*This review may contain (and does contain) spoilers for those that have not yet indulged and read This is Shyness.*
It's been six months since the wonderful night Nia, or Wildgirl, as she was known there, spent in Shyness with Wolfboy, or Jethro, and even though they seemed to connect so well, sparks flying between them instantly, he never called her and she is left to move on, to forget, or try, all the amazing and crazy things that happened that night.
Wolfboy has changed, he's now looking after his niece, Diana, regularly and he gets along with Ortolan really well, but he can't forget Nia, hates himself for not trying to call her again, even after what happened the time he did ring... though he knows it's too late for that now.
But. But he does ring again. And Nia returns to Shyness. But in this place where the sun never rises, where it is black all night, things are getting incresingly confusing.
The Dark is dangerous. So are your dreams.

What I thought:
This is Shyness was one of my top books of 2011, number 11 actually, and I've been desperate to read this, the sequel, for ages!
It didn't disappoint, quite the opposite! I loved returning to Shyness, the crazy place where things that are strange are natural and where darkness is all anyone lives under, I loved reading about how Wildgirl and Wolfboy had changed and I loved the meeting between the two once they do meet again. They are absolutely, definitely one of my favourite book couples- they're both impefectly perfect together and I love the scenes Leanne writes between the two.
The whole book is perfection in 288 pages- I was a massive fan of This is Shyness. Now I'm a massively major fan of Leanne Hall and her work. Massively major, now that is impressive.
10 out of 5.
P.S. There is a little bit of swearing, though less then in the first book, so 14+ by my recommendation.
