I enjoy survival horror -- not the slasher/splatter variety; but I also appreciate stories like THE SHADOW PEOPLE that toy with common fears. When I was a kid, darkness terrified me. As an adult, I'm still known to keep a light or two on in the evenings when I'm alone -- if only to keep from stubbing my toe. But I've never considered the possibility of my own shadow taking on a life of its own and committing atrocious acts of violence. Erin Cole's imagination is a wonderful thing, and in THE SHADOW PEOPLE she'll take you on a journey with her character Kori Anderson that you've never experienced before. With Halloween on the way, this would make the perfect read some dark night with only your flashlight to keep you company.
