After reading The Shadows, i will pick up anything by Alex North.
Maybe this doesn't need to be said but - if you are in the mood for a light, fluffy, fun read, this is not the book for you right now.
This is the dark spooky story I've been waiting for for a very long time. I listened to the audiobook version of this, and I have to say, even curled up under a blanket in the middle of the afternoon with all my blinds open letting light stream in - this book still gave me the chills. More than once. There is something so atmospheric about Alex North's writing. You feel unsettled right along with the characters. There is nothing outright SCARY about the book, but everything is so unsettling the entire time you read you feel like there is someone right behind you.
This story of childhood demons and nightmares haunting you as an adult gave me little hints of Slenderman and a grown up version of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. This is perfect if you ar elooking for something just a little spooky.
I'm actually reviewing this with about two hours left to go in the audiobook. I have no idea how it will end but I've absolutely enjoyed the ride to get here.
