Shadows in the Water by Kory M. Shrum Book Summary

Meet Louie Thorne. They didn't kill her--and they'll soon regret it.

When DEA agent Jack Thorne's house is stormed by vengeful drug lords, both he and his wife are shot dead. Only his daughter Louie survives--by using a terrifying power that defies reason.

Piecing together a life in his absence, Louie embraces her gift and her rage under the force of a single need: revenge.

She will destroy the men that took her family. No matter the cost, no matter how many bullets, she won't stop until justice has been well and truly served.

Shadows in the Water (Kory M. Shrum) Book Reviews

Good bookI finished reading this in a day and a half... I was kept on my toes wondering what came next... the characters grabbed my attention and even thou Louie was a cold blooded killer... you felt for her... I liked the twist of the story....Score: 4/5

InterestingThis was a first read from this author for me. It was interesting and a bit different. I really liked it. Will read more..Score: 4/5

One in a hundredI read a ton of these inexpensive books from book bub but I rarely go on to the next book at the increased price. I read two or three books a week and this will be the only one out of the last six months or so that I will follow up on. Lou is sort of like Anita Blake without entire chapters about her sex life. Her character could use a little more development but that’s why you write more books in a series. I’m looking forward to reading more..Score: 4/5

Gritty and Full of SuspenceLou is a tough, full of revenge character, and she’s out to get her father’s killers. In the process she loses part of her humanity but might be able to rescue just a little of it by the end. The book is good. It’s not a feel good story with a perfect ending but looks at how loss can scar a person emotionally..Score: 5/5

NanaBunnieMy husband and I try new authors using e-books where first book is free. We’ve come across many fantastic writers that you don’t always find in hardcover books. J.Robert Kennedy,Randall Woods,Blake a Pierce,and others. This story grabbed me at the beginning and held me up to the end. We will be buying the next Lou book when it’s released. Amazing story line. Please continue with this character. Thank You Laura Kreitzer.Score: 5/5

Best book everrrr!I LOVED Kory’s Dying For A Living series. So after this AMAZING book I want to keep digging. I want to find out more about Lou-Blues story....and whatever happens to her life (and death) and all the wonderfully developed characters along the way. I guess since i just lost my dad, I feel for Louie and fell in love with her by the first couple of chapters. Her story is one filled with pain, longing and a need for redemption. It’s beautifully written, fast paced and grabs your attention in the first page. I’m falling down the La Loon rabbit hole on this one! Thank you to the author for giving me chills...and tears. Lol 👍❤️😘.Score: 5/5

Amazing first book in serieshWow, have read thousands of books in my lifetime but this is one of the most engaging ever. Can’t wait to continue the series. This author is so talented..Score: 5/5

Terribly ImaginativeHas a bit of everything, from Sci-Fi & Horror, to drama & murder mystery, & even a bit of romance. Not only imaginative, but twisted & surreal, with a lead character you don’t know whether to love, pity or envy. One terrific ride of a story!.Score: 5/5

Shadows in the WaterWow! I hardly know where to start. . . This was one of the most spellbinding, well thought out and entertaining books I’ve read in a long time. The heroine (?), Lou, kept me enthralled and you need to read the book to understand why I added the question mark! I look forward to reading Kory M. Shrum many times in the future and expect to be as spellbound in any of the genre she cares to pursue. Well done Ms. Shrum!.Score: 5/5

Shadows in the WaterAs an avid reader, I was thrilled to discover Kory M. Shrum. I first was attracted to her DYING books and was so sad when I completed the entire series. I wanted more...more enthralling characters, more breathtaking suspense, more Kory Shrum novels! And then I found it, the WATER series. I was hooked on the first book Shadows in the Water from page 1. Following the main character Lou Thorne, I was drawn into a life that was horrendous to even imagine. Gaining strength from the terror of her world, she moves through the days hell bent on revenge. Others in her life...Robert King, Aunt Lucy, and Konstantine try to save her but, at the same time, need her to save them. I held my breath as I followed Lou each time to La Loon and what lay in wait for her there..Score: 5/5

“Shadows in the Water” kept me enthralled!This is the first book in a long time that I had a difficult time putting down! The character of Lou Thorne and her ability is a stroke of genius. The story and characters kept the entire novel rolling seamlessly the entire time..Score: 5/5

Save time download the seriesReally enjoyed how the author took time to develop the characters so they became people you cared about, rooted for and wanted to win…even a certain fearful beast!

Shadows in the WaterSupernatural? No, super book! I did not even notice the “supernatural” until I was two thirds of the way into the story.

Unusual premise, superb theillerLoved the book. Lou has unusual abilities, but uses them to her best capabilities. She may come across as emotionless on the outside, but is that just a mask? Stayed up all night to finish the first book.
