Mia is a sixteen-year old girl with the ability to talk to and control shadows. After losing her family she joins the Red Church, a group that trains super assassins in order to take revenge on those that betrayed her family. Yes, the Arya Stark/House of Black and White vibes were strong with this one.
It’s hard to judge the beginning of a series but this book came so close to being DNF’ed which is something I never do. I managed to finish but it was a struggle at times.
