Hunger for nourishment. Hunger for touch.Hunger to belong. Half-human and half-faery, Ani is driven by her hungers.
Those same appetites also attract powerful enemies and uncertain allies, including Devlin. He was created as an assassin and is brother to the faeries' coolly logical High Queen and to her chaotic twin, the embodiment of War. Devlin wants to keep Ani safe from his sisters, knowing that if he fails, he will be the instrument of Ani's death.
Ani isn't one to be guarded while others fight battles for her, though. She has the courage to protect herself and the ability to alter Devlin's plans—and his life. The two are drawn together, each with reason to fear the other and to fear for one another. But as they grow closer, a larger threat imperils the whole of Faerie. Will saving the faery realm mean losing each other?
Alluring romance, heart-stopping danger, and sinister intrigue combine in the penultimate volume of Melissa Marr's New York Times bestselling Wicked Lovely series.
Radiant Shadows starts right after where Fragile Eternity ended. I found this book to be amazing. Ani was a really interesting character and I like learning more about her, then the vague mention in the previous books. Devlin was also deeper then he seemed and I loved him. The plot was fast moving and very interesting. I am intrigued in what the other books will be like in the series, because of something that happened at the very end of this book. Marr is a fantastic writer and I can't wait for more books from her. I would highly recommend reading this series, if you enjoy Holly Black's books.
