Shadow Eyes reminded me of books like this present darkness and piercing the darkness. There’s angels and demons and they are intimately involved in the day to day struggles of human morals. Everyone struggles with right and wrong, but Iris Kohl understands that struggle more than most. When characters in her world consider making unwise decisions she sees shadows appear around them. Sometimes she sees light figures giving guidance and driving the shadows away. When a new teacher and two mysterious new students transfer to Iris’s school her life gets complex. This novel kept me engaged and curious right to the end. I worried for Iris and her loved ones and wondered about Iris’s mysterious past. I’m interested to see what the rest of the books in this series will be like.
