    Loved the writing

    I loved the writing in Amanda Sun’s Shadow! In this particular context, I feel it really shined because of the way it focused on the detail and emotion. This is a prequel novella to Ink and was perfect for providing backstory on Katie and Tomohiro. I would say maybe one third to one half of the time we’re in the heads of the two and experience their thoughts, worries, joys in a most direct form. I loved that not only was it in first person, but it alternated between both Katie and Tomohiro! The reader gets to see Tomohiro in a new light. It’s through Tomohiro that we get closer contact with the mythology of The Paper Gods world, somewhat differently than we did in Ink or Rain. I believe it being in Tomo’s POV allowed this. The ways we come into contact with the mythology was my absolute favourite part of the novella and I hope to see more of this in Storm. In addition, it fits with the title! Tomo is noticing all these shadows and having strange dreams related to the ink. I’d recommend reading Ink and then this novella just because of the way it’s set up. There’s no spoilers so you can read Shadow then Ink, but I feel you’ll enjoy the backstory more. Plus, it was fun spotting all these references to Ink! With this novella the reader almost gets a meet-and-greet with the two main characters of The Paper Gods and I’ll be going into Storm (The Paper Gods, #3) with a new appreciation of Sun’s characters.

    Enough to make me curious...

    Interesting premise/setting but way too much of a tease plot-wise (granted that was probably the point tho). Also way too much angst going on both sides of the POVs. Too reminiscent of the 6th HP book where I found myself soldiering on just to see what happens next, all the while cringing at the flat out despair only teenage angst can bring. Nonetheless, Katie and Tomo-chan have me curious to see where this plot takes them.
