Of shade and shadow is a fantasy story written about princess Astra and her struggles coming to terms with the war ending and controlling her powers. If that wasn’t enough, she also has to team with Louko, a prince, and bear his sarcastic comments to survive.
The story is filled with a lot of plot twists. The world-building stood out for me as it was original and complex. The pace of the story was steady and kept me intrigued. I really connected with the characters, and that mattered the most. Louko meshed well with Astra, and even though their personalities were so apart, it still worked pretty well.
It is effortless to dissolve into the book and get lost. There were plenty of elements for surprise, suspense, and also, the well-written literature kept you thinking. I felt sympathy and understood how tragic events and trauma in the past could shape and affect someone later in life.
I recommend this book to fantasy lovers and those who likeTweet
