At the beginning of the month I was all over the place with my reading. Then I felt like I kept wanting to read books that were part of a series… and I needed a break from that. So I asked a book group I am in for stand alone recommends, and a few people suggested The Shadows Between Us. The cover is beautiful and I judge by the cover, haha!
It seems that I read books were the main characters are good, decent people. This book starts off with you meeting Alessandra, and she lets it be known to the reader that she wants to court the Shadow King, marry him, and then kill him. She wants to rule the entire kingdom! All her actions in the first half of the story are to further her goal of murdering the king.
Then slowly but surely her feelings change, and now she is protecting the king from an assassin who is running around the palace! While I figured out WHO the assassin was more quickly than I should of (but maybe because I am an adult and this is a YA book), I liked that I didn’t guess the entire ending, cuz there’s a small twist that I SHOULD of seen, lol.
I highly recommend this book to people who like fantasy novels!
