Overview

Meet two teens whose worlds are about to change forever in this paranormal Young Adult novella, a prequel to Ink by debut author Amanda Sun…

Katie Greene's worst nightmare comes true when her mother dies, and she's devastated to learn that she will have to leave the only home she's ever known. Desperate to find where she belongs, she must decide if she has what it takes to start a new life across the ocean.

For Yuu Tomohiro, every day is a nightmare. He struggles to control his strange ability, and keeps everyone at a distance so they won't get hurt—even his girlfriend, Myu. At night, a shadow haunts his dreams, and a mysterious woman torments him with omens of death and destruction. But these haunting premonitions are only the beginning…

Don't miss the moment when Katie's and Tomohiro's worlds collide in Ink, book one of The Paper Gods series from Harlequin TEEN.

This novella was amazing. A bit depressing in the beginning but starts lighting up a little in the middle. There was a few typos though. This novella sort of reminds me of anime and manga's. And if your a big fan of anime, like me, you'll already know the japanesse phrases they use in this story. Anyways why don't you give it a try? And I gotta say I am looking forward to the full length novella of this which is on the 24 of June. :D Happy reading.

Worth Reading... Total Pages: 78...Story Pages: 67...Free e-short story Not sure what genre to classify this one as because it was just too short to know. It was pretty interesting. I really liked the Japanese aspect allot (plot, characters, the fact that the author used some actual Japanese throughout the story, etc.). I liked it enough to want to read more. Plus, I want to know what happens when the main female character (the lone American girl in a Japanese school) meets the main male character (a tormented--by some sort of inner demons or curse--Japanese boy that is in school where the main female character is). Looking forward to reading more!

Getting a glimpse at the events leading up to Ink is fascinating. Getting to see it in both Katie's and Tomo's POVs even more so. I love when there's novellas or short stories to go along with a series, it makes the story's world feel that much fuller and this one did not disappoint.

I loved the writing in Amanda Sun’s Shadow! In this particular context, I feel it really shined because of the way it focused on the detail and emotion. This is a prequel novella to Ink and was perfect for providing backstory on Katie and Tomohiro. I would say maybe one third to one half of the time we’re in the heads of the two and experience their thoughts, worries, joys in a most direct form. I loved that not only was it in first person, but it alternated between both Katie and Tomohiro! The reader gets to see Tomohiro in a new light. It’s through Tomohiro that we get closer contact with the mythology of The Paper Gods world, somewhat differently than we did in Ink or Rain. I believe it being in Tomo’s POV allowed this. The ways we come into contact with the mythology was my absolute favourite part of the novella and I hope to see more of this in Storm. In addition, it fits with the title! Tomo is noticing all these shadows and having strange dreams related to the ink. I’d recommend reading Ink and then this novella just because of the way it’s set up. There’s no spoilers so you can read Shadow then Ink, but I feel you’ll enjoy the backstory more. Plus, it was fun spotting all these references to Ink! With this novella the reader almost gets a meet-and-greet with the two main characters of The Paper Gods and I’ll be going into Storm (The Paper Gods, #3) with a new appreciation of Sun’s characters.
