Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week:
“The Shattered Dark (McKenzie Lewis/Shadow Reader #2)” by Sandy Williams
Summary: 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 among 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.
Why?: The first book really surprised me – I thought it was just going to be another typical PNR/chicks in leather pants urban fantasy book and it totally wasn’t. So I’m definitely excited for this next book in the series! I’m glad that we’re more or less done with the war part of things, so it’ll be interesting to see how the whole thwarted love triangle (which was done rather well in the first book – I didn’t hate it, and it was used sparingly up until the end) after McKenzie’s made her choice, as well as her trying to deal with real (non-faerie) life. I can’t wait!
