Radiant Shadows (Review)

By Melissa Marr

Hunger for nourishment.
Hunger for touch.
Hunger to belong.
Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.

Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries' coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani's death.

Ani isn't one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin's plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?

Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series.

Review: I love each book in this series so far (and their covers). They all are so different then most of the fairy books out now. The world Melissa Marr creates in her writing is so real it’s like you can just jump into the book and join the story.

In the beginning of the book I was very confused, probably because it’s been so long since I read Fragile Eternity. After a couple chapters I started to remember what had happened in the last book and Melissa Marr sucked me right into this story. Ani and Devlin were both great strong characters. They both had their issues and problems that made them more realistic (for fairies anyway).

It’s sad to think of the next novel as the last. It’s also always hard for me to finish a series, it’s so sad to let go of these characters that I’ve been reading about for so long. I hope the next book has more of Aislinn and Keenan. (I’m not a Seth fan)
