Overview

Rose Gray is troubled, and has always been alone. When she reunites with her long lost sister, Sonnet, her mental fragility snaps to the point of murder. Sonnet has all but given up on her now. Circumstances - beyond unusual and strange - have made Rose the way she is; for not only can she travel through eras, she can decide where to go. For a perfectly sane girl, this could be a gift: for Rose, it could be danger for anyone she has ever had the misfortune of meeting. A childhood with gypsies, an apprenticeship with a dark man, and a love affair with a dangerous boy, are what's normal for Rose - as is time spent in Bedlam.

Lizzie is an orphaned nurse, resigned to a life of changing bedpans and fluffing pillows at the world's most notorious insane asylum. Finding an old diary proves a welcome distraction from a medical world who doesn't take nurses too seriously in 1931. But falling into the world of the diary's author, Rose Gray, Lizzie is swept into an ever deepening mystery; one that could leave her just another victim. Because, although the diary in Bedlam hospital may be old, Rose is not. And she never really left.

This is my favorite in the lost series. Also the creepiest. I read this book so fast because I needed to figure out where the author was going with this story. Loved the end.

Officially one of my 2 all time favorites. This book is amazing and will leave you satisfied. I recommend this to anybody who enjoys mystery and a bit thriller as well as Jane Eyre... enjoy!

After reading Shadows Gray, I expected Shadows Falling to continue where Gray left off. I was incredibly surprised that it does nothing of the sort but, rather, takes you deeper into some other characters from the book. This was a difficult book to put down. It kept me wanting more, curious, on my toes, sometimes confused (but in a good way!) and always on the edge of my seat! Again, imagery in the Shadows series is not hard to find through the author's amazing attention to details that make you

    Shadows falling is masterfully written, entirely suspenseful, ja

    Shadows falling is masterfully written, entirely suspenseful, jaw-dropping, yet believable. Melyssa Williams does a great job of enthralling the reader, making the mind do flip-flops, and ends with a mind-bending surprise! Couldn't put it down & can't wait for book 3!!!
