    Description

    They call it the Academy. A secluded, cliff-top mansion overlooking the rugged Pacific coast. A school for children gifted - or cursed - with extraordinary minds. Children soon to come under the influence of an intelligence even more brilliant than their own - and unspeakably evil.

    For within this mind a dark plan is taking form. A plan so horrifying, no one will believe it. No one but the children. And for them it is already too late. Too late, unless one young student can resist the seductive invitation that will lead... into the Shadows.

    ©2005 John Saul (P)2005 Brilliance Audio

    Loved it!! Will keep you listening!

    My first John Saul book and he had me hanging on the edge in this book the entire way! I can't wait to download another one of his books! This is what you want in a book...you do not get bored.
    The narrarator was excellent also. Since this book was suspensful tale about kids, it reminded me of a Koontz book called The Voice Of The Night. The narrarator makes it really good!

    Good read - Good narration

    This book kept my mind so engaged during a long drive from SC to TN that the hours passed nearly unnoticed. I arrived at my destination before the book ended and found myself looking for an activity to busy my body so I could finish listening to the story.

    The ending was pretty much what I'd expected but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story at all.

    So far this is one of my favorite audio book listens.

    Can't go wrong with this one

    Very entertaining, a little Twilight Zone, a good story and it makes you think.

    Worth a credit.

    If you like John Saul at all, you will enjoy this!

    No doubt - "Shadows" is worth a listen

    I have downloaded several John Saul novels, and have come to the conclusion that most of his works are average, but when he's at his best he rivals Steven King. This is John Saul at his best. It took a little while for me to warm up to the characters, but soon I was on the edge of my seat. This is not demonic or filled with gore. Instead, it is a psychological thriller that ask you to see the world through the eyes of highly intelligent children who are largely outcasts, and there need to be a part of something - even something more sinister than you can imagine. The narrator, J. Charles, does an excellent job of bringing these characters to life.

    Awesomeness!!!

    Most favorite narrator ever, to the point I have begun searching for booms that he narrates. Shadows was the second book I read of John Saul and after reading this second book of his, he became my favorite author. Since then l have read everything of his I can get my hands on. In my opinion, this book combined with J. Charles as narrator, is absolute perfection. I have laughed, I have cried, I couldn't stop listening. J. Charles switches between characters seamlessly. I feel as if I know each character personally and as intimately as if they were right in front of me. Excellent performance by J. Charles. This book is a must have in your Audible library.
    Happy listening...CCinig

    Just ss I remembered It!

    This was such a great story. I was introduced to this novel when I was in 7th grade by our reading teacher. I am sure shecut out the gruesome parts but this book stuck with me. I am now 31 years old and have heard it the second time. It still leaves an impression on me now as it has then.
