5.0 out of 5 stars Shadow Bringer by David Calcutt, 31 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Shadow Bringer (Hardcover)
Shadow Bringer is a totally absorbing book and definitely one for all ages. I left my pre-teenage years behind a very long time ago, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

David Calcutt really brings the characters and scenes to life in this psychological, supernatural-yet-realistic tale. He uses vivid descriptions and provides a feast for the senses.

Children will love this book because they will be spooked by the mystical elements, but will also find people,dialogue and emotions they can relate to.
The ending will provide them with reassurance, but with just a little something to expand their imagination...........Teachers could use this for a creative writing lesson or a poetry workshop.

Shadow bringer would make an excellent audio book. Until that happens you must read it!

This review is from: Shadow Bringer (Hardcover)
The Creature is what lurks in every dark corner, in every spooky attic and under every bed at night time. It's waiting for your fears to weaken you so that it can emerge and terrify.
Nathan's dad has left him and now his mum has gone on holiday, leaving him with his uncle and aunt and horrid cousin, Kevin. A series of spooky happenings start to haunt Nathan. A shadow appears above the forest, there are scratching noises in the attic at night. He gradually discovers he is being forced to confront his inner fears in a very real way. A really good read. Recommended for boys of 11+ and anyone else who enjoys a few shivers down their spine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read, 14 Jun. 2009

This review is from: Shadow Bringer (Hardcover)
The tale weaves together the real and the imaginary worlds of the main character, Nathan, with a magical otherworld.

When a shapeless shadow appears above the forest while he is out walking his dog, a series of horrifying events is set in motion. Nathan senses that something sinister is constantly watching him, its shape shifting from smoke in the sky, to animals and even a human being. He recognises that the menacing Creature is feeding on his own inner fears and that he must face them in order to destroy the entity before its power grows to the point that it will overwhelm him.

Characters are very well-drawn and the dialogue authentic. This gripping, atmospheric horror story for younger readers is a very good read, even for adults.
