01-07: The synopsis for 'Shadowed,' first in a new series by author Michelle Areaux, boasts that "fans of Twilight, The Guardian Series, and the Marked Saga will instantly fall in love with this new paranormal series." What it doesn't tell you, is that in spots it's practically just the same story with a few tweaks to details.

Henley, our main

This book is about Henley a sixteen year old girl who is so used to be an outcast, she only had one friend and that was Amy. But then Cohen moved in across from her home and she couldn't help but to feel connected to him even if it meant putting her own life in danger.
The book begin with a lot of similarities to twilight, in face the author mentions twilight in the first few pages. This made me want to put the book down, I didn't wanted to read a book like twilight but instead I decided to give
I know I always say that I love whatever type of book I have read but it's true and I love Paranormal romances. I did the blitz on Shadowed and decided it sounded so good and so intriguing that when Michelle offered me a copy, I could not turn it down!

Now, it turned out that it wasn't exactly what I expected with some characters I didn't care for but overall, I enjoyed the read. I cannot say which characters I didn't care for as that would be a spoiler but it kept me entertained throughout. It

I hate having to give less than positive reviews, but this one was really difficult. I was reading an unedited ARC, so some things may get resolved before release.

The bad: Tense flips back and forth constantly and is very distracting. Dialogue is stilted and unnatural. There's a lot of storytelling that isn't actually telling anything. There are parts that are frighteningly close to Twilight for my comfort. Some find it romantic, but a boy / man who has been around for 50+ years falling for a 16

Paranormal romances are my catnip, I freaking love them, doesn't matter what they are about, I love reading ALL of the stories. Shadowed is a bit different. It was entertaining, so I definitely recommend checking it out, but I probably won't be checking out the 2nd book in the series because it was just a bit too weird for me. I wasn't completely bought in by the story and characters and what makes Cohen's family a bit different.

Overall, if you are looking for a quick YA paranormal read with a

The small town of Edison, Washington, will never be the same after the new neighbors move in.

What if the government made a mistake years ago and are trying to cover it up by experimenting and killing innocent people?

To my mom, I should dress more like the popular kids at school. But to me, well, I have already accepted my fate as the school loser. I just wish she would come to terms with the idea, too.

Henley couldn’t wait to leave Edison. She and her best friend, Amy, have always been

Wow, I did get into this story about Henley and Cohen. Henley has always lived in a small town. Cohen and his family just moved in and are the talk of the town. Henley has always been an outsider in her town, with only one friend. Cohen has never stayed in one place long and never really talked to others. They have something going on from the first moment their eyes meet. Can they come together? Will Cohen stay away to keep her safe? Who really are the Cohen family?

After reading this book I had to take a little time to compose myself and get my thoughts clear in my head before I put them in a review.
Wow this book was amazingly written. Once I started I couldn’t put it down till I was finished. This book has twists and turns you don’t know what’s happening. will they all get there happily ever after or will it all go wrong. To find out what happens go buy the book. You won’t be disappointed I wasn’t.
