Book Review #160 - Winter's Shadow (Winter Saga #1) by M.J. Hearle

Blake Duchamp...

He's all that Winter Adams can think of. Ever since their fateful meeting at Pilgrim's Lament. Ever since he looked at her with those emerald eyes. Ever since he saved her life.

But Blake isn't all that he seems. There is a strangeness about him, something dark and otherworldly. Something dangerous. In his attic is a secret he would kill to defend, but Winter seems to have a special ability to make him forget his duty. And he is her only protection against the gathering darkness.

The only problem is, to protect Winter, Blake must risk exposing her to an even greater danger. Himself.

My Rating: 5/5

I wasn't exactly sure what this book was about prior to reading as the synopsis was vague. This turned out to be a positive thing.

Winter was an interesting protagonist although even at the end of the book I never really felt like I knew alot about her.

Blake wasn't that unique. He reminded me of any male protagonist in young adult books.

The paranormal aspect was entirely unique as I have never read anything even remotely similar to it.

The ending was the best part of the book, it was not how I thought it would end. It had a huge cliffhanger.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series Winter's Light which I will try and read sometime later this week.
