This was a short novella and the beginning to The Creature Kid series.The age group of our main character and his friends is 13/14 years old, and I'll be honest, at first I struggled to immerse myself in the plot. This book was a little bit younger of a YA then I'm used to reading, However, at the halfway point I realized that I needed to approach this story from a different angle. I had to stop attempting to see it from an older stand point and see it from the stand point similar to which an adult would read the Harry Potter novels. Once I took on that mindset it allowed me to enjoy the story on a different level.

The premise for the story is interesting and full of mystery. The characters are fleshed out fairly well and I think we get a good feel for our main character and his friends. I felt that the author succeeded in making the teenagers "feel" like teenagers in the manner of their speech and interactions with one another. There's a fair amount of adventure to the story and the band of friends get themselves into some sticky situations. Since this is the first in a series don't be looking to get any answers to most questions just yet though.

I would recommend this book if you're looking for a quick entertaining read. Since it is meant to appeal to the younger crowd I would be inclined to recommend it for the teenagers in your life especially if they have a bit of a dark side.

It kept me reading. I couldn't stop. I liked everything about the story. It was an emotional rollercoaster. Because of a few curse words, I would suggest this is a 13 and up book. It was a good mix of action and drama. I'm thrilled this is part of series because it was so interesting. This review was written by an eleven year old girl.

This story made you think at first it was going to be about a normal life of a normal high school boy. That all changed when he got wings out of nowhere. Things get weirder after that.

Although this book ends on a cliffhanger, it's always good to wonder what could happen in the next book. Would this make a good movie? Probably.

I found few errors in spelling and punctuation. Other than that, you did a great job.

This was a fabulous book. From the first chapter where you read what seems to be a lab experiment gone terribly wrong the action never stops. There is a lot of humor built into the book that will definitely grab middle grade kids. Anthony Dimair has started high school with his best friends. However, in addition to the normal teenage angst he suddenly sprouts wings and doesn't know why. The author has created characters that are very believable in their actions. You get a feel immediately that they are teens. He has created a plot that will keep you reading from beginning to end. I read the whole book in just two hours. I was surprised by the way the book ended. I didn't want it to end that way. However, I have to say that since this is the first book in this series that it definitely had a great ending. I can't wait until the next book comes out. I am sure this is a book that my students will definitely love. I can't wait to introduce them to it tomorrow.

I received a copy of this book for review. The opinions expressed here are mine and based on my reading of the book.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was a good read for children and adults alike. It was very clean and free of profanity but there was still a little romance and lots of action and mystery to keep you engaged. I found myself wanting to read it later into the night than I should. I stayed up too late one night trying to find a good place to stop. The end certainly left you hanging and that is good in a series, it makes you want to get the next book right away. I will certainly read the next one in the series.

Shadow of Darkness by Rashad Freeman is a novella length story introducing Anthony Dimair. At first it seems like Anthony is just a normal highschool kid until one day he sprouts gigantic wings from his back. Soon after he finds himself under surveillance by mysterious men and strange things start happening. He and his friends decide to head out to try to reach his uncle with the hopes that he can shed some light on the situation.

This book seemed to me to be more of an introduction to the series than anything. The characters got pretty well fleshed out and there was a good amount of details revealed, but I didn't really think any questions were answered. We know that Anthony has wings, but the book stops before there are really any answers revealed. I understand it was most likely to build anticipation and was very successful in doing so, but I would have liked to have gotten a little bit of the mystery revealed.

Despite being left hanging a bit by the first book I have been keeping my eye out for the sequel. Most likely I will check it out when it becomes available to see what is really happening with Anthony and his friends. I know this sounds a bit vague, but I really don't want to give any of the ending away so I can't really cite any examples. One other thing to note is the copy that I read is an older version so I'm not sure if there were any major changes made to the book other than the cover and the title.
