The Romantic Times has given The Shadow Society 4.5 stars (a friend says that this is their top rating, though wouldn’t that be 5 stars? Whatever! I’m thrilled!) and adds:
"Containing a fantastic plot, realistic characters and two vivid but fundamentally different worlds, Rutkoski’s novel is ultimately about family—what it is and who defines it. You’ll stay up late reading and you can’t skip to the end to know what happens; there is too much you would miss."
