Shadow Slayer Book Review



Shadows will do anything to become human. You see their influence everyday. You say things you don’t mean or do things that aren’t like you. You look, different. Friends you’ve known forever suddenly never call.

As a freshman, Roxie just wants to fit in which is impossible because she barely runs into her friends at her huge high school. Adrianne’s disappearance and Hayden’s attention rock Roxie’s world. But nothing rocks it like the most gorgeous guy at school, Drew. And nothing is more important to Roxie than astral projecting back to Planet Popular to solve the mystery of the map. But that changes when Drew invites Roxie to Homecoming. Hayden warns her that something’s wrong. Why would a guy like Drew like Roxie anyway? Drew must want something. Hayden’s right. Drew is...different. Planet Popular was just the beginning. Part of a bigger world, the Shadow World. There’s a war brewing between the world of humans and the world of shadows. When the shadow invasion begins at Roxie’s high school, she’ll not only fight for her life but the lives of her family and friends, when she discovers she’s the Shadow Slayer, the one human who can save Earth from the shadow onslaught. But, Roxie can’t even kill a spider. Oh yeah, there’s an evil English teacher, an enchanted play, a sword of Sandonian steel, a homecoming of horrors, and seven magic words too.

My Review

I received a free copy of this novel for my honest review.  Shadow Slayer is book two of the Shadow series.  The story opens on Roxie’s first day of High School, reminiscing about Hayden and their last few days before school starts.  You can tell by the memory that she’s hoping they will get back to how they were on “Planet Popular”.  She loses interest when she meets sixteen year old Drew, “a perfect ten”.  Drew then asks her to the homecoming dance and she excitedly accepts.  Hayden implies that Drew isn’t what he seems, which adds to the mystery of the entire story.  I loved the way this story was written, you can tell that Roxie has matured a bit since book one.  This was a action filled entertaining novel, I can’t wait to see what happens next!
 
About the Author

I love writing about enchanted road trips, shadow worlds, and alien romance while eating lots of popcorn. I live with my hubby and Oso, our aussie shepherd, in our tree house on the central California coast. After twenty-plus years as a freelance graphic designer/animator with clients including E! Entertainment Television and The Los Angeles Times, I crossed over into the world of publishing non-fiction and followed my heart to the world of fiction.
