The Pace by Shelena Shorts Review

Series: The Pace Series, Book 1
Lands Atlantic Publishing
Pages: 302 (Paperback)

Weston Wilson is not immortal and he
is of this world. But, aging is not part of his existence, and eighteen-year-old Sophie Slone is determined to find out why. In doing so, she could also uncover something about her own life expectancy that she may not want to know. Suddenly, immortality will mean everything and nothing all at the same time.

Surprisingly good read by new author Shelena Shorts. Ignorance got the best of me at first but never again I say!

The story is wicked awesome but reads nice and steady. I don't really like a very complex read and being that it's a science fiction novel, one would expect it to be just that but it's far from a drag. The suspense is excellent, these days ya fiction could get a little annoying and repetitive which would have me end up skipping pages...

But thank God for Shelena Shorts, she brought to life a marvelous story with clever, very likable characters.

Not only is Weston ageless, but in my opinion, near gosh can the man be anymore breathtaking. Sophie is one lucky gal but I don't envy her because one can't help but be intrigued by her. She's got a good heart and a strong mind but in a way she's still like everyone's easy to want know about a character when their thoughts and ways of doing things are so inspiring. However, the conjuring of such a character isn't so easy but Shelena does just that.

I was also impressed by the way Shelena Shorts intertwined the science fiction aspects of the novel with Weston's and Sophie's romance, the control she has in her writing is something to appreciate. By the way this story was put together, I can see the author's determination in making a well thought out story with catchy characters, original setting and good flowing dialog. Shorts is one sure debut author you can't miss.
