Product Description

Product Description

Imagine a town where you can stay out as late as you want, wake up when it suits you, you never have to go to work, and everything is free for the taking. Sounds perfect right? But what if you can’t remember where you are or how you got there? What if you can’t ever leave? And what if the only other people around are hostages, just like you? Would you still want to stay?

Jasmine Marshall certainly didn’t think so until she met Justin Beck; a dashing active-duty member of the United States Army and fellow hostage. With him around life in Kolob might not be so bad after all … or so she thought. There are vampires and psychics at the breakfast table! Disturbing acts of torture and senseless violence are commonplace. Biochemical warfare is a very real threat, and the town’s mayor is an elusive mad-scientist obsessed with his own theories about December 21, 2012!

In a place where one has everything to gain and nothing to lose, one thing reigns true: nothing in Kolob is ever as it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating 5 Mar. 2013
Format:Paperback
"Citizens" by L.M. Smith came with high recommendations to me and I did not think it could possibly live up to the hype, but it did. Jasmine - or Jazz -suddenly finds herself trapped in a hotel in Kolob, a mysterious city. The hotel is full of other 'Citizens', all also trapped by the unseen Mayor E. In this obscure and mysterious setting the 'inmates' need to figure out how they got here and why they are here. As the captivators or Big Brother begins to let them move around town and socialise with each other they all start their own theories why they are here. Are they kidnapped for ransom, are they political hostages ina cold war scenario, have they been selected on purpose or coincidental?
The mystery around this situation is extremely well done. Page after page I tried to figure out with the characters what was going on. Gradually friendships and informal alliances form and plans to escape are being discussed.
I can't say any more than that, only that for the entire read I was impatient to find out. The characters were well chosen and worked well together as a group. I was amazed at how long the author could keep the mystery and the suspense up and manage to keep my interest and fascination.
The writing is tight and professional and makes this very easy to read. When the mystery was finally solved I was not disappointed.
An excellent piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Citizens 19 Oct. 2012
Format:Paperback
I was given an e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

This book is completely different from anything I have read. When I read the blurb, I was like awesome, right down my alley, but then I started reading it a realized it wasn't anything like I expected it to be. Believe me, that isn't a bad thing at all.

Five "citizens" are being kept in a town know to them as Kolob. They have no clue how they got there, where there is, and what is going to helping to them next. And then there is the fact that they don't know each other and have nothing in common what so ever.

The storyline is full of action and suspense. Just when you think you have it figured out, you find out that you are completely wrong, well I was anyway. It has a cliff hanger at the end that leaves you screaming "NO WAY! Are you kidding me?" I am going to be a nervous wreck waiting for the next book in the series to be released. I can't even imagine what the future holds for "The Citizens."

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling but chilling! 19 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given a copy of this novel in return for an honest review.

I absolutely LOVED The Citizens. A book which both thrilled and chilled me as the characters went through some pretty overwhelming changes, betrayal, love and familial bonds that I did not expect to see. I really did enjoy the whole book, including the cliff-hanger at the end and am now going to eagerly await the next book in the series, which I hope I'll get to review as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Citizens L.M.Smith 11 Aug. 2012
Format:Paperback
I was asked to read and review this book by the author and leave an honest review. This book is absolutely brilliant I loved the characters and the way they interacted with one another. They were very wary at first but then they all pulled together, it is a insight into human behaviour under adversity and how after many ups and downs they were a team. The ending was brilliant as it fitted in with the book,I hope that there are more books to come from this author as I for one would love to read them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read with a great twist 1 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jasmine Marshall is a loner, she had no family, lives on her ranch and the only interaction she has with the outside world is her on line one, where she can be something she's not. She likes it that way. Things are about to change. One night she is attacked in her home only to wake up in a strange hotel. The place is deserted except for four other people, all in the same boat as her.
Why have they been taken, what could be achieved in keeping them in constant fear?

Reading the first few chapters I wasn't sure about this book. I had seen the story too many times. Back to The Prisoner and more recently a T.V series where a woman wakes in a hotel, in a small town with a group of others with no reason as to why they are there. It follows a very similar line to the T.V series, that is until I got 60% through. Now that was a twist I never expected and I loved where it led. Together with the consequences that would reverberate around the world.

The writing is good, the plot moving it along nicely. It would have been nice to get a more rounded picture of the kidnapped group but I suppose that was the point. The idea of not really trusting all of them, to keep you on your toes. This was a nice easy read, nothing too taxing and something you can enjoy over a day or two. It will be interesting to see where they go next after the final revelation and I will be reading the next instalment.
