Sapphire Smyth and the Shadow Five (Shadows) by R.J. Furness

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Sapphire Smyth and the shadow five by R.J. Furness, thank you to the Write Reads Tours for organising it.

Pages: 104

Synopsis: Have you ever seen something you can’t explain? Did it vanish as fast as it appeared?

Perhaps that thing you saw was lurking in the shadows, and you caught a glimpse of it before it went back into hiding.

There’s a good chance, of course, that the thing you saw simply emerged from your imagination.

Or maybe, just maybe, it didn’t…

Sapphire Smyth is no stranger to rejection. When she was only a baby, her father abandoned her after her mother died. Since then, Sapphire has never felt like she belonged anywhere, or with anyone. To make things worse, her foster carers have now turned their back on her – on her eighteenth birthday. After living with them throughout her childhood, Sapphire has to find a new home. Is it any wonder she finds it hard to trust people?

Abandoned by the people she called family, Sapphire is alone and searching for some meaning in her life. Except that meaning has already come looking for her. When she discovers mysterious creatures lurking in the shadows, Sapphire soon realises that her fate is unlike anything she had ever imagined.

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧

My Thoughts: After finishing this book and ranting that it wasn’t long enough, it had just got me hooked and wanting to know more and then the dreaded “to be continued” appeared I did some research and the books are meant to resemble TV episodes & in that format it works really well.

Loved the world building that had happened so far and I am definitely intrigued to find out more.

Sapphire is yet to grow on me as a main character, I found her whiny and annoying, asking all these questions but not stopping long enough to listen to the answers, I kind of wanted to slap some sense into her.

I love Ben already, I can see him becoming my favourite. for an author to write 2 characters and make me feel opposite emotions towards them in such a short book is impressive, I will be looking more into this series, I want to experience Sapphires journey as she discovers the truth about who she is.
