Book Description

New version as of September 2013!

Sycamore Heights, where everyone keeps a deadly secret.

On the surface Katrina Harvey is like any other 17-year-old about to start their senior year but not everything is quite as it seems. After being violently attacked she loses her memory and now has no idea who is friend, foe, or - most importantly - that she happens to be a 235-year-old vampire.

Now Katrina is being stalked by someone, or something, who doesn't want her to remember her past and will do anything to keep it that way.

Sixteen-year-old Suzanne Harvey was left distraught when her older sister, Katrina, disappeared two centuries ago. Suzanne was turned into a werewolf soon afterwards and ever since that day she has been focused on finding her sister, with a twist of fate leading her to Sycamore Heights, the same town that Katrina now lives. Now, as Suzanne gets closer to revealing secrets from the past, someone from the present doesn't like what she could unearth, even if that means they drive her to the brink of insanity to keep the secrets forgotten.

Masquerade, book two of the In The Shadows series is coming soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires and werewolves and sisters, oh my! June 26, 2012
By Michael
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A friend recommended this book to me as I wanted to read something that had a paranormal theme, but without all the romance that those novels are known for. I'd say this book delivered on what I wanted for the most part. It wasn't too heavy going, it was partly based in the 90s (a decade I grew up in and feel nostalgic about), and there was enough action to keep me turning the pages.

On the other hand, by the time I'd finished it I was left feeling that there were still some loose ends and I wasn't sure about the cliffhanger ending. I'm glad it says it's Book One as that implies there's more to come, and I'll definitely be checking out the next book whenever its released so I can find out what happens next to the two main characters. All in all though, it was a bit of fun escapism for a few hours and that's the main thing for me

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun story, but it doesn't end with this book. November 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this story, but keep in mind that it is the first in a series so it does end with questions and a cliffhanger or two.

Book One focuses mostly on character development with primary emphasis on the main character, Katrina, who suffers from amnesia. Although she has no idea who she was before, her past is gradually revealed through dreams and flashbacks (but I won't say any more about those, too many spoilers). Hostile supernatural enemies, unknown past, a lost sister that haunts her dreams, what more could you want?

If you like reading about young people, vampires, werewolves and mystery, you'll probably enjoy this book.

Again, this is the first in a series and is not a standalone book, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great first installment January 30, 2015
By Mandy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate to admit that I picked this one up as a kindle freebie back in 2012 and it’s been sitting on my kindle since then. Katrina is attacked leaving her with no memories of her past and without an identity. Deciding it’s time to figure out her past she agrees to hypnosis therapy which reveals that fragments of her past which she starts to remember. Someone doesn’t want her to remember her past and is sending her notes and items to keep her in the dark. While Katrina doesn’t remember her past it’s going to catch up with her one way or another.

While Katrina may not know her past her sister and friends have been searching for her for a long time. Having found her with her memories missing they are forced to wait but deep down it’s killing her sister Suzanne just watching her sister not know who she is. However Katrina isn’t the only one with someone stalking her. Will the sisters be united? Will the ones hunting them get them? What’s really going on with Marcus?

I liked the characters we have multiple points of view Katrina, Emily and Suzanne. Each girl has a little different of a background with their own tragic story and how they came to be. I like the girls and found that I was able to connect with them more than the guys. I don’t think I can pick my favorite just yet because each one has a quality or personality I liked.

I wasn’t sure about this one the cover is what hooked me in. I think the author has created an interesting paranormal concept that is set in the late 90’s which I loved. I like the way that she mixed the humans in with the vampires and werewolves they worked together instead of fighting each other. The world building wasn’t bad I could have used more but it was still a good amount and the storyline flows along smoothly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok Book but... November 25, 2012
By sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was ok. The only complaint was everything was left up in the air. I am not fond of books that leave so many unanswered questions. The book spent alot of time, sometimes confusing, to get you to know everyone then leaves you hanging.

I’m not too fond of books that are written in two separate time perspectives. It’s like reading two books at the same time and getting confused easily. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice concept, but bad execution
Get an editor, please! It is frustrating reading a book as poorly written as this. 1. Get a dictionary. 2. Use it.
