This story was emotional in the best of ways.
Ariana’s life has been full of emotional manipulations. I can’t believe she came out normal out of such harrowing experiences. I love her naivety while also being absolutely scared for her. I just really adored her and wanted her to get her HEA.
Killian had such a tremendous growth in the story and I really loved his journey. His love for Ari was so innocent and pure and I adored them together.
While the story was beautifully written, I couldn’t fully connect to it. I just kept thinking something was missing but couldn’t put my finger on it. The book is really raw, emotional and full of an epic love. Being new to Shannon, I think it was a really good introduction to her writing. I’m really looking forward to more from her.

Ten years ago, I saved his life.
The daughter of a megachurch pastor, I always assumed that the walls were there to protect me. Now, I see that they’re meant to hold me captive. My father’s followers were my family, his church my home, and his teachings my law.
When Killian re-entered my life, I was nineteen. A lost soul in need of a savior. He started out as a distraction. A distraction that quickly grew into compulsion. I tried to stay away, but he stirred up something within me that was more real than anything I ever experienced inside the church.
What happens when a girl from the inside falls in love with a boy on the outside?
He’s a baseball player, known around the entire world, and I’m—well, I’m nothing more than a hostage of my faith.
Perhaps it’s fitting that his name means church as he is my sanctuary.
Ten years ago, I saved his life. If only he could save mine.
Through The Water is the second book in the Fairest series, but can be enjoyed as a complete stand alone.
