Review of Shadow Days by Andrea Cremer

Shadow Days: A Nightshade Novella (Nightshade Prequel)
I think a novella must be the toughest kind of book to write. How do you fit in more info than you would in a short story, but less than you would in a novel? Shadow Days definitely fell into the category of novella. At times it read a bit like promotional material, but otherwise I enjoyed delving back into the world Andrea Cremer created.

When I finished Nightshade, it took some deliberation, but I decided that I’m Team Shay. As Shadow Days is centered around Shay, it was great to learn more about him and how he came to be a part of Calla’s life. All of the descriptive passages did a nice job of showcasing Cremer’s descriptive writing style.

Shadow Days was like an appetizer that is satisfying, but is so delicious that it leaves you wanting more. I eagerly await the coming installments in Cremer’s series!

  1. Oh, I haven't read Nightshade yet, but I can't wait to and this novella sounds like an excellent read. Could it be seen as a stand-alone too?
