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.
This series continues to amaze me, every book is just amazing. Radiant Shadows was simply amazing. At first, I was a bit bummed we wouldn’t hear from Ash like all the other books had, but instead we hear more from the Dark Court and Ani and Devlin. I soon forgot about Ash and was all for hearing more about Ani and Devlin. It was exciting and new.
The plot was awesome. The Dark Court has always been my favorite court of the 3, and Radiant Shadows allows you a much better look at it. Radiant Shadows is a book of adventure. You learn more about Faerie and the mortal world both.
Characters, oh the characters, I love all the characters in Marr’s Wicked Lovely Series. I loved Ani and Devlin both. I loved the chemistry between the two and how despite all the troubles they have in their lives, they still are drawn to each other.
This is an awesome read you don’t want to miss! It’s packed to the brim with adventure, tension, and a fast paced plot. This is a worthy continuation of the Wicked Lovely series, and I cannot wait for book 5!
