Leah's always seen the shadow creatures. She thought she was immune to their evil-until now. She's walked into a massacre, stolen a BMW, and is running from the law for a crime she didn't commit. Nineteen-year-old Leah's life just went from mildly abnormal to totally crazy at lightning speed. But no one will believe that the shadow creatures are framing her for the murder, because she's the only one that can see them. At least that's what she thought. When Leah stumbles across a group who share her ability, she discovers they have something she doesn't: a way to fight back. When the group offers to teach her how to kill the shadow creatures, Leah jumps at the chance. But something is brewing with the creatures. They're tracking down the hunters like there's no tomorrow. Leah suspects that maybe there won't be, and it's up to her to make sure tomorrow comes. Because she'll do anything to stop the shadows, including risking her life-and the life of the one she loves-to keep the world from being lost to darkness forever.

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Part of this book reminded me of the way The Mortal Instruments started off, in the way that only Leah could see the evil things known as Shadows. So, when her whole family was killed, she could not stay because people would obviously view her as a suspect in murdering her family. The Shadows. That’s what she called them. I got really excited while reading this book, because it became so alien-ish. And the other thing that I quite liked was that there wasn’t really a main romantic focus in this book. It mainly talks about the Shadows, though there were hints of feelings here and there. As for Leah, I really liked her character. I find her unique, because she has this sarcastic charm HAHA. Every word that comes out of her mouth has a hidden sarcasm, and it’s sad because she used that sarcasm to hide the fact that she feels guilty for her family’s death. Guys, you need this book okay 🙂

About Meradeth Houston

Meradeth’s never been a big fan of talking about herself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about her:

-She’s a Northern California girl. And now is braving the cold winters in Montana.
-When she’s not writing, she’s sequencing dead people’s DNA. For fun!
-She’s also an anthropology professor and loves getting people interested in studying humans.
-If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.
