My rating: 5 of 5 Hearts
Living on the razors edge, Giselle Burgman's life is torn apart by her cheating boyfriend. Little does she realise that he is the least of her worries when her long term friend Alex introduces her to his family and a new, darker world. A world of lies, deceit and corruption. Thrown from one problem straight into another, the razors edge gets thinner and sharper, testing Giselle's sanity and vitality. Not even she can hide when living within the shadows.
Within the Shadows by J A Lynch is a mesmerizing read. What doesn't kill you; only makes you stronger. I laughed, smirked, and cried right along with Giselle, as she is tested in everyway imaginable and unforseeable. This is story of self discovery, coming of age, a fight for survival; you must become stronger than you ever thought possible.
The cast of characters are so vividly explored that I felt their happiness, pain, betrayal, anger, lust, jealousy and other emotions right along with them. Definitely my kinda read. I loved it.
For a YA Read this is a thrilling, mysterious, and suspenseful adventure with action-packed fight scenes, tasteful, sensual, and touching scenes that blew me away.
So waiting for Book 2 of this series.
***Highly recommend this to the mature YA readers out there due the nature of the story.***
