SHADOW GROVE IS A PERFECTLY PLEASANT TOWN…
Shadow Grove isn’t a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don’t grieve, missing posters don’t line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.
Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn’t exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.
Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It’s up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.
The story begins with an the mystery behind the abduction of children in a small town called Shadow Grove. Not only are children are missing, certain mothers start acting weird and something evil is plaguing the small town. The teens in the story are the only ones who are concern about the missing children especially the main character Rachel Cleary who wants to help get the children back.
This book is a mixture of dark fantasy, horror, mystery and faeries in it. It introduces two realms – where there is a creature that was let into the human realm called The Night Weaver which is really scary and she causing a lot of havoc on the small town.
I really enjoy this book…it started out with a mystery and scary parts to the stories and then it went into the fae realm which brought together on solving the mystery of how, why and what was taking the children. The plot is intriguing and the writing flows nicely. The characters were well developed and are easily connected to.
About the Author

Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words – be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words
