"If I could stop worrying about you, I would've. Just like if I could stop thinking about you, or try to find ways to spend time with you, or catch a word with you, or steal a smile that - "
"Are you ready to lose even more for the sake of your justice?"
"You are everything I could ever want, nothing more or less."
"I love you, all of you. I want you, all of you. Not just the parts you think are lovely...because I think all of you is the most beautiful person - inside and out - that I've ever laid eyes on."
I love how Eira’s character has overcome so much, but still has a lot of growing to do as she deals with her past traumas and the challenges before her. She is powerful but also a bit reckless. I really liked how the recklessness brought her down a notch on the perfect scale, but also allowed her to gain information and opportunities that no one else could.
A HUNT OF SHADOWS is a thrilling fantasy filled with incredible magic, secret societies, intrigue, danger, adventure, and romance. It will have you turning pages all night as you yearn to discover that next secret and die for the next romantic interaction.
Five stars (duh!) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
And the biggest hit is knowing that the book with the answers to all our questions doesn’t release until early 2023. Now that’s evil.

The book is an absolute adventure of emotions. The story gave us further insights into Era's gifts, the truth hidden behind the walls and the deception. There were new characters introduced on the road of adventure and old flames ignited and friendship build.
It was a show to see Era's character gain confidence and unfold to her best. I loved the building friendships between girls and maybe Cullen too.
It was a delight reading this book and I enjoyed it, especially when the end promises so much more.
