Fate has won. 

The realms have been severed...but the fight’s still far from over. 

It’s been three months since the devastating battle that closed the way through between this world and the demon realms but Evie’s still reeling from all she's lost.

When news reaches her that a group of Originals is on the prowl in LA and growing in numbers, Evie must decide whether to join the rogue Hunters in a final battle or fight her fate one last time.

The way through might be closed. But that doesn’t mean Evie’s got closure.

The Review: 4.5 Stars!

You all know how much of a fan I am of Sarah Alderson’s work because she continually knocks out fantastic and well written work and after reading Shadowed, I don’t think I could ever be disappointed with her work. It definitely lived up to every expectation I had.

In Shadowed we see Evie deal with the aftermath of the events from Fated and honestly, it’s not easy but once again, the world she lives in never stops and she soon has to team up with the remaining Rogue Hunters to stop more evil. 

I really loved Shadowed! I literally devoured it within 24 hours because it’s just so hard to put down.  This finale brings so much excitement but mostly it brings suspense. If you’ve read this series you will know there are two major characters who aren’t present because of the events in Fated but don’t worry, Sarah manages to bring these two great characters back into the fold and honestly, without them it wouldn’t have been the same. 

Evie is such a great character. It’s hard not to love her. I loved how much more emotional she was this time around and Lucas, yes, I love him too. Always and forever! And Cyrus, I think he should have his own story, seriously he's an awesome character.

Now for the ending, for a finale I felt the story was left wide open – an epilogue would have been fantastic but, I can kind of see WHY that couldn’t have happened now. It’s not something I can explain unless you’ve read the story because otherwise it will ruin the whole experience of this book for you, but yeah, I felt like Evie and Lucas’s story isn’t over.  I’ve heard Sarah may re-visited this series in the future and I so hope she does, maybe not even a full length book but a novella set like 20 years into the future would be awesome. 

In all, Sarah Alderson amazes me once again and Shadowed is nothing short of amazing! If you haven’t read this series, then I highly suggest you do, you need to visit this wonderful and exciting world.

An open ending that doesn't feel frustrating? I'm very curious about that right now! I didn't like FATED as much as Sarah's HUNTING LILA, but I will definitely read this 2nd book in the series now after reading your review.

With havin so much content and articles do you
ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.
