After cheating death, Veronica Welling is determined to savor every moment in her idyllic kingdom with both her true love and best friend by her side at last. At the same time, Mackenna Reid is enthusiastically building her new life and a theater with her prince. But just as their dreams of happiness are within reach, the world Vee and Kenna have chosen is ripped away, leaving them to face their most horrific challenge yet--their old lives. Thrust out of Doon, the best friends are confronted with tormentors from their past and no way to return to their adopted land. When the MacCrae brothers rush to their rescue, the girls' situation turns from nightmare to modern-day fairy tale. But their happiness could be short lived: unbeknownst to them, someone in their closest circle is aiding the witch of Doon in her bid to destroy the kingdom once and for all.

Modern Day teenage girls, Veronica and Makenna start making their happily-ever-after in a magical place called Doon. Both of these girls have prince husbands named, Jaime and Duncan. These two girls are trying their best to protect their kingdom but they are finding out that it isn’t very easy. Then all of the suddent the girls get transported back to the real world of America.

This is my first interaction with the Doon world. I feel like I now need to go back and read the entire series. The characters are well developed in this series. Both authors do a wonderful job with this book. The charactersexperience a lot in this book and I feel like it works out well for them. They have to put their heads together to figure out how to save their kingdom.

“Shades of Doon” is filled iwth a lot of adventure. This is definitely a romance story that is based in a fantasy world. The romance in the book is about dramatic for being a book for teenagers. I do think that the story was good overall and definitley a series I would like to go back and start from book one.
