it was amazing

I have read several of Darren Shan’s YA books over the years. This might seem strange, me clutching at my forties for sheer death. Maybe Old Adult might best suit me! I find his YA horror books short and snappy, sharp-fanged critters that sink their teeth in quickly. I didn’t really fancy reading his adult books, thinking I might be disappointed. But with Lady of the Shades I was far from disappointed.

Lady of the Shades centres around American horror writer Ed Sieveking and how he falls in love for the enigma that is Andeanna Menderes, wife of the criminal lord known as the Turk. He has a close friend/fan called Joe and they decide to plot a new novel together while he is visiting the UK. Ed has a dark past and appears to be haunted my mysterious ghosts (shades): the same handful spectres that are with him always.

Ad learns that Andeanna’s husband is a wife-beater… but all is not as it seems.

This novels twists and turns so often that just when you think you know what is going Mr Shan hits you with another twist to the plot.

Great read!
