Publisher's Summary

When I was three years old, I was found homeless in the woods, alone and feral.   

When asked how I survived all of those years by myself, I had one answer: the Shadow Man. I have no memory of that time. No memory of anything, really, before the accident. I rely on stories from my fathers about this supposed imaginary friend. Got into a fight at school? The Shadow Man made me. Stole from a store? He forced me to. Snuck out of the house? He came with me.   

I had almost completely forgotten about him. Until I move into the horror house - the house rumored to be a gateway to hell. Strange things keep happening, and I am helpless to prevent them. More importantly, people keep dying. Particularly, people that harm me.   

It's already a struggle to survive a new high school and town (including the attention of a dangerous gang), but now I have to survive ghosts, too? One thing becomes painstakingly clear:  

The Shadow Man wants me to come home.   

Contains mature themes.

What?

That is so wrong. What kind of ending is that! It's not a real ending at all.

This book was awesome!

I don't usually go for horror stories but I wasn't able to stop listening. The performance was excellent. I had chills running down my spine! The FMC was so real. I swear that she was me as a teenager.

Just no

I could not get into this audiobook. Hated the narration, story was sooooo slow. No idea what’s going on with them men.. is this gonna be RH? No clue to be honest. Saw great reviews but I have no words to describe the disinterest I have in this story. Definitely not horror in my opinion. Maybe I should read it instead of audio because I just can’t continue this series like this.

I hate cliffhangers...

A god story, but a bit dissapointing that it is a cliffhanger, you have to read the next book, to make sense of everything. I am left as onde Big questionmark.
