The Citizens by L.M Smith

The Citizens (Jazz Nemesis #1)

Book Description (taken from goodreads):

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.

I was given this book by the author for my honest review!

My Opinion:

Where to begin with this book? How about AMAZING! It was also creepy at the same time. This small town of Kolob there are many secrets and many weird things going on. I mean really what would you do if you woke up in this town where you had no idea how you got there or where you are? Me personally, I would be freaking out. Then there was the thing with all the cameras. Who could deal with your every move being watch? The only upside of all of this is that everything is free, but I’m not sure if I would be ok with everything else through. This book got my attention from the very beginning and kept my attention til the end. Bad part about this book was that it kept me on the edge of my seat for a lot of parts! I even had my husband laughing at me because I would sit up really fast and he would ask me what’s wrong and I would go “shhh I’m at a good part”. I’m not sure if that’s even a bad part but it certainly was funny. L.M Smith is a talented author who wrote a book with twist after twist and didn’t give anything away til the end. All the questions in your head while reading this book wont be answered til the end. Trust me through that made the book!

On another note I would love for this book be made into a movie!!

Star Rating:
5 out of 5

  1. OMG! I so agree with you Jennifer! This book should SO be made into a would do awesome. The creepy little town with people from different walks of life. I could really see this as a movie I would DEFINITELY go see on the big screen! The Citizens is an incredible book and I could not have predicted the ending. I love things where I can't predict the outcome! LM Smith is an excellent author and I can't wait to read her next book!
