The Darkness of Shadows

Natalie’s parents weren't the nurturing type—and she has the physical and emotional wounds to prove it. For sixteen years she’s hidden behind a wall of sarcasm and decadent desserts, but now her father is back, and she has only one thought: to kill him before he can hurt the family that took her in.

But there’s more to his darkness than even his own daughter can understand, and a gun is no defense against magic that can raise the dead.

It turns out those scars he left on Natalie’s back were more than just a sadistic hobby. Now her father demands that she finish a ritual so ancient, so terrifying, that even the vampires and werewolves are nervous.

Can anyone protect her?

My Impressions
I adore a great mystery/murder /horror book and Chris did not disappoint. I was hooked in right from the get go for a wild and crazy ride filled with demons, witches, vampires, werewolves and so much more. Natalie's parents are the worst kind imaginable. They had her to torment and use and to fulfill their own deep,twisted desires of power. The book was brutal to read in some sections due to how graphic the scenes are described and just as heartbreaking in others with the torment and lasting damage left behind. The plot was fantastic and the book flowed smoothly. The characters appear to be genuine and I adored the connections that Chris wrote in between Natalie, Val and Val's family.  Be prepared for alot of sarcasm that really brings the book to life. 

Rating 4-5
