If you are a YA reader who appreciates quality writing, a unique voice and an out-of-this-world plot, and have not yet read David James’ books in his Legend of the Dreamer series, consider this me frowning at you. Hard.
Shadow of the Sun is the 2nd full novel in the series, following a first novel and 3 novellas and as far as I know is intended to conclude the story of Calum and Kate.
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted on Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.
A stunning read for fans of Laini Taylor’s Days of Blood & Starlight and Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys, this lyrical sequel to Light of the Moon and the epic conclusion to the Legend of the Dreamer series will enrapture you.
Destined for love, Calum and Kate will do anything to be together. With Kate trapped by a curse in Ashfall, Calum must find a way to save her before she is lost to dark magic. Before she is lost to him and the truth of their love is gone forever. Even if it means sacrificing himself, Calum will choose to keep Kate safe.
A Warrior for the Order, Zack prides himself on being stoic and strong. As a Warrior, he never cries and never hurts. He does not love. But underneath Zack’s Warrior heart, love beats true. And when he finds someone who will finally catch him, Zack finds himself choosing to fall even if true love kills him.
Though the heart never lies, everyone has a little darkness in them, and soon shadows begin to rise against the light. As deadly magic consumes their world, love may not be enough to save them all. Because even though sometimes being brave just means falling in love, one choice can destroy everything.
This time, no heart is safe.
David James is gifted with such a unique and lyrical writing, every installment in this series was beautiful and mesmerizing for me.
James revealed the cover for Shadow of the Sun yesterday on his Facebook page. Be sure to follow him.
Shadow of the Sun is out January 28, 2014.
