Shadow by Amanda Sun

Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages: 69 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Released: 1st of June 2013

Katie Greene’s worst nightmare comes true when her mother dies, and she’s devastated to learn that she will have to leave the only home she’s ever known. Desperate to find where she belongs, she must decide if she has what it takes to start a new life across the ocean. 

For Yuu Tomohiro, every day is a nightmare. He struggles to control his strange ability, and keeps everyone at a distance so they won’t get hurt—even his girlfriend, Myu. At night, a shadow haunts his dreams, and a mysterious woman torments him with omens of death and destruction. But these haunting premonitions are only the beginning…

What I Have To Say 

This was a really great set up for Ink, reading it has made me really, really excited for the release date. 

It had a really emotional start, showing how hard it is for a teenager to lose the single parent who's raising them. The emotion cam through really well, both at the funeral scene and the time after between then and Katie moving to Japan. 

The feelings Katie has when reaching Japan are really interesting too and show well the cultural shock and disorientation of moving to an entirely different country. 

I've been looking forward to Ink for a while now and reading Shadow has made it so that I just can't wait for the release. 

Shadow is only available for ebook and is dirt cheap on Amazon, so I really recommend getting it. You don't need a reader, I downloaded kindle for desktop and read it there. Apparently it's free on for Nook but that seems to only be available in the States.

  1. Hi,
    Great Review. I've got both Ink and Shadow on my phone, so I'm glad to hear Shadow won't disappoint.
