Mandy McKinney lives the charmed life. She is beautiful, athletic, popular, dating the hottest jock in school, and certainly doesn't have any time for her loser twin sister. But Mandy also has a secret. When the truth is unveiled, her world is twisted upside down, and her very life is at stake.
Mandy's twin sister, Brianna, has never had any success in the dating department. When Brianna finally meets the guy of her dreams, it turns out that he has secrets of his own. Dangerous secrets. Just her luck.
The twins are about to be swept away into a world of beauty and power beyond their wildest imaginations where nothing is what is seems, danger is lurking in the shadows, and their only chance of survival is finding themselves, and each other, once again.
In Shadows of Magic is only $2.99 and is available as an ebook on itunes, Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, and many other online retailers.
For me, In Shadows of Magic was a quick and easy read full of action and magic.
The story revolves around Mandy, the most popular girl in high school who is loved and adored by everyone. Her twin sister Brianna? The total opposite. The major difference between the girls though, is the fact that Mandy is a witch, but has trouble figuring out whether or not people genuinely love her or not. When a former friend of the girls learn of their family secret, the twins find themselves on different ends of the spectrum but are forced to work together to stay alive.
What I loved most about this story was how fast-paced it was, and a how the story was easy to follow. I really loved the relationship between the sisters: Mandy and Brianna, as well as their relationships with the guys and their friends. I love how Mandy's character grows into a better and more independent person, while Brianna learns how much her sister really cares about her.
It was an enjoyable read, and I totally recommend it to anyone who loves urban fantasy.
Review: 3 out of 5 stars
