Publisher's Summary

Before you understand it's happening, obsession takes hold. 

Judd Farnon had no choice but to risk death in escaping prison. If he stayed, he was a dead man. 

An old boarding house where if you are honest, no questions are asked offers him the start of a new life. 

While trying to forget his past and the events that put him in jail in the first place, Judd finds more and more people are showing up in his room at the boarding house claiming it as their own. If this wasn't odd enough, the town itself has a tragic history, and a street of open-air jail cells does not sit well with a former convict. 

When a murder is committed, all eyes fall on him. 

And yet, Judd can't bring himself to leave. But why? 

If you love atmospheric horror tinged with dread, you'll love A Shaded Room.

Get it now...but don't stay too long!

Creepy great story

I loved this super creepy story. The story played like a movie in my mind as I listened to the narrator's voice and imagined the scenes and details the author described through well written words.

Very entertaining offering from European P Douglas

European P Douglas has crafted a horror story that keeps the reader wondering just what is going on until the end. While there were several times I believed I knew where the story was going, it turned out each time that I truly had no idea until the author revealed the twist. Peter Kuhn’s narration brought each character to life and made the story come to life. I received an audio book review copy through StoryOrigin and chose to provide this review

A good storyline

Two things conspired here to lessen my enjoyment of the story. The first one was that I really disliked the main character. And yes, I know, for the story to work he needs to be this aimless, listless person, but still... unlikeable.

The second one was the narrator, who failed to instil emotion to the story.

It's not a bad book, it's entertaining and I liked the concept but I didn't love it :(

Interesting story

This was an interesting story. The narrator was not my favorite as there was something about his voice that I didn't like. This was a story about choices we make in life and the consequences as a result of those choices. It had a nice horror twist about a room in a boarding house that wasn't a normal room. This was entertaining and kept my attention. Makes you really wonder what is behind some of the choices we make in life.

A well-written story from a very good author

A Shaded Room: A Horror Novel, my second read from author European P. Douglas. December seemed to be my month for new authors and January is to continuing the trend. A well written, entertaining read, with intriguing, well-developed characters that I read in a single setting. 5-hours 11-minutes/208-pages. Peter Kuhn's excellent narration adds to a good book's excellence. “I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review." (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).
