Book Review: The Shadow of All Things by Allen Houston

The Shadow of All Things (Elyuum Book 1)
by ALLEN HOUSTON

Synopsis:
A monstrous evil threatens humanity
When a man in a torn trench coat warns college-student Evelyn Cheng that something evil is coming down the tunnel where their subway train has stalled, she is ready to write him off as crazy until the lights flicker and the terrifying creatures appear. Through him, Evelyn discovers she is a seer and that a war between good and evil is raging in New York City among her kind and the mysterious, otherworldly Elyuum, who seek to conquer all of existence.

My Review:
This is the first book in another gripping series by Allen Houston. You follow Evelyn and other well written characters as they battle these Elyuum creatures who want to destroy all the seers and take over. I liked the read and was captured by the author's world and characters. The paranormal aspects were truly unique and I appreciated this aspect since the market is flooded with same old stories with different character names. The read for me was quick, dark, and rousing, in all the good ways. More should read Allen's Books he can write well and with a lot of originality.
