    One thought on “Nightshade

    1. Montzalee Wittmann

      Nightshade (Silent Scream, #1) by A.K. Anderson is a kindle scout book and a mystery and a paranormal book. I like witch books and a good mystery. This one has both and is okay. I enjoyed it.

      Iris has had an interesting upbringing, her mother was murdered when she was younger and she was kept away from her grandmother Kate without explanation why. Iris was raised by her father but when a mysterious guy named Heathcliff Monroe shows up things take a turn for the worse and Iris' dad winds up dead. Iris soon discovers through Monroe that she is a witch with latent powers and witches are a rare thing in this book.I enjoyed the premise of this book, a mystery within self-discovery, but I [...]

      I received a free copy of this book through Kindle Scout.2.5 StarsInteresting story and a decent start to a new series. However the book at times felt as though it was being rushed. Rushed to the point of confusion at a few points. The characters were a little too one dimensional but I never did figure out if it was done on purpose to give the characters an air of mystery due to all the secrets they were hiding or if they just weren't given enough attention in the first place. Hopefully as the s [...]

      I think for a young writer Anderson writes well in terms of her descriptions. I like the depth she goes into but the actual story itself lost me slighty by going off in different directions and left me unsure what actually happened! its sort of feels like it has twilight elements but doesn't quite hit the bar. maybe more of a teen novel.

    5. Marcia

      Interesting ideas, told in a rushed, confused way. How are the weeks spent in captivity given so little time? Seems sloppy. A heavy content/timeline edit would have done so much because the ideas were there.

    6. Emily

      I did not care for this book stylistically--it seemed barely coherent and none of the characters are particularly memorable.

    7. Bernice

      Nightshade follows Iris Reed in the aftermath of her grandmother's death (view spoiler)[and the revelation that [her grandmother] Kate isn't dead after all (hide spoiler)], in the company of a mysterious Heathcliffe Monroe. Suddenly thrown (back) into a world in which magic is real—and hers—Iris finds herself struggling for her life. WritingAK Anderson's style is definitely not for everybody. At times heavy-handed with her description, her writing is almost constantly a stream of consciousne [...]

      A.K. Anderson, known on tumblr as provocative-envy, is one of my favourite fic writers ever. Seriously, her writing style is so distinct and eloquently done, I will literally read anything she writes because it's basically guaranteed to be a literary masterpiece. Her novel Nightshade has been on my list of things to read for awhile now, and two days ago at 2:00am, as a way to avoid my actual schoolwork, I decided to finally download the ebook and read it. Unsurprisingly, I was not disappointed. [...]

      Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Kindle Scout!I really really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read and very fast paced. I absolutely adored the writing style, it flowed incredibly well and fit the tone of the book perfectly. I don't know when the sequel comes out, but hopefully soon because I'm super intrigued to find out where the story is going to go next! The twist wasn't super predictable, in my opinion; it was clear when the writer wanted it to become clear, but before that [...]

    10. Michelle

      Pretty good bookCould have done without the swearing, but interesting plot and twists. Probably could have written it differently to end as one book, but there's more in store.

    11. Sabrina

      Fell a bit flat, felt like a outline in places, good storyI think the author has a good story idea here, I just don't feel links its been finessed enough to be published as a standalone novel. The main character is strong and well-defined, the others all fall a bit flat. There are fewer than 10 total characters in entire book, and yet they are nearly all entirely forgettable or replications of characters seen elsewhere. The story itself could have had a clean ending, but the author has made it p [...]

    12. Tina

      The story started interestingly. But then it seemed that she kind of fast forwarded a lot. And then often the character just knew things and propelled the plot forward unnaturally. And the ending wasn't satisfying. I get it's supposed to be the first book in the series but it felt too incomplete as its own story. I ended it feeling meh. Not compelled to keep reading.

    13. Kat

      Nightshade leaves plenty of impressions (I haven't been able to stop thinking about it all day) but the words that wrap them all up best for me are 'southern gothic fairytale.' (view spoiler)[ (Also 'later.' MONROE/IRIS OKAY I'M OBSESSED.)(hide spoiler)]This story drips with fairytales in the best possible way. While contemporary, it's full of references in both plot and dialogue that give it a very meta fairytale feel, set within entrancing, haunting southern imagery.Anderson's writing style is [...]

    14. Al

      It's been six years since the tragic murder of Iris's mother, and now she discovers her estranged grandmother, Kate, has passed away. With the mystery behind her peculiar grandmother comes a revelation about Iris's family's magical heritage that sets her on a path of self-discovery.It was the premise that convinced me to read this book, and while it did start off with much intrigue, it quickly lost its way in terms of plot development and characterisation. I found it to be overly descriptive at [...]

    15. Shona

      so i feel a little like I got run over by a train in a good way because I vaccuumed this entire book into my psyche in a little under two hours and I am dizzy with it. Anderson's flowery language and love of run on sentences may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's just on the edge of stream of consciousness that I love, especially when the consciousness is all coming from her protagonist Iris, who we see genuine development in by the time we reach the end of the novel. The paranoia that Ander [...]

    16. Hannah

      The story was quite good, and I enjoyed the little misdirection with regards to the actual antagonist, but all the action really gets lost very easily in all the author's similes and metaphors. One minute the characters are sitting and talking, and the next they're being kidnapped in a fancy Land Rover? I got lost several times as a result; plus, all the description could get tedious. That said, I will still probably read the next one, just to see what happens with Iris and Monroe.

    17. Barb Morgan

      Made It ThroughBut Just BarelyVery disjointed writing style. Really disliked it and will not go on with this series. Story would have been fairly good had the authors writing style not been so obsessively descriptive with comparisons. Ugh!

    18. Julie-Ann Taniguchi

      Couldn't stop reading.Great story. There were some aspects about the author's writing style and technique that I didn't care for. However, the storyline was excellent and I couldn't put the book down.

    19. Louise

      I like it a lot and the premise is really cool. however sometimes the writing was too flowery which made it a lil hard to follow and I wish the characters were more developed but that'll probably happen in the next book. the dialogue was super good though.

    20. D.A. Schneider

      Well written narrative, though a bit overdone on the analogies. Seems like a good fit for fans of Twilight.
