Mini Review: The Shattered Dark by Sandy Williams

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

This book was amazing! McKenzie gets a sword! I am pretty sure she lost it, and then she gets a dagger. But then she had the sword again later. Or something. There was so much drama between her and Aren. Oh myyyyyy.

In this book she is searching for her friend Paige, and it turns out Paige is searching for her. We meet Naito’s brother. Some conspiracy theories come to light, which I was LOVING, and then the love triangle drama between Aren, Kyol, and McKenzie at the end. It was phenomenal. And I despise love triangles! Poor McKenzie. I really love Aren, but Kyol has begun to grow on me. Sometimes he still feels like a salamander tail, but I guess it’s hard to break years of training.

FYI, Sandy Williams has Aren’s POV written on her website!…

You are welcome.

Grade: 4.5 stars

About the book

McKenzie Lewis has a gift. It allows her access to a world few have seen, and even fewer can comprehend. It’s her secret. And it exists in the shadows…
McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm. It’s a gift for which she has been called insane, one for which she has risked family and friends—and one that has now plunged her into a brutal civil war between the fae.
With the reign of the king and his vicious general at an end, McKenzie hoped to live a more normal life while exploring her new relationship with Aren, the rebel fae who has captured her heart. But when her best friend, Paige, disappears McKenzie knows her wish is, for now, just a dream. McKenzie is the only one who can rescue her friend, but if she’s not careful, her decisions could cost the lives of everyone she’s tried so hard to save.
