Five years after his wife dies unexpectedly John Backman takes his daughter sister in law and her son to Alaska to investigate a haunting But the worst enemy of all may be the xenophobia of the townsfolk of Shida No I lied It's the dark forces that threaten to consume whomever lives in the houseIn Forest of Shadows Hunter Shea takes an unconventional unsuspecting family to Alaska and exposes them to some staples of horror fiction namely ghosts and a haunted houseI've said before that one of Hunter Shea's strengths is his knack for creating likable characters This is very true in Forest of Shadows since I loved John Backman and his family His daughter Jessica was a believable kid who just wanted to be close to her father Sister in law Eve let her own marriage fall apart to take care of her dead sister's family Liam's a toddler and kind of a non factor Anyway what I'm trying to say is that I uickly got attached to John and his family Unlike a lot of horror or thriller novels with their forced hookups I really wanted John and Eve to get together Why you gotta be such a tease Hunter SheaWhile I've never been to Alaska Hunter Shea painted a vivid picture of the life of an outsider in a small town both from the points of view of the Backman family and the local characters like Judas and MuracoThe haunting was a many layered thing not just ghosts wanting people out of their house It had some creepy moments but shit really got real near the end I did not see the ending coming and it was one of those punches in the gut that knocks the wind out of you and folds you in halfForest of Shadows is a creepy good time Hunter Shea does it again Four out of five stars
