Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.
As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves...even if that means betraying her own heart.
My Review :
I feel extremely blessed to have read some amazingly good books lately. However from all my favourite authors and new finds I was missing Jeri Smith-Ready. Why? Because she always tells a super story and she never fails to surprise and thrill me with her words. So I was very excited to see that a new book was due out. I pre-ordered it of course! Shine is the third last part in the Shade trilogy and anyone who has been following Aura's story will know that it hasn't been easy so far. I can tell you that the end is no fun holiday either.
Emotionally filled, like all of her work, this is Young Adult story certainly makes an impact. The intriguing concept and plot have been building up to this final piece of the puzzle. This is where is all comes together and makes complete and perfect sense for every reader. To find out what exactly happens means you will have to read Shine yourself. I am not giving anything away. What I can say is that it was worth the wait and totally and utterly perfect.
I loved so much about this series and this final installment. The author makes the characters come alive in a way that makes you adore her even more. The details she adds about the places the characters visit is just alluring. I wanted to jump on a plane and go there straight away. However what makes her work just that little bit more seductive is the music. There is always a background of bands and songs that makes it all so much more personal.
If you haven't already tried this trilogy you can start it now and read it all in one giant gulp. If you have been waiting for this last part of the story then you really need to go get a copy. Beg, borrow or steal it and curl up and get a tissue ready. You may just need it.
Already done? Make sure you try out all of Jeri's other books. I can't live without her amazing passionate stories. I can't wait for the next 'gift' the author sends us!
