Grey (Covenant of Shadows, Book 1)
By Kade Cook
Review: 4.6 out of 5 stars
Grey is Canadian author Kade Cook’s first novel. It is the first book in the The Covenant of Shadows young adult fantasy series.
Gabrian Shadwell is young professional psychologist who has every aspect of her life under control…. until one day, she doesn’t. In a manner of hours, her whole world is turned upside down as she discovers that her family and close friends have been guarding important secrets from her. She learns of the existence of a whole new world, full of magic and wonder. She develops powers beyond her imagination. Powers that she cannot seem to control. As she comes to grips with all of this, she realizes that there are people out for her head. She must figure out who her allies and enemies are… before it’s too late.
I enjoyed the book so much that I read it twice. The characters are well developed, the writing is superb, the pace is engaging, and the plot keeps you always on edge, wondering what will happen next. I was delightfully surprised by this novel and I think that anyone who takes the time to read it will too.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the young adult fantasy genre. To give you an idea, it reminded me a lot of the Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare except that I thought it was better.
