Brotherhood of Shades by Dawn Finch

He's brought into the hospital cold and sick and unknown.  He can't tell them who he is and he really doesn't remember.  They call him Adam because that's the street he was found on.  He's fourteen and now he's going to die.  What he doesn't know is that he will be more alive after he's dead...

LightBrigade PR sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published in paperback on September 19th (you can grab an ebook now), so check with your local bookstore then.

The Brotherhood of Shades maintains a balance between good and evil.  You can't see them, very few people are invited into the brotherhood, and the war is deadly.  They are looking for a savior, a Sentinel; they are hoping Adam is the one.  After all, he could see Sister.  She's been a ghost for about four hundred years, so he has some powers.

Adam actually has quite a bit of power, but he needs to learn to use it.  The opposite team is not waiting for him to prepare, they're attacking.  Can Adam be useful when his knowledge is not complete?

There's an interesting twist near the end of this book.  The Sentinel is not who you think it is.  This was interesting read and even includes a witch as well as elementals.  If you like fantasy and odd creatures (I do), this one will please you.

Happy reading.
