Description

THE SHADOWS ARE COMING...

Sixteen-year old Georgia Boone sees evil, shadowy creatures in mirrors. They look like humanoid crows and stare at her with hungry red eyes. Recently, they've been whispering terrifying threats.

Of course, no one believes her.

When Georgia is sent to the UK's most prestigious mental health centre, Brookwood Hospital, she is forced to face her fears and answer the question...

ARE THE SHADOWS REAL OR IS IT ALL IN HER HEAD?

At Brookwood, the supernatural shadows are more present than ever.

When patients start to go missing, Georgia teams up with a mysterious boy who is trapped inside the mirror world. Only with their forces combined can she prove she's not hallucinating. But will she be able to stop the ghostly shadows from seeping out of the mirrors and possessing the human race?




Perfect for the fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments, Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me, Victoria Schwab's This Savage Song, and James Patterson's Hawk.

"A horror story with a difference."

"An exciting paranormal thriller with strong mental heath vibes."

"This felt like the beginning of a new urban legend."

"It had a fabulously spooky feel, like books by Stephen King or Dean Koontz."

Review quote

"One of my favourite things about The Shadow Keepers, besides the every-day relatability of the main character and her detailed circle of allies, is how mental health is shown as not a crux, but as a diversity." - GoodReads reviewer




"The events that take place are so worrying, and they escalate in an increasingly frightening way to culminate in a kick-ass, emotionally satisfying climax." - Amazon reviewer.




"The Shadow Keepers is a wonderfully crafted novel, rich with psychological intrigue and a plot that keeps raising questions. It's like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for teens." - Book blogger




"I couldn't put down this fast-paced, gripping horror, with its shades of Dean R. Koontz. The author does a brilliant job of trapping the reader in the same claustrophobic, frustrating setting as the characters, heightening the need to keep reading." - Book reviewer




"Exploring the topics of mental health, identity, and the shifting paradigms of good versus evil, this novel is a breath of fresh air in an all-too-often crowded territory of stereotypes." - GoodReads reviewer.
