Product Description

Four sisters, three rules to live by, one big problem.

O'Connell Family Rule #1: Don't let the Fae know you see them.
O'Connell Family Rule #2: Don't talk to the Fae.
O'Connell Family Rule #3: Never, ever follow them.

Most people only believe what they can see. Gifted with the ability to see the deep, dark fae of Shadowland, Catherine Rowan Mary O'Connell would prefer not to. When the fae abduct her friend Maya, Cate breaks the sacred O'Connell Family Rules and sets a trap for the handsome fae who haunts her every step.

Rook, High Court Advisor to the Shadow King, has been following Cate since she was sixteen. When Cate reveals herself as one of the fabled "Seers", Rook is stunned—she is one of the few that can permanently open the gates between their worlds. If he turns her over to the Shadow King, his court will rule the human realm.

Cate knows she has precious little time to find Maya. By midnight, the glamour of Mid-Summer's Eve will fade, leaving her trapped forever in the Shadowland, but Maya's abductor won't give up the woman he's mesmerized easily.

The midnight hour is almost at hand. Cate must choose: her freedom or her destiny.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to a new series! 7 June 2012

I adore stories about the Fae. The legends, lore and myths, the fact that I'm completely transported to a place where imagination completely takes over, or perhaps it's just my Irish heritage. Regardless of the reasoning, these kinds of stories are among my favorites.

This novella is an introduction to the new Shadow Sisters series by Theresa Meyers. It sets the stage for the full-length novel due to come out in Fall 2012. The author has given life to a spectacular world with Fae and humans sharing the earth but in different realms. Humans are unaware of the Fae living among them with the exception of Fae Seers that are extremely rare. Seers don't know why but they learn from a young age to avoid the Fae at all costs and never let them know you can see them. The O'Connell sisters are `seers' of the Fae.

In this novella, we are introduced to Cate as one of the four O'Connell sisters, and Rook as the Prince of the Shadow Court. Theirs is a love against many odds...different worlds to which they belong, their minds at odds with their hearts and their responsibilities at odds with their passion. Shadowlander is a great introduction to the Shadow Sisters series.

So about the story...
The novella gives us the background about an ongoing war between the Shadowland Fae and the Wyldwood Fae. The Shadowland Court will soon appoint a new leader for the war. Rook, as the King's son, is positioned to become the leader, however the ambitious Kallus has plans to usurp Rook. A war prize will prove a boon to the King so he kidnaps Maya, the impulsive friend of Cate, to gain favor with the King.

Cate O'Connell is a Fae Seer as is her four sisters. They've spent their lives learning to deal with the ability from their grandmother. Their mother disappeared when they were very young never to be seen again.

Rook has been infatuated with Cate for a very long time. He often follows her around and watches over her. He has no idea that Cate can see him. Cate isn't spooked by his stalker-like behavior, as he's never aggressive. She actually feels protected and at ease with him watching over her. And more than a little intrigued with him also.

When Cate watches her best friend Maya being led to her doom by a Fae, she hatches a hasty plan to get her back. She will let Rook know her ability, use his infatuation with her to get him to invite her to the Fae realm and save her friend. A very flawed plan from the start but there it is. She didn't have time for anything more elaborate as her ability to get Maya back to the human realm without the aid of a Fae would cease in 12 hours, the end of Mid-summer's Eve.

Another important aspect to the overall plot of the series is an intended invasion of Upland (a term the Fae use to refer to the human realm). The Fae view Upland as theirs since they owned it first and humans are destroying it. They don't want to do away with humans, only the control to make humans cease destruction. The invasion would prove to be much easier if a Seer with the ability to permanently open the gates between worlds were possessed. A willing Seer that is, would give the Fae a clear advantage over the human realm.

The relationship between Rook and Cate sizzles from the beginning of the novella. Rook dare not let himself touch Cate, as he's afraid he might not be able to stop himself from taking her. He satisfies himself with light touches of Cate's hair and getting as close as he can without touching. She knows of course what he's doing and can feel his closeness, however she can never let on. For sixteen years, this desire burns. So you can imagine the passion that erupts when he realizes she can feel him. Meyers is very skillful at ensuring we feel what they feel. The passion blazes off the pages and to tell the truth, I was quite mesmerized.

But as their passion continues to ignite, there is still intent on both sides to use each other, albeit reluctantly, for the good of others. Cate uses Rook's infatuation with her to obtain his promise of help in finding Maya and seeing her safely returned home, and Rook knows that possessing a Seer can give his Court a clear advantage over others in coming wars.

One thing I wish the author addressed was the fact that Cate put her sisters in danger by revealing her seer abilities to Rook and the Shadowlanders. The Fae know the ability is hereditary and therefore by outing herself, she put her family in danger. I don't know how this could have been dealt with but maybe in the next novel, we'll see a purpose.

One thing that I found very cute and giggle-worthy is how the author set it up so that the more mischievous Fae are the cause of accidents on the human realm and they spend their time wreaking havoc whenever possible for mere amusement. Not cool but kinda funny in a macabre way.

Bottom Line

In my opinion, this novella was a great introduction to the Shadow Sisters series. If you like adult stories about Fae of legends, you will enjoy this one. If Meyers can achieve what she has in a novella, I sure am eager to see what she can do with a full-length novel. I hear that Book #2 is due out this fall 2012 and I can't wait!! I'm really looking forward to reading more in this series!

Happy Reading!!

Good read, can't wait to read more in this series!

It's a story about one of 3 sisters who can "see" the fey that inhabit the Earth, because apparently they are not visible to all but a handful of "Seers". She enters into the Shadowlands to rescue her friend who has an unfortunate blind date with a fey who kidnaps her as a conquest for Midsummer's Eve.

Won't ruin the end of it, but well done (similar to the grand quest theme in the Chosen books)!

Cate's family has had one standing command amongst them since their mother disappeared. Pretend that you don't know the Fae are there. But that's impossible to do when Cate's best friend is kidnapped and taken into the Shadowland. With a miniscule amount of time before the doorway to the Fae world closes trapping them there forever, Cate sets a plan in motion to rescue Maya. But it means revealing her ability to see them to the alluring Fae who has dogged her steps for years.

Rook's position in his world is high but shadowed by the King's wavering favor. Bringing Cate, a "Seer", to the Shadow King will bring that favor to him. But to Rook, Cate is more than just a pawn to be played at the whims of the Shadow King and his desire for her could prove to be their undoing.

I'm embarrassed admitting this but I wrote something similar to this when I was in high school. I think that's why on the one hand I liked it and on the other it felt sort of juvenile. I loved Meyer's writing style, was easily excited by the world-building, and enjoyed the basic set-up for the series but really disliked the characters. They felt a little too... ugh, I feel like a jerk saying this... flawless. The hot love scenes didn't make up for the lack of personality and chemistry I was looking for in Rook and Cate.

As a novella I felt like very little happened and yet a lot did. Too much talking about things and not enough organic flow of the info. It wasn't awful or unenjoyable it just hit a few of my reader-no-likey buttons. I didn't love it, couldn't quite say I liked it with so many things not working for me but I plan to check out the next one anyway. If you like Fae fantasy most of this takes place in their world and there's plenty of steaminess between Cate and Rook, it's worth a read if you didn't write stuff like this for fun when you were fifteen. lol It just kept taking me back to my awful teenaged ideas--need I say misunderstandings--of what romance and love were.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious Novella 3 November 2011
By Andrea T - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
In One Word ~ Steamy

Shadowlander is a delicious little novella packed full of action, intrigue and romance. Author Theresa Meyer wasted no time delving into the heart of the story of Cate and Rook.

The fae world created in Shadowlander is dark, edgy and unique. Meyer managed to make her own mark on a world that is heavily represented in paranormal writing. The setting of this fae world was by turns vibrant and ominous, with it's own set of rules and danger.

The story is told in alternating viewpoints of Cate and Rook. Sometimes, I find that technique a little disorienting, but Meyers did such a great job of switching narrator, it felt seamless. I think the alternation actually made me like the story more because I got a sense of the motivations and thoughts of both characters, keeping me on board with both of them.

I'll admit, though I am a huge fan of Young Adult books, sometimes I like something a little more, ahem, grown up. Shadowlander is most definitely a book for adults. Talk about a steamy, sexy story. Cate and Rook had instant chemistry that kept me reading anxiously, wondering if, and when, they would combust!

My only complaint about Shadowlander is that it was too short. I would have loved for this story to go on and on, with a little more background thrown in, also. But, I think that actually speaks well for the author. Always leave the reader wanting more, right?

Shadowlander is a sexy, romantic morsel of escapism that makes for a great, quick read. I can't wait for another slice.

Favorite Quote~

"For an instant, time stretched and slowed as he waited for her response. Even the glittering trails ofthe smallest fae, who looked like bits of dandelion fluff on the wind, appeared to hang suspended in midair. Once she slipped her hand into his, there'd be no going back."

5.0 out of 5 stars Seductive Addiction 13 November 2011
By Valia Lind - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given the opportunity to review this book and I have to say I was not disappointed. The storyline is fast paced and gripping. The characters are well developed and fun. I was never one for novellas before but now I can see that it can be done properly. This is definitely a great read for anyone who loves magic, conflict, and love that overcomes the odds.
I really enjoyed Cate as the main character. She takes matters into her own hands to save a friend and she doesn't sit by the sidelines. She is a kick butt kind of a female character and she doesn't waste time to go after what she wants. Rook is a unique spice added to the story. He is handsome, sexy, and so in love with Cate that your heart stops beating before it takes off a mile a second. The electrical chemistry between the two is so powerful it leaves you on the edge of your seat. Theresa creates a relationship between the two that takes your breath away.
The world of Shadowlander is magical and breathtaking. It is uniquely crafted and well written. I have to say that I would've loved a bit more of the story to develop but that's only because I'm greedy for more Rook and Cate.
This story was a seductive addiction. I had to know what happened next. My complaint about this book is that it wasn't long enough. I would've loved more of Rook and Cate. I can't wait to see where Theresa going to take the other characters.
Thank you, Entangled Publishing for introducing me to such a wonderful story.
