 Review: Shades of Twilight -Martin Sharlow.

It started as a normal hot summer day , Melissa and her two friends Sarah and Debbie hoping to cool off are spending the day at the local watering hole . It then moves to a scene similiar in Eclipse movie where Melissa is standing on an Eight-foot cliff ready to jump, nervous she goes for it . However , for Melissa -unlike her friends the jump causes a near-death experience for her, almost drowning. Melissa is then rescued by Michael. Michael is the hottest hunk that Melissa and her friends have ever met . Why would he be interested in Melissa, she is the type of girl who seems to hang back whilst her friends date all the hot guys. However, Michael has a dark secret, he is in fact a Vampire and out to protect Melissa from the evil surrounding her and coming to get her as Melissa too has a secret that has been yearning to be awakened. Will Melissa ad Michael work out their differences or will Melissa believe that Michael is just another jerk and this time one with a fantasy tale web of lies and will it be too late for Michael to save Melissa as trouble is thrust upon him?
For a fast-paced and thrilling tale of Urban Vampire Paranormal - Check out Martin Sharlow's Shades of Twilight , a book that I am looking forward to reading the sequel as the last page reads "TO BE CONTINUED".

Excerpt From "Shades Of Twilight" -

Can you spot the famous movie reference ?

The lights came back on in the theater, and still half the people hadn't left yet. The first portion got up and left the moment the credits came up, but the rest sat in their seats and talked about everything they'd just watched. A few of the last people leaving let their eyes linger on Michael as they walked out, but most didn't even seem to notice him any longer. I guess they were more wrapped up in their new world of vampires and werewolves. I couldn't blame them, really. Bella's world looked all romantic and fun. Somehow even with a horde of vampires trying to kill her, the movie seemed to make it a cool thing. I realized that, had I been Bella and that was my life, it wouldn't seem so cool anymore. At the moment, though, it did. Her romanticized life seemed preferable to mine, and yet a part of me knew I wouldn't leave mine right now even if it were possible.

I looked over at Michael to see him sitting there staring at me. I wondered what he was thinking, if he thought I was his Bella, or was he just amused that I had the need to escape into fantasy. I noticed a kernel of popcorn stuck on his shoulder, then one in his hair, and couldn't help wonder how they got there."Are we done yet?" He asked with a bit of hope in his eyes. "Or are we going to go get another ticket and watch it again?"He looked so adorable right now, just sitting there with popcorn in his hair. I wasn't sure what it was or why he so appealed to me right then, but without thinking I found myself pressing my lips against his silky soft ones. His lips warmed to the touch of mine, as we kissed.

About the Author : Martin Sharlow

Martin Sharlow was always a storyteller. In his youth he used to play roleplaying games and usually he was the game master. That allowed him to create and modify stories and then tell them to his captive audience in the form of a game. Because of this and the many fantasy books he read, Martin went the next step and started writing fantasy novels.

Recently, however, Martin changed genres to vampire romance as he got bitten by the vampire bug. This happened after picking up one of the latest novels and finding himself hooked on it. Today Martin has written two vampire romance novels, and is in the process of writing many more.
Martin currently lives in Vancouver, WA with two of his three children, who help to keep him grounded in reality.You can visit Martin Sharlow at http://www.wix.com/targoun/martin
