The 13th by Shadow Stephens #booktour #bookreview

The 13th

Magic in Strega Bluff is like parking meters in other cities. The quaint New England town is home to a large community of witches, warlocks–and many secrets. Jade Hansen loved living there until the untimely death of her parents.

After a much-needed sabbatical, she returns to find the peaceful hamlet turned upside down. A string of murders haunts the city and everyone is potential a target, but even worse, they are all suspects. A family secret puts Jade in the middle and her loved ones in danger. Dodging an evil warlock set on revenge, she is in a race to stop the killer before it’s too late.

About Shadow Stephens

Story telling seems to be a part of my DNA. Since childhood, I made up fantastical characters and brought them to life. Part of it was to escape the turmoils of childhood and some were just for fun. Sitting beside my couch is a constant stack of history, biographies, and compelling fiction, which means I have many overloaded bookshelves. Wouldn’t that be great to have a room just full of shelves? I would love to see a wave of outstanding, self-published authors take over the market. I think it’s important to own your work and take pride in it. Writing several novels and short stories, I know the trials of writing and rejection. Constructive criticism can only make you better. Never doubt yourself.

My review:

I loaded this book on my iPad and opened it up with not much of a clue of what type of story it was but knew it had potential because Shadow wrote it. I have thoroughly enjoyed her two other books I read- Legion of the Bats and Broken Butterflies. Shadows descriptive abilities are something I truly envy. She makes the words almost jump out of the page and you can swear you are immersed in the book. You can almost smell the incense burning in Jade’s shop or feel the air turn cold when her evil nemesis turn up. I was quickly wrapped up in the love stories, battles and the history of the characters and I really hope there is more to their story. I am really curious what becomes of Jades life now that she has fulfilled her destiny. Another great story by Shadow. A definite must read.
