No Spoiler Book Review
In a post “glitch” world, humans live side by side with vampires, cyborgs and other variants of the human condition. They live in a “safe zone” that is tenuous at best. Threats are everywhere and can come in the form of Demons, mindless monsters, and simply environmental toxicity. Life expectancy is rather short.
In the midst of the dangers of everyday life, there is an elite team determined to protect the fragile zone. There is Bombshell, the human cyborg, Eric the vampire, and Vincent, of unknown origin. They discover and recruit Colton, an amnesiac human with super-human fighting skills. Together they face the rogue vampires, monsters and demons that threaten their community.
This is a fast paced, post-apocalyptic story that will keep you turning pages. Great for anyone who loves end-of-the-world books and anyone who is a sucker for vampire fiction. If you enjoy the Underworld series, you’ll like the haughty leather clad vamp warriors. Shadow City is a creative and imaginative dark adventure.
This book is the first in a series, but stands alone pretty well if you don’t want to commit to a trilogy. I don’t tend to read sequels and felt like this wrapped up well, while still leaving plenty of room for future books.

Los Angeles is an apocalyptic wasteland.
Without orientation, Colton stumbles through the vast, deserted city. He doesn’t remember who he is and where he came from. Scavengers save his life from mutants and bring him to the only remaining inhabited area and safe Zone in former Hollywood.
There he learns that after a devastating catastrophe called The Glitch, reality shifted, allowing nightmarish creatures from another dimension to enter our world. These co-called Dark Ones feed on suffering and violence, wanting nothing less than the complete annihilation of humanity.
Colton discovers that he has extraordinary abilities and joins a league of unusual defenders: ex-cop Eric, female cyborg Bombshell and Vincent, a mighty entity from another world, disguised as a human soldier.
But the Dark Ones are evil beyond imagination and with their ice-cold enforcer, the traitor Eurydice, they are a threat nearly impossible to overcome. Cunning and ruthless, Eurydice sets a ploy in action, which leads to the destruction of the Zone’s defenses weakening the tiny community from within. It’s up to Colton and his friends to take a desperate stand against the superior enemy and save what is left of humanity from extinction.
Fast-paced, action-driven, and cinematic – an eternal fight of good vs. evil told in a way as never before.
