I'm begin with what I liked and/or loved about Shadowlands. Pretty much everything. I loved the characters, the setting, the plot, it was all great. I'll elaborate. Shadowlands grabbed my attention right from the start. It dived right into the action and I loved that. Kate Brian did a great job with the pacing of the story and with character development, which I thought was pretty good.
I liked just about all the characters. However, my favorite had to be Steven Nell, the serial killer. He was a fantastic character. I think he was so well written that I felt like he could actually be a real life serial killer and I found myself connecting with him much more than I did with Rory. I wanted to know more about him and know more about his side of the story, so I wish there was more on that.
As I previously said, Shadowlands moved at a great pace and I loved everything that was going on. It was definitely suspenseful and while there wasn't a ton of action, it kept me on my toes. I was pretty much terrified. I loved this book so, so much... right up until the ending. What a disappointment. I just didn't see that coming and that's what upset me. Some reviewers said that they expected it, I just didn't see any of the clues that led up to it and I felt like it just ended on a huge cliffhanger.Read more ›
The story centres around Rory Miller, a teenage girl who somehow miraculously survived an attack from a serial killer. The killer - who also happens to be her teacher - have been watching her for months, obsessing over everything she did and said. And now he's determined to finish what he started.
After her brush with death, Rory and her family are sent away to a Juniper Landing (a small vacation town on a remote island) as part of a witness protection program. But what was supposed to be a fresh start quickly turns into yet another nightmare. The town is creepy. Weird and unexplainable things are happening, people act very suspiciously and it all adds up to a very disturbing and deeply bone-chilling picture. Things get even more intense when a local girl disappears without a trace and Rory catches glimpses of someone following her, someone who looks exactly like her former teacher.
Kate Brian evokes Rory's paralysing fear, pain and disorientation quite brilliantly. I couldn't help but to feel thoroughly creeped out - I swear I had goosebumps on my arms half of the time (must be some sort of a record!).Read more ›
Then they have to leave everything and everyone they know at the drop of a hat. I think they get an hour. Maybe less. They have no idea where they are going so they don't know what to pack. They just fill a bag and go. The GPS is programmed and only one person in the FBI knows where they are going. And they are off to safety.
So, Rory. Well she escapes a serial killer so she's strong. You do have to give her that. She does not freak out like I would expect her to or like I think she should. When they move she's the only one that questions things. She's the center of attention which is the exact opposite of what it used to be.Read more ›
