Shadow Days: A Nightshade Novella by Andrea Cremer

Title: Shadow Days
Author: Andrea Cremer
Series: Prequel to Nightshade

Publication Date: October 2010
Published by Philomel Books

Review:

Shadow Days is Nightshade's prequel which focuses mostly on Shay's misadventures in the Rowan Estate before he met Calla.

In Shadow Days, we get to meet Shay's friends before he moved to the Estate; and how he was forced to take upon the duty of updating his facebook page and blog, both which are mentioned in the book.

Shadow Days is told in Shay's POV. I have to say I really, really admire his voice. He's funny, adventurous, cute and gets pissed off easily. If you've read my review of Nightshade, you know that I have a super crush on Shay (he has super cute eyebrows!). And did you know he has a Facebook page? And a website, too! I like how his activities in his website and facebook are mentioned in the book - which means Shadow Days is like based on real life. The vids and people he mentioned in the book are real as well. Awesome!

The book ends with Shay being attacked by the grizzly in the mountain which is when exactly Nightshade begins with Calla's POV. Shadow Days is the perfect prequel to Nightshade. It made me want to jump Andrea again. (>///<)

The novella is super short, so if you liked Nightshade and Shay, you must read this novella NOW!

About the Author:

Andrea Cremer spent her childhood daydreaming and roaming the forests and lakeshores of Northern Wisconsin. She now lives in Minnesota, but she thinks of her homeland as the “Canadian Shield” rather than the Midwest.

Andrea has always loved writing and has never stopped writing, but she only recently plunged into the deep end of the pool that is professional writing. When she’s not writing, Andrea teaches history at a very nice liberal arts college in St. Paul.

In the little spare time she can find, Andrea stares up at trees, rescues infant rabbits from predatory cats, and invents names for pug puppies with her husband. She has an unfortunate tendency to spill things – white carpets beware!

Her debut novel, NIGHTSHADE, the first of a YA fantasy series, will be published in fall 2010 by Penguin (Philomel).
