With – Good Choice Reading


Shadow Grove isn’t a typical town. Bad things happen here. Children disappear, one after the other, and nobody is doing anything about it. Parents don’t grieve, missing posters don’t line the streets, and the sheriff seems unconcerned.
Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cleary lives on the outskirts of Shadow Grove, next to the creepy forest everyone pretends doesn’t exist. Usually the forest is filled with an eerie calm, an unmistakable graveyard solemnity. But the trees have started whispering, forgotten creatures are stirring, and the nights feel darker than ever.
Something is stalking the residents of Shadow Grove, changing them into brain-dead caricatures of themselves. It’s up to Rachel to stop the devouring of her hometown before all is destroyed and everyone she loves is forever lost.


I picked up The Night Weaver on a late night when I couldn’t sleep and the cover on my kindle caught my eye – turns out after completing the book, I couldn’t sleep for the next few days as well 😀

Kids in Shadow Grove are going missing – being lead away into the forest; but there is absolutely no panic in the town, no search parties, no posters, no frantic parents cam[ped out outside the police station, nada nothing at all.

The only people who seem to be worried are the kids who haven’t been taken yet.

Shadow Grove is a town with a past filled with horrors – horrors like devastating fires, mass poisoning are somehow never recalled by the town members at all, nary a mention never a thought.

Our protagonist’s family, The Clearys and The Crenshaws, their neighbours have a long standing commitment to protect the perimeter of the forest at the edge of the town of Shadow Grove, trying to maintain peace with the magical beings residing in the forest; but more like trying the keep the mischievous magical beings within the forest itself.

For generations it has worked, but somehow, somewhere, something wayward has slipped past its defences and is now trying to wreck havoc in the town or so our protagonist, Rachel Cleary suspects. Teamed with an unlikely group of humans and fae prince; Rachel discovers the existence of something far horrifying known as the Night Weaver – a bogeyman who preys on the very strong emotions of anguish, fright and pain.

It is now up to Rachel to save the town and for that she needs to shed the persona of believing that the town she is protecting is anything but normal – she has her readers with her, every step of the way.

The Night weaver is a dark fantasy standalone, bordering on horror – the author has done a fan – freaking – tastic job of weaving an imaginative story in simple words that grips the reader right from the start, and does a brilliant job of actually kick starting the imaginatio0n of a reader, enough to scare the bajeesus out of them.

The Night Weaver is the perfect pick for the spooky season of October and one that should be on your list of spook-tastic reads for the month of Halloween!

Monique Snyman’s mind is a confusing bedlam of glitter and death, where candy-coated gore is found in abundance and homicidal unicorns thrive. Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words—be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words.

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award® nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the first installment in a dark fantasy series for young adults.
