It starts out in familiar territory: a dark brooding hero and a girl with a sad, sad past are inexplicably drawn to each other. Said romantic hero has a secret and must keep the girl at arms length~ just to keep her safe. It's then interspersed with glimpses into someone's past. Now, between the present day troubles and the past ones, I'd much rather have reading about the latter, Madeleine and her love, especially since Blake and Winter's story was old hat.

THANKFULLY, things took an interesting turn when the cats showed up. Picture this:


Then throw in some of what made Soul Screamers (books three and four) special, when the Other World was explored. It was both these elements that pulled Winter Shadow out from what would have been "been there and done that" territory into something a little better and more interesting.

Initially there's a good deal that's predictable in it, with the story only really becoming its own sometime after the first two-thirds. Not bad.

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko Hmm so it seems a lot like a Twilight theme to it?
