Shadow Hills Review

Book/Livro: Shadow Hills
Author/Autor(a): Anastasia Hopcus
Publisher/Editora: Egmont, USA
Pages/Páginas: 400 pages

After her sister Athena's tragic death, it's obvious that grief-stricken Persephone "Phe" Archer no longer belongs in Los Angeles. Hoping to make sense of her sister's sudden demise and the cryptic dreams following it, Phe abandons her bubbly LA life to attend an uptight East Coast preparatory school in Shadow Hills, MA -- a school which her sister mysteriously mentioned in her last diary entry before she died. Once there, Phe quickly realizes that something is deeply amiss in her new town. Not only does Shadow Hills' history boast an unexplained epidemic that decimated hundreds of its citizens in the 1700s, but its modern townies also seem eerily psychic, with the bizarre ability to bend metal. Even Zach -- the gorgeous stranger Phe meets and immediately begins to lust after -- seems as if he is hiding something serious. Phe is determined to get to the bottom of it. The longer she stays there, the more she suspects that her sister's untimely death and her own destiny are intricately linked to those who reside in Shadow Hills.

What I thought/O que eu achei:

I just loved Shadow Hills, I was inside the book from the first page and couldn't stop reading..
Phe is a lovely and strong character, she wants to know what's going on and she keep looking for anwsers till the end. I don't have to say that I have a crush on Zach (he's just so cute *-*), I always have a crush on a book's character :D But I have to say that Phe & Zach's relationship was hot! I just loved the chemistry between them *-*
I adored Graham, Brody and Adriana, they were amazing characters, I even liked Trent ;)
And the mistery! Oh, it kept me awake till I could finish the book.
Now I'm here hoping for a sequel ;D
If you have the chance buy SH, do it! You won't be desappointed ;D


Eu simplesmente amei Shadow Hills, eu ja entrei no livro na primeira página e não pude mais parar de ler...
A Phe é muito amável, e é uma personagem forte, ela quer descobrir o que está acontecendo e continua buscando por respostas até o fim. E eu não preciso dizer que eu to apaixonada pelo Zach né? (ele é tão lindo *-*) Eu sempre me apaixono pelo mocinho do livro ;D Mas uma coisa eu tenho que dizer: a relação da Phe e do Zach? H-O-T! Amei a química entre eles *-*
Eu gostei muito do Graham, do Brody e da Adriana, eles são ótimos personagens... eu até mesmo gostei do Trent :)
E o mistério! Meu deus, ele me manteve acordada até eu conseguir terminar o livro.

Agora eu estou aqui torcendo por uma continuação ;D
Se você tiver a chance de comprar SH, compre! Você não vai ficar desapontado.

Last thought/Último pensamento:

Shadow Hills is, for sure, one of my favorites books of 2010.


Shadow Hills é, definitivamente, um dos meus livros favoritos de 2010.
