Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.
But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.
With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.
With lush writing and a star–crossed romance, Reign of Shadows is Sophie Jordan at her best.
Okay I love remakes of children's stories but this one takes the cake on a retelling of a favorite story of mine growing up.
In Reign Of Shadows we get to meet Luna a Princess who is hiding because her family was murdered. 17 years later she is still in hiding but wants more out of life. Even though she needs people to think she is dead she is tired of being alone in the woods by herself.
Then one day she sees a young guy in the woods and she is interested in who he is and where he comes from. Soon she finds out what his name is when there is another disaster to the tower. She and Fowler escape from the tower but when Luna makes it outside into the dark world she is not sure she should have left the tower. As Luna struggles with her fears she gets closer to Fowler but will secrets and lies keep them from becoming more than friends.....
Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.
A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.
In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.
