Comments Shadowshift

  • Paul Nelson

    Chet is a shifter, we first meet him at his day job in a store, scoping customers out with the intention of robbing them. He checks their ID when they buy cigarettes, then engages in a bit of stalking until opportunity knocks and well, he doesn't knock so to speak, he turns into a cockroach and limbos under the door. 'He closed his eyes and cockroaches invaded his mind’s eye; hundreds of them, crawling over each other. Antennae twitching. Jagged legs scurrying.' He then turns back and robs [...]

    Chet is a cockroach that works the register at the local Circle K. His daughter Hannah has gifts that she is just beginning to understand. After things go sour during home burglary, Chet mysteriously disappears and finds himself trapped in the Theater of the Lost. If he can find his way out, Hannah and her new family are going to be in grave danger.I must admit that after I read the synopsis for this one I was a little worried it would be all Twilight shape-shifter lame. It was not. It took a wh [...]

    SHADOWSHIFT begins with an riveting prologue that raises many questions. After this, we jump right into the heart of the story. Giglio takes us from past, to present--alternating between the viewpoints of Chet (a thief able to shape-shift into small creatures/objects), and his daughter, Hannah (who has her own ability to manipulate inanimate objects with her mind). Along with them is Chet's mentally abused wife, Tina--who wants nothing more than to be free of Chet and to find happiness for herse [...]

    This was the third book by Peter I have read. The story starts out when a man named Saul Chaplain gives this boy to Ray and Molly Mitchell. Tells them rule one this is not an adoption. Then tells them the boy was always yours and gives them the documents to prove it. The boy is six years old and hasn't spoken in months. Then he says final rule I was never here. Now the story goes to a man named Chet who works at the store Circle K. He has a wife named Tina and a daughter named Hannah. At the sto [...]

    Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Chet is a shifter and low life thief, Hannah is his daughter and has inherited some of his supernatural ability. Hannah's mother, Tina, dreams of escaping the abusive marriage she finds herself in wanting to protect Hannah from Chet as he becomes more volatile.When a job goes wrong, Chet finds himself trapped by Hannah in another dimension where he learns more about his past and how his life could have [...]

  • Andi

    Shadowshift is a solid read from an author who had me at When We Fall. I'm not typically a fan of the shapeshifting/fantasy genre but this one was not too over the top or overwhelmingly fantastical. The story starts out with the rather cliche story line of a baby being dropped at a doorstepbut that is where the predictability ends. Like When We Fall, the characters are well fleshed-out and despite their special abilities -- very human. Peter Giglio has a very keen understanding of the human soul [...]

  • Bob Milne

    Shadowshift is a novel that opens with an ominous, ambiguous sort of scene, one in which a shadowy figure delivers a young child to a grateful couple. It could be a back-alley type adoption, a rescue situation, or a child trafficking sort of scenario. The fact that we don't know what's going on serves to immediately unsettle the reader, causing us to question everything that comes after . . . and for good reason.From there, the story leaps ahead, introducing two separate plot-lines that are sepa [...]

    Review copyPeter Giglio is a name I've been familiar with for some time, most likely from his work as Executive Editor of Evil Jester Press and his presence on Facebook, but for some reason, I've just never gotten around to reading any of his work. After reading Shadowshift, I'm going to have to keep an eye out for more from this talented writer.In this tale, Peter has proven himself to be an accomplished storyteller with particular skill in delivering real conversation from his characters, part [...]

    Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/featuresIn Shadowshift, an unsavory figure drops off a child in the home of a couple who are forced to pretend the child is their son. This prologue immediately conjures up several questions. Fast-forward several years to Chet, a cashier who spends his nights robbing hopes by transforming into a cockroach.

    I received an advance copy of Shadowshift from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is said review. This book is published by DarkFuse. Need I say anymore?I have only ever read one other thing by Peter Giglio, Sunfall Manor. Now that I think of it, I don’t know why I haven’t read more. I loved it. So when Shadowshift came up on NetGalley I couldn’t refuse.I’m glad I didn’t refuse.Chet is a shape shifter. He can change into nearly any bug or small rodent. His weapon of choic [...]

    I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.And to be honest, I thought this book was going to be crap. I liked the sound of it from the synopsis but I'd never heard of the book or the author before. But I was pleasantly surprised. The book starts off with two odd men giving a 6 year old child to a couple and telling them to keep him safe. We know he has supernatural powers and he has lost his family. I thought it was a fantastic start to the book and I really wanted [...]

  • Michael Hicks

    I tend to avoid stories with shapeshifter's in the lead, mostly because I tend to find that particular horror subgenre to be a bit lackluster, with contrived machinations and easy outs. However, I'm a big fan of the DarkFuse imprint and trust its editors and authors a great deal. Ultimately, I'm pretty darn happy that I gave SHADOWSHIFT a read!Peter Giglio crafts a might fine narrative here that is well-grounded in its characters, particularly that of teenager Hannah, her mother Tina, estranged [...]

  • Elke

    'Shadowshift' is not long in terms of a novel. But where other books contain expletives or linger with sideshows, this story is just the opposite. Crammed full with events and action, not wasting a single word on meaninglessness. Sometimes I even wished the author would have cut me some slack to get a breathe in between.The plot combines many interesting facets (shape shifting, telepathy, aliens?!, common crime, coming-of-age into a very complex whole, making 'Shadowshift' a fascinating yet dist [...]

  • Lilian Flesher

    Wow, I loved how in this story, there were actually two stories which really made the whole book so interesting. One story is about a couple who are involved in a life of crime, domestic abuse, sad story, upsetting at times but this has its own suspense.The other story being told is about a father and daughter, dad is a shapeshifter and the daughter is gifted with the ability to control electronics using her mind. Whilst dad turns into a cockroach (yeah I know kinda weird choice), and crawls und [...]

  • Robert Mingee

    Shadowshift is a very entertaining story about a race of beings with various special powers, including the ability to shift into various creatures, among other things. The premise was fairly original, and the execution was well-done. I felt like the characters were well-realized, but I did feel like at times they acted in a way that was convenient to advance the plot, but that seemed inconsistent with previous behavior. It was more than could be explained by the characters being complex, IMO.Tha [...]

  • Tim Potter

    Shadowshift by Peter Giglio is a dark and, at times, brutal horror novel. It follows the Mitchell family as they deal with supernatural powers that they don’t fully understand or appreciate. Chet, the family patriarch, is a down and out petty criminal who uses his ability to support himself in lieu of working harder. How his child, Hannah, and her mother Tina deal with the choices Chet makes form the backbone of the story.The first half of the novel is told through parallel narratives. The sce [...]

  • Scott

    Shadowshift is on the surface a story of supernatural beings struggling to live in the world of normals. These plot points are almost incidental to the overall themes of trust, family relationships, and the life of an artist.Peter Giglio has a gift for creating empathy with his characters, even the villains. I particularly enjoyed the family drama concerning Tina and Hannah, a single mother and her daughter, moving in with new boyfriend Kevin. Kevin is just the kind of man that Tina is looking f [...]

  • Aly

    This was an interesting book for me and I enjoyed it very much. This author has a gift at writing I believe. I enjoyed his characters and the family drama in the book. The plot moves along on two different timelines and provides thrills. If you like supernatural thrillers book you need to pick this one up. This book was easy to read and very entertaining. * I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

  • Terri

    I really enjoyed this book . Although the concept of shape shifting is not a new concept shifting into a cockroach is! Different and original Giglio is a fresh voice in the horror genre. I liked his other book Lesser Creatures as well. Shadowshift contains engaging complex characters and a suspenseful horrific story. What more can you ask for?

    Another original novel/premise from a wonderful DarkFuse author. I need to know more about these characters and their fascinating history. A sequel and prequel would do nicely.

  • Clare

    I decided to read this book based on good things I had heard about Peter Giglio previously. I am so glad I did and I definitely wasn't disappointed!Chet can shapeshift and Hannah can manipulate things with her mind, this alone gives the story a good starting point and it almost felt like two books in one. I found both characters to be equally interesting although completely different, Chet is a criminal with a dark past and Hannah is just a young girl who wants to be normal whilst Chet wants to [...]
