Book Description

Beware what lurks in the darkness of Cege Smith's paranormal Shadows series...

Darkness has been Ellie Coulter's constant companion since her parents' untimely death when she was eight, and she harbors a secret that never fails to remind her that she's different than everyone else. Fresh off a failed marriage with a man who harbored his own dark secrets, Ellie shut herself off from the world as a form of self-preservation.

For months, Ellie's protective bubble includes nothing but her coffee shop, her few friends, and her dog. The attention of a handsome young doctor, David Mitchell, pushes her out of her comfort zone, and Ellie warms to the idea that she may have found a risk worth taking.

Then one of Ellie's friends abruptly leaves town; entrusting her home to Ellie's care. The house has its own mysterious past that draws Ellie into a tangled web of deceit. Her ex-husband resurfaces with premonitions of Ellie's death. And suddenly Ellie's life is being turned upside down yet again.

Something old and evil has found Ellie, and wants to keep her all to itself.

Edge of Shadows (Shadows #1)
Shadows Deep (Shadows #2)
Veiled Shadows (Shadows #3)

5.0 out of 5 stars Took care of a long plane ride January 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I had this book in my kindle app for a few weeks before getting around to reading it. Then I got on a long flight and it was a lifesaver. I immediately got engrossed and it made time fly (haha.). I'm ready for a sequel, but can't say why without giving away parts of the ending ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting and engaging page-turner January 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I started reading I didn't want to put it down, and when I was forced to put it down, I couldn't wait to pick it back up! The character development was very thorough which made me feel like I really knew who these characters were and made the storyline that much more personal and suspenseful. This book is a great choice for when you want to take a break and just enjoy a really good and mysterious story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great suspense with a twist February 5, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could not stop reading this book. The writer is terrific at creating suspense, and the characters are well developed. The ending was a twist I did not expect. My only nitpick is that there were typos that could have been avoided by using a professional editor. Still, they weren't so glaring that they took me out of the story.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book seriously lacked definition February 21, 2012
By lorrie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of books on my kindle since receiving it as a gift for
Christmas, some really good, some o.k., but this book irritated me so much that
it made me want to write a review, so that others can beware, this book was awful.
I read the whole thing hoping that the characters and storyline would get better
definition, it did not. You go through the whole book without a clue as to where
the author is taking the plot, the whole supernatural bit is confusing and the ending is lousy. It obviously ends with a sequel in the works, hopefully for those of you who will want to read it, sorry, not me. The first book has to be good enough for me to pick up the sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry. This was awful. February 3, 2012
I've heard better campfire stories.

The characters are poorly developed and make absolutely stupid choices. The writing style is repetitive. Three quarters of the book is essentially "I feel strange about something" followed by a few pages of "Hey, these characters are really monsters" followed by a page or two of wrap up.

Also, my copy had a blank page. Maybe that was where all of the interesting parts fell out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good start, not so much for a good ending
The beginning was great, but somewhere towards the middle the plot seemed to take a turn for the boring, and then, it just lost me towards the end. I didn't like it much. Read more

More About the Author

The written word is fundamental to who I am and what I do. When I was a kid, I escaped reality by diving into books that perhaps were sometimes too mature for me, but gave me a glimpse of "what if". I had the typical wild imagination and I was able to dream up all sorts of crazy new worlds to sink into based on the latest book I'd read.

I made my first foray into writing my own stuff when I was twelve. I wrote about two sisters trapped inside a haunted house that was shifting in time. Through high school I carried a little black book with a velvet cover in which I wrote all sorts of teenage angst poetry and ideas for short stories.

The thing that kicked my butt back into writing was National Novel Writing Month, which I found in 2004. I'm not sure who was more surprised when I finished my first novel that year, me, or the characters I met in the story who finally found a home on a written page.

I hope you'll connect with me here, on my blog, on Twitter, or Facebook and let me know what you think about my work. I'd love to hear from you!
