The Shadowing: Hunted
I really enjoyed this book. It was dark and creepy with beings that come straight from horror movies. Callum of course is your typical loner teen with abilities that he keeps hidden from everyone. He sees ghosts but that's not the only strange thing about him. Callum is a lot more special than he thought and when a strange creature begins to hunt him and other children around the area, Callum has to confide in someone. He picks Melissa, a girl that's interested in all things dark; ghosts, vampires and witches. To his surprise, she's not shocked, she becomes a willing battle partner. I liked their relationship and for once I was quite glad to see that these two characters didn't have a rushed kissing scene, neither declared their undying love for each other. They just were. They were two characters caught up in something neither can control and neither want to be involved in. That alone made this novel a very refreshing read.
It's also refreshing to see a boy have to deal with mystical powers and strange otherworldly beings because usually, we read about females that must deal with these things, females and a boy that wants to desperately protect her because he loves her so much. This book is just a refreshing read and not to mention, quite creepy. Overall a great read. I am really looking forward to the next! I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review.
