My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Note: I got a free copy in exchange for a review.
With all anthologies, there are some stories people love and some that don’t grab you as much. Each story had a paranormal twist and, as the title suggests, many had references to shadows in them. There were plenty of interesting characters and some nice twists thrown in. Among my favorites where the story about a mysterious “maker” who fixes things for the people in his town, a ghost bent on revenge against his killers, a young princess looking to make her way out of the underworld–which made me think of Persephone–and a private investigator who rushes to save a young girl.
If you are looking for something to curl up with on a dark and stormy night, well… this one might not be such a good choice. LOL! If, however, you like to be kept on the edge of your seat, there is probably something in this one for you.
