Shadows of the Woods
Duncan Thompson

Book Blurb

Faceless shadows, a night that will never be the same, and a sinister force. If you go down to the woods tonight, you’re in for a sinister surprise.

When a stag party decide to camp in the woods, they soon discover that a malevolent force has them in their sights. As the unknown creeps ever closer, Joe and his friends must survive. To survive, Joe must learn to fight. If he fights, he could lose it all.

A rollercoaster ride of blood, sweat and tears, Shadows of the Woods will keep you hooked, all whilst throwing nostalgic homage to slashers of the late seventies and early eighties.

A Night Terror that you won’t be forgetting any time soon.

About Duncan Thompson:

Duncan has spent most of his life in a small market town in West Yorkshire — the same town in which most of his stories are set under the guise of Ravenfield. Duncan has been writing works of fiction since the age of seven. In those early days, his stories often involved himself and his friends being transported to fantasy worlds. However, as a teenager, Duncan fell in love with horror movies and his writing took a whole new direction.

Duncan still lives in West Yorkshire with his partner and their two young children. He also has slight obsession with Spider-Man and the actor Bruce Campbell, as well as having an addiction to vinyl records, coffee and Lego.

My Review

When I read the synopsis about Shadows of the Woods, I knew I had to read it.

I read this in two really dark evenings and at times I had to search the room for shadows.

A very scary, spine tingling read which I loved. My imagination ran wild which makes this a book definitely worth reading.

Characters were well written, and those shadow people, well can’t say much more than ‘shudder’.

I am hoping that there will be more from Duncan especially if the books are like this one.
