe she's fighting on the wrong side. Maybe the king isn't as good as she thinks. And maybe she's been pining after the king' Sword for ten, long, wasted years.

I enjoyed the world-building, and liked the rebels. Heck, I even liked Kyol, whose biggest fault was his unyielding loyalty to the king. The fight scenes were intense, McKenzie's confusion made her relatable, and the pages flew by; I had a hard time putting this down. I think fans of Karen Marie Moning's Fever series will find something to like here, and at only three volumes, it's not as much of a time investment.

The Shadow Reader - Sandy Williams

I couldn't finish this. I've moved it around and looked at it from time to time and I have no interest in trying to finish it. There's nothing to lift it out of the horde of books that have the same basic plot.

The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams
The Shadow Reader - Sandy Williams

The Shadow Reader begins with McKenzie being told to leave class by a Fae she knows very very well. He says she's in danger. And well, he would be right. When she thinks she's going to get away from the people who wish to take her, she ends up getting kidnapped. The rebels, the Fae who are rebelling against the Court, are the ones who need McKenzie. They do everything they can to show her a different side to the Fae she thought she knew. Now, she's all twisted up inside, and confused. McKenzie must try to figure out whose side she's on before it is all too late.

 

This book was okay. It had an interesting story. But I just couldn't get into very much. At first it was really good, but then it just got slightly boring. And I grew frustrated with the kind of love triangle kind of not. It was a little annoying. Other then that the plot line was pretty interesting, though I realized that I won't continue with this story it didn't hold my interest for very long.
