Racquel is unique. The bloodlines of four of the most powerful beings in the Shadow World are intertwined within her DNA. She has never craved attention. She just wants to be able to live as normal life as she can. But she's about to find that even though she's uniquely unwelcome wherever she goes, her abilities also make her the best chance the Shadow World has to stop a threat to all the Shadow races. Once arriving home, Racquel finds that greater evils exist and that the person she cares for most in this world, her half-sister Addie, has been kidnapped along with other Shadow World beings. Racquel finds herself facing horrible odds with those who would rather see her dead than alive. As her journey continues, Racquel learns more about herself, what she is capable of, and that not every being looks at her as an abomination. Coy, a human captive that Racquel saves from the Vampires, starts showing kindness toward her. Racquel tries putting distance between her and the human boy but as they spend more time together it becomes harder and harder for Racquel to fight the affection she wants and needs. But will Coy's friendship and her new found discoveries be enough to help Racquel unravel the strangest mystery that has ever plagued the Shadow World?

We are The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club, to know more about this book, go to the post in our website: http://theunofficialaddictionbookfanclub.blogspot.com/2013/07/ffbc-tour-uniquely-unwelcome-shadow.html If you are interested, you can visit our website: http://theunofficialaddictionbookfanclub.blogspot.com The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club's Review: Welcome to Brandy Nacole's world, in which all the fantastical creatures you have read about before: shape-shifters, witches, lycans, faeries, vampires... All of them live side by side in a world called Shadow World. With a organized society all the Shadows lived in their clans or sections in the city. The Vampires live in a part of the city with humans who might disappear some day without being noticed and where lycans are not allowed to go. Then there's the witches, the faeries, the shape shifters near de mountains, etc. But all the Shadows go a little bit crazy when one of each Shadow starts to disappear, randomly, and from everywhere. That's where our main character comes in. Racquel is a crazy combination of Shadows. It all started with her great grandparents when they united a shape-shifter with a lycan. And now she's a vampire, a lycan, a shifter and a witch. Yep, pretty crazy. But imagine all the things Racquel can or could do. The Shadow society is afraid of what they don't know about, what they are not familiar about, and mingling different species it's an aberration. Racquel has lived all her life feeling the hatred of his own kind, no matter what she did. They even experimented on her to see what she was capable of. And now they needed her help to save their loved ones. She's not all convinced to saved the ones that made her life a living hell, but her witch sister (it's a long familiar tree. You'll have to read the story to know everything *wink*) has been kidnapped as well and she'd do anything for the only person that still has faith in her and doesn't treat her like a monster or some creature to be afraid of. That's where Racquel's journey starts and along with a Lycan, Ethan. They travel to the different clans, finding new people to save or to help them, a witch, a human and a vampire and together they will save not just the Shadows that are missing, but the entire Shadow World. This book promises a lot of action, love, unexpected turns and mysterious places and stories that would captivate you from the first page. If you are looking for a supernatural summer read with a lot of action and badass characters, this is your book. Although we don't feel all supernatural in summer, we love to read romantic novels while resting on the beach, this book is definitely an exception to our summer routine. And we can assure you that it's worth it. We're still concerned for the ending of the book and for the main character, Racquel, so we're looking forward to read the second book, Blood Burdens, and see what happens next, because it's blowing our minds just thinking about it!show more
Awesome book! I really enjoyed the characters and the storyline, it was unique and inspired. Brandy Nacole is a wonderful writer who pulls you right into the story and makes you never want to leave. Her stories are suspenseful heart-warming and full of spine tingling action. Uniquely Unwelcome is about Racquel a mixed heritage supernatural or Shadow and the only one of her kind. Ridiculed by all other Shadows she goes off into the world in search of someone like her but never encounters another. Defeated she comes home to the one place she ever felt any love, only to find out that the one person she was looking for, her sister Abby, has gone missing. Her sister isn't the only Shadow to go missing there have been countless others taken as well and some people believe that she maybe the one responsible. Determined to get her sister back Racquel sets out on a journey to find out what happened to these shadows and her sister and get them back. Along the way she learns a lot about herself her powers and makes friends in the unlikeliest places. Its a journey filled with fright, flights, magic, and bloodshed and it all ends in a totally terrifying and unsuspecting twist that you don't want to miss! Usually I have a favourite character in a story but this one I didn't I loved them all so much! they were awesome each in their own ways. Brandy wrote them all so well and so strong that I really couldn't say that any one of them was a favourite cause they all were! The bad guys were AWESOME! I always say how important it is to have good villains in a book and this one rocked! I totally didn't see it coming! The ending was the BEST EVER! and I totally yelled NO WAY....lol...and I can't wait for the next book! brandy is an awesome writer and you all need to be reading this book NOW!show more
