Sunny has a gift that she has no idea how to use, until she meets Leif, a boy from the kingdom of Acadia, on the other side of the shadows.

Leif teaches Sunny about Shadow Walkers and how to use her new found gifts. As they grow closer and their gifts grow stronger, a threat arrives. The Shadow Guard has been sent to bring Sunny back to Acadia, to determine if she is a threat to the king as the rightful ruler of Acadia.

As Leif and Sunny prepare to defend themselves, Sunny finds that Leif has also been sent to bring Sunny back to the kingdom but for very different reasons. As a battle for possession of Sunny wages, she is struggling to come to turns with her feelings of inadequacy regarding controlling her gifts as well as the hurt regarding the lies and deceit of everyone around her.


After learning she has special gifts, Sunny meets Leif of the kingdom of Acadia which exits on the other side of shadows. Soon the Shadow Guard are dispatched to bring Sunny before the king and determine if she's a threat to the throne. Leif has also been sent to retrieve her for different reasons. As the war for her power rages she struggles to come to grips with the betrayal all around her.

Shadow Dancer is a fun read. When Sunny realizes she is a Shadow Walker, life starts to get strange. Able to manipulate the shadows around her to make herself invisible she becomes a target for the Shadow Guard. The king of Acadia wants her dead. Leif also wants her powers but for other reasons. Sunny is strong, funny and smart never failing to hold up when it counts, she's no wilting wallflower. And though she comes to love Leif, she doesn't fall blindly into anything. Leif is patient, kind, a protector of sorts. A tracker, he can tell where Shadow Walkers are which certainly is a help to Sunny. I found all the characters endearing. If you like your stories with tons of world building and sweet romance, you'll love Shadow Dancer.

  2. Great review of this wonderful story! I've read this book and agree that all of the characters are very endearing. Sunny has spunk and Courtney did a wonderful job of bringing her personality to light. I can't wait to read the next book in this series!
