Legion Of Bats
In a world governed by fear and corruption, a baby was born and immediately targeted for death. Hidden away in the rural West Virginia town of Tanner, Zoe Masterson grows up feeling like an outsider—just a little different from everyone around her. As bad becomes worse, she is arrested for arson and taken to a mental hospital, where she discovers nothing is as it seems.

Honestly the book was a slow start for me, but when I got into it I couldn’t put it down. I am usually one for anticipating authors moves. The thing I loved about the book was that some of the plot points caught me off guard! It was awesome. There are characters that are brother and sister that I never saw coming. Legion of Bats has a Young Adult style of writing with adult content, my favorite style of book. It has an easy flow with a good plot. The main character Zoe Masterson grows as a women and a person during her stay at Weston (the mental hospital). She finds out her whole existence is not what she thought it was, the people in her life are not who she thought they were and that she herself is not who she thought she was! I think the reason I love this type of plot is because when I was little I always secretly wished one day I would wake up and find out I was a witch (a good witch). LOL Zoe meets an awesome group of friends at Weston who accept her for who she is and a love interest or two (enter adult content :)). This new family helps her fight an evil enemy that she never knew she had and put their life on the line for her. My favorite thing about Legion of Bats is the constant underlying tone of acceptance. No matter what size, shape, color or species you are….you deserve acceptance. It’s a great read. I really hope Shadow Stephens turns this book into a series. It was totally unbelievable that this was her first book.
