Book Review: Shadows in Darkness by Jillian Ashe

Amazon / Goodreads
Pages: 144
Price: $2.99


 Blurb:

Katerina Anderson woke up from cryostasis alone, and to a completely different Earth...
The year is 2512. Almost five hundred years later than the experiment was supposed to end. My twin brother Kris is the only family I have left, and he’s missing. Everything about him is clouded in mystery and warnings of danger, but I have to keep looking.

So I booked passage on a spaceship, the Wolfegang. Captain Chase Wolfe and his crew have agreed to take me to his last known location, Anarkia. I know trouble is waiting for me. Not only does the government think I'm a criminal, but I discovered that curing my cancer wasn't the only aim of the doctor’s experiment, and Kris is the only person who might have answers. I’ll do whatever I need to if it means finding him. 



Review:

Have you ever connected with a character so strongly, that when you read about them it can calm you down? 

Well I have, in fact when this happens I tend to latch on to these characters. Put them on my shelf and reread the books later when I need a shoulder. I know, I know, you might be thinking I am crazy right now. But I am not, these are the feelings you can get when a author does an amazing job making the character feel like they are real. Reason why I am bringing this up, is because this is how I feel about Ashe's characters. 

I feel like I could call them friends, even though I have only read two of these books. This book follows My Delicate Destruction. As a second book, this story is perfect. It gives you more details about the main character, along with learning more of the plot and the other characters as well. 

Would it be wrong if I made Jillian Ashe one of my favorite authors? Because she is heading there fast.


About the Author:
  


My readers are what's important to me. Yes, I write for myself and the enjoyment of it, but I adore when a reader actually has a great time reading a story I slaved over. I don't write any particular genre, but I do stick to kick-ass female characters. I love writing about all types of differently strong women. My debut series is Young Adult Science Fiction. The first novella is free to see if you enjoy what I write.

I'm very involved with my fandoms, and love all things geeky and nerdy. I love connecting with my readers, so if you'd like to contact me just head over to my website :)
