RT Book Reviews Magazine has named Shadows one of its “Top Picks” in Fantasy for August, with a glowing 4 1/2-star review (the same rating given to Masks, which was also shortlisted for Best Fantasy Novel of 2013 in the RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Awards).
The review isn’t online yet (although as you can see, I have a copy forwarded to me by my Penguin publicist), but I couldn’t be happier with it. Written by Annalee Schuck, it says:
“Fans of Masks will not be disappointed with Blake’s amazing sequel, Shadows. The magic continues in this enthralling adventure, grabbing the readers’ interest and holding it until th final page. Each chapter brings a new twist in the already sensational story. Blake creates the perfect mix of adventure and romance as the main character, Mara Holdfast, struggles to come of age in a world that is quickly changing. Mara’s struggle is relevant to readers of any age.”
Shadows comes out on August 5.
