Blog Tour ~ Shadow of Bats by Shadow Stephens ~ Review
Legion of Bats by Shadow Stephens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to review through Promotional Book Tours
Genre: ADULT paranormal
Description from Goodreads: Legion of Bats—They were all different, but together they changed the world
In a world governed by fear and corruption, a baby, Zoe Masterson, was born and immediately targeted for death. Hidden away in the rural West Virginia town of Tanner, Zoe grows up feeling like an outsider—always just a little bit different from the people around her. As bad becomes worse, she is arrested for arson and a murder she didn’t commit. She is taken to a mental hospital, where she discovers nothings is as it seems and her destiny awaits her. Zoe quickly becomes caught in a web of strange abilities, politics, murder, discrimination, and forbidden love. Will she be able to bring a government to its knees in order to have the one person who matters most to her?
My thoughts: Shadow Stephens takes you into a whole new world of paranormals. Forget about vampires and werewolves. She introduces us to Endowed, Assassins, trackers, and Guardians. The paranormal world she created has it's own issues and conflict.
Zoe is in her twenties and is very misunderstood. If anything goes wrong in her small town, she will ultimately get the blame. She is different and different isn't good in her neighborhood.
She is taken, yes, by force, one evening to a "mental hospital" after her neighbor's house catches on fire. There she learns that she is far from normal. She is one of the endowed. She has psychic abilities that she must learn to control.
She is introduced to a world that she didn't know existed. She makes many friends and enemies. She also learns a secret about her past that changes everything.
The book is a very quick and fun read. I whipped through it and had a hard time putting it down. This book has action and romance. It is for an adult audience. There are sexual situations that you don't want your kids to read.
