Walking with Shadows Review

Walking with ShadowsWalking with Shadows

by


Giselle regains consciousness and is horrified to discover she has been asleep for nine weeks. She was already aware that she was carrying a very special baby who was to be the first of a new race of vampires, but she is shocked to find how her pregnancy is progressing. Around her, the underworld is in turmoil. Vampires battle with creatures of darkness and with other vampires, and few are entirely what they seem. More confusing still, those who appeared to be totally evil may have a streak of goodness in them, and those who appeared to be Giselle’s friends may have a darker purpose of their own. Almost anyone, it seems, can be changed and turned, except possibly Ysoriel the Archangel and the goddess Lilith, and Giselle cannot be sure that even they are interested only in her welfare.

The only certainty is that it will all become very much worse before it begins to get better – if anything ever gets better for Giselle.


My Thoughts
This storyline has potential. It's definitely nothing that I've ever read or heard of before. There is a lot going on here. Giselle has woken up and she is way more pregnant then she expected to be. Things are progressing faster than usual. The baby she is carrying is special. Alex is plotting against Giselle. But there are other forces that are plotting against Giselle and Alex. 

I have to say that this book was hard for me to read. It wasn't concise. The story line wasn't really developed. Meaning, that there weren't a lot of details where there should have been. With so much going on in this book, I feel that there really should have been more explanation. Also, Giselle and Alex seemed like petulant children. It just wasn't my cup of tea, so to speak. I think other people might love it but it isn't a book that I would remember.

  2. I haven't read this one yet. I did read the first one and really liked it. When I have some time I am going to take a look at this one so I can see for myself.:)

  3. Sometimes when an author tries to create mystery or interest by revealing a little at a time, it just comes off as confusing. It is also tough to know just how far to push a character's personality or actions over the line from flawed to just annoying. There's only so far each of us can compensate before we find that we just aren't in love with a book. Sorry for more than my two cents worth. :D

    Thanks for sharing your review!

  4. that's to bad. It sounds like there is a lot going on...I've found that sometimes when an author has a lot of hidden mystery and tries to unfold it little by little it gets all confusing. I keep reading but don't get half the story line. It's to bad because it does sound different from what I've read lately. 2 bottles of awesome sauce...not to good..lol

  5. Thank you so much for your honest review. I think maybe the first book has to b read before the second. Everything that happens in book two is a repercussion of book one! :)
