Review: Shadows and Light by Melissa Haag
Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light I don't know what I am, but I'm not human...and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there's a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It's the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all... WarWolf: Half breed Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn't easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits. Moved "Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong..." It's the secret Gillian's father has tried to keep from her and the reason he's so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped. Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she's willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he's willing to endure to keep her close.
I haven't really read a book before that had multiple novellas in it but honestly for this book it worked. I really enjoyed and liked all three novellas. They were all great and they connected to each other because of the family ties each character had with their families. I honestly can't say which of the three novellas was my favorite because I really really liked them all. I would recommend this book to everyone. It's just a great set of novellas and they all just stuck you into the story. Overall I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
