Book Review: The Shadow Prince (Mortal Enchantment #0.5) By Stacey O'Neale

The Shadow Prince - Stacey O'Neale


This was an awesome opening to a series! I was intrigued from the first chapter. It's an interesting world Mrs. O'Neale has built and I can't wait to see what's in store for everyone! I can already feel a plot twist sneaking up on me C:


Even though the cover should have warned me and I didn't bother to read the synopsis it took me reading the first 10 pages on my iPad to realize the character telling the story was actually a guy. I had to put down my iPad and actually think through all that had taken place for it to make more sense.


Other then the initial mix up, I started to like Rowan. When his punishment took place I found myself cringing with pain right along with him. Even though I didn't agree with his actions by the end of this prequel I'm still rooting for him.


We barely get to see Kalin. Even though Rowan is enamored with her from the first moment he lays his eyes on her, we only meet her through his eyes. She looks sad most of the time when she's alone, she likes her privacy and she puts on an act for her friends. That's the sum of what Rowan (consequently the reader) knows about her as a person.


I can't wait to pick up the first book in this series. It seems promising!
