The Shadows of Foxworth Review coming soon. I hadn t read the two previous Dollanganger books but didn t feel that I would need to, and I didn t feel lost.The problem is the writing is dull I couldn t get on board with the fact the pacing was slow, and that made it hard to want to continue reading I know that the books aren t written by Andrews, but this feels so different than any of the previous books in the original series, that it just doesn t fit in line with it Some people might enjoy this one, but it wasn t for me. This might be the worst book I have ever read or at least tied for last place Speaking as a writer, a literary critic, and an editor withthan 20 years of experience in bookselling and publishing, I feel confident saying that this book went straight from the author to the proofreader without an editor laying a hand on it I am new to the Dollanganger Saga I am, in fact, using quarantine as an opportunity to acquaint myself with these books I somehow managed to not read when all my friends This might be the worst book I have ever read or at least tied for last place Speaking as a writer, a literary critic, and an editor withthan 20 years of experience in bookselling and publishing, I feel confident saying that this book went straight from the author to the proofreader without an editor laying a hand on it I am new to the Dollanganger Saga I am, in fact, using quarantine as an opportunity to acquaint myself with these books I somehow managed to not read when all my friends were reading them in the 80s I found Flowers in the Attic diverting enough to move onto Petals in the Wind What I m saying is that I think my expectations for this book were realistic, and I was eager to check this out when I got a free galley But The Shadows of Foxworth doesn t even succeed as trashy fun I found it unreadable Thank you to Netgalley, and Galley books for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.I have been reading ALL V.C Andrews books since the beginning, they slowly went downhill after Ms Andrews passed Since I had such loyalty to her and her works I have kept reading, but I think it s time to let it go.. I know that this isn t V.C Andrews writing this book and I can t figure out why Andrew just didn t put it in his own name saying like based off of or something like that I m sure the fans would still love these books Yes, the writing style is a bit different but so what Doesn t mean I can t still enjoy it and trust me I loved every minute of it.I ve been a fan of this author since the flowers in the attic and have been hooked ever since I thought Andrew has done a fabulous job in following I know that this isn t V.C Andrews writing this book and I can t figure out why Andrew just didn t put

storyline and I really liked the history behind this weird family and how they got like this.I m like another reader who can t wait until it comes out in print so I can add it to my collection of her other books I know this book isn t for everyone and I will still highly recommend it because there are a lot of folks who will want read this book I thought the title of this book lived up to it s name perfectly My thanks to Netgalley for an ARC copy of this book All opinions are my own I received a free copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads3 Stars Shadows of Foxworth is the eleventh installment of the Dollanganger series Can it be read as a standalone No, absolutely not The entire series must be read in order However, I m unsure if the reader would benefit from reading

entire series must be read in order However, I m unsure if the reader would benefit from reading the original novels AFTER these new novels, where they predated them in the series As always, I must reaffirm that only the original novels in the series were written by VC Andrews My entire lifetime, other than reading Virginia Andrew s previously released original novels, every new novel I ve read was written by ghost writer, Andrew Neiderman Late 80s onward If you ve enjoyed those novels, they have been consistently written by the same author VC Andrews is an entity A product brand Not the author herself The writer author of this novel is Andrew Neiderman, as have been at least 40 novels previously Now I m going to admit something that will spark shock in fans Flowers in the Attic was my least favorite of the novels, and its series as well With that being said, I ve read all of the prequels But I wish, truly wish, if we re going to expand an original series, ANY of the other series would have been my preference I connected to the other stories , but the creepy factor truly does make for a suspenseful read Of the three newer novels, this is my least favorite I adore the dark gothic feel of these novels, the era lending a strong mysterious vibe The secrets and lies, the skeletons in the closet How abuse shapes the characters Going back generations, readers learn the journey in which it made it acceptable to lock four children in an attic until their mother received her inheritance, when her father was still alive These prequels explore how the characters were susceptible to connecting to members of their own bloodlines The novels also showcase how history repeats itself, the dark secrets almost written into their DNA Am I avoiding the giving a rundown of the plot Yes This is quite possibly the last novel in the series I don t wish to ruin anything for a reader by giving a rundown, when everything is entwined within the novels before it Shadows of Foxworth felt slower in pacing than the others, nothing truly capturing my interests The gothic feel wasn t as dark as the previous installments The excitement level was low, not hooking me There weren t any major twists and turns or mysteries.I highly recommend to fans who have been following this journey Reluctantly recommend to fans of Virginia Andrews, those who haven t read any novels past the mid 1980s, as none of those are her original works To this day, Dawn is my favorite of the new novels My Sweet Audrina is my favorite of the original novels I have been reading V.C Andrews books since they first came out in November of 1979 I am proud to say that I own every single book that was put out in print There are a few that are only available in ebook form and those I have not

writer named Andrew Neiderman began writing the rest in 1986 Shadows of Foxworth is book 11 in the series and I believe it s going to be the last This was a story that goes back in time and tells of the life of Corrine Dixon who was the grandmother to Corrine Foxworth I really enjoyed reading this because I m always interested in learningabout this very strange, incestuous family Some might describe these stories as gothic and I think that for the most part they are At any rate, I have loved them all right from the beginning and will continue to buy and read every book I can with this authors name on it I like that the author has written these 11 books covering the different generations of this family to give us readers the entire picture of what this family went through and understand why they did what they did Sometimes they acted out of love but sometimes it was just pure greed and selfishness Regardless, I find the stories to be riveting and this one was as well I m looking forward to publication day so I can buy my physical copy to add to my collection I d like to thank NetGalley and Gallery Books for giving me the opportunity to read and review the arc I give this book a 5 star rating I enjoyed this book the most out of these newest three Foxworth family books, but that s not saying much Marlena is a very naive and innocent character, a trope for most VC

but it was all stopped in time and I appreciated that Only two stars STOP WRITING THIS GARBAGE It is okay to admit defeat Retire Go enjoy the view Stop writing these books.
