I enjoyed reading Shadow People. Elancharan Gunasekaran has made something really interesting here.
I loved some of the haikus. Other will probably take a few more reads to grow on me. I liked the overall vibes, though. I also liked the running theme of prowling shadows, (if they are real,) doing good or bad or just being there and doing something. It was interesting and atmospheric.

I've downloaded Shadow People to read again in the future and will likely return to the author for more.
