    Elves, shifters, and elemental magic, oh my! Ben's debut gives fans of the Shannara Chronicles something new to fangirl (and boy :D) over in young adult fantasy.Okay, so I have to say First Year fans will love this one -I sent countless messages to Ben as I was reading saying things like: "OMG Priscilla's twin!" "Nyah is LIFE (Ella fans will love her)" "Your princeling is waaay nicer than mine (because Darren haters/those who love Ian will like B...

    I haven't been reading much fantasy recently, but Cloaked in Shadow has definitely reminded me why I love the YA fantasy genre so much. This is Alderson's first book and I absolutely love the world he created.I really liked the main character Zacriah, it's always interesting to read from a male POV in YA fantasy as it's not something we see as often. He is such a likeable character and I liked that he is flawed, and remains so throughout the book...

    First of all, I would just like to say a massive congratulations to Ben! 'Cloaked in Shadow' is being officially released on the 18th Dec, ( get your pre-orders in now, guys), but I was lucky enough to be sent a copy to read early and let me tell you, this will fill all the Elven voids in your life. Ben's ability to create a world of Elves where they are of all different races, shapes, sizes, personalities and strengths is what the fantasy genre ...

    So thankful to be working on this gem with Ben, he has written such a wonderful story filled with so many unique characters that I can’t help but get attached to (Nyah is my baby, I can’t wait for you guys to meet her). This is an adventure story, a love story, an lgbtq+ story, a fantasy story, WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT? More in-depth RTC when it’s released! Seriously, add this to your tbr immediately so we can all gush about Zac and Hadrian...

    I recieved an ARC in exchange for an honest review.What a story! Alderson introduces us to the world of fae with nuanced characters and intriguing magick. Nyah is someone I WANT to be friends with for sure. And Prince Hadrian is totally swoonworthy. Exquisite prose, heart-wrenching stakes, and romance that is truly unforgettable. I am holding my breath for the next book!
  • Kirsty Bonnick
    So much suspense, shocking twists and sexual tension makes cloaked in shadow a must read for the YA book fans. Every chapter includes stunning imagery and characters which take you to far away lands and it feels as if you can see, touch and smell everything right there in front of you. A brilliant example of LGBT writing breaking the mold.

    An Elf nicknamed "Zac". That's enough to DNR for me right there. Let's break down the synopsis now: the author puts "feeding his family" and avoiding a love interest into the same priority category. Seriously? Wtf is with the cover art? It looks like something that would belong to gay fantasy fanfic featuring an Elf that works part time as a go-go dancer in a gay club in Orlando. And I say that as a gay guy living in Orlando. YA- can't we demand...

    This book will have you on the edge of your seat, staying up all night to finish and a few days recovering from the emotional rollercoaster you have been on! Such a great read with great characters, it’s a must read!! I love the relationship between the main characters and how they interact with each other, cannot wait for the next book in the series!
