Skinned (The Shadowing)
This title presents unmissable new horror! Black Annis smiles. Her pointed teeth do not gleam; they are black with age and the bloodstains of her countless victims. She looks up at the human child - surely meant to be in bed and asleep at this time of night. Some things don't change. Every hundred years the gateway opens between their world and ours. A human coven has joined forces with the dark beings of the Netherworld. A flesh-eating witch is on the loose. Evil is growing. And Callum is caught in the middle. The Shadowing has begun...
'Hugely enjoyable, exciting and gruesome ... Like Darren Shan, Anthony Horowitz and Jon Mortlock, [Slater is] terrific at using dark folklore to spine-tingling effect' - The Times
Adam Slater doesn't scare easily, which is lucky because his study overlooks a graveyard. He has a degree in Folklore and an unhealthy love of horror films, both of which helped to inspire The Shadowing books. If he wasn't a writer - and if his girlfriend would let him - he'd be a stunt driver.
