Book Review: Erasing Shadow by K D Rose

kdSynopsis:

Generations of mystery smash together when a seemingly traditional family must shatter their illusions of normality to confront themselves and their friends, leaving no possibility unexplored in order to rescue- well, who exactly? Watch the Ross family, the High Five Gang, and multiple generations dig into an innovative explosion of imagination where they must confront numerous realities, real-world danger, and worst of all—their own teenage hormones!

In a place where nothing is as it seems and shocks are around every corner, even the people you thought you knew may find themselves strangers in this moving and provocative reality-bender. With breathless pacing and psychological intrigue, Erasing: Shadows and the High Five Gang will keep you guessing until the very end.

My Review:

What a great idea, the author should be really proud that they came up with something different, and not just on the face of it, but from the tried and tested paranormal novel formula that most other ones tend to follow.

From a writer’s perspective,  there are obvious dangers to doing this. I found the world building a bit complicated and the characters’ backstories a little lacking. The relationships were a bit fuzzy, but that probably was down to the fact that the author didn’t go done the normal relationship route. I think that maybe a prequel should be written quick to give more depth to characters like the High Five Gang?

The front cover is very pretty and will certainly stand out from the rest on the virtual bookshelf.

Overall I’d give Erasing Shadows 4 out of 5 stars, an interesting read, but one you need to concentrate on to really appreciate.
