Shade is a awesome action packed book that will appeal to all young adults, although the main character is a male there are plenty of strong supporting female characters that will have the girls saying, " yah, see, told ya so". Shade is classified as a young adult paranormal book but you can totally loose yourself in this town, as being real and their lives happening in this odd ball way. Poor Clendon has believed most of his life that he is just a messed up kid that for some reason other people are afraid of, so he is just more comfortable by himself off in the woods or hiding in the shadows. His best friend Ollie, has his own issues, his mom is messed up and his dad left when he was just a kid, and no one knows where.
But everything changes in one night. In one night, Ollie finally talks Clen into going to party in the Raveyard, in one night the Myrmidon try to kidnap Clen only to have Niko swoop in and nab Clen at the last moment and take him to Wyn for training and a explanation of what he is. But the Myrmidon attack again before Clen's training is finished but he is forced back to Ellis to protect his family and friends not to mention find so answers to some hard questions for everyone involved to hear.
Like I said this really is a awesome book, great for everyone. The characters work great with each other and it couldn't flow much better, I truly can not wait for the next book to come out I really hope I am allow to review it too. This is a book you will want to stay up past your bedtime reading until you finish it, you will just have to find out what happens to everyone page after page until the book is done and than you will be like me - when is the next one coming out? We need it NOW!!!

It lives in the cramped spaces between shadows in the rear right side of my brain, just behind my ear. It wanders relentlessly, scratching along the pink, fleshy walls of my mind with its unkempt fingernails, shouting obscenities at other thoughts as they travel across lobes and cortexes. It vomits poison and corrupts my mind with whispers of death. It reminds me how his blood felt running down the back of my hands. How my knuckles tore as they raked across his cheekbones. How his tooth cracked loose from his gums and the muffled gargle as he choked on it. It laughs and calls me a coward for running away.
