Shades of Doon: 4 Things to Get Before You Go to Doon

Shades of Doon

Shades of Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Shades of Doon is the third book in the Doon series and my favorite so far. I’ve enjoyed each book a little more than the last and I’m looking forward to reading the fourth book when it comes out.

In this book, Veronica and Kenna are magically thrust out of Doon and sent back to their old lives. It doesn’t take long for their princes to come searching for them and take them back to Doon, but they quickly find out that the Witch is still around. In fact, she’s more powerful than ever.

As before, my favorite characters remain as Kenna and Duncan. They are believable characters with a realistic relationship. The story is entertaining and didn’t conform to many of the YA formulas out there. Most of the relationship issues have been worked out already and the two couples moved forward together. Although there is some violence and lots of kissing, the book stayed very clean. This is a good series for young adults ages 12 and up that like fantasy, romance, and adventure.

Content: kissing and a small amount of violence.


I received a copy of this book from the Blogging for Books program.

Are you a fan of the Doon series? I went on a hunt to find makeup that reminded me of Shades of Doon. Since an epic winter has descended on the land of Doon, I looked for beauty products with that theme. So if you’re feeling magical today, or you are going to Doon in the near future (I know I am!), then check out these lovelies. Happy reading!
