I want to thank Emma at Damppebbles blog tours for inviting me on this tour and Panther Publishing for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Joe and his friends decide to go camping for his stag do but instead of a nice lad’s night out, they find something sinister and end up fighting for their lives. Who will survive?
Shadows of The Woods is a short sharp shock filled book!
There was plenty of fast paced action, adventure and horrifying scenes for any horror fan to get their teeth into.
This very much a monster driven story and my goodness the monsters were a little terrifying! I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I’m very wary of shadows now.
The book did contain the old camping in the woods trope but I feel the author made it their own and took a fresh spin on it.
There was quite a large cast of characters and with this being a novella, I felt we didn’t get to know the characters quite as well as I’d liked.
Shadows of The Woods is at times a gruesome and adventure packed novel that I genuinely couldn’t predict when I was reading it.
