I read this book in one day. It was very unique, different and fresh. The use of a magical cord to connect the main character, Sierra, to her soul body was really cool. I really liked the characters, especially Tess. I wanted more of her! Maven was a great bad dude and Amber really fit in well. Sierra is so cool, she is so awesome and strong willed. I loved her! The love story between Sierra and Valeck really worked and having them separated between the real world and the void makes for great te ...more

A boy named Valeck saves her life, and it’s the beginning of an adventure that will change Sierra’s life forever.

Valeck is an interesting love interest. I lik

Summer's Shadow was an excellent novel. Full of action and adventure. Twists and turns and a nice little love story. Sierra Winters is a strong main character with flaws, which I liked. She has issues to get through that will continue being dealt with in later books it appears. Sierra's love interest, Valeck, is a great character with his own issues. Maven is a perfect, devious, dark evil character with his own intriguing back story. Sierra's friends play a large role as well and the three of th ...more

Summer’s Shadow is the first book in Craig MacLachlan’s Sierra Winters and the Void series. A detailed read pumped with adrenaline, Summer’s Shadow is a fusion of paranormal romance and fantasy. Sucked into a fast moving plot that is exceptionally written and almost flawless in its execution, Summer’s Shadow is a profoundly deep story that is filled with courage, angst, and breathtaking images of magic and beauty. The characters rock in a tale that is both classy and classic. A must read for tho ...more
