Book Review: Secrets and Shadows (13 to Life #2) by Shannon Delany

Summary: Nothing’s simple when you run with werewolves. Jess Gillmansen thinks she’s seen it all but her eyes are about to be opened to even more danger and a reality far more paranormal than she’s suspected. With Jess’ realization that the Rusakovas’ mother is still alive and imprisoned, the group’s choices become harder and trust more important. Lines are drawn and relationships change as the broken Rusakova family struggles to reunite to free their mother – and those who Jess thought to be normal people show themselves to be much, much more…

First let me say I enjoyed Secrets and Shadows and am really looking forward to the next book. This one had a cliffhanger ending and I’m grateful to only have a 6 month wait instead of the typical year wait between sequels.

Secrets and Shadows kept me turning the pages wanting to know what happened next and had me frustrated at the same time. Pietr and Jessica’s choices drove me crazy through the first half of the book and I didn’t like or trust Sarah or Derek and just wanted them out of the picture. There are so many subplots and characters in this book that play an important roll in the story. At the end of this book we have some answers but just as many unanswered questions. This is a complex storyline with many twists and turns and I was left guessing where the story was headed but enjoyed the ride.
