Summary

He was not sure what he had been looking for. He only knew that he had not found it.

Shadow Moon has been away from America for nearly two years. His nights are broken with dangerous dreams. Sometimes he almost believes he doesn't care if he ever returns home.

In the Highlands of Scotland, where the sky is pale white and it feels as remote as any place can possibly be, the beautiful and the wealthy gather at a grand old house in the glen. And when the strange local doctor offers him work at the party, Shadow is intrigued. He knows there is no good reason for him to be there. So what do they want with him?

Has some interesting ideas and characters. Reading wasn't always enthusiastic but overall good book. An interesting follow on from American Gods.

Wonderfully dark story telling.

A mash up of fairy tales and reality. Who's to say it's not true? Here's hoping.

Great story and wonderful narration.

A really good listen, like all Neil Gaiman's work. The new Dickens. A gifted storyteller.

Old half remembered characters and new fiends dance around the truth on a Scottish hillside.

Wonderful short story.

Neil Gaiman books are always a wonder to listen too and this story certainly captures the imagination. And an extra treat that this was read by the man himself. I had to listen to the entire book in one go.
