The Faerie have come to take London, and only one girl stands in their way. Justice isn’t your average fifteen-year-old girl. She’s an irrepressible scoundrel, and she always has a plan. But her world falls apart when her father forcibly bundles the entire family into carriages in the middle of the night and carts them off to a strange mansion on the outskirts of Victorian London. The Faerie are invading, but the Kasric siblings can’t stay neutral in the ensuing war when they find their parents on opposing sides. Justice has no choice but to embrace her burgeoning magical powers to fight against the Faerie and save her family.

What I liked:
Shadows over London is the first book in a series where Justice and her family find themselves in the middle of a fairy invasion. Justice has witnessed her father playing chess with the fairy king, seen the wild hunt, and is determined not to stand by in some safe house. Justice has a delicate relationship with her mother, who quickly abandons her children at a safe place, and there is a rather graphic attack involving cats. The story is drawn out to get into as the majority of the book is Justice trying to figure out what exactly she has seen and what is happening.
Final Verdict:
Shadows over London is a fairy book involving a battle between humans and a fairy. Once we discover how the chess games are involved and why Justice's father is acting weirdly, the real action begins. Inside these pages, you will find war, betrayal, secrets, magic, and a fantastic start to adventurous series.
