Rosie Shadow is the latest release from Louise Worthington and it’s a creepy but very addictive read. It’s the first book in her new series, The Black Tongue series.
‘Whatcha crying for, sissy? Why don’t you grow a pair?’ Rosie says to her mother…‘Send me to school and I’ll rip off your arm! Beat you with the stump.’
Abandoned by her terrorised mother at the age of six, Rosie Shadow will do anything to win the affection of her father Archie, an undead cannibal in charge of Her Majesty’s Prison Shortbury, now operating as a visitor attraction.
Clare is sent reeling into Archie’s arms with the grief of losing her boyfriend in a mysterious car accident when he collides with an ancient yew tree.
The secrets in the Medieval dungeon beneath the prison are under threat when Clare becomes suspicious of Archie’s true identity and his progeny.
Addictive and creepy as hell are two words which perfectly sum up Rosie Shadow. We don’t think we’ve ever read a book quite like it. All the characters have extremely forceful and strong personalities which feel as if they are pouring off the page.
Rosie Shadow is a book that captures you from the first page and is chilling enough it’s not one we recommend you read before bed as it could give you some seriously weird dreams.
