Early Unraveling of The Sharpest Blade by Sandy Williams

The Sharpest Blade by Sandy Williams
Title: The Sharpest Blade
Series: Shadow Reader Book Three
Publication Date: December 31, 2013

Torn between two worlds.
Torn between two lives.

McKenzie Lewis’s ability to read the shadows has put her—and …those she loves—in harm’s way again and again. The violence must end, but will the cost of peace be more devastating than anyone ever imagined?

After ten years of turmoil, the life McKenzie has always longed for may finally be within her grasp. No one is swinging a sword at her head or asking her to track the fae, and she finally has a regular—albeit boring—job. But when a ruthless enemy strikes against her friends, McKenzie abandons her attempt at normalcy and rushes back to the Realm.

With the fae she loves and the fae she’s tied to pulling her in different directions, McKenzie must uncover the truth behind the war and accept the painful sacrifices that must be made to end it. Armed with dangerous secrets and with powerful allies at her side, her actions will either rip the Realm apart—or save it.

My Thoughts

A copy was provided through NetGalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review

If you have been keeping up with this trilogy you are probably salivating at the chance to finally find out what the hell is going to happen between McKenzie, Kyol and Aren. The constant back and forth of McKenzie's decisions was driving me insane, and the infuriating and frustrating part is that I understood her so I couldn't really blame her all that much for it. Of course this didn't mean that I had to like, cause I didn't. I wanted her to pick already and just stick to it cause her waffling back and forth was just unnecessarily hurting all three of them. But then that ending in The Shattered Dark happened and I about died! Just when it seemed like some kind of resolution was happening THAT happened. Boy was I pissed. I didn't know what direction this last book was going to take but I'm happy to report that the ending and the whole book was just right.

This book started with a bang and didn't stop till the very end. This is one of the many things that I love about this series. Most of you know I hate love triangles so a book that manages to keep me glued to the pages regardless of it is incredibly rare, and this one never disappointed. I was both sad but proud of McKenzie through most of this book, she really shined in this one. She finally made some tough decisions, and once she finally made them she stuck to them and never looked back. Not only did she not look back but she followed through with such determination, made me really root for her and their cause.

Speaking of their cause this book like it's previous predecessors had so much convoluted politics going that it was a bit rough at times to keep up with but mostly cause I didn't remember all the details from the past books. It all gets cleared up eventually but I'd recommend doing a quick re-read of both books just to be on the safe side. I can't really go into too much detail about the plot since I don't want to spoil anything for both new and old readers of this great trilogy. Suffice it to say it had action, intrigue, back stabbing, death, and romance.Do not read that spoiler if you haven't read this book (view spoiler)

If you are an old reader you won't be disappointed at the way things ended, and if you haven't read it The Shadow Reader Trilogy then what are you waiting for!
