I voluntarily read and reviewed Shadow State All thoughts and opinions are my ownFirst ThoughtsThe ending sucked just an fyi But up until the ending the book was really good I enjoyed the plot mostly I enjoyed the concept and the writing The story had me hooked till the very end Why oh why must the ending conclude that way Never read anything by this author so had no idea what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail and the information that was provided to make this world possibleso with that said let's continueGoodreads SummaryWhat Brynn Caldwell can't remember might get her killedBrynn is a promising science student recovering from a bad relationship that sent her spiraling into a depression But as she puts the pieces of her life back together a few don't fit Brynn is uncovering memories of being abducted and possibly brainwashed It's all connected to a drug that might be an ultimate weapon a tool to control people's memories Now to stop a possible terrorist attack Brynn has to find out what she's been forced to forget and what side she's really onPlotLike I mentioned above the plot was pretty good very fast and had some mystery The problem I had was some of the plot was predictable and the ending was frustrating and lacked a good conclusion I don't want to give anything away but I felt the ending left a lot of uestions unanswered and the reader yearning for a better outcome Also the plot had a lot of information that would need to be researched and I think the author did a good job on that Though I'm not sure if it was accurate but it seemed real all the sameIt was creative in some ways too like the science behind the mystery drug that's talked about throughout the whole book This is a short book compared to some books nowadays so it makes it a fast read can be read in one or two sittings So if you're looking for a uick read this is the book for you I wish some of the parts weren't predictable; would've made the book interesting to read But maybe to some this story would come as a total surprise so I wouldn't knock it for that one aspect aloneRomanceThere was romance in this book but not one I particularly care for It seemed odd and forced so I was not a fan I think this book would've been better without the romance but in the end I knew why it was needed it did add to the plot Without the romance things in this book would not have been possible But I didn't like it so if you're a romance reader this is not a book for youCharactersBrynn was an okay character She was fun to get to know and understand Her memories were tampered with so it was hard to get to know her that well But the parts where she was lucid she had a lot of deep emotions and thoughts Some of the decisions she made I would have done differently but that's what makes her uniue and real She had her own thought processes and personality Her mother was stiff and cold and I would hate to have her as my own mother Dex was really the main mystery in this book He was just as mysterious as the drug itself I couldn't always get a good grasp on him so I didn't always know what to expect from him All the other characters were good and were needed to add to the story line so they were worth it But like I mentioned earlier I wish I could've gotten a better grasp on Brynn main protagonist But maybe she was meant to appear that way; maybe that was the authors's intention all along Transformation of the CharacterThis is a tricky part of the book to tackle Yes in a way the Brynn did transform but some areas she didn't It was the whole memories being contaminated that made this a tricky area to discuss And I cant' really discuss much without giving the story away so you'll just have to read it yourself DescriptionThis was one area of the book that I really enjoyed The description of Brynn's world and her thoughts and feelings really added some mystery to the story Though the beginning chapter I think had too much description I think it could've been cut down some and still get the point across But as the story progressed it did get better Brynn's emotions and thoughts were well described and allowed the reader to get attached to her when she was expressing them The description of the scenery and world was good also We got to really picture what was happening and see the foreshadowing in some placesStyleThis was written in one POV and in third person Being written in only Brynn's point of view only allowed the reader to see the world in one perspective It left most of what was going on a mystery well to some readers I will admit there were some surprises and twists I didn't guess or see coming So yes it's not completely predictable Being written in third person allowed the reader to be a little detached from Brynn and see a little of the world just not as much as if it were in than one point of view The author's writing was excellent I would totally read by this author just in hopes the ending to her next book would be fulfilling and satisfying uote of the BookCan't do a direct uotation because this book isn't out yet and the publisher asked the reader to not to put any uotation from the book But just know the writing is excellent and fun to readLast ThoughtsThough I didn't always enjoy all parts of this book; it was excellent writing It enticed the readers and allowed them to explore a world not of their own Don't know if I would recommend anyone to read this because of the ending; but I would recommend keeping an eye on this author Read whatever else she writes; perhaps the ending will be much better But if you're looking for good writing this book has that I leave it up to you as a reader to make the decision to read this Best of luck to you fellow reader Let me know what you think

What Brynn Caldwell can’t remember might get her killed Brynn is a promising science student recovering from a bad relationship that sent her spiraling into depression But as she. For those of us who've suffered through dramatic break ups with our romantic partners or gone through extremely painful times it might be wonderful to have those memories erased in order to promote the healing process But what if important things were erased and you kept making the same mistakes The plot for this novel is promising Brynn Caldwell the daughter of a musician and a scientist is on the fast track to success She's smart and gets good grades while also winning academic competitions But a painful break up with her boyfriend Jacob led to bouts of depression and she received treatment for that depression and has moved on Now though she's starting to remember things that make no sense and as she investigates further she learns of her own involvement with a planned act of terrorism involving Cortexia the forgetting drug that her mother has developed and used to great success with those in the military suffering from PTSD As Brynn and her boyfriend Dex work to solve the mystery they encounter various twists and turns and Brynn learns that she cannot trust anyone even herself The book was fast paced and kept me guessing about the identity of the betrayer although after I finished it I was able to recognize the many hints or sour notes that should have warned me what was going on There were a few moments that didn't uite ring true but I enjoyed the book especially when thinking about how a drug such as this one could be used if it fell into the wrong hands
