Blurb; Idyllic memories?
A perfect childhood?
A secret buried for thirty years…
None of us could remember why we drifted apart – we were always so close at school…
That was thirty years ago, and I hadn’t thought of my school friends in all that time – it was like they’d never existed.
Then the dreams started. Dreams that I knew I’d had before. Horrific dreams of fear and fire and death.
Dreams of a ghostly urban legend who seemed to hang over my home village like an evil spirit – the Shadow Man.
I’d begun to remember, and I knew we had to go back.
What happened to us back then?
Do we really want to know?
Are we ready to face the Shadow Man again?
My Review; From the first page this story had me hooked and extremely intrigued! It’s a brilliant story, the first I have read by this author. It’s dark in parts. Descriptive. I think this would be perfect to aim at the younger adults Genre.
The story flicks between the past (then) and the present (now) alot, but each chapter is clearly labelled so causes no confusion. Its a brilliant horror/thriller with plenty of twists. It kept me guessing and turning those pages! It’s a fast paced, edge of your seat seat. I enjoyed every minute of it. A look into how reliable our memories really are. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Cannot wait to read more by this author in the future.
