Review: THE SCENT OF SHADOWS

The Scent Of Shadows by Vicki Pettersson
Book 1 of the Signs of the Zodiac series

About The Scent Of Shadows:
When she was sixteen, Joanna Archer was brutally assaulted and left to die in the Nevada desert.

By rights, she should be dead.

Now a photographer by day, she prowls a different Las Vegas after sunset — a grim, secret Sin City where Light battles Shadow — seeking answers to whom or what she really is . . . and revenge for the horrors she was forced to endure.

But the nightmare is just beginning — for the demons are hunting Joanna, and the powerful shadows want her for their own . . .

Review:
You run somebody over with your car and you see the man heal his broken bones before your very eyes and all you do is call him crazy. Frankly I would be freaked out... Big time!! Then he starts telling you things that nobody else could possibly know and you call him crazy and calmly walk away. Wait a minute here! Do we see a non-authentic scene here? Suspension of disbelief? Hmm, let me see... down at the bottom of the ocean... Or maybe a"too stupid to live" (TSTL) scenario? Take your pick. Me, I stopped reading at page 40... Maybe this would be a good read to somebody who has a whole lot more "stupid" tolerance but this book is seriously not working for me.

Overall Rating: DNF (Did Not Finish)
