Genre: Fantasy, Magical Realism, Dystopian


The stakes have risen, and this time, Melaina doesn’t think she can pay the price.

Not only is she wanted by every faction, but the Resistance is closer than ever to reaching their goal.

Not. Her. Problem. Melaina’s plans are simple: run and hide.

But when she’s offered a clean slate in exchange for one week spying on the Resistance, she can’t help but take it. Since she’s already planning to rescue Aiden, she has nothing to lose. What she finds, however, is so far from what she expects, it is not even in the list of possibilities.

Now she’ll have to choose: forfeit her life or risk a war no one can win.

My Review:

All Melaina wants is to rescue her brother. There are a lot of people who want a piece of her. All Melaina wants to do is run and hide from the world but she can’t do that until she finds her brother and saves him.

Melaina goes undercover to save her brother from certain doom. Melaina puts her own life in danger with this task. Her road to freedom for herself and her brother may cost her dearly in the end. But it is a price she is willing to pay or is it?

Can Melaina save herself, her brother, and everyone else before it is too late? Can she save the ones she loves the most? Or will this be her last sacrifice to the world?

I loved seeing Melaina let her beast lose when this happened the story ramped up in more ways than one. I could see it all in my head as it played out as if I was right there fighting alongside Melaina.

The world-building in this one was astronomical, to say the least. The twists kept the pages turning. Once I picked up Shadow War I was hooked from beginning to end. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see what lay around the next turn.

I highly recommend Shadow War to all fans of magical realism! Grab your copy of Shadow War today!

About the Author:

Jina Bazzar is a Palestinian author, born and raised in Brazil.

Like most writers, her love of books began at a young age. Unlike most writers, she never aspired to become one.

It was only years after she became blind that she tried her hand at writing, giving voice to all the wild, rambling thoughts in her mind.

She now lives in Palestine with her family, taking inspiration from the smallest things in life. When she’s not writing or networking on social media, you can find her in the kitchen, baking while listening to (often very loud) music.
