Book Watch: The Shadow Prince

The Shadow Prince


THE SHADOW PRINCE by Bree Despain will be released in the U.S. on March 11, 2014 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by EgmontUSA the print edition is 496 pages.

THE SHADOW PRINCE is the first book in Author Bree Despain’s Into the Dark series. The second and third books in the series, currently untitled, release in 2015 and 2016 respectively.



There are a few books releasing the week of March 11th that I can’t wait for, but the book I’m most anticipating – and have been waiting ages for – is Bree Despain’s THE SHADOW PRINCE.

I feel like it’s been forever since I read a book by this author. I loved her The Dark Divine series, though I haven’t been able to read the final book and say goodbye just yet. So I’m seriously excited to begin this new series.

I love modern interpretations of the Greek myths and I can’t wait to see just how much or little of the mythology the author uses to shape her story. The description talks of a story that involves destiny and fate and a war between the gods, which makes me that much more eager to read it.

I can’t wait to meet Haden and Daphne and see whether they are able to rewrite their destinies. I can’t wait to find out whether this love story is one that ends tragically. And I can’t wait to discover just how the fates of their worlds change. I have a feeling it won’t be for the better.

When I first learned of this new series by this author I immediately added it to my TBR pile. And as soon as it was available to pre-order I clicked to buy. I’m just so glad that the wait is nearly over and THE SHADOW PRINCE will be mine to devour.

So while I’m really excited to read all three of the other awesome books releasing this week, the book I’ve been pining for the longest, with a story that I’m most curious about, by an author I’ve loved since before I became a blogger, is THE SHADOW PRINCE. Which is why I had to put it in the spotlight as this week’s book to watch.

What about you?

Have you been anxiously awaiting the release of THE SHADOW PRINCE? Is it the book you’re most excited for releasing the week of March 11th?

Do you plan on diving into this book the moment you get your hands on a copy? Or will you wait as long as you can to read it so that the wait for the sequel won’t be as torturous?

Do you love stories that are modern twists on, or interpretations of, Greek mythology? Do you love the sound of this particular story based on its description?

And are you a fan of the author and would read anything and everything she writes? Or are you just a little bit more excited because of what this new series promises?

About the Book

Goodreads description:

Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High—a haven for children of the rich and famous—Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.

Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High’s prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father’s mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn’t the only student in Olympus who doesn’t quite belong.

Haden and Daphne—destined for each other—know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. As war between the gods brews, the teenagers’ lives collide. But Daphne won’t be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended—he’s fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.
