I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
His throne. Her rebellion. Their war.
Qole is the youngest starship captain in living memory on her homeworld of Alaxak and has spent her life hunting a dangerous energy source called Shadow. Alaxans distrust and evade the galaxy’s royalty as a rule, but Qole is now harboring the exiled Prince Nevarian Dracorte, along with some very conflicting feelings about it—and him.
Nev’s feelings are just as complicated, but not towards her. When it comes to Qole, he knows one thing: he’d do anything to stay with her. But when Alaxak is attacked and Nev finds himself framed for murder, he realizes the only way to help Qole and her people is to fight for the throne that should be his. To become the royal she might hate.
As for Qole, she would never have imagined herself as the leader of a rebellion. Despite that, she soon realizes that hiding from her power is no longer an option. It’s time to answer the call, even if it kills her.
Shadow Call by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller is book two in their Kaitan Chronicles and the sequel to their debut novel, Shadow Run.
Continuing where book one left off, the authors bring us back to the Kaitan Heritage and to the main characters, Qole and Nev. Qole, captain of the Kaitan, and Nev, exiled prince of Luvos are now on Alaxak with the rest of Qole’s crew hunting Shadow. However, they are soon pulled into another adventure filled with deception, political intrigue, adventure, and romance.
There are many twists and turns within the plot as the characters try to save their people and stop the villain. I really enjoyed how the authors alternated the POVs from Qole, Nev, and the villain. It really helped to understand each character more and to see each of their motivations. I also enjoyed the detail, the action scenes, and how the plot thickens as the story progresses. It definitely is preparing for the next book as well, and I can’t wait to read more.
Overall, Shadow Call is a fantastic sequel to Shadow Run that does not disappoint and leaves you wanting more. I look forward to reading more by Strickland and Miller. I happily recommend.
