    Excellent "Bump in the Night" Thriller!

    Forest of Shadows by Hunter Shea introduces you to the world of the paranormal and the mysteries that surround it. Shea manages something many have a struggle with. He grips you from the first paragraph and seamlessly moves from an edge of your seat scene to the everyday happenings of a regular 9-5 couple. Through the studies and work of John Backman the lead character in the story – I learned a lot more about the paranormal than I ever imagined. Never before could I have imagined there was science behind some of the claims and explanations out there about ghosts, monsters and things like the Loch Ness Monster. You immediately fall in love with John and his plight in life. As dubious as you may be about paranormal things (I am a “nonbeliever”) you will cheer him on in his search for answers. At the same time, you will want to smack him upside the head and tell him to let go and move forward in life. Nothing can change the past.

    The loss of his wife, the guilt of an argument right before her death, the struggle of raising their daughter alone (who happens to practically be a clone of her mom) and the uncertainty of it all pressing around him are enough to make the story amazing – add in a few ghosts and stories of terror and you have a best seller.

    I was truly impressed with Shea’s ability to meld together two different story lines into one amazing novel. His storytelling ability is incredible and his characters are deep, realistic and the kind you want to get to know and leave the novel wishing they were real. With excellent descriptive scenes that flowed smoothly and dialogue that fit the scenes without seeming fake or forced, Shea turned me into a “bump in the night” fan when I didn’t think it was possible!

    I give this book 5 stars easily. More if it was possible. My only objections to the book have more to do with language and adult content than the quality of writing. Although I don’t mind reading mature content, it generally isn’t my favorite. There are several scenes in which language or sexual content were more than I would typically recommend. So, if you are sensitive to those things – this isn’t the book for you. I would also say I would be hesitant to recommend to younger readers. It is an adult book in many ways and although there are some teenagers I wouldn’t have a problem recommending it to – they would definitely be in the older teen years. Not for your young teen who likes ghost stories at all. Otherwise – I truly look forward to future books put out by Shea in this genre.

    Flowerfire |Clan meeting|

    She jumped onto the High-Branch and yowled, "all cats old enough to catch their own prey gather beneath the High-Branch! I have sad news... - Hawkstar has passed on! We of course will still be continuing on with Hawkclan, and as his deputy, i will be taking over as leader of Northclan, and co-leader of Hawkclan!" She smiled as she ended the meeting, purring, "Long Live Hawkclan!"

    Hawkstar ~| Ceremonies! |~

    Hawkstar jumped up into the High Branch, taking a seat and turning to face his Clan. "All cats old enough to catch their own prey, gather beneath the High Branch for a Clan meeting!" The dark brown tabby watched his Clanmates gather below, his eyes scanning the crowd for Thrushsong and her kits. Spotting them, he gave a curt nod. "We gather today for a special ceremony. A Ceremony in which three youngsters take their first step into apprenticeship." A shadow crossed his face as if he had an evil thought going through his head, and a small grin crept onto his face. "Now, Dovekit, Dawnkit, and Ebonykit, please step forward!" He watched the three kits step forward, before meowing, "Dovekit, you are now Dovepaw! Your mentour will be Mstyfang! Mistyfang, pass on your quick thinking and loyalty to Dovepaw." "Dawnkit, you are now Dawnpaw! Your mentour will be Flowerfire! Flowerfire, pass on your vast knowledge and stealthyness to Dawnpaw." (I almost said evilness xD) "Ebonykit, you are now Ebonypaw! Your mentour will be Lapsablaze. Lapsablaze, pass on your determination and great hunting skills onto this apprentice." He nodded. "Meeting dismissed!" He jumped down, listening to the cheers of the cats.

    AshFoot

    AshFoot padded in, his head held high. "Hello!" He meowed, dipping his head swiftly. "May I join Shadowclan? If you are in search of a deputy, I want to earn it." He asked, than added the second part of his thoughts.

    Great read. Supernatural fans will love it!

    Truly enjoyed this book. Author did a really fine job of setting up the characters and plot. The story was exciting and easy to follow with just enough supernatural to make it truly interesting. Would recommend this book to any who enjoys a good ghost story! Have just added another Hunter Shea book to my Nook library and am anxious to read. I think there will be more of his books added soon!
