about

McKenzie Lewis has a gift. It allows her access to a world few have seen, and even fewer can comprehend. It’s her secret. And it exists in the shadows…

McKenzie was a normal college student, save for one little twist: she’s a shadow reader, someone who can both see the fae and track their movements between our world and the Realm. It’s a gift for which she has been called insane, one for which she has risked family and friends—and one that has now plunged her into a brutal civil war between the fae.

With the reign of the king and his vicious general at an end, McKenzie hoped to live a more normal life while exploring her new relationship with Aren, the rebel fae who has captured her heart. But when her best friend, Paige, disappears McKenzie knows her wish is, for now, just a dream. McKenzie is the only one who can rescue her friend, but if she’s not careful, her decisions could cost the lives of everyone she’s tried so hard to save.
Sandy Williams graduated from Texas A&M University with degrees in political science and history. She worked as a librarian until her husband whisked her off to London on an extended business trip. Now she’s back in Texas, writing full-time, raising twin boys, and squeezing in time to play geeky board and card games like Settlers of Ca...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding series! I loved the first book in this series, and was apprehensive that the author may not have been able to maintain the very high calibre in the sequel, The Shattered Dark. My concerns were unfounded - in fact, I think I loved this book just as much as the first, maybe even more. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every page of The Shattered Dark. It was so addictive that I forfeited sleep to keep reading ‘just one more chapter’ and finished it in two days. I became more involved with the McKenzie, Aren and Kyol as their story continues and I was pulled into the Fae world that Ms Williams so vividly depicts. I am emotionally exhausted – it was heart-breaking, moving, powerful, inspiring, compelling, witty and unpredictable. The plot was action-packed, with unexpected twists, painful betrayals, sizzling passion and strong, believable characters. Ms Williams has woven her magic again and I can’t wait to read the next book!
