    Shadowy

    A very good book filled with an underlying current of unease. The author does a great job of making the unbelievable believable. I didn’t see the twists coming and, to me, that’s the best thing about a book.

    Dark, twisty and terrifying

    The Shadows' main character is Paul Adams who returns to his home of Gritten Wood after an absence of 25 years because his mother is in hospice, near her end. Paul left because of the horrifying murder of one of his friends by very disturbed teenagers, Charlie Crabtree and Billy Roberts. Billy confesses and is convicted, but Charlie, the instigator, disappears, never to be seen again. There are rumors that Charlie is hiding in The Shadows, the dark, sinister woods surrounding the town. There have been copycat murders over the years which fuel the idea that Charlie is still out there. This book is told through Paul's point of view but also that of Detective Amanda Beck who is investigating one of the copycat murders. The Shadows is an absolutely compelling read with multiple twists, turns and revelations. It is chilling, spooky, creepy and terrifying and impossible to put down.

    The Shadows is another winner!

    I really loved The Whisper Man and this next book by Alex North does not disappoint! I think it is cool that the books are linked as well. It was a nice nod to the first book to have the Detective Amanda from Featherbank. Most of the book takes place in Gritten and the story is split into before and after. The before is when Paul is a kid and friends with James, Charlie, and Billy. They are trying the succeed in lucid dreaming and connecting with each other in dreams. It is fascinating and that part (since it is quite detailed) has actually inspired me to start my own dream journal. They grow apart though, especially when there is a murder in Gritten and Billy and Charlie are guilty. Charlie however disappears and is never seen again. The after part is 25 years later and there are copycat murders happening. Could it be Charlie, or something else? I don't want to give any spoilers, but it is a good story and has many twists to keep things interesting. I highly recommend it!

    Spine Tingling Good

    Paul Adams has avoided his hometown of Gritten as though his life depended on his absence from that dark, sinister place, but when his mother's dementia takes a turn for the worse, Paul must face his demons and return to the house he hasn't visited in twenty-five years. Unfortunately, even though Paul has desperately tried to forget the nightmares which plagued his existence as a teenager, the town of Gritten is not unforgiving. To Paul, the town feels frozen in time, with memories threatening to expose his secrets at every corner. Because when Paul was a teenager, his friends—led by the malicious Charlie Crabtree—committed a ritualistic murder which shook the town of Gritten right to its very core. Having an everlasting effect, the crime tainted the once quaint, safe town in a murky haze. With stories passed down through the generations, the townsfolk have never quite recovered from the blood spilled that day. With a steady string of copycat killers mimicking the heinous murder, Paul quickly discovers his past has not stayed buried and the crime has not been forgotten, even though he has spent the past quarter of a century attempting to do just that: forget. Much to his dismay, Paul can no longer suppress his emotions; his inner demons are alive, and his secrets are eager to smother every last bit of sanity he has managed to maintain. In The Shadows, Gritten welcomes Paul home, even if he is still desperate to escape it. Alex North's sophomore novel sets the stage for a thrilling, unputdownable read. Told in dual POV and dual timelines, The Shadows is a fast-paced novel, taking the reader right to the heart of what happened in Gritten all those years ago. The setting of Gritten provides the perfect dark, atmospheric mood for a shocking suspense novel. The small town is bleak, with an underlying sinister presence around every turn. In addition to the compelling setting, the narration is equally superb. The characters were incredibly well-developed and smartly written. Paul and his friends have unique personalities, all different in their own creepy way, and as the story progresses, each character is given the opportunity to really shine. Overall, The Shadows by Alex North is an immersive, enthralling tale about friendships, secrets, young love, and a mother's devotion to her child. A solid thriller with a touch of the supernatural, this twisty tale thrives on human emotions, so you might want to read with the lights on...

    Wow!

    Alternate timelines, alternate narratives, lucid dreams and twists and turns that leave you completely floored while sending you on a search of your memory or the previous pages to see where it all fits together, or to find where you lost sight of what was happening. Such an awesome story of myth, horror and a town's long unsolved (but not forgotten) crime. The cover is great and immediately caught my attention. Alex North nailed it with The Shadows, I regret not reading The Whisper Man yet and will be reading that as soon as possible. An author well worth your attention! The story evolves slowly, wraps up quite fast and intense with a nice, swift transition between the two. The Shadows is definitely a new favorite that I will be reading again
