In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.

Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.

As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves...even if that means betraying her own heart.(Goodreads)

In this stunning conclusion to the Shade trilogy, readers are taken on a emotional journey that they have come to expect through this engaging and heart rendering storyline. Jeri Smith-Ready is hands down a master of her craft with her writing and creativity that seems to strengthen as her work progresses.

SHINE starts off with a bang and an unforeseen event that brings more questions than answers. As the story unfolds Aura "SHINES" as a character in her bravery and determination to do whatever it takes to keep her  loved ones safe. Along the way, her relationship with Zachary sparks to higher levels so that even if you are Team Logan you may find yourself switching sides. At the conclusion I was left  emotionally gratified and saddened to say goodbye to these wonderful  cast of characters and FYI ... Have a tissue ready!
