The Shadow Society
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Darcy Jones doesn't remember anything before the day she was abandoned as a child outside a Chicago firehouse. She has never really belonged anywhere—but she couldn't have guessed that she comes from an alternate world where the Great Chicago Fire didn't happen and deadly creatures called Shades terrorize the human population.
Memories begin to haunt Darcy when a new boy arrives at her high school, and he makes her feel both desire and desired in a way she hadn't thought possible. But Conn's interest in her is confusing. It doesn't line up with the way he first looked at her.
As if she were his enemy.
When Conn betrays Darcy, she realizes that she can't rely on anything—not herself, not the laws of nature, and certainly not him. Darcy decides to infiltrate the Shadow Society and uncover the Shades' latest terrorist plot. What she finds out will change her world forever . . .
In this smart, compulsively readable novel, master storyteller Marie Rutkoski has crafted an utterly original world, characters you won't soon forget, and a tale full of intrigue and suspense.

Eye opening attention grabber
Ok so books to you may just be a few words on a page but this one is written by an author who is a prodigy in making a heart stopping and colorful pieces of art. My eyes were literally so glued to the page there was no stopping me. In the world of writing sure Twilight and Divergent are popular and good reads but honestly you have not lived a life full of color until you have tried reading Rutkoski's amazing novel. Im not recommending this book but giving you a ticket on a train going directly to happiness.
