Book Review: Shadow TEARS by A.J. Tupps
This book is a YA novel, however, it is loaded with mythology, paranormal, fantasy and much more. I like historical based stories and the elements of history mixed with fantasy in this story were a surprise as I read. The idea behind the plot is there are another realms and the one of shadows really captured my imagination. As a new author, it would be hard to balancing the different realms, but Tupps did a beautiful job in keeping it all straight and engaging.
This story is like no other I have read for a long time. It is filled with angst and it is difficult not to empathize with Selena. But she overcomes so much grief and hardship for a girl her age. What was also wonderful about this book and a typical theme among YA novels is the coming of age story plot. Readers of all ages will be able to relate to the characters and understand the pains of growing up not only in our own world, but in alternate realms as well.
