Book Review: Rakashasa: Shadowfall By Alica Knight

***I received a free copy in exchange for a book review***

To face the rising sun is to have shadows fall behind you. The sun is bright, and my shadow is long.

Katelyn won’t wake up.

Summer has passed and it is winter now in my dreams. Our shared place, our heart, is covered in a thick layer of ice, a barrier the heat of our love cannot warm.

Hope exists in the form of an immortal prophet, but leaving my home has risks, too.

Prophecy and visions, the living and the dead, the sun and the moon. Now I know of the end, and what it will cost me to save us all.

17379634I enjoyed this 5 chapter book. Since the dream world was empty and cold, there were no steamy moments between Aurora and Ishan. In fact, this story was full of drama. Katelyn has been in a two month coma, which if she woke up, who knows what the tribe would have done to her because she knew too much.

New characters were introduced. Sergeant Thomas had interviewed people when he thought Aurora was kidnapped. He was back in the picture because Jacquis was missing. Plus, Cinder may be able to help with the dilemma approaching.

As a reader, I appreciated the set-up to the dilemma. It sounds like it’ll affect everyone, and it could be fatal. It made me anxious for what’s next to come, especially for Ishan.

My favorite lines: 1) No matter what happened, we couldn’t let her free. 2) “It’s possible that…it’s because when the moon covers the sun, I’m going to die.”

I RECOMMEND this book to read.
