Intriguing new page turner!

I read this book in two days. I was compelled by forces beyond my control; to wit, the amazing talents of Ms. Lander-Garrett. This book grabbed me from the start with a puzzle wrapped in a mystery. The protagonist is completely real, a full-fledged human person, revealed in a myriad subtle ways. But who is she? We don’t find out until she does, at the very end. I could hardly put this book down, I was so wrapped up in Madison’s quest for understanding — until night fell, anyway. Then I had to set it aside for fear of being too scared before bedtime. Not that there are spooky things that jump out of the night — or not many. But the sense of ominous secrets lurking just beyond perception begins in the first chapter and continues on to the end. And beyond. This may be the author’s debut novel, but you’d never guess that. She writes with confident grace, leading us with assurance into her uncanny tale. I can not wait to read book two!!

THIS is what makes reading such a good time. BOOKS LIKE THIS.

I loved this book. It was spooky, suspenseful and easy to dive into from the start. Pages flew as I couldn’t wait to learn more about the ghost in Madison’s apartment — and more about Madison, herself. From the beginning despite her unknown past she was a likeable character that I found myself rooting for. I just wanted to learn more and more as I went along so this book was very hard to put down. It’s also exquisitely written — Author Tracey Lander-Garrett did an amazing job with this tale. I absolutely cannot wait until the next book is released!

Excellent, fast paced read. Kept me enticed from start to finish.

A Shade In The Mirror, by Tracey Lander-Garrett arrived in the mail on Thursday evening and here I am reviewing it on Monday morning after finishing the last 10 pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in the series as the mystery behind Madison’s past is intriguing. I enjoyed the character development, literary scene paintings and the general flow of story. From the prologue to the very last page, A Shade In The Mirror was thrilling and fun, leaving me hungry for more.

Wonderful Storytelling…

It’s refreshing to have a book in the supernatural genre not fall into the same old tropes. Lander-Garrett is a natural story teller and breathes believability into every character. Her cast is filled with the kind of people you want to hang out with, whether it be in the comic book store, or sitting at the girls’ kitchen table. The story itself has a fantastic acceleration that will leave you breathless for the next installment. I don’t want to touch on the plot, as each step in the story is something the reader will want to reveal for themselves, but I recommend that you pick up “Shade” right now and dive into a really great story.
