It's not long before things start to go wrong. Reading the news, Paul learns another copycat has struck. His mother is distressed, insistent that there's something in the house. And someone is following him. Which reminds him of the most unsettling thing about that awful day twenty-five years ago.
It wasn't just the murder.
It was the fact that afterward, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again...

Alex North is a talented author. These last two books of his have blown me away and I devoured as fast as I could. The Shadows is his second novel and just as good (if not BETTER) than his first (The Whisper Man). I’m officially obsessed! I felt like that Shadows had a blend of Slenderman, Nightmare on Elm Street, and IT (for it’s coming of age aspects). It was so damn good! Is it to early to bed for the next book? Because I don’t know how I’ll be able to wait for another!
If you’ve read The Whisper Man and enjoyed it then you’ll definitely like this one. I can tell that Alex North has his own unique flair when it comes to writing and it’s visible (and apparent) in both novels. His books aren’t necessarily horror, but they are very creepy. One would think they are supernatural in nature but in this case, there’s much more than meet the eye. I love how he built this book up and shocked the hell out of us!
I don’t want to get into the plot all that much because there’s no sense in me doing that when you can read the blurb but I will say this: This is a part coming of age tale, part murder mystery, part psychological horror, and suspense. There are many layers to the story and reading it and becoming fully invested in the story is easy. I highly recommend it!
