In the college town of Isla Vista, California, small, odd things start happening. Science-geek Nicole notes the crows are leaving.  Meg Burdigal can’t find her tabby cat, Schrand. Brian the postman feels uneasy at the rustlings, the shadows he’s seen at the edge of his vision on his delivery route in town.  
Now Nicole sees fewer and fewer homeless in the park. Using her knowledge of biology and forensics, Nicole searches for answers—but will anyone take the horror she finds seriously? 
In this unusual thriller, ‘Watch the Shadows’, author Robin Winter explores where the ordinary slams against the extraordinary.
My Thoughts:

If you love reading scary stories, then this book will definitely be right up your alley!

One thing is for sure and it doesn't come right out and tell you that they may be aliens, but it implies they are and all I have to say is the way the author describes the way these "things" eat people is both detailed and fascinating. Don't know how authors have such an imagination but it does make the story much more scarier.

There are a few side stories as well with the main characters that breaks up some of the scary stuff and makes the book easier to read because it's not all guts and terror.

Happy Reading!
