The story of A Step Into Darkness is a stellar one that had me intrigued from the very start. I love any story that features a horror and the paranormal, so I knew from the beginning that A Step Into Darkness would deliver thanks to this theme and wow did it! From the start the reader is immediately thrust into the thick of the story, the reader will feel as if their breath has been knocked out of them by how fast the reader is pushed into the thick of the plot. I personally love this approach with a novel, especially if it is an action/mystery based one; what is the point in waiting for the action to start? None in my opinion so that is why I love how the excellent author Barb Shadow decided to throw her readers into the story; it made for an exhilarating read, one that I would recommend to all of you lovely readers!
Barb Shadow is a newly discovered author of mine who has managed to entertain me from start to finish, and I confess book lovers that I am kicking myself for not having found Shadow’s work sooner! I am frustrated that I have not before because never before have I been so entertained by a paranormal novel! To write a good paranormal story the reader needs to be fully immersed in the story and feel as if they are experiencing the same events as the protagonist(s) and Shadow manages to accomplish this with her writing in A Step Into Darkness, so Shadow is most certainly worthy of an abundance of praise.
Not only is Shadow an outstanding writer for her ability to thrust her readers into the thick of the story, but she also is because she was able to describe all of the events that unravel perfectly. Every event and moment and even place is flawlessly described with a wealth of detail which in turn keeps the reader turning the pages.
Overall A Step Into Darkness is a gripping novel that is guaranteed to keep readers entertained for hours on end so I, of course, have to award the story five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers; you won’t regret it!
