"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

That's saying something AGAIN, as YA novels are not on my normal reading list. Yes, I'm still trying to get past that block. However, reading Ashe's story is a complete joy. I love Ms Suttle's Blood Destiny Series but Ashe has pulled me in, tied me up and is holding me hostage.
Shadowed begins approximately a year after the first of the series, Bumble ended. Ashe and his best friend, Sali, are the typical teenagers. They are planning different ways they can finagle a cell phone from their parents. Been there, done that myself. Ashe does find out there are others similar to him when a group of teenagers and their families are relocated to Cloud Chief to keep them safe.
This is a hard review to write as I could inadvertently spoil the book for those who haven't read it yet. Reading Shadowed was extremely relaxing for me. The only thing I can think is Ms Suttle's Blood Destiny Series moves so fast with so many characters, action and plot lines, that Ashe is easier on my nerves. Having said that, there is no lack of plot, characters or action but the pacing is different. More mature readers will enjoy all the nuances of the teen and parents miscues. It was funny really, being a parent myself, I wanted to shake Ashe's parents a couple of times. That's just how Ashe sucks you in. I should be rooting for the parents but I wasn't!! Even without his special powers, Ashe is a young man I wouldn't mind having for a son.
You can read the Legend of the Ir'Indicti Series by itself or to make it more enjoyable, you should also read the Blood Destiny Series. Several of the characters appear in both works (just a teaser, there is a surprise visitor to Ashe, you won't want to miss). It allows you to see more depth and find out more background of the characters.
Oh yeah, the ending is going to blow your mind.
This book is amazingly awesome to followers of all of the author's series and by itself. I'm not a "professional" reviewer by any means, nor am I one that will give out a lot of information. But I do have to say that all of Connie Suttle's books, so far, are fantastic and when you read the series in order, they are even better! It is amazing to see the growth of the writer and the characters from the start to currently. Love the books, love the author, and love the characters! And for those that are put off by others' comments, just give the series a try, it might just make sense if you do.
This time around the government approaches the citizens of Cloud Chief seeking their help in keeping the remaining half-blood children and their families safe. Since the government knows that Ashe is one of the half-blood children and that he is safe behind the witch's spells that protect all the residents of Cloud Chief they hope the same will happen for the remaining children until they can find a better solution.
Ashe and his friends do their best to make the outsiders feel welcome and include them in things but not everyone feels the same way. Just like everywhere else in life their are the ignorant, bigoted people that go out of their way to make them all feel unwanted and try to bully them into leaving. Unfortunately this bullying goes to far and helps to convince one of the half-Elemaiyan children into leaving Cloud Chief resulting in her death while another one of the families suffer the loss of all their possessions and possibly their lives if Ashe hadn't intervened.
Winkler and some of his fellow wolves make an appearance again as do a few vampires from the Blood Destiny series to investigate murders that are taking place in Cordell with the help of Ashe (much to his parents displeasure) which all leads back to the people that are trying to harm the half-Elemaiyan children.
Sadly the war between the Bright and Dark Elemaiya has come to Cloud Chief and nobody will be safe once they break through the protection spells!
Or will they?
Although the Legend series is about kids (my daughter thought it would not be interesting) I still find it intriguing and page turning. You just want to know what will happen next even to the last page you want more. The most unfortunate thing I have found is that I have to wait 2 months for each new book to each series and it only takes a day to finish as I can't put the book down.
