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.

Review

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.

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

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the first installment in dark fantasy series for young adults.

Praise for The Night Weaver

“Stephen King’s It meets Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight in Snyman’s frightening story of horror and fantasy woven together to create a delectable tale of the macabre … romance and action. Snyman’s storytelling will have people lining up for the next book.” ~ School Library Journal

Teaser

      Whispers
ride on the wind. Distant childlike voices, gleeful, as if they’re on a
playground, swirl around the crone. The soft voices become louder until it
sounds like the children are playing right beneath Rachel’s bedroom window. The
Black Annis’ cloak suddenly shoots open and spreads out farther. Impossibly, it
somehow fills Rachel’s entire line of vision, revealing a collection of
ghostlike faces stacked one upon the other and side by side. Chubby-cheeked
cherubs avert their hollow gazes to stare at the Black Annis, forced smiles
twisting their features horrendously. The cloak continues unfurling to the
sides and the tally keeps climbing as new faces appear. Even if Rachel wanted
to study each collected child, in search of the missing children of Shadow
Grove, there are simply too many to count.
