Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
This is the first book in the final trilogy concerning The Chronicles of Ixia and the Glass Study series, we come back to a new story with Yelena, Valek, and everyone else we have met in the past six books. The only difference is that now Yelena doesn’t only have her life to look out for.
When Yelena was just a food taster in Poison Study, her life was much simpler and less dangerous. Now that she has survived and has become essential to the balance of power between Ixia and Sitia, she uses the power that she discovered in the first book to protect her life, her family’s life, and the life of her love, Valek.
But when just about everyone starts to attack Yelena and Valek from both sides, both politically and life wise, Yelena struggles to protect herself, especially as something has started to block her Soulfinding magic. As Valek seeks to protect himself and his job head of security to the Commander of Ixia, and Yelena seeks to find out who is behind all the plots to destroy the fragile peace that had been between Ixia and Sitia for the past seven years, she realizes that her life as a food taster was much simpler. And less dangerous as well.
