Doon fans everywhere will be thrilled to read Shades of Doon, the third book in the series. All the characters readers loved from Doon and Destined for Doon are back, and authors Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon write better than ever.
In this latest installment, modern day teens Veronica and Makenna start off in their happily-ever-after place of the magical land of Doon with their handsome princes, Jaime and Duncan, only to be transported back to reality in America against their will. Like the previous two books, Shades of Doon is unabashedly girly, packed with Broadway jokes, and full of steamy–yet entirely chaste make-out scenes. The authors definitely craft a world that would be fun to visit, especially with a Scottish hottie on your arm.
After reading all three books, I feel like Jaime and Duncan come across as too old, even though they are supposed to be teenagers. However, the story works and the relationships still gel. Shades of Doon is fun and frothy and will leave Doonian fans begging for book four.
P.S. I received a free copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for my honest opinions and review.
