The Shadowing sequence is not for the faint-hearted but for those who dare it's utterly compelling and jaw-droppingly brilliant. Every hundred years the gateway opens between their world and ours. the hunt is on, No one is safe, the Shadowing is coming and Callum who has always know there is something beyond his mortal world discovers something so frightening and horrific that he must stand up to whatever demon force it is that threatens the mortal world and fight. dark, accessible and fast-paced at last we have someone to compare with the master of horror, Darren Shan.


The Shadowing : Hunted by Adam Slater

The girl lies by the canal, her face turned upwards like a stargazer. But she will never see the stars again. Her eyes have been torn out. The rain fills the empty sockets until they brim over, spilling bloody tears down her cold, white cheeks. Once every century, the boundary between the demon Netherworld and the human world weakens. Legions of creatures gather, preparing to cross over, to bring death and destruction. This time is called The Shadowing. Callum has always known that there is something beyond the mortal world - he can see ghosts. Lately, he's started to have horrific visions of children murdered by some terrible, unseen creature. And then the visions start to come true - and Callum realises he is being hunted too. But Callum must stay alive. He is bound by a dark destiny, and must stand against the demon forces that threaten our world forever. For it is nearly time. The Shadowing is coming...

About the Author

Adam Slater doesn't scare easily, which is lucky because his study overlooks a graveyard. He has a degree in Folklore and an unhealthy love of horror films, both of which helped to inspire The Shadowing books. If he wasn't a writer - and if his girlfriend would let him - he'd be a stunt driver.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
