Vision of Shadows

Vision of Shadows - Vincent Morrone 4.5 out of 5 stars

I wish to thank the author for providing me a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is packed full of ghosts and the paranormal. Two families conflicted for centuries, each with their own secrets and a romance that screams danger from the get-go. The basic storyline has been used before, but the author weaves a tale that constructed something quite original from the usual and kept me intrigued all the way through.

“So, if you need to take to your wife or to speak with your dearly departed mother, there really is no reason to make the trip down to the graveyard. Save the gas. You’re better off going to a place they felt tied to, like their place of business or their home.”

The above quote really spoke to me. How many times when we’ve lost someone do we feel connected to them in places other than where their body rests? It’s thoughts like this, throughout the book, that the author provides a refreshing look at death and the afterlife.

The author really put his best foot forward with not only character development but also with the plot and scenery. He brings the reader into the story, which at times will make the readers heart beat a liitle faster, sweat a bit, tremble and gasp out loud in shock. An amazing YA book that readers from 14 on will be talking about with their friends. The only thing I found that was a little off was some of the slang used, but other than that this is a great story from start to finish.

I look forward to reading more from this author and recommend this book to everyone interested in something a bit out of the ordinary.
