Shadow - Amanda Sun I was about to start Ink when I spied a the novella. I thought it would give me a good start to the series.

It's a short novella with two alternating perspectives of Katie, who just lost her mother. She now must deal with that loss and immersion in a whole new culture in Japan. The other POV is Tomohiro who is dealing with strange dreams and paranormal fears that seem to be true. He is alone in his fight and he keeps others away for their safe keeping. In the end they both see each other, but have yet to meet. It's a good start to keep your interest in the story which is the goal so therefore I give it 4 stars.
