#BookReview: Shadow City by @anna_mocikat

Synopsis: Los Angeles is an apocalyptic wasteland. The few survivors of a horrific catastrophe live under the constant threat of radiation, mutated creatures, and worse... lurking in the shadows.

In the ruins of the deserted city, the scavengers Jean and Louis come across a nameless stranger and bring him to the only safe zone, once known as Hollywood. What’s left of society is divided among different factions; mistrust, brute force, and anarchy rule every day’s life. 

If the struggle for survival wasn’t bad enough, the nuclear disaster has shifted realities as we knew them and brought something into our world which threatens to exterminate the human race. Something so dark, that every living being is horrified of it. Something that feeds on suffering and violence.

But humans aren’t alone in this existential fight. Unexpected allies emerge from the shadows and in the final stand, the nameless stranger will decide humanities fate.

"Shadow City is full of adventure, thrills, and twists and turns. The characters are fully realized, and the swift pace keeps the story moving along, so readers will likely find themselves turning pages in rapid succession." -IndieReader
"This exciting mashup of horror and action-adventure tropes is sure to have readers tuning in for the next installment."
 -Publishers Weekly

"There are aspects of fantasy, science-fiction, horror, and dystopia, and all blended in a way that paints H. R. Giger's nightmarish world (...) Mocikat demonstrates her gift for injecting terror into her stories that cut to the core of our common fears and frailties."
- Authors Reading

"It's almost film-like and a lot of the sequences made me feel I was watching an exciting blockbuster movie."
-Matthew Keeley
Author of "Turning the Hourglass"

"In the new book Shadow City, Los Angeles is something straight out of an apocalyptic nightmare."
