Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift.
As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart. (Goodreads Excerpt)
I have to say I really enjoyed this book as much, if not more than, the first (Shade). The story grows and answers more questions for the reader. I was intrigued by the whole ghost/shade/solid aspects of the non living characters and the concept of the shift. The reasons for and the result of the shift are so original and well thought out. I don’t want to give anything away so I will leave it at that.
I am not usually a fan of love triangles, but this one works well with the story line, especially given that one of them is dead. You assume that she will end up with Zachary, or does she? Like I said the book is intriguing and original and leaves you guessing.
There is a lot more drama and action in this one, which I found exciting and pulled me further and further into the story. You get to read the missing pages of the journal and find out a lot more information about the shift. The story is compelling from front to back and I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read the next book Shine.
5 stars for me.
