Review: The Shadowing: Hunted by Adam Slater

Adam Slater has managed to take folk lore into a very scary direction. His demons are not pretty boys in need of rescuing. There is no teen angst, no love story, no "mush" to get in the way of the real story. I loved it! It is very well written, although many of our American readers may be distracted by the use of British slang. For me it added flavor, just that little bit of spice, and I am glad they chose to leave it instead of Americanizing it. This book series, unlike many other YA novels that have come out recently, is perfect for any gender. That in itself makes this worthy of a read.

From Amazon:
Once every century, the barrier between the human world and the demon realm begins to break down. Creatures gather, anxiously waiting to cross the divide, to bring death and destruction from their world to ours. This time is called The Shadowing.

Callum Scott has always known that there is a supernatural world out there—he’s seen ghosts for as long as he can remember. Lately, he’s had visions of children being brutally murdered by a terrifying creature. Then the visions start coming true, and Callum realizes that he’s being hunted, too.

Driven by a dark destiny, he must stand against the demons that threaten our world.

And The Shadowing is almost here. . . .
The Shadowing: Hunted

Five stars!
