Book Review: Shades of Doon (Doon #3)

Shades of Doon (Doon #3) by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
Publication Date: September 1, 2015

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.

GAH!! Can I just give this every star imaginable please? Something like infinity stars? Is that a thing? Because this book deserves that type of rating!! Everything about this book is perfection, and if you aren't reading this series you need to drop everything and go get the first book so you can join in on the adventure of a lifetime. Every book just gets better and better, and this just might be my favorite thus far. The writing is phenomenal and sweeps you away to the gorgeous world of Doon. Every single word and every single scene is beautifully written, and allows you to see the scenes as if they are playing right in front of you. The world building is even more perfect, and every book reveals another layer to the story. It just gets better and better as you go along!

Vee and Kenna are 2 of the best lead characters. The dual POVs adds so much to this story, and makes it feel more complete. Each girl is very different, and you can easily tell who is talking. It is extremely difficult to have dual POVs and those 2 POVs being both girls. It runs the risk of both girls sounding similar and confusion because of this. But that is definitely not the case here. Ms. Corp and Ms. Langdon do an excellent job at giving each girl a unique voice and personality. 

Lastly, I just want to hit on the progression of the story/plot. I am blown away by how far we have come since the first novel. I am really loving the development of the characters and the storyline itself. There are major changes coming (heck, they're already here), and I am greatly looking forward to see what the authors have in store for us next! I wish we didn't have to wait so long for the next book, so for now, I'm going to be waiting....very very patiently. And let me tell you

Happy reading :)
