The Gray Horizon by M. Kircher

Where did I get it?

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for and honest review.


What does it mean to be brave? This is the question Caden must answer as he accompanies Thea, Ben, Rain, and Naomi back out under the dark clouds of the canopy, to rescue Viv from the deadly shadows and save a shattered Earth from the brink of destruction. Caden’s lazy, arrogant nature is tested as the group draws closer to finding Viv, forcing him to confront his inner demons and admit his feelings for Thea—even as their relationship is threatened by her ever-growing connection to Ben.

Will Caden discover his true potential? Or, when the group uncovers a devastating secret and faces a betrayal that has the power to turn the tide in the war with the shadows, will he abandon his friends and go back to a life of never-ending darkness?

Find out in The Gray Horizon, the exciting, action-packed sequel to The War Inside.


The cover works with the story. It’s clean and simple which I like.

Initial Thoughts

Book two started right where book one finished off. It was a nice, smooth transition. I really enjoyed the first book so my expectations were pretty high for this one.

My New BFF

Thea used to be my BFF but I found she was less intense in this book. I really admired her for her strength and how she could take care of herself but I found we didn’t see as much of her in this book. That made me sad. I really missed her. She was kind of just the pathetic girl who missed her new friend. She was too sad for me in this book but I wanted to keep loving her so bad. She disappointed me a little.

My Crush

Caden was easily my favourite in this book. I thought it was hilarious how he never admitted that he liked Thea until it sort of hit him. I thought it was great seeing into his mind a little bit because we got to know him a little better. He definitely kept the book light. I thought he was super funny and entertaining. Whenever him and Rain got together I had a good laugh. The only thing that bothered me about him was that he could get a little cheesy when talking about Thea. Their relationship was really cute though.

Writing Style

I think this book was fast paced with lots of action. There was a lot of information thrown at us though but the author made it fairly easy to keep track of everything. Most of the characters were all well developed, except Thea, who I was a little disappointed with.

Closing Thoughts

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a little short for me, but the author made good use of all her words. I think that it was typical for a second book. First and last books are always great but the middle books have a lot of setting up to do for the final battle. I could tell there was a lot of setting up in this book for an epic battle. I liked the dystopian society that the author has created in this series. I enjoyed that it was an adventure story as well as a dystopian, it made it a little different. I’d recommend this series to anyone who likes a fun and unique adventure.

4 out of 5 stars
