READ Defying Shadows Rising Shadows #3I
will try to make this review as honest as I can but realize that I very much have a biased opinion I cannot say that it is good or not but I throughly njoyed it Ashley s writing has matured since Rising Shadows and has vastly improved since chasing shadows She maintained her ability to paint vivid pictures through her diction and brought the reader as if they were at Serimone and her description of the ruins was well written and descriptive She wrote about specific scenes that brought you there Here writing was less choppy and had a clearer voice and focus than in chasing shadows and it was noticeable the direction that she wanted her characters to go Ashley did a stellar job of not noticeably foreshadowing upcoming portions of the story When the scenes occurred it was if you were walking into a wall well duh In chasing shadows and rising shadows Ashley foreshadowed many of the vents that would happen later in the story and it was noticeable Overall it was a book that I thoroughly Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas
enjoyed readingvery word Ashley had written I found it hard to the book down and sadly disappointed that the story for these characters had to The Magic Rolling Pin
end Injoyed her utilizing her interest in Robin Hood and Maid Marian and how they came about She added a nice origin story I can t get over how much I Indecent... Exposure (Indecent,
enjoyed reading Defying Shadows it is my favorite of the trilogy I laughed and I cried and one day later my heart still cries outI was very lost to start as I have not read the preuels to the book But after a few pages in I was hooked The book hasverything a fan of Young Adult science fiction could hope for Romance plot Twists Mystery Adventure Joyful
mystery adventure joyful sorrowful moments I would be very surprised if the book did not bring out some deep Not Without a Fight
emotions within you The theme of unconditional love and friendship can be found through out and it affected me deeply while reading without being cheesy or too much I am a strong believer that if an author can stir those deepmotions within you shehe deserves high praise And Ashley Townsend most certainly does As you read you will feel Garden Bouquets and Beyond
everything the characters are feelingDamien one of the main characters in this book will be in my mind and heart for a long while I don t know much about his previous history for what I understood it was not all very good but it makes for a great third book The time travel side of it is very cleverly written I personally find only a very few writers can pull off writing on time travel without sounding very tacky or too simplistic Neither the case here The book also has some strong Christian notes They are skilfully incorporated and bring out the imperfect side of our human nature making itasier to relate to the characters I think Sarah is meant to be the main character but I will confess she is the one I related to less Damien takes a much stronger role to me and I absolutely love his character Jade coming close second But I will not say and spoil the fun for others All in all a great read One I could not recommend The Unseen Wonder
enough The only downside of the book is particular to me there were a lot of missing links things I wish I knew but didn t because I have not read the other two I just can t Skipped to thend to see how it all worked out let me just start off by saying that i am in love with this book the story is written fantastically and while maintaining a gripping storyline with tons of plot twists lmao the book also gives importance to various virtues like friendship sacrifice and faith in the almighty the book is narrated by the first person s point of view and the author has included a uotation before the beginning of a This book was sent to me for beta reading and thankyou for Ashley for giving me the chance to #do so I have to be honestI hate Ebook Hahaha I #so I have to be honestI hate Ebook Hahaha I read book and it s indeed making me the worst reading slump Zu schnell
ever But I believe I wouldnd this book for over a day or two if I have the physical one because you know whatTHIS BOOK IS THE FIRST FREAKING EVER FANTASY BO. One choice can define your futureAt first Sarah’s return to twelfth century Serimone is as wonderful as she could have hoped reconnecting with Will and celebrating the union of her two friends but things uickly fall to pieces when she uncovers something that could unsettle the new regime Before she can share this information Sarah is forcibly whisked away by the one man she thought. OK THAT I ACTUALLY CRIEDand that Sleepless (Bird of Stone,
epilogue Gah That was brilliantI dont have anythinglse to say other than I love this book and trully wanted to have the physicall one Like seriously I just finished and miss Will and Sarah and Karen and Damien and Ugh I cant choose my favorite because they are allBrilliant Ashley BRILLIANTPS This is an honest review from me I was chosen to be a beta reader for this book cries with joy by Ashley for an honest review of this installment in her amazing trilogyMIGHT CONTAIN MILD SPOILERSI just completed Defying Shadows and have been having bitter sweet feelings ver since I m so sad that this wonderful series is over and that there won t be any Sarah or Will or Damien in my lifeAs for the review I cannot possibly say much to criticize Ash s work however some plot twists were kinda foreseeable I njoyed them nevertheless The thing I didn t see coming was Damien s fate I remember how in our previous conversation she had told me that he would play a big part in Book 3 and he is and always will be mine as well as her I hope I remember correct favorite character Naturally his development throughout the series is admirable In the nd he became the hero I always wished him to be and ven though his dying made my heart wrench badly I m glad that he found the true path and did bot deter from it His love for Sarah is something I always wish I can have I mean I do ship Sarah and Will but Damien I don t need to say any I just loved his dynamicWill went through major changes as well I knew he d be alive after the ship went down don t know how just do His faith being turned around and his life taking a better course made me feel satisfied After watching him struggle with the concept of God and His love he finally attained peace I do however feel angry at him for leaving Damien to be hanged I know the situation was such and he couldn t possibly have done much but I wanted him to try and save the man who had given up Invisible (The Curse of Avalon
everything for the woman they both lovedSarah was somewhat of a conflicted mess for the major part of the book I felt as though her character would not have sit by idly at Jade s place whenverything was happening and that she would do something That aside she will never cease to amaze me by the strength she holds in herself Her feelings towards the Jones Will Damien Yummy Supper
even Jade seemed so selfless and pure no matter what they were She was never one for pretenses Demetrius coming in the picture was a bit surprising and didn t make much sense to me until thend when verything made sense His involvement with Cadius was something I became wary of However Cadius himself could not outsmart the monster he had created I m glad he saw what he had created and feared because of what he did to his son which in turn resulted in his demise as well as Adrian sThe tone of the novel seemed a bit slower than Chasing Shadows The one thing I njoyed were the different places that the characters visited Be it the present or the past I do admit I would have absolutely loved to see Will adjust to the new life although he did not seemed as surprised by verything that he saw which was sad #BECAUSE THIS WORLD IS SO DIFFERENT FROM THE #this world is so different from the time was born I guess he didn t xpress motions noughI was super scared about the whole Robin Hood Marian thing I mean Jade Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature
evolved so much in thend it was hard not to care for her however snarky she be but I m so glad she found someone who courted her as she deserved after losing veryone lseI wanted interaction between Saran and the ueen since the way the story was portrayed they seemed to understand ach other very well despite meeting only twice that too briefly Due *to the ueen s affections towards Sarah for a second I thought she wanted her *
the ueen s affections towards Sarah for a second I thought she wanted her marry Adrian or something similarThe pilogue was something that made me weep out a little Even though I was glad that Sarah and Will had such a wonderful long life together it felt like a closure of sorts She never got to meet Karen again. She’d never see again Damien Lisandro the friend who betrayed her and the traitor who was supposed to spend his life behind bars Even unsettling is the revelation that the mystery they had solved is far from over as a dead man comes back to life with the intent of corrupting the future In Will's desperate attempts to find Sarah he uncovers the mystery that she left behind putting.
