THE SHATTERED DARK (Shadow Reader #2)
RELEASE DATE: Oct 2012
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm. It’s a gift for which she has been called insane, one for which she has risked family and friends – and one that has now plunged her into a brutal civil war among the fae.
With the reign of the king and his vicious general at an end, McKenzie hoped to live a more normal life while exploring her new relationship with Aren, the rebel fae who has captured her heart. But when her best friend, Paige, disappears McKenzie knows her wish is, for now, just a dream. McKenzie is the only one who can rescue her friend, but if she’s not careful, her decisions could cost the lives of everyone she’s tried so hard to save.
I love this, much more than the cover for the first book. It’s a gorgeous colour and I love the chick’s stance, her outfit, with just a enough belly showing for it to have that little bit of sexiness. But she’s also got a slight glimmer of the ‘badass’ about her too, and with holding the sword I’m assuming she knows how to use it! Really fab.
I like this cover. It’s got both an urban fantasy and fantasy feel to it. I love the woman’s stance and the way her sword is glowing, she looks like one tough cookie. The lilac background is pretty, I’m not totally sure what is going on with the little illustrations, I haven’t read the series which might help, but it kind of makes me think of fairies. Also, I want her boots!
