Book Review: The Shadows of Hades by Paul. C. Williams.


souls are dragged from the afterlife and placed into the form of a young boy. A community must battle the dark powers in the surrounding magical forest where death itself is torn apart, and the fabric of the universe comes undone. Within The Shadow of Hades, four stories will combine to answer the question: β€œHow far will we go to vanquish our personal demons?”

So, how should I start? This book is little complex(to me). The book mainly has stories of four different people and it shows how each of their story entwines with others by exploring many themes set in a land walled of from rest of the world, where witchcraft exists but is illegal.

What I liked most about is the writing. Really loved how the author had done an admirable job on the writing, worldbuilding and of course flawed and complex characters. The author took time to create arcs for characters and their situations. The only thing that bit off was  the slow pacing. The pacing was really, really slow but in a good way.

Overall I liked this one and Recommend it of you like dark paranormal fantasy.
