Foreshadow - Book Review

Foreshadow (The Shadow Imperium Trilogy, #1)
by Brea Essex


What is it about:
Imagine discovering that your boyfriend was out to kill you—and that the annoying boy from school was your guardian angel.

Rae Davenport has already lost her mother. The only thing keeping her sane is her new boyfriend, Andrei—that is, until she finds out that he wants to kill her. Andrei is a devil, and he wants to use Rae as a sacrifice to get back into Heaven. The only one who can save her is Logan, her guardian angel. He’s only annoyed her in the past, but now he will be her savior.

What did I think of it:
This is an entertaining story.

There are a lot of things happening that I found rather unbelievable (yes, even for a paranormal story), but that put aside this is an enjoyable and fast paced read.

There's some cool intrigue, lots of action and a bit of romance. The writing is decent enough and the world building interesting. I think this story would have worked better if it had been longer and certain scenes/events would have been given more room, but that could just be my opinion.

The ending was very abrupt and kind of baffled me. I suppose the ending is to make people more eager to read book 2, but it just left me feeling frustrated.

I'm not sure if I will read the next book in this series. This first book was nice and had promise, so I might pick up the next book to see how this series developes from here.

Why should you read it:
It's an enjoyable Paranormal YA read.
