Shadow People: The Finding by Jo Robinson is a great read! I loved it from beginning to end. The plot is engrossing and the setting is fascinating and unique. The main character, Natalie, is compelling and convincing. I cared about her and her friends, and wanted good things for them. The Nefandus scared the heck out of me and I loved it! Jo Robinson is a great storyteller with a big imagination. You know you're reading a good book when you are dreading the end. If you enjoy Science Fiction with ...more

It has been a while since I’ve read a sci-fi novel which I really enjoyed, mainly because it is hard to create a world and characters believable enough for the book not to become a laughing matter. The author of this one has balanced outlandish creatures, a new, strange, world, and technology which is real enough not to be thrown off by while reading the mind blowing adventures.
She also weaves in metaphysical elements into the story, but in a way that makes sense, because it is in essence about

The author has incorporated so many genre in this story, the only way it can be described is by putting it into a class all of its own - Paranormal / Supernatural / Metaphysical / Science Fiction / Fantasy (PSMSFF).
Far from being a mishmash, it is skilfully written, with a well planned start which feels creepy (like a haunted house is creepy), then a dimensional leap (literally) finds the heroine and TWO muscular men (forget a love issue, it's not going to happen - with them at least), discoveri

Very good! Fantasy/Sci-fi/Paranormal, this one has it all. It was well written with very good character development, and it held my interest all the way through the book. A heroine who turns into a dynamo is always a good thing. I will be looking for more of Jo Robinson’s books.

Shadow People (The Finding) by Jo Robinson is a really well done science fiction/fantasy. It has colorful, imaginative descriptions with complex characters. I was please with the strong female lead, but her strength was derived from the weakness of the men. That was disappointing, but the story line is strong and consistent. Robinson created some really nice worlds through the solidly descriptive language.

I received a free copy of this ebook in an online give-away.

In Shadow People, Natalie (who is extremely wealthy and runs her own deli business) and her husband Gabe (who is also extremely wealthy and loves anything that smacks of paranormal) have bought a new house. Aw, heck, it's a mansion. While puttering around in the basement home theatre, Gabe discovers a hidden room full of weird technology equipment and decides to break down the wall behind to see what strange activities the former owner

Intelligent mythical fantasy

Jo Robinson transports me to worlds that she knows intimately, and that are completely unfamiliar to me. This book moved me to a mythical fantasy world.

I have a hard time getting into fantasy. I have a hard time conjuring and relating to bird beings that aren't birds, horse-like beings with wings, and other mythical creatures that I am not previously acquainted with, especially when they have fanciful names that I can't keep straight. I took notes, and studied them, a

Natalie and Gabe are a young couple who have recently purchased a house. The husband discovers mysterious panels in the basement and decides to remove a wall.

Strange findings, Google searches on the previous owner, parallel universes, unexpected creatures, and I was sucked into the story. It turns out some of the characters aren’t even who they thought they were.

I’ve a confession to make. I do not read science fiction or fantasy, but I gobbled every word till the end. The cast of characters is d

"Shadow People" by Jo Robinson is a remarkable book that begins as intriguing mystery about the purpose of a suddenly discovered room. Natalie and Gabe are fascinated by it but at first they put the discovery down as a product of the excentric nature of the previous owner of the house.
However, the purpose of the room soon becomes clear and our heroes travel to another world and learn of a serious thread to the entire universe.
Science Fiction, dark fantasy and great suspense blend together in an

Shadow People is an exciting adventure into other worlds when a young couple purchase a house and find a hidden room. This strange room is a wormhole to other dimensions. They venture forth and meet alien beings and realize that they are connected to these aliens in ways too hard to comprehend. The couple who go on this adventure, Natalie and Gabe, find themselves and their world in great dangers from evil forces. They must draw power and strength from their past to survive.

I live in South Africa with my three feathered owners. I love all animals and most people. I like to read literary fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and humour most of all, but I've fallen in love with books from most genres at one time or another. I write non-fiction, sci-fi/fantasy and mainstream fiction.
