Long Shadows: A brand-new gripping supernatural thriller (Elizabeth Cage, Book 3) Kindle Edition
BOOK 3 IN THE GRIPPING SUPERNATURAL SERIES BY THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE CHRONICLES OF ST MARY'S
I don't know who I am. I don't know what I am.
The identity of Elizabeth Cage has always been a mystery. Even she doesn't know who, or what, she is. But she's learned to live with it.
Until now, when what should have been a peaceful holiday turns into anything but, and Elizabeth is forced to recognise that she isn't what she seems.
But neither is anyone else. Has her whole life been a lie?
Someone very badly wants to know the truth about Elizabeth Cage. And they'll do anything to find out. But who will live to regret it?
Twisty, dark and incredibly gripping, the Elizabeth Cage novels are perfect for fans of Sarah Painter and Genevieve Cogman.

About the Author
Jodi Taylor is the internationally bestselling author of the Chronicles of St Mary's series, the story of a bunch of disaster prone individuals who investigate major historical events in contemporary time. Do NOT call it time travel! She is also the author of the Time Police series - a St Mary's spinoff and gateway into the world of an all-powerful, international organisation who are NOTHING like St Mary's. Except, when they are.
Alongside these, Jodi is known for her gripping supernatural thrillers featuring Elizabeth Cage together with the enchanting Frogmorton Farm series - a fairy story for adults.
Born in Bristol and now living in Gloucester (facts both cities vigorously deny), she spent many years with her head somewhere else, much to the dismay of family, teachers and employers, before finally deciding to put all that daydreaming to good use and write a novel. Nearly twenty books later, she still has no idea what she wants to do when she grows up.

So why the 3-star rating?
I'm a voracious reader. Often my purchase decisions are swayed by the length of a book, especially if it's an author I don't yet follow. To my way of thinking, a novel of less than 300 pages has either not had the plot and/or characters fully developed, or the story line is truncated to facilitate the production of an endless series, based predominantly on sales. If you're not yet a Jodi Taylor fan, then you need to know there's a little padding or false advertising in the book description!
It's not a 379-page novel. Try less than 300.
The prologue begins on page 13. The book ends on page 302. The remaining 77 pages (and that's a lot, Jodi...shame on you for letting this happen), are multi-page adverts for her other books.
I read once that before even getting Book One of her Harry Potter series published, the author knew it would flesh out into a 7-book series. And despite pressure from adoring fans and her publisher, she stuck to that. Now her series is iconic. Jodi, channel that in your future series, because I can tell you WILL be writing profusely as long as you draw breath. When a story comes alive and you just know it will be a series, let the PLOT decide the length of that series, nothing else. In the end you'll elevate your writing into a whole new level of proficiency, and that will attract more readers.
Thus, I'm not saying don't buy this book, especially if you've liked the series so far. Just be aware that it's not as long as you hoped, for whatever reason you decide fits.
And Jodi? Next time put a one-page listing of your series and stand-alones at the start of a book, a la Nora Roberts. Not a 77-page embarrassment.
I must have read each book twice, just for the pure pleasure of “visiting” the characters who’ve begun to seem like old friends. Real smart ass friends, but
guys you’d like to know for real. (Even though we’re
not supposed to call it “time travel”, it is just that. The thing that distinguishes it is the historical education you get that leaves you googling the events to learn more).
This book isn’t time travel but it is sci-fi. It’s a wholly different story line than the above St. Mary’s
setting. Taylor’s got a way with snappy, funny dialogue that is hard to pull off, but really separates it from serious, geeky sci-fi. It’s a talent
that carries over to this second, new, series.
This more recent series, featuring Elizabeth Cage, is looking like another winner for Jodi Taylor. This is
about the third (?) book so far and I’m betting it will
turn out to have over a dozen books in this series if it’s like her successful St. Mary’s stories.
Elizabeth Cage can see auras unique to individuals and their moods or characters. We can see where
this is going, maybe, but maybe not. I pre-ordered
this book as I do for anything written by Jodi Taylor.
I hope she gives us as many years of enjoyment with Elizabeth Cage as she did with “Max” in St. Mary’s .

I look forward to more books in this series, I’m hooked !
Great characters; the banter between Cage and Jones is enormous fun!
The second half of the book it all changes and we're into dark times. It's a sign of great writing when you're so involved with story that I only then thought " what the hell is happening?! "
I have it four stars instead of five because I found this book rather unsettling- that may be just me!
That said, it was a great story; Taylor's imagination is a true joy! Looking forward to the next book; whatever it may be!
