I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Oh Kellen, I just love your story so much! 😍 Shadowblack was everything I hoped it would be and more – I particularly liked that it twisted my expectations and did something a bit different (and even better!) I love the originality of this series and that Kellen is still relying on his smarts, even if that doesn’t always work out and he gets hit 😉
This book in particular really just got better and better as I went through – it has the sense of widening up their universe and setting the scene for the rest of the series, and while also managing the self contained story for this book which is truly excellent. I loved the twists towards the end, and Kellen coming to realise a bit more about who he wants to be. Also top marks for him being sad about liking a girl who is potentially unavailable but also just dealing with that. 👍🏻
So yeah – go read this book when it comes out. I will definitely be buying this in hardback and getting the next one in the new year 😍😍
