Loved it!!

I one-clicked Shadow Town the day it released because Robyn Jones...she knows how to write a story. She creates these vivid worlds - and I don't mean fantasy worlds - but the colorful every day world that you become fully immersed in. She imparts creative stories with new spins within the paranormal genre. She creates charismatic and quirky characters. And her words...oh, I love how she draws images with her words.

Maggie Lane is one tough chick. She's brave and fierce, and, as she's di

****The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Maggie is your typical nineteen year old girl, she manages the uber exclusive Pearl Estates that's owned by her alcoholic, abusive father and filled with people that she refers to as Shadows. There are a few regular humans who live in the community that she helps out financially by working in a skeevy bar because she refuses to touch her inheritance. Her life is turned upside down when a new Shadow moves in, then a waitr

The Good

This one has a bit of all the things that I enjoy: snark, action, a little mystery, a MoBad heroine, and some spice. MoBad is another of my made up PG words, but you get the point. Maggie is strong and naive at the same time. She's been through so much in her past. It makes her gritty, but in some areas she's never been able to let her walls down so she's truly naive to what life should be like for someone her age. I gr

Maggie Lane is a manager for an upmarket community, Her father who is an abusive prick owns the community and that is the only connection to him that she wants, but she has a problem, Maggie sees dark shadows surrounding certain people and slowly the amount of families in her community are packing up and moving and the shadows are moving in.

Robyn Jones is an automatic author for me, what ever she churn out of her amazing mind, I will be fan girling all over it, although different to her series T

Well, Maggie surprised me. I thought she would be a tough girl, but she ended up being naïve and unprotected against the people who want to control her life. At first I frowned reading how easy some people could control her, but as the story moved on and I learned more about her past, I knew why she was like that. She pretends to have a tough shell, but turns out she is a soft existence, craving for love. She is a very interesting character and I found myself connecting with her.

I'm the mom of two hardcore boys. My oldest trained me to be matter-of-fact, no frills. My youngest wants the whole singsongy sweet package. Thank goodness for reading and writing because they are my sanity makers. I know life is all about the journey, that's why I like my fiction to be all about the destination. I want to be taken somewhere not here when I read, same goes with the stories I ...more
