One Girl. One Boy.
And the Masters of Darkness.
See the Shadow Creatures.
They are everywhere.
But you can’t run from the shadows.
At the age of sixteen, Catherine lives with an alcoholic mother and impoverished welfare. While searching for a way to tell her only friend Nathan of her desire for him, a hidden world starts to unfold with the coincidental meeting of a man in black, Jorgen. With this encounter, questions arise and unexplained events start to occur, causing Catherine to confront her past and an uncertain future.
Upon graduating High School, Nathan cooks at a local bar wondering how he can leave town with the girl he’s fallen in love with, Catherine. All seems hopeless until a man in black, Artros, introduces himself offering power greater than all the money that drives the world.
Ancient enemies with the power to control the Darkness and its Shadow Creatures, two Masters will fight to the death for what one girl may hold – the ultimate power of Light.
A wonderfully disturbing read! The author made me think of my own hometown and how hard it can be to escape such a black hole. Mill towns are the perfect setting for a horror novel, and Eveland delivered with exceptional precision.
Catherine comes off a little creepy at first, but after a while it’s hard not to like her. The traumatic life this young woman has to endure is heartbreaking, and her resolve is incredible. Nathan is a sweet young man who’s easy to relate with and very lovable. These characters and their story become rather addicting as friends become foe, and unimaginable creatures fill their lives with darkness.
I received a copy of this novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
