4.5 stars/5 stars.
I loved it! It’s much better than the previous two in my opinion. Shadow Kiss is much darker than the predecessors.
Shadow Kiss was packed with action! I liked the plot in this one much more than the others. It was fast paced and had me on my toes.
All of the characters developed and relationships changed, particularly between Rose and Mia, Dimitri and Rose, Lissa and Rose and many more. I liked how Mason had his own little part in the story because I thought he was a good character. It also captures Roses’ vulnerability which made her character feel more real.
There are some seriously heart wrenching moments in this book! :( In my copy there was a little snippet of ‘Blood Promise’ and I cannot wait to find out what happens! I’m devouring these books!
