In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.

Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.

As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves...even if that means betraying her own heart.

Short and Sweet:
The Shade series has been a long standing favorite of mine. Jeri Smith-Ready is a wonderful story teller, and it never fails to amaze me how easily I fall into her books. Shine opens shortly after the events of Shift. Logan is finally at peace. Zacharty is heading back home to settle some things. Aura is picking up all the pieces from the events of the last year.

Shine has a bit of a different feel to it than the previous books of the series. It was a little bit more urgent with plenty of twists. Some of which took me completely by surprise. Seriously, finish those first few chapters and you will know exactly what I am taking about.

Final Verdict:
Shine was almost the perfect way to ending this series. I loved, loved how Jeri Smith-Ready wrapped up all the loose ends and brought everything together. Aura and Zachary are one of my favorite couples. Their romance throughout this series is only one of the elements that made the series amazing. It is kinda sad to see the series go. But I am satisified with how everything worked out in the end.
