Love ties them together. Death can’t tear them apart.
Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan’s band playing a critical gig and Aura’s plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend’s life. She never thought it would be his last.
Logan’s sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He’s gone.
Well, sort of.
Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan’s violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.
It doesn’t help that Aura’s new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.
As Aura’s relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura’s heart…and clues to the secret of the Shift.
I had been looking forward to Shade for ages. Since then, I have heard nothing but wonderful things. Some crazy part of me hasn’t allowed myself to read it before now, and now I’m sitting here going WHY? Shade was absolutely amazing and completely original.
I love love loved the concept of this one. It was completely unlike anything I have ever read before and I absolutely loved it! I loved the twists and turns the plot took – I could never really guess what would happen. I always had guesses, and a few times my guesses were even right – but for the most part it was just read as fast as I could so I could see what would happen next.
The characters were an absolute joy to read about. Aura was a great character. I loved I can’t wait to see more of Eowyn in Shift – she was such a fascinating character who I totally think has some bigger role in the next book. I fell for Zachary right away – I loved the accent!
Shade is a book you do not want to miss. It is a super promising start to a great new series. The concept is fresh and new and the plot will keep you reading! I couldn’t put it down once I started – I read up late into the night so I could finish. Absolutely brilliant.
