Review: Deep Shadows by Vannetta Chapman

Deep Shadows sm

In case you missed my review on Suspense Sisters:

Deep Shadows was such an interesting story. Set in a small town in Texas, life quickly changed from normal to disastrous early on in the book. The major disastrous event and people’s reaction to it felt uncannily realistic and plausible.

I really liked the main characters in Deep Shadows and felt so invested in their lives. Shelby was quite the momma bear when it came to her son’s health. I enjoyed watching her learn to let Carter be the man that he was becoming. Max added great direction and thought to the story, as well as wonderful heart. He really worked to protect those he cared for.

The sense of desperation in this novel was tempered with growing unease about what was going on in the world outside of Abney and even the dangers that lurked just beyond the borders of this town. There were many twists and events that I did not see coming. It made for a very exciting story.

Deep Shadows caught me and held on from the first page till the last, and even days later I found myself thinking back to the people and setting, wondering what will be next for them and how they will survive!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Deep Shadows smAll It Takes Is One Night
to Plunge the World into Darkness

Life in Abney, Texas, is predictable and safe—until the night a massive solar flare wipes out all modern technology.

Shelby Sparks, novelist and single mom, had one goal: to provide for her diabetic son. In the wake of this global disaster, her mission hasn’t changed. Only now, medication is a priceless commodity and the future resembles an apocalyptic nightmare.

Max Berkman and Shelby were once sweethearts, but he lost his chance at claiming her love years ago. When the abrupt loss of power ushers him into a leadership role, he rises to the occasion. But his highest priority—to keep Shelby and her son safe—could prove to be the biggest challenge of all.

As the brilliant northern lights give way to deep shadows, Max and Shelby’s faith will be tested like never before. Only one rule remains: Find a way to survive.

In this first book in an eerily plausible dystopian series, a memorable cast of characters must navigate a familiar world thrown into chaos.

The first thing you need to know about me is that I write Fiction full of GRACE. Every plot is different. The characters change. Some of my books are mysteries, others are novellas, and some are romances. But they all are stories of light, hope, and truth. Stories that at least for a moment touch the deepest places in our heart.

Tales that whisper hope. That speak of family and community. That remind us of God and His love.

What do I write? If I had to reduce it to four words, I suppose I’d say I write Fiction full of GRACE.
