Description

They still haven't found the body of the first and only boy who broke Alessandra's heart - and they never will. Since then, all of her relationships have been purely physical. And now at eighteen years old, Alessandra is ready for more. The plan is simple:

1. Make the king fall in love with her.
2. Get him to marry her.
3. Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.

It's no small task, but Alessandra wants a kingdom and is going to do everything within her power to get it. She knows the freshly crowned Shadow King will be her toughest target yet. Shrouded in a mysterious power, no one is allowed to touch him.

But, as forces combine to try and keep Alessandra from earning the king's heart, she wonders if perhaps she's already lost her own.

Review quote

"The Shadows Between Us is my favorite kind of fantasy: dark, mesmerizing, and completely addictive. With a gripping mystery and layered characters, it's a glittering tale of love and the pursuit of power. Put simply: it's the Slytherin romance we've all been waiting for." --Kerri Maniscalco, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Stalking Jack the Ripper

"Tricia Levenseller's latest, The Shadows Between Us, is a decadent and wickedly addictive fantasy, full of schemes and court intrigue, and delightful descriptions of food, which I am always a fan of." --Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

"A wickedly fun romp with corsets and jeweled daggers, Levenseller drops us into a competitive royal court, led there by Alessandra, an unapologetically ruthless and self-confident courtier who aims to overthrow the Shadow King and become queen. The king's mysterious abilities and dark secrets complicate her passion to rule, all building to a sizzling, unbidden romance. The Shadows Between Us will heat up the page--and your heart." --Emily R. King, author of The Hundredth Queen series

" A viciously satisfying romance featuring two well-matched opponents." --Booklist

Praise for Tricia Levenseller:
"One of my favourite YA books ever. The action! The world-building! The voice! This book kicks so much ass." -- Cale Dietrich, author of The Love Interest, on Warrior of the Wild

"Rasmira's quest is thrilling, her emotional journey compelling; this adventure sings." --Booklist on Warrior of the Wild

"This high-octane novel is filled with mythical creatures and showcases a heroine who wants to be a warrior, a woman, and a leader." --School Library Journal, on Warrior of the Wild

"The real gratification lies in Rasmira's transformation from broken, betrayed, girl to resourceful, confident victor. Her final clash with the god is heart pounding, and her triumph in front of her village and father is satisfyingly righteous." -- The Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books, on Warrior of the Wild

"Levenseller has created a formidable female character who can take care of herself as she makes some hard decisions." --School Library Journal on Daughter of a Pirate King

"[Levenseller's] words will pull you in, and there's no escaping them." --Charlie N. Holmberg, author of The Paper Magician Series, on Daughter of the Siren Queen

"With a cunning plot, robust writing, and complicated characters, any reader will enjoy being manipulated in Levenseller's capable hands." --Anna Banks, author of the New York Times Bestseller Of Triton, on Daughter of the Pirate King
