really liked it

Like his other book “The Shady Corner”, this book “Shadowchild” by Matthew Williams is definitely not for the faint of heart or easily spooked… it is downright creepy and freaky and at times quite disturbing. So if you are into that ((which I totally am!)) then this is the book for you! I will say that it did take me some time to get into it… although it starts off with an interesting inciting incident (in the past), it slows afterwards as the author worked more on the characters and the situations … but then it starts to build at a slow simmer, leading to a full-on boil that is quite exciting. The way he uses language to create emotion and describe scenery is impressive, and the characters are believable and well developed with several interesting transitions. Very cool mythos and lore he uses and I like the blend of past and present. This book is a great length to read in a few sittings – if you can take it! I had goosebumps throughout. The ending seems like the door is open for more? Or maybe that’s just the way it is intended… to freak us out even more :-) Will look for more from Matthews in the future. Recommend for fans of dark paranormal, horror and suspense. Graphic content. Adults only.
