Summary: (from goodreads) Once every century, the barrier between the human world and the demon realm begins to break down. Creatures gather, anxiously waiting to cross the divide, to bring death and destruction from their world to ours. This time is called The Shadowing.

Callum Scott has always known that there is a supernatural world out there—he’s seen ghosts for as long as he can remember. Lately, he’s had visions of children being brutally murdered by a terrifying creature. Then the visions start coming true, and Callum realizes that he’s being hunted, too.

Driven by a dark destiny, he must stand against the demons that threaten our world.

And The Shadowing is almost here. . . .

If you like short scary stories, then this book is for you. I have to be honest I had to read it only during the day because it scared me a little. The story was pretty fast paced and held my interest the whole time.

The story is set in an English country side, where Callum, the main character lives with his grandmother. Callum has been seeing ghosts ever since he could remember. He sees them everywhere, especially at the old churchyard. Then one night he has a horrible dream about a boy being murdered by a dark shadow and next to the boy is a message written in blood. After that night, things start to get weird. Several kids are being killed and no one knows why. Then all of a sudden, all the ghosts in town disappear – all but one. This ghost looks like a kid around Callum’s age and has a huge dog next to him at all times. Callum is skeptical about this ghost. He isn’t sure if this ghost he sees is the same one from his dream. Luckily he has a friend who will help him figure everything out. With her help, Callum will discover many secrets about his past and the war that is lurking around the corner. This war occurs once every century and it’s when the barrier of the human world and the demon realm meet. Good versus evil.

I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was really hard to put it down once I started reading it. The ending was a cliffhanger so I know there will be a second book. I will DEFINITELY read it when it comes out. I totally give The Shadowing two thumbs up!
