A Houston college student, McKenzie Lewis can track fae by reading the shadows they leave behind. For years she has been working for the fae King, tracking rebels who would claim the Realm.

When McKenzie is captured by Aren, the fierce rebel leader, she learns that not everything is as she thought. And McKenzie must decide who to trust and where she stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

    I'm partial to urban fantasy books about the fae and this one didn't disappoint. This is the first book in a trilogy and I really enjoyed Sandy Williams' storytelling.

    Could not put this down! Riveting Read

    Awesome, could-not-put-down, had-me-on-the-edge-of-my-seat, ticks-all-the-boxes read! The Shadow Reader is totally addictive! I was taken on a roller coaster ride into the life of McKenzie and the Fae world. I was hooked from the first page and found the characters captivating, the story fast paced and well-written, and the plot unpredictable and full of suspense. I read the book in two days and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I loved how the author portrayed Aren and Kyol as fallible, each with their strengths and weaknesses, and how McKenzie’s view of life changed from ‘black and white’ to ‘shades of grey’. She has to determine whether other’s feelings for her are true or just a manipulation to coerce her into helping their cause. I felt her doubt and confusion as she uses all her instincts, abilities and resources to survive and make the right choices. This book has it all – heart-breaking love, non-stop action, strong believable characters and a well-written unpredictable plot. The Shadow Reader is a riveting, heart-wrenching read for lovers of urban fantasy and the paranormal. You will not be disappointed!

    Engaging and fun

    The story was told in quite an original way - I liked it even though at one point I did check if this was the first in the series as so much had happened as part of the story premise. For what it was, the story had quite a few unpredictable elements and was a fun read.

    Fun tale

    Good story a little long winded and cliche

    The Shadow Rider

    Romance and the Fae, what a mix. I must admit this story kept me reading to find out what happens next. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
