Book Review: The Shadows by Alex North
The first third of the story was completely engrossing to me. I honestly couldn’t step away. I loved the uniquely supernatural elements that North chose to weave into a crime that was otherwise fairly ordinary.

I barely made it over the finish line with this one and could probably have not even read the last few chapters and felt similarly satisfied.
