Book Review: Shine

Shine (Shine #3) by Jeri Smith-Ready

In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.

Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.

As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves...even if that means betraying her own heart.

Book Review
Aura has everything to look forward to when it comes to life, her ex-boyfriend/shade/ghost Logan has finally moved on and she can start enjoying life. After months of anticipation Aura finally gets to see Logan once again, but something is wrong . . . something was not right.

Flight 346 the plane Zachary was supposedly boarded has crash, no survivors . . . but when Aura finds out that Zachary was not on the plane she starts to worry. If he wasn't on the plane then where was he?

The DMP are up to something and it all has to do with Eowyn's research and Aura's mother.

Only Zachary and Aura can figure out the clues about the SHIFT, why are they the key to SHIFT?

Shine will take you on a hunt to find the answers, but how far will the truth about the SHIFT will go?

This book ended with the right farewell, and I was satisfied as a reader of how it ended along with how the final journey took place. I give this 4.5 Cat's Tails UP.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
I'm going to give it my best on my thoughts since I read this book awhile ago, I really did enjoy Shine the way Jeri wrote the final journey of Aura and Zachary.

Their relationship is put to the test when it all started with the beginning of the first couple of pages, where just for a moment that there was a near "THE END OF ZACH" but I thought about it and realizes and told myself that he couldn't die right away, it just not possible.

I love when writers writes their characters to travel to amazing places, as many of you realizes that Zach was the sexy with Scottish accent and he also is the best boyfriend Aura could ever have by gifting her plane ticket to Ireland for her and his birthday.

Aura and Zach grew very close to one another while on their birthday hideaway, but they also have a goal of figuring out Aura's mom journal and learning about the extent of how the Shade/Shift started. Aura also learns a little more about who her mom was and whose her dad is.

This book really push Aura and Zach to their breaking point but they were stronger because they love each other and love is something you can't beat or break.
