The Shadow House by Anna Downes

Alex left her abusive husband and settled in a rural, eco-friendly community that was to be peaceful.

It wasn’t that peaceful when Alex finds a box with a dead animal in it and other odd things happening as each day went by.

Are they really safe from her husband, other people, and things?

Then we meet Renee and her family - the same things seem to have happened to them along with a kidnapping of their son.

Somehow Renee’s story and Alex’s story were related.

THE SHADOW HOUSE was very confusing and very dark with odd, angry characters.  I actually couldn’t follow the story line until half way through the book.

It also had too much of a sci-fi/paranormal feel for me.

I honestly wasn’t a fan and was disappointed because I really liked her first book.

I do have to say the last quarter of the book redeemed itself. 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher for an honest review.


  1. Have you read this book?

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. I am curious about this one, but I think I will pass because of the sci-fi paranormal elements. Thanks for sharing.

    1. That aspect made me not like it as much. I don't read those genres.

      Thanks for commenting, Laurel.

  3. Your honesty is refreshing. The book cover though is amazing

    1. Yes...the cover is amazing.

      Honesty is the best policy. :)

      Thanks for your comment, Leigh.
