Author: L. M. Smith
Imagine a town where you can stay out as late as you want, wake up when it suits you, you never have to go to work, and everything is free for the taking. Sounds perfect right? But what if you can’t remember where you are or how you got there? What if you can’t ever leave? And what if the only other people around are hostages, just like you? Would you still want to stay?
Jasmine Marshall certainly didn’t think so until she met Justin Beck; a dashing active-duty member of the United States Army and fellow hostage. With him around life in Kolob might not be so bad after all … or so she thought. There are vampires and psychics at the breakfast table! Disturbing acts of torture and senseless violence are commonplace. Biochemical warfare is a very real threat, and the town’s mayor is an elusive mad-scientist obsessed with his own theories about December 21, 2012!
In a place where one has everything to gain and nothing to lose, one thing reigns true: nothing in Kolob is ever as it seems.
The Citizens by L.M. Smith is unlike any book I have read. Its a mixture of romance, suspense, and keeps the reader guessing throughout the book. The main character, Jasmine wakes up in an unfamiliar town surrounded by people she doesn't know. The town she's in seems perfect ...almost too perfect. Over time she learns to enjoy the company of those around her while they try to formulate a plan for an escape.
I very much so enjoyed this read. I couldn't guess what was to come which made me read more. I read this book in one sitting. I give it a five ***** star review.
