Daring You To Read: Shaedes of Gray by Amanda Bonilla


Daring You To Read is a weekly feature here on Tynga’s Reviews where we dare you to read some of our favorite older releases (at least 6 months old). All the books/series we choose to feature are titles we adored and think you should give them a shot! We think it’s a super awesome way to discover that special book who might have slipped off your radar!

You’ve already read the book? Let’s us know what you thought!
You are accepting the dare? We’d love to know!

If you missed my review a couple of weeks ago, then you missed my glowing comments about Amanda Bonilla’s original urban fantasy world. Her Shaede Assassin series is one of my recent favorite so that’s why this week I’m Daring You to Read the first book, SHAEDES OF GRAY.

What’s appealing about this story is the originality of the world despite being in a genre that’s getting more and more common. Her main character Darian is also a great asset to her world since she has everything you want in heroine: spunk, strength and fearlessness. Darian is a Shaede, a being that can become one with darkness and travel in the shadows of the night. At first she thought she was the last one of her kind but as we learn early in the book, there’s a huge community of Shaedes, and also a huge community of paranormal being, which she completely ignore for more than a decade.

Don’t mistake this novel for Fifty Shades of Grey because they have absolutely nothing in common, except similar words in the title. If you get around to reading SHAEDES OF GRAY, I would love to hear your thoughts.

9780451235299_ShaedesofGra_CV.inddIn the shadows of the night, Darian has lived alone for almost a century. Made and abandoned by her former love, Darian is the last of her kind – an immortal Shaede who can slip into darkness as easily as breathing. With no one else to rely on, she has taught herself how to survive, using her unique skills to become a deadly assassin.

When Darian's next mark turns out to be Xander Peck, King of the Shaede Nation, her whole worldview is thrown into question. Darian begins to wonder if she's taken on more than her conscience will allow. But a good assassin never leaves a job unfinished...
