#111: A Shadow Of Light - Bella Forrest

Since the implosion at The Oasis and Derek's stay at Hawk Headquarters, The Shade has fallen into a state of utter chaos. To make matters worse, the citizens of Derek's kingdom have become suspicious of his loyalties and accuse him of siding with the enemy... At a time when Derek desperately needs full cooperation from his subjects, they wish to put their own King on trial.

Meanwhile, Sofia is being held hostage by the hunters. They are determined to rid her of her infatuation with the vampire. She submits to the strict routine and training they impose on her, but the only fuel that keeps her going is the thought of reuniting with Derek - something Reuben is fighting with every fiber of his being to ensure will never happen.

...Until one day, out of the blue, Reuben appears to have a change of heart and comes to Sofia with a proposal; a solution that she never dreamed possible. A solution that would fulfil her heart's deepest desires and secure her and Derek's future together, forever.

But can she really trust this man who is so renowned for his hatred of vampires? Does she even have a choice?

My review for book 1, A Shade of Vampire
My review for book 2, A Shade of Blood
My review for book 3, A Castle of Sand


REVIEW:
Continuing where A Castle of Sand left off, thankfully, you continue on with Derek and Sofia. That cliff we were hanging on, we drop off of. You can't help but wonder where the story is going and if it will all come together again. It does though.
There are a few pleasant and not-so-pleasant surprises along the way. You lose track of who's dying or not. So many questions are raised. They get answers though. 
I feel the story had something going on at the end of it, but I wasn't balancing precariously from the edge. Loved there wasn't a cliffhanger in this one. It still kept my interest though too. It was just nice not to have an abrupt ending.
I can't wait to read A Blaze of Sun! The name alone leads your mind to dangerous places, imagining the worst, especially sun and vampires. 
What an exciting series!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
