Six months after K turned their lives upside down, Mikel, Citera, and their friends are beginning to settle into life inside Jaron’s camp. And with no patrols, inspectors, or Shadows around, it is a life none of them would have ever dreamed of having. However when ghosts from K’s past make an appearance and snap her usually unwavering control, Citera begins to be plagued by some strange and alarming symptoms. No longer able to keep the truth hidden, Jaron and K are forced to at last reveal the dark secret they have been keeping from the father and daughter, one that will alter the course of Citera’s life forever.
While her friends are adapting to life in paradise, Maya is struggling to survive her own personal hell. Locked in the Tower, she lives from day to day, desperate to find a way to connect with the only person who could make it all tolerable. Jarod, however, wanting to protect her from the darkness that is growing inside him, continues to push her away. But when a trip outside the Tower leads to Jarod learning that he has been lied to by the only person he ever trusted, he finds himself at a crossroads. Should he continue living the charade, protecting people who would just as soon see him dead as to look at him, or for the first time in his life, should he do what is right for him and allow himself to fall for this girl who consumes his every waking thought?

Linked picked up right where Book 1, K the Awakening, ended. Secrets are revealed and lies are unraveled in this installment. While there are many questions answered the author weaves a web that leaves you longing and demanding more.
I love the world that the author, K.R. Fajardo, has created in The Shadow Chronicles. The story is such a refreshing twist on the vampire saga. The characters are complex and well defined. You love them, hate them, and in some cases you hate that you love them. Strangely enough, I find that I am fascinated by Jarod, The Enforcer. I hate that I love him but I am convinced that under all the scars and baggage that he cares beats the heart of a champion. It is odd that the bad guy would captivate me so thoroughly. I NEED to know more about him and for him to be redeemed in the end. I cannot wait to see where all the story lines end up!
Cheree's 5 Star Review
What a book!!! What a series! If you love diving into a world, not just a story, but a world! A world with deep characters you love, you hate, and you love to hate. A world that sucks you in and you feel like you live there, the characters are your friends and you can close your eyes and picture it because the author made it live in your mind with her words. Well then my friend, this is the book for you. This story is deep and complex and I am dying to know what happens next. Can you say book hangover!
At the end of K: Awakening, Citera and her family and friends are free of Vicaris and heading to a life of freedom. Myra has left with the Enforcer and accepted a life of service to the Shadows. Linked picks up about 6 months later, and right away introduces us to some interesting new characters and reunites us with an old friend. I can't say anything else for fear of saying to much. But what I can say is this book is AWESOME! Some super intense moments and sweet and tender ones too. This book has it all!
