Stella Coulson - Whitby After Dark

*Contains adult/sensitive themes
**Review by Susan

Lenore Lee wants nothing more than to make new friends in her new town of Whitby, Yorkshire, and to forget about the disturbing dreams that hold her captive at night. But what she discovers in Whitby, might be even more disturbing than the dreams. Dreams which may hold the key to her survival in the hidden world of the Supernatural...

''Dreams of Death may be the only thing that can save her life''

Lenore is settling into her new school, new life and new friendships as she moves to Whitby with her mum and Stepfather, Adam. But the story line had me gripped from the first page. Her stepfather, Adam really would be everything he lived up to be. A true monster.  

He played the role of family man so perfectly. He acted like he possessed compassion; he used to do odd jobs for elderly neighbors, fixing leaking taps and putting up shelves. He even used to be nice to me. He was the nearest thing I’d ever had to a father. Mum loved him so much. If she knew, it'd break her heart. 

As Lenore gets closer to her new group of friends she learns more about herself and her new friends.
But would there be a happily ever after after all she had been subjected to?

I can't say I disliked this book, because I didn't. I love paranormal reads. But I don't think I had enough time to get a feel for the other characters. The story however was good. I just couldn't help but feel I wanted a bit more to fill in some of the faster paced parts.  

3.5 star rating for this story and see where Stella Coulson takes this story next.
