The second book in the popular new Doon YA series that takes on a classic story, Brigadoon, and spins it in a new way to give readers a fresh, modern experience.

In this sequel to Doon, Kenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake-choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. Worse, she's received proof she and Duncan are meant to be, along with torturous visions of the prince she left behind. So when Duncan shows up and informs Kenna that Doon needs her, she doesn't need to think twice. But even if Kenna can save the enchanted kingdom, her happily ever after may still be in peril.

The Doon novels are a part of Blink, HarperCollins Christian Publishing's new YA imprint that delivers empowering and heartening literature while maintaining a tradition of imaginative and impactful storytelling.

Carey Corp wrote her first book, a brilliant retelling of Star Wars, at the prodigious age of seven. Since then, her love affair of reinvention has continued to run amuck. Writing both literary fiction and stories for young adults, she begins each morning consuming copious amounts of coffee while weaving stories that capture her exhaustive imagination. She harbors a voracious passion (in no consistent order) for mohawks, Italy, musical theater, chocolate, and Jane Austen. Her debut novel for teens, The Halo Chronicles: The Guardian, earned her national recognition as 2010 Golden Heart finalist for best young adult fiction. Coming August 20, 2013: Doon (book 1 of the DOON series), a young adult novel loosely based on the concept of the musical Brigadoon, used with permission from the Alan Jay Lerner Estate & the Frederick Loewe Foundation, and co-written with Lorie Langdon.

A few years ago, Lorie Langdon left her thriving corporate career with a Fortune 500 company to satisfy the voices in her head. Now as a full-time author and stay-at-home mom, she spends her summers editing poolside while dodging automatic water-gun fire, and the rest of the year tucked into her cozy office, Havanese puppy by her side, working to translate her effusive imagination into the written word. Her co-written four-book series, DOON, a YA reimagining of the Scottish legend of Brigadoon, will release beginning in August 2013 from Zondervan/Harper Collins.

First off YES I know I'm late this was so supposed to be done by now!  But with 1 sick kid and then me and my stupid migraines it just didnt happen.  I really did just finish this like maybe 10 minutes ago! Better late than never.  Ok so into the review so I can start Shades of Doon lol.  Its just that good. 

Second off I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the authors did their recap.  So many books are bogged down with it that it makes the book slow as molasses and I'm excited to say that this book didnt do that.  However, if you havent read book one you should.  The recap that is done isn't enough to read these out of order.  

This one again is in dual POV with our lovelies Vee and Kenna and well this one is Kenna heavy which was AWESOME!!  I really loved being in her POV for most of this book.  

This one also ends on a cliffhanger. So you've been warned.  Really hoping book three doesnt do that or I'm going to die. DIE I TELL YOU!!  
Or maybe just cry until book 4 comes out which of course will make me cry anyway. 

This story is about coming home, learning to forgive the most important person yourself. and of course what are you willing to sacrifice to save those you love.  

Its an amazing journey with humor, danger, and love. Still Outlander for teens this book will leave you in tears as you read the last pages.  Once again the kingdom of Doon is in danger!  

The characters in this book are still amazing the story fast paced and well just plan yummy.  I fell so much for Kenna.  In my 33 years ive been where she is always worrying how long its going to take people around me to decide that me and issues arent worth the effort.  This was a great book about self love, self worth, and self forgiveness.  

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Cliffhanger, Romance, Danger

Have tissues you WILL CRY!

Also if you don't know the ending to Harry Potter (if you don't you've been living under a rock) but if you don't DONT READ the first part of the Epilogue !!!
