Tricia Levenseller, author of Daughter of the Pirate King, is back with an epic YA tale of ambition and love in The Shadows Between Us…
“They’ve never found the body of the first and only boy who broke my heart. And they never will.”
Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:
1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.
No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.
But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?
“Tricia Levenseller’s latest, The Shadows Between Us, is a decadent and wickedly addictive fantasy, full of schemes and court intrigue, and delightful descriptions of food, which I am always a fan of.” —Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

Enchanting, Unique, and Romantic
I absolutely loved the main female character in this book. She was unique, ambitious, empowering and confident. I wasn’t sure I’d like a “Slytherin” romance but I came away from the book loving with Kallias and Alessandra’s story. The plot was a little slow and the main characters are meant to be villainous at times, but I still couldn’t stop reading. Can’t wait for the next installment! This book is a must read for any Throne or Glass fans and enemies to lovers readers-and it has a great plot twist at the end.
Utterly blown away! This book was the perfect fantasy romance. I loved the independent characters and how weakly human the author made them. They were tempted and gave into things like jealousy and fear that gave a realism to the story. I also loved the romance. I knew going into the book that the was the main plot was romance, however the author beautifully contrasted that with a fierce protagonist and a murder plot full of action. The ending seemed a bit rushed, I wish the two lovers had had more time together, but overall a good read. I would definitely recommended!
This was amazing
This was amazing! I loved this book. Great characters! Alessandra is such a sassy, take no crap kind of girl! I loved the plot, the romance, and the mystery. I couldn’t put it down. Such vivid details. This is my favorite by this author, although I loved her other books as well!
