Brotherhood of Shades 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Rating: 3.5/5 With a riveting, definitely different plot, great characters and plenty of historical intrigue this is a well written, enthralling story. With Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries key documents collected by a monk who foresaw these events, a young boy who survived illness that killed the rest of his family and, several hundred years later, another young boy who could see spirits moving amongst the living even before he died himself this is nothing like any book I’ve read. The Brotherhood of Shades is formed to protect the living from the dead and believe that they have found the Sentinel in the recently deceased teen, Adam Street. Together he and 14 year old Edie Freedom (who is still living) will battle to solve a prophetic riddle and thus secure the future for the world. Filled with ghosts and other spirits, alongside magic and mystery, add in a slice of history and weave them together to create a gripping new fantasy, potentially the start of a new series? Thanks to the authors, publisher and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
