further development with Isabel and her Beau I wish we sawof Matt and his gal s relationship as well asof Neriah I like Neriah s character a lot.It was still a fun read that made you want to read to

time Everything I wanted to happen, happened It felt like everything I d known for the last ten years was a lie and it was such a good feeling I re read the whole series before I read The Shadow and so my heartbreak was fresh going in Everything that my little fangirl heart could have asked for to fix it was given to me and I m so happy The ending was perfect because it rounded off one story and left the door open for their future story I don t know whether we will ever see that story, but I for one, would love to read it How poetic is it that a series about time travel made me travel back to my childhood I was 8 when The Key was published in 2005, but I only discovered the trilogy when I was 10 I remember I found the first two books at my local bookstore, translated copies of my mother tongue language I bought the first one, thinking it seemed interesting I started reading it at night when I was in my bed, and soon after my mom started coming to my room every five minutes telling me to turn off the lights, i How poetic is it that a series about time travel made me travel back to my childhood I was 8 when The Key was published in 2005, but I only discovered the trilogy when I was

when I was in my bed, and soon after my mom started coming to my room every five minutes telling me to turn off the lights, it s past my bedtime When she seemed too mad to argue with any, I turned off the light, waited for her footsteps to die down, then went under covers with a flashlight, the way every child should The next day I demanded my mom to go to the bookstore and get me the second one When I was done with the first two, I made my mom take me to every bookstore in our area, searching for the third When we couldn t find the translated version, we ordered it off , in English It was the first English book I read I remember having a dictionary open next to me, but as it turned out I didn t need it much I read it secretly under my desk at school the next day, and I finished it by that night And in the following eleven years, I ve read it countless many times, so much so that the covers of the books are torn apart, there are years old chocolate stains on the pages, and ripped corners from where I doggy eared my page Every time my dad saw the books on my nightstand, he would chuckle and say, these, again.I ordered The Shadow offon Thursday, and received it six hours ago I m 21 now, alone in a college dorm with no mother near me telling me I should be studying instead, but as soon as I laid my hands on it, I ran into bed, went under covers, and started reading From the very first sentence, I was back in my childhood room, with my stuffed dolphin under my arm, diving into this world in childlike wonder When I read the part in the first chapter where Ethan says it s been one week since the final battle I actually teared up It hasn t been a week, it s been 13 years 13 years since the final book was published, and 11 years since I became a part of the Named But then, it feels as though it really was only a week ago I remember so vividly finding the first book in the bookstore I remember exactly which corner of the store it was in, on which shelf I even remember what the cashier looked like I remember it so well, it could not have beenthan a week ago There s nothingeffective than reading the books you grew up with to be transported to the time when you first found them What I m trying to say is, thank you for the trilogy, and thank you for this additional book, which let me be the one doing the time traveling, and not just the one reading about it It s been a pleasure growing up with your books On another note wow, I wrote enough to create a fifth novel Sorry about that Marianne Curley takes the reader on a beautiful journey back through the characters she created many years ago We see all of our favorites Ethan, Isabel, Arkarian we know most people read just to see what our favorite blue haired ageless mentor is doing , Matt, Dillon, Neriah, and many others Marianne also brilliantly weaves in new characters that seem they have been there the whole time While most continuation to series can leave the reader empty or wanting ,

there the whole time While most continuation to series can leave the reader empty or wanting , Marianne Curley successfully and seamlessly brings this world back to life and transports readers to another world where The Named and immortals are real and protect our world from the powers of chaos.To be honest, I wasn t sure if The Shadow would live up to the last three novels in this series, The Named, The Dark, and The Key, but it surpasses all of my highest expectations This novel is true to the characters and to the story of The Named Marianne Curley s prose takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotion from sorrow to hope to suspense to laughing out loud Legit, I love that Ethan and the others refer to using their wings as wing out to absolute happiness Readers new and old will not be disappointed by this novel It is one of my absolute favorites and one I will read and read again.See full review on blog post
