[My review is for the audiobook format.]

Something happened to all the adults in Flip's world: they've all disappeared.

The kids scavenge for their survival, and try to eke out an existence by following their own set of rules. A malevolent force is lurking in the swamps surrounding Flip's city, and it's anyone's guess when (and who) it might strike next.

3.5 out of 5 stars

The Shadow King is a story about a group of young kids who are trying to survive in a world that has been taken over by "shadows". They must do whatever it takes to survive in the wasteland of a world.

A book that's over before it even begins. I think this would be a good "episode 1" or "book 0.5" in a full series. Granted there are some things that you wouldn't want to come out in the first book that came out in this book.

I do enjoy short
