Perfect for fans of Holly Black and Sarah J. Maas.
“Filled with betrayal and intrigue, The Shadow Prince is a dark and twisty novella from an exciting new author!” Katee Robert, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author”
If you’re looking for a quick read to prep you for what seems like a fun, YA Fantasy series, give this one a peek!
It’s one of those stories that lives up to it’s comparison to Sarah J. Maas or Morgan Rhodes with the great world building and complex characters. There are tons of twists even though it is a really short story (compared to the thick tomes we usually experience).
I definitely could see myself continuing on with the series, and give this one 3 out of 5 stars.
