After shy, quiet Lucy and her family move from their small hometown in Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, she is surprised when Ryan, the most popular boy at school asks her out. Soon, she is swept up in a whirlwind romance and her naïve and trusting nature allows her to fall head over heels in love with her too-good-to-be suitor. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself enraptured by the excitement of her new relationship, leaving her blinded to the warning signs of danger ahead. Can her fairy tale romance last, or will she find that her prince charming is more like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Shackled is a poignant, compelling, thrilling book that made me feel a host of different emotions as well as entertain me from beginning to end. Shackled may be a thriller but it is also a book that deals with some hard-hitting themes which are not always openly discussed about. Because this thriller has an emotional truth laced between its pages, it has made me adore it even more. If you take away the theme, the book is brilliant regardless thanks to the excellent author, Angela Carling’s literature but because it does have such an important subject it makes Shackled a one of a kind thriller that should be read by everybody so, please book lovers, read this excellent book because it is sensational!
Shackled follows the protagonist of the novel, Lucy as she and her family move from a small town in Minnesota to Seattle which is a big move for Lucy and her family. When Lucy starts school, she is surprised that Ryan, one of the most popular boys asks her out and she is even more shocked when she finds herself falling in love with him fast after their whirlwind romance. However Lucy is a somewhat naive girl, I think everybody is with their first relationship, but Lucy is naive to the point that she can’t see the danger signs and can’t see that there is something troubling about Ryan. This book lovers is the premise of this moving novel and trust me when I say that it only gets more and more thrilling from this moment onwards!
The story of Shackled floored me. Its poignant themes combined with thrilling literature is sensational. It is an incredible book that can be read and enjoyed by anybody, but at the same time, Angela Carling addresses a troubling issue which will inform readers – especially young ones – and how they can avoid situations like Lucy incurs but in a hint-way. Shackled truly is a memorable read, whenever I would put this book down, I thought about it and was compelled to pick it up again soon. The fact that I was compelled to pick this book up again and very quickly, shows you that Carling is a truly talented author who knows how to have her readers be invested in her story very fast.
Angela Carling is a talented author, there is no doubt about it, and her book has even been awarded the IBPA Benjamin Franklin award which recognizes her talents as a well-accomplished author. Her beautifully written literature, which is laced with many poignant detailed sentenced, will have her readers falling madly in love with her literature. Her words will capture you and put you under her spell, and that book lovers is a sign of a talented, brilliant author.
To conclude my thoughts on Shackled which can only be described as a brilliant, suspense-filled book with twists and turns galore, I would write that Shackled is a book that should not be missed. That is why I have to award this wonderful book Five Stars!
