Hunger for nourishment.
Hunger for touch.
Hunger to belong.
Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.
Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries' coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani's death.
Ani isn't one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin's plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?
Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series. Excerpt from Melissa’s website.
I really liked Radiant Shadows. Even though it focused on characters other than Aislinn and Keenan and had enough Seth in it to make me more than happy. Even thought I am a bit disappointed in Seth and his decision I still like it.
Radiant Shadows focuses on Ani and Devlin two very different characters whose lives have been intertwined since Ani was little. I love the connection that these two had. I think these two are my favourite couple in the whole series they are just perfect for each other and don’t have to worry about anything tearing them apart.
This novel sets up the series perfectly for an epic finale. I can’t wait to see what Melissa has in store for Seth & Aislinn and Donia & Keenan. I hope each and every one of them received their happy endings but that would just be happy wouldn’t it?
Would it be so bad if the Summer and Winter court were joined between love or the Summer and High Court were joined between love? And who is going to offset the Dark Court? I could see Bananach herself off setting the Dark Court – I definitely see her being all powerful.
