Fifteen-year-old Eve Evergold is cute, sassy and enjoying a busy social life.

Because although there’s something very attractive about the dark side…dating a demon? Pure hell!
No matter how much you fall in love with this gorgeous cover, be warned that the book is not as beautiful as the art. I was looking for a new paranormal book in the young adult genre and remembered getting this one a while back. I dusted it off, and dove right into a book that was suppose to be suspenseful and full of intense scenes of paranormal chills. Unfortunately, Shadows fell short of my expectations.
This book seems to be written for more of the younger teens in mind. With that said, I still felt that the younger teen generations would have just as many problems as older readers with this book. It was written with more focus on shopping and repetitive character descriptions that made me feel like I was reading a promotional ad instead of a book. Yes, the main characters are rich and beautiful. Enough! Move on to something substantial. Then when it finally starts to pick up, the plot goes so far out on a limb it was unbelievable. The characters are too accepting of the supernatural and think they can handle demons by reading journals.
I ended up not finishing this book which was a disappointment. I always try to finish a book no matter what, but I just couldn’t take the unbelievable story line and characters anymore. Not a series I will be continuing.
I did not like this book at all! 1 STAR/DNF
