Book Reviewed by Julie on

The aptly-named ‘Shadowzone’ is the first in a series by American author, Simon Rose. We see the action primarily through the eyes of Charlie, a girl who lives on a dystopic earth and Ben, a boy who inhabits a far more pleasant place, environmentally akin to the world we know.

As we join the story, the two parallel universes look destined to merge as the barrier between them becomes weakened. The framework for the plot is conveniently explained

If the government found another world, a parallel Earth, would you support them in exploring all they could about it without question? We would probably have TONS of questions!!

This was mostly plot/action oriented and had to do with parallel worlds. It was an entertaining read and it felt a bit familiar in that it had many other plot twists/aspects from other YA post-apocalyptic SF books. That being said, it was an entertaining read and great for people who are looking for something in those genres.

This is the first book of a series by one of my favorite authors. Although at first, I found the book a little slow to get into, once the first couple of chapters were read, I found the usual exciting story that I could not put down until it was finished. The ending left me ready to read the next book titled “Into the Web.”
