I'm not sure the other reviewers actually listened to the prose of this novel...perhaps they're frustrated and/or unpublished writers themselves?!?! As for SCENT OF SHADOWS, I found the writing to be excellent. Yes, this is a debut novel by Vicki Pettersson and her voice is NEW and FRESH and EXCITING. Jo, the strong female protagonist, isn't a vampire or werewolf, or shapeshifter, she's a gutsy, gritty, streetsmart chick who has just found out she's also part of the world of underground superheroes! IN LAS VEGAS! What an incredible setting for an Urban Fantasy.
Look, if you want more of the same in this genre, look up vampires or zombies. But if you want a new voice in literature, one that you should hear, then download THIS. You WON'T be disappointed!!!

The worst writing ever encountered

If you've ever lamented over the fact that you could never be as good a writer as the authors who are actually paid to write, listen to this one. I have never read cheesier prose before. I've read better from Remedial Composition students. The publisher for this monument to ineptitude should be ashamed of itself.
