Shades of Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

About the Book
After cheating death, Veronica Welling is determined to savor every moment in her idyllic kingdom with both her true love and best friend by her side at last. At the same time, Mackenna Reid is enthusiastically building her new life and a theater with her prince. But just as their dreams of happiness are within reach, the world Vee and Kenna have chosen is ripped away, leaving them to face their most horrific challenge yet—their old lives.
Thrust out of Doon, the best friends are confronted with tormentors from their past and no way to return to their adopted land. When the MacCrae brothers rush to their rescue, the girls’ situation turns from nightmare to modern-day fairy tale. But their happiness could be short lived: unbeknownst to them, someone in their closest circle is aiding the witch of Doon in her bid to destroy the kingdom once and for all.

My Thoughts
After loving the first two books in this series I absolutely could not wait to read this book and I was quite ecstatic when I got a copy in the mail! I loved once again being transported to the magical world of Doon, these authors certainly know how to right in such a way that you feel like your in another time and place! I am absolutely in love with the fictional kingdom that they've created and I desperately wish that it was real!
It was fabulous to catch up with Jamie, Veronica, Duncan and McKenna and I loved watching their relationships deepen and grow! Those McCrae boys are certainly some swoon-worthy heroes! It was so much fun to watch their reactions to things in the real world!
There were so many twists and turns throughout the entire book that I was constantly on the edge of my seat and I didn't want to stop reading! And of course the authors once again ended on a cliff-hanger and now I am desperate for book four's release!

Meet the Authors
Carey Corp lives in the metropolitan Midwest with her loveable yet out-of-control family. Carey wrote her first book at the age of seven, and currently begins each morning consuming copious amounts of coffee while weaving stories that capture her exhaustive imagination. She harbors a voracious passion (in no consistent order) for mohawks, Italy, musical theater, chocolate, and Jane Austen. Carey’s debut novel for teens, The Halo Chronicles: The Guardian, earned her national recognition as 2010 Golden Heart finalist for best young adult fiction and was recently featured at the 2012 RT Booklovers Convention in Chicago in YA Alley.

Lorie Langdon has over ten years of experience writing online and print advertising for a Fortune 500 company, and left her thriving corporate career to satisfy the voices in her head. Now as a full-time author and stay-at-home mom, she spends her summers editing poolside while dodging automatic water-gun fire, and the rest of the year tucked into her cozy office, Havanese puppy by her side, working to translate her effusive imagination into the written word and continue to build the young-adult-focused blog, HonestlyYA.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
