REVIEW: Dark and Shallow Lies

In a small bayou village a group of children was born and they have spent their lives enmeshed. Grey and Elora were born on the same day and have always had an extra special bond so when Elora goes missing, Grey can’t cope until she figures out what happened to her friend. The town is unique in that many of its residents have psychic abilities so our story has some magical overtones. Grey must figure out was Elora a victim of the mystical monster the rougarou or something much more real and sinister?

I really liked Grey and her peers. The setting was so dark and atmospheric. The balance of creepy to mystery was done really well. There are a lot of secrets in the town and they are revealed and come together nicely. I just think this one could have been 100 pages shorter and packed just as much punch. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Have you ever been to Louisiana? What did you think of it? If you haven’t been, would you like to?
