Editorial Reviews

Praise for In the Shadows:* "An enthralling, page-turning Gothic mystery infused with hair-raising horror. The well-written text harmonizes perfectly with the lushly executed, haunting images that, at first, seem to have nothing to do with the textual story but are gradually revealed to be an integral part that, ultimately, brings light to the darkest of shadows." -Booklist, starred review* Booklist, starred review, May 2014"[T]he tantalizing mystery...unfolds in two twinned stories: one told in the intriguing text by author White and the second, told in artist Di Bartolo's wordless, enigmatic images that are interspersed throughout the text. The result is an enthralling, page-turning Gothic mystery infused with hair-raising horror." -Booklist, starred review
