Ok, wow. Ok. This book? This book is weirddddddd. The first half of this book had me in a headlock. I couldn’t put it down and I was dying to know what would happen next. The book posits a world in the near future where people begin to loose their shadows in an unexplained world-wide phenomenon. Then, these shadowless people begin to suffer from severe memory loss which result in surreal consequences.

Weird, right? The books follows a collection of characters, some are looking for lost loved ones, some are leading factions of resistance against zombie-like armies of shadowless people, some are just trying to hold on to what they know.

There’s a lot I liked about this book – the characters are well-rounded and incredibly diverse without being pandering. But, it quickly falls apart after about 60% of the way through. The plot loses direction culminating in a bombshell ending that feels hollow, pointless and confusing.
