Format: Paperback
An exquisite paranormal romance wherein the central focus is actually about friendship and loyalty rather than just irrevocable, impassioned love. The customs and unique culture is well-researched and beautifully detailed adding to the story's authentic feel. The writing is compelling, touching and deeply beguiling professing the author's uniquely identifiable style and accomplished ability with putting thoughts into words. What caught my attention/ fascination was the unmistakable love triangle between Hannah, Josh and Ben that I felt was slightly reminiscent of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight saga (Edward, Bella and Jacob) for it really tugged at the heartstrings and drew me into the story.

`Shadow of Time' begins with Hannah after her year of teaching French at a high school and when she joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom's log cabin in Arizona. There she encounters Ben's childhood friend, Josh, who has grown up into quite a young man. She soon is torn between friendship and a more intense connection with Josh, with feelings seeping out from her inner core. Whether it is either providence or fate she is tormented by restlessness and demons from the dark, awaking in her soul and coming alive at night. She is plagued by nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and about terrifying shadows which are hunting her. Josh is also forever present both within her dreams and every single waking hour ~ it is all so mysterious as secrets start to unravel.

I found this intriguing tale so very interesting to read, and I absolutely loved how Jen Minkman combined myth and legend, with a sprinkling of magic and historical depth.

Disclaimer: Jen Minkman is an online acquaintance of mine; she reviewed my first book last year.

Okay, I'm just going to come right out and say it: SHADOW OF TIME is my favorite paranormal romance ever! What did I like so much about it? Its seriousness.

I don't mean to make SHADOW OF TIME sound like a bore. It's not in the least. It's an involving, well written story with characters I cared about and rooted for at every turn. It's exciting, with threads of mystery and action/adventure underlying the romance in a stimulating way. It's also movingly sweet and tender. And the paranormal elements are c-r-e-e-p-y!

No, by "serious" I mean that the book carefully situates its romance plot in Native American history so as to make the characters' future matter not just to them and their friends/families, but in a bigger way.

When I first realized SHADOW OF TIME's hero and heroine were a Native American man and a white American woman, I was a little worried. I'm not a fan of Native American romance as a subgenre. (Not aware that there is such a subgenre? Oh yes, there very much is. Google it and check out the hundreds of books Goodreads-shelved as "Native American romance.") Here's Sherman Alexie lampooning the subgenre:

"I was a little Spokane Indian boy who read every book and saw every movie about Indians, no matter how terrible.

"I'd read those historical romance novels about the steroidal Indian warrior ravaging the virginal white schoolteacher.

"I can still see the cover art.

I was given this book in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
The cover makes a lot of sense when you read the book as it is a scene from within the book. I tend to favour covers that are a scene from the book as you know your minds eye is on the same wavelength of the Authors imagery. The cover depicts Hannah and Josh, or maybe even Josh and his wife in a former life in a Navajo cave.
The book is well written and descriptive in such a good way you can see the places Jan is describing.
I love all the characters, Hannah, Josh and Ben. I really loved how the former lives were brought into the story and we eventually find out about Hannah and Ben too. I admit i had guessed who Hannah was etc but the twist with who Ben is/was is really great and though you are given hints they are very subtle. I wasn't so keen on Emily as I felt a slight undercurrent that perhaps she was somewhat jealous of Hannah and Josh's relationship.
Maybe it was just me that read Emily that way.
Some of my review probably sounds a little confusing but, it will, I promise make sense when you read the book, and you really should.
The only part of the book I wasn't as enamored with was near the end, the rituals and descriptions of past lives seemed a little off, in that I was so interested in them, but didn't get the detail where I wanted it. The scenery was a little overly described and I would have preferred a bit more emotional description. I really loved the fact the author went into history of Josh's people and to be honest would have loved and definitely read a book just on that and Josh's tribes traditions etc. Perhaps others would find the detail long winded, but it was telling us about a complicated time in history.
