D.S. Hellen’s ‘Chasing Evil’s Shadow’ Review/Giveaway (CONTEST CLOSED)

(3 signed copies of Chasing Evil’s Shadow Giveaway Below: Please read review first)

Chasing Evil’s Shadow

D.S. Hellen created a world in which nightmares walk. As most of you know, I am a scaredy-cat lol, and I usually do not read horror books, but Chasing Evil’s Shadow is one I let slip through the cracks…and I am glad I did. This book kept me awake long after I finished the last page, as I lay in bed and looked in the shadows for the Cipes. The fog that I wake up to most mornings at my house became less about the beauty of the morning and more about what faceless, soul-sucking creatures could be lurking out in it.

The Traveler and the Hunter hunt the Cipes, which are soul-stealing demons that are from a different realm. Cipes are brought to our realm by the souls that scream to be taken, such as the worst people that humanity has to offer. When they are brought here by those souls, other souls along the way hang in the balance. The family members of the people whose souls get taken suffer horribly because of that. Along the journey the Traveler and the Hunter meet two men whose lives are intertwined with their own. These two men brave all sorts of battles to keep their souls intact, while grieving for the loss of many of their loved ones along the way. The characters of this book make it as you will really relate to them. Some of the scenes will have your stomach feeling uneasy and nervous. D.S. Hellen also takes some of lives more private moments, and makes them perverse, not in a sexual way, but in a super creepy way. It all works with the subject of the book though.

Pick up this book and journey with these men on an adventure that will have you holding your breath, looking over your shoulder, and hiding inside when you see creeping tendrils of fog lingering outside. I give this book four stars for creativity and for making it hard for me to sleep at night! It is well-written and the short chapters make it an easy, page turning read. It is also the first volume in a series and it leaves itself wide open for the next installment.

Quotes from the book:

“Your kitty lost his head. You get to keep yours…but your life is mine.”

“A thick fog draped over him, like it was trying to hide him or something, and I thought it was going to take me too.”

“Recently, everything had more flavor, colors were brighter, and the smells were more intriguing.”

 Once again, if I have talked you into reading this book, please leave a review where you bought it. Every review helps the author. I will place a link for the book below the cover.
