In the second book of the Shade trilogy from Jeri Smith-Ready, Aura is torn between the two boys who hold her heart--and determined to unravel the secrets of the Shift. Aura's life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can't deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she's not sure that she wants to. Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one at her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past--the mystery of the Shift. She's not the only one seeking answers, though, and danger grows as she discovers new truths. Who can Aura trust with her secrets? And to whom will she give her heart?

"This sequel to SHADE (2010) will not disappoint fans of paranormal romance with its blend of action, starcrossed lovers, and entanglements, both dangerous and sexy." --"Booklist", May 2011
Gr 9 Up-In Jeri Smith-Ready's exciting sequel (2011) to Shade (2010, both Simon Pulse), Logan has regained his benign ghostly status, but is still considered at-risk enough to draw attention from the Department of Metaphysical Purity (DMP). Additionally, by refusing to move on, he is proving just as volatile to Aura's well-being as he was as a Shade. As the DMP's interest in Aura and Zachery takes a dangerous turn, Logan devises a controversial plan to make a mark on the music world. Further insight is provided concerning Aura and Zachery's involvement in the Shift, their profound effect on ghosts, and what really happened at Newgrange nearly 18 years earlier. Some background is provided, but familiarity with the previous book is strongly recommended. Startling plot twists and a cliffhanger ending leave listeners anxious for the final installment. Although the story's premise is intriguing and original, the complex love triangle of Aura, Logan, and Zachery overshadows the plot in a way that is more aggravating than amorous. And the brief addition of Dylan as a possible third lust interest seems over-the-top. Even diehard fans of paranormal romance may quickly tire of these relationship theatrics. Some mature content may make this title inappropriate for younger teens. Khristine Hvam's superb narration expertly conveys Aura's angst and confusion. She is consistent in voicing male and female characters, and convincingly manages Zachery's Scottish accent.-Alissa LeMerise, Oxford Public Library, MI (c) Copyright 2011.
