In the shadows you will find lust and passion, battles for power, blood, death, and fear. For in the shadows you are carried away to a future that is unknown, it is here that your destiny awaits and you are no longer who you thought you were. You have a thirst.
Giselle is a normal girl; by normal I mean she has a teens attitude, a steady boyfriend, an awesome best friend who would do ANYTHING for her, and a typical school life. Her family isn’t perfect (who is?) but she loves them and her future is looking bright. Graduation is nearing and the world is round, everything is where it should be…right?
Certainly some things you don’t see coming.
Some things are NOT what they seem. How can she be so wrong about someone she loves?
How could she possibly be prepared for the darkness?
I awoke to the light of the moon shining bright into my eyes. Voices hushed and I could hear the anticipation in their whispered voices.
“She is seeking us out. This is truly a night for the Goddess,” one of them gleefully remarked.
Thrust into a life of blood lust and unforseen challenges. Giselle has to awaken the darkness within to survive. The first steps are scary and overwhelming. The thirst is undeniable and laced with seduction. The challenges keep coming forth as her fight for survival threatens to become a war and she doesn’t know who to trust. Enduring heart break and loss, betrayal and fear she undergoes a metamorphosis into an underworld she doesn’t feel part of or understand. However she is no longer her former self. She can never be the same again or return to the way things were. She is something else. She is the future.
Take a bite out of this delicious forbidden fruit and you will be left wanting more. Make no mistake, In The Shadows is a powerful story of vampire prophesy that, like Giselle, will take you by surprise render you incapable of resistance and seduce you with it’s offerings. Julieanne Lynch has skilfully created characters who you can love and hate at the same time, she can make you enjoy the company of the terrifying and fearful of the beautiful. She will make you gasp, she will make you laugh and then she will make you shudder. Be prepared to use all of your senses, reading never smelled so good, tantalised the taste buds or toyed with your pulse like it does in the shadows. Let her weave her spell on you. But be warned. In The Shadows is very hard to put down followed by bitter disappointment as you realise there are no more pages to
turn until the next book comes out.
This is a forbidden fruit you will want to sink your teeth into. Just be careful it doesn’t bite you back as there is no turning back.
