Synopsis

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?

Review

If you follow me, you know I discovered Tricia Levenseller last year and I’ve been addicted to her books ever since. The Shadows between us is no exception. I loved that book, the characters aren’t “nice” like the author herself says, she wanted to write a “Slytherin” romance.

Alessandra is a young girl full of potential but her father doesn’t find her interesting. When Alessandra decides to charm the king of shadows, her father doesn’t believe she is capable of such a feat.

First of all, I want you to know that I love Alessandra’s character. She loves boys but especially she loves to use them since she had a sentimental disappointment with her first love.

She knows what she wants, she is extremely intelligent and machiavellian. However she will learn to make friends. She also has a lot of imagination and creativity. She designs dresses that are absolutely sublime.

The King of Shadows is a very mysterious character. He is not quite tangible, shall we say, but I like him. He is charismatic and he wants to find his parents’ killers at all costs.

He’s going to trust Alessandra and I think they are two characters that go perfectly well together. They have the same reactions, they don’t hesitate to make drastic decisions. I like the way their brains work.

I loved the story, the mystery around the king is intriguing, as is finding out who might be guilty. I really loved everything about this book and I can only advise it to everyone.

Tricia Levenseller’s pen is beautiful, she takes us into the story and attaches us to her characters.

Quick word: A must-read book.

Chronique

Si vous me suivez, vous savez que j’ai découvert Tricia Levenseller l’année dernière et depuis je suis accro à ses livres. The Shadows between us n’est pas une exception. J’ai adoré ce livre, les personnages ne sont pas “gentils” comme le dis l’auteur elle mème, elle a voulu écrire un Roma-
“Serpentard”.

Alessandra est une jeune fille pleine de potentiel mais son père ne lui trouve pas d’intérêt. Lorsqu’Alessandra décide de charmer le roi des ombres, son père ne la croit pas capable d’un tel exploit.

Tout d’abord sachez que j’adore le personnage d’Alessandra. Elle aime les garçons mais surtout elle aime les utiliser depuis qu’elle a eu une déception sentimentale avec son premier amour.
Elle sait ce qu’elle veut, elle est extrêmement intelligente et machiavélique. Toutefois elle va apprendre à se faire des amis. Elle a aussi beaucoup d’imagination et de créativité. Elle dessine des robes qui sont absolument sublimes.

Le Roi des ombres est un personnage très mystérieux. Il n’est pas tout à fait tangible dirons-nous, mais je l’apprécie. Il est charismatique et il veut à tout prix retrouver les assassins de ses parents.
Il va faire confiance à Alessandra et je trouve que ce sont deux personnages qui vont parfaitement bien ensemble. Ils ont les mêmes réactions, ils n’hésitent pas à prendre des décisions drastiques. J’aime la manière dont fonctionne leurs Cerveaux.

J’ai adoré l’histoire, le mystère autour du roi est intriguant, tout comme le fait de découvrir qui peut être coupable. J’ai vraiment tout adoré sur ce livre et je ne peux que le conseiller à tout le monde.

La plume de Tricia Levenseller est magnifique, elle nous transporte dans l’histoire et nous attache à ses personnages.

En bref : Un livre à lire absolument.

Initially from a small town in Oregon, Tricia now lives next to the Rocky Mountains with her bossy dog, Rosy. She received her degree in English Language and editing and is thrilled that she never has to read a textbook again. When she’s not writing or reading, Tricia enjoys putting together jigsaw puzzles, playing volleyball, playing OVERWATCH, and watching shows while eating extra-buttered popcorn.
