[[ E-pub ]] ☂ Sarahs Shadows (Shadows and Light #1) ⇪ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free
I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway I have to be honest I didn t hold high expectations for this book when I won it, figuring it would be your typical afterlife, go into the light kind of thing I was very pleasantly surprised to find that wasn t the case The author, Debra Robinson, was able to tap into the mind of a teenage girl, with all its emotions, angst, and the like, without turning it into a parody of teenagedom, as some authors are wont to do The ending was great, with a pretty unexpected twist.I was surprised by some of the imagery in this book It s quite dark in some places enough to almost make me uncomfortable I loved that the author didn t shy away from darker bits, despite being a YA book.All in all, I really enjoyed this book and am really looking forward to the next one.

I sat down to start the book and promptly read it all in one sitting It was a serious, older YA story with an overall energetic, hurried, deadline feel that is constant the whole way through the book The story jumps right into the action, and never seems to let up.The characters are well developed and felt consistent I thought Jason felt a little one dimensional with his constant hitting on Sarah, but it wasn t out of place I adored Maya, even if her zoo was horribly disturbing I loved how her and Sarah bond so strongly It helps to reduce the insta love feel between Sarah and Charlie, and adds a lightness to some of the serious parts.The ending is both happy and sad and ties up the story nicely while still leaving room for future books The story stands alone well, but does have a series feel.Overall, it was a great story Very emotional and powerful It showcases an afterlife without making religion a huge part, which is something very tricky and hard to do I think the book could be popular and hope lots of readers find and read it. I received this book in exchange for an honest review LoP or Lovers of Paranormal The premises is unique It taken place in the afterlife of the heroine Sarah She s trying to find her father who is lost in the shadowland I liked the map in the beginning of the novel I had to refer to it once to get a feel of the place I found it quite useful.I wish there was character development, which is hard to do since this story takes place in a short period of time Because of this, I felt the story was a bit disjointed in the shadowland It had a lot of action, but little character development I thought the love story was brought up too abruptly The most interesting character for me is Charlie I wish I could see into his psyche because I think his character was interesting I enjoyed reading Azeel s passages The ending caught me by surprise and I had a chuckle at everyone s reaction. A wonderful book that I could not put down Great story about life, death and the afterlife The war between good and evil and how grief and regret can hinder a person Such a wonderful inventive story, Shadowland was so detailed it was easy to picture The birds with teeth were creepy The scene with the demons grabbing the woman was frightening and graphic And one I don t think I will forget I love the way the author writes I am looking forward to another story like this Well developed characters, inventive visuals, great plot line I received this book in a goodreads giveaway I was not paid for my review in any way, and the opinions are my own
