from Darcy Coates
I’ve just finished reading Silence in the Shadows the final book in the Black Winter Series by Darcy Coates and boy, talk about a nail biter!!! I believe my fingers were tired from clenching my Kindle at 2 am when I reached the ending. Warning . . . It has a bit of gore, not normally my thing, but not to terribly bad and is a bit on the tense side in parts. Not for the faint of heart!
I’m always excited to start any book by this author as she draws you in right from the beginning and keeps you there till the very end.
Clare remembers the cold. She remembers abandoned cars and children’s toys littered across the road. She remembers dark shapes in the snow and a terror she can’t explain. And then…nothing.
When she wakes, aching and afraid in a stranger’s gothic home, he tells her she was in an accident. He claims he saved her. Clare wants to leave, but a vicious snowstorm has blanketed the world in white, trapping them together, and there’s nothing she can do but wait.
At least the stranger seems kind…but Clare doesn’t know if she can trust him. He promised they were alone here, but she sees and hears things that convince her something else is creeping about the surrounding woods, watching. Waiting. Between the claustrophobic storm and the inescapable sense of being hunted, Clare is on edge…and increasingly certain of one thing:
Her car crash wasn’t an accident. Something is waiting for her to step outside the fragile safety of the house… something monstrous, something unfeeling.
Something desperately hungry.
