Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite "Shadowman" by Aaron Dennis begins in New Orleans when a young man, who has been partying with his friend, goes out into the street to get some more alcohol. He witnesses a killing in an alleyway, and his entire world changes in that moment. When he wakes, his body is covered with bandages that show evidence of injuries, and an elderly woman is nursing him back to health. She explains to him that the victim he saw was her grandson who was a shadowman. When he died, he passed his power into the young man, who now must seek his own answers to survive. I was blown away by this book. I ended up reading just a little bit at a time to spread out the experience. The author acknowledges the admiration he has for Carlos Castenada, and his work shows much of the depth and profundity of that author's work, while retaining freshness and originality. The journey Adja undertakes is momentous, and the beings he meets along the way, both his allies and those who seek to destroy him, are compelling and real. I really enjoyed the rituals and ceremonies performed by Adja in "Shadowman". Dennis is never overly descriptive or wordy, and gently nudges his reader into the reality of each scene. This little book is deceptively small. But though there are not that many pages in the text, the world the reader discovers himself in is very large indeed.
Bone-chillingly Dark and Mysterious Played out in the Creole world of New Orleans, this book is bone-chillingly dark and mysterious. Adja, an impressionable young man, finds himself transformed into the Shadowman, in a voodoo ceremony. As Adja is met with otherworldly beings in a fight to protect the natural world, he must show is abilities, courage and strength to defeat them. Every battle he incurs is intense and exciting, building the anticipation. Written with great detail, the author paints a haunting picture of a dark, taboo culture and lifestyle that readers will lose themselves in and love. I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Follow the rollercoaster adventures of Adja, a young man inadvertently caught up in a web of voodoo and mystique in the colorful Creole backdrop of New Orleans. Mystically transformed into a shadowman, he reluctantly enters combat with “otherworld” enemies of the spirit domain. Escalating contests increase tension to unbearable levels as the Shadowman joins forces with a conglomeration of powerful spirits to battle evil otherworld adversaries to protect the world as we know it. Dennis skillfully crafted each member of Adja’s force with their own intriguing powers and surrounded them in an unearthly atmosphere that amplifies the tension of this story. If you are looking for a chilling ride into the dark side of the voodoo underworld, Shadowman is a must read. I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review.
