The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller is a YA Fantasy Romance out now!
“Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:
1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.
No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.
But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?”
I really loved this one!
We follow a main character on a mission to kill and take the throne for herself. I don’t think I’ve ever read a YA Fantasy where the character was born and raised in such a scheming state that even her father knows what her end-game is. It had me so intrigued that I couldn’t put it down until I knew what was going to happen!
If you love dark YA stories with villainous characters who are motivated and on the rise, you definitely need to check this one out now!
A 4 out of 5 stars from me!
