Review: Casting Shadows by Amanda DeWees



Buy on Amazon

Published November 2012

Book Description:

Ash Grove High School senior Joy Sumner and her model boyfriend, Tanner Lindsey, have defeated Melisande, the supernatural seductress who almost ended his life. Now, however, they learn that their unborn child may have been corrupted by Melisande’s evil. Suddenly the council that patrols supernatural activity at Ash Grove High is taking much too close an interest in Joy’s baby, and Raven, Melisande’s former assistant, may have a hidden agenda behind his friendly overtures. And living as an engaged couple with Joy’s father is challenging in its own way, even before Dr. Sumner begins to immerse himself in mysterious research. As Joy’s due date approaches, everyone from nosy journalists to supernatural doppelgangers wants to get close to her, and she and Tanner must decide how to keep her and their unborn daughter safe.

Meanwhile, a disastrous lapse of judgment drives a wedge between Joy’s best friends, Maddie and William. William turns for solace to the growing success of his band, Aerosol Cheese, and the prospect of a new romance in a highly unexpected place. But as his star is on the rise, Maddie glimpses something diabolical in the works. Somebody or something is targeting musicians, and William may be the next in the crosshairs. Now that he’s put Maddie out of his life, can she warn him in time that he is in danger?


My Review:

 
I was given this copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I must say its been awhile since I have been so hooked on a series. I just can't wait for book 3, I am also wrapped up in 2 other series as well.
But Casting Shadows was awesome. I read it in a little less than 2 days.
Love the new developments in this series but I was still left with a cliffhanger!!!
Maddie was awesome in book 2, she is really learning and growing. Joy was just a strong as in the first book. and I was happy to see Tanner become more confidant.
This time we had a little more going on-including a demon and shapeshifter.
I will say as much as I loved reading more about my favorite characters, I was not happy we saw so much of Shelia. I just didn't like her from the beginning, although she is important in this book.

5 stars all the way!  and I don't give 5 stars easily.
