#OBBigBang Book Review - Love of Shadows by Zoe Brooks

Love of ShadowsLove of Shadows by Zoe Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Most aspects of this book was excellent. The characters were well-developed. By page 10, the reader is able to feel an emotional connection to thee characters which I think is very important for any book and writer.

It was even refreshing to see commas and punctuation marks in order. However, the one thing I could not get by was the fact that if you haven't read the first book, you're going to feel like you've missed out on A LOT.

While I do understand the need of a series, perhaps the author should include an introduction in this book or a recap if you will so readers who stumble on this book before the first one won't be lost.

Would I recommend this read? Sure, but they must have read Book One first.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4/5
Editing: 4/5
Formatting: 4/5
Pacing: 3.5/5
Offensive content?: Adult theme suited for ages 17 and above.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
