But I just laid there, the blood pouring out of me onto the timber floor, as he’d stared coldly back. Maybe “coldly” is too strong a word. No, his gaze wasn’t frosty, or chilly, or even sharp as a shard of ice. His eyes had been blank.

Shadows: 50 seconds into this story, I already loved it. I could not put it down, it was such a page-turner. I would rate it infinity stars if I could.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.
