Review: Lost in Shadow (Shadow Walkers #1)

lost in shadow.jpgI DID IT! I read 52 books for my Goodreads goal for 2016! Yay me!

However, I’m sorry I reached the goal on this garbage. I must have bought this book for 99 cents or maybe for free for my Kindle, because if I spent more than that, I overpaid.

OK, it wasn’t THAT bad. I finished it, so there’s something to be said for that. But there were some truly cringe-worthy moments in this book; more than I can remember. It started off ok – Emily (a boring name for a boring, flat character) is able to see some ancient Scottish lord who is now a Shadow Walker, which is the sworn enemy of the Day Walker. This is unusual because normally humans can’t see Walkers, EXCEPT if the Walkers decide to be seen. I’m not sure how this works, but Colin, the aforementioned Lord, employs this tactic a few times throughout the novel when it’s convenient.

So girl sees Scottish rich old dead Walker guy, girl falls for Scottish rich old dead Walker guy, Scottish rich old dead Walker guy hasn’t loved anyone in centuries but falls for this boring-ass American with zero personality. They have a completely one-dimensional (read: sexual) relationship and then — spoiler alert because you’re not going to read this crap, are you? — they both almost die but end up becoming immortal together and married and have twins.

There’s some semblance of a plot, but it’s squeezed in between agonizingly bad sex scenes (many of the cringe-worthy moments stem from these), and honestly it’s so convoluted I don’t really remember anything major other than Shadow Walkers vs. Day Walkers. What ev’s.

Apparently, there are several more novels worth of this, but I’ma pass on those. I suggest you do the same! Sometimes with free Kindle books, you get what you pay for!
