    This book is so interesting and unique, and although it has been a while since I read it, the story remains quite clear inside my head It wasthan I expected In general, I enjoy paranormal plots but this one isthan just that, it starts being almost a mystery contemporary book and advances to become a Fantasy book I think it handles that in a unique way, you can appreciate a unique mix between reality and fantasy 4 5 You can findfo my reviews on my blog A Book A Thou This book is so interesting and unique, and although it has been a while since I read it, the story remains quite clear inside my head It wasthan I expected In general, I enjoy paranormal plots but this one isthan just that, it starts being almost a mystery contemporary book and advances to become a Fantasy book I think it handles that in a unique way, you can appreciate a unique mix between reality and fantasy 4 5 You can findfo my reviews on my blog A Book A Thought.Much of the story takes place in England which I LOVE, and because of this, it manages to have a perfect setting that makes the plot atmospheric and engaging I always like to describe this sensation like when you watch a TV show , such as Supernatural or The Vampire Diaries, or those kinds of shows that are atmospheric and very addictive.The way in which the author manages the world building is also very unique, I don t want to go into details because I think it s something that will surprise you once you read it yourself, but basically it s about a fantastic creation within our own world, which I adored and I think is very difficult to do If you ve ever read Heart of Mist by Helen Schewerer, I think it s something very similar happening in both books regarding the surprising and changing construction of the world.The characters are quite interesting to follow, I confess that none surprises me 100%, but I did commit to their searches and achievements Camilla s a girl who s obviously broken inside and we follow her through many struggles and internal battles, it s very interesting because, in the beginning, you don t really know what happens to her and what are the reasons behind her so impulsive acts, but when you knowabout her story and things begin to reveal, everything becomes clearer and you can get to put yourself in her place She proves to be a very strong girl in the end, and I think she grows a lot, which I love to see happen Then we have Leo, an incredibly well created character, I loved when he appears on the scene, I think he contributes a lot to the plot, he s determined and although he has his failures, I feel he feels very real and relatable In the end, I think that all the characters contribute, in some way, even when they re very little time on the scene has an impact in the story, and that s perfect.The writing style is SO good, it s not complex at all but at the same time you can t stop reading, it s really addictive and I can see the great talent of the author when it comes to describing, from places to characters, I adored how she can also give you funny scenes and very dramatic scenes and never ceases to be interestingI would highly recommend this book to those who find it difficult to delve into fantasy since it s a very subtle touch in this first book, of what I think will be a series, perhaps I also recommend it if you want a quick and addictive reading that will keep you on the edge of your seat, intrigued and wanting to know what will happen next It s SO atmospheric, you ll really feel that you re seeing everything with your own eyes, so I hope you decide to give it a chance First Thoughts 06 25 2019I LOVED it what a wonderful surpriseA quick but incredibly complete reading, fantasy unites with reality in a unique way

    If Shadow Soul has taught me anything, it s that one should never give up Whatever your circumstances, whatever your dream, however high you ve stumbled rise and rise again There is always light at the end of even the darkest of tunnels.Follow the Light M.J BavisAnd that is exactly what your book is teaching us readers, M.J A big warm thank you for that Let me start off by saying that I didn

whatever your dream, however high you ve stumbled rise and rise again There is always light at the end of even the darkest of tunnels.Follow the Light M.J BavisAnd that is exactly what your book is teaching us readers, M.J A big warm thank you for that Let me start off by saying that I didn t know at all what to expect when I decided to give this book a try The blurb was interesting enough but didn t give much away and it had too few reviews to really let in on the plot In the end, I decided to just see how it goes And I m telling you folks, it turned out to be A W E S O M E Camilla wants to forget She wants to forget her identity, her home and her past because her guilt and loss are too much to bear Physical pain is a welcome punishment for the deeds of her past and that is why Camilla ends up in hospital onthan one occasion, battered and bruised, and hurting It s easy to put yourself into dangerous situations when you have nothing to loose and that s exactly what Camilla does Moving, or better said running, from place to place with no friends, no attachments and no purpose, she got so used to fleeing the demons that shadow her every move, that she forgot how to live.Until kindness is given her, with understanding and no questions, by a caretaker in the hospital Camilla last awakens in Everyone there pities the girls who was brought in practically in a coma The battered girl who seems to know nothing other than her own name And in the wake of that kindness, Camilla finally starts to settle down and learn to live within her own skin She makes friends and starts to really live Or that s how it would appear at least A girl with a false name living a shadow of the life she could really have For what is life after all, if you build it on a lie And what future can you have when you hide from who you really are Just as things seem to settle down for Camilla, the past comes crashing down on her, in the form of an elusive young man who simply doesn t want to back down He will bring out all of Camilla s demons and present her with a choice she would have never dreamed of making A path she would have never hoped to take A future she firmly believes she doesn t deserve The greatest battles aren t fought with fists and swords The deciding battle, the one holding the key to your fate, is fought in the mind Leo dares her to face her demonsStop being a chicken KalikaBut will Camilla have the courage to do it When we take a too big fall and sink too deep, the strength to rise back up and carry on may be a little out of reach And that s exactly what Camilla faces When she is offered that new noble purpose and call to duty will she be able to step up to the challenge, or is the pain of her past too huge to face To find her path, she must first find herself.Both Camilla, as well as the other characters are solid Flawed and easily identifiable with Camilla is fully broken and her path towards mending herself is a touching testimony of courage Leo on the other handOhhh My I just love Leo He s the perfect hero to root for Not that he s perfect cause he isn t He s just cool and awesome and determined and well yeah, you get the idea The writing style is beautiful Clean and naturally flowing, it makes reading a pleasure And the plot it will have you hooked already by the time you hit the quarter mark You ll find yourself trying your best to fit the pieces of the puzzle together and find out what in the world can be so bad that a girl would want to put herself in a coma to forget You ll get little clues dropped on the way, just like a little trail of breadcrumbs that you can t help but want to follow Let me not forget the bromance If bromance is how you call the awesome relationship between friends of both sexes The bromance rocks in this book The witty banter, the sarcasm, the humor and yes, even the love You will absolutely love itSo you don t hate me Leo stopped across the road from my house No, you doughnut, though you do rub me the wrong way In the end, cause I already kept you too long D this book will give you heartbreak and determination, humor and love, mystery and action as well as a little reminder to never give up and always, always, always get back up try again This paranormal fantasy YA is one of those page turners that you ll find yourself cradling in the wee hours of the morning when your eyes are already heavy and still, you just don t wanna stop reading because A new debut by an author to watch for, Shadow Soul reads like a charm You have got to try this people You may just like it quite as much as I did Happy reading

    I had the honor of beta reading this book, and doing so was an absolute pleasure To quote myself of a few months ago in an email to the author Okay I meant to knock out a couple chapters and then get some real life work done, but instead I did ZERO homework and finished your manuscript because as soon as the climax really kicked off I could Not Stop Reading To start with, the writing in this thing is beautiful, crisp, and clean Kindle Unlimited books can be hit or miss when it comes t I had the honor of beta reading this book, and doing so was an absolute pleasure To quote myself of a few months ago in an email to the author Okay I meant to knock out a couple chapters and then get some real life work done, but instead I did ZERO homework and finished your manuscript because as soon as the climax really kicked off I could Not Stop Reading To start with, the writing in this thing is beautiful, crisp, and clean Kindle Unlimited books can be hit or miss when it comes to conventions, but this delightful read is so professional you ll forget it s self published Beyond that, the plot itself is tidy and easy to follow You will find yourself scrambling to turn the page to learn what happens next I wouldn t know precisely how to classify this book YA Fantasy Kinda paranormally dunno but suffice it to say that the author has an incredible capacity for world building, and she s done so within the context of our world, which is especially difficult You will become immersed in this new world, desperate to put all the pieces together and learnas the characters drop breadcrumbs to the truth The characters are rich and believable and incredibly sympathetic The heroine is broken and down on her luck, but she has incredible courage and her wry sarcasm is especially delightful to read Watching her slowly overcome her past and re emerge into the world was amazing The hero I don t wanna spoil anything, but he charmed me into submission by the end of the book Beyond the MCs, though, the secondary cast was incredibly well developed There isn t a single two dimensional character in this book Everyone you meet feels real The bottom line in this book you will find action, adventure, heartbreak, love, and humor It is a page turner from the start, and will leave you cravingof the characters, of the world, and of this writer s style Highly recommend

    I was fortunate enough to be a beta reader for this story It was around Thanksgiving when I got to read Shadow Soul and I recall sitting at the kitchen counter with my nose in the pages while everyone was conversing and meal prepping I m a bookworm, so I got away with it From start to finish I read Shadow Soul in less than 24 hours It truly was a book I could not put down The story pulls you in with curiosity and it keeps you reading with its enchantment This is a UK book and I fell in l I was fortunate enough to be a beta reader for this story It was around Thanksgiving when I got to read Shadow Soul and I recall sitting at the kitchen counter with my nose in the pages while everyone was conversing and meal prepping I m a bookworm, so I got away with it From start to finish I read Shadow Soul in less than 24 hours It truly was a book I could not put down The story pulls you in with curiosity and it keeps you reading with its enchantment This is a UK book and I fell in love with the terminology that is a different form of English than here in the US Sometimes I did have to pull up Google to understand the difference, but that didn t take away from the story.This is manuscript I fell in love with as a beta reader, and I am proud of M.J Bavis and wish her much success in her publication of Shadow Soul

    From the first second I started to read Shadow Soul I was attracted to its energy My tentative look at the sample was soon translated into downloading the whole I am embarrassed at how long it took me to read in the end About 7 days instead of the 1 day it would have taken 282 pages if I had not been distracted with annoying real life The story was gripping all the way through I got a bit impatient in the middle as I wanted to know Camilla s back story and what Leo was up to and I wasn From the first second I started to read Shadow Soul I was attracted to its energy My tentative look at the sample was soon translated into downloading the whole I am embarrassed at how long it took me to read in the end About 7 days instead of the 1 day it would have taken 282 pages if I had not been distracted with annoying real life The story was gripping all the way through I got a bit impatient in the middle as I wanted to know Camilla s back story and what Leo was up to and I wasn t being told but then evenaction started once the villain of the piece made his move.The ending left me thinking There is a lotto come The story is nowhere near ended but that will have to wait for another day, another story This part of the story had a satisfying conclusion in spite of this.If you are looking for an entertaining, action filled novel that is especially suitable in my view for anyone between 15 and 30, though being older won t stop you enjoying it, then look no further, and dive right in

    Well written, with engaging characters, this is the story of Camilla, who tries to run from a past she can t escape I particularly liked the characters of her friends Anita, Tony and Jill I m not a fan of the trope of the heroine being horrible to the love interest, while he devotedly puts up with her constant verbal and physical abuse, but it s done well for that sort of thing I would have loved if this book had focusedon the fantasy elements rather than the characters, as I love the Well written, with engaging characters, this is the story of Camilla, who tries to run from a past she can t escape I particularly liked the characters of her friends Anita, Tony and Jill I m not a fan of the trope of the heroine being horrible to the love interest, while he devotedly puts up with her constant verbal and physical abuse, but it s done well for that sort of thing I would have loved if this book had focusedon the fantasy elements rather than the characters, as I love the idea of hidden worlds, and I would have liked to knowabout how it existed, where it could be accessed, why they believed and behaved the way they did, and how come they had not been influenced by our world However, it s not fair to judge the book by what I would have liked it to be If you enjoy characters with a dark past, secrets, and lots of angst, this book is for you I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review

    This is a solid story, and I enjoyed the world that s been created The writing conveys the turbulent emotions that run rampant through the characters Great job With that said, I would caution any writer who decides to kill off a character to make sure that I feel the impact of their death ha, a pun for some levity Also, Tony and Jill are two of my favorite characters, and they were often sidelined to the wastelands I would have enjoyed them being part of the journey in aeffective wa This is a solid story, and I enjoyed the world that s been created The writing conveys the turbulent emotions that run rampant through the characters Great job With that said, I would caution any writer who decides to kill off a character to make sure that I feel the impact of their death ha, a pun for some levity Also, Tony and Jill are two of my favorite characters, and they were often sidelined to the wastelands I would have enjoyed them being part of the journey in aeffective way, even if it was only to show our two foreigners how to stalk someone on google or some other understated skill Not all characters have to fight with their fists Maybe in book two Narun and Gorah were introduced and I look forward to them being fleshed out as well Drive and inner strength fuel this story Book two is highly anticipated
