Summary

Don’t think about it...don’t talk about it...and if you feel a prickling on the back of your neck...don’t turn around!

Matt Hardison doesn’t believe in the Shadowstealer, an evil spirit that could steal a person’s shadow and demand they sacrifice pieces of themselves. It was just a local boogeyman, a gruesome campfire yarn to frighten youngsters; not something that adults took seriously.

The Shadowstealer is Matt’s new novel, a bestseller featuring the creepy legend that frightened him as a child. However, Matt has forgotten one very important thing about the Shadowstealer: it can only claim your shadow if you believe in it...and his new book has just created thousands of believers....

Sometimes A Novel Can Be Much More

This is a novel about a story that transcends the page to reap its evil intent on those who believe in it. The characters are all wonderfully created and we are immersed into their world. The tension is slowly ramped up as we begin to understand what is happening around and to the characters. The tale is very well told with a narration that adds too, rather than detracts from, the telling. This is a very enjoyable book, perhaps best listened to with the lights on to keep the shadow away.

Let there be dark.

This was a good book.I enjoyed it.I was waiting for some horror,and it finally came! Ancient words told by mouth are brought back to haunt us when written down. Jeffrey Lynn Hutchins was a fine narrator.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Scared of your own shadow

I was given this book for a honest review. The story starts really slow, which I kind of imagine is because the characters are tending it to be that way. There is a lot of characters to track and I found myself more than once saying..which one was that? Please do keep with the story...it gets kind of deep and spooky. Like religious deep. I really liked the story but took a while to get there, so be patient and it is worth it. Does make you do some thinking haha.

Confused

I had a hard time with this book. The story seemed to drag on forever. The narrator was what kept me listening. When the story finally picked up toward the end, it was good. Just wish it hadn’t taken so long to get to the scary stuff.

Good concept, hard to get through.

Narrator good, southern dialect good. Got lost with the different characters. The creature, the dark, was better than most. Gore, adequately portrayed. Shades of King. Ending abrupt, like this review...
