    This is such an interesting concept of paranormal mixing. You ha

    This is such an interesting concept of paranormal mixing. You have some old school mythology supernaturals with a more modern supernatural character thrown together to make things extremely intriguing. This is the story of a girl, who is normal, but rushes to the aid of her missing friend, and in her rescue mission, she finds out so much more is in the world than most know about. She has a sketchy past, or should I say her family did, which has bled into her future. The shadow people are more than willing to overlook that past, in fact their leader wants her so bad, they don’t even care who they hurt in the process to get to her. 




    Ava is a young woman, who’s father was connected to the cartel- or so people say- so she happens to have body guards. :) Yet, she is always giving them the slip. She gets a phone call telling her that her best friend Dyson has gone missing in New Orleans, and she drops everything to find him. The police won’t tell her anything, his own family is being creepy and rude, and there’s this scary presence that seems to follow her. She is so dedicated in finding out where that she is literally thrown into a world of supernatural beings that only few can see. She is trying to figure out who to trust, and how on earth is she going to find Dyson. I liked Ava. I think she may have some more adventures coming up :)  




    There’s a bucket full of side characters, and they part I like the most is the mystery they add to the story. You don’t know who is a good guy, bad guy, shadow guy/girl, or just nutcase :) I have my few favorites, but I don’t want to tell you who they are because then I’d have to tell you why I like them, which would be spoilery. :)




    Also, I loved the mystery. There are clues, and when you figure it out, you will face palm yourself for not figuring it out sooner. Such an interesting play on the supernatural world. Plus, I did NOT see that ending coming. It ended nicely. It makes for a nice debut of this series. BUT, I have one complaint…. I’m A LOCAL… so, like, where’s the weather? Dude, it’s freaking oppressingly hot and humid here, plus, we have crazy winters, and it’s like a whole different country with the weather. I didn’t get a feel for that part NOR the ridiculously good food. Um, I’m chubby for a reason- we have the most amazing food! BUT I did feel that the landscape was good. The general direction and local outings felt ok. So, I look forward to more.  4 MYSTERIOUSLY SHADOWED PAWS!!

    Murder on Mars is a tale that has twists and turns that keeps you guessing. Ava is fierce, loyal, and hard-headed. Nothing will stand in her way to find out the secrets that the Shadows are so desperate to hid. The world is strange enough at times, but in New Orleans all the things that go bump in the night really do exist and Ava will do anything to help her best friend Dyson, who is gone missing and she thinks the supernaturals have something to do with it.

    Ava is a strong character that anyone would admire. Her fierce determination, unwavering loyalty, and unyielding love shine through the darkness that lurks around her in this story. This story tackles you right from the start and keeps you running and second guessing the whole way through! The cover could have been done better, but overall it is a must read that you won’t regret!

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
