The Shadow Prince by Stacey O'Neale *Review*

* I downloaded this ebook for free on* 

Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission: 

Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.

Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he's capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?


First off I want to say that this is a novella and a prequel to the Mortal Enchantment series and it is a Young Adult fantasy series.  

I read this on the Saturday night and I am glad it was short because I just couldn't stop reading it. It was exciting and it got my hooked .  There is a cliffhanger and it got me to want to read the series to find out what happened next. 

This novella is very well written and like I said it will make you want to read what happens next right away.  
I highly recommend The Shadow Prince by Stacey O'Neale .

I give this 5 out of 5

This novella is currently free at,, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
