Summary: Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.
But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.
With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.
With lush writing and a star–crossed romance, Reign of Shadows is Sophie Jordan at her best.
My Thoughts: Oh man, I wasn’t sure what to think before I read this one. I had read a lot of good reviews so I was expecting a lot but I was afraid that wouldn’t happen.
But, wow Reign Of Shadows hooked me from the very first page. WOWZERS!
We are introduced to Luna who has lived in a castle most of her life with another man and women. A man and women older than her but not her actual parents. They have raised her and looked out for her. All they want is her to be safe. I really liked both of them!
Luna’s world is pretty unique. Most of the day is dark so Luna isn’t outside very much. The world building in this one is so neat. I loved it! Reading all the different details were so unique.
Luna has a very strict life. She’s not allowed outside very much. She’s not allowed to do much but to help with the daily chores and to make sure she stays alive. She’s also learned how to fight and keep herself safe.
One day, Luna is outside and meets two boys and a girl. The one who stuck out the most was Fowler. Oh Fowler! He was the strong and silent type. Fowler was such a good character. He was funny, witty, but also very stubborn. I instantly fell in love with him and stayed in love with him throughout the whole book. I loved him!
Honestly, I laughed so many times during this one and gasped a lot of the rest of the time. There were so many twists and turns. Wow. And even a few tears!
Overall: The first few books I read this year were just so-so. But I hope my reading year is more like this book! Exciting and enthralling. I want to say a lot more about this one but I don’t want to give away everything and this one was so good to me! I loved this one so much!
Cover: Love it! I like the colors! It fits.
