I must admit, after hearing extracts of the princess diaries on the radio, I'd pretty much dismissed Meg Cabot as an Author. Which just goes to show we all must eat our words from time to time. I can't remember how I came to listen to an extract of this book, but I was caught at once by the story. The style appealed, being written in a way both children and adults could enjoy. Shadowland turned out to be a gripping, well written book. I was delighted with the author's descriptions of California, a place I've never been to, but which sounds beautiful. Told in the first person, from the point of view of Susanna, the gutsy heroine, Meg Cabot brings her voice across really well. I haven't liked a teen heroine so much since Rose from Vampire Academy. Recommended for lovers of the paranormal.

I loved this book. I'm not a teenager and didn't know it was aimed at that age group when I downloaded it. But I was engaged from the first paragraph. The narrator is perfect for the character Suze. I'm actually going to get the rest of these because I enjoyed the first one so much. Guilty pleasures I guess.

THIS WAS AN ACCIDENTAL BUY AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S FROM THE KIDS SECTION AS AN ADULT I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT AND AM GETTING STUCK INTO THE REST OF THE SERIES. EVEN MY HUSBAND LIKES THE BOOK
