Recent Reads: Radiant Shadows

Book: Radiant Shadows (Wicked Lovely #4) by Melissa Marr (April 2010)
Book Count: 11
Genre: YA Paranormal

If you haven't already read any of Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely books, check out my Recent Read's post on the first 3. I have to say, though, once you've gotten into those first couple of books, it's amazing how sucked into this world you get. The narrators have changed in each story and it makes the world more complete, because you see this same place through so many different perspectives.

Ani's a halfling, daughter of the Dark Court's Gabriel and a mortal, but she's not like her halfling brother and sister, Rabbit and Tish. She knew she was different long before the others figured it out. But what Ani doesn't know is her connection to Devlin, the High Court's assassin and the brother to both Reason and War. When Ani and Devlin cross paths again, Ani finds that Devlin's the only one who can help her, if she'll only let him.

Another amazing story from Ms. Marr! Ani's not a monarch, she's not even a fey. But she's now forced to live among the fey because of how special she really is, she has to find her place among them, or she has to make one. And that's one of those things that everyone faces.

Loved this book, just like the others. And for those with a Seth Morgan crush (like me ;D) he's totally in this book!

Kate - Oh my, how could you not love yourself some yummy Seth-goodness?

Jen - I definitely recommend the whole series, they are a little dark, but really well done.

I do love the covers of these books. I read WL, but couldn't get into the others. Maybe I need a second read?
