Teenagers lead interesting lives as their parents destroy friendships, bicker, and act strange. There are murders and attacks, always after midnight in the neighborhood. What is going on? Ends on a huge cliffhanger. Fun read.

When a new girl moves into their town she makes a friend but also she’s competition. Together despite parental warni ...more

I have to start with the bad. It was too short. I was very in to it and getting excited and then it ended. I was like what??? And now I wait.
I am excited to to further explore the furniture I'd shadow hills. I am on pins and needles waiting. Wonderful job Willow Rose ...more
It was a page turner alright. Maybe because the chapters were short? It moved at a fast enough pace that I wasn't in any ...more
This book was a fast paced novel. I had devoured it within hours (I sat in one spot for a couple of hours and immediately wanted to dig into the next novel).
This is not the typical paranormal mystery romance that we are all familiar with. Yes it is evident that the families in this neighborhood are clearly not human, except for our protagonist, Robyn and her three friends: Jayden (her best friend), Amy (the stress baker) and Jazmine (the new gi ...more
"Flesh and Blood is the first book in a fun and frightening series of romantic paranormal mysteries. If you like terrifying thrills, flesh and blood characters, and vampires without the sparkle, then you’ll love Willow Rose’s tale of suburban terror.
Buy Flesh and Blood to discover a dynamic series that puts the bite back into vampire lore today."
In this I think the book fails. There is not terror and so far the "bite" is more of a nibble. This is very short and make no mistake, ...more
The characters were not all fully developed, which is understandable because this is after all a series of some 12 books. We learned a little bit more about Robyn and Jayden, little about Amy and Jazmine. I hope we'll see more of the latter two characters and learn what makes them tick.
I must confess that although I'm going to start ...more
Basically, there are vampire families in Shadow Hills, and the parents "turn" their children when they reach their 18th birthday. Problem is, mommy and daddy ...more
While I feel the story-line did jump around a lot from places, timeline, an ...more
The story follows Robyn and her love interest and two other girlfriends as they discover a murder and a attempted murder, discovering in the process a secret about her family.
I felt the characters needed to be a touch younger as they did not act like 16 - 18 year olds, more like 10.....
The POV was all over the place we had it from the victims from the characters, i couldn't get a gr ...more
If you're a fan like me of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries, Willow Rose, the Queen of Scream has a new series that will be right up your street!
The Vampires of Shadow Hills series of which Flash and Blood is Book 1, tells of young Robyn, who is forcibly separated from her long-term sweetheart Jaden, by her parents who may or may not be involved in the mysterious feud that has split the two families apart in a Capulet and Montague-style hostility that se ...more
Willow Rose has jumped off into a new series (The Vampires of Shadow Hills) in a spectacular fashion. While a teen book it should hold the attention of all paranormal fans. Robyn is part of a vampire family living in a neighborhood of all kinds of paranormals and trying to figure out why her mom hates her boyfriend's family. Plenty of mystery and soul searching for Robyn and her friends. My only complaint is that the POV of the characters is not clear from ...more
Yes, I enjoyed it. Was i overjoyed to be reading it? Nah, not really.
First the bad: so stinkin slow. So predictable. Very rated G. No real action. I described it to my sister as Stepford Wives with vampires. At least I think ita vampires. Everyone keeps talking about seeing a wolf. I don't know for sure. The most frustrating thing for me was the constant change from 3rd person point of view to first person. Pick one!
The good: easy to read. No real obvious grammatical er ...more
I received this book free from one of the book sites. I do not remember which one! This is my honest review.
I don't care how old you are, this is a good book.
Strange things are happening in Shadow Hills. Best friends turning on each other, people sneaking out of their homes at night and people entering "abandoned houses...and that's the adults!
Follow 3 teens as they try to understand what's going on in their neighborhood & their own homes!
This is not a stand alone book, but the ...more
I found this book to be interesting in the relationship between Robyn, her mother, and her brother. (Warning: brother is very clearly the favored child). There were some scary parts in this book and some parts weren't explained to ...more
Growing up in a small community everyone knows everybody. Both have teasing older brothers and both start acting weird or weirder than normal.

Strange attacks start to happen. Amy I can relate to. Cooking when stressed. ...more
