Synopsis:

Charlotte Silver has been through hell.

Her mom’ s in a coma. She may have caused the death of a young man. And now her friend Avery wants her to tackle going to Prom? Not going to happen, even if she is dying to spend some alone time with her boyfriend, Noah. Instead, Charlotte needs to find some answers to a few nagging questions—why was her family attacked? Will her mother survive? And is there a creature from the Other Side coming for her? Soon enough, Charlotte's search for the truth becomes a race against time. But she may just find the sign she's been looking for all along....

An ebook exclusive Past Midnight series novella.

My rating: ★★★★☆

In this short story, after the attack of the Watcher through the body of Marcus, Charlotte starts seeing a humanoid shadow. This happens each night, and she sees the shadow right across the street from her house! Charlotte is sure that this ominous, creepy shadow has to something to do with the now-dead Marcus, and perhaps, the Watcher himself. Charlotte tries to figure out what the shadow wants. She wants to appease it and get rid of it before someone gets hurt again.

To be honest, this short story wasn’t all that...action-y. However, it was a bit suspenseful, freaky, and whole lot of mysterious! Even though it wasn't as great as the other books, I still found it entertaining and interesting…a definite read for fans of the series.

And the end...... shocking!
