Book two of the Slaughter series, Shadow’s Embrace, picks up after six months of the town being able to relax. Then all hell breaks loose. Debra Adam’s mother is now head of the council and Debra is distancing herself from her mother. The search for Alan Carter to find his sister continues. He is somehow connected to both sides and it plagues him.
The story is wonderfully scary. The dead skin, rotting breath, and boney hands make a new appearance and are creepy as can be.
This is another excellent portion of the story of the people in Melington.
I listened to this book in Audiobook format and I have to say, with Jake Urry’s voice, it is a great choice.
Jake’s voices capture American accents, women, old, and young. It is amazing that he can individualize his voice as he does.
If you like eerie stories about what happens to the missing children, then this is a wonderful series to read, or listen to. It is a great story.
With a bonus of the next book teaser, I know I am hooked. Can’t wait to read more from A. I. Nasser.
Shadow’s Embrace is just an excellent book. The storyline is captivating and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next and to whom, it is going to happen. If you love horror, thrillers, and spooky stories, this series is perfect for you. This book is written like the best books of the past, with fear and tension that keeps you guessing all the way to the end. If you are not a fan of A.I. Nasser, this series will make you one. This series will also endear you to Jake Urry. His narration is amazing. I could say as always, it would not be a stretch. Great story, great narration, and a great choice in audiobooks.
