We Shadows by Thomm Quackenbush
We Shadows is the first book in the Night’s Dream Series.
If I had to sum this up in one sentence, it would be: You have to have quite the imagination to get into this one.
That being said, it was a very interesting book. Most of the time I didn’t know what was going on, so I am glad that it was only the first book. Hopefully the other two will do better to explain what was happening.
After a night of drinking, the main character, Shane, ends up in a crazy world where she doesn’t know if she is real or not. Dead or alive. Fact or Fiction.
She is in an in between state and only certain people can see her.
Mourning the loss of her boyfriend, she never really recovers from that sadness. He is always the first thing on her mind.
While trying to uncover the secrets of Eliot’s death and her own weird occurrences, she runs into some strange people along the way, though they will turn out to be what she really needs in the end.
A witch and a girl with no name.
With new found powers and strange people around her, Shane must try to figure out what is going on.
It all seems to come together at the end, but I suppose we will only really know after reading the last two.
2.5/5 stars. I don’t feel that there was ever really a take off point for this story. It all seemed to go at the same pace. I was confused much of the time, but through all of that, it was still intriguing.
