I said it in my review of A Chosen Life, and I’ll say it again here. I LOVE that the books of The Chosen Chronicles fly in the face of so many “typical” paranormal romances. The uncertain, unaware, and somewhat fearful protagonist is male, and the strong, capable love interest is female. There is something so refreshing about reading a story that doesn’t have the exact same bones as 400 other novels that came before it.
Shadow Prison picks up right where A Chosen Life left off, with Tolen reeling over the realization of his destiny. Macy is struggling to stay angry with him after blaming him for Bastian’s death, but she can’t quite bring herself to walk away and abandon her promise to keep him safe. Despite both of their best efforts, sparks begin to fly between them in way that is engaging and realistic.
One of the better parts about this series: Tolen is clearly meant to become this zenith champion who is a strong, capable leader. BUT unlike other novels that focus on having only one major hero, Tolen receives a counterbalance in the form of Macy. As a pair they are meant to be unstoppable, although that doesn’t keep Tolen from questioning his leadership and abilities at every turn.
Some of my favorite moments are punctuated by Tolen having a flash of sudden confidence and strength followed by a moment of confusion and uncertainty. Many authors fall in to the trap of creating a character who ascends to a point of perfection so fast they have nowhere else to go. Shadow Prison keeps the reader engaged with a realistic story that takes two steps forward followed by a step back. You can't help but cheer for Tolen and Macy while looking forward to seeing where they go as characters and heroes as the adventure continues.
Another thing worth noting: I am so grateful that the story isn't bogged down by drama. There was plenty of opportunity for the characters to fall in to moody-brooding-mode, and thankfully that didn't happen. Angsty moments were tempered with natural plot devices and distractions to keep the action moving forward, and it made for a very fun and enjoyable read.
If you like reading well-balanced fantasy novels with great characters and a dazzling premise, definitely give this series your time.
The author paints a picture that brings the imaginary world to life.
The book contains many great messages rang true to me - such as – love is eternal, it bridges death, wherever light is darkness cannot be, none of us are ever alone, and choice is a gift of the light.
There is also a love story – with a little twist.
KA has created a world and a story that is rich in detail and she gives you a reason to root for the main characters.
The book concluded with a satisfying ending – yet left you with a cliff hanger to set the scene as the adventure continues.
I would recommend this book – especially to fantasy book fans!
My 16 year old son says: "I really liked the story because it has a really good moral behind it. It is written in a very nice way to read. It was easy to read. It was written in a way that teenagers, or anyone, would love. It was amazing!"
My 14 year old daughter says: "I was able to read this book fast and enjoy it. It had a lot of details. Even though as it didn't have as much as the original, I still liked it. It taught me that light will always defeat darkness. I would recommend that it is good enough for anyone to read."
