‘Shadow Fall’ is a captivating, imaginative and expertly written YA dystopian novel. Author Audrey Grey blends just the right amount of emotional grit and environmental upheaval with the intrigue of court life, a rebel faction, and two feuding princes.
Readers follow teenager Maia Graystone as she journeys from the darkest, most hopeless place within the asteroid-threatened planet and vies for a spot among the Gold Court on their space station.
Along the way, she struggles with her memories and emotions, and with the very concept of who to place her trust in. Conflicting and suppressed memories of her inventor Father and the hidden messages he left for her further compound her trust issues. Once aboard the space station, her interactions with the Gold Prince, her former betrothed and perfect DNA match have Maia questioning, yet again, where her allegiances lay and whom she should trust. Simultaneously, the more she learns about the Bastard Prince helping her in the Trials, the more internally conflicted she feels.
Perfect for fans of Rachel E. Carter’s ‘Black Mage’ series!
