In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.
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.
The Shade Trilogy has been near the top of my favorites list for quite awhile now. I was so in awe when I first read Shade. The world building was so spectacular and definitely some of the best in YA paranormal. The characters were just crazy good and it all made for such an excellent start to a series. Shift was an amazing follow-up. One of those rare sequels that lives up to it’s predecessor. Now here we are at Shine. They very last book in the trilogy and I couldn’t be happier with how it ended.
Shine starts right where Shift left off but this book encompasses many months. Aura is still on the search for what caused the shift but Zachary has also found himself in a bit of trouble and she’s occupied with that as well. I wasn’t a huge fan of that story line. Probably just because I want Zach on ever page of the story, but that’s just me being selfish.
I really loved the last half of the book. Can we say sexytimes? Jeri Smith-Ready is the queen of writing awesome sexy scenes. Zachary is Scottish too….She’s just trying to kill us, isn’t she?
Anyway….Third books are hard to review! So I’ll just leave off with: These books will go down in history as being one of my favorite trilogies ever. I’m so, so happy that it ended one such a good note. I still need to read Jeri’s adult books but I really hope she writes some more YA in the future. If this is a series you haven’t started it you better change that.
