3.0 out of 5 stars not quite amazing..., 18 Jan 2007
This review is from: Shadow Touch (Mass Market Paperback)
Not sure I read the same books as the other reviewers.

'Shadow Touch' looked very promising when I first picked it up and the rather vague synopsis on the bake intrigued me enough to borrow it from a library and boy am I glad I didn't spend money on it.

Maybe it's because I haven't read any books by MML before but It took me a very long time to actually understand just what the hell was going on. I mean, I have a very active imagination (believe you me) but I think this book took the whole paranormal thing to a whole new level.

I felt that MML spent more time on the complexities of the characters and their 'powers' than she did on the actual plot so when you finally surfaced from a pain-stakingly detailed description some sort of psychic 'worm' tracking system thing, you suddenly realised the plot had moved on by, like, 4 steps without you knowing.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad book; not at all. I mean I did read it from beginning to end (the latter being a bit of a rushing-to-answer-all-of-the-thousands-of-questions job) but in my opnion, don't bother reading this if:

a) you're just looking for something to pass the time - cos you'll have a creased forehead till the very end

b) this is your first foray into the paranormal genre - you might want to start with something lighter (maybe amanda scott?)

c)you're into rather raucnhy reads - there is zero anticipation and only one, very...blurred sex scene

nad finally d)you, like me, are searching for a romance book with an attention grabbing, blanced, spicy, naturally progressive plot 'cos let's face it: this book just aint got it goin on.
