Part Four in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger...

With no more secrets keeping them apart, Tessa and Tristan explore Tessa's developing psychic powers and embark upon a desperate search to find her missing brother and sister. But not even Tristan can keep Tessa safe from the hostile classmates at her new school, or from the nightmare that haunts her even while she's awake.


Clara Kensie really knows how to keep the page-turning suspense going!

(My review is spoiler free, but will contain a few hints here and there about where the story is going...)

FOURTH SHADOW, the beginning of part two to the RUN TO YOU series, picks up right where it left off without losing momentum - basically the author pressed pause and now we're allowed to press play and jump right into Tessa's tumultuous life with losing a minute... and hoping for the best...

Tessa has one thing on her mind - finding her brother and sister. And it is not going to be easy since they've been taught how to run and having been doing it for so long. Combine that with their psychic powers, the chances of finding them anytime soon are very, very low. But Tessa is determined to do whatever it takes, even risking her own newfound psychic power to overwhelm her to a possible oblivion, or more, her life.
Tristan is completely overwhelmed with guilt for not being their for Tessa and letting her down with the mistreatment she received from the man that was in charged in capturing her family. And is even more determined to find Tessa's siblings. His love and devotion to Tessa is impossible to measure.
And on top of all of this, Tessa and Tristan must also try to balance life at home and school, which isn't easy when you're linked to the people who hurt or killed most of the students family members.

One of the things that I really enjoyed in this part of the story is getting to know Tristan's family, their psychic powers, and how Tessa is adjusting to living with them - and if you're following the story, you will understand why! There are some major key points to be learned here, and I am so happy with the authors thoroughness with all the details and revelations.

I cannot emphasize enough on how much I am enjoying this serial series! There is no other story that can compare! A must read for those who love realistic contemporary with a paranormal element!

I received an eARC from the publisher for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.


Clara Kensie grew up near Chicago, reading every book she could find and using her diary to write stories about a girl with psychic powers who solved mysteries. She purposely did not hide her diary, hoping someone would read it and assume she was writing about herself. Since then, she's swapped her diary for a computer and admits her characters are fictional, but otherwise she hasn't changed one bit.

Today Clara is the author of super-romantic psychic thrillers for young adults. RUN TO YOU, the first serialized novel from HarlequinTEEN, begins February 1 2014 with weekly releases. The sequel, also a three-part serial, begins June 1 2014.

Her favorite foods are guacamole and cookie dough. But not together. That would be gross.
