The Shadow by Jill Cooper #bookReview #giveaway @jillybug

The DreamSlayer Banner
shadowAs a paladin champion, it is Natalie’s job to deal with the undead with quick judgment or else run the risk of major casualties.

But when evidence surfaces that some demonires don’t want to feed off humans, Natalie is faced with a moral dilemma that goes against her closest ally and the moral code of the position she holds.

With human foes and demonire allies, Natalie Johnson is about to make a decision she might never be able to take back. Meanwhile a deep-seated anger threatens to destroy the principles she holds most dear.

In the tradition of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Shadow contains mature themes balanced with humor and quirky situations.

Missy’s Review of The Shadow Book 6:

Struggling with the aftermath of being possessed by the necromancer and coming back from the void has left somewhat of a void inside Natalie Johnson. The once bubbly, quirky and loving girl finds herself fighting her own inner demons of grief and anger. While her alter, the slayer, finds herself overflowing with happiness from the alter love of Natalie’s life, Tristan.
Betrayed by the ones she trusted and left alone by her custodian, after he gets an urgent call from the former Boss, Natalie tries to make sense of the demoniers that claim they don’t drink human blood.
With new villains and abilities forming the slayer must travel, for the first time of anyone in her town, to a new town. One that she’s only read about in comics, one that severs the connection she has with the paladin.

The Shadow dives farther into the minds and emotions of both Natalie the paladin and the slayer. While the paladin fights with her feelings of loneliness and duty the slayer finds her world opening up to not only the things the paladin can dream of but now the things that she can imagine. Charles Buckle also gets more attention in this book.
I like that the paladin is becoming a deeper character, not just a teenage girl hopelessly and deeply in love. Now she has a struggle within her making her become a true leader and a role model who is unwilling to compromise what she believes is right even at the cost of friendships. The slayer has also become more independent. No longer having to rely on the things her creator wants her to do and feel.
Between the dream world becoming more real, the public knowledge of what Natalie can do and the humanized demoniers I can’t wait to see where the next book takes Natalie, her friends and her creations.


jillcooperAbout the Author:

I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I’ll say I don’t want to write like everyone else. I don’t want to craft stories you’ve read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you’ve ever read.

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.

If you do, then I’ll have succeeded. If not, I’ll keep trying.
