      We Shadows
After a year of coasting rather than living, destroyed by her boyfriend Eliot s death, Shane Valentine matriculates into his college She begins to build a new life as a college freshman, only to have it stolen from her one night, when she is trying to drown her sorrows at the bottom of a daiquiri.She wakes the next day in a strange apartment with three scars she can t remember and a bloody shirt On her walk of shame in stolen clothes, she realizes that no one aside for her roommate Roselyn, a Wiccan with epilepsy, remembers her Unfortunately three occultists are after her to fix the mistake they made and they remember her too well.Gideon, a daemonic being with an penchant for card, finds her and assures her he is going to help her out of his own sense of self preservation After a quick trip to the nameless campus drug dealer, whose abilities far exceed the selling of narcotics, Shane begins on an adventure to figure out what was done with her and why, to regain a life she had been wasting in mourning Then, she begins to see Eliot s ghosts and realizes even chaos cannot be so cut and dry.

    This book left me with many questions The first question is what genre is this I ve never read a book like this before It s outside the realms of any mainstream fantasy novels I ve read It s set in the real world, but not in a city The system of magic is not clearly defined, but I imagine it will be in later books in the series.Also, what happened happened What was real, what was a dream, and what was possible delusion I don t know I think this is another topic that wil...

    I bought this book based on the strength of the author s short story anthology Find What You Love and Let It Kill You I was not disappointed This is a very enjoyable book, mostly because of Quackenbush s prose and wit He has a extraordinary ability to mix metaphysical thought with wry humor.However, this book is not quite as strong as his anthology At times it can be confusing, as the plot gets lost in the meta thought I mentioned above There are several characters introduced at once, and I bought this book based on the strength of the author s short story anthology Find What You Love and Let It Kill You I was not disappointed This is a very enjoyable book, mostly because of Quackenbush s prose and wit He has a extraordinary ability to mix metaphysical thought with wry humor.However, this book is not quite as strong as his anthology At times it can be confusing, as the plot gets lost in the meta thought I mentioned above There are several ch...
