Did you like reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a kid? Well now imagine that with a Latin flair… Our Shadows have Claws has a little bit of everything for the light horror fan. Nothing is overly gruesome but instead creepy fun. This collection of stories takes us through some mainstream monster standards like vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts and gargoyles but also gives us some wholly culturally rich beasties too. There’s a fun monster Romeo and Juliet retelling, some found magical family stories and gratifying revenge tales. There’s a little something for everyone in this book and you’ll definitely be left wanting more!
Thanks to Algonquin Books for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.
I read this one in honor of Hispanic / Latine Heritage month. Are you planning to read anything by Hispanic authors before the month is over?
