Review

"O'Neale has delivered an action-packed, adrenaline filled ride, which is the perfect prequel to the Mortal Enchantment series. From the very beginning, the pace is set at fast forward, drawing the reader through myriad tense and exciting moments. There is so much conflict in this story, that the characters move from one crisis to another, keeping the reader galloping happily along to the end, eager then for the next installment in the series."

PJV Quickie: While only 74 pages, including the preview of MORTAL ENCHANTMENT, the novella, THE SHADOW PRINCE packed one hell of a punch. You wouldn’t believe that so much story could be told in that little amount of pages, but I could not put my iPad down! THE SHADOW PRINCE had me hooked from page one.

REVIEW: In the prequel to MORTAL ENCHANTMENT, O’Neale (shout out to Book Blogger turned author – hoorah!) introduces us to hottie, fire elemental, Rowan. Heir to the Fire Court throne, Rowan is pretty much a loner. His morals keep him away from his mother’s court because of her vicious and violent tendencies and his disagreement with the way the court is run, especially in how the Hounds, half-breed, shape-shifting, elementals, are treated. When Rowan is summoned to his mother’s court, because of her supposed abdication of the thrown, Rowan is at first suspicious, but then he begins thinking about all the changes he can make once he is in charge. When his mother gives him a task to complete before his coronation – kill the Air King’s daughter – Rowan knows he must push aside his morals for the greater good. His reign could end the slavery of hundreds, all he has to do is sacrifice one life…one innocent life.

If you’ve ever tried to come up with a crazy fantasy world, you’ll know how hard it is, then try to pack all that exposition within 74 pages and make sense…even harder. Then make it read well, without having a forced telling feel, where the author just recites facts, is even harder. THE SHADOW PRINCE is an amazing story, written well, with a unique story and intense plot. O’Neale is one hell of a storyteller. I was instantly drawn into this world of elemental courts and odd shape-shifters that were nothing more then slaves.

Thoughts: OMG I could not put this down! And ARGH....cliffhanger from hell! This was an awesome tease of what is to possibly come and I can't wait to read the next one. This story is told from Rowan's point of view and boy is it easy to fall in love with him. You can't help but feel bad for him as you get to know his mother, yikes she's horrible. I love the world that Ms. O'Neale has created and look forward to visiting it again as soon as I possibly can. This quick read will have you engrossed until the very end where you will end up screaming and scrabbling to get the next book. I've already got my hands on it and can't wait to start it!

First off I want to say that this is a novella and a prequel to the Mortal Enchantment series and it is a Young Adult fantasy series.

I read this on the Saturday night and I am glad it was short because I just couldn't stop reading it. It was exciting and it got my hooked . There is a cliffhanger and it got me to want to read the series to find out what happened next.

This novella is very well written and like I said it will make you want to read what happens next right away.
I highly recommend The Shadow Prince by Stacey O'Neale .

I give this 5 out of 5

I need more! Talk about a fabulous teaser! The Shadow Prince introduces readers to debut author, Stacey O'Neale's Mortal Enchantment Series. What a fabulous story this is. It gave me everything I love in both a fantasy and a paranormal YA story. I just wish this wasn't a novella. I didn't want this story to end so soon.

Following the story of Rowan, heir to the Fire Court Thorne. In a world that's currently ruled by his brutal mother, the Queen of the Fire Court, Rowan stands out. He's not someone who supports what his mother does. Her treatment of the hell hounds, and other elementals that live within his world, is brutal, and something he wants to be put an end to. It's not until he's summoned to the court, and offered the chance to take the throne, does he begin to see that there's a possibility that he can change the way things have been run. Of course, nothing is what it seems with his mother, and he knows there's something more going on. If he wants to change how the court is run, he just might have to deal with the consequences of taking what his mother is offering, even if it means going against what he feels is right, and killing the Air Court Princess, as his mother said he has to do in order to claim the thorn.

Stacey O'Neale gave me everything I loved in this novella. Fabulous and well developed characters, a fantastic fantasy world with just enough detail that made it easy for me to visualize her unique Avalon. An in-depth plot that is so well written, and drew me right in, leaving me wishing this novella had another 200 pages to it. The Shadow Prince novella is the perfect introduction to O'Neale's debut series. It's one that promises plenty of twists, betrayals, action, and getting to know more about these characters as the series continues.

The author was smart in putting out this free prequel novella. It sucks you in and leaves you wanting more. If there wasn’t a preview of the first chapter of the next book, I would have jumped off the cliff hanger!

We have the hero, sixteen year old Rowan. He is mature for his age. He is also heir to the fire elements throne in Avalon. His mother requests his presence from the mortal realm because he is to except his place. He is wary, because his mother is nothing more than a bully and has never had any love for her only biological child. She cares for the two adopted siblings of Rowan. Rowan knows there is something that his mother wants from him to give him the throne. He decides he will do whatever it takes to get her off the throne and have peace and not fear that now lives in the Fire area of Avalon.

He is right, she wants him to kill Kalin who is supposed to be a half breed now living in the mortal realm. His mother says she is a risk to all of Avalon. He doesn’t believe it and says he will do it. But Rowan is a good person and cannot do it! Instead, he becomes taken with her. When he returns with failure, his mother punishes him by having his best friend, a shifter, remove his wing which leaves him bleeding and could possibly be death. But his best friend takes him to the air throne where the King there, the father of the girl he was supposed to kill, can heal him. Rowan tells him everything.

The king talks with the council and leaves a death sentence on Rowan’s mother. She does die but not by guillotine as was ordered since her adopted children rescue her and Rowan ends up killing her instead.

Rowan is supposed to be king.
