Julieanne Lynch is a master at the craft of storytelling, weaving the concept of the supernatural and the human world so intricately that the reader truly believes in the possibility of the world she’s created.
Imprisoned within the walls of her new makers Gothic Estate, 18-year-old Giselle Bergman spends her nights mourning the loss of her short lived human life. After the betrayal of her boyfriend of four years, Giselle seeks revenge; but as most of us know, revenge is bitter.

Seeking refuge, she falls into the arms of her best friend Alex, only to learn that most of what she’s known about him is fallible. Giselle’s choices force her into a world filled with horrors she only believed existed on screen.

As the truth of myths and legends is revealed to her, Giselle is forced to place her trust in strangers. Strangers who have their own agendas and who see her as merely a pawn in their game. Just when it seems her situation couldn’t possibly get any worse, Giselle’s world is ripped from under her and new dangers arise.

Lynch’s take on the vampire world is unique and unlike any other I’ve read. In the Shadows is filled with passion, lust, and an array of alluring vampires (whom you both love and hate) with just the right amount of edge. The end will leave you frustrated but only because you’re eager to know what comes next.

If your poison of choice is YA paranormal fiction than In the Shadows is the book for you. It will not disappoint!
