Shadowed (The Shadow and Moon Series Book 1)

About the book

Sixteen-year-old Henley Abbott is just trying to make it through high school in the small town of Edison, Washington where she has lived her entire life. Constantly feeling alone, she’s surprised when she finds herself intrigued by the new boy in town, Cohen Davenport. 

With the entire town talking about the new and secretive family, Henley refuses to join in on the rumors swirling about them and attempts to keep her distance. 

However, as Cohen becomes intrigued by Henley, the pair seems to find a spark in a kindling friendship. 

As the intensity of their relationship builds, Henley discovers a dark secret plaguing Cohen and his elusive family. He reveals a twisted past that has kept his family on the run…for decades. 

Cohen should keep his distance. It is too dangerous to bring Henley into his life, but he can’t stay away from her. 

And, Henley doesn’t want him to. 

As Henley overcomes her own fears and trepidations, she finds herself engrossed in a battle that could destroy them both. Only their connection could help them all survive. 

Intensely romantic and extremely thrilling, this novel will pull readers in from the very first page. Fans of Twilight, The Guardian Series, and the Marked Saga will instantly fall in love with this new paranormal series.

My thoughts

This book is about Henley a sixteen year old girl who is so used to be an outcast, she only had one friend and that was Amy. But then Cohen moved in across from her home and she couldn’t help but to feel connected to him even if it meant putting her own life in danger.
The book begin with a lot of similarities to twilight, in face the author mentions twilight in the first few pages. This made me want to put the book down, I didn’t wanted to read a book like twilight but instead I decided to give it a chance, I’m glad I did too. I wasn’t expecting the type of paranormal creature him and his family were. it was a shocker but one that made the story so interesting. I definitely would recommend this book to other readers/lover of paranormal books , romance. I look forward to read the next book of this series. 🙂

I give this book 4 out of 5 bookstacks
