Nothing can explain to Aydan Fulbert how she survived the savage attack in the woods. Why her left eye, instead of being blinded by the injuries she'd sustained, had simply turned a shocking shade of silver. And nothing can explain the fact that she can hear the Stranger speaking in her mind - or that she can answer him back without using her mouth.

Nothing can explain it - unless he's telling the truth.

Nothing can explain the things the Stranger knows about her - things that she, until just a few hours ago, hadn't known herself: that she'd healed faster from her injuries than was humanly possible. That the cruel family she'd been raised by isn't biologically hers. That her stepfather is now hell-bent on bringing her to his own form of justice for a crime she didn't commit.

Nothing can explain it - unless he's telling the truth.

Nothing can explain why she so easily agreed to go with the Stranger. Why she didn't find the notion of another world ludicrous and impossible. Why she didn't cut and run the minute he explained where he wanted to take her.

Nothing can explain it - unless she believes he's telling the truth.

Aydan knows she's being intentionally naive. She knows her decision to follow the Stranger is at best, reckless. At worst, deadly.

...unless he's telling the truth.

Both this book, and its seqeul, The Darkening are truly enjoyable, with sympathetic protagonists and two periolous worlds to navigate. I read them quickly but will defininitely reread them to savor all the elements again. Very satisfying fiction.

Aydan Fulbert has just graduated high school and her best friend, Brig Cooper, is there to help her celebrate the momentous occasion. Now that they have a few months before she leaves for college, Brig has plans to make it even more memorable by moving their relationship out of friend realm and into boyfriend/girlfriend. But the new couple face the obstacles of Aydan's abusive and controlling father, Lenox, and vindictive sister, Calista. As a graduation present Calista tells Aydan that she was found in the woods by her parents and isn't their biological child. A horrible altercation occurs leaving Aydan injured and left on her own. Days pass before Brig and his father finally located her, but her step-father, turns the incident around on Aydan blaming her for hurting Calista and locking her up. Aydan escapes with help from Brig and the couple seeks refuge at Brig's grandmother's house. But now that Brig and Aydan are relatively safe, new dangers come after them with the appearance of Rein Torvold. Rein insists that Aydan comes from a different world, the same world that he is from, and that not only does she have family there but he was sent to bring her home. Determined to be reunited with her family, Aydan and a disbelieving Brig accompany Rein on a harrowing journey to the Door to the other world. Only tragedy befalls Aydan again on the journey and the new world that she believes will be her salvation is rife with its own political intrigues that threaten to destroy Aydan. As soon as I started reading Shrilugh (pronounced Shree-loo) I was hooked. I could not put the book down and stayed up way past bedtime needing to know what happens next. Myndi Shafer has created two rich, vibrant worlds and I was especially loved the mix of the archaic and modern once we were introduced to Rein's world. The characters are well developed and I felt an immediate connection to Aydan. Here's a girl who has been horribly abused by those that are supposed to love her, but she's determined to make her life into what she wants. Shrilugh evokes a lot of emotion during the course of the book and even though there's tragedy, there's also triumph and love. The book ends with a lot of questions unanswered, but never fear...Book 2, The Darkening, has been released so you can (and should) continue the saga immediately. Note: I received an e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
