I really liked this book! It grabbed me from the first few sentences and held me all the way to the end! I really thought at first that it was a man dressed in black that had taken the little girl but you soon learn that things don't seem to be what they are.
This is not a gory, blood thirsty kind of thriller, it doesn't have to be. The story is told in such a way that it doesn't need the scare tactics or the harsh bad language to tell the story, which actually makes it even more scary because it's told with such utter calmness, I think that is what made it such a spooky book to read!
You will definitely want to put this one on your to read list.
Happy Reading!

It's been a crazy week - lots of traveling - NC to Cali for my son's wedding - then back to NC to prepare for the east coast reception. Probably not the best time to be on tour. ;-) I just wanted to stop by and thank you for reviewing Of Dreams and Shadow! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the story! Thanks again!
