A review by Free Book Reviews
am 7. September 2011
Overall Feedback: To start out I was traversing facebook and came across this page for a group called Indie Writers Unite. being a reviewer of Indie books I had to join as this would add to my ability to get books to review. Upon joining the group I met this author from across the pond in England named Shea MacLeod. I was immediately intrigued because I am a fan of Highlander and MacLeod is the last name of the one. Who could pass that up. Shea started posting to my posts in the group and I found she shared a joy in horror movies and I just had to read her book, although it seemed to be romance and I am not a big fan of romance, so I picked it up. Let me tell you now that I am SO happy that I decided to grab it for a read and SO will you. Shea does a great job of taking a "tired" genre, vamps and romance, and adding her claim to the story. You will fall head over heels for Inigo and Jack, the two heartthrob men in the novel and Morgan will have all men wagging their tongues. You will be just as torn between the two men as morgan and will feel every choice she makes. So go ahead an grab a copy. What are you waiting for this is a "Buffy meets Twilight meets Harry Potter meets Underworld" book and who doesn't love all of those?
Point of View: You are a everyday woman that is thrown into a world you never knew was there and have to make choices you never thought you could make. Be Morgan and find more excitement in Portland than you thought possible.
Voice: This is where Shea excels and brings her own spin to an otherwise overdone genre.
Character Development: You will sweat it out with the three main characters just as Shea wanted (I assume) and will be trying to make them do as you want. You will find yourself disagreeing with the choices of the characters although they are just on the pages of a book and can not possibly hear you.
Plot: All I can say is buy the 2nd installment of this series now! You will want to keep going to find out what happens next. Fast paced and stops on a cliffhanger.
Dialogue: Just adds to the intrigue of the characters and makes the reader fall for each.
Pacing: Non-stop intrigue to the last delicious drop.
Setting: Portland... Who knew?
Continuity: The reader will be able to tell there is more to the stroy and this is a great example of how to start a series that can and will go on for as long as the author chooses.
