Shadow by Olivia Cooper Review

Reading Level: Young Adult
Self Published
Source: Author
First book in the Rex Deus Dynasty series
*This was gifted to me by author for review*
Angelina Hathaway was a baby when her mother gave her up for adoption. Now eighteen years old, she meets Guillermo - a handsome, arrogant boy who was sent from Europe to tell her that she’s inherited a vast fortune from her birth parents along with an explosive secret about her lineage that will change her forever.
Unfortunately, there are people who know her secret and will stop at nothing to control her for their own purposes, or even kill her. In order to escape, she must decide between those she can trust and those she can’t…before it’s too late.

This was a little off for me. I didn't really understand it. It had moments when it was all over the place. 

This tells the story of Angelina. After her parents death, she's just trying to survive. When Guillermo shows up with information about her inheritance and her past Angelina can't pass it up. She finds herself living a brand new life. But, it's not as great as she may have expected. 

Angelina wasn't a bad character but she wasn't great either. She was just okay for me. I did see some strength and determination in her at times. I liked that she was very careful about the things she was told and the people around her. This had some secondary characters. No one stood out though. We never got the chance to connect with anyone. 

This had a very unique concept. It was a little complex. The storyline was very all over the place. At times it didn't even make sense. There was a fair share of action. But even that was confusing and didn't seem to fit. I spent a lot of the book confused. Overall this was an okay read! A few more aspects and it would have been great!
