Today, I'm happy to host the new book that promise to inmerse us into a thrilling story with a touch of magic and friendship.

Fading into the Shadows by Kelly Hashway 
Genre: Young Adult 
Release Day: January 16, 2017
When sixteen-year-old Ella Andrews’s best friend, Avery, goes missing, she’ll do anything to get him back—starting with punching the no-brain cop who couldn’t care less about the disappearance. Ella’s convinced Avery’s been kidnapped, and she tries everything to find him—even following a strange shadow to another world where the constellations are real-life figures in the sky. But three star groups have fallen and are destroying the world. The fallen constellations are not the only enemy. Melanie, the princess of Stellaris, is forcing Ella, Avery, and an army of other kids kidnapped from their world to fight the rogue constellations, even as the land is draining away their life. The longer they stay, the more they fade into substanceless shadows—a fate worse than death. Can Ella save Stellaris before there’s nothing left of her and Avery?


My Thoughts

I love new, refeshing reads, I mean, there are so many similar stories out there that makes me wonder where have gone people imagination? Well, maybe this book is the answer to all my pleas for a refreshig read. So, after a long time of books looking like one another, I'm so beyond happy to read one so complitely new and absolutely awesome. Fading into the Shadows is a fast-paced read with plot twists, mystery romance and a well building world that keep me interested until the very end.

To resume what this book is about, I'll say that there are two teens that have to fight some fallen constellations into the world of Sollaris (yeah! stars can walk among the people in this world) before they become part of it and disappear forever from Earth. 

This book has a little bit of everything; it's kind of creepy and spooky with the whole "alluring children into the shadows" thing, but it also has a heart-warming romance (though even when I'm not particular fond of love triangles, I kind of like how romance was aproached in here). What I like the most of this book was the action; I enjoyed so much how Ella and Every became part of the war and how they handle it all. The action is present until the end and it was so envolving that I felt I was actually fighting in Sollaris.

Speaking of it, I enjoy how this world was building. I've said plenty of times that I love Greek Mythology, I've read a lot of it so, but I enjoy how this book is a different aproach from the gods and all the usual things that are taken as inspiration. This read was like read the early Percy Jackson's books with lot more of mystery, so I really like it so much.

I absolutely recommend this book; It has everything I like in a book so you should give it a try.
