The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams

There can only be one allegiance. It’s her time to choose.


Some humans can see the fae. McKenzie Lewis can track them, reading the shadows they leave behind. But some shadows lead to danger. Others lead to lies.

A Houston college student trying to finish her degree, McKenzie has been working for the fae king for years, tracking vicious rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn’t her only secret. For just as long, she’s been in love with Kyol, the king’s sword-master—and relationships between humans and fae are forbidden.

But any hope for a normal life is shattered when she’s captured by Aren, the fierce and uncompromising rebel leader. He teaches her the forbidden fae language and tells her dark truths about the Court, all to persuade her to turn against the king. Time is running out, and as the fight starts to claim human lives, McKenzie has no choice but to decide once and for all whom to trust and where she ultimately stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.



Why is this read still on my mind?


I read The Shadow Reader back in 2013 and it was my 4th favorite book read that year,it was such an amazing read from start to finish. It had in depth characters, a love triangle that was done well and had me loving both of the love interests, there was action, betrayal, comedy, and most importantly it had a main character that was very strong, yet never afraid to be vulnerable. This is one of those books that I loved so much that I actually haven't read book 2 or 3 🙈 Sometimes when I love a book so much, it takes myself years to pick up the 2nd book because I don't want it to ruin what a great experience I had in book one.
