Shadowlands By: Kate Brian

Rory Miller was stalked and attacked by a serial killer (her math teacher, Mr. Nell).  Somehow she managed to survive, but Mr. Nell got away.... and he's not one to give up.  Now that he got so close to having Rory, he won't quit until he finishes his plan.  The FBI are out of options and decide to put Rory, her sister Darcy, and their dad into the witness protection program.  When they get to their destination, they realize they've been sent to a small island-resort town.  Darcy and Rory make friends easily as the townies are quite friendly... but also maybe a little too friendly.  Rory can't quite shake the feeling that she's being watched again and starts thinking maybe Mr. Nell is close.  She's met with a lot of dismissiveness... but maybe she should listen to her instincts because people are disappearing on Juniper Landing and it's only a matter of time before she's next.
 
 
 
This is going to be so hard to review because of the surprise ending.  I don't want to give anything away, but I feel like I was punched in the face.  So anyway on with the review....
 
This book got me hooked from page 1.  It starts out so INTENSE!!  The first 50 pages are insanely thrilling and scary!  Imagine if a serial killer was after you or your family??  It's crazy!  I thought it was odd that the sister and dad didn't take it as seriously as I wanted them to.  Hello, your sister/daughter was just almost killed by a man who's already killed 14 girls, can you be a little bit more thankful that she's still here and take some precautions to make sure it stays that way??  But I guess with the death of the mother years earlier they had some family issues that made them not act right.
 
After they arrived at Juniper Landing, the girls immediately connect with a group of kids all wearing these weird leather braided bracelets.  At that point I knew there was some kind of secret... but no clue what it could be.  They were extremely friendly people, but they were just taking a little bit too much interest in Rory for my liking... stalkerish.
 
I flew through this book.  It was so addicting that I just had to know!!  There were short chapters where we would hear from Mr. Nell and they freaked me out to where I had to continue reading and make sure Rory was going to be okay! 
 
I must say I loved the island setting.  The foggy small-town was a perfect creepy setting.  Plus I just happen to love island books!  I love that isolated feel.
 
Now we get to the end.  While I was reading this book I noticed how quickly the end was coming and there were still no answers!!  I started getting really nervous, until it was revealed on the very last page (so don't read the last page unless you want to ruin the book for yourself).  I WISH I could tell you what happens because it made me be like "WTF" for a good hour or so.  I seriously was just sitting around being like "What the hell???" until my husband told me to go read another book.  I'm not going to lie I had to email someone who already read the book to completely understand what exactly happened... and now that I know?!?!?!  I'm not sure what I think!  I guess I'll just have to read the next book in the series to truly know if it's going to be for me or not.
 
Overall:  A really great thriller with an exciting twist.  I would totally recommend if only for the fact that you will get addicted once you start reading it.  If you liked Hysteria by Megan Miranda or Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook or The Lying Game by Sara Shepard, this reminds me slightly of those books (but I think it's even better).
