About Laura A. H. Elliott

I love writing about enchanted road trips, shadow worlds, and alien romance while eating lots of popcorn. I live in a tree house on the central California coast. After twenty-plus years as a freelance graphic designer/animator with clients including E! Entertainment Television and The Los Angeles Times, I crossed over into the world of non-fiction and followed my heart to the world of fiction.

I’m the author of the Shadow Series & the Starjump Series and Winnemucca, a small-town fairy tale and have a few upcoming releases this August and October which I’m really excited about.

In the beginning pages of Shadow Slayer Roxie and her best friend are Ally are getting on the bus for their first day of high school. They are both extremely nervous and have no idea what to expect from the place they've dreamed about being in since they were little. While waiting on the bus they meet a new girl named Wanda. At school while Roxie sulks about having no classes with any of her friends Wanda invites her to try out for the school play. At first Roxie doesn't want anything to do with Wanda or the play but she soon changes her mind when the teacher forces her.

Being in high school isn't at great as Roxie thought it would be. All of Roxie's friends seem to either have found new friends or is avoiding her like the plague. Then one day Roxie sees a 10! A ten on the hot factor of guys, a perfect and she's instantly caught in the beauty of his golden eyes. Lucky enough she gets cast as the girl who falls for him in the school play with the hottie playing the main role. Drew the ten seems just as drawn to Roxie as she is for him, but soon everything is going to become dangerous not only for Roxie's friends and family, but the world. For Planet Popular was only the beginning, and now the shadows want what they always have, a human life. Soon it'll be up to Roxie to decide the worlds fate when she finds she is the new Shadow Slayer.

Overall, this book I feel is still for the younger crowd. There wasn't as much Roxie speak as there was in 13 on Halloween. Shadow Slayer is full of many twists and turns that will leave you guessing the worlds fate until the very end.

Review by: KatesReads on Nov. 10, 2012 : (no rating)
"Shadow Slayer" is Book 2 of Laura A. H. Elliott's Shadow Series and it does not disappoint. We First met Roxie in "Thirteen on Halloween" when she astral-projected to Planet Popular. Now she's a high school freshman just trying to fit in to the new environment of high school.

She still wants to go back to Planet Popular to discover the mystery of the map; but, it seems that all is not right on Planet Earth. Her friends are acting strange and her "perfect ten" boyfriend, Drew, is almost to good to be true.

The shadows from Planet Popular want to be human more than anything and they are trying to take over Roxie's classmates. It will be up to her to slay the shadow on her 14th birthday - Halloween.

I love Roxie's character. She's matured since the last book but is still caught up in all the drama of starting high school and trying to fit in. Elliott has made her a very believable young woman that anyone can relate to. The mystery of what is happening to her classmates is well developed.

This is a very engaging YA series and I can't wait to find out what happens to Roxie next!

"Shadow Slayer" is a fun fast paced YA novel with tons of action. Laura pens her characters lovable and believable in the second book of the series. You really need to read the first book in the series "13 on Halloween" before this book or you will be a bit lost. Recommended for all YA readers.
