Summer is coming and with it a chilling line-up of horror and thrillers. After all, what’s better with a hot night and a bonfire than scary stories? Not much, especially when we’re eagerly anticipating the release of Marisa Noelle’s YA Horror, The Shadow Keepers.
Sixteen-year-old Georgia Boone has seen the shadow creatures in mirrors and other reflective surfaces since she was six-years-old. But no one--not even her brother, the person she’s closest to in the entire world--believes her. She is all alone in the hellish world where crow-like creatures hunting her everywhere she goes.
When an afternoon of shopping ends in violence and blood, Georgia is sent to the UK’s most prestigious mental health hospitals: Brookwood Hospital. There, she’s forced to face her fears and answer the question:
Are the shadows real, or is this all in her head?
At Brookwood, the shadow creatures are more present than ever and are getting stronger every day. Only with the help of a mysterious boy who lives inside the mirror world might she be able to prove that she’s not hallucinating and stop the shadows from destroying the human world.
Combining the horrors of living inside a former insane asylum with the camaraderie between roommates reminiscent of Girl, Interrupted, Noelle’sThe Shadow Keepers is a chilling exploration of how we treat those with mental illness.
