TTP May Book Pick – The Shadows Between Us

The Shadows Between Us

Courtesy of Goodreads,

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?

Our Thoughts on the Book

NameOne word to describe your opinion.How was the book for you?Which character did you like the most?At what point did you start getting more interested?Rating
Kalpika RoutElegantI have love-hate relationship with the book. Yeah, but in the end I it was a nice read. There are several topics covered in the plot which I absolutely fell for. For instance about women’s sexual liberation. At the same time I expected if it could have dwelt into the psychology of our morally grey protagonists in a wider way. The writing is kinda unsettled but that doesn’t affects one’s reading experience. The trope is enemies to lovers. ‘I came to kill you but fell in love with you’. It is cliche, and cliche is love xDOne of the characters, whom I favor the most in the book was Leandros. Though, I kinda predicted the fate and eventually separated myself emotionally, so that I don’t feel bad in the end. In the end when the revelation takes place, I felt bad. The way he looks at Alessandra, cares for her was so deary. He doesn’t deserve such a bad ending. He’s such a sweetie :'((The starting was very dreamy yet morbid. And the first line of the book. “They’ve never found the body of the first and only boy who broke my heart. And they never will.” It is enough to drag a reader to finish this book. However, I started getting more interested when the sudden misfortunes started taking place in the shadow kingdom with no one to address them properly.3/5

Coming to the storyline, there isn’t much bout the same. The plot is very basic and plain. However, the way McEwan has implemented the idea is indeed spectacular. The narration part is the one that intrigues the readers the most. 2 minutes into the premise and the first thought which will strike you is “how this entire thing is going to take place”. Basically the lady was in her third trimester of gestation period and fetus boy can hear everything going on around him. This builds one more fascinating theory, can a fetus able to listen to stuff, and maybe after the intense labor they forget everything. The Nutshell
