Shadows over Somerset by Bob Freeman

Series: Cairnwood Manor #1
Genre: Horror
Publisher: Seventh Star Press
Source: I received an e-copy for review
Michael Somers is brought to Cairnwood, an isolated manor in rural Indiana, to sit at the deathbed of a grandfather he never knew existed. He soon finds himself drawn into a strange and esoteric world filled with werewolves, vampires, witches… and a family curse that dates back to fourteenth century Scotland.In the sleepy little town of Somerset, an ancient evil awakens, hungering for blood and vengeance… and if Michael is to survive he must face his inner demons and embrace his family’s dark past.

Shadows over Somerset is a very entertaining and fast paced-read. Werewolves, Vampires and Witches Oh my! Yes Shadows over Somerset has them all.

Eventhough it is set in the modern day it read like a historical which went very well with the gothic feel. The whole setting and world building were amazing. I liked the story itself very much 

I was not a big fan of the writing stye. It was pretty confusing. There are a lot of characters and points of view and skipping between stories. It wasn't always very clear when the story changed point of view and I had to reread several pages to understand what happened.

But despite this I am very curious to the next installment of Cairnwood Manor.

My rating: 3/5
